Cynthia and Sherwin’s Tropical Themed Wedding

We loved working with Cynthia and Sherwin on their Tropical themed wedding.  Their wedding took place at Quiet Cannon in Montebello.  Our cute couple did their first look at Hilton Hotel right next to the venue which had a outdoor space which was perfect for their Tropical theme.

The arch and draping was provided by Dreams American Linen Rentals  with florals by our team.

Cynthia was one very talented bride who does calligraphy and signage.  All of the large and small wood signs, place cards and table numbers were all designed by Cynthia herself.

For those interested in checking out her shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/toliveandwriteinla and her Instagram is @toliveandwriteinla.

Cynthia wanted lots of greenery for her centerpieces to give the guests the tropical feel.  She had 60 tables so we did a mix of high and low centerpieces. Every place setting had a monstera leaf and a ferrero rocher made into a pineapple.  We loved all the personal touches that Cynthia and Sherwin put into their wedding to make the wedding truly unique.

Congratulations you guys!  Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!

Kim and Vincent’s Palm Springs Wedding

Posted In floral/ Notes » 0

We had the honor to work with a super sweet and caring couple on their Palm Springs wedding.  Kim and Vincent chose the legendary La Quinta Resort as their wedding venue.  Their wedding colors were coral and gold.  The floral designer filled the reception tables with arrangements composing of coral tea roses, coral peony, coral gerber daisies, and coral ranunculus.  These beautiful floral selections were surrounded by pillar candles.  They chose Greta Garbo’s historic home La Casa as their ceremony and reception space.  Beautiful La Casa truly sets the stage stunningly for Kim and Vincent’s picture perfect wedding.

Bat Mitzvah at Casa Del Mar

We had the privilege of coordinating a NYC themed Bat Mitzvah for Lindsey at Casa Del Mar in Santa Monica.  We were lucky to work closely with Lindsey’s mom who was extremely creative and organized which made our job really easy.  The big day started at the Wilshire Blvd. temple and all the guests were greeted by Lindsey’s New York Bagel Bar after the service ended.

Michele wanted to transform the Casa Del Mar ballroom into a  big NYC themed party.  As guests entered the ballroom, they were greeted by a large I LOVE NY floral arrangement with escort cards on yellow taxi cabs.

Each table was decorated with a specific theme related to New York such as Broadway, Times Square, Statue of Liberty, TV show ‘Friends’, Little Italy and Chinatown.  The backdrop was an image of the New York City skyline.

Another main theme was Lindsey’s Candy Bar.  The Cocktail Reception area was decorated with candy everywhere and the kids’ area was transformed to a candy paradise with lollipops hanging from the ceiling and all sorts of candy scattered on the tables.  Drinks from the bar were also decorated with candy.

Wedding Co. Market 2015

Posted In floral/ Notes » 0

We attended the Wedding Co. Market 2015 on Sunday at the Artscape Wychwood Barns.  This venue is gorgeous in the summer time and it is still equally beautiful in the winter covered in snow.  The Wedding Co.  Market took place inside the Covered Street Barn which contains full length skylight and glass garage style doors on each side of the room.  This is such a unique space and I fall in love with it every time I walk in.

We met a lot of amazing vendors who showcased their business at the show.   Below you will some of our favourites.  The Wedding Co. Market takes place annually and it’s a great way for brides and grooms to get to know some local vendors and to get some inspiration for wedding planning.

Joining of two cultures in Marriage

Posted In floral venue Wedding/ Notes » 0

Hazel and Evan lived in Vancouver and chose Palm Desert, California as their destination wedding location. Most of the planning was done virtually due to the distance. We were excited to hear about the plans for Hazel and Evan’s wedding day. The bride, Hazel was from China and we were happy to help her plan this joining of two cultures in marriage. The big day included a traditional Chinese ceremony in the morning, a brunch buffet, a Western ceremony in the afternoon and a dinner reception. All the wedding events took place at Palm Valley Country Club where Hazel and Evan owned vacation homes.

After months of planning, the big has arrived. The day began with a 10:00am traditional Chinese ceremony. The first part of the ceremony was for the groom to pick up the bride and bring her back to his home. In order to do this, he must pass a few obstacles as set out by Hazel’s family. Evan passed the tests successfully which was then followed by a tea ceremony with Hazel’s mom and brother. The ceremony was filled with emotions and lots of happy tears.

After the ceremony, Evan placed a red cloth to cover Hazel’s face and led her by her hand back to his house.

After Hazel and Evan arrived back at Evan’s house, a tea ceremony was also performed with Evan’s parents. It is after all these traditions that Hazel becomes officially part of Evan’s family.

After the Chinese ceremony, guests were invited to the Valley Room at Palm Valley Country Club for the brunch buffet. We decorated the room with gold and red elements to match the Chinese theme. All the rental pieces and flowers were prepared by My Little Flower Shop.

At 3:00pm, Hazel and Evan had their Western Ceremony. The ceremony site was decorated with purple and pink flowers and set in front of the natural backdrop from the Palm Trees on the golf course.

One of our favorite moments that evening was the first dance by Evan and Hazel as all eyes were on them to witness this sweet moment.
