Leah and David’s Coral and Aqua Wedding

I am totally wild for this summery color combo- spicy oranges and corals against cool aqua. Leah and David wanted hip, artistic, modern decor for their beachside wedding at the beautiful Bel Air Bay Club. Bless Leah’s heart, she was open to a huge range of funky, happy flowers, including cockscomb (the one that looks like a fuzzy orange brain) and pincushion proteas. These quirky flowers really gave the arrangements more texture and drama. I love a girl who can see the beauty in cockscomb.

Leah wanted a luxe tropical feel, but she wanted to do it without the typical beachy elements like sand and shells. We brought in lots of elegant white coral, beautiful candlelight, fabric wrapped vases, and orange sea fans.

Thank you to the fabulous planner Kelly Demaray for being so much fun during the planning and execution of this very detailed wedding. You are so sweet!

To the staff at Bel Air Bay Club– I’ve never been treated so kindly at a wedding before. You were so cheerful and helpful. A+!

A big thanks to Sae Lee Photography for sending over these gorgeous images so quickly. I’m so excited to share them!

Meet the gorgeous bride!


The ceremony took place on a grassy lawn overlooking Pacific Palisades. Needless to say, it didn’t need much beautifying!

Two honored guests carried petite bouquets of happy orange flowers. That blue looks stunning against the orange, doesn’t it?

I loved that each bridesmaid carried unique bouquets and wore unique dresses. Such a well-dressed bridal party!


Each groomsman wore a unique flower to match the bridesmaids.  We tucked little bits of sea fan into the boutonnieres as well.

I love the anticipation in this picture!

And now for the ravishing reception details!

There were two table setups, both using a variety of vases and candles. I am quite surprised I found fabric for the vases that matched the napkins to a T.

Tons of texture in these lush arrangements.

I found these delicate hanging candles and though they’d work beautifully for this wedding.

Can’t forget those little extra touches!

    Wow! Thanks for all these details and I could not agree more on the lusciousness of those color combinations. And yes, cockscomb can find its way into this look and clearly did. I think the small bouquet on the back of the chair might be my favorite. Please keep telling us what you are up to!

    Hi there,

    I love all your designs. I was wondering where you do you get the plexiglass to put the cake on top of the glass cubes?

    Thanks so much,

      Hi Jodi!

      I go to a plastics manufacturer in Pasadena whenever I need to buy plexiglass. You could probably just google one in your area. Also, Home Depot and Lowes carry plexiglass and they’ll cut it to size for you. Hope that helps!

    I was wondering where you bought the coral for this wedding, I’ve been searching because we are going to use them in our centerpieces but I’ve had no luck so far. Thanks! I love what you did for this wedding!!
