A Rooftop Kiss | InterContinental Hotel, Los Angeles

By, October 04, 2013

Being in love is sometimes described as feeling “on top of the world.” So why not let your surroundings reflect your emotions?

Our Photo of the Week features Danielle and Josh’s first look before their Los Angeles wedding. To ensure a quiet, private moment, they went all the way to the top of the InterContinental Hotel! We love the idea of stealing a few minutes in a secluded location like this. The view alone will jolt you with adrenaline, and mixed with a kiss from your love, you’ll be ready to conquer anything together!

A Soft, Vintage Inspired Wedding with Blush Botanicals

By, October 01, 2012

It brings us so much joy to create exceptional weddings from week to week. Every wedding is unique, and has its own look and feel. Our favorite aspect of working in the wedding industry is the complete creative freedom to design inspired works of art.

For example, we were very involved in Pranee and Mo’s creative design process from beginning to end. Although they started with ideas about the overall design and details, they wanted help executing the vision and bringing everything together. This is where we came in!

One of the ideas brainstormed was to use a soft color scheme of peach, coral, blush, ivory and sea foam. As well, it was decided to incorporate a lot of fun and unusual textures into the design. In the images below, you can see the vintage twist added to these initial concepts, including distressed wood, mason jars and textured burlap.

It was a beautiful day for this stunning ceremony, which took place by the golf course at the La Costa Resort and Spa. Pranee and Mo were on board with all of our creative ideas, including the asymmetrical canopy that began simply as a drawing.

Our gorgeous deep-stained wood canopy was draped in a sheer ivory silk, and soft peach and blush blooms studded the sides and top. The florals included fragrant garden roses, large cafe au lait dahlias, fluffy stock, spray roses, standard roses and dusty miller accents.

Fun sea-foam-tinted mason jars were tied to ivory satin wrapped shepherds’ hooks, and filled with peach and blush blooms.

The blushing bride carried a bouquet of fragrant garden roses, soft stock spray roses, standard roses, scabiosa pods and silvery dusty miller leaves. The bouquet was held together by a layered burlap ribbon.

A whimsical, textured, and pastel theme carried throughout the entire fabulous fête. Placed throughout the venue were soft blush and peach blooms, which were studded with organic succulents and scabiosa pods.

Ambiance for the candle-accented, romantic reception was created through two types of centerpieces. The featured centerpiece sat atop a sea-foam green platform, which was wrapped in a textured burlap ribbon. The secondary centerpiece incorporated a distressed wood platform, and held small mason jars containing assorted rosebuds and candles.
