We are so excited to plan our first ever wedding in beautiful Mexico and I am spending the next few days planning, devising, and outlining all of the BIG aspects of this destination wedding.
The Mexican landscape, flora, and architecture are incredibly inspiring and full of color and texture! Riviera Maya is the perfect palate for our event design team to create a wedding masterpiece. Hey, did I mention the weather?!
Here are a couple beautiful photos of a Mexican inspired event we designed. We had so much fun with all of the bright colors and linens!
We were fortunate to be asked to assist in the design of a wedding held in Indianapolis. We packed the car and had the flowers shipped direct from our California purveyor. Indianapolis was such a treat. I had no concept of what to expect from the Midwestern town. I was pleasantly surprised. First of all, the folks are as kind and helpful as possible. ALL of them. The location, D’Amore, was atop a hi rise building with beautiful views.. The design was a bit of hip and cool with romantic flair.
Here is a gorgeous wedding we did at the Four Seasons in Baltimore. I loved all the little touches from the wooden flower boxes and cloches to the wine stained menus and wood rounds. It was a pleasure working on this wedding for such a great couple.
I found this very small hill town in my travels in Italy this past summer. I loved it so much I visited three times. It has a fabulous history and many, many stories all told thru the art and architecture of the town. There is a fabulous juxtaposition of medieval ruins against very modern art. The grounds are perfect for an outdoor wedding located inside the remains of the original castle, built long, long ago. There is a breathtaking spot for the ceremony and many different spaces for the reception. Imagine a wedding “sotto le stelle” (under the stars). An adorable church is right across the piazza for a formal church service. A comfortable breeze is constant in this hilltown as well as some of the most amazing views.
My favorite fashion, floral and shopping images from Paris
During my month long stay in Paris, I took advantage of all that was offered, incredible shopping, beautiful markets, glorious flowers, delicious foods. One focus was planning a wedding in the “city of lights”. I scouted incredible locations for the perfect Parisian wedding. Of course my travels took me to Avenue George V where the incredible Four Seasons “George V” is located steps from the Champs Elysees. Givenchy, Hermes and the prefect church are right down the street! My other “fav” wedding hotel is the Ritz. Located in the old cobblestone Place Vendome, it is truly a perfect location and provides that hint of elegance right at the front door.
Buying your gown in Paris would be ideal. There are many couture boutiques offering the most stunning designs with the right look for anyone to be beautiful. Every time I passed a boutique, I took a look and snapped a shot of the window so when I return I can get right back to that store.
Flowers, flowers, flowers! Even the floral boutique “chains” had incredible store displays and sumptuous flowers and props. It was true eye candy. I visited the floral market on the Isle many times. There was the most beautiful orchid store. Orchids are a bit mysterious to me in their intricate color designs. The Place Maubert and Rue Moufftard markets were in my arrondissment (neighborhood). Twice a week I bought the freshest, prettiest flowers for my apartment.
So, if you are looking to plan a Paris wedding, we are ready to assist!
Just for kicks, look at these wedding festivities held at the Versailles, Four Seasons and several other “posh” Parisian locales. A bit over the top for me but I would have loved to plan that one! Click Here
