Row is located in the heart of DTLA the mixed-use Row project aims to breathe new life into a six-building, two-million-square-foot portfolio in downtown Los Angeles acquired by New York-based real estate investment firm Atlas Capital. Jackie from No Subject has a thing for real estate development properties and they asked NS to design two exclusive evenings with top brokers in LA. So we jumped on board for the fun and added pops of life, color, and floral accents for the event. I am still dying over the wall decor, check out those clocks and hanging terrariums!
Hot off the press is the new issue of the Knot with a 4 page spread of my favorite couple Mia and Jake’s Modern NYC Studio 450 wedding. The magazine hit the stands this week so go get yourself a copy and dive right in with a glass of rose and get ready for a dreamy love story.
So excited to share this wedding we helped design at Ojai Valley Inn with Amber Events. Check out the interview that was shared on Grey Likes!
Lindsey and Bobby’s OJAI VALLEY INN & SPA wedding location was unique to their story because they said their “I Dos” under the exact same tree under which they became engaged. Coordinated by AMBER EVENTS with some really beautiful florals and greens by CELADON & CELERY, the day was elegant and relaxed. We especially love the gorgeous french provincial chairs from ARCHIVE VINTAGE RENTALS. Thankfully MIKI & SONJA PHOTOGRAPHY were on hand to capture the lovely rose lighting and
What made the wedding special and unique?
Not many couples can say they were married in the exact same spot where they got engaged. But in our love story, we can. To stand under the same tree where he got down on one knee was something truly unique and extra special. I think all the guests could feel that love during our ceremony. It’s such a magical spot and we were so happy our friends and family could share that joyous moment with us.
What were some touches added to make it personal?
Everyone knows I love love love candles. I really wanted to create a romantic vibe in the ballroom that people could feel as soon as they entered the room. The Ojai Valley Inn exudes romance with all the Spanish accents and I really wanted to keep that theme while incorporating my love for candles. By adding mirrored tables to reflect the candlelight and using only white flowers my vision came to life and exceeded all my expectations. Amber Events and the help from my planner, Nina Luna, we were able to keep my style the whole way through without interfering with the natural beauty of the hotel. It really was one of the most romantic settings I have ever seen.
What was the most memorable part of the day?
Hands down the most memorable moment of the day was the first look that took place before the ceremony. Bobby and I had been separated all day and I could hardly wait for him to see me in my dress. He had no idea what it looked like and I had been anxiously anticipating this moment all morning. He was waiting for me on the gorgeous golf course when I sneaked up behind him. When he turned around and saw me for the first time my heart simply melted. That moment will be etched in my heart forever.
