Our Design at the Luxe Linen Launch Event at Vibiana 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Our Design at the Luxe Linen Launch Event at Vibiana

Last year we were completely blown away by the beauty that took place at the Luxe Linen Launch event at Vibiana located in downtown Los Angeles. So its safe to say that when we were asked to design a space featuring one of Luxe Linen’s new tablecloths- we were thrilled and honored to be a part of such a fabulous event!

We began designing our display with Camellia Floral Design and we were thrilled to be using a color palette that we don’t often get to work with. Inspired by an alfresco dinner set in a romantic backyard of a Montecito estate- Revelry Event Designers assembled this stunning large wooden arbor where we suspended large chandeliers with soft wood beads & romantic peach colored chiffon drapery. Then Camille added her whimsical flowers in a way that looked as if they were growing throughout the space. Party Pleasers provided layers of seagrass rugs and their unique terra cotta and copper place settings to add the perfect finishing touches.

We’d like to extend an extra special thank you to the fabulous team of professionals who made this vision come to life! This includes: Camellia Floral Design, Revelry Event Design, Luxe Linens, Party Pleasers, Calligraphy Katrina, High Voltage Lighting, Vibiana, Rayce PR, Natura Macrame, and Brian Leahy for the absolutely gorgeous images of our design. We were beyond thrilled to be included in this fabulous event and were incredibly overwhelmed by the large attendance & sweet compliments about our design. Luxe Linen – Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of this magical evening.

Here is the beautiful video of the full event put together by Lin & Jirsa:


Groom’s Style by La Fete Weddings 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Groom’s Style by La Fete Weddings

This week we wanted to focus on our Grooms… What makes them excited? What do they think is stylish? What do they enjoy most about the wedding?  Each man is completely different when it comes to planning the wedding, but most groom’s get excited about these few things. When it comes to the groom’s style.

1) Grooms Fashion Accessories-

From Cufflinks, Bow Ties, Shoes, pocket squares to boutonnières! Check out some of our handsome grooms and their wedding day style:

2) The Cigar Bar & Lounge-

The Cigar Lounge is a new request among most of our grooms and we can completely understand why… We create a masculane atmosphere, comfy sofas and a fabulous selection of cigars from La Aroma de Havana, and sometimes bring in an expert to make suggestions, cut the ends of the cigars and light them for you! Now, I am not going to say that every bride loves this… because cigars are often VERY potent and the smell can be a bit overpowering. The cigar lounge can also have a separation effect. Sometimes we will see ALL of the ladies on the dance floor and the men are off enjoying their cigars. So if your goal is to keep everyone dancing to that fabulous band you paid for.. Then we suggest having your cigar bar & lounge at your after party. This way your can designate a section to the gentlemen that want to enjoy their cigars, and the ladies can have their own area as well.

3) The Martini Luge-

We have done a few of these over the past few years and they are ALWAYS a huge hit with the wedding guests! This year we had an adorable couple that we worked with and the groom’s one & only request was a dirty martini luge! The ice luge turned out beautifully and he was thrilled when he walked into the reception and saw it!

4) And finally, the one thing that separates the single from the married men- The Ring. Here is a collection of some of our favorite ring selections! When searching for the Groom’s ring, keep in mind that they should “go” together. Not only does that “ring shot” photo really stand out, the two of you should coordinate the styles in some way!

Hot Color Trend: The Best Dressed at the Oscars 2014 wore Champagne and Nude Beaded Gowns 150 150 La Fete Weddings

Hot Color Trend: The Best Dressed at the Oscars 2014 wore Champagne and Nude Beaded Gowns

We always love all the fashion trends that come from the awards season, but this year we are particularly fond of a certain color trend that swept the red carpet yesterday. Champagne and Nude beaded dresses were found on all of our favorite celebrities who we thought were the best dressed at the Oscars 2014! Not only does this color palette  look stunning on the stars, it inspires us for weddings and our brides. Take a look at some of these jaw dropping dresses, along with their hair and make up perfection & prepare to fall in love.

Guiliana Rancic looked drop dead gorgeous in her embroidered Paola Sebastian gown. The close up details of the dress are shown below and we are dying to see someone wear this for a wedding dress. We love the contrasting ivory bodice with the slightly darker taupe skirt.


Sally Hawkins was draped in a full-sleeve beaded Valentino gown that worked beautifully with her short curly hair.

Naomi Watts wore one of our favorite gowns of the evening in her sleek beaded Calvin Klein column style gown. We love the modern geometric design of her necklace & clutch paired with the simplicity of her dress.

Angelina Jolie dazzled in the beaded and sheer Elie Saab gown. Such a stunning color for her complexion and she accessorized simply with drop earrings and very natural make up.

Kate Hudson turned heads in her form fitting Versace dress with the detachable cape. This gown is effortlessly chic and every detail  appears as if it was made for her. Loving her subtle wavy hair and natural make up.

Jessica Biel went classic in Chanel and her hair and make up looks absolutely flawless. We love the raw silk edge along the bust of that dress- so gorgeous.

Award winner Cate Blanchett looked remarkable in her Armani Privé gown. We think this could be the perfect dress for a mother of the bride!

Jenna Tatum rocked his stunner from Reem Acra which again looks like it could be a perfect look for any bride to be.

And last but certainly not least- Maria Menounos was styled to PERFECTION in her Johanna Johnson gown. We are obsessed with her hair, make up and low-back dress. The details work together effortlessly and her hair and make up would be a great look for anyone on their wedding day.
