“A modern interpretation of a tree is in the center of the bar. The trunk is made of white painted birch branches and the top of the tree is a shallow drum with a stick pattern printed in pink and white and the inside is lined with rose-gold glitter.” Pictured: Bat mitzvah at Mandarin Oriental

De Juan Stroud Headshot Photo By Ann LamPhoto: Ann LamIn 1996, Stroud (@dejuanstroud) took the leap from finance to florals and full-service event design. Today, he works with many notable clients including Tony Bennett, Jon Bon Jovi, Michael J. Fox, and Tracy Pollan, and HBO, but his favorite have been his two daughters, saying “I want every wedding that I design to be special, but it was extra special to design weddings for my own daughters.” In addition to private events, New York-based Stroud has also handled galas for the New York City Ballet and the Central Park Conservancy.
