Last week, South Asian Bride’s blog featured the “Grand Del Mar Experience”, a special luncheon inviting top South Asian wedding planners and vendors to San Diego’s Grand Del Mar hotel for a day of fabulous company, delicious food, gorgeous views and everything in between!  These gorgeous photos were shot by Braja of Braja Mandala Photography who is fast becoming known as one of the leading wedding photographers specializing in Indian Weddings and Events.

The event was over the top with gorgeous colors, décor and  authentic food.  Raj Tents provided lovely pergola tents in cream and mandarin colors which framed the vibrant purple and orange tablescape décor including florals by Kathy Wright.

Why Reversible linens:

Although it’s common to use the same linens and colors for every table, designers and brides are now using 2-3 different linens of the same colors tones to the tables to add fun and an extra interest to the décor. Using reversible linens will allow you to do this easily.  Many of our fabrics have a complimentary color on the reverse side allowing you the option to play with 2 different linen styles rather than just one.

Anna Kuperberg Photography

An Events of Distinction event at the Kohl Mansion (San Francisco Bay Area) photographed by Anna Kuperberg used Wildflower Linen’s Camilla Kiwi and Camilla Kiwi Reverse.   Youngsong Martin, founder and principal designer of Wildflower Linen, designs and can decide which threads should be woven together to create a specific color for a linen.   These specific table linens were first created and used for a White House affair.  Now, there are more than 10 different colors in the collection to rent from.

How Reversible linens work:

Most linen companies only have a printed pattern on the linens. Printed patterns are not able to be reversed.  Wildflower Linen, on the other hand, creates the highest quality of imported print fabrics which are not printed on but rather a series of different thread that are woven together to create a pattern.  That is why we are able to offer the reverse of many of our linens.

Fall in Love with Wildflower Linen

September 24th, 2014

This season, fall in love with Wildflower Linen all over again.   With yesterday being the first day of Fall, what better way to celebrate than by sharing this lovely Copper Harvest Fall Wedding Inspiration photoshoot designed by Michelle Cousins of  Utah Events by Design and photographed by Tonya Peterson Photography.

Wildflower_linen_Tony_Peterson_Photography_Diana_Stardust_Ruched_Chair_CoversWildflower_linen_Tony_Peterson_Photography_Copper-Gold-Fall-Wedding-Bouquet

This lovely shoot takes elements of a traditional Fall wedding but uses a few colors outside the norm to add some flair. Michelle used a copper and gold-inspired palette with touches of peach, pink, and mossy green for a little Fall flavor. Details such as the bride’s dress, birdcage veil, and the table linens give this shoot a vintage vibe as well.  The lovely florals were by Chic Design Studios.

We used the Wildflower Linen Vintage Lace Nude table linen overlay with Satin Blush and belle taffeta chocolate napkins for the main tablescape.  This paired perfectly with the copper and gold elements on the table as well as the pink rimmed china and our Gold Lotus Flower Napkin Rings.  Paper goods were provided by My Utah Invitations.

We also included in the shoot one of our most popular and romantic wedding chair covers; the Diana Chair Covers in Stardust.  These chair covers have a bustled and ruched bottom similar to a wedding gown and topped off with a rhinestone brooch for a touch of bling.

For a little more fun and flair, we showcased another chair sleeve created from layers of small rosettes called the Tatiana Blush Chair Sleeve with  chain belt accent.  This chair sleeve also has an optional ruched chiffon betty skirt.

For the dessert table, we used the chiffon velvet burnout latte table linen overlay with a blush underlinen.  This chiffon linen has a velvet swirls pattern throughout, creating a soft and romantic touch to the décor and allowed for the more dominant colors of the dark chocolate, mauve and gold/copper tones to shine.

Wildflower_Linen_Luxe_Event_Ceremony_arlette_champagne_chair_sleeves 1

Two different color schemes, one gorgeous event! This champagne pink and platinum dream wedding is sure to be an eye pleaser for any bride to be!  Featuring one of our most popular chair covers, the Arlette with Winston Rhinestone Champagne Chair Sleeves and custom Juliet Silver table linens, we can’t wait to share with you all the details!  The talented Luxe Events brought this beautiful wedding together showing soft blush pink, ivory and hints of black detail for the ceremony and then bright platinum silver, white and purple for the reception.  All of this was photographed by Jennifer Dery Photography.

