Every time we see this photo of Courtney’s happy face the morning of her Terranea Resort celebration it reminds us of why all the work is worth it.  Being a part of one of the happiest times in a couple’s journey is such an honor; it’s thrilling and rewarding and satisfies the sucker-for-love that exists in most of us wedding professionals.  We hope you like this little flashback to Courtney and Pascal’s sparkly summer seaside wedding as much as we enjoyed helping put it together!

The Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills oozes classic glamour and today we are feeling it as we look back at Alice and Robin’s photos from their 2011 wedding.  Here’s a quick peek at some of the highlights and sweet moments from the day’s festivities.

A shared background in theater (as well as our bride’s love for her time spent teaching elementary school) guided the theme for Andrea and Phinny’s sunny Malibu wedding. Chalkboards, school craft paper, and impromptu tambourine and kazoo serenades infused the occasion with nostalgic whimsy, while a floral medley of ranunculus, garden roses, tulips, and white peonies (and an orchid-topped cake!) added a touch of romance.

Lately we’ve noticed a proliferation of soft, rustic, moody, romantic images online.  Plenty of blush, periwinkle, bursting naturalistic bouquets, and gauzy lighting.  While we are definitely on board with all of these trends (they’re gorgeous!) we sometimes want to spice up our visual diet!  So today we thought we’d share a few highlights from Andrea and Brett’s Beverly Hills wedding.  The event was filled with glowy, twinkling, dramatic lighting, towering lush roses, and plenty of sparkle!  We hope you enjoy this little blast from the past as much as we enjoyed digging it up!  What are some of your favorite dramatic or striking design elements?

Ashley was the third of her parents’ three daughters to be married within an eighteen-month time span and the entire family couldn’t have been lovelier.  Our bride opted for minimal florals and design, allowing the stunning Pelican Hill location to take center stage, so we turned our design attention to incorporating Italian-inspired details throughout the venue, using branchy table arrangements and soft spot pin lighting.  The bride was pro-dance party from day one and, after a reception featuring one of the most memorable father-of-the-bride speeches I have ever heard, we made it happen!  Ashley and her groom had such a ball that she eventually cut off some of her wedding gown to be more unencumbered on the dance floor – what a moment!

Today we’re excited to share a quick peek of details from a lovely Saddlerock Ranch wedding we helped coordinate a few years ago.  The ceremony took place at Chateau Le Dome, a stunning overlook, and was followed by a vineyard reception featuring french catering and rustic decor.  The rustic vineyard theme was balanced by blush details and soft feminine florals woven throughout.  We had a blast helping on this one and hope you enjoy the quick trip down memory lane!

What a treat it was to help throw an intimate Malibu home wedding for Sunghee & Mike!  Stunning views, piano and strings played by a talented trio, and soft candlelight brought romance and warmth to the joyful atmosphere.  After a beautiful sunset cocktail reception, the couple revealed a special surprise for their guests, donning traditional Korean attire to present a personalized version of a ring ceremony.  The delighted guests were then treated to cake and coffee and enjoyed the Malibu coastline well into the night.

When we found out that Cassandra’s hometown friends Jenn and Brian decided to have their wedding in Santa Monica, we were jumping with excitement!  Jenn and Brian bring love and laughter everywhere they go, and we knew their wedding would be no exception.  Held under the shade of the coral tree at The Fairmont Miramar, the ceremony drew many to tears – our favorite moment was watching the couple’s two toddlers make their own way down the aisle!  Following an outdoor reception, the party went well into the night at The Fairmont, guests enjoying a breakdancing performance, a silhouette artist, toasts, and an impressive first dance from the bride and groom!  We laughed, we cried, it was all we expected and more.

The style was relaxed and fun with a touch of whimsy at this Malibu backyard morning wedding. The couple opted against formality and instead created a cozy day for their friends and loved ones, inviting their closest guys and gals to wear lovely green dresses and grey suits in lieu of establishing a formal bridal party. Some of the sweetest moments we remember were the guests’ surprised reactions to the “mock Polaroids” created from old photographs the couple had on hand.  We are so happy to have been a part of creating Mia and Damon’s unique celebration!

Kristen and Riley had just moved to the Caribbean from NYC when they decided to have a Southern California wedding, and we were so happy to be a part of their destination event!  The bride was an absolute sweetheart and the connection between her and her groom touched our hearts.  Travel was the overarching theme of the wedding and deep fuchsia and navy were woven into the design and venue.  We absolutely loved the map-themed details created by Figmint Design and will always remember the beautifully-tied ribbon on Kristen’s bouquet – a perfectly elegant touch.
