Celebrity Celebrations

Here are a few shots from a passionately purple wedding this last weekend. The bridal party included 17 bridesmaids and over 20 groomsmen. Needless to say it was an amazing event, fit for the famous couple. The bridesmaid bouquets were a beautiful bled of lavender, plum, and two-tone calla lilies with ti leaf, lily grass, and monstera leaf accents. The natural and semi tropical style created a beautiful and dramatic ambiance for the outdoor ceremony.

From crystal bead curtains, satin lined tents, and a canopy of lush white flowers, every last detail was executed to perfection. The ceremony was held at the Club at Carlton Woods, and the reception followed after at the Fazio Club at Carlton Woods, just down the street. The bridesmaids plum dresses stood out beautifully against a background of all white. The brides dramatic entrance was emphasized by flower girls spreading petals from baskets on a pony's back and her arrival by an all white horse drawn carriage.

The reception was also a spectacle to behold. The Fazio was transformed from a rustic Mediterranean villa to a castle draped in lavender, plum, and chocolate satin from floor to ceiling. We alternated the height of the centerpieces to add additional impact and interest. A garland of flowers including orchids and miniature garden roses surrounded the base of the cake, as well as the custom ice sculpture. Each napkin was adorned with a purple dendrobium orchid, and the brides and grooms table had a sexy and sleek arrangement full of plum, lavender, and two tone calla lilies, lily grass, and dark ti leaves.

When all was said and done the Fazio looked appropriately fit for a King and his new Queen.
