Stephanie and Codey’s elegant June wedding at the Woodmark Hotel and Still Spa was a vision in crisp white, peachy-pink sweetness, and just a touch of gold. This couple took full advantage of the spring flowers available: frilly pink peonies, trailing flowering clematis vines, showy local calla lilies, and gorgeous garden roses graced the arrangements and wooed the guests with their subtle fragrance.

For their ceremony, Stephanie and Codey chose to keep the decor pared down and elegant. Clean white columns held gold urns filled with lush bouquets of flowers; greenery and blooms framed the aisle and peeked out between mixed metal lanterns and hurricane candles. Soft pink rose petals formed the couple’s initials in the center of the white aisle runner, while greenery draped from the chandeliers above.

The tent reception featured white table linens with touches of gold in the chargers, flatware, and mercury glass candles. The fabulous ceremony arrangements and lanterns now served as a gorgeous backdrop for Stephanie and Codey’s sweetheart table – so lovely!

Congratulations Stephanie and Codey!

For their September wedding, Amanda and Dominick wanted to throw a swanky, sophisticated downtown cocktail party filled with high-style decor and sleek black and white floral. A pair of antique doors flanked by willow trees and a sea of candles created a stunning backdrop for the intimate ceremony. Throughout the space, cozy couches and armchairs invited guests to sit and linger over cocktails. Above two of these couches, branch and floral installations decorated the brick walls – an unexpected touch that added an artistic flair. After the ceremony, the main room was transformed with small dining tables and dramatic tall florals.

Jamie and Steve’s October wedding at Chihuly Gardens and Glass´╗┐ was an autumn floral paradise: gold and burgundy dahlias, rich brown amaranths, chocolate smokebush and ninebark, crab apples, bittersweet, asters, multi-hued antique hydrangea, woodland ferns, and too many varieties of fall leaves to count!

The clean lines of the Glass House were echoed in the ceremony with the use of a sleek lucite chuppah and lucite ghost chairs. Against this modern backdrop, the riotous color of the florals complimented the fabulous oranges and yellows of the Chihuly glass ceiling installation and the golden sunburst out in the gardens. Everything was light and sunshine and airy spaciousness. And as the sun went down, black linens and lots of candlelight at dinner helped transition the space into a romantic, elegant, and cozy party space perfect for dancing the night away. Big kudos to the always fabulous Rebecca of New Creations Weddings for the coordination and design of this truly beautiful event!

Maya and Scott’s March wedding at Canvas Event Space was a sophisticated affaire: from the clear lucite ghost chairs and lucite wedding arch dripping with crystal strands and white orchids, to the ethereal full room draping glowing in the soft light, to the hundreds of candles placed around the room, this wedding oozed glamor and understated elegance. The room literally glowed and twinkled in the candlelight bouncing off of the clear glass and mirrored surfaces used throughout the decor. I mean, just look at that mirror-topped cake table twinkling with candlelight – how gorgeous!

This monochromatic wedding was all about repeated elements and textures used in creative ways. Clean glass and lucite were used in the chairs, candles, arch, crystal strands, and stemware. Light bounced off of the mirrored table tops and assorted mirrored stemmed and cubed vases used in the centerpieces. The fabulous tulle of Maya’s wedding dress was repeated in tulle overlays placed over the white table linens. Even the orchid strands used in the ceremony arch were echoed in the delicate orchids dangling from the chandeliers overhead. All of these elements worked together seamlessly to create an overall effect of weightless, effortless perfection. Enjoy!

Ina and Ned’s sweet wedding last July incorporated a warm summer palette of blush, rich marsala, powder blue, and gold. This wedding was full of unexpected details, from the asymmetrical ceremony arch under the tent, to the ripe peaches, apricots, and grapes peeking out of the greenery runners, to Ina’s blush pink satin wedding gown. Such a fun wedding!

After the outdoor ceremony in the cool white tent, guests headed indoors, to dine at blush-linened tables dripping with greenery and lush florals. Cafe au lait dahlias, whimsical raspberry scabiosa, sweet blue tweedia, garden roses, and brown and cream sunflowers and rudbekia nestled in gold compote vases and lined the tables, perfectly complimenting the floral print on the menu cards resting at each place setting. Big kudos to the ever-talented Lisa Chambers of Chambers and Company for coordinating the details on this lovely event!
