I am totally wild for this summery color combo- spicy oranges and corals against cool aqua. Leah and David wanted hip, artistic, modern decor for their beachside wedding at the beautiful Bel Air Bay Club. Bless Leah’s heart; she was open to a huge range of funky, happy flowers, including cockscomb (the one that looks like a fuzzy orange brain) and pincushion proteas. These quirky flowers really gave the arrangements more texture and drama. I love a girl who can see the beauty in cockscomb.
Leah wanted a luxe tropical feel, but she wanted to do it without the typical beachy elements like sand and shells. We brought in lots of elegant white coral, beautiful candlelight, fabric wrapped vases, and orange sea fans.
Meet the gorgeous bride!
The ceremony took place on a grassy lawn overlooking Pacific Palisades. Needless to say, it didn’t need much beautifying!
Two honored guests carried petite bouquets of happy orange flowers. That blue looks stunning against the orange, doesn’t it?
I loved that each bridesmaid carried unique bouquets and wore unique dresses. Such a well-dressed bridal party!
I love the anticipation in this picture!
Coral peonies, voodoo movie star roses, mokara orchids, callas, tulips, and more.
And now for the ravishing reception details!
There were two table setups, both using a variety of vases and candles. I am quite surprised I found fabric for the vases that matched the napkins to a T.
Tons of texture in these lush arrangements.
Geberas, roses, mokara orchids, ranunuculus, pincushions, cockscomb and more.
I found these delicate hanging candles and though they’d work beautifully for this wedding.
The elegant cake was propped up on glass cubes filled with orchids and coral.
I see an orange cat, popcorn, pizza boxes and beer. A man’s dream come true? I’m a little confused, but I love it!
Can’t forget those little extra touches!
Leah and David, may your life together be abundantly blessed! I had such a blast working with you and seeing it all come together. Enjoy wedded bliss!!!
Thank you to the fabulous planner Kelly Demaray for being so much fun during the planning and execution of this very detailed wedding. You are so sweet!
To the staff at Bel Air Bay Club- I’ve never been treated so kindly at a wedding before. You were so cheerful and helpful. A+!
