REAL STORIES: A Modern Black and Gold Mitzvah

April 2, 2013

Although temporarily overshadowed by a period of silver, chrome and nickel, GOLD has made a triumphant comeback in the design world. The cultured and regal aesthetic of this vibrant precious metal has proven to be timeless and enduring in its appeal. Particularly when we can turn it up a notch {or two or three} and take it to glamorous heights for a chic bar mitzvah celebration at The Rittenhouse. With a modern palette of metallic gold, glossy black and crisp white, we transformed the Grand Ballroom into a contemporary lounge setting that both adults and kids enjoyed.
First things first, we draped the walls with rich black velvet drape and placed a large sexy bar right in the middle of the room. From there, orbiting like planets around the Gold Bar, we installed a custom dance floor, a variety of furniture groupings for cozy seating vignettes and various trendy food stations. Yet another incredible celebration that was designed around the client’s wish for “something different” and “something fabulous”…

BE MINE: If Love is a Flower

February 11, 2013


If Love is a Flower

love is endless
like flowers that keep on blossoming day and night
love is beautiful
like flowers with different different colors
love is growing
like flowers abundant in the garden
love is to give away
like flowers from my hand to yours.

REAL STORIES: A Pink & Black Rittenhouse Hotel Wedding for Lindsey & Andrew

October 26, 2010

We don’t know what to love more with this sweet pink and black wedding – the bride’s Monique LHuillier gown, the bridemaids’ sassy party frocks or the beaming smiles of the bride and groom.  We’re thinking there may be too many lovely details to pick just one!  But looking back at Lindsey and Andrew’s day through Faith West’s stunning photos tells the story far better than we can.
