Beth and Adam married in a traditional Catholic ceremony just before the rain broke and the sun started shining for photos of this gorgeous couple! We flanked the ceremony space with ferns accented with white blooms and blooming branches.
Beth is the sweetest person I know, her aunt, a former floral designer, wanted to be a part of the big day, so she asked if it was ok for her aunt to create the bouquet with our floral vision. To make sure everything was cohesive, I provided the specific details. Her aunt did a magnificent job! The bridesmaids bouquets consisted of spring’s finest floral: white hyacinths, white lisianthus, white hydrangea, mondial white rose, pale peach Juliet garden roses, white freesia, pale peach freesia, willow eucalyptus, olive branches, and accents of rosemary… just to name a few!. These classic, natural, and elegant bouquets perfectly complemented their floor length navy dresses.
Cafe lighting was hung to create ambiance. Stark white linens and floods of natural lighting, the centerpieces of maidenhair ferns really popped! We also added a sprig of fresh rosemary to each place setting in the classic pocket fold napkins. That room definitely smelled amazing! Classic art loved by the couple in silver frames and watercolor menus on each table added pops of color.
And how sweet is this trio of cakes? The couple actually used their parent’s old cake toppers in additional to the sweet frames of family members cutting their own wedding cakes! We just love traditions like these!
I can’t say I have a specific favorite for this wedding, but… I absolutely loved designing the escort card installation. Three large silver urns filled with luscious ferns and arching branches. Probably the largest installation for an escort card table to date!
Getting to work with great vendors is definitely one of our favorite parts of the job! Alexis from Swiss Dot coordinated the day fantastically! Thomas from Slack Photography captured the day magnificently and the team at Bon Appetit at Terzo Piano, the modern wing of The Art Institute were such a pleasure to work with, as always!
