Modern Art at the Langham Pasdena

June 18, 2024 12:05 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

When a couple’s wedding looks more like modern art, you have a singular, one-of-a-kind affair no one will forget! Rana and Babak wanted their decor to be polished and sculptural, and we delivered, creating orbs of green and white florals to border their ceremony aisle and decorate their sofreh with super-cool style. With perfect precision, we laid out the orbs in a variegated, concise pattern all along the ceremony space. From overhead, it looks like an upscale garden filled with modern art! The round motif continued in the ballroom, with green apples at every place setting, and small centerpieces with more precise curves. But we did lean into lushness, as well, with overflowing florals of roses and baby’s breath cascading... Read More

A weddings can be a perfect showcase for a couple’s personality. Vivian and Sean brought vivid colors and cute details to their big day at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort, starting with vivid summery colors, perfect for the early-fall hot weather so common in our SoCal Septembers. Our transparent mandap wedding ceremony structure gave the illusion that our crown of bright pink, orange, and fuchsia flowers were floating, a cool look that allowed the gorgeous seaside backdrop to really shine during the couple’s wedding ceremony. The vivid color palette worked beautifully against the ornate gold details on the mandap, including the gorgeous chairs that the couple sat upon during the multicultural ceremony. The most charming touch: Lego escort cards! The... Read More


Modern and Mirrored at Hilton San Diego Bayfront

June 4, 2024 10:27 am Published by Leave your thoughts

Simple doesn’t mean underwhelming, certainly not for this stylish wedding at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront! For their multicultural ceremony, Radhika and Justin wanted lush greenery but not in too rustic a style, sticking to just white for their color palette. For the aisle flowers, we stuck to mostly greenery with a few pops of flowers, and the mirrored pedestals added a sleek edge to the overall feel. Our mandap was mirrored, too, with a generous, full border of white flowers draped across, including graceful strands of white orchids. The mirrored elements literally reflected the water of the bay facing the ceremony space. Focusing on just white for the flowers and using mirrors as an accent gave a sense of... Read More

Sleek, shiny mirrors always bring a modern edge to a wedding. For Cassie and Chuckie’s celebration at Terranea Resort, we constructed a wedding arch of mirrored legs and softened it with a border of roses, hydrangeas, and phalaenopsis orchids, all in crisp white. We clustered a generous border of more white flowers along the base of the arch. Along with the white glossy stage and a glamorous mirrored aisle, the ceremony area had a sophisticated and polished look. We carried this theme into the ballroom, complementing the mirrored tables with more white flowers. The round tables featured tall candlesticks and clusters of smaller white floral arrangements. Single orchids hung delicately from above the dance floor, encircled by a border of... Read More


Delicate Baby’s Breath at the Beverly Hills Hotel

You’ve never seen baby’s breath like this. The delicate flower grows in bunches full of tiny, delicate little blooms. Clustered together, they can be ‘sculpted’ to form beautiful and innovative shapes. For Koko and Victoria’s wedding, baby’s breath was the key to bringing our unique vision to life. We gave the bride an unforgettable backdrop to her preparations, bringing a floral wall into her getting-ready room. We also lined the spiral staircase at the home with white roses, adding a luxe look to her walk down the stairs to her ride for to the church. For the ceremony, we lined the church’s aisle with tasteful blush and ivory roses. Large urns framed the altar. We echoed the look of the... Read More


Whimsy and Wildflowers at Montage Laguna

May 14, 2024 10:03 am Published by Leave your thoughts

A rainbow spectrum of soft shades of purple, yellow, coral, and pink created a luxurious yet playful setting for Marisa and Sahand’s September wedding at the Montage Laguna Niguel. Flowers like larkspur, delphinium and other wildflowers bordered the ceremony area and the aisle. The arch took on a more luxe feel, with roses anchoring the look. Daisies, chamomile, and cosmos added touches of texture and movement, along with accents of greenery. We also decorated the sofreh, designed by Afsaneh Sargordan, with more cheerful wildflowers, in shades of pink and lavender. Pastels filled the ballroom, from the clusters of roses, wildflowers, and dahlias on the table, to the flowers spilling from the ceiling. We added large magnolia trees for a whimsical... Read More

Classic Black and White at Hummingbird Nest Ranch

Black and white served as a sleek, chic backdrop for Stephanie and Touraj’s Hummingbird Nest Ranch wedding. A multicultural celebration, we provided a thick border of roses and greenery for the Persian sofreh at the ceremony, along with accents of wildflowers, roses, and greenery lining the aisle. While their reception was on the outdoors lawn, it was as sophisticated as the most glamorous ballroom wedding. A black and white checkered dance floor by MTB Rentals set the tone. We followed suit with crisp white florals, set on black linens to continue the look. Lots and lots of candles and chandeliers and twinkle lights by NFP added even more style to the “room” for a super-cool event guests won’t soon forget.... Read More


Beachside Beauty at Terranea

April 30, 2024 12:54 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

When we think of the beach, we think light, airy, and pretty. That’s exactly what Ramsey and Amy asked for when we designed their July beachside wedding at Terranea Resort. We focused on white cherry blossoms as our main inspiration, creating trees from scratch with branch after branch of this delicate flowering tree. Two trees graced the beginning of their wedding aisle, and more cherry branches perched asymmetrically on the wedding arch that served as a backdrop to their vows. In the ballroom, more trees towered from round gold-and-mirrored tables, complemented by ivory and gold chairs. More white flowers served as ‘runners’ in the middle of long dining tables dressed with crisp ivory linens. And finally, the star of the... Read More

A Whimsical Forest at the Fairmont

Guests found themselves in a chic and stylish forest when they walked into Bahar and Simon’s wedding reception. The ballroom at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar was totally transformed with lush greenery hanging from the ceiling and a tree made of hydrangeas greenery soaring from the round bar. Whimsical white balls sprung from round tables, and the long tables featured sloping ‘runways’ of white and green roses. Along with the greenery installed above the glossy white dance floor, we added moss covered shapes, such as cones, balls, and cages; and pops of white flowers. Hundreds of votive candles lined the floral pieces to sure they didn’t get lost in the darkness, glimmering beautifully in the dramatically lit room (illuminated by... Read More


Stunning Ombre at Montage Laguna Beach

April 19, 2024 11:43 am Published by Leave your thoughts

The usage of ombre is a perfect way to add visual flow and dynamic design to an event. For example, in Courtney and Charles’ wedding, our design incorporated a gradual flow of hot pink to blush pink to ivory flowers all along the wedding aisle, gradually drawing guests’ eyes to the stunning ombre wedding arch. The arch featured the same color palette as the aisle, and formed a ‘ceiling’ of pink orchids sheltering the couple as they exchanged vows. The raised white aisle, clear chairs, and a white grand piano with floral accents rounded out this sophisticated look. The ceremony space overlooked the Montage Laguna’s jaw-droppingly gorgeous fountain and pool. In the ballroom, a rich emerald green created a vibrant... Read More
