We work with some of the Event Industry’s most creative event professionals, their events are nothing short of spectacular.  On the RED blog we highlight our design work and our creative collaborations with our “Uber” talented clients.

“The creative teams of Sterling Engagements and Shawna Yamamoto Event Design took a step back in time for their “1920s Vintage Seaside Romance” styled shoot. “We wanted to design something that stands up to today’s design standards, [while embracing] the vintage elements,” they explain. The historic Bel-Air Bay Club guided the ambience of the event, which featured a classic color scheme inspired by the selected linen. 

Constructed by Alphonzo Bell from 1927 to 1928 along the shores of Pacific Palisades, the property was intended to provide a beautiful place of leisure for prominent local citizens, socialites, and Hollywood celebrities. These were the individuals for whom this event was staged. Thus, seating assignments, indicated by names written with navy ink in elegant calligraphy upon sand-toned paper seashells, placed Mr. Bell at the head of the table. The Talmadge sisters – silent film actresses – and Douglas Fairbanks were also among the shoot’s honored guests.

Windows offering views of the Pacific Ocean were dressed with breezy ivory fabric gathered by bouquets of green and white flowers. Vanilla hydrangeas were lined on the low windowsill below. To anchor the essence of romance, a sculptural swirl centerpiece composed of a variety of pearl blooms, including hydrangeas, lilacs, stephanotis, anemones, and fringed tulips, started at one end of the table – dressed with an opulent ivory, textured tablecloth with gold threads – and ended at the other. Three small teardrop-shaped, beaded glass chandeliers accented the floral piece. Soft lighting emitted from taper candles in cylindrical candleholders and votives in golden vessels.

Offset by sapphire satin napkins, place settings of elegant china with gold rims and patterns and bullion chargers were paired with gilded flatware. Double Old-Fashioned glasses with modern gilt swirls, as well as wine glasses with rosy stems and bowls, were on hand for the libations at the celebration. A couple of treats awaited attendees when they took their seats in chic Infinity chairs with polished bullion backs and ivory cushions: a cupcake in a gold foil cup topped with frosting, artistic scalloped circles, and petite sugar flowers, and a cake pop sprinkled with gilded sugar. Additional treats were displayed on an Art Deco dessert cart, including a pastel blue cake embellished with golden ropes and sugar anemones with navy centers on a crystal cake plate.

Ultimately, all the elements harmoniously created a timeless aesthetic. “Together by the sea is a beautiful place to be” was gracefully handwritten on a cut-out, which was showcased on place settings to capture the scenic location as well as the sentiment of joyful gatherings. So as you plan your big day, be aware of how your venue and details that catch your eye can inspire the look of your celebration.

We provided our Paris bench and upholstered dining chairs for this beautiful table at the Luxe Launch OC. As originally featured on Hostess with the Mostess:

We may have a case of “who wore it better” on our hands… and I’m referring to the backdrop vs. centerpieces of gorgeous flowers of course! Michelle Garibay Events teamed up with Growing Grace Floral Design for a playful “Kate Spade bride” style tablescape that works for the wedding or the bridal shower. Their Chic Parisian “Le Jardin” Inspired Tablescape is glowing… and not just from the candles! ;) From the bold black & white linen to the ultra creative (and mood setting) floral backdrop, catch all the glamorous details and a fun Q&A session with Michelle below.

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Modern black and white stripe table linen + fuschia satin napkins
– Vibrant florals studded in a fresh garden wall backdrop
– White plates, pink circular menus  + lush peony and rose floral arrangements
– Matte gold flatware, candelabras, and votive candles


Revelry Event Designers-Love Luxe Life

Not only did John & Joseph Photography provide us with beautiful photographs, but Couture Motion Pictures created this unforgettable highlight film of our couple’s wedding that we were happy to be part of.

As originally featured on Love Luxe Life:

“When planning a wedding, many factors come into play for each couple.  Selecting the venue is often times one of the most difficult decisions and can feel like a daunting task. When Hailey and Kyle arrived at The Four Seasons Los Angeles, they were greeted with kind staff, true hospitality, and immediately knew that it was the right location. “We knew from the first visit that not only was the venue beautiful, but that they would be a pleasure to work with” says Hailey. Her vision for their wedding was romantic and glamorous which doesn’t even begin to sum up the beauty that was created by an amazing team of vendors for their special day. “The most important thing to us was to have elements of surprise in our design while still feeling like a wedding.” Hailey explains “that without the beautiful custom hanging mirrors, it would have just been another draped ballroom that we’ve all seen time and time again.” It was the small details that were really important to them.  Hailey not only has impeccable decor taste but had a vision to wear 3 custom gowns for each special moment of her wedding with gorgeous coordinating accessories. Her first gown was romantic, soft, and feminine, all words that encompass how you should feel as a bride. Her second dress was more form fitting which added an element of sexy while still being very bridal with the billowing tulle layers on the bottom of the mermaid gown. Her third dress was a gorgeous beaded dress with an illusion back that was perfect for dancing!

We have seen many white on white weddings but the transformation of the Four Seasons LA was truly a masterpiece. Starting from the entry to the garden all the way through to the ballroom, every single walk way and space were perfectly draped with luxurious white fabric. Gold and crystal chandeliers adorned each walkway. We loved how the white seamless dance floor covered the entire ballroom, with not one square foot of carpet showing. The tall white floral centerpieces were truly spectacular, but we can’t stop starting at their sweetheart table overflowing with long stemmed white phaleonopsis orchids.  The magic and illumination was created with the rose gold chairs, mirror dining tables and crystal taper candelabras.  Up close, gold embossed menu cards and laser cut gold acrylic stir sticks personalized to each guests names.  Truly no detail was overlooked. When we asked Hailey to describe a moment that they would cherish forever, dancing with their family and friends on the dance floor was what came to mind. “Each person looked like they were just as happy and overjoyed as the two of us. To see all that happiness and love in one room was breathtaking.”

