Stacey and Ricky at the Montage Hotel, Beverly Hills
I was so excited to share this wonderful couples wedding.
When they shared with me the story of their engagement, I was just blown away.
The groom prepared a surprise proposal engagement party at an art gallery. He had photo highlights of their relationship, enlarged, mounted and hung in the gallery with beautiful heartfelt captions.
What a surprise for the bride to see that the show was the photo depiction of their romance and then the proposal. So romantic and thoughtful.
For the wedding, we recreated the art gallery on the perimeter hedge walls of the ceremony area, so guests could enjoy the installation during cocktails after the ceremony.
The bride carried a Biedermeyer bouquet, a style that features flowers arranges in concentric circles, consisting of Crystal Blush Calla Lilies, Stephanotis, and white peonies.
The bridesmaids, in a flattering variety of black dresses contrasted with their jewel-toned bouquets.
The bridesmaids carried callas and hydrangea in shades of purples with Fatsia foliage.
Being October, guests were offered pashminas for the outdoor terrace ceremony inscribed with the clever saying,
“To have and to hold , in case you get cold”.
Thousands of purple Dendrobium orchids created this modern floral canopy.
The orchids were hand-tied.on site, to create this one-of-a-kind disk-shaped chuppah.
A garland of purple Mokkara orchids was placed on this ceremonial table.
One of the most spectacular views, was from the pool terrace, where hotel guests watched from above.
The floating escort card table supported a collection of vases filled with bouquets of Burgundy Cymbidium, purple Rothschild Vanda Orchids and hot pink Calypso Mokkara Orchids.
the long tables were filled with tall purple Dendrobium Orchid floral clouds.
At the table level, groupings of geometric mirror finish cubes, laid out in a pattern, were filled with hot pink peonies, Rothschild Vanda Orchids, and Mokkara Orchids.
As the evening progressed, the lighting enhanced the dramatic decor.
burgundy succulents were places on the menu filled napkins.
The multi-tierd stacked wedding cake was circled in Rothschild Vanda purple orchid.
Beverly Hills Trolley, provided the perfect stetting for their bridal party photo.
We are so happy for this wonderful family and great couple.
