We did the floral design for Kelley and Scott’s wedding a few years back. At the time we didn’t have a blog and we were unable to blog about this wedding. But I decided to write about it now because I still think the design is relevant to what brides want today. This couple’s floral design consisted of vibrant pops of magenta flowers that were accented by both modern and glam design elements. The look was clean and sophisticated.
The reception centerpieces were raised up by two of our most popular floral stands; our “Crystal Chandelier Stands” and our “modern glass pedestals.” The crystal stand is a bit more glam whereas its counter part leans modern. But both clear glass stands work well together to give the centerpieces height and elevated color through the room. The surprising thing about both of the centerpieces is that they are actually cost effective. Although they are considered tall centerpieces (which are typically more costly) these centerpieces are about the size and cost of our low centerpieces. The fact that they are raised up makes them look bigger and more costly.
Another key element to this wedding is the way that the design corresponds to the room. Sure, the Julia Morgan Ballroom is a fabulous location, but the design works with the space, not against it. The vibrant pops of the deep magenta flowers add color and depth to the dark walls and are not lost in them. The linens accent the ballroom and the lighting brought the whole look to life. This wedding design follows a basic philosophy that we follow at Asiel Design. The 3 basics to transforming event décor are: 1. Flowers. 2. Linens 3. Lighting. When these elements are focused on, then the groundwork for a successful design is laid. Duncan Reyes did a good job of implementing these concepts when he designed this event and the pictures speak for themselves.
Another goal of this blog is to help educate on design. Whether you are throwing an event for 500 or 5 people, throwing an event can get overwhelming. Hopefully these tips are helpful in the planning.
