This wedding stimulates the senses in a dazzling way! Although there is little color other than in the stunning floral centerpieces by Festive Couture Floral, the whole effect is one of opulence.

Unexpected touches characterize this couture wedding, from the silver gowns of the wedding party to the sparklers used to send the couple off. The use of brilliant color is a delightful surprise.

Hinting at the Drama

Lavish touches of gold, a table draped in muted, subtle patterned textile, and a phenomenal floral arrangement that introduces shades of lavender amid the impressive white blooms only hints at what is in store for the seated dinner.

This event demonstrates a spirited and well-coordinated approach, with a theme that is perfectly executed -- from tasteful and traditional white floral arrangements and filmy bow-accented bouquets lining the aisle at the classically beautiful cathedral to the stunning surprises in store for guests at the wedding reception.

The centerpieces are stunning! The color is captivating, and the size alone beckons attention. But it is the layers of design that are notable for this event. Vibrant color and rich materials are masterfully linked, but executed so well that nothing is discordant. Round tables, draped in simple, gold-textured linen, don't make a statement of their own, but rather are the glue that binds all the elements together.

Gold Anchors the Scene

Gold is a unifying theme, but the major player is color. It's all layered with interest, however, extending from the overflowing centerpieces to a single glowing orchid on each napkin, a bright spot of color amid a sea of gold. Each golden napkin is placed demurely on a gold-rimmed charger. Tall, fluted vases are golden, as are the menu cards at each place.

In another building, this dramatic interplay might seem a bit stark; here it is appropriate, because the stunning backdrop of the Coronado Ballroom is a perfect complement for the edgy display. Patterned flooring, glittering chandeliers, architectural embellishments and a golden glow all contribute to the lavish effect.
