Michelle & Kevin – The Wedding!

Talk about an international affair!  Michelle and Kevin had friends and family fly in from all over the world for an outdoor summer wedding at the beautiful Hummingbird Nest Ranch. The couple chose a clean and classic color palette with white, gold and black as their primary colors. Peony red mainly came into play with the lush floral from Honey and Poppies.

We had the great honor of working with Michelle’s sister the previous year on their #weekendbash so we knew Michelle and Kevin’s wedding was going to be a great party! The couple wanted to make sure the bar was the focal point so they had a light up sign reading the word “DRINKS” at the bar. The CCL team built a custom escort card installation reading a famous line from Blake Shelton’s song — “You’ll be my glass of wine and I’ll be your shot of whiskey.” Custom whiskey and wine glasses etched with the couple’s logo were displayed on gold shelves in front of the installation.

At the guest message station, guests gave their input on coming up with names for the couple’s future children by incorporating their last name “Wang.” They were then invited into the cobblestone courtyard lit with market lights for live music, dinner and dancing! The phrase “Shut up and Dance” set the mood on the dance floor. Guests danced the night away on the dance floor with a vinyl reading “Shut Up and Dance” to a live band also performing “Shut up and Dance.”

It was a fun affair that included spontaneous, but heartfelt speeches, custom ice cream cookie sandwiches and lots of light up swag for the guests to wear and dance the night away!

Monica & Sean – The Wedding!

An outdoor venue, twinkling lights, the perfect weather and an abundant love surrounding the couple, more than enough to warm our hearts — what more could you possibly ask for? Monica and Sean’s June 2015 wedding at Saddlerock Ranch was simply beautiful. The bride chose her color palette to be neutral shades of ivory, cream, nude and gold with pops of magenta. Green Leaf Designs did not fail to deliver this color ratio perfectly!

The ceremony took place under a lush archway with greenery and pops of beautiful and bold magenta with a large giraffe overseeing the ceremony from the side (did you know that Stanley the Giraffe from Hangover II is housed at the venue?). Guests noshed on appetizers from Whoa Nelly Catering and sipped wine from Saddlerock’s very own winery. The couple’s escort cards were kraft paper journals stamped with the couple’s favorite phrase on the first page of every journal. The journals were placed on a custom dark-wood stained wall and each held an escort card and a sprig of greenery wrapped in gold twine.

Guests dined beneath the twinkling lights hanging from the trees and danced to a live band before enjoying hot churros and freshly scooped ice cream! It was certainly a memorable affair with great company and amazing food.

Monica and Sean, seeing how much love both your families have for you absolutely melted my heart. It truly looks like you guys are one big family all along. Thank you for allowing CCL to be a part of the magic and witness your special day. Love you both!

Joann & Eric – The Wedding!

On August 8. 2015, we had the great pleasure of working with Joann, a bride with a smile that lights up the room and Eric, a groom with a charismatic heart and a love for the Los Angeles Dodgers. The wedding took place at 440 Seaton in Downtown Los Angeles. We were enthused to take on the challenge to transform the large warehouse space to create an intimate feel for 300 guests. With the help of our amazing vendors, warm lighting, plenty of draping and tons of fun detail, Joann and Eric’s wedding was one for the books!

The couple’s wedding was also featured recently on Style Me Pretty California! Check it out right HERE.

The couple’s palette was simple with neutral shades of ivory and cream, touches of gold and pops of deep red. Red was mainly used in the beautifully arranged floral and the absolutely dreamy arch by Emblem Floral Design. Guests entered the main room from the streets and were welcomed by a wall with a phrase that began their journey for the evening “The Best is Yet to Come.”

Once the couple said their “I dos,” guests were ushered into two areas in the cocktail reception to munch on appetizers from Hungry Bear Catering and sip non-stop at the open bar from Sunseris. The couple also decided to partake in a Korean bowing ceremony during cocktail hour. Valentina Glidden took some of the most stunning photos of this traditional Korean ceremony I have ever seen! We absolutely love when couples embrace their culture and honor their parents in this simple, but absolutely sweet ceremony.

