Wedding Trend: The Ombre Effect

July 30th, 2012 by Karen Pan | Comment

The ombre effect has been hitting the wedding scene by storm and is now one of the hottest trends. Ombre is french for shaded and the effect refers to the romantic watercolor look when soft, pale hues gradually progress into full, vibrant shades.  If you envision having a very chic and whimsy wedding, this multicolor gradient look is a perfect addition to your decor. It can be incorporated in just about any part of your wedding from the bridesmaids dresses to the centerpieces. Here are some great ideas to inspire your own ombre effect!

Sakura and Gelston: September 11, 2010

December 17th, 2010 by Karen Pan | Comment

I’m so excited to finally share this wedding with you! This past year, I had the pleasure of helping Sakura and Gelston plan and design their entire wedding. After months and months of planning, every detail of their wedding became so personal to me. The lovely couple envisioned an elegant, traditional and intimate wedding with their closest family and friends. We chose the magnificent Kohl Mansion in Burlingame as their backdrop and incorporated a palette of blush pink, soft violet and cream to set the tone for a romantic evening. Sakura means cherry blossom in Japanese and we scattered this motif throughout their decor. The guests danced through the night to a live jazz band that resembled the Ella Fitzgerald era. The highlight was a surprise by Sakura’s mom who performed a Japanese dance for the couple in a stunning traditional attire. The day was absolutely perfect and I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful couple to celebrate it with! Congratulations or in Japanese, Omedetou, you love birds!
