“La Boheme” Tablescape Featured in Grace Ormonde

We’re in love with this “La Boheme” tablescape featured in Grace Ormonde’s Fall/Winter 2017 issue. Beautifully designed by Nahid’s Global Events with floral design by Square Root Designs, this table was a showstopper at our LUXE Launch 2017.

The team’s inspiration came from our linen texture and colors. Although the linen was more towards the Persian/Moroccan concept, they we wanted to take it a step ahead and showcase a different design. They loved the mixture of metallics and different shapes so they went with that for floral shapes and all other elements on the table including the glassware.

The team wanted a wow-factor for all those who attended. The floral chandelier did just that. Since Vibiana’s ceiling is so high, the team contacted NFP Events to design a truss structure to make it look like a lower ceiling where Square Root Designs can hang the floral chandelier from.

We just absolutely love this vibrant and fun tabletop. Thank you Duke Photography for capturing it so beautifully!

Barcelona and Modernisme Inspired Tabletop Featured on Inside Weddings

Barcelona, Modernisme, Inspired, Tabletop, inside weddings, luxe linen

For the launch party of the new Luxe Linen line, wedding planners and event designers were paired with florists and assigned one of the new linens in order to create an original tablescape. “When I received my fabric swatch for my table, it reminded me of my recent trip to Barcelona,” says the planner. “You can’t think Barcelona and Modernisme without thinking Gaudi, so his architecture was another influence in the design and our chandelier was reflective of his hanging chain models that he created for his most iconic buildings.”

Contrasting the bold darkness of the gold-and-black “Mirage Onyx” linen were vibrant florals in a variety of shades. Amber-hued roses, fuchsia sweet peas, blue delphiniums, and orange orchids were among the blooms that filled the tablescape. Tapered periwinkle candles, ensconced in hurricanes, were placed throughout the blossoms. Gold chargers and flatware tied in with the linens, while silk napkins in a deep navy style – named “Indigo Giana” – provided a contrast. Modern and naturalistic elements were combined in the bright blue rock-like pieces that formed the place cards.

For the model who acted as the bride of the setting, the consultant was inspired by Beyoncé’s look during her performance at the 2017 Grammy Awards. He created a headdress with a sunburst appearance to allude to that moment, while the model wore a mostly sheer gown with a nude underlay.

The Luxe Linen launch party provides designers with an unusual challenge, which is valued by the professionals. “Being given the linen was a great process because you really had to create something from that swatch of fabric,” explains the planner. “You couldn’t come up with a design first and choose the linen to speak to that design. The linen truly dictated the direction I was going to take.”

We had the pleasure of working with this incredibly talented team to create this one-of-a-kind setup at the Huntley Hotel. This sophisticated coastal inspired styled shoot wouldn’t have been possible without Charis Events and Designer Dana.

The team created this concept that came to life at The Huntley Hotel with cascading florals throughout the venue, from ceremony to reception. The team beautifully paired our Caribbean Tangier linen with our Isle Waters Aurora Napkins to create this sophisticated coastal inspired look. Do we even need to mention this stunning bridal gown from JINZA Couture Bridal? Thank you Andy Seo Studio for capturing the magic!

Translucent, Geometric, Styled Shoot, California Wedding Day

“The ocean was our main source of inspiration when planning this Translucent Geometric inspired shoot captured by the talented Katrina Jayne Photography and Luma House Videography. When trying to decide on a venue there was no contest, BelAir Bay with its stunning ocean views was a must!

For the colors, we went with blue hues to complement the ocean but decided to modernize the typical beach themed wedding by bringing in geometric shapes and different metals.  We wanted to ensure that the ocean view was the area of focus so it was important that it didn’t become overpowered by the décor which is where the translucent idea came into play.

We started the day with a mock ceremony which was and intimate affair. The 16 ghost chairs from MTB Event Rentals tied in perfectly with the translucent theme. A simple modern arch was constructed from copper piping and from it hung a large piece of Plexiglas complete with stunning calligraphy by Kelly Patrice saying “My Love for you is deeper than the ocean”.  A blue and white hued garland filled with thistle, dusty miller, and dahlias by xo Bloom added the final touch to the stunning set up!

After the ceremony we moved over to the most romantic sweetheart table set up on the BelAir Bay Club Terrace. The timing couldn’t have been better. The sunset was the perfect backdrop for our newlyweds. The one of a kind furniture and tableware provided by Pretty Vintage Rentals was modernized with amazing linens from Luxe Linen, more unique florals by xo Bloom, and stationary by Lynn and Lou Paper co. After dinner of course comes dessert and Sweet Art Bake Shop didn’t disappoint with an amazing and unique cake. Glass Geometric Shapes with a blue and gold color scheme matched the table décor perfectly!

Once the sun went down our newlyweds met for a candlelit nightcap on the patio of the BelAir Bay club.  The set up by Pretty Vintage Rentals created a comfortable yet chic lounge area for them to wind down and snuggle up!”

This soft and romantic Luxe Launch tabletop is featured in the latest issue of Novelty Bride Magazine. We have an exclusive interview with floral designer, Jennifer Cole of Jennifer Cole Florals.

crown-weddings-jennifer-cole-florals-luxe-launch-brian-leahy-photography46

1) What was your inspiration behind your design?

JC: I wanted to do something different, and give the effect of the floral spilling from the chandelier onto the tabletop and onto the floor, with the cream and golden yellow of the floral, representing light.

2) Can you tell us about your design collaboration and process with your team?

JC: This collaboration with Luxe and the rental and glassware/ china company was such a pleasure. We had such freedom to choose whatever rental items we wanted! So fun! Crown weddings helped pull it all together!

3) What was the most unexpected element that you added?

