There are times when you can play as a designer and truly let go of the conventional ways of doing things. This wedding was one of my play times. I lost myself in inspiration and joy as I worked with Taleen to create one of the most cutting edge wedding designs in the Bay Area.
Taleen’s wedding was romantic and stylish. During the consultation, she told me her colors and I was in love. The fresh combination of champaign, gold and black with tones of ivory was unique and sophisticated. She and her mother have impeccable taste. My job was to work with the style and recommend linens and design flowers that fit into her style. She designed her invitations with tone on tone champaign damask, black scroll-work, and amber jewels. With that in mind, I worked the room to fit it.
Our favorite silver sculptural trees and gold lion stands were painted black. These are both items that we have created for our clients. I love how they can be painted to completely change their style. Fresh combo roses, quicksand roses, sahara roses and ivory majelica spray roses repeated throughout the room clustered together in trees or bunched together in a low floral. This gave highlights and lowlights of color to create interest against the champaign linens and beige walls. Imported amber cut crystals were strung and placed in the trees that picked up light and brought sophistication. We worked closely with Taleen to provide new items and to incorporate her resources. I thoroughly enjoyed the process. A heavy candle treatment was designed on every table. This really brought warmth to the room mixed with the lighting.
We love Casa Real because it is a beautiful space that lends itself to so many design styles. This was one of my favorite looks at that venue. It was made to have splashes of black! We worked with a wonderful team that truely brought her vision to life. I would still have to give Event Design to Taleen. She had the vision for her space and worked to put the glassware, linens and lighting together. I did give lots of recommendations, but she is truly gifted. I am proud of her as she is now starting her own business as a wedding designer. I hope to work with her more in the future. I love being around talent!
