A British-Inspired Lounge

The British-inspired lounge at the California Wedding Day Best of 2017 brought visitors back to 1960s London. Kristeen Labrot Events and  Lotus and Lily Floral Design collaborated to create a space full of bold designs, abstract shapes, and bright colors. The lounge also featured vintage furniture popular during the 1960s. Drawing on the cultural sensation of the “British Invasion,” the designers focused on the music and fashion popular during this era which included artists such as David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, and the Fashion Icon Twiggy.

Guests enjoyed the signature cocktail known as the Crown Jewel which was made with Pomp & Whimsy Gin Liqueur, Cointreau, Dry Vermouth, Strawberries, and Cucumbers. The London-inspired feast included salt roasted beets and fava salad with farmer’s cheese and lemon oil, chef-carved roast beef, duck fat roasted potatoes with rosemary, and curried rainbow carrots. Dessert was provided by Fantasy Frostings and included tasty treats such as donuts, cupcakes, and cake pops.

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.
