Romantic white wedding by the lake ~ Jennifer and Richard

This past summer, we had a complete pleasure of designing a wedding on a beautiful lake in Minnesota.  We enjoyed working with this beautiful family and so honored to be a part of their wedding celebration.  The wedding took place at the family’s estate in northern Minnesota.  The beautiful bride Jennifer wanted a classic and timeless wedding, the white neutral palette was the obvious choice.  The lush forest setting was a perfect backdrop for this lakeside wedding.  This island on the peninsula is home to thousands of birch trees, it was absolutely stunning!  We took full advantage of the shades and designed the long T-shape tables around these trees to accomodate 70 guests. White nantucket lanterns lined the path for the bride as she crossed over to the dock where the ceremony was located.  The reception celebration included a long table setting with lush white florals.  White peonies, garden roses, fuffy hydrangeas and of course elegant white phalaenopsis orchids were featured.  We love how our custom table linens looked with this setting.  It mimics the leaves from the beautiful birch trees.
We are so lucky here at Karen Tran Florals to share this beautiful day with this special couple.  Thank you so much Jennifer and Richard! Congratulations to you both!

Blush pink vintage wedding the Hotel Del Coronado

We adore the Hotel Del Coronado and we love blush colored wedding.  What a beautiful combination!  The bride Erin was glamorous, gorgeous and incredibly stunning on her wedding day.  Her Vera Wang dress was a perfect balance of vintage and modern.  The grand ballroom at the Hotel Del Coronado sparkled with beautiful linens from La Tavola and large blush pink florals.  In keeping with the romantic vintage theme, we used an abundance of crystal strands draping off these romantic centerpieces.  Our sweet bride Erin adores lace and vintage glam.  Therefore a plethora of lace wrappings and vintage brooches were used throughout the tables.  We are specially fond the couple’s sweetheart table where they displayed the original china from Erin’s grandmother.  So sweet! Congratulations to the beautiful couple!
Many thanks to Pam Scott Photography for these images.

Blush and neutral colored wedding inspirations

Without a doubt the neutral and blush colors are the most popular hues for weddings this last couple of years.  And do you  blame a bride for loving this romantic color palette?  We designed the tabletop for that blushing bride who loves all things feminine and dreamy.  The tent setting with a crystal chandelier set a beautiful tone for this luxurious tabletop.  The gorgeous ruffled table linen provided by Nuage Designs in New York blends wonderfully with our custom made fabric flowers used throughout the design as well as the chair covers. Fine jewels added sparkles to the  place setting and glass vessels.  The wedding setting is indeed every girl’s dream…

French Coastal Chic wedding at the Montage Laguna Beach

We felt right at home designing this special wedding for the beautiful bride Tina and her groom Corey at the Montage Laguna beach.  The bride’s love for the french coastal chic decor transpire on the pacific lawn of this upscale resort.  The wedding canopy was drenched with drift wood, hanging succulents, roses and elegant orchids and adorn with a natural floral chandelier.  The two massive floral pieces sat on scalelike colomns at entrance to the ceremony  greeted the guests as they sat down on the oceanfront ceremony lawn.  We love the use of blush and neutral palette and multiple texture for this wedding.  We will be posting the details of this exquisite wedding soon.

White and blush wedding at the Grand Del Mar Capella chapel

The beautiful and elegant blush shades has got to be the most popular and desirable color combination this year.  Recently we designed an elegant wedding at the Grand Del mar playing off this gorgeous color palette.  We introduced delicate fabrics and luxurious crystal brooches to their table setting.  Attention to small intricate details were definitely key for this wedding.  Each vessel for the table was carefully wrapped and embellished with unique adornment.  The neutral colors blends beautifully with the Grand Del Mar’s opulent decor and setting.  Gold table linens and overlays paired with amber lighting in the Capella chapel set the perfect tone for this classic and romantic wedding.
Many thanks to Joseph Matthew for these gorgeous images.

The Four Seasons Resort Maui Wedding

It’s always a day in paradise when we get to design a wedding in Maui.  This wedding was no exception.  The elegant ceremony and dinner reception both took place at the Four Seasons Resort infamous oceanfront lawn. How can we do that you ask?  Well, our Karen Tran Team worked expeditiously to turn over the ceremony space into a dining paradise that feasted the guests eyes. We took the bride’s love for gold, peonies, orchids, and bling (then again, what girl doesn’t like peonies and sparkle) and created a dreamy ceremony, glimmering with swags of crystal strands and billowing with peonies and bouquets of phalaenopsis orchids. A fantasy walk down the aisle wouldn’t be complete without a luxurious carpet of white rose petals. As the Maui sunset began, the candles were lit on their sumptuous king’s table. Each vase and vessel was embellished with either French satin ribbon, rhinestone brooches, or overflowing blooms. Guests took their seats upon chiavari chairs, dressed with our custom drape and crystal band, and enjoyed the ocean breeze well into the night. Many mahalos to Anna Kim Photography for the dazzling images!

The couple’s guests dined underneath the romantic Maui skies surrounded with swaying palm trees while listening to the soft crashing of the waves. We hope you enjoy this video.

Escort card table: Making a Grand Statement

Thinking outside of the box in designing your Escort table can really make a great statement.  How about a 7 ft high floral display we designed for the foyer of the Grand Del Mar?  This lush and opulent floral piece was a show stopper and made a Grand statement for this extraordinary wedding at the Grand Del Mar.