The couple’s love for the DODGERS was unforgettable and was infused into a custom escort installation with “baseball tickets” placed on plexi trays filled with peanuts, cracker jacks, baseballs and a phrase the couple chose by the ever-so-famous Yogi Berra.

A live band welcomed the guests as they entered the reception hall filled with long family-style reception tables for a memorable dinner that many guests have said was one of the best meals at a wedding they’ve had. After dinner,  a dessert room was set-up with two of the couple’s favorite sweets from Disneyland — beignets and dole whip! It was only fitting for us to create a special vinyl for the floor reading “Watch Me Whip” and “Watch Me Nae Nae.” The vinyls were placed on the floor with foot prints that copied the dance moves from once station to the other.

Joann and Eric, working with you two is such a blessing. I can’t even begin to put into words how much fun I had with your wedding and the two of you. Being around the two of you is always filled with so much laughter and joy! I will never forget Joann’s happy dance at the food tasting. Love you both to pieces!

Eunice & Michael – The Wedding!

We’re always a fan of fun, quirky and colorful details so when a couple allows us to do what we do best by incorporating such details into a wedding, we’re on it faster than you can say “I DO!”

Eunice and Michael’s May 2015 wedding was such a treat for us to design and plan. The palette of colors marigold, poppy and deep teal was such a fun wheel of colors to work with. The couple also requested to incorporate tid bits of their nicknames they are known by into the wedding– robot and dino! The groom, a talented graphic designer, designed all the paper goods with the most adorable collection of symbols, icons and emojis based on the things the couple loves. We were able to tie in these exciting details throughout the wedding to create one awesome wedding and dance party!

Have you ever asked your bartender for a hug or a high five? Eunice and Michael’s guests sure have! The specialty drinks at the bar were named “Hug” and “High Five” so the question of the night was “Can I get a hug/high five?”  Even the drink orders were fun to hear and even more exciting when the bartenders actually gave the guests a high five.

An outdoor reception took place at the Unique Space LA with long tables and centerpieces with maiden hair fern plants, centerpieces with lots of greenery and protea, painted wood blocks with succulents and (the best part) painted dinosaurs! Eunice and Michael’s wedding had the perfect colors and personality that epitomized “fun!”

Thank you so much, Eunice and Michael, for allowing us to be a part of your creative journey with you! It was so humbling to work with a couple with such a strong love for each other, family and church. You guys are seriously dino-mite! Looking forward to our dinner dates and future escape room shenanigans!

Tiffany & Bobby – The Wedding!

A wedding filled with so much personality, details and absolute love from friends and family are definitely characteristics of a wedding you know will be amazing! Tiffany and Bobby, residents of New York, had planned for a Spring wedding with a color palette fit for the season with peach, coral, dusty blue, ivory and shades of blush pink.

The bride, being a designer herself, hand drew and created the invitation and all the stationery pieces in their wedding. It was such a special touch to the wedding knowing the first item that the guest saw were created by the bride. Her illustration of beautiful flower blooms were carried throughout the wedding details from the menus, programs and table numbers. The groom’s love for beer pong were not forgotten, as custom painted beer pong tables with the design were made for guests to play a game of speed beer pong during cocktail hour.

Being that Tiffany and Bobby were from New York and knowing just how special New York was to the couple, we knew we just had to incorporate the idea of New York into their big day. It was only appropriate that we made their outdoor cocktail hour into a nod to their love for the city. A popcorn vendor was set-up serving fresh popcorn to guests. A large escort installation was created with a hand illustrated map of all the couple’s favorite landmarks. Escort cards were then attached that led guests to tables that were also named after the landmarks.

Following the cocktail hour, guests entered a rustic dining hall to finish off their evening with dinner and lots of drinking and dancing. A rather extensive dessert station was set-up and displayed on a large wooden hutch from Found Rentals’s beautiful collection. It was such an amazing evening for an even more amazing couple and all their wedding guests.

Tiff and Bobby, we had  so much fun working with the two of you! Can’t believe how time just flew by during all the planning! We’re going to miss you both so much and can’t wait to see you both again soon (in NY?)! We loved every moment working with you and seeing all the beautiful details you put into your wedding design. You have a beautiful group of friends and such a loving family. WE LOVE YOU!
