The AGA team designed and created these huge paintstick “chandeliers”. It took just about 1,000 paintsticks to make the vision come to life!

We decorated this already existing “library” at the Washbow with some lounge furniture by Rrivre Works and incredible florals by Petals and Pop! Check out the sliding ladder in the back! The hanging Edison bulb chandelier took this whole space to the next level!

As an incredible venue, The Resort at Pelican Hill was the perfect canvas to make Erin & Matt’s dream wedding come to life! With bold cobalt blue and cool silver accents, Erin & Matt’s wedding design was so multifaceted and unique that it is one of our favorites ever! We wanted to highlight all the design aspects and subtle details that made this gorgeous wedding extraordinary!!

With mirrored elements, upholstered dining chairs, seamless white dance floor, and a custom monogram… we tied it all together in modern sophistication.

~Traditional Christmas~

Wednesday, December 25th, 2013

Bringing the spirit of a true traditional Christmas into your home involves a few key pieces that we’re sure are pretty inescapable this holiday season: plush red, shimmering silver, gold, evergreens…and more gold. Certain traditions have stayed tried and true over the years like tree toppers, stockings and poinsettias adorning every corner of the house. These days, however, we’ve seen more modern interpretations of Christmas classics that we were happy to share on Pinterest! From trendy typographic messages to classic Christmas wreathes, we’ve got you covered on all Traditional Christmas decor. We hope that this Christmas Day you are enjoying in your own traditions of Christmas, enjoying the old and maybe creating some new!

Did you decide to go with the Woodland Christmas trend this year? Or maybe stuck to a Vintage holiday style?
Whatever your inspirations… make it a memorable holiday with your loved ones!

~Vintage Christmas~

Tuesday, December 24th, 2013

Christmas is often a time we all look back and relive the warm and fuzzy memories of our past and of our time with family & relatives. In our Vintage Christmas inspired design, we love seeing all the things that bring back those memories… from family heirlooms to well-loved ornaments, your vintage Christmas can be anything you dream. Good ol’ St. Nick can doesn’t have to be in his red coat and white fleece cuffs, but more a throw back to olden times where he is more a Nordic gentleman. Happy colors of vibrant greens and festive reds, along with the assorted mix of other bright colors make any vintage Christmas design fun and memorable!

Want something a bit more trendy this year? Check out our Woodland inspired holiday design!

What vintage elements can you add to your Christmas decor?

~Woodland Christmas~

Monday, December 23rd, 2013

Happy Holidays from Team AGA! We’re busy pinning and planning for the upcoming holiday festivities and we wanted to share some of our latest inspiration with you all. We’re falling in love with rich dark wood, bright greens and of course, deep red cranberry & apple hues. We love the idea of bringing the rustic holiday theme indoors by utilizing pine cones, bark and candles to create breathtaking centerpieces and garland. Looking for a place to snag these holiday decor must-haves? Try your local craft stores or make friends with the neighborhood Christmas tree vendors (they have plenty of extra wood and branches that they would rather give away than haul around!)

We love weddings and parties… obviously. And we focus so much energy, time and care into our clients’ weddings and events… our own fun celebrations are usually put on the back burner for a while.

And at last, we were so happy to have our Tustin design studio fully decorated and ready to show off!

Check out our fun evening with a few of our favorite people! Thanks Christine Bentley Photography for snapping these amazing photos of our space! (It looks soooo gorgeous!)

Many thanks to all the vendors who helped to make the party so much fun!

We loved Alexandria & Steven’s Disney wedding! Working with the lovely couple, we created a fantastical design of pinks, purples and golds… suitable for any Disney prince and princess!

Their ceremony was held in the Rose Court Garden, followed by a majestic reception at the Grand Californian! Check out the amazing florals and decor by the A Good Affair team!

Thanks to White Rabbit Photo Boutique and KLK Photography for capturing details of this special day!

We were THRILLED to have been asked to plan The Knot Market Mixer for the third year in a row! This time, we went to Los Angeles for the big shindig! The incredible Taglyan Complex was the perfect venue for our stunning glam design.

Guests were welcomed with a garden-esque registration area… manned by our amazing AGA team! The VIPs arrived for the pre-party and mingled with The Knot and The Bump execs and other exclusively invited event professionals!
