To describe this over-the-top wedding as glamorous would be an understatement. With its numerous chandeliers, glittering crystals, rich golds and shining sequins, this wedding was a shimmering black, white and gold feast for the eyes. Kristi knew exactly what she wanted from the moment she walked into our studio (along with her FABULOUS wedding coordinator, Gina Hundley of San Diego Weddings by Gina) and we took her dreams and made them into a flower-filled reality.
The bridal bouquet truly set the tone, created solely of fluffy, fragrant white peonies encrusted with unique gold-faceted brooches of all shapes and sizes.
Not to be outdone, the stunning ceremony was dressed-to-the-nines. We custom created a gold dupioni silk carpet aisle runner and custom hand-sewn black lace platforms to be topped with floral and surrounded by luxe drama. The entry to the aisle was marked by our gold chandeliers, dripping in fluffy peonies and roses paired with large urn-style arrangements of element-blocked florals. We custom created a black draped canopy to be full with a lush floral arrangement across the top. Our glittering gold and crystal chandelier hung in the center, complimenting the entry decor.
Huge centerpieces covered the reception, with a variety of centerpiece-types placed at guest tables, one more dramatic than the next. Candles created a romantic glow across the room in shades of glass, cut crystal, gold and mercury glass. Mirrored platforms were utilized to elevate centerpieces and create a unique look on the tabletops. Gold candelabras were adorned with glittering Swarovski crystal detailing and black crystal candelabras were strategically placed along the room to add a unique twist. By far the most dramatic and large of the centerpieces was an all-orchid centerpiece created from over 85 exotic phalaenopsis orchid stems.
