Glamorous Art Deco Wedding & Reception at Netherland Hotel

A glamourous art deco inspired wedding ceremony and reception at the historic Hilton Netherland Plaza Hotel in downtown Cincinnati. Florals were a luxe mix of white orchids, subtle blush and peach roses and bursting tufts of hydrangea. Every detail of the day had hints of glitter, gold and silver from the bride's bouquet to the chiavari chairs. 

The lighting for the reception in the Hilton's Hall of Mirrors was rich and dramatic. Reception tables were set with gold tablecloths with gold chiavari chairs covered in black frilly fabric. We used bright, mostly white florals that would stand out in the low light.

The reception tables were set with a mix of tall and short arrangements. Tall black vessels held focal arrangements with thick white roses and hydrangea. White orchids cascaded down the vases. Short arrangements in groupings of four held roses and a glittery mix of art deco inspired baubles.

Floral walls bring the wow factor and are a wonderful way to convey vitality, liveliness and a bit of awe-inspiring wonder which made it the perfect choice for The Christ Hospital's Joint and Spine Center's Grand Opening entrance. Guests were welcomed with acrobats, blue carpets and living gardens for the "Life In Motion" event.

We loved bringing The Christ Hospital's logo to life with a vibrant mix of hydrangea, zinnia and miles of foliage!    

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.
