So this is LOVE:: Chrissy + Glenn

Yes, this is LOVE. As we've wrapped this loveliness for darling Christine and Glenn, I tick off working in a mansion in our event venue bucket list. This gorgeous venue, the Grand Island Mansion, is a gem in the middle of nowhere, tucked in acres and acres of never ending farmlands and the charming Consomnes river with those beautiful drawbridges we had to cross just to get there.
When we first heard of the project, I kinda wished we were commissioned to do even just the cake, but as luck would have it, we were asked to work on styling the wedding. Though daunting, because I knew we wont have our crew with us, my excitement was enough to agree and send those proposals. The bride and I coordinated closely amidst the distance, we were in the Philippines, she was in Vegas. I picked the furniture's needed, she rented them. I picked the vases, the candle goblets, the smallest lovely detail, and she would send me confirmation that we have them after a few days.
We handcarried enough black shantung overlays and sequined runners from the Philippines to California which looked so beautiful under the intricate vintage vases with those lovely florals in between mercury candle holders. The head tables had white orchid showers, dramatic Black Forest calla lilies, more lovely white florals, and of course more votives that created a very glamorous set up following our palette of black, white, green, and gold.
Christine's bouquet was so beautiful. It had so many textures from the variety of florals we used. We had scabiousas, maiden hair ferns,Ecuadoreans, garden roses, star of bethlehems, black dahlias, Veronica's, chocolate cosmos! Her bouquet smelled sweet and delicious! Believe me.
