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!

Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa

On our recent trip to Colorado, we had the opportunity to do a site visit at Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa which is located in Tabernash, a short drive from Denver.  This venue is ideal for brides who want a destination wedding and an outdoor ranch style wedding.  You really can’t find anything like this in a big city.  The view was just stunning no matter where you look.

Axel’s Pavilion is perfect for those who want an outdoor event.  In the winter time, this actually turns into a skating rink.

The dinner featured 20 main courses starting with beef and chicken kabobs from Masrour Catering followed by sushi, Kobe beef and Santa Barbara Prawn from Q Sushi.  We also tasted amazing fried crawfish, crawfish etouffee, gumbo and crawfish Egg Rolls from World Famous Noel Abbeville Farm.  After all this, we got lamb chops, Okinawa Purple Sweet Potato and Heirloom Carrots from Command Performance Catering.  The evening ended with a fashion show, cake cutting as well as live band performances.

We certainly had a great time and we thank the owner Kieu Hoang for the generous invitation to celebrate at the beautiful Hummingbird Nest Ranch.

 

Avalon Hotel Palm Springs

We recently did a site visit to Avalon Hotel Palm Springs.  It is a very chic and boutique style venue.  If you like modern and chic then this venue is for you.  There’s a total of 67 guest rooms, some with a terrace or private patio.  There are 13 historic one and two bedroom villas with full kitchens.

There are 3 pools – 1 family pool and 2 adult only.

One of our personal favorites was the Presidio Courtyard for a wedding reception under the stars.  Since Palm Springs has a noise restraint, there’s the option of holding your after party in the Presidio Ballroom.

We loved the Avalon Hotel and we hope you will too.

 

Villa Royale Inn Palm Springs

Villa Royale Inn Palm Springs is an intimate boutique hotel with a lot of history and character.  There are several ceremony and reception options at the Villa Royale Inn.  You can choose to have your ceremony in the garden or with the mountain as the backdrop.  For the reception, guests can dine by the pool under the stars or in the charming Europa Restaurant.  This is the perfect wedding venue for those planning intimate celebrations.