On Tuesday, May 12 the Italian-inspired hotel Mr. C Beverly Hills hosted “May Mingle” to showcase their newly refreshed 12th floor Starlight ballroom, which now boasts a neutral color palette with grey carpeting, white walls, and new sconces – providing a blank canvas for guests to truly design the space how they’d like. With stunning panoramic views of the Los Angeles landscape and a glass wrap-around balcony with an outdoor terrace, the ballroom lends itself as an ideal setting for a variety of events. Soon, the room will also include a removable bar, which will feature beers and cocktails on-tap. Mr. C Beverly Hills, which opened in 2011 by fourth generation Cipriani brothers Ignazio and Maggio, is steps away from Rodeo Drive and represents a modern version of old-world simplicity with European glamour, providing today’s traveler with a comfortable, elegant, and effortless experience that blends contemporary amenities with discreet, personalized service. On a similar thread of  sophistication with modern elegance, JINZA Couture Bridal debuted their gowns to the So Cal event industry and announced their 2nd store in West Hollywood California, their first in San Francisco.  JINZA gowns are individually made using the  finest French lace, pure silk satin, organza taffeta, crepe and chiffon to create lightweight and sophisticated Bridal Fashions.

We are so excited to showcase our first table we sponsored from Luxe Linen‘s “Luxe Launch 2015″ series at Bel-Air Bay Club. This “Gothic Garden” table was designed by the talented AOO Events and AOO Floral.

Thank you Krista Mason Photography and Weintraub Photography for these images.

We have an exclusive interview with AOO Events conducted by Kristin Banta of Kristin Banta Events. See below for the full Q&A session and photos.

This is really unexpected and very interesting- what was your inspiration behind this?
We obviously started with this lovely linen. We decided to do something opposite of what the natural occurrence of this linen may have been. We brought in a lot of black and lacquer and did a juxtaposition of this linen.

What makes this so compelling to me is that it is so unexpected. I am always looking for a point of view and fresh spin on things. Did you have an idea prior to the linen or did the linen start it all?
It all started with the linen. As soon as I saw this linen, I knew I wanted to take it in this direction and bring a dark side to it.

I love all of the elements on the table. How much of this developed through the course of the table design versus you saw something and you ran with it?
Well, I had a vision at the beginning, but a lot of it developed throughout the process which started a week ago I guess. My natural background is in art installation so I wanted to bring that into the table.

Was there anything that you played with at the very end that you decided to keep?
Really all of this has been sitting on my table for the last week. I think the linen lends itself to the mix match and patterns and glassware. That was the natural direction for me to go with this. The harsh reality is the lacquer and florals are very sexy to me and I think they are a little unexpected together.

We are so excited to showcase our first table we sponsored from Luxe Linen‘s “Luxe Launch 2015″ series at Sherwood Country Club. This “Marie Antoinette” table was designed by the talented Felici Events and Coco Rose Design.

Why did you choose this linen?

It was available, ha ha. I actually love it because of the texture and rainbow hues.

How did you build up from there?

From there, we went to Otis and Pearl for our rentals. They’re amazing. And Nina Kincaid from Coco Rose Designs did our florals. At that point, I had a swatch of the linen we knew we were going to use. We talked about it having a “Marie Antoinette” theme and we got the chairs from Revelry to match.

Is there a particular detail you love the most?

I do love the strawberries. They’re different.

Can you describe the flowers?

Those are merlot carnations in the high bunch, which is actually a new carnation, and french tulips in the small tabletop vase

You Only Live Once! Produced and Designed by Marianne for Special Occasions EventsWhat a night…every detail was considered and coordinated. We love the repeat yellow and black pattern in the overall design. We provided the drapery, tables, chairs, mirrored wall panels and lounge pieces.

Our Gold Venice furniture line was used to design the lounge area. Black yellow and white stripes were painted on mirrors and used as perimeter decor. Yellow Roses and Crystals hung from ribbons as part of the ceiling decor. Below you will also see a close up of the mirrored wall panels with a custom black, yellow and white hand painted design. The seating cards were placed on a mirror front bar that we hand painted with the theme colors for the event. The room was flooded with golden light and our mirror pedestals reflected the colors in the room. Thank you Joan Fuller Photography for these gorgeous photos.

We worked with Linda Howard Events and LA Premier Flowers to create this incredible reception design for a wedding at the Beverly Hills Hotel. We hung thousands of crystals on silk ribbons in the ballroom. The space was transformed by lighting, changing from blue to pink throughout the evening.

The reception design was all about the custom fabrics and ribbons. When the light reflected off of the pleating, a very unique and special look filled the room. Revelry provided custom linens, mirror top tables, ceiling treatment and draping.

The ballroom carpet was completely covered with a white dance floor and plush white carpet. The walls were draped in white chiffon, elegantly pulled back at the entrance. The cake table was also a focal point at the entrance, placed directly behind the sweetheart table.

The room transitioned into a gorgeous blue during dinner. Guests dined at tables with custom linens, mirrored table tops and White Chloe Chameleon Chairs from Classic Party Rentals. Centerpieces were created with orchids.
