Idyllwild Event Design
Purveyors of Pretty
Idyllwild Events is for lovers who believe in creating exquisite experiences for their community. We focus on couples who seek a tailored design concept that's worthy of their union. Our passion for design and our planning expertise help the whimsical and wild-hearted envelop their tribe in laid-back luxury.
We offer a variety of services to meet your needs. You can read a bit about them here, but don't hesitate to contact us for more information.
Full Service Event Design
Idyllwild Events has a finely tuned eye for the stunning and unique. We love hunting high and low for the perfect details to elevate your event, transforming it from an everyday gathering to a captivating celebration that's emblematic of your love. From inspiration to execution, we bring your ideas to life with our styling and design services.
Our Full-service clients receive:
an initial estimate based on your projected needs
access to our entire inventory of props, vessels, and accent items
consultations at benchmark planning points with inspiration boards and a detailed design plan included
ongoing design advice about floral, decor, stationery, textiles and more
access to all of our vendor resources, connections, and discounts
a site visit if necessary, which we coordinate
a trip to the flower market to see your floral options (subject to seasonal availability)
set up of your event so you can focus on getting married
breakdown and load-out following your event
a senior team member to personally oversee the setup of your event and collaborate with your logistical planner
(For certain dates and venues, we have a coordinator in-house for an additional fee. Just ask!)
Most importantly, we maintain an open dialogue with you and your vendors throughout the planning phase.
Fine Art Floral
Our design aesthetic is gestural and organic, with a "grown-in" feel reminiscent of Dutch still-life paintings. Texture, color, and line are the hallmarks of an Idyllwild floral creation. We respect errant tulips and wayward vines for their sense of adventure! We also love nature (and we hope you do, too), so we typically feature greenery in a prominent way. We keep it loose and garden-like, but never "weedy".
Drop-off Service: If you plan to engage us for Full-service Design, you can expect a lot of excited talk about flower varieties, vessels, candles, and tabletop looks. But that's not for everyone, so we can also do a simple Drop-off order for your event. For Drop-off, we do a quick phone consultation to discuss needs and budget, send you a quote, and your pieces are waiting for you at your venue- no fuss, no muss. You then allow your venue or vendor team to set up your Idyllwild items. There's less design flexibility here, but you get to keep all of the floral arrangements. This is a great choice if you just want some quick and easy pieces.
An Epic Adventure
We're very pleased to announce that starting in 2020, we will be offering day-of/month-of coordination for select dates and venues. It's been a long-time dream of ours to be able to offer one-stop event planning and design, and coordination is the final piece of the puzzle. We look forward to taking care of all of your event details, from timeline creation to vendor management to running your wedding rehearsal. This service is offered in tandem with Full-service Design, so you won't have to worry about a thing.
Installations, Custom Builds & Specialty Rentals
It would be our absolute pleasure to build a custom backdrop or installation for your event. Please, please, please ask us to build your doughnut wall, giant hexagon backdrop, or hanging installation of clothespins. Whatever you've got in mind, just share it with us! We're in our element doing custom work. Our favorite part of designing your event is problem-solving with you!
Drop us a line and we'll talk about your needs, budget, design, and logistics. We'll need to grab some specialized info in order to provide a quote for your project.
Specialty Rentals: While we reserve our top-tier vintage and custom-built inventory for our Full-service Design clients, drop-off clients still have access to some of our inventory on an a la carte rental basis. (This requires an additional breakdown fee.) Because every event and venue is different, we would need to provide a custom quote for rentals and their associated breakdown fees. Sorry, at this time we do not rent one-off items. You'll need to book rental package based on your consultation.
About Idyllwild Event Design
I'm Jasmin, the founder and lead designer for Idyllwild Event Design. Technically, Idyllwild was founded in January of 2018, just after my husband and I welcomed our daughter. I thought if I was already growing one baby, why not go for two? I'd been designing weddings on the side and freelancing with event companies for a couple of years (ever since we began designing our own mountain nuptials), and the timing just seemed right. Plus, I had a fabulous set of clients lined up- just the best clients ever- and we've always been the type to seize the moment.
But Idyllwild Event Design really had it's beginnings way back in 1995 when my mom- who'd lovingly handmade every one of my Halloween costumes for 15 years- finally decided to retire. She took me shopping for some fabric, agreed to thread her Kenmore sewing machine "only once", and told me not to ask any questions; just figure it out. I've been "figuring" ever since. From making my own wedding dress to rebuilding an off-grid Catskills farm from scratch, I just can't say no to a creative puzzle, and I've been blessed with the best adventure buddy to solve them with- my husband!
By learning to "just say yes" to problem-solving opportunities, forming strategic partnerships over the years, and trusting that still, small voice inside, we’ve gone on so many fearless escapades. By saying "yes" to life, we've managed to manifest a happy, creative and fulfilling existence, and I long to share the fruits of our discoveries with other creative couples who are just beginning their journey. I hope you’ll let me and my growing team plan an absolutely arresting event for you. You won’t regret it.
