Every girl dreams of a truly romantic fairy tale wedding and just last month, we had the pleasure of designing the ULTIMATE fairy tale garden-style wedding in the woods with Mike and Angelina. Held on the bride's family's private estate, we played up the forest scenery with various garden flowers in pastel shades of peaches, lavender, greens, pinks and purples to match the bubbly bridesmaids lined up against the trees with the sun shining through at just the right angles. Talk about a backdrop! Fresh-picked garden moss baskets lined the aisle of pink and white spread flower petals as Angelina was escorted by her father, carrying her lush light bouquet that perfectly complimented her sexy and romantic silk gown.
Proceeding a short but sweet ceremony, guests ventured to the gorgeous front driveway gardens for an exquisite cocktail hour. The groom's family, being in the oyster business, provided guests with delicious seafood hors d'oeuvres, raw oyster bar included, as they enjoyed - per the grooms request- lively karaoke and signature drinks. After finding their oyster shell place cards, guests proceeded to the reception tent.
After passing by a rustic window pane hand painted with the night's menu, guests entered an atmosphere of pure elegance and garden romance. Lush garden flower centerpieces were surrounded by white wrought iron candlesticks, various votives, rustic mercury vases, and flickering floating candles. Our favorite touches were the table number books - guests seated at each table signed the books with messages and words of wisdom for the bride & groom. Then the table numbers represent the year anniversary that Mike & Angelina will read them. With gourmet food, a plentiful bar, and superb live band, the newlyweds danced the night away with family and friends.
Congratulations Angelina and Mike!
