We had an amazing fall day on Friday for a fun, colorful wedding. The tablescape was chock full of texture, and we had an amazing time designing for this one.
It all started about a year ago when Nicole from Unique Nantucket introduced us to Christine (the bride). She was all about a fall wedding, lots of rich color, and completely trusted our vision to help get the job done. The bride carried white blooms with silvery grey and navy accents. That was the only 'non' color of the day.
The chandelier that hangs over the club's dance floor was decked out in fall berries and foliage to cover up it's 'medieval look'. I worked very closely with Molly from Kramer Paper (she did all of the stationary for this wedding, and WOW was it gorgeous)and Christine to help finalize the escort cards, menu design (complete with some fairy dust)and table numbers. For the escort table, we took a huge birdcage and had a design with fruiting figs and persimmon branches, orchids and sea holly shooting out from the center. Each guest picked up their escort card tucked in a bird's nest with a little feather. To top off the look, we had a big peacock perched above looking over everything. I can't wait to see what Zofia captured for us.
The tablescapes for this wedding were unique because not only did we do round, square and rectangular tables, but we also had silk linens with a burlap runner. Some of the tables had gilded glass chargers, and some had twig chargers (all provided by Placesetters). To play off that, we did three different centerpiece designs (some in glass, some in wood)and sprinkled red crabapples throughout for a lush finish to the tables. At the last minute, I had some reclaimed cedar wood (always trying to be 'green'!) cut to hold our table numbers. Even the club's staff thought they were great and smelled amazing.
This wedding came together nicely and I want to thank Christine for trusting us wholeheartedly to make her vision a reality.
Enjoy Rome you two!
