Gene Simmon’s Wedding Vow Renewal in Hawaii

January 23rd, 2014

Gene Simmons and gorgeous wife Shannon Tweed married in October 2011 after 28 years of dating.  Last year in late 2013, they celebrated a lovely and intimate wedding vow renewal at the  Haiku Mill venue in Maui, Hawaii!  We can’t say anything more than it was just jaw dropping beautiful from start to finish!


From a beautifully decorated vintage style vignettes for the ceremony seating and a gorgeous reception table display with our curly willow chair sleeves as a special touch to a huge white dance floor with 4 100lb floral chandeliers, this wedding had it all!

Take a look at these amazing images photographed by Trish Barker Photography as well as some excerpts from the ladies of  Lady Liberty Events who designed and styled the event with One Heart Weddings +  White Orchid Weddings.  Their beautiful event is also featured on Style Me Pretty.

Excerpts below from Liberty of Lady Liberty Events

We decided on a black, blush and gold palate to bring together the glamorous and modern vibe with the perfect hint of edginess. The design for this occasion was simply stunning and was the ideal representation of their softer romantic side mixed with their rock & roll personalities!

Upon arrival guests made their way through a 25ft white hanging flower wall entrance, where they were seated at stunning styled vignettes. A combination of vintage settees, ottomans, and armchairs accented with modern black and blush throw pillows, creating an opulent setting for the ceremony seating. Billows of flowing linen covered the walls and ceilings while blush and ivory ribbons posed as the perfect backdrop for the bride and groom to say I do… again. Flanked with lush hydrangea centerpieces and a custom aisle showcasing their monogram, the walk down the aisle was nothing shy of stunning. Gene & Shannon’s daughter, Sophie, put together a warm and heartfelt ceremony and with the addition of their personal vows, there was not a dry eye in the house.

Guests were then invited to make their way into the reception and dinner area, lead by the sound of cool jazz played by the live 9 piece band. The table was set with sparkling blush linens, gold chargers & flatware, and black modern glassware. Each setting was accented with black laser cut plexi glass place cards, which looked amazing against the blush and gold tones. Overhead, swags of blush drapery and gorgeous chandeliers with black accents provided a stunning atmosphere. Gold candelabras & gold mercury votives were mixed in with the lush arrangements which consisted of fragrant garden roses and hydrangeas set in striking black vessels. The chairs were covered with flirty curly willow blush chair sleeves from Wildflower Linen which effortlessly complimented the table scape. The vibrant living greenery surrounding the area and the light sound of waterfalls perfected the look of the dining area  [making it the perfect location for a Hawaiian Wedding].

The huge white dance floor glowing with Gene & Shannon’s monogram was surrounded by 4, 100lb floral chandeliers that were simply mouth dropping. Petite vignettes surrounded the floor and were accented with custom monogramed dupioni silk pillows with gold embroidery. Once everyone made their way to the dance floor, the evening’s festivities had just begun! Shannon had requested Karaoke for the reception, so we figured what better way than to have a live band play as their background music! Gene hopped on the bass while, Sophie & Nick (their kids) sang the night away. They definitely all rocked the house, and had a blast the entire evening!

Destination Weddings -The Bayer Estate Oahu, Hawaii

January 15th, 2014

We so enjoyed reading Pacific Wedding Magazine’s destination weddings blog that we wanted to share it with our friends here!  A lovely couple, Sophia and Steve, which we had the privilege to meet in LA, had their wedding at the historical  Bayer Estate on the romantic island of Oahu, Hawaii.  We love seeing the details of Weddings in Hawaii as the scenery can create the most beautiful backdrops!


As Sophia remembers of their magical day, “With the Pacific Ocean as our backdrop and the sound of the waves crashing on the sand, our outdoor wedding was nothing short of magical.”

Take a look at some of the photos from the wedding day, taken by Lamour Photography.

