Our Emerald Underworld Welcome Party was designed by the ever so lovely (and humble!) Gloria Wong Design. I seriously wished I could have sent her flying into the tent like an acrobat when I acknowledged her at my opening speech, because she so deserved that ultra special spotlight. But, she really would have killed me, because she so prefers to stay under the radar. I have never met someone so incredibly talented, yet SO modest and humble! It's hard not to love Gloria Wong, because she is one of the sweetest, most genuine person you will ever meet.
Gloria did such a phenomenal job designing the Emerald Underworld party, which was held inside a tent on the terrace of The St. Regis San Francisco. For months, she worked diligently with Hartmann Studios, Enhanced Lighting, Peculiar Pair Press, and Asiel Design to transform the tent into a sexy, sultry, 'underworld' with black beaded drapery, geometric patterned pendants, Fu lions, and so many other fabulous details. It was fun to watch people's jaw drop when they first entered the tent, greeted by these sexy models wearing dresses from Bella Bridesmaid and jewelry from Naomi King.
My favorite part of event planning is the production process, and I loved being able to partake in the transformation of the tent, from the carpet installation to the velon ceiling liner to the chiffon wall drapes....and then all of the details being put into place, one by one.
