A Red and Black Birthday

December 17th, 2012

What a fun time we had planning this birthday party for a client who we have grown to love through the years. When she came to us with the idea of surprising her boyfriend for one of his milestone birthdays, we were so excited to make her vision come to life. It was held at their residence which is surrounded by lush greenery and beautiful waterscapes so we focused our design on the outdoor areas bringing in gorgeous decor and florals that complimented the scenery. It was such a fun evening with great music, company, and delicious food from Tres LA. Most of all, the birthday boy enjoyed himself thanks to all the efforts of his girlfriend and everyone involved. Enjoy!

Winter Wonderland Inspirations

December 4th, 2012

This is my favorite time of year; not only is it happy and festive, but it's a great time for me to gather inspiration. I absolutely love all things white so this month my focus was winter wonderland. You can truly find inspiration in anything whether it's a store window, a piece of furniture, or a chandelier. These are a few things I love that we can pull elements from for the events we do.
Wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
Enjoy!

Mia and Matt, A Hindu and Jewish wedding

November 12th, 2012

Mia and Matt made such a beautiful couple. Their wedding was an awesome mix of two cultures-Indian Hindu and Jewish. The two ceremonies took place on the Pacific Promenade lawn of the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel overlooking the ocean. They could not have lucked out with a more glorious day! The Hindu ceremony was held in the afternoon with the stunning blue background of the ocean and the sun highlighting each gentle wave. The Jewish ceremony was held right before sunset and just as everyone cried "Mazaltov!" the sun began to set-glorious! Enjoy!

The Montage Beverly Hills

October 24th, 2012

montage beverly hills We love working at the Montage Beverly Hills Hotel with George Nickels and his team! The Montage is a beautiful hotel in the heart of the Golden Triangle; steps from the shopping and dining of Rodeo and Canon Drives. George and his staff at the Montage resort are highly qualified and experienced and are able to handle corporate and social affairs with grace and ease. The hotel's classic Hollywood style fused with modern luxury is a sophisticated environment for work or play. Distinctive amenities include award-winning cuisine, a 20,000-square-foot spa and an iridescent rooftop pool with panoramic views. Montage Beverly Hills is comprised of 201 guestrooms, including 55 expansive suites. Each room is equipped with thoughtful amenities, such as a gentleman's valet; plush Turkish cotton terry robes; and electronically controlled lighting, temperature and drapery systems. Panoramic views of Beverly and Canon Drives or the adjacent Beverly Canon Gardens can be enjoyed from many of the rooms' balconies. The Montage offers fresh California cuisine and a salon headed by Kim V?, Hollywood's renowned celebrity colorist. montage beverly hills montage beverly hills montage beverly hills montage beverly hills montage beverly hills montage beverly hills montage beverly hills On October 7, we held our 4th annual showcase, and this year it was at the Montage Beverly Hills Hotel. The partnership with George Nickels and Exquisite Events was flawless and after a few visits to the hotel to design the event, we decided to host it at the 9th floor Conservatory and Grill, which has some of the most sensational views in all of LA! We began the evening at the exclusive 10lb, a scotch bar that houses some of the rarest and finest scotch on display anywhere in the world. The guests were able to enjoy a delicious tasting of three types of scotch, accompanied by an acoustic guitar and violinist. Following the tasting, the hotel escorted guests to the 9th floor, where the rest of the evening ensued. Once the elevator doors opened at the 9th floor, the two spaces, the Conservatory and Grill, were completely transformed. We wanted both spaces to have a different look; so the Conservatory, which is the indoor space, was inspired by 1920s Paris with a soft color palette of blush and gold with flowers complementing those tones. The balcony of the conservatory had french bistro tables painted in rose gold along with cocktail tables and stunning old world linens in soft pink and gold damask. Guests were able to relax and enjoy the panoramic views of the LA skyline! montage beverly hills montage beverly hills montage beverly hills montage beverly hills Last Four Photos by Gavin Wade Photography Exquisite Events Montage Beverly Hills Revelry Event Designers Reflections Inc Wildflower Linens Hidden Garden Flowers Nirvana Beverly Hills Beaudry Beverly Hills Gavin Wade Photography Vidicam Catch the Moment Photobooth Essence Entertainment Makeup Therapy Tallarico Vodka Copperwillow Paper Studio

