We love the Langham Hotel in Pasadena and we were happy to be bringing Toni’s vision to life at her wedding there May 27th~
Bringing color to life Toni had shaes of red, purple and pinks in her accent colors for this reception. Special thanks to Victor Sizemore for providing us these stunning photographs.

 

Toni’s bouquet was a gorgeous combination of white flowers  in champagne, ivory and white.

Jamey’s boutonniere matched Toni’s bouquet.

 

 The Bridesmaid bouquets added a splash of color including Red Bull orchids, some blush pink and a touch of green.

 

 

The Gorgeous Cake was decorated with roses and table was scattered red bull orchid and rose petals.

The Centerpieces were chocolate brown square wood boxes filled with Purple Aemonies, mini green hyndrangea, light pink sprays with curly willow and moss .

Featured on Style Me Pretty – Sherryl and Kevin’s wedding

Today, I received an email from Erich Chen from Erich Chen Photograpy letting me know that the wedding for Cherryl and Kevin had been featured on Style Me Pretty.   They chose Rancho del Cielo in Malibu for their wedding.   Having secured the location, it was time to get on it and start gathering props, purchasing vases and other materials to turn their vision into a tangible reality.   Cherryl and Kevin had an idea of what they wanted and they went for it, all the way.     Thank you for making us a part of your team and entrusting us with your florals and decor.   A big thank you to Erich for understanding their vision and capturing it with such great images, you were a pleasure to work with.

Once again, I feel honored to see another of our weddings being featured by such well known wedding blog, but most of all, I am deeply happy for Cherryl and Kevin.  Having their wedding featured like this, really shows them that as tough as it may have been to take on all the “Do It Yourself” elements they wanted for their wedding, at the end it paid off.  Now, their wedding is out there for everyone to see and admire.  Congratulations Sherryl and Kevin, you deserve it!  

Here’s the link to their wedding feature:  Sherryl and Kevin on Style Me Pretty

Angelica and Everto’s Wedding – St. Regis Resort, Monarch Beach, CA

This wedding took place in the renowned St. Regis Resort in Monarch beach.  The location alone is gorgeous, but Angelica wanted to put her personal touch to every inch that surrounded her, from the aisle she walked on to the flute she was going to be toasting with, and when it came to the florals, she entrusted her vision to us in the early stages of her planning.  I have to say that I was flattered when I found out that she had retained our services even before securing her wedding location.  She had a clear idea of what she wanted and she challenged every inch of my brain cells to make it happen, from preparation all the way to execution.

On this event we had the pleasure to work with some of the best wedding vendors we have come across, such as Thomas Buckley from Buckley Videography, Monique Atwell from A Signature Wedding and we also had the honor of having Emma from emma jane photography shadowing us along the way.

There are some details from this wedding that I am going to owe you all, simply because Emma was following our crew and I requested for her to only shoot the ceremony and reception for us (I didn’t want Angelica’s photographer to feel uncomfortable by having someone else shooting her bride). Once I get the pictures from the photographer, I will share the other details, such as Angelica’s Bridal Bouquet, the Bridesmaids bouquets, boutonnieres, etc.  For now, I just wanted to give you a “SNEAK PEEK” to what we were doing this past weekend.

In order to visualize the magnitude of the ceremony decor, the structure in the Grand Lawn is 30 feet wide and 16 feet high.  A regular size transit bus is 30 feet long and 9 1/2 feet tall.   In other words, as long as a bus but 60% taller.

 

This structure had a curtain made out of two different types of strands.  One made out of Hand Blown glass bubbles and the other made out of cymbidium Orchids and krystals.   These strands were only 1o inches apart from each other, all the way across.    Flanking the area where Angelica and Everto were exchanging their vows, were 2 large floral arrangements with a core of  white Hydrangeas, white Lisanthius and Ivory roses, completely covered in white Phalenopsis Orchids.   Right above them were hanging 14 inch Pomanders made out of white Lisanthius.

 

 

On the sides of the aisle, we had white wood pedestals with lush florals in white and Ivory flowers. These arrangements consisted of White Hydrangeas, Ivory roses, white Lisanthius and White Phalenopsis Orchids.   Down the center of the aisle, a lush scroll pattern of Dark Lavender petals was created.

 

 

The Registration table was decorated with 4 vases.  The one in the center contained 10 feet white Manzanita branches, the other 3 vases each one displayed a difernt flower/element.  One had White Phalenopsis cascading towards the front, the other one had White Hawaiian Dendrobium Orchids and the last one had a 12″ Pomander made out of White Buttons.

