Josh & Bobby | Featured in Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine

By | Press, Uncategorized, Wedding Inspiration, Weddings and Special Events | No Comments

Josh and Bobby’s Beverly Hills Wedding has been featured in the latest issue of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine!

“For some couples, it’s love at first sight. Others travel a long and winding road. Realtor Bobby Boyd and Bravo Network’s Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles realtor Josh Flagg knew each other for 10 years before their stars aligned. One was single and the other ending a relationship when they met again, and Josh asked Bobby to dinner. “Personality-wise, we’re very similar,” says Bobby. “We both love to be the life of the party, so I wasn’t sure how that would work.” But Bobby agreed to the date, and while talking long into the night, he discovered Josh’s “sweet, romantic” side. The intensity of the relationship was somewhat disconcerting for Bobby, who thought they might be on “different pages.” But a particularly heartfelt message from Josh opened his eyes. “Holy crap!” said Bobby. “This must be what it’s like to be falling in love…”

By | Wedding Inspiration, Weddings and Special Events | No Comments

Married in Santa Barbara, Sanaz and Jason’s Ritz-Carlton Bacara Resort wedding ceremony took place outdoors in a transparent tent illuminated by chandeliers and candlelight that dotted an all-white aisle. The two said I do under a lovely draped chuppah decorated with loose greenery and ivory florals.

Bluebell Events planned a beautiful reception for our newlyweds. Rectangular and square tables along with white tufted lounge seating filled the room. Amber uplighting accented beautiful floral decor. Lush heightened floral arrangements with overflowing greenery and ivory blooms adorned the tabletops.

The couple took their first dance as husband and wife while we projected textured lighting onto the dance floor. Family and friends then joined Sanaz and Jason on the dancefloor to listen to the sound of a live band play. As the party went into full swing the room was illuminated with a blue glow and to the guest’s surprise, a shower of confetti rained over the dance floor!

By | Wedding Inspiration, Weddings and Special Events | No Comments

This stunning Beverly Hills Hotel wedding planned by International Event Company featured a jaw-dropping nighttime ceremony design! Adorning the metal gates of the ceremony entrance, a gorgeous display of loose greenery and ivory blooms by Mark’s Garden. Chandeliers on hooks dotted an aisle of greenery and blooms leading to a chuppah constructed of yet again, lush ivory florals truly creating a Secret Garden vibe.

After Renee and Bobby said I do in their enchanting ceremony setting, the celebration moved to the ballroom where impeccable design followed. The palette of their reception drew from ivory with subtle hints of blush. Round tables filled the ballroom surrounded by transparent chairs and silver flatware while full floral centerpieces decorated each table. Chandeliers hung from above and blush and gold lighting illuminated the room.

The floral design and decorative accents paired with a neutral palette created an unforgettable event with imagery captured by Jessica Claire!

A Neon Four Seasons Bar Mitzvah

By | Weddings and Special Events | No Comments

Produced and designed by JOWY Productions, this neon Bar Mitzvah at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills was a glowing celebration full of fun and whimsical details. All black draping helped set a dark tone throughout the ballroom, allowing our purple and blue uplighting to fill the room with a colorful glow. A multi-colored balloon installment by Balloon Celebrations hung from the ceiling in the center of the room as a playful detail that tied together all of the bold colors seen throughout the design.

Black velvet lounges paired with bright pillows and glowing coffee tables created a plush space for guests to lounge, in addition to the modern cocktail tables that were paired with clear chairs. Tables covered in black sequined linens surrounded the custom black dance floor by Barker Decor Service with our lighting wash illuminating the gorgeous design. Tablescapes included glowing candlelight, modern black goblets, and unique floral centerpieces by CJ Matsumoto that were perfectly highlighted by our pin spot lighting. Guests could either be found enjoying themselves on the dance floor to the tunes played by CheckOne2 Entertainment, or battling friends on the extra-long foosball table.

We were thrilled to be part of the vendor team that brought this modern neon Mitzvah to life! Special thank you to John Solano Photography for capturing all of the memorable details perfectly!

Samantha & Adam | A Seaside Wedding

By | Wedding Inspiration, Weddings and Special Events | No Comments

Planned by Bluebell Events Samantha and Adam had an intimate seaside wedding that pulled from a palette of ivory and hues of blue. The wedding was held at Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica. White chairs lined each side of the aisle at their ceremony and our couple exchanged vows under a chuppah constructed of wooden branches draped in white linen and adorned with ivory florals dotted with blue blooms.

After our newlyweds tied the knot, festivities moved indoors. Guests were met by an escort table decorated with signage of iconic Hollywood movies. Bluebell Events and her team took a twist on escort cards. The escort cards resembled movie tickets carrying out Hollywood movie theme. Round tables filled the reception area adorned with floating candles and floral centerpieces.

When Samantha and Adam were ready to make their entrance we ensured all eyes were on them by projecting an amber-hued rose gobo design onto the dancefloor. It’s safe to say that all eyes remained on our happy couple for the remainder of the evening as they celebrated with their closest family and friends!
