Whimsical Wedding at Pelican Hill Resort

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.
