Lush Sophistication at Monarch Beach

January 7, 2022 4:31 pm

Event designers think a lot about chairs. Yes, chairs. Back in the day, choices for seating for special events were few – as in, two types of chairs: folding and chiavari. Now, you have chameleon, Louis IV, Ghost chairs…the list goes on! This diverse array of colors and shapes in event chairs gives designers more elements to play with. For Alyson and Philip’s big day at Monarch Beach, we provided rich, textural white florals with touches of greenery to provide a pretty counterpoint to sleek, sophisticated black “Washington” and “Dior” chairs. Along with neutral linens and soft drapery, their wedding reception looked like a classy supper club. For the ceremony, we created a chuppah fitting of the breezy seaside lawn,... Read More


Classic Drama at a Private Estate

December 14, 2021 4:11 pm

A grand staircase. A chuppah fringed with wind-catching flowers. A manicured lawn with a stunning view. Private homes, like the estate where Natalie and Alen wed, offer unique opportunities to our creative team. The property featured wide expanses of lawn and landscaping, allowing us to build a grand chuppah with lengths of orchids to freely move with the breeze. Inside the property, the foyer staircase became the perfect first-look location; we lined the rail with a luxurious layer of white flowers, including roses and orchids. A generous urn piece of white roses stood directly under the house’s stunning chandelier for a picture-perfect start to the bride and groom’s big day. We accented the reception lawn, dressed with gold and white... Read More


Seaside Elegance at Ritz-Carlton Bacara

November 16, 2021 10:22 pm

Bright, pretty florals and a seaside backdrop gave April and Nathaniel’s wedding a breezy yet composed feel. We used delphinium, hydrangea, and roses throughout the wedding, with touches of baby’s breath to add movement and lightness to the look. The intimate ceremony featured a glossy white aisle and a classic arch framing the bride and groom. The arch, in all white, blended with the cool blue of the sea for a stunning backdrop to the wedding ceremony. Springlike florals lined the aisle. The reception featured chic white vases with classically styled collections of roses, ranunculus, hydrangeas, and occasional pops of orchids. Gold silverware, elegant menus, and etched glassware added the perfect finishing touches to the table decor. We love overflowing... Read More


Bright and Beautiful Estate Wedding

October 7, 2021 4:43 pm

Mother nature gives us so many hues to play with, and our clients Sanam and Yoav wanted a bold play of colors for their big day. Their wedding took place at a private home, giving us even more freedom to design a one-of-a-kind wedding.  The ceremony and reception were located in the same area to conserve space; we needed a stunning chuppah to serve as a focal point, and designed a gorgeous arch with thick greenery and coral, peach, and pink roses. A rustic aesthetic influenced the rest of the centerpieces, with sprays of greenery and foliage. Roses, hydrangea, lisianthus, even daisies and touches of fruit made appearances in an array of shades from bright yellow to red to blue. ... Read More


Whimsical Wedding at Hummingbird Nest Ranch

July 21, 2020 5:29 pm

Elegant, romantic, and effortless with a touch of whimsy is the perfect description for Stephanie and Igal’s outdoor wedding. The bride and groom tied the knot under an ethereal chuppah adorned with garden roses and lisianthus, touches of curly willow and bountiful greens against the picturesque mountain backdrop at Hummingbird Nest Ranch. A raised catwalk completely lined with tall, white delphiniums and low greenery created a gorgeous walkway between the stunning chuppah and tall entrance arch that framed the front of the aisle. Adding even more detail and excitement, a custom water fountain was designed among the textured greenery at the base of the arch. Once guests made their final move of the evening into the tented reception space, they... Read More


Chic White Wedding

June 19, 2020 9:45 pm

The chic and romantic reception vibe was created using an all white design approach. We created stunning tall centerpieces complimented by lower arrangements on neighboring tables to add dimension and variety to the ballroom. Mirror-surfaced tables, crystal candelabras, and glass vases paired with gold accents on chargers and candle holders completed the glamorous vibe. Through florals, we echoed this look using beautiful white roses with premium orchids, using both phalaenopsis and dendrobium. Earlier during a sea-view ceremony, on the contrast, we combined the wooden texture of the pergola and chairs with organically styled blooms, branchy detailing, and greenery. The design elements gave a warm and earthy feel to the already beautiful beach backdrop. Don’t miss out on all of the... Read More


Beauty at the Beverly Wilshire

June 17, 2020 7:31 pm

If ever there were a perfect example of a romantic and glamorous wedding, this affair would be it. Using a floral color palette of clean whites and soft greens, along with mixed accents of clear, gold, and silver, the setting was both polished and stylish. Baby breaths, orchids, and roses adorned the stunning chuppah that graced the stage of the grand ballroom. Across the room, guests were greeted by clouds of flowers that embellished the stairs at the entrance. Elegance exuded from the phalaenopsis orchids and long stem roses hanging from luxurious centerpieces throughout the space. Pillar candles secured on top of the long floral bridges added a hint of magic. Katie Beverly perfectly captured the beauty and grandeur of... Read More


Whimsical Black and White Wedding at Monarch Beach Resort

May 30, 2020 11:29 pm

The couple decided on a chic black and white color palette that allowed their florals to shine. They said “I Do” at the Monarch Beach Resort surrounded by friends and family and an array of beautiful blooms. We created overflowing waves of white roses, phalaenopsis orchids, and greenery with a grand chuppah for the ceremony. Moving in the reception, we used the same color scheme, adding tulips, white dendrobium orchids, and hyacinths inside the ballroom. Tall, glamorous centerpieces on round tables were mixed with charming low florals nestled below crystal candelabras on long mirror top tables. Heavy candlelight throughout the room added warmth and comfort to the atmosphere.  Floral Design: Butterfly Floral and Event Design Planning: A Kate Carlson Event Photography: Dmitry Shumanev...

Real Wedding: Tented Elegance at Hummingbird Nest Wedding

May 4, 2019 2:13 am

It takes so many details to design a stunning, one-of-a-kind wedding. For this luxurious Hummingbird Nest Ranch wedding at their Villa location, every aspect of the decor had to contribute to a rich, vibrant palette, from the deep red roses all around the portico at the ceremony to the swags of purple along the tent. In the ceremony area, we surrounded the existing portico with lush greenery and roses, with an aisle border to match. For the reception tables, we designed collections of compotes filled with red roses, and tapered red candles, and mercury votives. Purple napkins, gold rimmed chargers, and dove gray linens completed the look. And of course, we filled the beautiful fountain in front of the Villa... Read More

April 2, 2019 2:24 pm

The Millennium Biltmore has been a backdrop to many of our most lavish weddings. This historic hotel was the epicenter of Old Hollywood and now is a sought-after venue for luxury weddings. The ornate ceilings, draped balconies, and Deco details are one of a kind, providing endless wedding inspiration for floral design. For their wedding flowers, our couple wanted the fresh vitality of a garden with the glam of gold and glass accents. We worked with a palette of whites and ivory, in the form of roses, weaving in lush greenery for a springlike feel. Our design featured our custom metalwork, in the form of candle holders, as well as large bridge centerpieces and opulent urn pieces. Working alongside an... Read More
