There’s no denying the fact that if you want a beyond gorgeous contemporary wedding with insane amounts of glamour and drama, the Viceroy is where you wanna be. Each and every nook and cranny is the perfect backdrop for your wedding day images and there’s no doubt that the geniuses at ARTISAN, Event • Floral • Décor, LLC had an incredible time planning and designing this pretty pink, black and white fete. Oh, and did I mention that they also did the to-die-for florals as well? Yup, these people are pure geniuses I tell ya. Mi Belle Photography snapped all the beautiful images and if you’re like me and just can’t seem to get enough of this modern love fest, join me in the gallery for even more!
From ARTISAN, Event • Floral • Décor, LLC…..Stacie and Paul happened to be in town while touring The Viceroy Palm Springs and gave me a call knowing that it was last minute to stop by. I said you get me the way I am today, we had a big laugh on that! They expressed their desire for style and creativity with colors of hot pink, black and white… and together we came up with a plan.
Scouring the fabric district of LA I came across a black and white leather fabric which was ultra-swank with super style. I showed it to Stacie and Paul and they loved it. We used this to create the framework of what would hold the design of the wedding together. I suggested they incorporate the pattern into elements of the wedding. They could use it as a border on the invitation, the border on the place card, the place card box itself (which we created and completed with a pave of pink carnations with silver picks for the place cards), the design on the cake and the actual runners on the table… super cool!
Another design element was a chandelier, which was on the invitation. We had a trio of ARTISAN white crystal chandeliers hanging over the long family tables that were covered in pink peonies, hot pink hydrangea, Esther roses and staggered candle stands with white floating candles. We used hot pink organza drapes to create a dramatic entrance to the courtyard. The Viceroy Presidio, with its lush green grass was the perfect setting to dine under the stars.
Stacie and Paul listened when I told them the first dance was truly a special moment, they learned a spectacular dance and took it a step further and entered to “Dirty Bit” Black Eyed Peas, in sunglasses, family and friends were on their feet with excitement. The evening was stylized elegance with candlelight, romance and FLOWERS AS ART!
