The most extraordinary wedding celebration I had the pleasure of working on was Lauren and Matt’s wedding held in Boca Raton, Florida . Donna, the brides mother wanted to have a “party” to celebrate her daughters wedding. Out with the traditional wedding and in with a relaxed, casual celebration with a taste of the Florida Keys.
Donna, selected a simple , elegant letterpress invitation from Elum Designs . The invitation true to our theme was titled “Palm” and featured a palm motif in sage ink.
The couple had a intimate private ceremony for close friends and family. The chuppah captured the essence of the Jewish tradition with a canopy consisting of a beautifully embroidered talit, stretched over four poles which were held by honored guests.
Just loved this picture, the bride carried a bouquet of loosely arranged white rose’s, mini callas and green hydrangea.
The guests were greeted with a place card table arrangement with multiple vases filled with lemons and assorted colorful orchids and mini mango callas.
Behind the scene the floral arrangements were being made on site by Xquisite events led by designer Jon Buick . The floral arrangements featured masses of Morcoro and Oncidium orchids grouped together in skinny glass vases.
The room layout was designed using royal tables that were joined together and placed on either side of the dance floor. The tables were covered with royal blue and green custom floor length linens from Nuage Designs. The bamboo folding chairs completed the look. The orchid centerpieces ran across the tables joined together with flexi grass and tailored with orchid heads. A lounge was created across from the band for guests to relax . The ceiling above the dance floor was filled with paper lanterns .
The guests were entertained in by Jimmy Stowe and the Stowaways , a Jimmy Buffet tribute band.
The guest’s departed with a “mint mojito ” flavored candle. This was a truly original . Thank you to Donna,the brides mom for her inspiration and giving us the flexibility to create a beautiful wedding in true ” Florida” style.
