We are so excited to see our work, this week, on the film, ‘The Wedding Ringer’.
It stars Kevin Hart, People Magazine’s Comedy Star of The Year Award winner, with Josh Gad and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting.
Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is a loveable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy.
After viewing the trailer, we tried to match up some of the scenes to our photos. We can’t wait to see how our flowers support the funny story.
When you make a film, you might not shoot it in chronological order. Sometimes they film reception scenes before ceremony scenes depending on the shooting schedule
This is the start of a scene with Kevin Hart and Josh Gad seated in front of our flowers.
We used Vendela and Cherry Brandy roses, and golden James Story orchids.
This is a typical 7 am call setting up this scene. On the stage large bandstand florals act as a backdrop for this following dance segment.
This scene was filmed in the Marina Vista Ballroom at the Ritz Carlton, in Marina del Rey.
The rehearsal dinner was filmed in the Bernardo Room at The Millennium Biltmore Hotel, downtown Los Angeles.
This wedding was filmed on top of the Hollywood Athletic Club. Providing a city view of downtown L.A.
While waiting for a scene to take a break, we can’t help looking over the rows of director’s chairs to view the monitors.
The ballroom wedding reception scene was filmed in the beautiful Crystal Ballroom at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel. Some of the florals were both fresh and silk flowers as it was being filmed for a series of days.
Here is a shot of Kevin Hart in front of our blooming planter boxes and large spray florals.
The wedding ceremony scene was filmed in the beautiful Hollywood United Methodist Church.
Here is a funny scene, outside the church with grandmother, Cloris Leachman.
I want to thank everyone working on this job. It was a pleasure.
