30 Planes, 22 Events and 2 Grateful Hearts

30 Planes, 22 Events and 2 Grateful Hearts

Hello, In 2018 we planned and designed 22 events which required boarding 30 airplanes to travel around the US and abroad. These events included local and destination weddings, corporate parties, wellness retreats and a series of commercial shoots for spectacular resorts. Some events were large and wild, some were small and intimate. We loved them all, and  are so proud to have been published countless times throughout the year, including magazine covers for our destination weddings. Several weddings we designed were nominated for or won Best Wedding of the year on national wedding blogs....

What’s So Cool About Tulum?

What’s So Cool About Tulum?

Hello, We first fell in love with Tulum during a vacation in 2013.  At that time, nobody we knew here on the West Coast had even heard of it.  We were so excited to talk about Tulum, but when we said the name to people, most just stared back at us.  Common responses were: “Is it near Cabo?” or “I went to Mazatlan for Spring Break” and sadly, “it’s in Mexico? No thanks.”  Fortunately Instagram soon delivered Tulum’s message in the best way possible, with pictures of beautiful people in swimsuits having sexy fun times.   That’s a great argument for a honeymoon, but weddings were largely...

Destination: Montauk

Destination: Montauk

We were thrilled when Chelsea + Peter chose Montauk as their wedding location. Just over 100 miles east of Midtown Manhattan, Montauk proved to be a trendy destination with it's fashion forward yet youthful vibe. Our design took place at Sole East, a 1920s historical landmark building perfectly located with walking distance to the beach and downtown. More importantly, Sole East provided a breathtaking location for the main event with over 2 acres of landscaped gardens. Chelsea and Peter's invitation suite was chic + simple. We selected a soft palette and a few modern touches that set the...

Riviera Maya Pastel Spring Wedding

Riviera Maya Pastel Spring Wedding

When we first visited Banyan Tree Mayakoba, it felt like a dream. So a year later, when we were given the opportunity to create this special shoot for the property, it truly felt like a dream come true. Our attraction to Banyan Tree is how the property balances nature with luxury in the most effortless way; it is the ideal place for a destination wedding. Inspired by the property’s zen-like quality, we embarked on the design journey by focusing on the natural setting of the Riviera Maya. The color palette was derived from the soft white sands, pastel skies, and lush mangroves. We knew it...

Luxurious + Botanical Wedding Inspiration in Riviera Maya, Mexico

When we first laid eyes on Banyan Tree Mayakoba we knew it was something different. It had a special Zen like quality, not just at the spa (which is otherworldly, by the way) but in every inch of the property, which seems to be brimming with good Karma. When we had the opportunity to design this beautiful day we felt especially blessed by the universe. Given the natural beauty in Riviera Maya, we set out to strike the same balance between nature and luxury that Banyan Tree does so effortlessly. We started by calling Tec Petaja. His work is redefining photography and his approach to...

A Magical + Moody Harry Potter Wedding on Martha Stewart Weddings

A Magical + Moody Harry Potter Wedding on Martha Stewart Weddings

Expecto Patronum! With a little design magic we brought the fictional Harry Potter tale to life.  But for us it wasn’t as easy as waving a wand. In fact the planning process brought waves doubt and questions that kept us up at night. As designers we are accustomed to taking on challenges, so when Cindy and Matthew explained that they wanted the ultimate Harry Potter wedding, we were thrilled yet admittedly terrified.  The idea was so romantic, but the obstacles were significant.   First, our darling bride and groom were the most dedicated Harry Potter fans, so the experience had to feel...

Fall Italian Themed Dinner Party

Fall Italian Themed Dinner Party

We have had the pleasure of designing several retreats for Toyota at the luxurious Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach. This round, our inspiration took form of Old World Italy, specifically that of a small Italian street market. We tied in several focal points like a vintage aqua blue Vespa, rustic merchant cart and authentic hanging food scales. These are pieces one would undoubtedly come across when perusing the streets of a local villa. Guests mingled in the courtyard, making their way to one continuous row of barn-wood farm tables, and dined in true family style fashion. We designed...
