Sarah & David's bright, Airy Monastery Event Center Wedding Reception

Fragrant pink roses and frilly white peonies... 

. . . tucked into layers of greenery brought the garden indoors to fill the former nave of what is now the Monastery Event Center in Mount Adams. Soft pinks, creamy whites and emerald foliage seemed to bloom from every nook and cranny in the historic space during Sarah and David's afternoon wedding reception.    

Details...

One of our favorite details is the escort card case. A beautifully finished vintage card catalogue was reborn as a gorgeous welcome display for escort cards. We tucked fresh white stock, roses, lisianthus, handfuls of green tendrils and foliage into the sturdy, dark wooden drawers until it looked like something from a dream.

Sugar Realm created a stunning tiered cake with blooming pastel sugar flowers that added another level of artistic beauty to the celebration. What an honor to have been a part of Sarah and David's wedding story!
