Whimsy and wildflowers at Montage Laguna

May 14, 2024 10:03 am

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


Stunning Ombre at Montage Laguna Beach

The usage of ombre is a perfect way to add visual flow and dynamic design to an event.

We love the crisp romanticism of an all-white wedding. Shabnam and Samer wanted every aspect of their affair at the Montage Laguna Beach to be modern yet lush. We created a nearly all-white design with little pops of fresh, springlike green. The ceremony sofreh featured tall centerpieces dripping with orchids. We flanked each side of the aisle with tall white wildflowers for a seamless look. Along with the clean white aisle and stage – plus stylish upholstered seats for the bride and groom – the overall look was perfection. At the reception, a beautiful arch with cherry blossoms and hanging crystals served as a photo-ready backdrop for the sweetheart table, itself draping with tons of flowers. The reception tables featured... Read More


Real Wedding: Eye-popping Design at the Montage Laguna Beach

sAs wedding design becomes more and more ambitious, we find ourselves playing with the possibilities when it comes to ceiling installations. For many years, the most extravagant aspect of ballroom ceilings were light fixtures, such as chandeliers; but with careful rigging and great collaborators, we can bring drama and style to overhead installations. For this romantic wedding at the Montage Laguna Beach, we designed overflowing waves of white florals and greenery, along with crystal fixtures. We worked with great vendors, including the amazing team at Amber Event Production,to create the overall look. Photos below are by the always-brilliant Jessica Claire.
