Classic Black and White at Hummingbird Nest Ranch

May 9, 2024 2:51 pm

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

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


Special Touches at Ft. Washington Country Club

April 27, 2023 2:59 pm

A clear tent, tons of flowers, and lots of thoughtful touches gave Bridget and Tyler the stunning white wedding they wished for. First, we created a white-rose arch along the entrance of their church. Along with a dove release, this decor made for memorable photos of their grand exit from the ceremony! In the dramatic tented reception area, rows and rows (and rows!) of white flowers ringed an arrangement of tables encircling the dance floor. Glass-enclosed candles added a romantic flicker to the room. On round tables, we arranged grand displays of calla lilies, orchids, and roses, and long tables featured runners of more white flowers. Guests loved the single rose bloom on each place setting. We always love creating... Read More


A Romantic Hideaway at Hotel Bel-Air

December 29, 2022 1:39 pm

The Hotel Bel-Air is a legendary A-lister hideaway tucked into the hills of Los Angeles. Lauren and Blake wanted their guests to feel like they were in a lush and beautiful retreat. Their wedding took place at the hotel’s iconic outdoor locations – the lake, inhabited by graceful swans, and a lawn nestled among the hotel, where we hung swathes of greenery and flowers along a wood arbor. Along with twinkle lights that echoed a starry night, the feel was truly that of a magical getaway. The ceremony arch featured lots of greenery and pops of white flowers. In the reception space, we hung tons of ruscus greenery on the trellis over the head table and designed pink and white... Read More


Light and Airy Wedding by Mission Bay

December 13, 2022 10:47 am

MIssion Bay is a waterway in San Diego, a picturesque area perfect for weddings. Michelle and JR’s wedding ceremony was not only by this beautiful bay, thanks to the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa And Marina – but their reception took place near another body of water: the pool area of a gorgeous private home! We complimented their venues with reflective clear features – like crystals hanging down an acrylic chuppah. We also wove in tons of white to create this light and airy wedding design. The ceremony featured the stunning chuppah, accented with not only lots of clear crystals, but a rich adornment of orchids along the top. Clear chiavari chairs perfectly complemented the acrylic chuppah. The reception featured... Read More


Pretty Romance at Calamigos Ranch

December 2, 2022 1:07 pm

Calamigos Ranch offers a whimsical, pastoral venue for weddings. Jessika and Adrian married among the dreamy trees and hanging lights in the Pavilion ceremony space; then, guests partied among nearby carnival rides and under Calamigos’ elegant tent. Our round ceremony structure, decorated with white roses, served as a dramatic backdrop for the couple. The natural mix of white flowers and greenery continued through the cocktail hour and reception space. We dressed the fireplace mantel with lots of gorgeous flowers, and moved the ceremony backdrop to the reception space to add visual impact to the sweetheart table. See below for photos by Brett Hickman Photo of this naturally pretty wedding. Floral Design: Butterfly Floral and Event Design Planning: Symphony Weddings & Events... Read More


Winter White Magic in Aspen

November 10, 2022 11:21 am

A winter wedding has its own unique and stunning appeal – especially in the mountains of Aspen. Little Nell served as the venue for Arielle and Caleb’s absolutely gorgeous wedding, a collaboration with the amazing Mindy Weiss and her team. To echo the snow-covered horizon of the ceremony space, we built a chuppah covered with fluffy white baby’s breath, and another white-floral arch leading back to the dinner and dancing space. The all-white theme continued in the reception, with tons of white orchids hanging from the ceiling and classic white rose and orchid arrangements lining the tables.  Dramatic white draping with generous garlands of white flowers shrouded the entryway. Catch all the glamorous magic below, in photos by James x... Read More


A Seaside White Wedding at the Montage Laguna Beach

June 14, 2022 6:06 pm

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


All White, All Beautiful Wedding at the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel

March 15, 2022 2:21 pm

We transformed the ballroom at the Ritz Laguna to a glam, modern all-white wonderland for Tasneem and Adrian’s wedding. Fluffy white orchids hung over the ballroom, which we turned into a crisp white canvas using a glossy white dance floor, carpet, and draping. Mirrored tables and clear seating continued the cool, clean feel throughout the space, and black chargers grounded the overall look. The Ritz Laguna has a stunning ceremony space with an ocean view, and we collaborated on a lovely sofreh that featured the same materials and flowers as the reception. The acrylic stands on the sofreh kept the look modern and clean, just like in the ballroom. Duke Images captured it all, below. Floral Design: Butterfly Floral and Event... Read More


Small Details, Big Style at Hummingbird Nest Ranch

December 30, 2021 1:32 pm

What seem like small details add up to impactful design statements at wedding ceremonies. For Michelle and Ryan’s event, we criss-crossed orchids along the structural supports of their wedding chuppah for a beautiful diamond pattern, emblematic of the bride’s engagement ring and symbolic of their lives joining forever. We worked with a palette of crisp white with mirrored accents, including the chic mirror seating ‘chart’. Inside the reception space – draped to set off the drama of the decor – we lined tables with sumptuous centerpieces and garlands of white florals, cascading down to the floor. The mirror theme continued with Oz chairs and tables. Clear chargers and black napkins completed this stylish, contemporary look. The true showstopper here –... Read More
