Martha Medeiros’ Galentine’s Day Party Featured on Love Luxe Life

900 900 Candybar Couture

What’s better than Valentine’s Day? Galentine’s Day, that is!

Our friend Martha Medeiros opened up her Melrose Avenue fashion boutique with a Galentine’s Day party that was both luxurious and chic! The party was featured on Love Luxe Life. See the full feature HERE.

“Celebrity fashion designer Martha Medeiros celebrated the grand opening of her Melrose Avenue boutique with a beautiful and luxurious Galentine’s Day party. The party exuded elegance with a stunning color palette of bold reds and blush pinks. Complete with overflowing florals and a delicious candybar by Candybar Couture, this event was super sweet for every guest! Candybar Couture is the premier source for haute couture candy and dessert bars. Their stunning buffets are a feast for the eyes and taste buds. Their candy bars are designed to be not only an interactive party favor, but also a beautiful addition to the party décor. For this event, they perfectly themed their party around love, beauty, kisses and hearts. Their dessert display left a lasting impression on the guests.
Martha Medeiros has been transforming handmade wefts, stitch by stitch, into luxurious, sought-after lace gowns for a long time. She designs and makes, together with more than 400 women, organized into cooperatives by the San Francisco river and in Northeastern hinterland the most luxurious, genuinely Brazilian lace. “Something that does not exist any longer anywhere in the world,” says the designer, referring to the fact that handmade lace is a rarity in the technological world where we live. “We have unique dresses, with handmade lace. The lace embroidered in high relief creates different textures and makes long gowns even more exclusive. Each bridal gown takes about one year to be made.” This is one of the designer’s favorite themes: dealing with dreams, building stories for the brides. In addition to custom-made dresses, the bridal line has a ready-to- wear line, with more inviting prices. The traditional french lace with high relief appliqués create a multidimensional texture, also custom-made according to the taste of each client. An outpouring of light, soft colors, such as off-white and beige tones, follows the traditional white, which is always present. The romantic quality comes with the corset shape and voluminous skirts. The contemporary mood comes with straight, clean shapes. In addition to the  whole bridal collection by designer Martha Medeiros, they can create unique, custom-made pieces for the bridesmaid, bride’s mother and flower girl.”

Hollywood Glam Inspired Wedding Featured on BrideStory

800 800 Candybar Couture

It was a pleasure being part of this styled shoot at the gorgeous Fighouse LA. Take a look at the inspiration and photos from our candybar below!

Find the full feature here.

“This stunning modern Hollywood glam wedding photo shoot coordinated by ROQUE Events was set in the sweet + warm winter months of Los Angeles. A compilation of ritzy red, soft peach, sweet coral and pops of gold radiated at the mid-century modern venue, The Fig House, and it felt super luxurious and rich.

It was very important to create a complete wedding from the moment the bride walked down the aisle to say ‘I Do’, to enjoying perfectly paired ‘his + her’ specialty cocktails with their wedding party prepared by Pharmacie, a glamorous dinner by roomforty to follow and sharing memorable moments cutting their ultra modern cake.

The holiday inspired white lacquer serpentine dining table from Revelry Event Design did not disappoint as it showcased, powerful gold accents, plush dining chairs, wood chargers, sleek plateware, gold + white flatware, ruby red water goblets, ornate crystal Champagne flutes, lush red floral arrangements from Eddie Zaratsian and custom poppy colored menus from Maude Press decorated with bright red velvet ribbon.

This 360 ceremony set up brought an ultra chic vibe for the bride + grooms nuptials. With gold and grey simple elegance there was not a bad seat in the house. The wedding party was made up of stunning glam squad bridesmaids and GQ-esque groomsmen. The bride and groom were classic and timeless with a long sleeve lace gown and polished burgundy tuxedo.”
