Purple Love

 This wedding is a #throwbackthursday #tbt. Our lovely Bride was in love with purple and the bling! The wedding ceremony was held at a historical catholic church in San Juan Capistrano, CA and the reception then followed at the Huntington Beach Hyatt. These details don't do justice to everything else that was used for that special day. But here's some quick photos from our phone! More photos coming soon! Stay tuned!

Green and Gray

Here are a few of the fabulous photos from another BFD wedding. This wedding took place at the Westin South Coast in the lovely city of Costa Mesa.

It was very traditional yet modern Catholic wedding. Centerpieces were silver manzanita trees with hanging tea candles, a lot of hydrangeas and cymbidium orchids.

Congratulations to the happy couple! Thank you so much for choosing BFD!

Hopefully we can come back to this post and share more photos from the lovely event! =)

Glenn & Maria's Purple Glam Wedding!

I have known Glenn, the Groom since we worked at the Glendale Galleria GAP (220!) store together back in the early 2000's. We became very close friends and made tons of crazy memories! Time of course came into place and our lives went into different directions, but Glenn has always been someone I will always be fond of. He was always a great friend to anyone and everyone! We were also the BEST cashiers at the GAP! hahaha...

It was nice to know that he found the LOVE of his life in Maria. I wish you both the very best, especially now with your journey together and your added little one Caitlyn.

The couple were wed at their local St. Dominic Catholic Church in Los Angeles (Eagle Rock), CA. The beautiful and glamorous reception followed at the Universal Sheraton right next to Universal Studios! We were were fortunate enough to be invited as guest to the reception and had a great time celebrating with the couple and seeing familiar faces!

All Bouquets and Boutonnieres were done by Bloomeria~Floral Design and made sure was arranged with extra love!

Glenn & Maria THANK YOU for choosing BFD!!!!

Summer Wedding....

We absolutely loved working with Shanae, one of the sweetest Bride's we have met! Her photo with the bouquet was featured in one of our Bridal Shows at the David's Bridal in Ontario, CA (Future blog post on that event, coming soon).

The Bride and Groom were wed at the House of Worship of the Church of Christ/Iglesia Ni Cristo in the Local of Montclair and later gathered their family and loved ones in a nearby town for a beautiful reception. It was a hot summer day, but everything came out beautiful!

Flower used: Calla Lilly's , Lisanthias, Mums, Daisies, Roses and Stock.

..:::Jimmy & Kathy::..

I totally fell in love with Jimmy & Kathy! Two of the most nicest people I've ever met!

They were wed at the beautiful and modern SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. This is a great venue! One of  my own personal picks for my special day as well. They have a great private area for the bride and groom to prepare and a great place to have a nice ceremony right in the heart of the hotel. The ceremony area is secluded from what's going on around or inside the hotel itself. You also don't hear or see all the LA traffic, since it is outdoors and located in a very popular street in Beverly Hills.

Jimmy, the Groom got in contact with me through his friend who was doing coordinating for SBE in Gladstones Restaurant of Malibu. It was an honor to have them refer Jimmy to BFD after witnessing our work there previously for a wedding of my clients Lisa and James (blog post to come soon). To hear from Jimmy was great and it took almost a year to plan with Jimmy and Kathy's special day.

Their colors were Gray and Yellow. Most of the florals were of white. LED's were also a huge part of their centerpieces and they also included fabulous lighting in the ballroom itself to compliment the room and the tables.

It was a fabulous day!

I have included some photos on here of course, but if you'd like to see their e-session you can find that here which was featured on Style Me Pretty.

You may also find snapshots of their gorgeous wedding here and here! All photo credits goes out to their great photographer, who you can read about and look at their photos all day! Find them here!

Enjoy! And Thank you and Congrats again to Jimmy & Kathy Ou!

A Bride and Her Bridesmaids

Ison Wedding - 2012

The Bride and good friend of mine Haydee sent me several photos from her wedding today! Although I loved every single photo she shared with me, this one for some reason  stood out the most! 

I think there's just something so great about having your best  friends/family part of your wedding, not just to attend but to be right by your side looking just as fabulous! From experience being part of someone's wedding is a huge task but most of all such a great honor! 

Many of the Bride's I've worked with desire to  make sure their entourage is looking sharp, not overpowering the Bride & Groom, but stand out in some way. The floral design is always complimentary to their attire and/or style of the event. Some Bride's even get creative, like Haydee did, by adding on the peacock feathers to each bouquet, as those were a primary essential in the designs of the wedding. Some Bride's like to distinguish each bridesmaid with different ribbon for their bouquet holder or even a different flower as well as adding on special pendants on each arrangement.

 There are many great ideas out there and many ways you can make your girls feel special and unique. And we can't forget the guys! Yes Grooms can make their Groomsmen and Best Man feel just as special with their boutonnieres. If you ever get stuck on what you can do for your entourage, make sure to ask your designer for some suggestions. Contact BFD and we can give you some great ideas unique to you and your cherished wedding entourage!

More photos and details  to come on Haydee & Jon's Wedding!