Sophia describes the overall theme of their wedding as “vintage glamour”, reflecting the history and romance in the following excerpt:

The backyard was transformed with Italian lights and crystal chandeliers to create a classic ambiance. Event and floral designer, Debbie Hemingway of Designs by Hemingway, created a breathtaking arbor of soft blush chiffon, hydrangeas and roses in ivory and pink delicately framing the moment of their union overlooking the water’s edge. Those same soft shades of blush were echoed in the satin and lace linens by Wildflower Linen adorning their reception tables and throughout the floral decor. After a delicious ‘surf n’ turf’ dinner and beautiful wedding cake in unexpected tropical flavors of mango and lemon/blackberry, guests were treated to the beautiful sounds of guitarist Randy Allen.

Sophia and Steven used Wildflower Linen blush table linens and napkins in Crepe Back Satin Blush and then the Carolyn Lace linen overlays in Champagne color.  She also rented our Winston napkin ring which looks like a cluster of diamond rhinestones.

Phoenix Bride & Groom Winter/Spring 2014 Feature

January 10th, 2014

In their Winter/Spring 2014 Issue, Phoenix Bride & Groom featured a lovely photoshoot created by Monica McQueen of Tres Chic Events!


The shoot took place at Desert Botanical Gardens in Tempe, AZ, a location known for its beautiful desert landscape.

“This is a perfect venue for an outdoor wedding ceremony and outdoor or indoor reception for an intimate gathering of 20 or large wedding of 300 people,” says Monica who has managed all wedding sizes and styles.

These detailed photos below were taken by Erica Velasco Photographers and the beautifully crafted florals were created by Butterfly Petals.

Excerpt from Tres Chic Events: The Inspiration

I was inspired by the desert colors and wanted to create a clean and simple design that highlighted the natural beauty of the surroundings, yet had colors that popped off of the green background and made the desert sparkle and shimmer. Therefore, I chose Teal, Bright Yellow and White with some Sparkle, of course.
This venue screamed for some incredible linens to be used and Wildflower Linen has the perfect succulent chair covers and sparkly overlays to make the table eye-popping.

Nene Leakes’ “I Dream of Nene” Wedding Decor Revealed!

November 14th, 2013


Millions tuned in to the 2 hour finale of I Dream of Nene: The Wedding to see her FABULOUS million dollar wedding décor and boy can we tell you it was truly phenomenal!  We’ve already shared Nene’s Wedding Album courtesy of Bravo but are SOOO happy  the wedding episode finally aired so that we can now share some behind the scene images of the décor.

I Dream of Nene Ceremony Video

Click HERE to see a clip of their wedding ceremony.

Nene and her bridesmaid Marlo Hampton met Youngsong during a few visits to at our Wildflower Linen headquarters and Beverly Hills showroom to discuss her wedding concepts and how to incorporate her own styles to the products she liked.  This resulted in the chair covers being customized with rhinestone and crystal embellishments and a custom head table designed and assembled by our Wildflower Linen Team the day before the wedding.   Youngsong Martin and the Wildflower Linen Production Team worked  countless hours days and nights to produce over 700 Chair Covers and 100 designer table linens for Nene and Greg’s nuptials that were then trucked over to Atlanta Georgia from Los Angeles!

Here are some never seen before images of the décor set up prior to the wedding!

From the planner and designer,  Carolyn Chen of The Special Day:
They chose the  Terrenea Resort because of the beautiful ocean views.  [The bride] was inspired by a previous wedding I had planned with a dusty aqua/white and lavender palette so that’s what we went with! It was a daytime reception, so we had Dolce Designs Studio build cabanas so guests could enjoy cocktails outside in the shade. It was a very relaxed and beautiful setting with the 180 degree ocean views!

For this Event, Wildflower Linen provided Homestead Azure Table Linens, custom Carolyn Lace Grey Runners and Matte Satin Victoria Lilac for the Napkins.

For the Cocktail hour, Ottoman Ice Blue were used for the cocktail tables to match the outside decor.
