Event Planning & Design
It takes a special blend of creativity, organization, artistry, vision, and personality to become a successful planner and event designer within the luxury wedding industry. Throughout the years, we have featured many incredible planners and designers who excel at producing unforgettable celebrations, while maintaining their own signature style and approach. With so many couples opting for destination weddings, the logistical aspect of planning and design is another factor to work around; but these wedding planners and event designers still produce flawless work.
These editorial features highlight some of the world’s most talented and in-demand artists who are renowned for everything, from luxury floral design to planning multi-day weddings for more than a thousand guests. Golf Srithamrong of Tantawan Bloom, for example, is a luxury floral and event designer who Grace Ormonde herself has long referred to as, “The King of Love and Orchids.” His use of orchids is simply uncontested, and his exotic floral designs perfectly allude to his Thailand roots, while also being aesthetically relevant to luxury weddings all around the world.
Sometimes, it’s a designer’s approach to the creative process that makes them stand out. For White Lilac Inc.’s founder, Sunny Ravanbach, her initial ideas for wedding décor come from her client’s outfit during their first meeting. “The colors they come in wearing are the colors they want for their event,” she explains. “When you have someone walking in with Swarovski and Louboutin, you know they’re going to want something extravagant. My inspiration comes from my clients, because they have a vision and it’s our job to interpret it.”
Jeff Leatham, Preston Bailey, and Colin Cowie are three household names that are synonymous with the luxury wedding and event industry; so naturally, their work has been featured in Wedding Style on numerous occasions. This editorial section is dedicated to highlighting the best in the business, but also sharing the stories of these talented individuals in their own words. In order for couples to find the perfect planners and event designers for their own special day, they must understand the people behind the brand and what inspires their work. We hope you enjoy getting to know some of these phenomenal artists and gain some inspiration along the way.
