Ahhh, we are gushing over this AMAZING tabletop inspiration collaboration we created together with the ladies of Couture Events. We paired glamorous metallic tones and rich textures together with a soft garden palette of ivories and fresh greens. A huge thank you to The Youngrens Photography for capturing it so beautifully! Lush vines were paired with garden roses, tulips, hydrangea, roses and other like blooms.
Custom gold sequin wrapped vessels were clasped with delicate, glittering rhinestone brooches. Our vintage gold candelabras were lit with taper candles and our large centerpiece was placed atop our custom glass blown stand on a vintage mirrored platform.

We have been dying to share this stunner of a wedding! It was such an honor when Amy, owner of First Comes Love Weddings & Events, asked us to design the florals for her stunning seaside nuptials. With a modern palette of bright purples, lavenders, ivories, silvers and grays, we created a candle studded and crystal filled event that was the true definition of the word “glam”.
Guests stared at the gorgeous, Pacific Ocean as they watched A & E tie the knot! We framed the couple with two of our glittering crystal candelabras placed atop our ivory pillars. Large florals were placed atop each candelabra, dripping in exotic white orchids, tulips, various roses, hydrangea and other like elements. Delicate rose petals were placed down the aisle in a whimsical swirling formation. Hire elegance brought in thee amazing white custom chairs that brought the contemporary look together so beautifully.
The reception was truly breathtaking. Tall, dripping purple, lavender and ivory centerpieces placed atop crystal candelabras were carried by our custom ivory taffeta wrapped pedestals, complete with glamorous brooch accents. We hand placed petite brooches on each candle holder, adding elements of bling and sparkle. Short centerpieces were created within vintage mirrored boxes, custom wrapped in ivory taffeta and surrounded by layers of glowing candlelight in mercury glass, clear glass and crystal cut vessels. Gorgeous draping, linens and beaded charger plates by Concepts Event Design paired perfectly with A’s palette.
we fabricated a driftwood chandelier to hang above the cocktail hour lounge furniture, dripping in purple phalaenopsis orchids and glittering crystals.

Planning a wedding from afar can be a difficult and even frightening process without the proper team of professionals to help guide the way. Lindsay and Steven came to us via the fabulous Cynthia Zatkin, of Cynthia Zatkin Events and they truly could not have asked to be in the hands of a more knowledgeable and caring coordinator/planner. Together with Cynthia, we created a fantastically sophisticated affair, dripping in creamy ivories, rich golds and glittering accents.
L chose to carry a fragrant, all ivory bouquet of textured gardenias, spray roses, hydrangea, various roses and other elements, her bridesmaids wore her accent color, teal.
Set against the perfect backdrop of the Prado Ballroom at Balboa Park, the reception was true timeless glamour realized. Textured gold La Tavola linens and napkins were paired with gold rimmed charger plates, glasses and our pairing of both mercury glass and clear glass candles. We created two different centerpiece styles, with some being tall atop shaped glass stands with Swarovski crystal accents and some short to the table with tall candle holders rising from within the lush, floral centerpiece.
The escort card display was created on vintage shutters that we accented with gently sprawling vines and petite white blooms to appear as though they were naturally blooming
A traditional ceremony was held at the stunning Immaculata at USD. HUGE thank you to the fabulous photographers at Cole Joseph Photography!

We love creating the perfect organic-glam wedding about as much as we adore the iconic Hotel Del Coronado. When the two are paired the result is absolute MAGIC! D & K chose a neutral palette of soft ivories and creams paired with fresh greens and rustic elements. Mixed metallic vessels, candlelight, shimmering linen and crystal candelabras were used to pump up the glam.
D carried an organic, free-flowing bouquet of various ivory, white and green blooms with organic accents.
The gorgeous, coastal ceremony took place on the Windsor Lawn, where we designed our wood stained canopy with a sheer overlapping silk draping and floral accents. Glittering mini chandeliers were placed down the length of the aisle, complete with free-flowing floral arrangements. Our two glittering free-standing crystal chandeliers were placed at either side of the canopy, adding a bit of glittering glamour.
The candle-studded reception was dripping in details, with shimmering crystal candelabras set against organic, free-flowing garden centerpieces of orchids, branches and succulents.
The sweetheart table was topped with a lush, dripping floral arrangements of orchids and various ivory and cream blooms paired with fresh greens and mixed metallic candles.

It truly does not get more beautiful than the amazing backdrop at Pelican Hill Resort in Orange County, California. Our bride Elizabeth chose a lovely color palette of soft ivory, cream, champagne, blush and peach tones, complete with fragrant garden roses, exotic orchids, rich taffetas and glittering brooches.
E chose a bouquet of garden roses, stock, roses, spray roses and ranunculus finished with a champagne silk wrapping, delicate lace appliqué detailing and a glittering rhinestone band placed along the bottom of the bouquet. The men wore masculine, structured ivory calla lilies paired with soft blooms to compliment the bouquets.
The ceremony took place by the lovely Pelican Hill rotunda, framed by four of our custom ivory pedestals accented by French lace detailing and custom mirrored platforms. Our delicate glass stands were topped with lush, draping color blocked centerpieces created in soft ivory, cream, champagne, blush and peach tones.
The spectacular reception was studded with details, combining gold tones with mirrored accents, glittering brooches and soft blooms. We created a mirrored runner across the length of the head table to amplify the candlelight and create heightened drama at the focal point of the room. A mixture of tall centerpieces, short centerpieces and banquet tables were placed throughout the room paired with layers of romantic candlelight.
All of the beautiful details were coordinated flawlessly by the oh-so-talented Victoria Schroeder of Victoria Weddings (formerly Coronado Weddings) and captured on camera by the amazing Paul Barnett of Paul Barnett Photography!

We are so excited to share ALL the juicy details of this sophisticated soiree! We had an all-star vendor list lineup of Paul Barnett (Barnett Photography), Victoria Schroeder (Coronado Weddings) and Wayne Foster Entertainment. N & D’s day was truly the perfect blend of rustic sophistication and delicate glamour, having paired custom birch wrapped stands and organic moss with glittering crystals and soft white orchids! We normally like to start with personal flowers and ceremony details but we’re feeling a bit backwards today so we’re mixing it up!
The all white centerpieces romantically sprayed outward, creating a unique firework effect and pairing perfectly with the glowing candlelight placed at various heights below the gorgeous floral.
The romantic ceremony was set outdoors at the Torrey Pines Hilton in La Jolla and it couldn’t have been a more fitting backdrop for the stunning chuppah (a traditional Jewish wedding canopy)!
