Whatever your budget, whatever your wedding style, I think that we can all agree that this wedding is (word of the day) GORGEOUS. With Aaron Delesie’s beyond beautiful images, Carolyn Chen’s super chic, super elegant design and Mille Fiore’s ridiculous flowers and decor…it’s kind of like a little slice of wedding heaven. Totally outside of many budgets but a complete eye candy indulgence nonetheless. Which you just know I can’t resist.
As the sun set, guests were invited into the Catalina Room for the reception. The room is very neutral by design with cream walls, mirrors, glass sconces, and beige colored carpeting – and again, a very relaxed Mediterranean inspired setting. So with lots of candles, amber uplighting & pinspotting, mirrored credenzas of floating candles that reflected light off each other – the room was very romantic which was very important to Ana. 3 styles of centerpieces were used, and a mixture of rectangle & round tables. Long tablescapes of cream, champagne, and blush florals were used on the rectangle tables, with tall & low centerpieces. Mille Fiori even added a modern touch to the design with angled gold boxes of perfectly aligned roses & orchids. The linens were textured light turquoise caps over a cream table underlay and lavender napkins for the color accent.
To Ana & Eddie’s delight, their friend Roy (who was also the friend whose wedding they attended that I had planned mentioned at the beginning) in secret collaboration me, arranged for a surprise performance. Ana & Eddie while seated at their head table were in absolute amazement that a very popular Korean B-boy group were performing at their wedding. The guests were thoroughly entertained, whether older or younger with the cultural & contemporary performances that they all appreciated, and felt pride for.
Ana & Eddie were such an amazing couple to work with, and we even share better news that they will be expecting their first child in early summer.
