A Moroccan-Inspired Lounge

“Meet us in Marrakesh” was a Moroccan-Inspired Lounge created at Vibiana for CWD Best of 2017 awards. Designed by Events by Robin, this lounge featured a plethora of colors, textures, and patterns through two stunning vignettes that reflected colorful Morocco.  One lounge showcased vibrant colors and florals while the other was crisp and white with gold accents and cream colored florals by Eddie Zaratsian and Tic-Tock Florals. Palm trees were added to frame the lounge.

Chef Neal Fraser crafted a decadent Moroccan cuisine that consisted of Couscous, Golden Raisins and Almonds, Lamb Tagine with Oranges and Apricots, Chicken Bastilla and Green Chickpea and Tomato Salad. The specialty cocktail was a Tangier Julep Bourbon, Lime, Mint Tea and Rose Water

Amalfi Coast-Inspired Lounge and Reception Setting

An Amalfi Coast-Inspired Lounge and Reception Setting, “La Vita e Bella” was created at Vibiana for California Wedding Day’s Best of 2017 gala. With direction from Marisa Nicole Events  the Amalfi-inspired design brought together varying textures and drew from a palette of blue, white, and green also featuring gold accents. Beautiful floral arrangements by The Little Branch  added a pop of color to lounging areas and dining tables while lush greenery and lights hung above.

A signature Amalfi cocktail was served, the Capri Sun featuring Our/Los Angeles Vodka, aperol, limoncello and fresh lemos. Guests feasted on antipasto spread of salumi and formaggio, charred eggplant puree, white bean puree with Calabrian chili, marinated funghi, ancient grains with grilled grape leaves, asparagus and mozzarella perlini, roasted summer vegetables, mostarda and assorted bread/grissini.

California Wedding Day Best of 2017

We were honored to host California Wedding Day Best of 2017 “Trip Around The World” themed award ceremony and reception.

The evening was a great success. More than 500 people were in attendance.  Upon arrival, guests were greeted by ladies in retro flight attendant uniforms in our courtyard where the award ceremony was held.  Vibiana was named “Best  LA Indoor Venue.”

In the main hall, an image of the Eiffel Tower was projected onto the white walls and warm lighting was used throughout. Specialty cocktails and flavorful appetizers were served.  Areas of Vibiana were uniquely transformed by different design elements: Meet Us in Marrakesh,  a Moroccan-inspired lounge, Almafi Coast lounge and reception, and finally, London Calling: 1960’s British Invasion.
