Enchanted Forest Fairy Tale

July 26th, 2019

We met Nadine and her mother in September of 2018 and felt an instant connection due to a few common friends. Nadine had a very clear vision about her event and wanted it to feel like a movie. She wanted the cocktail hour to reflect "Woodlands" with art installations for photo along with furniture vignettes giving organic vibes. Dinner was going to be set on the lawn and the theme was "Enchanted Forest" and the last part of the evening was planned in Mar Vista Ballroom with "Tropical Forest" vibe.

There were several walk thru’s and design meetings and after working on multiple diagrams, final version was selected. Color palette of green, cream and hints of pink were chosen and the mock up was hugely successful. Production began a full day prior to the event and the entire team worked in a cohesive manner in spite of challenges with the space. A raised aisle and circular dance floor created a dramatic effect.

Rotunda lawn looked like an enchanted forest with tons of chandeliers hanging around the perimeter and above the dance floor. A seven foot cake sat atop a riser inside the rotunda with crystal chandeliers hanging above. Couple’s stage was set in front of the rotunda with the towering cake as the backdrop.

Tons of candles and flowers created an enchanted and ethereal vibe. The icing on the cake were two LED screens projecting images of enchanted forest, butterflies, waterfalls etc and the effect was magical.

Once the guests were seated, our groom made his entrance accompanied by a saxophone player and his groomsmen. Our Bride dressed in a stunning gown and looking beyond beautiful made her entrance down the aisle on her father’s arm. She was lead by violinists and flower girls. After a lot of dancing, couple left for photos and then made Grand Entrance as a couple. Guests enjoyed cirque acts and were entertained by a soprano, singers, Arab band, piano player and a singer during a sumptuous four course dinner. Once the cake was cut, guests were escorted upstairs for the after party by Samba Dancers.

The Mar Vista Ballroom was set up with decadent and sumptuous dessert display along with Persian Tea Station. Guests danced the night away and the most successfully planned and executed wedding came to an end. We have become very fond of the entire family and there is a sense of strong bond that will always prevail.

Wishing our lovely couple life time of happiness!

Al Fresco Dinner Reception

July 12th, 2019

A few months back our very dear client approached us to plan a dinner reception in honor of her last child and his bride. That kind of trust and compliment, as gratifying as it is, also comes with a serious responsibility specially when you have build a history with that client. Having planned two of her children’s weddings and considering this was the last child, we were truly humbled and honored to be a part of this very special occasion.

This dinner reception was to take place at their estate. We immediately scheduled a design walk thru with the team. In order to accommodate her guests, we had to cover the pool which worked out beautifully as it gave an illusion of a large lawn. Couple’s and family table was set under the existing gazebo. Client expressed the desire to have something chic, elegant, lose and not stuffy. Keeping that in mind, a very pale blush linen was chosen with lose and airy flowers that blended with the surroundings and did not look over done. The effect was understated and ethereal. Guests were treated to delicious butler passed hor’s deouvres and beverages inside the house and were then escorted to the lawn for al fresco dining. Delicious dinner and interactive dessert stations added to the ambiance and with lovely jazz music, great company and interesting conversation, guests seemed to have had a fabulous time. Most of all our dear client and her family were over the moon.

We wish the couple life time of happiness and a blissful life!

Special thank you to all the partners who made it possible!
