Meet Our Intern Monday!


We’ve been busy bees at Wedding Elegance, so we hired a Social Media & Events Intern to help with the workload. Meet Linda K. our cute as a button intern!

She started interning with Wedding Elegance in July and has since attended a tasting session, dress rehearsal, AND assisted with a wedding the day of! Not only has she been “out in the field,” but she’s also been working on maintaining our Pinterest and blog. Here’s some more awesomeness about Linda!

Why did you want to go to into wedding/event planning?

Wedding planning has always been an interest to me because of the aesthetic process and detail that goes into planning and executing the event. I would love to learn more about wedding planning in ethnic weddings from start to finish and grow my creativity from the different aspects of wedding planning from invitations, to color themes, decorative pieces and other design aspects. I am also a hopeless romantic at heart so weddings have always fascinated me since I was a young girl. :)

What are you studying at school and what are you hoping to do after you graduate?
I am currently studying Visual Arts – Media at the University of California, San Diego. Following graduation, I would love to work for an advertising, branding design and marketing agency that would help clients and companies promote their business and ideas. I would also like to take some time off following school and travel to Europe particularly Greece.
What has been your favorite part of your internship so far?
My favorite part of the internship would definitely have to be working with the social media aspect of wedding planning and design. It’s always refreshing and an inspiration to see what  new ideas wedding planners bring to the table. I also enjoy seeing the end product of a wedding design and idea come to life.

Mod Romance Goes Uptown


Here at Wedding Elegance, it’s all about the “Wow!” factor. We were proud to be a part of the annual US Grant 2012 Wedding Showcase: Love, Etc. this past weekend to demonstrate just that! Hundreds of attendees were treated to the latest in bridal trends, sensational entertainment, and spectacular event design.

This showcase was a great opportunity to roll up our sleeves and create something eye-catching and luxurious that has never been seen before. The basic idea was centered around the romance of bold pink and vibrant red hues and the extravagance of gold and silver.

As you can see in the inspiration board below, this design was heavily influenced by the latest and richest trends in fashion, particularly fur; and was in turn balanced with modern, clean lines for a sophisticated effect.

We were privileged enough to collaborate with the fabulous Shawna Yamamoto, famous for her chic and cutting edge style,  to create this stunning event design featured at the showcase. Her one-of-a-kind florals and backdrops infused a rich, exotic feel to this Mod lounge-style design.

And then, the design was brought to life!

Sumptuous florals were flanked by matted metallic vases standing atop reflective boxes. The china was carefully selected and paired with silver chargers and fine linens for a sophisticated effect. Lush cushions added a more intimate atmosphere to a set of lounge furniture. Finally, the lighting tied it all together and brought you “Mod Romance Goes Uptown.”

The end result was a showstopping lounge setting dripping in vibrant color and a sultry touch of romance. From the fur table runner to the brightly polished silver to the recurring owl motif, brides were stunned by the intricacy of Nahid’s beautifully executed vision.

Thanks to all of you who came out and joined us! For fabulous design and styling ideas for your wedding or next social event, call Nahid! ;)
