Solene & Sanketh

Solene & Sanketh hosted the most romantic, floral filled, engagement party at the historic Filoli Gardens.

The Details

With only three months to plan and execute their whole celebration, Solene reached out to me to bring together a luxury and romantic engagement party that truly wowed all their guests! We had so many fun details at this event; a welcome entry with golden butterflies floating above, a welcome floral installation where all guests took photos, an interactive cocktail wall where guests rang a bell and received a signature drink, a seating chart wall with doll-house chairs that showed guests where to sit, a bespoke invitation suite, and a canopy of twinkle lights! Florals were a top priority for Solene so I knew I needed to partner with LC Floral. Her designs filled the space with enchanting and whimsical arrangements.

It was a colorful and unique celebration that I was eternally grateful to be a part of.

The event turned out even better than I had imagined and it is all due to Elise.

I hired Elise and her team to do my last-minute large Indian engagement party at Filoli and I am so incredibly lucky to have worked with her. I only started planning the event a couple of months beforehand and even though so many vendors were already booked for that day Elise managed to put together an amazing team of florists, caterers, decor, musicians, etc. The event turned out even better than I had imagined and it is all due to Elise. Elise is absolutely incredible to work with and she manages to make even the most large-scale intricate processes seem easy. Here are a few highlights of my experience working with her: – Creativity: I really wanted to wow my guests at the event and Elise is an incredibly creative person and within 5 minutes of brainstorming she is able to come up with wildly creative ideas. She will come up with design ideas that are truly unique (for seating charts, drink walls, etc.) that your guests will not have seen anywhere else. Her designs are truly bespoke. – Attention to detail: Elise will go to venues and vendor showrooms with a tape measure in hand and she maps out layouts with precision so there are no surprises and she makes sure to make the best use of any venue space Sustainability – Having a sustainable event mattered a lot to me but at the same time I didn’t want to massively increase costs and Elise was able to do that for me Great attitude: Elise is one of the calmest people I have ever met and she is definitely a soothing presence which is great when you are dealing with event planning stress. Also she is really great about listening to what you want and working hard to achieve it. Lots of planners will try to push their own aesthetics onto their clients but Elise is absolutely incredible at listening to your vision and then working to make it happen. She is an absolute dream to work with.
