What do you get when you combine opera singers, synchronized swimmers, a roaming elephant, traditional Russian dancers, a big band, aerial performers, an elegant travel theme and the most gorgeous decor ever seen? Why, Olga and Koty's wedding, of course! This event was perfection. I still dream about it.

Pop star Eden xo and urban artist slash DJ Thank You X were wed at a stunning Spanish-style private residence in the Los Feliz Hills. I was honored to plan, design, floralize and execute this classic old-Hollywood celebration, for two of the sweetest people on the planet. From the striking red-rose arrangements to the napkins I custom-made, I will forever be grateful to have played such an integral role in Eden & Ryan's wedding.

When wedding blogger Summer Watkins wed Bryan Ball, we pulled out all the stops. I worked with an absolute dream team to conceptualize and execute one of the most exquisite events I've ever been a part of. Summer's recognizable style was on point for every aspect of this glorious wedding celebration.

Ralph Lauren elegance exuded from this picture-perfect wedding at the bride's family private residence outside of Aspen. From Barlow the Bulldog's floral collar to the mustard velvet ribbon at each place setting to the striped fresh flower wall behind the dessert table, there was not a detail overlooked on this stunning day. Against the magnificent Colorado mountain backdrop, a breathtakingly beautiful storm swept in as guests dined, as if nature itself decided to gift the happy couple.

Courtney and Shawn chose Aspen as the location for their destination wedding celebration, and started the weekend out with a welcome dinner for all their guests at Baldwin Gallery in downtown Aspen. I wanted the florals to be art installations of their own in this beautiful modern art gallery, so we played with color, texture and structure, sourcing sleek vessels to set off the wonderful shapes of the tropical flowers and foliage.

Maria & Nick are the talented photography and videography duo Studio 1208, based in England.
This was how they described what they hoped to achieve for their vow renewal slash fifth wedding anniversary: "Macklemore meets Almost Famous meets Lana Del Rey meets a sparkly Woodstock meets old Vegas and then Vogue does an editorial on it and you look at it while going back to the future and Karl Lagerfeld gives you a nod and Kate Moss is hoping to be invited next time. So glamorous, but bohemian and wild, but unpretentious and completely over the top."
I think we nailed it.

My identical twin daughters Oakleigh and Brioney survived incredible odds both during gestation and after their premature birth. Life support, surgeries, and months upon months in the NICCU was our reality. Reaching their first birthday was an incredible milestone and it felt like the first event of their lives that I had any control over. I played with their nickname "The Magic Babies" by running with a modern take on an enchanted forest theme. It was a truly beautiful and emotional celebration of these two sweet babes who really are pure magic.
