Real Weddings: Angeles and Steve / Hotel Maya , Long Beach CA

Angeles and Steve were married at the Hotel Maya in Long Beach. It was a purple and lavender themed wedding with accents of pink and ivory. I loved the decor at the Hotel Maya – lots of eclectic furnishings and wall hangings.
The ceremony was held outdoors with a view of the water and downtown Long Beach. We decorated the chuppah with ivy, hydrangea, lisianthus, roses, and delphinium.
Angeles carried a bouquet of purple hydrangea, pink lisianthus, purple freesia, “polo” roses, and cafe au lait dahlia. The bridesmaids bouquets featured purple lisianthus, cool water roses, and pink cymbidium orchids.

The ring bearer carried a small pillow made of variegated ti leaves and decorated with white and pink cymbidium orchids and purple dendrobium orchids.

For the escort card table, we made a manzanita branch arrangement with sandblasted manzanita branches decorated with hanging pink crystals, orchids, and hydrangea. We covered the base with purple and lavender hydrangea and ivory roses. Pink crystals were draped throughout the branches and we glued white dendrobium orchids and pink cymbidium orchids to the branches.
The centerpieces were comprised of a grouping of three rectangular vases each with a layer of sand and white cymbidium orchids. The cymbidium orchids had purple on the lips – perfect for the purple and lavender themed wedding

We decorated the cake with white and pink cymbidium orchids. A toss bouquet accented the table and we edged the cake table with orchids and lisiathus blossoms.
