By | Bar Mitzvah | No Comments

We are thrilled to have been a part of Charlie’s sports themed Bar Mitzvah!

Charlie’s Bar Mitzvah was far from ordinary. He celebrated this special day with his closest family and friends.  Becker and the Co planned an exceptional event at the Katz Pavilion at Steven S. Wise, and the details were eye catching.

Large frames displayed jerseys on the top of the truss from various sports teams. Basketball hoops were also placed around the venue as well. Every tabletop was decorated with trophies, tea candles lit in glass holders, and vibrant red bouquets of roses. The finishing touch was the large assembly of gushing flowers that sat in tall, mirrored vases and scattered throughout the room designed by Butterfly Floral Event and Design.

Red accent chairs and barstools were placed at every table to offer a beautiful pop of color. Customized booths with Charlie’s name were set up around the venue to provide food and beverage for his family and friends to enjoy.

We had the pleasure of creating a sports arena ambiance by using purple and red hued lights throughout the venue and on the main stage. Large LED screens with Charlie’s name acted as the backdrop of the main stage and illuminated with red lights. It was a truly special and spectacular event!

Special thanks to Shumanev Production for capturing the beautiful details and moments at Charlie’s sports themed Bar Mitzvah.

Whimsical Wedding at Pelican Hill Resort

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

The Rivani’s celebrated their whimsical wedding at Pelican Hill Resort with their closest family and friends. Stunning in every way, we are thrilled to have been a part of an amazing vendor team to make this couple’s day as special as it could be.

For the ceremony, Shawna Yamamoto transformed the rotunda at Pelican Hill Resort into a beautiful floral masterpiece. She used pink, red, and purple tones. Our beautiful sparklers illuminated the aisle as our couple took their celebratory walk down the aisle after saying “I do”.

The reception was filled with gorgeous custom floral arrangements, romantic tabletops, and sleek gold and black chairs from Chameleon Chair Collection. Inspired by the ambiance of the Great Hall in Harry Potter, a custom floating candle installation above the tabletops and dance floor. This created an optical illusion and added a magical touch to the celebration.

A vibrant performance by La Follies blew the guests away. The couple’s first dance was perfect in every way on the grand ballroom floor. Our lighting design perfectly lit the custom monogrammed dance floor. Special thanks to Duke Images for capturing all the amazing details and special moments. We are grateful to be a part of the Rivani’s special day.

Holiday Floral Themed Corporate Party

By | Corporate Events, Social Events | No Comments

To celebrate the holiday season, we are thrilled to have been a part of this holiday floral themed corporate party planned by Anita Gohari.

This holiday corporate party is one to remember! Every detail of this party was stunning and breathtaking. As guests arrived at the Palos Verdes Estate, they were immediately greeted with a grand entryway. We used string lights and seamlessly integrated them into the beautiful arch.

As the candlelights lit the pathway into the estate, it led to two large bespoke reindeer topiaries designed by The Empty Vase. The design featured thousands of crimson carnations, vanda blooms, fresh green moss, and metallic hand-painted eucalyptus for the antlers! Because the reindeers were a work of art, we wanted to highlight the vibrant colors from the flowers using uplighting.

When guests entered the estate, whimsical and unique floral arrangements were placed throughout the tabletops along with several candlelights.

We used uplighting on every tree throughout the entire outside lounge area to create a relaxing ambiance. Two large trees were also wrapped with string lights to elevate the ambiance some more. The pool was filled with glass bowls with candles, which illuminated and reflected beautifully under the night sky. Revelry Event Design provided simple and modern furniture in the lounge area with pops of red accents to celebrate the holiday season.

Lastly, special thanks to Visuals by Arpit for capturing the gorgeous details of this holiday floral themed corporate party! Overall we loved being a part of this festive event.

Nick Bateman and Maria Corrigan’s Fairytale Wedding on People Magazine

By | Press, Weddings and Special Events | No Comments

A decade’s long love, Nick Bateman and Maria Corrigan tied the knot at  Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, California, to make their fairytale wedding come true. 

These two Canadians moved to the Los Angeles area four years ago, so it was only fitting that they shared their vows in the dreamy town of Malibu. Their ten-month old son, Chase, joined in on the celebration in his dapper tuxedo onesie. Chase was smiling and happy throughout the entire evening. 

Photographer Jenny Quicksall, captured Nick’s reaction to Maria in her dashing Trishpeng gown beautifully. The model was speechless at his bride’s beauty. Intricate lights by The Lighter Side dangled from what seemed like the sky above while the couple sweetly spoke their vows to one another. An intimate gathering with close friends and family was the picture-perfect scene. When both exchanged their “I do’s” they sealed their forever love with a kiss that will last a lifetime. As the newly married couple strolled down the aisle as man and wife, the guests woo’d and cheered with absolute joy.

The reception was full of plush florals and greenery by Butterfly Floral, stunning glass chandeliers, and delicate linens by Latavo Linen. Nick and Maria danced together for the first time as a married couple while DJ This is Good Music played soft music in the background. The attendees celebrated the night away with The Buttered End cake and Primo’s Donuts- leaving full and happy! Hashtag Photobooth provided a photo booth for guests to use so they could capture the cheerful evening in pictures that would last a lifetime.

“The ceremony took place in the garden, beneath a sprawling tree draped in twinkling lights. Two oversized arrangements of white roses flanked the aisle, and were later repurposed by the dance floor…The couple spent a year planning their summer wedding, hiring Bluebell Events to create a romantic, vintage-inspired outdoor wedding at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu. “I’m from Nebraska and Baker is from Texas, so we both really love the outdoors,” says Emily. “Calamigos was the only venue we looked at because it reminded us of home. It was so romantic, and didn’t feel stuffy or over-the-top.”
