This Garden Shower Could Pass as a Wedding… It’s that Pretty

At first glance, this garden party is gorgeous enough to pass for a wedding. Like the most gorgeous wedding on the planet. Fashioned after a favorite childhood classic, the Petit Prince, Bob Gail Special Events dreamed up an all white bebe extravaganza. This included greenery and garden roses galore crafted by The Velvet Garden, a line-up of delicious cakes and sweets by Vanilla Bake Shop and of course the most stunning of imagery by Elizabeth Messina. Click here for so much more!

To shower this beautiful mama and baby boy-to-be, we created an environment inspired by her favorite children’s story, The Petit-Prince. Via a custom embossed and letterpressed miniature book featuring Petit Prince-inspired illustrations crafted by Lehr and Black, guests were invited to gather at the iconic Swan Lake at Hotel Bel Air for an al fresco luncheon. G

Guests entered the party between to greenery-covered chandeliers and an archway, with the foliage spelling out the word “Bebe,” and were greeted with signature cocktails, and carefully curated tray-passed hors d’oeuvres as a French-inspired Jazz trio played background music. The escort card display featured a custom boxwood and flower wall with a lattice pattern of roses, and individual frames with each guests table assignment.

Guests were seated at long king’s tables dressed with embroidered white linen, and topped with lush greenery and cream flowers and vintage gold candelabras. Each place setting featured layers of patterned china, pewter flatware and Czech crystal glassware, hemstitched napkins and a small tied bouquet of lavender with each guest’s name hand-calligraphed to indicate their place setting.

A “library” set up with a vintage desk and lace umbrella adorned with hanging symbols from the famed Petit Prince offered guests an opportunity to leave notes of love and advice for the mama and baby-to-be and a custom lace canopy topped with umbrellas—a subtle nod to the “baby shower” with velvet furniture provided the perfect place for the guest of honor to open gifts.

Lunch featured fresh, seasonal fare while dessert was offered at a “Patisserie,” crafted from the existing gazebo, which was embellished with custom lace fabric tie-backs, flowing floral ties, and a vintage bar with the menu of the sweet treats hand calligraphed on its front. Desserts of Parisian macaron towers, and baby-themed cookies and treats alongside a handmade cake topped with a baby carriage finished off the look.

Modern Pink & Navy LA Rooftop Wedding

Any couple who designs a “Drop It Like It’s Hot” display at their wedding is a couple I want to be friends with. “We wanted to incorporate Jason’s family business, Sincere Orient, who manufactured pho noodles, and what better way to do so by making our escort card as Sriracha Hot Sauce that pairs with pho?” said the bride. But that’s only the tip of the iceberg in this cultural, modern lovefest and The Great Romance Photo captured the fun from beginning to end.


From the bride… Jason and I have always been in love in visiting new cities and places that have been in our bucket list. As we conducted our own research on different venues to hold our wedding, the USC Building was the first and last venue we visited, and it only took a moment for us to decide that this was “it.” This was my dream wedding that incorporated the dreamy fairytale, traditional aspect with a modern twist.

I have always had an idea of what I wanted in our wedding. I knew the flowers, the kind of dress I wanted, the colors, and even the desert, but we were kind of stuck on the escort card and gift. We wanted to incorporate Jason’s family business, Sincere Orient, who manufactured pho noodles, and what better way to do so by making our escort card as Sriracha Hot Sauce that pairs with pho. It also helps that Jason LOVES hot sauce, and he puts it on everything! After, everything came together, and we were able to come up with a theme “Drop it Like It’s Hot.”

One of the things Jason and I wanted to include is the blending of our traditions. Family and our cultural traditions played an important part in raising us to who we are today, and we wanted our wedding to reflect that. I wanted to include the Catholic traditions of the veil and cord, while Jason included his tea ceremony. These traditions are a way to pay respect to our family, and including both displayed a blending of two cultures.

One memorable surprise was the lion dancers. There were many moments that made our day so special. Jason’s overflowing happiness can definitely be remembered as he cried happy tears so throughout the night. Even though it’s typical for the bride to cry during the wedding, it means so much more when the groom expresses his happiness. The support and love from all our close family and friends were felt throughout the night, as we literally danced the night away.

Our wedding reflected who we are in every little bit of detail, to the desert, songs, and atmosphere as everyone celebrated until the end. One thing that was very memorable was passing bowls of pho toward the end. This unexpected surprise not only gave a lot of energy but also helped tie everything together to end the perfect night with the help of CCL Weddings.
