Purple Haze Bouquet

Here’s a bouquet that really gets my juices flowing! Dark purple anemone intermingle with amnesia roses and calla lilies. The contrast of green Brazilian berries, purple kale, succulents, and a wisp of hanging amaranthus take this bouquet to a whole other dimension. ~Aileen

Rustic elegance at The Hotel Del Coronado ~ Coronet Ballroom

The Coronet Room is known for its dramatic sugar-pine ceiling and striking chandelier. So when we received the opportunity to design an opulent and rustic corporate event, we naturally paired it with dark chocolate linens, fruitwood chiavari chairs, and richly colored florals of purple, red and green. Tall wrought iron candelabras were teeming with a luxurious mix of exotic orchids, roses, and purple kale. Vibrant tulips and hanging succulents cascaded from the centerpieces, while romantic votive candles kept them illuminated through out the night. Pam Scott Photography did a fantastic job of capturing the festive old world elegance of this affair. Thank you Pam!!

It’s no surprise that Spring is my favorite season for flowers. But with blooms like eye popping tulips, delicate sweet pea, and gorgeous lisianthus, can you blame me? Here is a tour de force of purple in a wild, yet romantically fashioned bouquet. ~ Aileen Tran

Pale Toned Wedding Bouquet

US Grant Royal Wedding Show

San Diego experienced its first white Winter at the historic US Grant Bridal Show. Inspired by snow, ice queens, and crystals, we set out to create a modern and chic booth of pure white and silver tones. Crisp white orchids, chrome grape wood, and icy acrylic were unexpected twists. Gleaming chandeliers, crystal embellishments, and tufted furniture provided by Concept Events gave it a posh elegance. We teamed up with Susanne of Crown Weddings, who offered her charming talents to the many brides that flocked to this royal affair. The amazing Jennifer of Simply Posh Design created stunning stationary that combined vintage brooches and whimsical paper for invitations and menus with regal finesse. We were lucky enough to have Pam Scott capture every detail of this winter wonderland!
