A wedding planner’s day of romance and Art Deco glamour

Danielle Silver, a wedding planner at Orange Blossom Special Events, met Bryce Niemann during her first month at Arizona State University. Four years later, after graduation, the couple moved to Los Angeles together. After dating for eight years, Bryce made it official with a proposal at the Japanese Garden in Van Nuys. Following the advice Danielle routinely tells her clients, she and Bryce began their planning by picking the venue first: Downtown Los Angeles’ Cicada, with its old Hollywood glam. Their design was inspired by the details they had chosen to enhance their venue, which was Roaring 20s glam meets romance and Art Deco. Among them were tall tulips, which her florist Susan of Peony & Plum executed perfectly to match the venue. Other unique elements included black napkins with golden lettering that had facts about the couple, and a white dance floor to make the elegantly dark room pop. As a wedding planner, Danielle picked all of her favorite vendors she knew she could trust. Her best advice for couples on their big day is “Do not sweat the small stuff; think of the bigger picture and enjoy every second.”
