Bella Intima Recap

Bella Intima was an amazing event thanks to everyone who participated, especially our vendor friends. Without you, the show wouldn’t have been such a smashing success! The day was sunny and warm and you could feel the excitement in the air throughout the day.

It all started at 8am, with vendors arriving and setting up their tables. At 1pm, the brides started arriving. Wave after wave of newly engaged couples came and enjoyed a glass of champagne in the lounge before heading through the Sunset Room, out to the gardens and then the Dessert Room.

Our models, Mylen and Priya, displayed four gorgeous dresses provided by Unique Bride, as well as custom jewelry by One World Designs, unique head pieces by Iwomdesigns, gorgeous clay bouquets made by DK Designs and four fresh bloomed bouquets created by Outburst/ Bluume (all found in the Sunset Room). The models' hair and make up were done by the amazing Taylor from thi cosmetics. When the models walked into the show floor, there were audible sighs of amazement throughout the room! It was definitely a highlight of Bella Intima!

Throughout the beautiful Allied Arts Guild were five table-top examples and two ceremony set ups for the guests to enjoy and be inspired. Upon entering the site, guests saw a ceremony set up designed by 8events, decorated by A Touch of Elegance, A Bed of Flowers, Bluume, and Cards de Luxe with music by Esther Lee. A little further off you found a wine country style table with shades of copper and browns. Across the way, the Aqua Blue and Red table popped with vibrant colors. Both these tables were decorated by 8events, Bluume, Marizette Paperie, and A Touch of Elegance with linens from Classic Party Rentals. Inside the Sunset Room, guests found a romantic pink and silver table setting and a trendy yellow and black table setting also done by 8events, Bluume, Cards de Luxe, A Touch of Elegance and Classic Party Rentals. On the way out the Sunset Room, guests were delighted by the sight of a gorgeous tablescape designed by Wildflower linens and flowers by 8events. Next to it, brides saw photos by Myrtle & Marjoram hanging down from a large tree.

In the courtyard in front of the Sunset Room, vendors such as Kiehl’s and Classic Party Rentals displayed their products. Elegant Journeys showed off one of their luxurious Rolls Royce and Cassis catering had staff serving delicious hors d'oeuvres. Guests were able to cool off with delicious frozen yogurt by Red Mango and by sitting in the fabulous lounge area supplied by Classic Party Rentals, before heading off to the Sunset Room or Dessert Room for more inspiration.

Found in the Sunset Room were Precious Memories, with a beautiful display of unique gifts for bridal parties and much more. Cards de Luxe had a cozy corner display with floral decoration by Patty Lee of 8events. The Flirty Guide had a cute and quirky set up with information on the website as well as her charity mission of Help Tami, a organization to aid in a stem cell transplant and marrow match. Photographers Michelle Walker Photography, Dorothy Hatchel, Jerry Yoon, Jennifer Skog, Tanja Lippert, Thomas Huges, and Jade Studios were showcased as well as custom hairpiece and jewelry designs by IwomDesign and One World Designs. Our DJ for the day, Nicholas Lehr from Fantasy Sound, announced our raffle prizes and provided the room with great romantic music for the day.

The Dessert Room ended up being a favorite for most of our guests, and who could blame them? With delicious delectables from La Patisserie, California Chocolate Fountain, Satura Cake, Dolce Bella Chocolate, and Studio Cake, the desserts were not to be missed! In the center of the room was a gorgeous display table with sample cakes and desserts. The table was covered with fancy linen provided by Classic Party Rentals and was under a beautiful canopy built by Miracle Chuppahs together with Snowflower Design. Other vendors in the Dessert Room were hair and makeup company, WowPretty, jewelry designer Rasbarri, photographers, FC Wong and Elley Ho, musician Daphna Rahmill and the ever popular Photobooth Royale!

In the rear courtyard, brides found two more photographers, Adi Nevo and Kevin Kramer. There was another gorgeous ceremony set up with floral decorations by Flair, linens from Napa Valley Linens, and chavari chairs by All Seasons Event Rentals. It was one of the quieter area’s at Bella Intima, but was absolutely gorgeous. Guests were able to find respite from the heat of the day in the shade of large trees and look out on a beautiful rose garden. The Allied Arts Guild was the perfect setting for such a wonderful event. The grounds are breathtaking and it was a joy to walk around and meet so many wonderful people.
