A Perfect Day!

I, like so many people, woke up in early (and I mean EARLY) on the morning of April 29th to watch the Royal Wedding. The moment pictured below alone was well worth any sluggishness I may feel today! Congratulations William and Catherine! Such an amazingly beautiful day! :)

Destination Wedding Invitations!

I LOVE these destination wedding invitations from Champagne Sunday. As a wedding coordinator, I get a lot of requests for unique wedding invitations and these definitely fit the bill. In fact, Champagne Sunday has several unique invitations options in their Etsy shop including an invitation that resembles a boarding pass and another that looks like a restaurant menu for the foodie’s out there :)

Enjoy!

All That Glitters!

By Christy, the Orange Blossom Design Specialist

Although I don’t consider myself the “girly girl”, I can’t help but LOVE the feminine and glamorous combination of glittery golds, pale pinks and dusty rose. These pinks bring a soft and romantic feel to any occasion while gold adds the perfect touch of sophistication. I hope you all enjoy this palette as much as I do! Happy Monday, everyone!

Monday Morning Inspiration: World of Color

By Christy, the Orange Blossom Design Specialist

Who says you can only choose two wedding colors? Here at Orange Blossom Special Events, WE LOVE COLOR – and the more, the merrier (well…sometimes)! This week’s colorful inspiration board is inspired by the new nighttime spectacular, World of Color, at Disney California Adventure Park. The World of Color show “weaves water, color, fire and light into a kaleidoscope of fantasy and imagination” – as with all things Disney, who wouldn’t be inspired?

Have a happy and INSPIRED Monday!

Monday Morning Inspiration: ROLL OUT THE RED CARPET

By Christy, the Orange Blossom Design Specialist!

Red is the color of love and the perfect pop of color to add to your Spring wedding. In this week’s inspiration board, we made red the main focus by pairing it with subtle creams and white. You can also pair red with blue – both navy and sky work well. Or try pairing it with oranges and pinks for a more whimsy feel.

Happy Monday, everyone!

Anne & Jason, Pasadena Wedding

Anne and Jason were married on what turned out to be a beautiful day in February. When we all fell asleep in the night before the wedding it was pouring; however, when we woke up on that Saturday morning, the sky was clear and it was absolutely gorgeous. I knew immediately that it was going to be a good day!

Thank you Zenia Photography for covering the day so perfectly! More pictures from the event can be found on Zenia’s blog by clicking here. Also, thank you to Lien from the Daily Blossom Florist for creating some amazing bouquets and centerpieces and East Gourmet Seafood for providing a great receiption venue with mouthwatering food! Thank you everyone!!
