“bohemian chic” – a current wedding trend

Bohemian Chic is quickly catching the eye of many brides. “Outdoorsy” & informal, this style includes loose, flowing hair styles, natural floral and rustic furniture. This new trend is definitely one to look out for and can set the vibe for a UNIQUE and DISTINCTIVE wedding ambiance.

Letter pressed invitations on handmade papers with a woodsy look set the tone for a Boho Chic wedding.

CCF Entry 2 Final

themed parties that ENCHANT and EXCITE the senses

Parties with themes are FUN to attend and CHALLENGING to create, especially when the theme elements are designed to be SUBTLY and UNIQUELY presented. At Levine Fox Events, we strive to create a party environment where the theme comes alive in unexpected ways.  No theme is too challenging.  First we come up with a list of elements that pertain to the theme at hand and creatively incorporate them into the party’s decor and design: the following photos are some examples from our past events . . . .

The Entry Design: The use of vignettes is a great way to present the theme at the party’s entrance.  These decor statements whet the guests’ appetites and encourage them to go inside and  see more of what the party’s theme might be.

ALL ABOUT FLOWERS – OUR FAVORITE SUBJECT!

Beauty, Bride and Bloom

Eclectic wedding floral arrangements sing in spring

For original article, please click here!

“Floral designers are using texture and color in ways they have never done in the past.” Alyson Fox, Levine Fox Events

Flowers are an essential element in nuptial ceremonies and have been for centuries — either for their sheer beauty, to help ward off evil spirits or to simply act as a good luck talisman for the bride and groom. Today, floral designers and event planners are finding some exquisite trends in full bloom.

“Flowers never go out of style,” said Jennifer McGarigle, owner of Floral Art in Venice, “but the way they are arranged can look dated.” She pointed out that a long, cascading Princess Diana bouquet “would not exactly be hip or modern” and that “curly willow coming out of an arrangement and reaching to the sky would be way over the top” at a wedding today. Instead, McGarigle, who is known for her sleek, modern aesthetic, likes to blend flowers with textured materials to create a fine balance.“It depends on the mood or look you are going for,” she said.  For a bride with an eclectic style, McGarigle will blend earthy textures with modern or vintage elements — such as lamb’s ear, poppy pods and English garden roses with vintage bottles and antique mirrors. For a bride who is sleek and elegant, she might mix modern mirrors and clear acrylic pieces with all-white gardenias and garden roses for a translucent elegance. “Two different looks, both beautiful,” she said.

According to Colin Cowie, celebrity event planner, author and founder of Colin Cowie Weddings the trend is toward diversity.  “Arrangements are a bit looser, more organic and eclectic in feel,” he said. “Brides are focused on giving their wedding a very personalized look, and bouquets — especially for summer weddings — have more of that ‘just picked, freshly cut from the garden’ flair.”

what could be MORE BEAUTIFUL . . . . than an elegantly appointed “head table”?

Why a head table?

More and more brides and grooms are opting for head tables at their weddings these days. There are many reasons head tables are a perfect addition to a wedding reception!

Head tables provide the perfect seating option for the bride and groom so that they can enjoy the festivities during their reception while sitting together with close friends!

In the past, proper etiquette for head table seating was strictly enforced and included the bride, groom and only the specific guests who were members of the wedding party.  Now, we encourage our brides and grooms to seat their wedding party together with each’s significant other so that no couples are separated and everyone has a great time! Then family members from the wedding party can be seated elsewhere along with their close relatives and/or friends.
