Gorgeous Winter Wedding

Last Saturday we designed a gorgeous winter wedding for Scott and Kristen from Ann Arbor, Michigan where they attend dental school at the University of Michigan. Thanks to Ryan Prins I have a few gorgeous pictures to share as a little teaser. I'm so excited to see what's to come because the "sneak peaks" are amazing!

The wedding ceremony took place at the stunning St. Andrews Catholic church in Downtown Grand Rapids followed by an elegant reception at Cascade Hills Country Club. The color palette of rich garnet with antique gold and black accents worked beautifully with the ballroom. Candlelight was an intricate part of creating a warm ambiance and given the blizzard that was going on outside, it was the perfect decor choice. :)

An opulent design of James Story orchids, curly willow, salal and red hanging amaranthus on a large cylinder vase created the WOW factor in the room. Each 40" cylinder was filled with a lush layer of black magic rose petals, bringing just the right amount of glamour to the design. To add a touch of the unexpected an LED light base was used under the cylinder, adding a touch of contemporary flair. I can't wait to share more pics of how amazing this looks in a dimly lit room.

My favorite floral detail was definitely the escort card table design. I'm in complete love with anything couture and thanks to Kristen she allowed us to step out of the box! The container was a cut mirror glass vase with an added black feather and crystal garland embellished collar, don't you just love it! Black curly willow branches, teardrop crystals, feathers and a combination of black magic and black baccara roses topped off this dramatic design. Did I mention I love feathers and they just happen to be one of the biggest trends this year!

How much do you love this photo!!!

Kristen was such a beautiful bride, inside and out! Ryan did an amazing job showcasing her beauty.

This photo in my opinion is the epitome of pure love. Scott and Kristen look incredible, relaxed and so in love.

I know I say it all the time and I'm sure my staff would agree but we have the best job! The couples we work with are amazing and when they trust us completely the end result is magical. I hope you enjoy these tasty morsels and I'll be sure to post more details as Ryan sends pics my way.
