When you are a wedding designer in Los Angeles, it is such a relief to do a wedding at the beach that is not beach themed. You are already AT the beach. Need I say more? Designing this wedding was a breath of fresh air for me as a designer but on a personal note I just really enjoyed working with this bride. Her family was great. She was a doll. Just a pure joy for me to help them create a fabulous night.

Dream Bridal just posted this wedding I did in the Hollywood Hills. Shot by Laura Grier of Beautiful Day Photography. Loved working with Stacy and Marty.
I’m very excited, because I’m featuring one stunning party all week long. It’s going to be served up like a gourmet meal, one delicious course at a time.
This event was planned by Ryan Larson of Savoir Flair Weddings, the event planning maven to stylish Angelenos and beyond. Her weddings have been featured in Modern Bride, Inside Weddings, Elegant Bride, and The Knot Wedding Pages, as well as a celebrity tabloid that shall remain nameless! Ugh, I want the scoop on that as I’ve been known to enjoy a rag or two during my weekends…but I digress.
Ryan has stopped by this week to share the wedding she planned for Stacy and Marty last summer. The details for this wedding are perfection, and this couple just looks so happy to tie the knot. But don’t let me get ahead of myself here. Remember, just one course at a time. Today appetizers are served, and we get to meet the beautiful bride. Join us for the second course tomorrow, when bride and groom meet. Enjoy!
Bride & Groom: Stacy & Marty
Wedding date: July 19, 2009
Wedding venue: Bride & Groom’s home in the Hollywood Hills
Colors: A natural palette of the peacock; a gradation of blues, greens, browns
Inspirations: Old Hollywood, art deco, al fresco dining under the stars
I like to get to know the couples first before we do any design. I ask things like, “What do you do for fun?” and “What kind of decorating style do you have in your home?” Then the big question: “What kind of feelings do you want conveyed that night?” This to me is extremely important, especially because so much can come out of the feelings….colors, style, food, music type…etc.
About Savoir Fair Weddings: For Ryan, no two weddings could ever be alike because the design is inspired by the couple themselves. Ryan meets with the couple to really get to know them before she can even think about design. She feels there is nothing worse than a “canned wedding.” Ryan believes the key to a truly memorable wedding celebration lies in making it personal and unique. She has a reputation for dreaming up distinctive, one of a kind weddings that speak to the couple’s style and personality.
