Glamorous Pink & Green Summer Wedding

One of the most anticipated weddings of the summer hosted 350 guests at the renowned St. Regis Atlanta. The focal point of the cocktail hour was an abundant display of modern glass candleholders and light pink peony and garden roses presented in the chateau vase on acrylic risers. The entire presentation gave gorgeous foreground to a stunning 12′ wide visual behind the built-in bar.

Love is in the details and we didn’t miss an opportunity to embellish lounge groupings, cocktail tables, and even the ladies restroom with pretty pink garden roses.

Guests were seated in a mix of estate and round tables and featured a lovely display of pink and green floral.  The two 40′ estate tables featured a layered look of tall clear glass vases with floating candles and a low striking green foundation of clear glass vessels filled with vibrant green mini green hydrangea and viburnum. The round tables were adorned with low floral in a glass vessel filled with mono bloom floral arrangements of pink garden roses and blush peonies. A trio of crystal candlesticks with white taper candles and clear glass votive completed the look.

 

A stately 40’ head table was draped in textured linens and featured a low collection of glass vessels filled with mono-bloom floral of blush garden roses and blush peonies that ran the entire 40′ of the table.

Even more impressive was the 5 MILES worth of ribbon that our team used to create a DYNAMIC statement above the dance floor.

Design Inspired By the Environmental Values of a Maverick

A birthday party for CNN founder and media mogul Ted Turner was held at the St. Regis Hotel in Atlanta on Saturday, Nov. 17, 2018.  Sticking with the Waste Not Want Not values of the client, we collaborated with our floral sister from another mister, Kim Cheney of August Floral & Event Design to create a visually inspiring experience that mirrors those values and environmental interest while honoring the Maverick Man.
