Planning Megan and Darren’s wedding was nothing short of dreamy. She’s the kind of bride that you wish every bride could be like–the most genuine, sweet yet smart and sensible woman. Megan also has impeccable taste–so we were excited when she shared her vision with us, because we knew we could make it spectacular. After about 8 months of planning and designing, Megan and Darren wed on a beautiful summer evening at Marbella Country Club in San Juan Capistrano, California. With a ceremony on the lawn and an elegant reception at the club, guests were mesmerized by the transformation of the club and the beautiful floral, amazing food and intricate wedding cake. Best of all, Megan and Darren’s sweet hearts and amazing love shined through with every detail. These two will always remain near and dear to our hearts!

From warehouse to wonderland! This Napa Valley wedding wins the award for biggest transformation we’ve done yet! When bride-to-be Megan Balestra came to us with a tractor warehouse for a canvas, we knew we needed to paint pretty! After 9 months of planning and designing, the Christie Rose team knocked it out of the park. The warehouse was transformed into a wonderland, and Megan and Cody had their dream wedding in the serene fields of wine country.
When we first met Nora, we loved her sweet personality and her love of all things beautiful. She’s the kind of bride that you can see right into her beautiful soul–and when she described her dream wedding to us, we already had it designed in our heads. We loved Nora because they completely trusted us to create their dream wedding! She didn’t even need to come to the floral or design meetings, because she had so much faith in what we would choose. As wedding designers, that’s the ultimate compliment from a bride! Most brides need guidance and help generating ideas, but they still want to be at every meeting! Nora was an angel of a bride, so when we met Nader, we were not surprised to find that this guy is the ULTIMATE gentlemen, and quite frankly, an amazing human being. They were a delight to work with from beginning until end, and we will always remain good friends with these two special people!
Their wedding took place at the SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills. They chose the color of royalty (purple) and every detail in the design was absolutely perfect. We had 8,000 crystal and satin bands hanging from the ceiling which was quite the installation! The SLS was so great to allow us to come in days before hand to make the room picture perfect!
