When asked Cassandra, the Wedding Planner, was asked about the initial inspiration of Jessica and Rob’s wedding, she said it came from a pair of pants that Jessica wore on one of their first consultations. Her florescent pink pants really tipped her off that she was not only passionate but also daring. Among her many talents, Jessica is an artist, and it seemed fitting to have a custom art piece created for their wedding invitation. They commissioned Kristy of Momental Design who did an amazing job of creating a color palette that really fit the couple’s lively personalities. This wedding invitation later proved to be the connecting thread that linked all the decorative elements and created a cohesive wedding story.
Shawna Yamamoto Event Design, as always, took the ideas and inspiration and brought them to life in every possible way. The key to the event was the infusion of playful vibrant colors, while keeping the event design elegant. Both Rob and Jessica come from very welcoming and gracious families. It was important that the reception offered those same qualities. They chose Terranea Resort to have their wedding as Jessica grew up close by in Rancho Palos Verdes. Rather than just cocktail tables, they wanted lounge vignettes with comfy couches to show warm hospitality. Their tableside dinner service offered a lovely saffron seafood beggar’s purse as the first course and Kobe beef for the main entrée. They wanted the wedding to feel dynamic and one color just wouldn’t do. Shawna juxtaposed sherbet orange next to hot pink and red roses, while cooling it down with lots of lush leaves and pops of white and apricot peach. A large variety of Ecuadorian roses, garden roses, tulips, baby roses, eucalyptus leaves, succulents, and dahlias created this effervescent atmosphere. Shawna utilized the same artwork and produced life- size escort board along with darling matching table numbers.
