Modern Spring Glam – Chic Black & White Tablescape at The University Club Atop Symphony Towers


Get inspired and jump start spring into full swing with our French Inspired Modern Spring Glam Photo shoot at The University Club Atop Symphony towers! This chic set up was inspired by an elegant mix of modern glam interior design and french inspiration similar to that of Chanel Spring 2010 Ready to Wear runway show all masterfully translated into one beautifully styled tablescape.

Our designer Wynn Austin of Wynn Austin Events teamed up with floral and event stylist Aileen Tran to create a chic, French-influenced styled shoot with Joseph Matthew Photography. They chose San Diego’s University Club overlooking San Diego Bay and executed their modern-chic vision flawlessly.

Soft feminine touches in the floral design created a striking balance for the venue’s minimalistic interior. “The University Club is very modern with clean lines, “ said Wynn Austin. “We created a table that complemented the venue, focusing on just black and white, with the softness showing in the florals.” Textured linens provided a luxurious setting for gold-rimmed stemware and black candelabra, squared vases and classic white votives. White floral arrangements set at varying heights included anemone, freesia, amaryllis, ranunculus, tulips, roses, orchids and lilies, wrapped in black satin ribbon. Immaculate lucite menus from Rachel Jane Couture were individually etched with each guest’s name. Concepts Event Design and Classic Party Rentals provided rentals and furniture, including clear acrylic chairs and silver chargers.

Tea with E at The Langham Huntington in Pasadena, California

I have to admit that working in the wedding industry does have some major perks! And once in a while, I get to attend such a fabulous party that it takes my breath away! The other week, I had the opportunity to go to The Langham Huntington in Pasadena, California for a Royal Tea Party Hosted by Eddie Zaratsian, owner of celebrity florists Tic Toc Couture Florals. The details and decor at the party was gorgeous! It was a vintage french provence inspired theme with so many amazing furniture and details yet it looked so comfortable and welcoming. The textures consists of linen, burlap combined with the colors of white, honeysuckle and coral. The colors of the florals and the designs were so unique and gorgeous. I was definitely spoiled and enjoyed having high tea and soaking in the decor. There was live entertainment, an amazing photobooth, a buffet de fleurs, and dessert so beautiful I felt guilty eating them!

I owe this experience, all to my fabulous friend Thomas Bui who was the one that brought me as his guest to this event. Once in a while you meet someone, and instantly you just know that you will end up being good friends. Thomas and I met and just clicked right away. He is one of the sweetest and most generous people I know. Let’s just say, “He had me at hello!”

Here is a picture of Thomas and I in the photobooth!

The Buffet De Fleurs is such a unique concept, and I think would be so much fun either for a wedding or even a bridal shower!  Tic Toc Couture Florals had their artists create custom hair pieces out of flowers that match the guests outfits.  How cute would this be??
