Verandas in Manhattan Beach

This is a great location to have both your ceremony and reception. The fact that you have multiple rooms to host your event, gives you the room to create a romantic and fun atmosphere. The downstains is perfect for an intimate dinning setting. Upstairs is great for a cozy and lounge like area. Perfect for the dancing half of your event. The balcony is a great area to sneak away from your guest for a romantic time out, that overlooks Maanhattan Beach. All of Verandas staff are very easy to work with as well as helpful. This event was coordinated by Kesha Knighten Hughes of Papillon Events.

glitz, glitz and more glitz

Shaheen married on January 24, 09 had a two day event. Her reception on Sunday January 25Th at the New Port Dunes, was another full day of celebration. We incorporated tons of crystals. From crystal chuppahs, crystal draped tables, to crystal trees. This was a Platinum Wedding of its own.

The crystal chuppah was designed by ours truly, Mars, and starts at $1,500.00. The crystal trees are available in 4ft, (pricing starts at $80.00)and 8ft trees start at $200.00. If your info major bling and plan to have a over the top wedding or quinceanera. this is definitely the way to go!!!! ;)

White wedding at home

Our bride Renee got married in her sisters home in Northridge Ca. They had about 100 guest and they choose to go with the classic all white theme. Which was not only easy to work with, but it was a a challenge to try and not make this October wedding too much on the winter white theme. We set up a simple yet elegant arch for their ceremony. It had white organza draped along the bamboo post. Very light dendro orchids and crystals draped from the arch for a elegant finish. There were lounge style white benches for their wedding party to sit and look pretty during the ceremony.

The floral, I put a variety of different white flowers onto the cocktail tables (which were draped in white satin) that had crystals sprinkled along the table. The pool was surrounded by tall glass cylinders with floating candles. The event ran smoothly with the help of coordinator Brandi Smith of High Society Event planning.

Through out cocktail hour and the reception, everyone mingled and enjoyed the fine catering of 24 carrots. Listening to the loungy and sophisticated club like music, which created a high end club like feel. Everything was absolutely breath taking. Everyone at FLOWERSONMARS had a ball contributing to Renee and Robbies big day.
