At Your Door Events

This stunning art deco wedding was featured on California Wedding Day and it has us swooning! You will love the way our Gold Manhattan, Gatsby table runner, and Taftah collections completed the look of this Art Deco Wedding.

BriAnne and Chris had their perfect wedding envisioned, it would have delicious food and of course dancing all night! The wedding designers, Sara Holland and Jenny Goodman of At Your Door Events expressed how the planning process felt like putting together a festival instead of a wedding. “They love hard and live it up to the fullest in everything they do,” says Holland. The San Diego native band, Liquid Blue, was the first act booked and they did not disappoint. They kept the dance floor at the Historic Union Station alive all night! Since the wedding took place at a historic venue, the wedding design complimented the building’s architecture. Their inspiration was an Art Deco Wedding meets Mission Revival design “by incorporating mixed metals, lucite, warm leather and rich wood married with luxurious linens and stunning florals.” Cocktail tables and guest tables were covered with Taftah linens as vibrant florals and candles decorated the top. Other tables were adorned with the Gatsby table runner, that balanced the rooms historic style. Meanwhile, the table of honor and dessert table was embellished with the Gold Manhattan to make the newlyweds stand out.

“With the band as the nucleus, the surrounding area included a full sushi bar, grilled cheese and soup station, Asian take-out buffet, an epic dessert station and a fleet of food trucks (including KogiIn-n-Out, and King Kone), all surrounded by an eclectic mix of seating options.”

This styled shoot designed by Sara Holland of At Your Door Events at the Ebell of Long Beach was full of unexpected combinations and a bold, beautiful design! As originally featured on Inside Weddings:

“For this shoot, I wanted to create inspiration for couples that don’t fit the model of what is ‘traditional,’” explains Sara Holland of At Your Door Events. “I love that our couple, Geneva and Jen, have tattoos and fashion-forward hairstyles… but most importantly I love that they have a deep connection to each other and represent so much of what is new and exciting in our wedding industry.”

Sara selected the historic Ebell of Long Beach as the canvas for her study of the unexpected. When touring the popular venue, she noticed the beautifully varied tiles of the courtyard floor. A black-and-white sample with geometric shapes caught her eye and provided the foundation for the celebration’s palette with additional touches of red and gold. The pattern was also reflected in several details. Lastly, the edgy “Ride or Die” theme was carried out from the stationery to the dessert treats. The invitation suite encompassed all these elements and offered a glimpse of the forthcoming event.

The intimate ceremony was held in the grand ballroom that boasts lofty ceilings, as well as hand-stenciled beams and crown molding. Geneva was clad in a haute ebony gown with a cowl back and chapel train covered in appliqués and accented with beading and sequins. Her black diamond pendant necklace echoed her round stone engagement ring. She held a bold, earthy bouquet of crimson blooms – including peonies and orchids – and greenery. Jen was elegantly attired in an ivory blazer with leather lapels and cropped pants. The ruby pendant around her neck lent a dash of color, while the custom-made double ring of black gold and row of rubies on her right hand added a “cool factor.”

The couple exchanged vows in front of an exquisitely carved fireplace draped with foliage. A 24-foot-tall mirror on the wall above reflected the romantic scene. Clusters of candles in gilded vessels glowed at their feet and a crystal chandelier encased in a spherical gilded frame was suspended overhead.

The festivities moved to the adjacent courtyard, where natural light streamed through the skylight. Geometric-shaped place cards – a motif also repeated in menus – were arranged on a marble-topped vintage table. With a verdant wall and fountain as a backdrop, an ornate settee was paired with the sweetheart table adorned with leafy garlands, verdure, and crimson blooms in matte black and gilded vases. A rouge cymbidium orchid was the finishing touch to each stunning place setting composed of an ornate ebony charger, china with a ruby floral pattern, and a garnet glass plate.

A rich variety of desserts and wedding cake were displayed on a gilded Art-Deco stand. The delectable pastries included cake pops with beautiful sugar flower accents, cupcakes, chocolate cake pops dusted with gold, geometric and onyx jeweled treats, and frosted cookies bearing either the tile design or the “Ride or Die” motto. Gilded geometric shapes cascaded along the layers of the bridal confection, which donned different styles: the tile pattern, matte ebony, and white with gold brush strokes.

As originally featured on Love Luxe Life:

The Ebell of Long Beach is one of Southern California’s most beautiful historic venues. Built by the philanthropic Ebell sisters in 1924, the Ebell with it’s Churrigueresque style architecture has long been a historic landmark of Long Beach and a popular event and wedding destination in Southern California. Owner Alan Dunn of Carondelet House and Tres LA Catering has brought fresh style and sophistication to the exquisite landmark building. The Ebell’s twenty-five thousand square feet of gorgeous event space has been reimagined into a bright, functional new version of it’s already stunning self. There are endless possibilities in the fully furnished, stately rooms of the historic property that include a skylit Courtyard, a beautifully furnished Library Room, and a exquisite Grand Ballroom. Meticulous restoration and renovations have been completed in every room of the building.

What greater idea than to throw a party for the launch of the re-imagined historic venue! Wedding & Event Industry Professionals gathered together for a chic get together to see what the space has to offer. White washed, wood-beamed vaulted ceilings, crystal pendant lights, exposed brick walls, and ornate architectural elements make this venue truly one of a kind, and the perfect location to host a classy event. Each room is compromised of different details such as hard wood floors, luxurious fireplaces, and sparkling chandeliers, while still remaining cohesive with the historic landmark’s original designs.

Old world meets New Ebell of Long Beach…and we love how the party tied in elements of both. Vintage inspired bar and bar backs with cut glass goblets mixed with fun, fresh, and bold garden roses in shades of vibrant pink and deep red. New everything, JBL Professional sound system with speakers and wireless internet throughout, and Bridal Suite with soft lighting and new furniture. For a sweet ending, guests feasted on decadent vanilla cake lollipops, macarons and banana pudding from Tres LA Catering. And for those that favor salt, another mini lobster roll please.
