UNIQUE Wedding: Arianysis & Allan

When Ari first approached us to help her design and plan her wedding, the only thing she brought us was a peacock feather. Upon seeing this, we knew she was the PERFECT bride for us! We created a color scheme utilizing the colors present on the peacock feather, and combined it with a Mediterranean feel. Ari and Allan are extreme opposites. Ari is all about everything old world, dramatic, and over-the-top, and Allan is more laid back, appreciates things more modern, and has an analytical personality. To mimic these two opposites, we created two different centerpieces, one utilizing a bronze candelabra, a tall spray of different florals, and hanging crystals. The second centerpiece consisted of three vases, all the same flower, and they were joined by grasses and branches, representative of wires, because Allan works with computers. Since their reception was such a color blast, we opted for an all white, candlelit ceremony, accented with amber uplighting. Ari wanted something romantic and simple. Besides the personal flowers, not another floral was present. To tie in Ari & Allan's love of theatre, the guests were treated to Playbill programs and ticket escort cards. Each of the table names, important moments in the couple's relationship, were described in a card in the center of each table. Ari wanted to make sure her cake made a statement, and it most definitely did! We brought attention to the six tier confection by keeping it white and placing it in the center of the very colorful reception, complete with blue uplighting. A candy bar and photobooth kept the guests entertained all night. And if that wasn't enough a production, Ari emerged towards the end of the night in an elegant purple gown and performed with her girls! It was truly a wedding that the guests will be talking about for years to come!
