A Heavenly Ceremony

A couple going for a ‘top-of-the-world’ feeling got hitched at a Tuscan estate atop a knoll of rolling vineyards in the Santa Monica mountains. They  tied the knot 2,000 feet above sea level on a stone helipad overlooking the surrounding mountain peaks and park lands. Rows of crisp white chiavari chairs wrapped the contour of the circular stone platform, all facing the decorated wedding arch. The reception was held on the home’s hilltop patio which was draped with white sheer  accented by our 2 tier crystal chandeliers. Beautiful plumes of ivory hydrangeas towered above the banquet tables.

Pine Wood Wedding

Shabby Chic’s still a hit this year! A local couple went all out with loads of burlap, fresh pine accents, tons of rustic furniture and accent décor. The idea was to create a truly theatric and engaging, old timey, pine forest ceremony and reception. Adding even more to the event design was the venue; the remnants of a 1900′s turn-of the century ranch. The compound contains original barns, garages, farm equipment,  machinery, and buildings housing artifacts depicting the life and times  from the era.

The ceremony was held outside in a courtyard between the old wooden garage and antique tack room. Mahogany chiavari chairs were arranged in front of the garage. Country throw rugs created the aisle runner accompanied by pine creek style row accents. The alter area was backdropped by the large, weathered barn doors and a furniture grouping of a vintage dresser, wall mirrors and two petite pine trees in burlap wrapped pots.

The cocktail area utilized more vintage furniture. Wood tables with themed tablescapes atop more throw rugs were set up for cocktail hour.

The reception was help inside the venues banquet hall.  Equally accented as the ceremony and cocktail areas, the round and rectangle tables were all tablescaped with the same decorative elements as the rest of the event; centerpieces were built of woodcraft items, pine cones, white candles, antique books, and more burlap. Round silver chargers and gunmetal grey napkins with flatware and accompanied by a burlap and pine name tag made up each table setting.   The grandiose head table had the most elaborate of the décor and set directly behind it was rustic furniture grouping that looked like a scene from a warm, cozy forest cabin.

Royal Red Wedding



Entering into a lifetime commitment with that special someone you have decided to spend the rest of your life with calls for an unforgettable celebration which called for a custom installation.

Building a wedding reception from the ground up creates a truly custom and unique event design. This grandiose reception was held atop a grassy knoll overlooking the city below. Out front of the 100′x 80′ pole tent, guests enjoyed cocktail hour amongst a garden themed reception area with picket fencing, shrubberies, crisp white floral arrangements and lounge groupings.

Upon entering the tent guests were met with theatric sight of the tent’s captivating white satin ceiling liner; which was pleated and emblazoned with wedding swirl patterns blasted by red Leko lights. Wall to wall flooring covered the entire tent floor and white satin drapery ran the perimeter of the sidewalls; creating a beautiful backdrop from floor to ceiling.

The head table sat atop a 2-foot skirted and draped stage adorned with white floral arrangements and a white rosette table linen.

Guests sat at square, round, and banquet tables tablescaped with an ornately dressed Manzanita trees,  atop maroon rosette table linens with Belmont chargers and Kent silverware.

Trussing encompassing the white dance floor came alive with intelligent lighting blasting colorful led shapes and patterns all around the room.

A Royal Purple Engagement Party

After 12 years of dating, 2012 was the year this party’s happy couple made it OFFICIAL! To celebrate the match made in heaven, the bride-to-be’s family hosted an intimate and fancy engagement reception at her parents beautiful hillside home.

Black and white decor with vibrant royal purple lighting set the color scheme. The family room provided  a dining area and a live harpist performance.  On the back patio, two canopies with sidewall enclosed the main dining and buffet area. Both inside and outside dining areas consisted of round garden tables, topped with the black and white swirl linens, black napkins and fresh rose arrangements. The custom tiered cake was adorned with intricate black, Victorian swirl piping and topped with sparkling monograms.

Clear sidewall at the rear of the tent provided insulation from the chilly evening while granting a view of the nice, neatly landscaped and up lit pool and lawn area.

The crowning jewel at the event was a giant 3-tiered, 21-light, 5′ chandelier hand-built from over 200 pieces. The behemoth lighting fixture hung in the peak of the tent and was complimented with purple up lighting.  

The events head table donned silver solid table drapes with a swirl runner down  its length and was surrounded by silver chiavari chairs with black cushions and topped with a floral centerpiece.

This photo-centric couple had some inspiring decor and engaging ideas. First, they had printed and mounted photos of favorite memories together all around the tent for guests to enjoy. Second, the tech savvy couple added some social media fun to the dinner with Instagram! Each table had a place card encouraging the guests to snap photos of the event with their smart phones and label them to a specific #hashtag.
