Chizu and Andrew were married at Walt Disney Concert Hill, a modern and classic venue here in Los Angeles. I enjoyed working with Chizu and admired how She has the vision of making everything looks pretty and even more. Here are some beautiful and classic pictures by Sherrij Photography of their wedding day:
Nicole and Jabbar were recently married on a sunny Saturday in June. The wedding was held at the Hilton Hotel in Woodland Hills. Their colors were blush pink and magenta and grey. Here are some beautiful images provided by
Nicole carried a bouquet of white and blush pink flowers: white peonies, blush pink peonies, white “polo” roses, white freesia, and white cymbidium orchids with magenta throats.
The maid of honor carried a similar bouquet but with magenta peonies, magenta dendrobium orchids, pink cymbidium orchids, white freesia, and white “polo” roses.
The bridesmaid bouquets were mostly white, blush, and pink with accents of magenta.
The ring bearer carried a pillow made of white cushion poms and decorated with pink cymbidium orchids and magenta dendrobium orchids.
We provided a large manzanita tree arrangement decorated with blush pink dendrobium orchids and crystals with the based covered with hydrangea and roses.2
A tall arrangement of all white hydrangeas accented the place card table.
Nicole was clever and wanted to use the reception table flowers as ceremony decor as well. The aisle was lined with clear glass cylinders holding magenta dendrobium orchids immersed in water as well as clear glass cylinders holding a pillar candle on a bed of blush pink rose petals. Both cylinder designs were later moved to the reception tables.
Annie and Ted were married on a perfect June day at the Neighborhood Church, followed by a reception at the Palos Verdes Country Club. Their colors were ivory with touches of blush pink.
Annie loves peonies and it was the perfect time for white and blush pink peonies. We also used lovely ‘polo’ ivory roses and hydrangea.
Annie’s bouquet featured all white peonies in various states of openness.
The bridesmaids carried bouquets of ivory ‘polo’ roses and blush pink peonies.
We placed a tall arrangement of hydrangea and peonies in the center of the escort card table with the escort cards radiating out from the flowers.
Each reception table held a low centerpiece of ivory hydrangea and ‘polo’ roses and blush pink peonies. We wrapped the clear glass cylinders with a band of gold ribbon.
Jenny and Kevin were married on a Saturday in May at the Marriott Hotel in Newport Beach. Their colors were peach, blush pink, ivory, and accents of lime green. Because the ceremony and reception both occurred in the afternoon, Jenny wanted a fun look that still spoke “wedding”. To make things more fun and interesting, we incorporated bright green Fuji mums and peachy-pink hypericum berry mixed in with the roses and hydrangea. The different textures from the Fuji mums and hypericum berry broke things up a little in the centerpieces so they didn’t look too soft.
The girls carried all rose bouquets in ivory and peachy-pink. Jenny’s bouquet also featured blush pink peonies and peach French tulips mixed in with the ivory roses. We accented the bouquet with loops of blush satin ribbon.

The flower girl carried a petite pomander made of lime green kermit poms.
And the groom and groomsmen boutonnieres were made from peachy-pink French tulips.
The bride and groom honored their close family and relatives with boutonniere style personal flowers made from pink cymbidium orchids.
The ceremony was held in a lovely garden setting at the hotel. We decorated the gazebo simply with vines and greenery. The tall centerpieces were repurposed as ceremony decor, placed on white pedestals along the aisle.
Denise and David were married at the beautiful hotel, Shutters on the Beach, in Santa Monica. A romantic winter wedding, their colors were deep red, white, and light green. Some amazing pictures by
. ( bad ones by our phone)
Denise carried a bridal bouquet of deep red and white flowers: white peonies, white “polo” roses, red “avanta” garden roses, white cymbidium orchids, and dark burgundy schwarzwalder mini calla lilies.
Her bridesmaids carried bouquets of light green cymbidium orchids and deep red “Black Magic” roses.
Boutonnieres was made with ivory cymbidium orchid accented with a hypericum berry, plus lily grass.
I love these floral ring bearer pillows! This one was made of green kermit poms and accented with freesia and a cymbidium orchid.
The ceremony was held on the pool deck at sunset with the Pacific Ocean in view.
Tall white arrangements of hydrangea and “casablanca” lilies were placed on pedestals framing the bride and groom.
A light green cymbidium orchid was placed at each place setting on the reception tables. We also made three tall separate, yet similar, designs for the centerpieces. For each centerpiece we used white orchids, hydrangea, and light green hypericum berries. We also accented the centerpieces with hanging crystals.
Here’s design #1, a sphere of hydrangea, roses, and hypericum berry placed on a cylinder with immersed white dendrobium orchids. Long stems of white dendrobium orchids radiate out and downward with 10″ crystal strands attached to the stems.
Here’s design #2 featuring curly willow branches, cymbidium orchids, and dendrobium orchids; a classic arrangement with stems in the water.
I really liked how this design turned out (#3). We placed a sphere of hydrangea and hypericum berry on top of a cylinder filled with immersed white dendrobium orchid stems. Curly willow branches radiated up and out from the top center of the floral sphere and were accented with long white Hawaiian dendrobium orchids. We finished the arrangement by hanging clear teardrop shaped crystals from the branches.
Jennifer and Michael were married at Calamigos Ranch, in the lovely Cottage Pavilion. Jennifer loves orchids!! So we featured several different types of orchids in her wedding color scheme of white, green, and purple. Calla lilies were also used in white and purple.
The bridesmaids carried bouquets of all bright green cymbidium orchids.
Jennifer carried a bouquet of white cymbidium orchids with purple lips mixed with white mini calla lilies.
An modern installation of 5 tall clear glass cylinders were arranged on the escort card table. The two taller cylinders were topped with purple mokara orchids and the lower cylinders held bouquets of purple mini calla lilies.
On each cocktail table, we placed a clear glass vase with vines and long stemmed purple mini calla lilies twisting within the vase.
A tall manzanita branch arrangement was placed on the guestbook table next to wedding pictures of the bride and groom’s parents. I always get a big kick out of seeing these vintage wedding pictures – love it! We anchored the sandblasted manzanita branches in a tall glass square vase filled with white pebbles. I like how you can see the pebbles through the glass of the vase making it look like the branches are in a white vase. The branches were decorated with white cymbidium orchid blossoms, clear crystals, and stems of purple dendrobium orchids.
The ring bearing flower girl carried the sweetest pillow made from flowers! Here we used green kermit poms and tied a white satin ribbon around the pillow and accented it with orchids.
For the aisle chair decor, we tied entire stems of green cymbidium orchids onto every other chair with purple satin ribbon.
The reception was held under a big white tent decorated with twinkling lights. Each table held a tall skinny white tower vase topped with all purple dendrobium orchids. And flickering battery-operated tea lights in frosted glass votive holders completed the look.
Stay tuned for John Li’s gorgeous photographs of the lovely bride and groom on their wedding day!
