Christine and David’s rock n roll wedding ceremony and reception was at the ever-classic Cicada Club in Downtown Los Angeles (right near Pershing square, in the thick of it all). It’s a venue reminiscent of the roaring 20’s, with a towering ballroom laced in gold and brown tones of art deco. The ballroom feels more like New York than Los Angeles which is why I love it!
Brian wanted to created lush, organic, florals that were robust, full, and overflowing. So we dove straight into the spring flowers and piled on the lilacs, sweet peas, ranunculus, jasmine vine, fritilia,tulips and hellebores. God they were so sweet and fragrant and reminded me of days working on the flower farm. I also got to team with Laura from Dish Wish who rocked the table top settings.
The cool thing about this wedding was that we were able to source all the flowers for this wedding right here in Los Angeles by working closely with the America Grown Flower association and with Mellano Farms. While the couple did not make that priority in choosing to work with us I was able to educate them on where all the flowers came from, the farmers story, and help connect them to the source of the flowers for the wedding day. It was great to work with a couple that loved being part of the american grown flower movement.
And thank YOUR BASH WEDDINGS for coordinating such a perfect and flawless wedding day!! It was such a pleasure and we look forward to working with your team again. I also want to thank Richard (manager at Cicada) and his team for being so sweet, friendly, and helpful. We really can’t do it without an amazing vendor team!
Celadon Studios is a modern floral studio + event space in the center of L.A. Culver City’s Art District. Our venue provides a blank canvas for a wide variety of creative applications. Equipped with a full spectrum of amenities, Celadon Studios is ideal for anyone seeking to host an event in a versatile urban sanctuary.
There’s more to designing a floral studio than displaying flowers and plants throughout your lobby. You must create an inviting space that shows off your work without seeming cluttered. The room should showcase the non-floral items, such as specialty containers, ribbons, etc Set up the room so that it’s easy to redecorate, as you should change it often to reflect each season. Include seating and a designated chill zone for clients convenience.
We are proud of the space as it took a lot of creatives to help us get here, Kelly, Esau, Alyssa, and Jackson!

We do so many events in a year so when a planner friend calls to collaborate on a shoot I almost always say yes as long as we can use leftovers. This collaboration was inspired by Alex from Sterling Engagements and was so on point with what we were doing earlier in the week I had to say yes! Hot pink everything, green garlands, and lots and lots of gorgeous peonies. Love this idea of an over the top cake station and the hanging bottles and florals make the whole setting so sweet and totally Vineyard Glam! Love it and thanks for the feature CWD and shot by Brian Leahy!
