Honeycomb Affair - Floral Designer

Most wedding vendors specialize in one area of expertise, but we love meeting teams who can do it all! At a recent wedding in Santa Monica, we worked with the Los Angeles-based luxury botanical floral design team Honeycomb Affair, who provided all of the gorgeous floral displays adorning The Beach Club ceremony and reception areas as well as the planning services. 

Started by Christy Villasenor, Honeycomb Affair has been in business for more than six years and has supported events throughout the Southern California region and beyond. Christy's arrangements add a "fresh twist on classic wedding flowers, and embrace the narrative of every couple's love story."

Read her philosophy below:

"We believe in creating custom pieces that reflect the unique personality and style of each individual we work with, while encompassing the overall event day vision. Our work is inspired by natural elements with a love for luxury garden details. We aim to find the most special blooms and foliage that showcase color, texture, movement and depth for each arrangement. From bouquets, to dessert tables and installations, no event is too small or too large for our services. We look forward to to having the opportunity to design and create for your special day!" - Honeycomb Affair
