This “Dickens of a Dinner” event was inspired by the classic, “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens. There were so many details that we just loved about this event at the astounding New York Library. From the timeless red rose arrangements and green garland runners accompanied by antiqued books and pine cones to the custom 5ft marquee letters. This party is one that even Ebenezer Scrooge would have adored! Thank you, Jayd Jackson for capturing this amazing night.
When Michelle and I met we were working a wedding in 2011 and in an instant became the best of girlfriends. We then moved on to co-producing dozens of events and weddings together so when she told me she was engaged and wanted me design her wedding I was over the moon and wanted to make sure the style and details really reflected her personality, her kindness, and her love for life. Since we bonded over flowers , I wanted to make sure her flowers were really special and so I hand pick her flowers from 2 farms one in CA and the other in VA: Dahlias, roses, clematis, amaryllis, chocolate cosmos.
We did not import a single flower or accent for this wedding by using only local farmers, buying only from smaller business. Thank you Rent Patina for having the most insanely curated inventory, I love playing with your product. Thank you CC rentals for the trucks, Rose Story Farm who sent us the most gorgeous and breath taking roses. Also a huge shout out to my farm friends at Lynn Vale Studios for all the other product.
Come take a look at all the yummy and gorgeous photos and swoon over all the details that we put into this wedding for my friend Michelle.
These words are borrowed from Kathleen and Robert’s Blog. Loved how accurately they described the sweet sweet Michelle.
The morning of Michelle and Steve’s wedding, some of their friends were jokingly placing bets on just how many times Michelle would cry that day. There was little doubt that she would, of course, and whatever the highest estimate was – Steve guessed the actual number would be higher. Not because Michelle’s more emotional than anyone else, but because she is so completely genuine. When she’s feeling something, she feels it fully. And if you spend just a few minutes with her family, you can see that is a family trait. This is a family without artifice. If anyone was going to cry more happy tears than Michelle, it was probably going to be her parents. Or maybe her grandparents. Or her sister or brother. And, in truth, Rob and I cried some happy tears for Michelle and Steve too. Really, I think you would have to be made of stone to not tear up at their wedding.

Style swept through Westfield Topanga at “Cocktails and Couture,” an evening of fashion presented by Westfield, Who What Wear, and Los Angeles Confidential on November 13, 2014. From trend presentations courtesy of Neiman Marcus and celebrity stylist Monica Rose to the FIDM Design Lab Live—in which five up-and-coming designers competed to create red-carpet gowns—the event offered guests an insider’s look into this season’s most coveted looks. Tallarico Vodka and Keurig refreshed attendees with beverages as they shopped with the incentive to win a one-night stay at the prized SLS Las Vegas. All of this was produced by the amazing team at No Subject LA. We loved being part of this fashion event and of course we kept all the flowers local and sustainable by using local Marigolds grown in San Diego and Roses from non other than Rose Story Farm..
