“Let’s just start out by exclaiming that this stunning Bel Air Bay Club luxury wedding is just peachy! Literally. When a bride and groom’s inspiration for décor is all about the juicy goodness of this hue and has Mark’s Garden behind the floral and Rikki Ladenheim on point for planning you know to expect the actual fruit to come into play. Nothing is off limits with these two fab California vendors on the scene.
Ashley and Michael are a spirited couple, known amongst their friends and family for their playful natures. So, when it came down to what they envisioned for their wedding day, they not only wanted an elegant wedding but one that allowed their personalities to radiate through. Cue the peachiness without the cheesiness. The color and the fruit were used throughout the ceremony and reception, but seamlessly integrated with a plethora of color and varying floral too. Ashley knew how she wanted the ballroom tablescapes to work with a flowy feel and small bundles of flowers over large centerpieces. The garden was beautifully lit up with Lampadaire exterieur exterior lighting which set the tone. However, when it came to the chuppah nothing resonated with her on Pinterest where she sought inspiration. Lucky for her, this is where Mark’s Garden and Rikki Ladenheim shine! Just allowing these dream teams to let their creative juices go and trust in their talent. In fact, Ashley let go of the control so much that she did not even know what the chuppah would look like until she walked down the aisle. While getting ready, she heard the whispers of “oohs and ahhhs” and she confesses she did see the truckloads of flowers being unloaded, but had no idea what to expect. She claims that the chuppah was beyond anything she could have imagined.” – via Strictly Weddings
