Today, we step into a styled shoot inspired by the traditional floating markets in Bangkok, Thailand with Sonia Sharma Events and Design and Celios Design. Originating in times and places where water transportation played and important role in daily life, floating markets were ways to sell vegetables, fruits and other goods from small boats. Most floating markets now operate as tourist attractions, with the most notable in Ratchaburi, Thailand called Damnoen Saduak.

Energized by the lively and bygone way of life, Sonia Sharma’s vision of her floating market was heightened with a fusion of color and beauty. A team consisting of Revelry Event DesignersEni Pra MakeupCouture Beauty TeamR-Mine Bespoke came together for the event, with the day captured by Andrena Photography


The team sourced tropical fruits and vegetables similar to those that are sold on the market in Thailand to recreate the atmosphere. Celio Paulo de Almeida’s recipe consisted of a mixture of flowers, fruits and vegetables using roses, garden flowers, daisies, sunflowers, carnations, apples, watermelons, peppers, mangos, pineapple, oranges, peaches, grapes and bananas.

They opted for the creation of a custom-made umbrella draped with full and delicate blooms over a traditional bouquet. The end result was simply stunning to behold.


Three R-Mine Bespoke gowns were worn by the model throughout the day. Arminé Ohanessian’s couture gowns magnetize the attention of fashion lovers around the world. As the creative designer of R-mine Bespoke, she compliments modernism with old-fashioned quality workmanship. R-mine caters to all occasions from timeless and elegant bridal gowns to show-stopping red carpet ensembles. The gowns used for the shoot included:

Chriselle: Vintage inspired silk chiffon gown with a pleated bodice; detailed with Chantilly lace cape sleeves which trail down to a deep low back. Skirt is hand draped and finished with a swarovski brooch.

Brooklyn: Halter neck gown with a plunging low back, made in a dotted charmeuse. Adorned with an art-deco inspired crystal belt.

Rosette: Strapless gown with a plunging v-neckline. Bodice is adorned with handmade rosettes and pleated detail. Skirt is hand draped and finished with a swarovski brooch. 


A truly beautiful vision. Dina Douglass shared with us her interpretation of the story from the day below in a short essay. 

She woke to find her dreams had been of flowers . . . flowers from the floating market on the midnight azure waters of her village. As the slumber fell from her eyes, she felt herself being drawn towards the water that had surrounded her since she was a girl. She dressed herself in white and tiptoed outside towards the beckoning call of the river. There, a parasol covered in vibrant blossoms awaited her hand. As she reached for it, she saw a red canoe floating nearby. The vessel was filled with flowers and fruits, each promising to take her on a journey bathed in mystery.

She stepped in, and the water gently carried her away from her home. She had always felt as one with the water and with the colors that now dotted the darkness of the river. The water knew her best, and she knew the water would know where to go.


Many thanks to this amazing California team for sharing their inspirational shoot exclusively with Strictly Weddings!

We are honored to be part of this “Midsummer Night’s Dream” wedding planned by Mindy Weiss and featured in Flutter Magazine. See the full magazine spread below:

“Once upon a time… In a land just above Malibu, there was a wedding ceremony like none other…where heavenly gardens, lush florals, whimsical accents, and an exquisite couple would come together to vow their love eternally.”

“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.


For May Mingle, a group of some of the best in the industry came together and collided their visions for what they thought would best enhance this beautiful new ballroom. Revelry Event Designers enhanced the space with their newest line of Upholstered Chrome Furniture, which paired perfectly with the new grey carpet. Their 100,000 square foot design studio houses a carefully curated collection of special event furniture that is to die for! You name it, they’ve got it. If they don’t, they can make it!


Their new collection was brought to life with stunning and lush florals by Luxe List Member Empty Vase. With a degree in Architecture and Design, Owner and Creative Director Saeed Babaeean, creates dazzling floral arrangements that include specially engineered topiaries and spectacular event installations. Since opening his shop in 1988, his exquisite creations and fastidious attention to detail have made him an icon within the Beverly Hills community.  At Mr. C May Mingle Empty Vase created a spectacular architectural floral design with Tulips, Orchids and Roses that brought color and drama to the space.

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. Using Luxe Linen’s Lismore Garden Taupe linen and Black Satin Lamour Napkins, the team decided to use our Black Venice Chairs with Nailhead Trim, which were the perfect choice for this design. Signature Party Rentals provided other rentals with china by Dish Wish. 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. Using Luxe Linen’s Vogue Sherbert linen and Rose Quartz Va Va Voom Napkins, the team decided to use our Florence Wood Chairs, which were the perfect choice for this Marie Antoinette inspired design. A Rental Connection and Otis and Pearl provided other rentals. Thank you Michelle from Michelle Lacson Photography for these images.

We have an exclusive interview with Zohe Felici conducted by Lara Burnap, editor of California Wedding Day. See below for the full Q&A session and photos.


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
