My Funny Valentine

pink weddings, hot pink weddings

Yes, I know. Many of us are jaded by the red and pink cut-out, heart shaped-everything holiday. In resent years someone tried to pass off  Valentine’s as the official  “Hallmark” holiday which almost worked. Yet, there are those who still have the love bug and February is a month filled with pink and red inspired ideas floating in their minds. I am one of those hopelessly romantics who loves love and am truly driven and inspired by it daily. February is not only a great time to get married, it opens amazing color palettes and design ideas for weddings. Get Inspired. Be Fabulous. Be In Love. Happy Valentine’s Day

Perfection: Pink & Chocolate

valentines day

I checked the calendar last night and realized, OMG! Valentine’s Day is only two weeks away!

Although this holiday always seems to sneak up on me, I do love the frilly romance and oh ya. The chocolate that defines it. So, let the color inspiration, crafting ideas and indulgent dessert recipes begin!

Thanks to Camile Styles, we have an amazing ispiration board to start off some fun V-Day ideas.”Today’s board is more about rich, dark chocolate than sugary candy hearts; a lush bunch of peonies on the table for a sophisticated candlelit dinner at home. I love the contrast of girly pink set against a moody dark background…rather sexy, no? Stay tuned for lots more Valentine’s planning ideas over the next couple of weeks.” Be Insprired. Stay Fabulous.

Peter & Gladys – {A Romantic Wine Country Wedding}

When I first met Peter & Gladys to discuss their wedding plans, one thing I knew for sure. It was going to be a truly romantic wedding. After visiting multiple venues in the Los Angeles area, we took a short road trip to Temecula and found the perfect place. Walking into Mount Palomar, you immediatly get the comfortable inviting old-world feel of the Tuscan villa.  Mount Palomar offered romance and elegance and was located on a hilltop giving guests a panoramic view of Temecula Valley. It was a perfect place for the perfect day. PHOTOGRAPHY: Signature Exposure

Beautiful hues of light and dark pink flowers were selected with accents of cream and gold. Floral design by Myra of  Celebrate Flowers

Event Pros LA designed a tent which was draped with white chiffon fabric and large chandeliers hanging overheard and crystal candelabras as part of the centerpiece for a truly magnificent look.
