Best of Bride 2015: A Vibrant Moroccan Den

Written by
Megan McCarty Lara Burnap

Our 2nd Annual Best of Bride event at the Legendary Park Plaza in downtown Los Angeles was an incredible night from start to finish. From the awards ceremony announcing the winners (see the full list here!) to spaces that included a modern zen lounge, a 90's inspired techno dance club and an elegant Baroque space. Upon arrival, Nicole Alexandra Designs swept guests off their feet with a bright and festive Moroccan-inspired den. Gorgeous and bright draping lined the Park Plaza's grand foyer leading guests up the famous steps.The historic Gold Room was transformed into a beautiful lounge with furniture from Archive Rentals adorned with lush florals by Florunique and greenery from Jackson Shrub.

Henna by Natasha added to the vibe by painting her intric designs on guests while they enjoyed cocktails from Scarlette Bartending, including the Of All The Gin Joints--an infusion of Scarlette’s lavender-infused gin, organic blackberries and fresh citrus served over crushed ice with blackberry garnish and the Red Hot Night featuring Scarlette’s vanilla-infused bourbon, hibiscus liqueur, organic lemon juice, dry shake egg white topped with sparkling rose mint sprig and edible 24k gold flakes. Aslo on hand were a delicious array of appetizers from Summit Event Catering including Coconut beer battered shrimp lollipops on with tangerine mustard dipping sauce, arancini with four cheese risotto, sliced rare filet mignon crostini on herbed baguette with creamed horse radish, arugula, smoked provolone and truffle oil, butternut squash soup shots with focaccia cheese wafer and seared scallop with butter sauce on applewood bacon.
