To produce a wedding ceremony and reception using flowers as the main design element and with a look that was crisp, clean and contemporary.
For the ceremony itself, Flower Dec created a design so all eyes would automatically go to the chuppah. The aisle was flanked on either side by classic Roman columns draped in ivory chiffon and topped with oasis balls of either green button mums or white pom poms. On either side of the aisle, a four-inch-wide row of Virginia rose petals and wheat grass connected the aisle stands.
At the end of the aisle stood the chuppah, a sculpture of exotic floral placed on a riser covered with white carpet. Using the French technique of pave (pav-ay) where flower heads are placed very closely together to create a carpet of flowers, Flower Dec created stripes of color across the horizontal front and sides of the chuppah.
First, almost 200 green cymbidium orchids were applied on the lowest row, then 500 white Virginia roses were added. The last stripe of white stalk added a light fragrance. Down the poles and backside of the chuppah, white dendrobium garlands hung in long strips to give the chuppah a feeling of height. At the base of each leg, flats of wheat grass surrounded by a four-inch row of white Virginia rose petal were placed. And, as a final touch, tall glass vases of white amaryllis were placed at either side of the chuppah.
In the reception area, the color theme of green and white and the design theme of clean and crisp were continued. The head table was decorated with green button mum balls and square, glass vases filled with lotus pods, white Virginia roses and green bluvardia. Column candles and votives added a warm glow.
The entire look was given a final polish with the addition of silver satin cloths and silver chavari chairs and chair covers.
