Classic Black and White at Hummingbird Nest Ranch

May 9, 2024 2:51 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

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

Spotlight on Green at the Beverly Hills Hotel

April 9, 2024 11:44 am Published by Leave your thoughts

Lighting brings dimension and atmosphere to every event. It’s not enough to just dim the ballroom lights – uplights, pinspots, and in the case of Natalie and Michael’s weddings, spotlights add a powerful impact to an event. Good lighting design allows all the other elements, like florals and decor, to really pop. Natalie and Michael wanted tons of green for their wedding. We surrounded the famous rose chandelier in the crystal ballroom with a forests’ worth of greenery, dotted with white flowers. All along the tables, we added cascade after cascade of greenery and white flowers, as well. All this green nicely echoed the vivid green dance floor and drapery. We lined the stage with tons of gold candelabras, standing... Read More


Curves Ahead at Hyatt Aviara

The simple choice of selecting a table can make a big difference in event design. For Kristen and Sean, ‘serpentine’ curved tables created a modern flow to their reception. The white glossy tables also served as the perfect backdrop for our collection of white, ivory, pink and green flowers. Round tables featured tall round centerpieces with the same loose structure as our other arrangements. The gold rimmed chargers and single blush rose bloom at each place setting gave a touch of quiet glamour to the tables. The ceremony featured an arch that would be perfectly at home in an English garden: lots of roses, and tons of greenery, forming a loose, lush focal point to the wedding. And the bride’s...

Glints of (Rose) Gold at Terranea

Pretty white orchids with touches of gold – including romantic rose gold – made Sarina and Nik’s stunning wedding at Terranea truly stand out. On the Resort’s Ocean Lawn, we set up a beautiful, modern arch with acrylic legs and bordered with lush white flowers. Clear chairs, a crisp white aisle, and lots of white flowers lining the path to the mandaap kept the vibe modern and chic. Inside the ballroom, we played with metallic accents: gold, rose gold, and mirrored elements. Rose gold roses and greenery sprinkled among white orchids hung down over the glossy white dance floor. The centerpieces, including large arrangements on the round tables, featured more gold – and blush pink, as well. Gold chargers, mirrored... Read More


Red Romance at the Majestic Downtown

Red roses signify true love, and we filled Michelle and David ‘s wedding at the Majestic Downtown with tons of them! From the ceremony, where we bordered the chic acrylic chuppah with the crimson blooms, to the reception, where we lined tables and arranged huge centerpieces with more of the gorgeous flowers, red filled every corner. At the reception, black and gold patterned linens and matching menus with a deco-style border fit the vibe of the historical 1920s venue perfectly. We placed large centerpieces featuring a mix of ivory, pink, and red roses on the round tables; we decorated the long mirrored tables with a stylish ombre layout of ivory, pink, and red floral ‘runners.’ For this wedding, red equaled...

White is a powerfully neutral color, allowing the personality and glamour of an event to truly shine. For Dina and Baron’s wedding at the Fairmont Century Plaza, we created classic arrangements with lots of white roses. Along with the plethora of candelabras lining the reception tables and the stunning chuppah dressed with orchids and more roses, lots and lots of candles added a romantic gleam. The wedding was a stunning display of timeless beauty, and we were delighted to be a part of it! Venue: Fairmont Century City Planner: Becker and The Co.

Luxe Romance at Bel Air Bay Club

Blush, ivory and gold make for a light, yet luxe, color palette, especially for a wedding at such a stunning property as the Bel Air Bay Club. We created a lovely frame to the couple’s gorgeous sofreh with tall centerpieces with composed round arrangements; and larger arrangements at the end of the aisle. In the ballroom, we complimented gleaming mirrored tables and upholstered, gold-trimmed chairs with cascades of roses spilling over long tables. Tall centerpieces in tightly composed arrangements stood on the round tables. And the sweetheart table was over-the-top gorgeous with a lush display of more florals. As always, pillar and votive candles completed the look, adding a romantic glamour to the ballroom. Check out more lovely gorgeousness, below!... Read More
