Moroccan Modern Wedding at the Colony Palms in Palm Springs
Last winter I had the extreme pleasure of meeting the beautiful Kristy of Lounge Appeal when she asked me to design her wedding invitations for a then wedding in Italy. A few weeks, glasses of wine and chit chats later my surprisingly almost next door neighbor had become a friend and had changed the location from Italy back to San Diego. Although she had already had a planner on board from the beginning I jumped at the opportunity to design a special evening for her and Clint and wanted to create a stunning downtown San Diego wedding rehearsal dinner. She was the ultimate girly-girl who loved gold (me too!) and loved all things beautiful and sparkly, while Clint on the other hand was more streamlined and clean and modern. With this in mind, I wanted to create a gorgeous sparkly evening reminiscent of what a little girls dream would look like. Gold sequins, music boxes and 70′s era vintage eclectic decor pieces were mixed with modern white and silver streamlined vases for a fun juxtaposition of styles. To keep the modern edge, we stuck with an all white palette of flowers but mixed in a ton of different styles and textures from roses, lisianthus, hydrangea, orchids and anenome.http://alchemyfineevents.com/

And we’re back with more fun detail shots of the darling couple just a few weeks before their ‘I do’s’ at our Get Married Magazine Shoot at The Chamberlain in West Hollywood. With a combination of mid-century modern decor, glamorous fabrics and finishes, and bright and bold Noritake china and tableware, we created an eclectic surrounding to showcase what this darling couple would look like as Hollywood newlyweds entertaining in their new home. It was so sweet just how in love they were and interact in their ‘newlywed home’ setting.
The modern silver chandelier and chic periwinkle and gold chairs made for a bold combination when mixed with this patterned graphic rug and white mid-century style table by Form Decor.
For this modern table design we started with a mirrored cube as a center riser to place a modern inky black vase filled with lush open soft yellow peonies and yellow tulips, courtesy of Isari Flower Studio. We brought in different shades of yellow including dark and light amber and a gorgeous hand-blown glass vase by artist Jess Wainer.
We selected bold yellow and black geometric shapes of Nortiake china and for glassware we brought in crystal blues and inky black glassware for bold contrasts.
Hand-painted Thai silk fabric I found in New York was used for napkins and wrapped with bold gold chains for a modern napkin treatment with a wired on place card for each guest.