CEREMONY:

Before and After:

We love sharing before and after photos to show just how amazing a transformation of space can be.  Everything from the chiffon drapes, canopy, florals, chandeliers and chair covers were all brought in!  The ethereal ceremony was drenched in flowers and crystals with both literally dripping from the ceiling!  Roses were hung from Swarovski crystal strands, complimenting the beautiful draping by Concepts Event Design.  Blush Botanicals ivory canopy was draped at four posts and covered across the front in ivory, blush and lavender blooms with organic succulent accents.  A large black chandelier (Concepts Event Design) matched the four black urn vases, two placed to frame the canopy, and two placed at the entry to the aisle.

To complete the look, we used our Wildflower Linen Arlette with Winston Rhinestone Champagne Chair Sleeves for the entire ceremony.  This romantic chair cover is made of a layers of flowy tulle and our nu silk champagne fabric.  Each one included Winston inspired rhinestone embellishments in the center of the chair sleeve for that extra bling.

RECEPTION:

The spectacular reception was simply drowned in details again by the amazing team at Luxe Events.  The linens chosen by the bride were our custom Wildflower Linen Juliet Silver table linens  .  This linen consists of layers of organza in an ombre of silvers.  Each layer is individually sewn so each table linen is one of a kind.  Additionally, we added rhinestone brooches that were hand sewn to bring extra glamour to the event.  This along with the lush florals by Blush Botanicals complimented the fresh silver, grey, white and purple color scheme perfectly.  Gorgeous draping and unique black chandeliers were provided by Concepts Event Design.  Tall mercury glass candle holders were paired with chic clear glass shaped floating candle holders and complimented by glittering rhinestone brooches.

All the florals were over the top gorgeous but one item that must be mentioned is the bouquet!  Not only are the flowers beautiful but extra fabric from the bridal gown and veil were used to wrap the stems and then accented with rhinestones and beading!  Excerpt from Blush Botanicals: The bride carried a romantic and vibrant ivory, purple and blush bouquet of fragrant peonies, soft roses and spray roses, deep purple calla lilies, tulips, brunia, organic succulents and grey dusty miller leaves with glittering rhinestones placed throughout.

Celebrating the 1st year in Korea with Wedding 21 Magazine Photoshoot

August 27th, 2014
Wildflower_Linen_Wedding_21_Magazine_Youngsong_Nisie_working

Youngsong Martin with Nisie Vorachard setting up a gorgeous romantic tablescape for Magazine 21 – Korea

This month marks the first year anniversary of Wildflower Linen Korea!  What better way to celebrate then by traveling over there to do one of Youngsong’s designer photoshoots styled for Korea’s no. 1 wedding magazine, Wedding 21 and then living it up at a surprise party afterwards!

Youngsong brought her good friend and amazing florist, Nisie Vorachard from Nisie’s Enchanted Florists to create her vision of a romantic tablescape enveloped in lush orchids and soft colored florals.  We also introduced our new chair sleeves, the Milano Silver Cap with Tulle and Rose Belt!  See the article and gorgeous photos below.

Wedding_21_Magazine_CoverWedding_21_Wildflower_linen_feature Wedding_21_Wildflower_linen_feature

From the setup to the final shoot, the team worked hard to create the perfect tablescape.  We kept the table linen crisp and clean in order to showcase the chair covers and florals.  It is nice to have elements in the décor that is just the “cheerleaders” once in a while.  These are the items that compliment and support the main focal point; otherwise, there may be too many things competing with one another and the overall vision can get lost.  Nisie noticed how gorgeous and vibrant the colors of the florals are in Korea.  They are more wildly grown and tend to appear more lush and rich in form during the green season.  We wanted to make sure her florals were a huge focal point of the shoot.  Then, as your eyes gradually lower, you see the classic clean beauty of the table decor followed by the more elaborate and whimsical eye catching chair sleeves.

