Real Wedding: A Luxurious Purple & Gold Evening at Pelican Hill

Lauren and Jacob’s wedding at Pelican Hill is definitely one of the highlights of 2015 for the SY & Co. team. The design was multi-faceted, utilizing mirrored tabletops, glimmering chandeliers, and candlelight to complement the luxurious gold and purple color palette. Lauren and Jacob’s ceremony took advantage of Pelican Hill’s beautiful rotunda. We wrapped the front pillars of the structure in a matching almond chiffon that flowed majestically in the breezy Newport air. The aisle treatment was simple yet beautiful, as we formed one solid strip of rose petals rather than whimsically scattering. Next to the couple as they said their vows were large mirrored columns with clear glass reflection vases and large, luscious purple and red floral arrangements. The guests were treated to a luxurious seating design as we alternated rows with white lounge furniture and clear ghost chairs. To accent, we placed rich white furs on every few seats! We loved this unique seating style. As guests enjoyed their cocktail hour, we put the finishing touches on the reception! This beautiful design consisted of …


Real Wedding: Ethnic Ceremony with a Modern Twist

In San Diego, California, Ravi and Anar said their vows underneath a beautiful May sky. The wedding beautifully combined a new and organic design while continuing and paying homage to ethnic tradition. Guests were seated underneath almond chiffon draping with mahogany chiavari chairs to match. Along the aisle we scattered colorful rose petals matching the florals used in the mandap. The stage, painted in a light cream color with decorative panels at the front, sat undernead a preexisting covered area. We of course wanted to add more to this preexisting structure and so we used florals that had a very organic feel. This allowed for our florals to intertwine and flow nicely with the greenery that was already on the structure. Garland cascaded down the sides in an asymmetrical fashion with florals consisted of numerous garden roses, spray roses, orchids, and more. Additionally, we strung floral droplets with crystal accents above the couple’s heads.   Personal florals for this ceremony were absolutely beautiful. Ravi’s bouquet was made up of similar florals to that of the mandap …


Real Wedding: Romantic Outdoor Wedding at Hummingbird Nest Ranch

Neil and Ankita’s wedding took place at one of our favorite venues ever- the beautiful Hummingbird Nest Ranch. Located in the Santa Susanna Mountains, just north of Los Angeles, CA, this venue always brings out the best in our designs! The ceremony featured a vibrant color scheme with deep, dark wooden undertones. The olive trees on the Lake Lawn here were illuminated with sunlight and casted a lovely shade over the entire ceremony- trees are wonderful in an outdoor venue as they shielded the guests from some of the wonderful Southern California heat we deal with. Thank you to Mili Shah of Planning Elegance for all of her hard work in coordinating this wedding! It was a beauty! Neil and Ankita were married underneath one of our custom wooden canopy structures with draped orange chiffon. Clusters of florals tied back the draping at each post in addition to one large design that sat perched above the couple. Two of our beautiful Ellies flanked the entrance to the aisle. They featured vibrant fuchsia and green mums with ornately adorned …
