Trump National Golf Club Wedding - Rancho Palos Verdes

Classic and timeless with a whimsical twist was the style of this wedding. Alysha and Johnny wanted the decor to fit the elegance of the Trump National Golf Course in Rancho Palos Verdes but with a young, fresh flair. The wedding color palette; cream, snowy white, sky blue and chocolate brown...


A classic bridal bouquet created with Sahara roses and white hydrangea, with a soft collar of feathers for a little drama. The stems were banded with white satin ribbon and finished with a heirloom brooch.


The bridesmaids wore gorgeous floor length sky blue dresses accented with a chocolate brown sash and flower. Their bouquets were created with a variety of roses such as Sahara, Creme de la Creme, Amelia and Vendela, as well as mini white calla lilies and brasilia berries.

It was such an honor working with the Wheeler family again, we also did the floral decor for Alysha's sister, Tiffany three years ago. This time she played the part of maid of honor...

A common trend in weddings has been the addition of women to the Groom's side and vice versa. And I must say, I love it. I think it is amazing that the bride and groom's true friends, whether it be a man or woman, are being able to stand by them (literally) on such an important day in their lives. Johnny's groomswomen wore hair pieces and chic floral bracelets created with open Sahara roses, accented with feathers.


We have named this our "Carrie" wristlet, and it has been one of our most 
popular floral accessory for years... it's fun, fresh and stylish.



The custom designed white aisle was lined with hanging floral chandeliers on shepard's hooks. The floral chandeliers were created with roses, hydrangea and accented with white feathers.


 Alysha is a professional dancer and entertainer. So she incorporated so many personal details into the wedding...from a perfectly choreographed "Dancing with the Stars" first dance, a musically filled reception including dance troupes and a ballerina on pointe during the ceremony 
(just to name a few)...

And she was one of my favorite elements about this wedding... a ballerina went down the aisle 
on pointe before Alysha made her grand entrance. 


The ceremony frame was covered with fresh white blossoms and hanging candles.

For the centerpieces we used white, ivory and soft blue flowers with a 
punch of chartreuse for a fresh and fun flair.  



The tall centerpieces were created with light blue and white hydrangea, ivory roses, white phaeo orchids, accented with green dianthis and hanging amaranths. The cylinder was filled with stems of white dendrobium orchids and accented with a band of sky blue ribbon. The tables were dressed with chocolate brown satin linens, with a fresh accent of sky blue linens.

The other centerpiece style was created using cylinders filled with submerged white flowers such as tulips, orchids and roses. The base of the cylinders was accented with little sky blue ribbon wrapped vases filled with white hydrangea. 

And now for their first dance... "The Lovers" Alysha and Johnny choreographed their first dance with a taped opening a la "Dancing with the Stars"... I adore these shots of the bride and groom in action. So fun and true to their character and style!!!

And for the grand finale, yes that is Alysha, the bride... spinning across the dance floor doing the death drop in her bridal gown. LOVE IT!!! 

 Congratulations Alysha & Johnny, wishing you a lifetime filled with 
love and unforgettable moments...xoxo

  4. My twin cousins are dancing down the aisle as ballerina's as well. They are 12 and were originally going to be my flower girls but I have decided I want them to dance before I walk down the aisle and then stand as my junior bridesmaids. I thought this was such a beautiful idea and love the fact that the bride did this. Seeing these pictures has confirmed what a great idea this is :) Do you have any suggestions on the music for them to dance to? Thank you and your pictures are BEAUTIFUL!

  5. I would love to know the designer of your bridesmaids dresses. I'm planning my wedding and absolutely love them.
