for the ceremony, we created a "floating chuppah" and in lieu of traditional poles we strung green cymbidium orchids onto fishing line to give the illusion of poles...it was airy and fresh and a cool take on a traditional canopy...


we flanked each side of the chuppah with 2 tall sand blasted manzanita trees, accented with green orchids and set in white bases which were then filled with curled green ti leaves, lime green hydrangea and fuschia peonies...





glass vases filled with white rocks, sand blasted manzanita and green orchids made for a simple aisle treatment...




the bridesmaids carried petite bouquets of fuschia peonies...


the father of the bride was hilarious and had everyone laughing as he walked his daughter down the aisle...


how stunning was the back of the bride's jenny packham gown?!?! it was so sexy, so chic and just fit the vibe of the hotel so perfectly!


kerri's bouquet was made entirely of ruffly, vanilla colored peonies...





mirrored cocktail tables were given a kick of color by a single fuschia peony in a small white bud vase...


sleek white vases were filled with themed colored florals and clear glass votive candles were set on white candlesticks for a touch of glamour...





we brought in tons of white lounge furniture for guests to sit on, in addition to seated tables draped in custom white dupioni silk linens...






melody knocked it out of the park with her yummy desserts!! guests couldn't stop talking about the display we created...








instead of a table, we brought in 2 acrylic podiums and a glass top and created our own unique dessert display...our tall white candlesticks with florals on top coordinated perfectly with melody's white footed dessert stands...



i also used a clear acrylic cake base, filled with white rocks, fuschia peonies, green orchids and pieces of sand blasted manzanita...



a sweet moment during the reception...


it was a fabulous party!!

Everything looks so beautiful and glamorous! I have those white Ikea bud vases. I love how they're so versatile. The flower arrangements look AMAZING...so does the dessert table!
