BizBash West 2011 was a whirlwind of new and exciting designs, inspiration and entertainment! I had so much fun collaborating on a Midsummer’s Night Fantasy table-top design with the always amazing Edgar Zamora of Revelry Event Designers; who won Best Event Designer of the Year at BizBash. Congratulations Edgar! I wanted to create something that William Shakespeare would love if he were to attend a modern-day event. Here’s what we came up with:

The entertainment options at BizBash this year were fabulous! Check out the Lady Gaga look alike!

I had so much fun designing florals for the cocktail party and back lawn at the WIPA June meeting last week at Park Hyatt Aviara in Carlsbad! Bon Voyage: India, Morocco, Turkey was the event’s inspiring theme. The color palette consisted of rich oranges, magenta and pops of red, accessorized with some gorgeous greenery.

It was a beautiful and informative event featuring discussions on A Sense of Place by speakers Ali Phillips, destination wedding planner and photographer Dina Douglas. From the cocktail reception, to dinner, to the speakers, this event was a beautiful collaboration of color and design! Thank you to everyone who contributed to this event; especially Luminaire Images for your gorgeous photos!

Oscar and Rocio’s wedding at the The Mission Inn was exquisite and filled with joy! Oscar and Rocio’s love for each other is so infectious, you can’t help but smile when you’re around them.

Their beautiful ceremony was held in the breathtaking St. Francis of Assisi Chapel. The chapel contains amazing mahogany doors and romantic Tiffany stained glass windows. Rocio and Oscar’s reception was so much fun and was held in the famous Music Room. Hope you enjoy these amazing photographs by Cean One Photography!
