With such detailed beauty, it is hard to believe that this gorgeous and unique wedding came together in only a month! The lovely bride came to us without an exact vision of what she wanted and together with the oh-so-talented Thomas Bui, of Thomas Bui Lifestyle, this stunningly fresh design concept came together flawlessly!
Julie carried a vibrant and textured bouquet of soft ivory and lavender tones paired with vibrant purple with green pops made from roses, spray roses, orchids, calla lilies and freesia.
Josiah wore a boutonniere coordinating with the bridal bouquet; an ivory calla lily paired with a vibrant mokara orchid.
The striking cobalt blue of the elegant floor length bridesmaids dresses paired beautifully with the lavender and bright purple bouquets of orchids and roses.
Place cards were placed in classic deep wood stained boxes filled with vibrant green reindeer moss and bright purple orchid accents. Our boxes were delicately wrapped in a cobalt blue satin ribbon with rhinestone detailing.
The stunning and unique reception was a perfect mixture of modern and traditional, pairing vibrant colors and sleek centerpieces with the traditional and regal ballroom of the Prado at Balboa Park. Gorgeous apple green shantung linens were provided by the fabulous Concept Event Design team, and coordinated PERFECTLY with the fresh green stems of the ivory french tulips that dripped from the exquisite centerpieces.
A trio of tall, clean and elegant glass cylinder vases were grouped in the center of the guest tables, each containing a fantastically romantic bouquet of dripping soft ivory french tulips, gracefully spilling out in three directions. Bouquet groupings were fused together with vibrant, exotic purple/fuschia mokara orchids, adding life and color to each centerpiece. Centerpieces was surrounded by a tall, romantic mercury glass candle trio placed at varied heights, adding romantic lighting, playing with the water filled cylinder vases, and complimenting mercury glass votive groupings that were placed in between them. The beautiful head table was topped with a sleek mirrored runner, amplifying candlelight and delicate orchid blooms placed on the table.
Each setting of the head table contained a single, exotic purple mokara orchid bloom.
The beautiful wedding cake was perfectly detailed in black swirling sugar formations, complimented by purple mokara orchids.
The beautifully ornate Founders Chapel was simply accented with two centerpieces placed atop tall white pedestals. With such a gorgeously detailed church, we always suggest not overpowering the venue with combating decor.
Every beautiful detail was captured so beautifully by Narrative Images Photography.