Guests were able to relax and enjoy the panoramic views of the LA skyline! Luckily, we were able to get into the room the day before to set up and do a light check. However, the Grill was another story! It is normally a restaurant everyday from 7 am-3 pm, which meant that we could not set up there until around 3:30 pm! Our party started at 6:00, which meant we had a little over two hours to get the existing hotel furniture out and move in our design elements; which included a stage for the band, lighting, furniture, tables, and more! The color palette for the grill was aqua, turquoise and silver with beautiful linens and chair covers that looked like gowns from the period. The flowers were in tangerine, green and ivory and really brought the space to life. Since the Montage wanted to showcase an Indian caterer, Deep from Nirvana, had a great selection of heavy appetizers, while Executive Chef Gabriel from the hotel did a spectacular ceviche station with a gorgeous display! There was also a liquid nitrogen dessert station with some of the yummiest cheesecake I have ever had. We will be featuring an entire blog, coming soon, on the food at FAM, so be sure to check back soon! Essence Entertainment played beautiful music and kept the guests entertained throughout the evening. The fun part of the evening for me was being able to model jewelry from the Couture Jeweler, Beaudry of Beverly Hills, who partnered with us and showcased some of the most exquisite pieces I have seen! We'll also be featuring more jewelry in another blog post coming soon. It was a very fun and elegant evening! exquisite events fam 2012 at montage beverly hills exquisite events fam 2012 at montage beverly hills exquisite events fam 2012 at montage beverly hills exquisite events fam 2012 at montage beverly hills exquisite events fam 2012 at montage beverly hills exquisite events fam 2012 at montage beverly hills exquisite events fam 2012 at montage beverly hills exquisite events fam 2012 at montage beverly hills exquisite events fam 2012 at montage beverly hills exquisite events fam 2012 at montage beverly hills exquisite events fam 2012 at montage beverly hills Exquisite Events Montage Beverly Hills Revelry Event Designers Reflections Inc Wildflower Linens Hidden Garden Flowers Nirvana Beverly Hills Beaudry Beverly Hills Gavin Wade Photography Vidicam Catch the Moment Photobooth Essence Entertainment Makeup Therapy Tallarico Vodka Copperwillow Paper Studio

Bridal Showroom at the Four Seasons Westlake Village

August 27th, 2012

four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events We were approached by the Four Seasons Westlake Village to design a room that serves as a showcase for the brides and hotel guests.  Needless to say, it was a big honor and we went straight to work.  Nikki wanted something that gave the feeling of a very high end boutique and therefore, a color palette of silver grey was chosen for its calming effect.  The room was draped in silver chiffon and taffetta and all the existing shelves were covered in silver fabric to create a warm and welcoming environment.  On the back wall, we created silver tufted panels with custom buttons and the lighting in the room illuminated in shades of very pale grey and platinum creating a very peaceful and elegant vibe. She also decided to carpet the room in silver grey.  Nikki's main emphasis was on the table top to highlight the silver pieces that are part of Exquisite Event's new line that will be launching soon.  The table was adorned with crushed silver velvet from Wildflower Linen and beautiful sleek chair caps in silver were custom made by them as well.  In order to bring drama to the room, Nikki decided to place a mirror on the table as well as hang a beautiful black chandelier from above.  The room also had a lounge area where guests could relax and enjoy the events on a plasma screen produced by Exquisite Events.  At the entrance of the room is black high gloss dance floor with Four Seasons, Reflections and Exquisite Events logos.  The bridal showroom is getting very positive feedback and people seem to love it. four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events four seasons westlake village bridal showroom with exquisite events Photos by Megan Stark Photography

A Private Engagement

August 10th, 2012

Hi! We had so much fun planning this engagement party for a family who we have done a number of events for. Set at their private residence in Los Angeles, we created 2 separate areas; cocktails were held in their front yard where the colors were tiffany blue and white. The reception was on the tennis court which was tented in a luscious gold chiffon with 5 beautiful crystal chandeliers suspended from the top. The mirrored tables were an assortment of rectangles, squares and rounds and the flowers were blushes, pinks, and creams. It was just so stunning. Looking forward to their wedding next year! XO,
