Crissy & Mike’s Magical Bel Air Wedding

For us, this was a dream wedding. A bride with an interesting vision, an amazing family, and a great team to pull it all off.

Two years ago we created a beautiful wedding for Crissy’s sister Nicole at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.  Naturally, Crissy didn’t want to do the same wedding again.  We were delighted with her completely different design aesthetic. Crissy had adjectives I had never heard used when describing the vibe of the decor. She used the words, whimsical elegant swamp plantation. This was really exciting for us.

Crissy really stressed that interesting texture was more important to her, rather than a classic rose bouquet. We created a bouquet using Green Eye roses, Blushing Bride protea, balloon-like  Asclepias physocarpa, silver Leucadendron, Japanese Pteris, Millet, Dianthus green ball, Green hydrangea, Ornithogalum, Japanese lily grass and Maranta foliage.

untitled-24

Crissy isn’t the only bride with history attached to her family’s home. On April 29th, 1930, Irene Mayer, daughter of Hollywood legend Louis B. Mayer, married her fiancé David Selznick, and in true Hollywood fashion Mr. Mayer gave Irene her choice of any house as a wedding gift. Soon after Irene chose the same Wallace Neff  Normandy estate now owned by Crissy’s family.

Guests were greeted by a floating Champagne tower inviting guests to a magical evening.

untitled-16

The beautiful lanterns were festooned with garlands of antique hydrangea, magnolia, huckleberry, lemon leaf , hanging Amaranthus and fresh Spanish moss.

The escort cards were laid out on a bed of  fresh Oregon forest mosses accented with mushroom covered bark and Spanish Moss.

 

untitled-43

To accommodate the cocktail hour in the rolling front yard, over 10,000 square feet of custom wood decking was built just for the day.

 

After the cocktail hour, guests were led through the house past a stunning staircase swagged with  magnolia and rose garlands to a wooden plank path underneath a giant Coral Flame tree.

The swimming pool area had been transformed into the ceremony area with hundreds of teardrop hanging votives suspended from the trees.

crissy chuppah

The wedding canopy was created by four sculptural sandblasted Mansanita trees. The trees formed a base for thousands of handmade Sola wood flowers carved into the shape of wisteria, one of Crissy’s favorite flowers. Months before, we commissioned a artisan factory in India to create these floral shapes not available in Los Angeles. These flowers were packed in a container and shipped to Los Angeles arriving just in time for this wedding. Thick garlands of  antique hydrangea, white roses and sola wood flowers wove their way up the base tree trunks. The riser was veneered with weathered Travertine with moss in the joints to look as if it were always there. It’s hard to believe, the week before this site was a beautiful formal swimming pool.

untitled-123

After the ceremony, guests were led down a flight of stone steps to the beautifully landscaped tennis court garden. We created an entry of living “draperies” from fresh hop vines topped with a valence of Sola wood Anemones. Many of you might know that hops are used in the making of beer. They also make  fantastic organic curtains.

untitled-132

The surrounding manicured French landscape led to the feeling of being in a secret garden. As the sun set, the almost invisible tent structure supported giant grapevine lighted spheres. Spanish moss and Sola wood chandeliers, eclectically placed Edison bulbs and Tivoli lights to create a magical glowing ceiling.

The eclectic tables were glowing in candlelight as the evening progressed. Assorted chairs and different patterns of china were randomly placed around the table. Vendela roses, gardenias, green hydrangeas, cotton bols, and reindeer moss dripped over the sandblasted grapevine trunks.

Organic Spanish moss and Sola wood chandeliers framed the black and white checked dance floor with a view of the sweetheart table and the cake table.

The opulent sweetheart table was draped with a thick garland of antique hydrangeas, clusters of cotton bols,Vendela roses, gardenias and hanging amaranths draping down to the floor.

 

untitled-117

We created this pavéd foliage and flower table cloth for the fabulous nude cake, baked by Fantasy Frostings. They are the same baker that made celebrity, Hilary Duff’s cake at her wedding. This is a difficult style to do well as the baker can not cover any mistakes with frosting. We used Variegated Hosta leaves, Galax leaves, Maranta leaves, reindeer moss and white ranunculus.

It was truly a magical evening. In photographer Docuvitae’s blog on our wedding they stated so beautifully, “The guests were transported into a perfectly imperfect wonderland of light, texture and beauty.”

