Meredith & Elliot's Hall of Mirrors Wedding Reception

Meredith & Elliot's Hall of Mirrors Wedding Reception

Guests arriving to the cocktail area just outside the Hilton Netherland Plaza’s Hall of Mirrors were greeted with warm lights, small cafe tables draped in blush linens, set with glowing votives, bud vases packed with hydrangea, little roses, and wax flower.

Meredith & Elliot’s guests enjoyed a gorgeous reception in a room full of tall, focal arrangements full of white flowers and an assortment of greenery including eucalyptus and silvery lamb’s ear.

The ballroom at Music Hall was transformed into the perfect winter wedding reception with rich amber lighting, flowing draping, and a gorgeous color palette of florals and greenery. We created several large focal arrangements for the entrance and to surround the guest dining area. Tables were set with floral arrangements varying in size, from large gilt vessels to a handful of vintage metallic bud vases and bronze trays. Rich raspberry, red, and magenta roses, green and rust hydrangea, and dahlias tucked into bundles of wax flower and silvery eucalyptus gave the room a lush garden atmosphere.

Elegant White & Green Wedding with Ombre Floral Wall

Texture, elegance, nuance and an invitation to look was our starting point for this beautiful mid summer wedding. We created an ombre floral wall whose highest point was all bright cloud white tufts of sweet pea and rose. Then slowly the colors and textures radiate hints of pale chartreuse and the stippled texture of tiny hydrangea blossoms invite the darker forest greens to break through. Feathery, lush foliage seems to reach from below calling the eye all the way to rest at the bottom and make its way back up. After the ceremony the floral wall was transformed into the backdrop for the photobooth at the reception.  

Clusters of hydrangea were placed in glass bowls amid votives of varying shapes. Escort cards were nestled on a blanket of chartreuse hydrangea blossoms whose tiny heads resembled the diamond shaped pattern on the cards. 

The large focal ceremony arrangements and table settings were a balance of natural and intentional without being forced. You see the makers thoughtful hand working to create a unique living work of art. Tables were covered in gold linens and walls were lit with a subtle peach-pink glow that was otherworldly in its luminescence.

Indian American Wedding at Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza

We loved working with Sonya and Shahryar on their 2013 wedding at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza. Traditional Indian elements such as mangalsutrabandhanam (ceremonial necklace symbolizing connection) and the elegant Mandap under which the ceremony took place came together spectacularly. The space was completely transformed with magenta and red flowers, silver vessels, gold chiavari chairs, perfect lighting and draping.

Reception tables were covered in gold, a color that represents prosperity, and set with bright arrangements in pale lavender and red roses, orchids and hydrangea.
