A garden for one day, just for Nicole and Toby’s wedding at the Montage Resort and Spa. Faux stone urns, various garden elements and pristine hedges created the altar and path for Nicole’s processional, while moss and floral balls are strategically placed in the aisle and all around… several naughty guests thought it was soccer time, LOL. Adjacent to the Pacific lawn was set for cocktails with ice blue couches, mirrored tables and sushi attendants on stand by.
One of my favorite elements from this wedding were the ice blue velvet with mocha leather appliquéd table cloths. We immediately took patterns from the cloth and incorporated it into the paper goods- from silk box invitations, custom decal dance floor to patterned seating cards that grew on twigs in a full bed of moss. We used quite a bit of moss on this event, which i don’t typically care for but it worked.
Guest seating for dinner were 2 sizes of elongated wooden tables or booth seating for 8. There were so many table top elements…..let’s list them: lamps, hurricane blue candle, wrought iron obelisk with a treatment of roses, hydrangea, peonies and stock at the base in blues, peach, pink and white, small urns filled with roses, and moss balls! Only the head table had taffetta chair slips for the gold chivaris. And did I learn about napkin folds on this event, 3 kinds for the 3 different chargers at the 3 different tables. Thanks to Christopher (Fiori Fresco Special Events)for giving me this awesome book on napkin folds, much harder with 2 toned trimmed ones. You are super talented! (and thanks for allowing me to be nit picky that day, inside joke)