 

For the centerpieces, she had two different designs.   One was a White Manzanita branch with a pillow of White buttons at the bottom with a single Phalenopsis Orchid laying on top.  Bubble glass candle holder hung from the branch as well as Krystal drops.  3 Pomanders made entirely out of White Dendrobium Orchids rested on the branches at different levels.  To that, we added several stems of White Dendrobium orchids directly onto the branches.

 

The Other set of arrangements consisted of a 28 inch glass vase filled with water and a strand of White Cymbidium Orchids floating in the middle.   Topping this glass, there was a large Pomander made out of Hydrangeas and roses with lots of White Phalenopsis Orchids cascading towards the bottom.  Each Centerpiece had 3 sets of tealight glass holders in different heights.

 

The cake was simple and elegant.  with a very nice design on it, we just added some purple heart Phalenopsis Orchids cascading towards the bottom.  A heavy bed of petals surrounded the cake and several sets of the same tealight glass holders.

 

The sweetheart table stud in the center of the room, right across from the cake table with the large white dance floor in the middle.  surrounding the sweetheart table, a cabana covered in White Satin and Off white chiffon with lots of flowers in front of the table and some 12 inch Pomanders made out of white Lisanthius hung from the structure.  Directly behind the Cabana, a wall made out of Plexi glass mirrors was placed, which gave a really nice effect to the area.

 

I have to admit, it was a lot of work, a lot of preparation and a lot of added stress when the location limited our time for setup.  Never the less, it was breathtaking and the biggest reward I received was a Text Message from Angelica the day after that read:

I want to thank you again for Perfection…  My pictures will forever freeze in time how beautiful everything turned out.  :)

Angie, it was a pleasure working with you and I want to thank you for giving us the opportunity of being a part of your wedding.   I’ll see you in the fields smelling the flowers!

Monique and Serj’s wedding – Westlake Village Inn

Saturday we had yet another wedding where the color scheme was white and ivory.   Monique and Serj got married at the Westlake Village Inn.

Once again, we were lucky to have our friend Emma from emma jane photography helping us, she took these detail photos of the florals for us.    Thank you Emma and Josh for helping us build our photo gallery with these great images.

Monique made a stunning bride.


The bouquet was hand tied with Calla Lillies, Roses, and Cymbidium orchids.




The Decor for the ceremony was simple.   We tied a small bouquet of Roses, Spray Roses, Orchids, Lisanthius and greens to the chairs.


We had 2 of these for these for the altar area.   It was windier than expected and they sat on pedestals so we put them up right before the ceremony started.
This gorgeous display had Roses, White Hydrangeas, Lisanthius and Phalenopsis Orchids.

We love when brides have their own ideas and vision.    Monique wanted crystals hanging from her sweetheart table and she brought them to us for placement. 


We made low centerpieces  of White Hydrangeas, Ivory roses, Veronicas, Lisanthius and orchids with some berries and eucalyptus seeds as accents.

 


Adamson’s House Wedding | Jessica and Nick

We noticed a trend this year of the use of white and ivory in weddings.  We love how fresh and clean this can look when pulled together.   Jessica’s reception at the Adamson’s House in Malibu was certaily no exception.  In fact, Jessica injected some lively yellow organic flowers into her flower design which really tied this reception together.

Thanks to dimock images for providing these gorgeous photos for us to share.

Jessica’s Bouquet had a lot of texture to it.   we used white roses, Cymbidium Orchids, Phalenopsis Orchids, white Fressia, Light blue Hyaciths, Stars of Bethelem, White Scabiosa  and some green berries.

Nick’s boutonniere had White Fressia with some green Berry accents.

The Best Man’s as well as the groomsmens boutonniere’s had yellow spray roses, with a touch of berries again.

The Maid of Honor as well as the Bridesmaids bouquets all had yellow flowers.



The Centerpieces were white Hydrangea, Dhalia’s, Fressia, herbs and succulents in yellow and blue, arranged naturally in a hollow Grape Vine Trunk

The cake was gorgeous on it’s own, but we did display the handmade moss ring bearer pillow with the bride and grooms intitals in yellow button pompoms.

 

 

Congratulations to Jessica and Nick once again on their marriage~

Ellen and Joe’s wedding video

Today we received an email from Impressive Creations Wedding Cinematography letting us know that they had finalized the wedding video for Ellen and Joe and they wanted to share it with us.   Their wedding took place at the Sheraton Universal Hotel  and through out the whole video, you can get a glimpse of our florals.  For this particular wedding, we were responsible for the florals, linens and lighting.  One of the fun facts about this wedding is that when Ellen first came to see me, we discussed her decoration needs and as we were drafting the contract, I realized that she was my next door neighbor.   What are the chances, to this day, we still run into each other when I make it home at a decent time and she still has that happy look on her face.   Ellen, if you ever read this post I want you to know that it was a pleasure for us being part of your big day.

Please enjoy the video and thank you for visiting our blog.