Wedding for Taryn & Matt at Geoffrey’s in Malibu

We recently created florals for this beautiful intimate wedding at Geoffrey’s in Malibu.

7-untitled-29

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.

1-untitled-3

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.

3-untitled-9

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.

4-untitled-20

Each dining table table had a different variation of the centerpiece.

2-untitled-009

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.

6-untitled-27

The place card was tied with twine to a sprig of rosemary and a single Plumeria, or also known as  Frangapani.

3-untitled-16

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.

Lindsay and Oren at Hotel Bel Air

This couple was a complete delight. The perfect weather for this outdoor ceremony allowed them to enjoy every second of their special day

A piece of antique lace from the mother of the bride’s wedding dress was fashioned into a collar around the  pale pink peony and cream spray rose nosegay

The bridesmaids bouquets were composed of semi-double peonies, white sage, white cyclamen flowers and foliage, Vendela roses and Dusty Miller.


Rose filled pendant vases were suspended from jasmine covered iron shepherd’s hooks

 

The gazebo was fashioned from California Pepper branches and White Dendrobium orchids for a natural blooming wisteria effect.

 

In Honor of Cinco de Mayo, the day of the wedding and a major holiday in Los Angeles, the cocktail hour started out with an all female Mariachi Band moving into lounge music later.

 

 

The centerpieces were a loose and casual collection of Hydrangeas, Viburnum, sweet peas, Ranunculus, Creme de la Creme and Vendela roses and blush and white peonies.

 

Each centerpiece was a different combination of these flowers.

A collar of gardenias adorned the Porto’s Wedding cake.

A warm romantic glow was created by the chocolate gels on the pinspots

Nicole and Scott at the Montage Hotel Beverly Hills

We are so happy to share this beautiful wedding with you.

0039-001

What do you do when you are using the same florist at the same hotel and same room and have some common friends  as your good friend’s wedding eight weeks earlier?  The answer, is make sure that both weddings have a completely different feeling. We love working at the Montage Hotel and this was a fun challenge for us.

The bride carried blush peonies, pale peach colored St. John’s Wort, antique butterscotch garden roses with silver Dusty Miller collar

The bridal party gathered for group photos in the garden.

The bridesmaids carried nosegay bouquets of Vendela, Free Spirit and Majolica spray roses with peach St. John’s Wort berries,

The inspiration for this wedding was Olde World European using a very sophisticated de-saturated color pallet.

Zinc architectural finials, urns, and obelisks were festooned with floral and fruit garlands leading the bride and groom down a lantern filled garden path to the wedding canopy.

The birch framed Chuppah supported thick Magnolia and Eucalyptus garlands laden with clusters of Bosc and Forelle Pears, pomegranates, persimmons on the branch, golden raisin grape clusters, antique Hydrangea and Vendela roses.

 

Entering the ballroom, the guests were treated to a European rooftop garden complete with 14′ tall Magnolia trees and antique hydrangea filled pewter planter boxes framing the bandstand. Table centerpieces had an assortment of floral and fruit garland wrapped finials.

Antique rose trellises were finished in pewter grey and silver adding to the variations of the centerpieces.

A collection of Mercury glass votives with a garland of fruit and flowers circled around the sweetheart table. The embroidered overlay was mimicked by light projections on the glossy white dance floor.

The dance floor was elegantly monogrammed in gold for Nicole and Scott.

 

As always, it was a pleasure working with Samantha Scott and her team.

Samantha and Ian Greystone Mansion Wedding

Last October, Samantha and Ian had a beautiful wedding at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. Samantha, is an event coordinator herself but wisely chose to use Angel to coordinate the day so she could be in the moment.  It was my first experience working with wedding coordinator, Angel Swanson, and wedding photographers extraordinaire , Cat and Adi, of Next Exit Photography. What a great team!

One of Samantha’s special requests for the day, was to include a family heirloom brooch to her bouquet. Fulfilling this request was so meaningful to me knowing what the brooch meant to Samantha.The courtyard reception was decked out in dark wood tables with linen runners.We filled silver Julep cups and chalices with creamy Vendela roses, green hydrangea, white lisyanthus, and sprigs of lavender and rosemary. This simple and gorgeous Estate-picked garden look was perfect for the setting.
