A little bit rustic. A dash of garden romance. Added Southern cuisine. Each of those details make this wedding fit for Laura and Steve!
Sometimes a design begins out of a desire for change. For Laura, we sought to soften her ballroom’s look, taking much of the focus away from so many wooden architectural details, and instead draw the eye toward added floral and lace features.
It all started with the ceiling. Draped beautifully with white fabric swags, accented with 30-foot greenery garlands and dripping with focal chandeliers, the ceiling transformed. On one side of the room, a large bar with a greenery roof brought “ohs” and “awws” from their guests. On the other, the band’s stage featured greenery, lanterns and trees running its length for beauty and purpose (i.e. hiding equipment). If only you could have seen my truck packed to the brim with lanterns and extra greens to fill this stage!
My favorite moment of the day was a wish that came from the bride. Laura wanted to eat dinner privately, just her and her new husband, in their beautiful ballroom. When you look back on your wedding day, you’ll find that it’s the moments that matter. That moment will certainly be cherished by them for years to come!