JC: We added the amber chairs, because they were clear but still had the element of warmth and light…to go with our concept.

4) What is your favorite part of the tabletop?

JC: The flowers spilling from the floral tower onto the floor, and yellow. No one uses yellow. A Highly underrated color!

5) Is it exactly what you envisioned out to begin with?

JC: Design always changes a bit, that’s the freedom of not having a client to answer to. the strung orchids on the ceiling were a last minute change because you couldn’t see them from the backdrop…

6) How did being given a linen impact your process?

JC: The linen is fun to try to design around, and a challenge as well. It makes you think.

7) What is the reaction to the new LUXE Linen line?

JC: Gorgeous as always!!!

8) How did Vibiana as a space impact your design?

JC: Those ceilings and the lighting there were a huge bonus! You have to be dramatic in that space, or you would just be lost!

Midsummer Magic Wedding Featured in California Wedding Day, Midsummer Magic, Wedding, California Wedding Day

We are thrilled to see Laurie and Ronnie’s midsummer magic featured in California Wedding Day. Romantic and elegant, the terraced garden of the Chez de Les Fontaines private estate in Montecito perfectly captured the elegant garden wedding Laurie and Ronnie envisioned. After the couple sealed the deal with a kiss, a grand fountain began to bubble as guests toasted to the newlyweds.

Flowers in deep hues of pinks, reds and purples, beautifully complemented by light oranges, yellows and greens, created the loveliest color palette for the special day. Gold and white accents lent a clean and airy feel, while abundant greens added texture and contrast to the relaxed and unique affair.

Held in a stunning clear tent, Laura and Ronnie’s reception featured a variety of seating areas throughout the space, including a mix of stylish couches, poufs, tables and even an indoor draped gazebo. Various linens in shades of champagne, blush and deep merlot velvet enhanced the floral design. As the sun went down, the stars twinkled above the venue as light danced around the tent,creating warm and a romantic atmosphere.

Staying true to their vision of a floating-style reception, the couple opted for a sampling of food stations, including “The Cabo Hurricane” and “Football Game Day,” among others, named for happenings on their path to the altar.

In a stunning glass atrium dessert lovers found an array sweet treats. A dramatic seven-tiered cake trimmed in gold embellishments sat atop a bed of colorful flowers, accompanied by cookies, tarts, macarons and a custom doughnut wall.

This Old World Wedding Romance styled shoot is a prime example of what can be created when Old World wedding romance takes on a modern-day twist. It’s no mystery that we live in a world that is so fast-paced, we tend to take shortcuts (think DIY) to achieve desired results or create instant gratification moments. Many of today’s bridal visions are derived by creating an ambience that allows their guests to feel like life has slowed down. Giving them the opportunity to step into an enchanting, soft and elegant vibe to relax and yes – gasp – unplug! That is certainly part of the magic in this editorial coordinated and designed by Milk Events. Take a deep breath and experience the wonder, as a wedding day should, with this gorgeous gallery captured by Jon Cu Photo.

luxe linen, luxe launch, bottega louie, dessert

The LUXE launch is one of the wedding and event industry’s most anticipated events, serving as a trendsetting and networking function for top planners and designers. Now in its fourth year, The LUXE Launch is a tabletop showcase featuring the company’s latest linen collection. Each designer pairs up with a florist of their choice to create any tabletop and theme they dream up. This year, we interviewed Bottega Louie – a luxury pastry and design house that created a gorgeous spread of macarons and sweets for the occasion.

luxe linen, luxe launch, bottega louie, dessert

LUXE Linen: What was the inspiration behind your design?
Bottega Louie: We were inspired by airy, simplistic spaces decorated with tropical plants. We wanted graphic lines and clearly defined negative space to allow our pastries to shine.

luxe linen, luxe launch, bottega louie, dessert

LUXE Linen: Can you tell us about your design collaboration and process with your team?
Bottega Louie: We started with a mood board and inspiration images of floral arrangements. Once we narrowed down the look, we enlisted Leslie from Rebelle Fleur to develop the florals. We had an in-person meeting with her to discuss the shapes, containers, color palette, and flower species. After the centerpiece design was set, we regrouped to brainstorm how to echo the floral color palette throughout our pastries. We selected specific macaron hues to reflect the tropical species and pastries that would complement rather than distract.

luxe linen, luxe launch, bottega louie, dessert

LUXE Linen: What was the most unexpected element that you added?
Bottega Louie: The floral arrangements were the most unexpected element of our table, because we typically use a very different style of arrangements with our pastry tables.

luxe linen, luxe launch, bottega louie, dessert

LUXE Linen: What is your favorite part of the tabletop?
Bottega Louie: Our favorite part was absolutely the floral arrangements. They added the graphic touch we needed to frame our pastries.

luxe linen, luxe launch, bottega louie, dessert

LUXE Linen: How did being given a linen impact your process?
Bottega Louie: The linen we were provided with was selected to be within our brand colors, so our pastries could be the main focus of the table. Cindy chose a white linen for us with a lovely pleated texture that added dimension to our table.

luxe linen, luxe launch, bottega louie, dessert

LUXE Linen: What is your reaction to the new LUXE Linen line?
Bottega Louie: The new LUXE Linen line is a vibrant addition to the collection, and it truly showcases the personality of the company. Planners, designers, and brides will easily be able to select a linen from this line that will elevate their event.

luxe linen, luxe launch, bottega louie, dessert

LUXE Linen: How did Vibiana as a space impact your design?
Bottega Louie: Vibiana provided a beautiful backdrop for all the tables. The architectural details and dramatic ceilings added an elevated atmosphere for each table to shine within. While our design was not influenced by the space, we certainly feel that the venue heightened the experience of the event.
