Bee and Sly Married!

Happy Wedding Wednesday, lovebirds!

Today, we’re excited to share Bee and Sly’s perfect wedding day. We loved working with Bee and Sly to create their relaxed elegance and romantic wedding.

The celebration was definitely one for the books. So, without further ado, please enjoy these lovebirds’ dazzling soiree!

Nuzzled in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains between Malibu and Calabasas, King Gillette Ranch set the perfect stage for Bee and Sly to tie the knot. King Gillette Ranch offers a beautifully rare view of California’s rich archeological, cultural, and historic resources. Bee and Sly loved the history and architecture of King Gillette Ranch which is why their hearts settled for this venue. The colors we chose for the event varied in deep and muted warm tones like yellow, pink, and wine with green touches. We enchanted the place with greenery to give the beautiful historic venue some life.

With all the neutral tones at the venue, we really wanted the flowers to sing! Enchanted Garden Floral Design created vibrant, beautiful floral pieces, which brought the historic venue to life. We just adore the mix of warm tones, greenery and matte white vessels that EG created for this wedding. Swoon.

With a gorgeous lakeside view, King Gillette was the ideal spot for the couple to exchange their vows. One of the things we loved about this wedding was the couple’s choice of guest book. They used a large map with pins to get travel advice from their guests. So fun! Another thing that made this wedding so fun, was that we veered away from the traditional wedding day structure by starting with cocktail hour! Guests were greeted by their host with a full bar and yummy bites. It served to break the tension and  by the time guests were invited down to the ceremony lawn, they made their way to the “I-do’s” with a smile on their face and a drink in their hand!

We wanted the guest dining tables to give off an easy, elegant, organic, lively vibe (quote a lot to ask of a table-scape). To bring this look to life, we draped soft, light patterned neutral linens over rectangular tables. They were then topped with greenery and gorgeous pink floral arrangements. To keep the whole look feeling clean and modern, we kept the place settings minimal. To complete the look, we incorporated colorful florals and dainty greenery throughout the centerpiece.

We gave the library some love by adding greenery and flowers to bring out the Earthly vibe and added lit candles to create a relaxed elegance feel. The lounge area was set up with mid-century modern pieces and was right next to the bar where guests could easily grab their drinks! Sly is Chinese so we wanted to bring his tradition into the wedding, which is why we added mandarins and red candies to the lounge area where guests could easily enjoy them.

The fun continued with a delicious cake and lots of dancing. These love birds get that not everyone loves cake, so they offered their guests a cereal bar that featured some of our favorites like Captain Crunch and Cheerios. Before the good times came to an end, guests were treated to the perfect midnight snack- pizza! Good times were had by all, especially the new Mr. & Mrs!

Love and A Southern Charm: Macey & Chad Married!

Happy Wedding Wednesday lovebirds!

Today, we’re super excited to share with you one of our most recent and favorite weddings of 2018. It was such a pleasure to work with Macey and Chad to create an intimate, elegant and Southern-charm inspired wedding and we’re so pleased with how the whole celebration turned out. So without further ado, please enjoy these lovebirds’ stunning soirée!

Macey and Chad’s lovely wedding took place at Retreat Malibu. The venue is a private estate located at the top of Santa Monica mountains, making it the perfect location for a beautiful celebration like this. For the couple, they really wanted their fête to be elegant and sophisticated so we went with the classic blue and white pairing as their color focus.

To stick to this classic color story, we also surrounded their ceremony with beautiful lush white roses with pops of baby blue florals.

And let’s not forget about how the couple included their adorable fur-baby, Poptart, as their flower girl which melted all our hearts!

For their reception, we hung up chandeliers and bistro lights to warm up the space. At each table setting, we incorporated these beautiful Southern-charm blue and white chinas which we’re absolutely obsessed with. To complete the look, we used the same white and blue florals and it turned out delightfully elegant.

We set up a super intimate-looking lounge area and brought out blankets for all the guests to enjoy.

And we saved the best for last… The couple had two stunning cakes. The main wedding cake echoed the lace design on Macey’s dress and the groom’s cake (a very southern tradition) that featured their beloved Poptart!

This is it for now lovebirds! We hope you enjoyed Macey and Chad’s beautiful celebration and we wish nothing but the best for their marriage journey!

Love Found in Winter Wonderland: Karla & Lloyd Married!

Happy Wedding Wednesday, lovebirds!

Today, we’re ecstatic to share with you our one last weddings from 2017. It was such an honor working with Karla and Lloyd to put together this stunning and glam celebration last winter, so without further ado, please enjoy these lovebirds’ romantic soiree!

Karla and Lloyd’s lovely celebration took place at the Fig House. The couple wanted their ceremony to take place at night with a super wintery, romantic vibe so we kicked off their wedding with the cocktail hour and ended with an enchanting family-style dinner. While the tradition was defied, the whole night was even the more beautiful and memorable.

For their ceremony, we hung up art deco lighting fixtures as the anchor for the ceremony (did someone say statement piece?) and candles galore down their aisle to create a ceremony that was simply dripping with romantic glow. The turnout was truly breathtaking; the epitome of a winter wonderland which gave us all the feels!

For their reception, we incorporated geometric elements to complement the setting of the venue. We used hexagon marble tiles as place cards for each guest and gold rimmed flatware for a glam look. We garlanded the tables with greens, blooms and varying sized candles in gold vessels to elevate the ambiance of the dinner. As the pièce de résistance, we hung greens and light orbs over the tables. Swoon!

Since Karla and Lloyd are both major foodies, the food needed to be absolutely delicious! The guests left with a full, happy tummy!

Finally, in light of the holiday season, we set up a kissing corner with a mistletoe. It was so much fun!

This is it for now lovebirds! We hope you enjoyed Karla and Lloyd’s winter wonderland inspired celebration and we wish them the very best for their marriage life!

Palm Springs Love Fiesta: Sophie & Aaron Married! (Part 2)

Happy Wedding Wednesday lovebirds!

As promised last time, today, we’ll be sharing with you the super intimate and grand wedding of Sophie and Aaron. In case you missed last week’s post, the couple celebrated their wedding weekend at the Avalon Hotel in Palm Springs where they had 5 events over a 4-day weekend and their celebration was no doubt one of our favorites from 2017. So without further ado, please enjoy Sophie and Aaron’s amazing wedding day!

Sophie and Aaron are a lovely couple from New York and they both have a great sense of design so it was an honor to be able to bring their aesthetic to life. Their vision for the wedding was to have a celebration that was modern, elegant and simple yet luxe so we decided to use neutrals such as white, oatmeal and touches of grey as their color focus.

To bring a super chic and clean vibe for their wedding, we brought in a chuppah overloaded with lush, white flowers and peeks of green leaves; it was truly breathtaking.

One of our favorite details from their wedding was all the customized printed items that screamed fun and grand at the same time. We used gold foil on the programs, menus and table assignment board to match their invitation suite and add a touch of elegance… we loved how they all turned out!

To make the night even more special, we brought in a surprise aquadance performance during cocktail hour which had the couple and guests talking all night!

For their reception, the couple had a family-style dinner. We used long banquet tables paired with delicate white linens for a smooth and clean look. At each place setting, we used 1 green glass as a pop of color. The guests dined under chandeliers, bistro lights, glowing orbs and poms of flowers.

Finally, we also let up a lounge area with a New York nightclub feel to bring the couple a sense of home and it was so much fun!


The night ended with lots of dancing and sweets which gave us all the feels when their celebration was coming to an end.

This is it for Sophie and Aaron’s fete! We hope you enjoyed reading all about the couple’s wedding festivities and we wish nothing but the best for their wedding journey!
