Challenge: Add a classic Hollywood touch to a contemporary wedding table setting.
This wedding event was for a young couple, who wanted a Hollywood-style theme.
Instead of a pure traditional look, I created a mix of traditional and contemporary. The floral design included casablancas, exotic leaves, white roses and kiwi-green chrysanthemums, set in chocolate-colored vases in a minimalist arrangement.
The table setting’s color theme was white, rose gold and chocolate, with a touch of grey.
I used real silverware to accompany the china dishes, which were set on a mix of gold and chocolate-colored chargers.
The candelabras were rose gold. White floating candles completed the Hollywood classic look.
This was an intimate wedding, with a guest list of up to 40 people, so I used a King’s Table setting, with the bride and groom seated together at one end. Chocolate-colored tablecloths were overlayed on top of a foundation of white tablecloths. I scattered white rose petals to give a romantic feel.
I was also in charge of the menu for the reception. I arranged for three different cakes, so all the guests could enjoy fun choices. I hired the caterers and the servers for the reception and the sit-down dinner. I also made arrangements for the photographers.
