What happens when a stylist and a football player tie the knot at the Bel-Air Bay Club? Crazy beautiful things, let me tell you. With the pros of Rock Paper Details by their side, Noelle and Jermaine treated their guest to a luxury oceanside bash with timeless elegance woven into every detail. Treat yourself to a look through the gallery artfully captured by Sposto Photography.

Stylist Noelle Molezion-Smith and former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jermaine Jamison had a dream wedding to remember! This gorgeous black tie event took place at the iconic 1927 estate Bel Air Bay Club in Pacific Palisades, California.

Leaving all the details to their planners Rock Paper Details, Noelle and Jermaine got to enjoy their luxury bash in style. Their custom tablescape included everything from the wax sealed escort cards to a personalized signature scented candles for each guest to enjoy at their table. Noelle wore an amazing custom Paolo Sebastian gown while Jermaine chose a custom shawl lapel tuxedo.

The stylish couple said “I do” under a gorgeous floral arch and enjoyed cocktails overlooking the ocean with their guests shortly after. Everyone made their way inside the candlelit room for dinner and dancing courtesy of the L. A. Clippers’ in-house DJ, DJ Dense. It was an amazing night filled with classic elegance, laughter and love.

24,000 Tulips Hung Above This Reception Dance Floor!

Original Source: http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/typepad/style_me_pretty/~3/IPN1GfeuGP4/

Sapphire Events – you deserve a standing ovation for this work-of-art wedding. Inspired by the idea of a lavish secret garden party, you pulled off some incredible design feats, including an inverted garden made up of 24,000 (!!) white tulips suspended upside-down above the dance floor. And if that’s not enough to leave you speechless, just wait until you see the cake by Melissa’s Fine Pastries or carefully crafted menu from Joel Catering. This opulent soiree is one we’ll surely never forget thanks to the captures by A Bryan Photo and Studio Vieux Carre.

A behind-the-scenes look at the making of this wedding!

From Sapphire Events… Haylie and Bradley are high school sweethearts with a love for travel and entertaining. The couple fortified their long distance relationship while Bradley attended Georgetown. Bradley and Haylie reunited in South Bend, Indiana during Bradley’s law school studies at Notre Dame, where he proposed marriage on a Christmas tree farm to an unsuspecting Haylie. The couple immediately celebrated with a bottle of champagne and a night out with friends. Now they call New Orleans home and teamed up with Sapphire Events to pull off a spectacular soirée in the historic French Quarter.

Inspired by the bride’s parents’ intimate garden wedding, Sapphire Events planned a regal affair inviting guests to enjoy a ceremonious and meaningful formal garden party with charming details, traditional flair, and majestic sensibilities.

The guests’ first touchpoint for this event was a delicate and beautifully designed save-the-date with an image of the couple superimposed with the date of the event in a gilded folder encasement designed by Lehr and Black, announcing the impending nuptials in New Orleans. To follow up the grand save-the-date, guests will shortly receive a lavish suede-lined boxed invitation featuring ivory 8-ply, engraved, gilded beveled-edge invitations for events occurring over the four-day weekend celebration. 

The wedding day started with a mid-afternoon Catholic mass at the St. Louis Cathedral in the French Quarter followed by cocktails, dining, and revelry in the evening at the Old Ursuline Convent, the oldest building in the Mississippi River valley. The decor consisted of creamy white, ivory, verdant greens, patina, soft hues, natural wood tones, and gilded details.

Inspired by the notion of a secret garden party, the dancing tent revealed itself as an unexpected and imaginative continuation of the motif with an inverted garden composed of 24,000 white tulips suspended upside-down over the dance floor. The center of the installation featured an oversized, crystal chandelier, and the entire suspension was enhanced with pin spotting and directional lighting from both overhead and underneath to maximize the impact of the statement piece.

As the focal point of the dining tent, the bridal cake was served as a dramatic statement piece anchoring the celebration space. A European-style confection in dramatic scale, layers covered in delicate buttercream with a smooth finish, interspersed with layers of dense, textural florals in neutral tones, using hydrangea, roses, garden roses, spray roses, gardenias, peonies, and dendrobium orchids. 

A custom dessert display was inspired by the flagship Ladurée boutique in Paris, both in scale and structure. One solid wall featured a custom built 8’ tall by 16’ wide by 1.5’ deep Ladurée dessert display. The Dessert Suite also featured Bradley’s cake, a realistic model of Tolkein’s castle city Minas Tirith. The five-foot scale model was placed on a 60” round table draped in a sage linen. 

This was a luxury garden party to remember!
