California’s Pacific Ocean is a constant muse for wedding design. From harborside happenings with nautical touches to barefoot celebrations in the sand to bohemian fêtes atop rugged sea cliffs, these inspired event designs breathe new life into a well-loved trend.
Best of 2016: Golden and Glam At the Alexandria Ballroom by Hylah White Special Events
Our Best of 2016 Awards Gala at the historic Alexandria Ballroom in downtown Los Angeles was an incredible night from start to finish. We celebrated the industry's top vendors at our 3rd annual awards ceremony announcing the winners (see the full list of here!) and then kept the party rolling as a talented team of vendors, including Trina Schmidt Weddings and Events, Wheat and Honey Events, and Hylah White Special Events, paid homage to Alexandria's storied history as a gathering spots for Hollywood stars, presidents and social royalties--including such notable events as Charlie Chaplain's wedding.
Hylah White took inspiration from her love of Hollywood and created an ambiance of glitz and glamor along with a timeless essence. Says Hylah of her rich design, "The red carpet invited guests to mingle throughout this classy yet fun lounge that had a moody element. The gorgeous flowers, rich in texture by Rebelle Fleur Event Design complimented the stunning custom cake by Bottega Louie. Mixing and matching 204 Events new breathtaking line of furniture, paired perfectly with the richness of Luxe Linens. It was a festively decorated space perfect for the occasion to celebrate the nominees and winners."
