About thetreasuredpetal

When my friend Kelly Demaray first contacted me about her clients’ Firebird Ballet inspired wedding, I knew it would be so fabulous. There would be candlelight, a dramatic palette of fiery oranges, reds and eggplant, and lots of moonlit dancing beneath the tall buildings of downtown L.A. - the perfect urban setting for Cafe Pinot. Not to mention the fabulous Rebecca of Docuvitae would be photographing. Many thanks to Rebecca for sharing these images with us!

Best of all, they have an amazing proposal story: the bride Kirsten is a dancer, and the groom Jonas proposed to her on stage after they watched the Firebird Ballet (Kirsten’s favorite ballet ever!) What a man! As Kirsten’s “Man of Honor” said matter of factly at our consultation, “Everyone needs a Jonas!”

Here’s a painting inspired by the ballet:

Kelly emailed me a picture of the gorgeous invitations to get the creative juices flowing. Weddingbee PRO Courtney from Flush Designs was able to mesh the passion of the Firebird Ballet with Kirsten and Jonas’ love of art deco. To see these perfect invitations from every angle, check out Courtney’s beautiful blog post!

Our bride, Kirsten. She is a real beauty with such a contagious energy about her.

Jonas was such a dapper groom.

Kirsten’s bouquet was made of the most luscious burgundy peonies, dahlias, and black baccarra roses. She also asked that a few blue flowers be added into the mix, as this is considered good luck in Sweden. I tucked in some pale blue delphinium blossoms. I love this color combo, and now I’m dying to do a deep wine and periwinkle wedding!

The bridesmaids were uniquely attired in plum dresses of their own choosing. Their shawls were hand-knit by a loved one, and their wild sunset bouquets tied their look together. A reader asked me if I think orange circus roses pair well with eggplant dresses- the image speaks for itself. ;)

My fav detail of all: the cake.

I’ll be able to show you much more of this fabulous wedding in the days to come, and give you the full scoop on this amazing couple. For now, I’m off to the dessert to visit my sister and her new husband! Have a GREAT week!
