PRINCESS CATHERINE’S WEDDING DAY LOOKS 04.30.11

The lace applique for the gown’s bodice and skirt was handmade by the Royal School of Needlework, based at Hampton Court Palace. It was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.

The bride’s gown featured individual flowers hand-cut from lace and hand-engineered onto ivory silk tulle to create an organic design with rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock motifs.

The bride wore a translucent veil, apparently in spite of a tradition for a royal bride to leave her face uncovered in order to show she is not an impostor.

The wedding gown was classic-looking, in silk gazar with long, intricate Chantilly lace sleeves and a V-shaped neckline.

Catherine’s dress is likely to be a force of pop culture for years to come, influencing fashion trends and reinforcing the sociological significance of the white wedding gown.

The bride slipped into her second wedding dress — also designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen — to attend an evening reception hosted by her new father-in-law, the Prince of Wales. The dress is a white satin strapless gown with a circle skirt and diamente detailing around the waist.
Catherine demonstrated that she was more than fit to become a princess with her amazing choices. She looked stunning and we believe that choosing the house of McQueen shows great homage payed by her to a great fashion icon and has placed her in the same iconic status.

JENNIFER & JOSH 04.15.11

Preppy & Posh Beach Wedding

Jennifer and Josh Judman’s wedding included everything I adore – -a bright sunny day at the Hotel Del Coronado, stunning seaside ceremony featuring florals by Kathy Wright and Co. and pretty details at every turn for the guests to delight in.

Their wedding was designed by Susanne Duffy of Crown Weddings and included all the special touches Susanne brings to every event.  Using a palette of navy blue, crisp white, magenta and emerald green, the Hotel Del was transformed into a preppy paradise reminiscent of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel.

Simply Posh Design worked with the couple’s custom monogram and incorporated it into all their reception stationery to include bejeweled program booklets, place cards, menus and table signs.   In addition, we carried  their monogram from the printed page onto the dance floor for a special finishing touch.

Thanks to Luna Photo for capturing their day.

Congratulations Jennifer and Josh!

GRAHAM & EVER ~ DESTINATION: COSTA RICA 03.18.11
Graham & Ever decided that their dreams would come to life in beautiful and enchanting Santa Teresa, Costa Rica where the waves are epic for surfing and the relaxed beach atmosphere is ideal for unforgettable wedding celebrations.
Casa Capitan which boasts the largest and most extravagant house in Santa Teresa, and that’s an understatement, makes it the most amazing venue for quaint weddings of 50 guests or less.
The ceremony took place on the beach at sunset, followed by the wedding reception which was a short stroll up the sandy path through the palms to the house and nestled by the infinity pool.
The hanging lights and votives mixed perfectly with the surrounding palm fronds and myriad of strategically arranged Cali lily, orchid, and hydrangea arrangements, all done in the corresponding colors of white and green.

In lieu of wedding favors, guests signed custom made coasters and dropped the coaster into a bowl for the charity of their choice, including a local school, an environmental cause, and an animal shelter. {Which by the way, is just a magnificent idea!}

Congratulations to Graham & Ever, may they have a long and joyous life journey together!!
