A Glamorous Wedding Reception at Leonard’s Palazzo

This historical landmark in the heart of downtown is the perfect setting for an unforgettable evening.

The Client’s Vision

Event design is all about creating a certain atmosphere or mood. For this particular event, the bride was going for an elegant, upscale spring atmosphere in the middle of the summer. The chosen color palette of white, blush pink, bright pink, and lilac was inspired by the bride’s love of cherry blossoms. Hints of gold were used as accents to give the event an extra touch of luxury. Our event design team did an excellent job of bringing the bride’s vision to life and creating a beautiful event space that reflected her style.


Event design is all about creating a space that is both visually stunning and functional. For many event designers, this means incorporating a mix of real and artificial flowers. Real flowers add natural beauty to any space, while artificial flowers can be used to fill in gaps or add pops of color. In this event design, a mix of natural and artificial flowers was used to create a cohesive look. Real white hydrangeas, white roses, pink roses, pink spray roses, and eucalyptus leaves were combined with artificial cherry blossom branches and phalaenopsis orchids. The result was a beautiful event space that was both stylish and inviting. A great benefit of choosing Elegantize Productions as your event design company is that we have our florals in-house; there is no need to contact a separate company for your flower arrangements. Contact us today or visit our website to start designing your next event with us!.

Custom-Made Pieces

Event design is creating a specific look and feel to suit the occasion. We wanted to create a luxurious and elegant atmosphere for this event, so we used blush pinks, lilacs, and creamy white as the primary colors, with gold as the perfect accent for these spring colors. Gold, if appropriately used, can be an elegant and sophisticated accent to a design. We started with custom metallic gold shelving, then added gold vases and geometric terrariums. To make the shelves pop, we covered them with artificial cherry blossoms, giving the impression that they had grown over the shelves. The overall effect was stunning and exactly what we were going for. When it comes to flowers, event designers have a few different options. They can choose to use fresh flowers, artificial flowers, or a combination of both. We decided to use fresh and artificial flowers for this wedding reception. The cherry blossoms, being the event’s main feature, were created with curly willow branches and mountain laurels with artificial blossoms attached. The artificial cherry blossom trees were then prepped and transported to the event, and the fresh floral centerpieces were made using flower foam and fresh flower stems. By using fresh and artificial flowers, we created a beautiful and unique event space that was sure to impress guests.


Florals and Greenery

Florals and greenery create cohesive designs and fill the room with a beautiful aroma. We used purple hydrangeas, pink phalaenopsis orchids, coral roses, purple roses, and purple dendrobium orchids. These flowers complimented each other so well and created lush designs that filled the room with a fresh floral aroma, while still complimenting the colors of the soft lighting and greenery.


Lighting can play a crucial role in setting the tone for an event. For this particular event, we used

Wireless LED lights to illuminate the lush greenery and custom trees. We also used copper string lights along the greenery backdrop to add a delicate lighting touch.
