After a brief period of hibernation, we’re back in action. This past weekend kicked off our 2016 wedding lineup, and what a start to the season!
Nicole and Bobby wanted a Grammy Awards themed wedding and that is what they got! MS Events rolled out hundreds of feet of red carpet (including down the aisle!), draped King Family in black, with black tablecloths and gold everywhere for maximum glam.
The couple were married in front of the huge stone fireplace, with a roaring fire behind them. I had the pleasure of working on the arrangement that stretched from one end of the mantle to the other. I’ll admit I’ve gotten soft over the winter and this one was a real wake up for the designing muscles! This kind of arrangement is much more easily done on site, especially when it’s made up of delicate orchids and amaryllis. So I started with nothing more than a block of foam and some candles, and after a few hours of climbing up and down the ladder it all came together. The effect of the orchids spilling over the mantle was really stunning, if I do say so myself.
The reception flowers were a gorgeous mix of all white blooms featuring orchids, amaryllis, roses, ranunculus, hydrangeas, and lisianthus. Our designers Marlin and Johanna outdid themselves creating these lush and glamorous centerpieces in the studio and then perfecting them in place by adding delicate orchids. Low centerpieces in gold compotes alternated with high arrangements perched on gold candelabras, and both were were set off beautifully by all the black and gold.
The only flowers that were not white were bright red to match the red carpet! The bridesmaids each held bouquets of red roses, and the bride had a delicate bouquet of white roses, orchids, sweet peas, and gardenia.
