US Grant Hotel Black Gold & Red Gatsby Wedding Reception Part #2

MISHA & CECIL

US GRANT HOTEL

PART 2 – THE CELEBRATION / RECEPTION

Using a rich color pallet of Black, Gold and a deep rich Reds, we created a sophisticated, chic and modern twist on the Gatsby Theme. We incorporated other glitzy Gatsby elements such as gold accents (charger plates, mercury votives, and gold vases), pearls and crystal details in the floral decor elements and rich elegant sequin linens for all the tables.  And of course, what would a Gatsby inspired wedding be without large ostrich feathers and a staple champagne tower.

We used black sequin linens for the guest tables and sweetheart table by APR Fine Linens and used a combination of round tables and two long rectangular tables framing either side of the dancefloor. read more

PART 1 – PRE-CEREMONY & CEREMONY

Super gracious, very fashionable & stylish,  and truly beautiful (inside and out) are just a few words I could use to describe this power couple (Misha & Cecil).  I was so excited to get the wonderful opportunity to work with them to create their chic Great Gatsby inspired dream wedding.   They found me through seeing some of my work at the Prado Balboa Park where I designed and planned a Gatsby inspired themed wedding for another couple in 2014 (Jennifer & Chad) and they had pretty much decided I was “There girl” (wedding planner) before meeting me in person.  I was so honored of course!  They too really loved the Gatsby inspired theme, so we created their chic Gatsby themed wedding with their unique spin on the design. You can see more of the Gatsby design elements in the reception details in Part 2 “The Celebration/Reception” blog post. read more

THE HOTEL DEL CORONADO

PART 2 – THE CELEBRATION

Designing and planning this glamorous gold, lovely lace and lavender wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado was so much fun!  The bride (Kathryn) and Groom (Nick) lived on the East Coast, so we planned their destination wedding all over the phone. In fact, I met her for the first time at the Rehearsal.  She intrusted me with all the planning and design, which was so fun for me.  In fact, at the beginning of the design process, the I asked her “what are some of your favorite wedding design elements and colors”, to which she replied, ” I love lace and bling and my colors are ivory, violet/lavender, and gold”.  Then of course, she shared her pinterest board with me and I saw that she loved opulent floral centerpieces and got a good sense of her style, so from there it was a fun design process and collaboration with Bethany and Splendid Sentiments for floral decor.  We decided to keep the Ceremony and Reception mostly soft ivory, gold and lace (shown in Part #1)  and the Cocktail hour we played up the lavender color.  I feel in love with Concept Event Designs new lace linen with a gold soft bridal satin. read more

As for the decor/design of this beautiful wedding, the bride allowed me to truly showcase my expertise and design skills by giving me pretty much design control.  I presented ideas I thought would be amazing and it seemed to click perfectly with your design aesthetic – we also through in some surprises she didn’t know about.   The results are magical!  At the beginning of the design process, the I asked her “what are some of your favorite wedding design elements and colors”, to which she replied, ” I LOVE lace and bling and my colors are ivory, violet/lavender, and gold”.  Then of course, she shared her pinterest board with me and I saw that she loved opulent floral centerpieces and got a good sense of her style, so from there it was a fun design process and collaboration with Bethany and Splendid Sentiments for floral decor.  We decided to keep the Ceremony and Reception mostly soft ivory, gold and lace and the Cocktail hour we played up the lavender color.  I feel in love with Concept Event Designs new lace linen with a gold soft bridal satin. read more
