From Beginning to End

I just love designing a wedding from beginning to end. Often a client comes to me and already has their look in mind, and we go from there; but when a client, says, “I trust you, do whatever you want”, I just get all giddy!  I was lucky enough for this to happen a few times this season, but was especially excited when Kim asked me to create a look just for her!

Kim and her fiancé were planning to get married at the Loretto Chapel and then head to Rio Chama where they would be hosting a dinner reception for their guests in the Presidents Ballroom.  So, naturally after a few brainstorming sessions, I created a “mood board” for Kim with some color palette inspiration and a few design ideas.

We wanted to create an intimate space with rich and warm colors like deep chocolate, Sangria red and bright magenta, popped with Chartreuse green.  Since the focus was the exquisite meal and delightful conversation we created a seating plan of two 30′ long tables and 4′ across which were narrow enough to chat.

Then, I whipped out the ol’ colored pencils for her table sketch and dreamed up the wild idea of hanging flower arrangements form the ceiling.  Rio Chama has perfect beams just for this and since the guest count was teeny and the space was a little bigger than we really needed, I wanted to make the room feel more filled in and extra interesting.

We hired florist Marisa Peluso of A Passion Flower to make the look come to life and she was up for the challenge.  She had one look at my sketch and knocked it out of the park!  Exotic flowers were paired with lovely linens, china and flatware from Classic Party Rentals and you can see, the room was stunning! Copper chargers brought just the right amount of metallic glimmer and amber glass votives captured the perfect glow for a beautiful Fall evening.  It turned out just how I imagined!