Wildflower_Linen_Wedding_21_Magazine_Tablescape Wildflower_Linen_Wedding_21_Magazine_Tablescapeg_details Wildflower_Linen_Wedding_21_Magazine_Tablescapeg_chair_covers

We are so excited to showcase one of our new chair covers, the Milano Silver Cap with Tulle and Rose Belt. Layers of soft grey colored tulle is dressed with the Milano Silver fabric created into a cap to cover the top of the chair.  It’s finished off by one of our new Rose Belts; a thick band and silk fabric shaped into a rosette which comes in a variety of colors.  You can find this and other NEW chair covers on the Wildflower Linen website!

Although Youngsong thought she would be celebrating the 1st year anniversary of Wildflower Linen Korea with just a few friends, instead a surprise party honoring her ensued!  This private party was jammed packed with big celebrities including fashion designers Mag & Logan as well as high profile guests including editor in chief of magazines, hotel directors and friends that traveled from Indonesia.   The event also showcased the gorgeous tablescape from the photoshoot for all the guest to see.

“What a fabulous week we shared in Korea and with such a fabulous accomplishment to celebrate! We are so proud of our Wildflower Linen Korea Team and appreciate all those that have worked with us this first year!  We look forward to many more years of creating beautiful events to come!” – Youngsong Martin.

Grace Ormonde Feature - Royal Blue RomanceGrace Ormonde Feature - Royal Blue Romance pg2

We are in love with the colors of this Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Feature – Royal Blue Romance.   Designed by Alissa Hussey from David Tutera, the vibrant colors of the royal blue crushed velvet table linens and magenta florals  give a regal yet classic romance feel.  These bold elements along with gold table décor accents were a perfect pairing.  A 4ft chandelier created from thousands of beaded crystals and covered in hydrangeas and orchids added as the focal point to the tablescape.   The Yodsukars photography, who also did the lighting for the shoot, was able to captures these vivid elements in their true color.

Pink Ruffles and Butterflies Baby Shower

July 22nd, 2014

Although  over the top weddings are what we’re known for, we couldn’t resist sharing this pink ruffles and butterflies baby shower filled with delightful goodies including bird cages, hanging lanterns, dangling pearls and more! From the lavished tablescape décor and gorgeous florals to the decadent desserts and artfully decorated cake, this adorable baby shower is such a sweet treat… “oh baby” is right!

Wildflower_linen_Dessart_Designs_Slickforce_Studio Dessert Table 2

DessArt Designs came up with the gorgeous overall look for the event so we asked Liza from their company to describe the inspiration and style: Our client wanted it to be very girly and opulent, so we used lots of pearls and bling as well as butterflies for a whimsical feel. We also used these same elements to custom design one of our well known signature dessert tables for our client. We used crystals and pearl accents and chiffon embellishments to add a chic touch.

A dinner set for 50 turned into an epic Great Gatsby style soiree for over 200 at Youngsong’s private party at HBO’s Entourage House – Toberman Estates.  Set in the heart of Hollywood Hills, this iconic location set the backdrop to one of this year’s most talked about parties. Hosted by Youngsong Martin, owner and CEO of Wildflower Linen, she along with the owners of Toberman Estates, ChefDance set forth to entertain their closest friends along with debuting the works of Natalia Jung of Grand Éclair who will be the exclusive in-house floral designer for the estate.

Youngsong designed the entire event with its theme title in mind: “Hollywood Then & Now“.  She wanted to show the sophistication and glamour of the past but also incorporate today’s hot trend for vibrant colors, textures and styles.  The design elements included: a unique and clever table configuration for guest to co-mingle comfortably, a gorgeous tablescape that included vibrant peacock teal and blue linens featuring new chair cover styles in rich jewel tones and lush pauve of florals that also included ten foot tall floral centerpieces!

“Lighting was also key in creating the overall feel and look of the event so we used dozens of candles and votives in varying styles on the tables, pinspot the florals and uplit the walls and background trees with amber and emerald  and sapphire lighting” says Youngsong.

