A private dinner at the Four Seasons Los Angeles was the perfect example of event lighting Los Angeles style. The show stopper event was a collaboration between designers Nikki Khan of Exquisite Events, Jeff Leatham and Edgar Zamora from Revelry Event Designers. Working with Jennifer Rebello of Four Seasons LA, Nikki’s idea for the evening was to start the cocktail hour at Jeff’s studio at the luxury hotel, then have the guests escorted upstairs for the Four Seasons’ Wetherly Terrace for a sit-down dinner.
For the dinner portion of the evening, our lighting set the mood for a romantic evening meant to evoke modern Parisian sensibilities. The color palette was black and gold accented by flowers in a range of fuchsia and hot pink. The details on the tables were pure decadence and ultra sophisticated. Provided by Borrowed Blu, a layering of beautiful gold chargers with gold and black dinner plates was augmented with black and gold flatware and gold-rimmed stemware. Wildflower Linen custom designed a napkin with a black-and-white geometric design. The menus were designed as booklets and finished with the guests’ names hand written by Calligraphy Katrina. After a three-course meal, the final detail — a French chanteuse — made the illusion of Paris in Los Angeles simply “parfait!”
