Shade Hotel Shoot

The Shade Hotel is such a cool and stylish luxury hotel in Manhattan Beach and it was the perfect place for this shoot. Aaron Young shot all the goodies you’re about to see and it all couldn’t have happened without the amazing Constance Curtis!

We had two floral concepts going on, and these upcoming pictures are the first concept.. A little bit of romance mixed with a lot of pretty in muted tones, all carefully designed with blush garden roses, lavender roses and ranunculus, ivory hydrangea and lisianthus, with touches of gold.

We then swapped out the arrangements with our second concept.. Something different. Still pretty, still romantic, but a lot more bold!

And now for the pretty little details… berries, gilded fruits & succulents, wax dripped candlesticks, crystal decanters, and lets not forget the gorgeous chevron table runners!

These color of these blackberries are an amazing contrast to the rest of the table.

The Look Of Love Event, Orange County

Last November, we were so excited to be a part of California Wedding Day’s The Look of Love Event at the Chuck Jones Center. We had the pleasure of working with the most amazing team headed by LVL Weddings and Events!

It was so fun to create this hanging centerpiece installation using pretty coral peonies, vibrant tulips, and roses, and filled with lush greenery; we seriously love it. Ps. Can someone please order one so we can recreate it?!

We kept the tablescape pretty simple to really make the hanging centerpiece stand out using only single peony blooms in gold bud vases with candlesticks, decanters and votives.

Blue Magpie Invitations killed it with these chalkboard-like invites, menus, and labels!

And we can’t forget about the amazing little details! Little gold bud vases, gold votives, crystal decanters, vintage books, vintage candlesticks, the GORGEOUS globe!…  TLOL-OC-87-2227699937-O TLOL-OC-74-2227697759-O TLOL-OC-55-2227694965-O TLOL-OC-50-2227694366-O TLOL-OC-35-2227692384-O TLOL-OC-86-2227699677-O TLOL-OC-89-2227700245-O TLOL-OC-05-2227687854-O TLOL-OC-66-2227697026-O