About C.E. Toberman Estate

For the first time, VIP and select guests were invited to a rare and exciting inside glimpse to one of the most beautiful and glamorous homes in Hollywood, the C.E. Toberman estate.

Charles_Toberman_Estate,_Hollywood

Built in 1922 and featured on the cover of the first-ever edition of Architectural Digest, this show-stopping property appeared in numerous films, most recently as the “the hip ‘trophy'” house of Vincent Chase on the first two seasons of HBO‘s Entourage and the later sixth season.  As the former home of the legendary real estate developer behind other such notable landmarks such as the Hollywood Bowl, the Chinese Theatre, The Rooservelt Hotel and the Egyptian Theatre, this estate was the crown jewel in the empire of Charles Toberman, “The Father of Hollywood”.

Entourage-Movie-could-be-hitting-the-big-screenentourage castvinny-chase-s-house-used

C. E. Toberman hired architects Russell & Alpaugh to design his Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival style dream house, which took two years to build and was completed in 1924.  The estate, built on a 2-acre lot, includes a 19-room, 9,800-square-foot main house, a 1,809-square-foot guest apartment and garage, and a separate natatorium with a 30 by 50-foot tiled pool with cabanas under skylights.  The main house has eight fireplaces, a butler’s pantry and cut-crystal doorknobs. Toberman, who lived to be 101 years old, recalled in a 1981 interview that the estate became “practically a country club” with its enclosed swimming pool, tennis courts, a nine-hole pitch-and-putt golf course, and formal gardens.

Celebrity Wedding – R&B Divas Hawaii Wedding

June 30th, 2014

Congratulations to Monifah Carter and Terez Thorpe’s R&B Divas Hawaii Wedding which is also known as a monumental milestone for LGBTQ.  With the recent legalization of Same Sex marriages in the State of Hawaii, this wedding is even more meaningful being the first ever African American Same Sex wedding couple televised in the US.  The wedding was produced entirely on the island on Oahu, Hawaii.  Additional features about this monumental day were noted in CNN, Essence, Ebony, GayWeddings.com and Popsugar!

Monifah Carter, who stars on the reality TV series R&B Divas, wed her girlfriend, Terez Thorpe on TV One.  Wedding producer Brit Bertino of Brit Bertino, Event Excellence along side planner/florist  Carolee Higashino of White Orchid Wedding designed the tropical affair, creating a “beautiful and meaningful, music-filled wedding.”  The beautiful images below were captured by Frank Amodo Photography.

More Details from Brit Bertino:

Inspiration and Design

“We drew inspiration for the design of the event from Monifah’s engagement ring, an amethyst stone. The color allowed us to bring in some natural earth elements, and to incorporate nautical touches, as both brides wanted an earthy feel to the overall design. We carried the ombré concept through the stationery, linens, cakes, signature drink, and florals, and the result was as unique as the beautiful couple themselves.

Wildflower Linen’s amethyst table linens and signature ruffled Juliet chair sleeve covers along with White Orchid Wedding’s florals were the perfect addition to their decadent affair.

“Music was another one of the most important elements. Mahi performed during the ceremony, as did Rahsaan Patterson. Other close friends performed at the reception, including Keke Wyatt and Syleena Johnson. DJ Spark, also a friend of the couple, presided over the reception festivities.”

“Another special feature of the wedding was the ‘Fat Snack’ table, which Terez simply had to have. The sweets included vegan, gluten-free peanut butter cookies made specially for her by the chef. Vegan diets were taken into consideration when planning dinner entrées selections, as well.

June 11th, 2014

Just as Olaf the adorable snowman from Frozen can’t wait to experience Summer, we are excited for it’s arrival as well!  And what better way to say hello to summer weddings than with vibrant bright and cheerful yellow florals.

Aired on WeTv, this lovely wedding photographed by the super talented  Mike Colon, was designed and coordinated by our dear friend and celebrity planner, Diann Valentine.  With the help of floral designers from Tic-Tock Couture Florals and  1-800-FLOWERS, thousands of beautiful and vibrant yellow florals were used to create luscious centerpieces, a gorgeous fountain arrangement and even florals covering lounge furniture!  Hundreds of candles were used to finish the romantic décor.
