We recently created florals for this beautiful intimate wedding at Geoffrey’s in Malibu.
It’s not often a restaurant like Geoffrey’s allows a buyout for a special event.
While we were setting up the flowers, we overheard the hostess informing a number of “A-listers” that they were closed for the evening.
The light and breezy canopy overlooked the ocean creating a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony. We designed a brown bamboo structure draped in natural gauzy fabric. Plumeria flown in from Hawaii, orchids and smilax were loosely draped over the frame.
After the ceremony, guests moved to the veranda for cocktails. Geoffrey’s cocktail tables are all designed to look like custom surfboards.
In heavy glass sham vases we arranged ranunculus, scented geraniums, Iceburg roses and herbs.
Each dining table table had a different variation of the centerpiece.
We used combinations of bleached driftwood, rustic carved wood bowls, clusters of green grapes, mercury and bubble glass votives, pearlized sea shells, open cream roses, succulents, herbs and gardenias.
The place card was tied with twine to a sprig of rosemary and a single Plumeria, or also known as Frangapani.
The table under the canopy for the ceremony became the sweetheart table.
As the sun set the restaurant became a magical glow of candlelight and music.
