Zen-Chic wedding Chelsea and Mark at Calamigos Ranch

We recently created a unique environment for a wedding at Calamigos ranch in their newly remodeled room.


The bride, a Yoga instructor, wanted a totally different vibe from her sister’s wedding at Hotel Bel Air. She wanted something organic and spiritual relating to who she is as a person. This family was totally involved in the decision and creative process.

The bride carried white peonies, lime green Cymbidium orchids, Swarovski crystal filled Stephanotis and a fresh millet spray accent.

The chuppah was draped with hundreds of Golden James Story orchids and lime green Cymbidium orchids tied to golden curly willow.  We then clustered lanterns in the structure.
The Mandala-like aisle runner was created with designs inspired by Indian bridal henna or Mehndi designs.

After cocktails, the guests entered a magical golden bamboo forest topping the tables with hanging glass teardrop votives and cascading orchid stems climbing up the Seven foot tall trellises.

If you click on the images you can see them full screen.

Surrounding the base were copper and gold mercury glass votives with Café au Lait Dinner Plate Dahlias and open Juliet Garden roses.

Each napkin was tied with gold silk cording and a cymbidium orchid with bamboo accent.


The custom designed bamboo and orchid trimmed cake was featured next to the metallic copper dance floor,

Kimery Sherwood of Kimery Events worked unceasingly to ensure that our client received a beautiful and unique wedding full of personality.

There were so many beautiful details. Congratulations and best wishes.

Tea and Flower Arranging Party

Last week we had a wonderful time organizing a flower arranging party for one of our clients.

Melissa, a bride whose upcoming September wedding at the Montage Hotel Beverly Hills , called me about a special gift for her mother.

She wanted to invite her mothers friends to a tea and flower arranging party. What a thoughtful gift.

We brought in masses of roses, lilies, sweet peas, dinner plate dahlias and many other varieties of flowers with a huge selection of containers.


This was a very talented group of ladies.


There was very little hesitation selecting flowers for their creations.


It was so interesting to see their personalities come out in their designs.

We can’t wait to see everyone again at the wedding.

Annie and Erik at Saddlerock

Annie and Erik were married in the new Oak Grove location at Saddlerock.

They wanted something simple for the ceremony area. We created an ombré effect with a bed of re-flexed open roses.

The flower girls were really cute, and totally focused on their videos.

Finally, the floral halos were secured to the top of their heads.

The bride carried Vendela and Ana roses with ivory and peach spray roses.

The maid of honor carried hot pink sweet peas together with soft pink and hot pink roses.

Collections of clear glass bowls filled with Hydrangea, Viburnum, China Mums, Ana Roses and Galax leaves were placed down the long wooden Amalfi tables.

The sweetheart table had a floral garland with clusters of mercury glass votives for a romantic glow.
