White and Silver Winter Wedding Wonderland — a Royal Wedding at the US Grant Hotel

Posted in: Blog, Inspiration, Latest Designs ♦ Tuesday, March 1st, 2011, 7:00 pm ♦ 1 Comment

Inspired by the soft hues of twilight against a blanket of freshly  fallen snow, this magical winter wonderland wedding day was born.

Last week happy couples from far and wide made a trip to the historic San Diego U.S. Grant Hotel to attend their 2011 “Royal Wedding” Bridal Show in which top professionals in the wedding industry were asked to design their own version of a royal affair.  Our team, led by Karen Tran Florals and Crown Weddings transformed the space into a modern day Camelot using a palette of crisp white, glistening silver and exquisite crystal details at every turn.

Simply Posh Design was delighted to contribute all stationery items including a couture bejeweled wedding invitation and luxurious menus with large crystal brooches fit for a King and Queen.  In addition, many guests left with a special gift designed by Simply Posh inviting them to Dance, Laugh and Love  during their entire wedding day by hiring a perfect team of wedding professionals to handle their event from start to finish which highlighted the talents of Crown Weddings, Karen Tran Florals, Simply Posh Design and Pam Scott Photo.

Red to Wed — Romantic Hotel Del Coronado Wedding with a Twist

Posted in: Blog, Latest Designs ♦ Friday, January 7th, 2011, 9:19 pm ♦ No Comments

When it comes to weddings, there are few things I admire more than a Bride with a bold vision and the courage to carry it out.  Thanks to Diane Brewer and her carefully kept secret of appearing not as the bride in white but rather the elegant Lady in Red,  the Hotel Del Coronado exploded with color and red hot romance the day she wed her love.

Susanne Duffy from Crown Weddings was the perfect choice to plan this romantic and vibrant day.  My favorite wedding decor designer Karen Tran created jaw-dropping florals bursting with color and a touch of whimsy with a heart shaped carpet of rose petals to greet the guests.

And who better to capture a Red wedding than Heather Moreau of Vallentyne Photography.

Simply Posh Design brought custom programs, menus, place cards and table signs to the event using their palette of amethyst and red and adding ruby swarovski crystal embellishments whenever possible.  I loved working on their wedding.  Congratulations Diane and Tim!

Preppy and Posh Beach Wedding — Jennifer and Josh

Posted in: Blog, Inspiration, Latest Designs ♦ Thursday, January 6th, 2011, 12:29 am ♦ No Comments

Jennifer and Josh Judman’s wedding included everything I adore – -a bright sunny day at the Hotel Del Coronado, stunning seaside ceremony featuring florals by Kathy Wright and Co. and pretty details at every turn for the guests to delight in.

Their wedding was designed by Susanne Duffy of Crown Weddings and included all the special touches Susanne brings to every event.  Using a palette of navy blue, crisp white, magenta and emerald green, the Hotel Del was transformed into a preppy paradise reminiscent of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel.

Simply Posh Design worked with the couple’s custom monogram and incorporated it into all their reception stationery to include bejeweled program booklets, place cards, menus and table signs.   In addition, we carried  their monogram from the printed page onto the dance floor for a special finishing touch.

Thanks to Luna Photo for capturing their day.

Congratulations Jennifer and Josh!

“Fall”ing In Love–Autumn Wedding by the Sea

When asked to provide a spectacular “Autumn Wedding,” Susanne Duffy from Crown Weddings was equal to the task.  Working with a palette of pumpkin orange, warm brown and copper tones, Crown Weddings  created a perfect wedding for Daria and Timo Weide at Loew’s Coronado Bay Resort. Drawing inspiration from the falling leaves of autumn, Simply Posh Design crafted lovely reception stationery by hand stamping berry branches and leaves to all guest menus and place cards.  Each piece was then adorned with small amber crystals to add depth and sparkle to the work.
