Soft, neutral tones of white, cream and champagne were used to create an elegant style and a romantic atmosphere for Leslie and Adam’s wedding. ● Leslie chose a lovely bridal bouquet of champagne roses, white ranunculus, and white baby orchids. Her bridesmaids held pretty bouquets of roses and hydrangeas. ● The couple was married beneath a romantic canopy designed with soft drapes of fabric. A lush tiara of flowers was set along the top. The flower selection included hydrangeas, roses, Matthiola, and lisianthus in the subtle shades chosen for their wedding. Beautiful gathers of coordinating flowers decorated each post. A crystal chandelier was suspended underneath to add to the elegant setting. ● An elegantly draped fabric wall, finished with a swagged valance at the top, was placed in the background of the ceremony area. ● A romantic, candlelit walkway was created for the bridal procession by lining the aisle with a multitude of glass vessels topped with floating candles. ● A white runner with a border of delicate rose petals completed the look.
A dramatic display was created for the place card table. Several clusters of white, cream and champagne flowers were set in glass cylinders of various heights. Each cluster was comprised of a different variety of flower: calla lilies, roses, phalaenopsis orchids, spray orchids, hydrangeas, Matthiola, and lisianthus. An array of candles was added, and the whole display was placed on a clear acrylic riser for added height and dimension. Finally, the entire setting was lit from above with pin spot lighting. ● A breath-taking scene was created for the couple’s reception. ● Half of the guest tables were decorated with tall, luxuriant floral arrangements of roses, hydrangeas, calla lilies, orchids, and Matthiola blossoms in shades of white, cream, and champagne. Each gorgeous centerpiece was set atop a flared Tuscany glass vase. ● The remaining tables were decorated with an exquisite tablescape design. A low and lush floral centerpiece, in a pave design, was placed along the center of these tables. The flower selection coordinated with the other ballroom centerpieces, and a collection of candles was placed around the floral display to complete the soft and romantic design. ● Delicate placements of champagne roses trimmed the couple’s elegantly styled cake. ● Leslie and Adam’s names were projected onto a beautifully draped fabric wall behind the bandstand to add a final personalized touch to their wedding decor.
