{Katy & Matt}

We had the pleasure of designing the Big Day for an extremely nice couple, Katy and Matt,  this past weekend at The Bel Air Bay Club.  You could not have asked for more perfect weather, a more glistening ocean and a more gorgeous bride and groom!  The ceremony took place on the lawn facing the ocean.  A chiffon canopy with a heavy floral design of hydrangea and roses and a iron and crystal chandelier, flanked by two large urns of all creamy white flowers was the perfect spot to exchange vows.  The aisle was decorated with a white aisle runner heavily scattered with white rose petals and the chairs all had bouquets of hydrangea, roses and hanging green amaranthus.  The bride's entrance down the aisle was flanked by two more large arrangements.
The reception was all about candlelight and gorgeous mixed style floral designs among the long family style tables.  Some tables had long hedge style designs in mirrored boxes, while other tables held tall arrangements of hydrangea, roses, amaranthus and phalenopsis orchids. Others had combinations of low and tall. And did I mention candles?  Oh yea, there were a lot of those too!  One more special touch were heavily decorated iron chandeliers accented with 3 crystal chandeliers suspended over the dancefloor.

Thank you to Gianna Provenzano from GP Events  for bringing us your great clients!

Lovin' Pinterest!

OK...I am "slightly" obsessed with Pinterest, and it seems like I am not alone!  A couple of my past clients had asked me to take a look at their boards to see their style and/or color pallet they were going for....which was very helpful.... but then I was hooked myself!  I just read a recent LA Times article that Pinterest usage went from something like 3.5 million users in September to 27.5 million in April!  The stat that I thought had to be incorrect was that the average user spend 1.5 hours a WEEK on Pinterest.  That obviously had to be a typo considering myself and other pinners activity!  My husband became annoyed when I was on there for 2 hours straight and was ignoring him!

Anyway...I thought I would post a few of my favorite inspiration images for hanging lighting and floral decor that I found and have pinned ...AND  you could always start following us to see more! (Ixora Floral on Pinterest).  As well, I think this is a great medium for any of my clients to start their own inspiration board to share with vendors

Bridal Open House at the Beautiful Athenaeum...This Sunday!

The Athenaeum is hosting an open house to view its beautiful location on the Cal Tech campus this Sunday.  If you are looking for an absolutely gorgeous venue for your wedding (or any other party, like a Bar/Bat Mitzvah) please check out the invite for details (you will need to RSVP).  Even if you already have a location it might just be fun to check out some of the vendors- we will be there with three table top designs showcasing our work. Here are a few events that we have done in the past....

Here are a few photos of work we have done there in the of my favorite places to work (i even had my wedding on the Cal Tech campus, although not exactly at the Ath- but it is great for photos!!!)
