Becca was stunning in her long, elegant gown which set the tone for a breezy, sophisticated celebration. She carried a full bouquet of orchid, rose, peony, succulent, and eucalyptus. Her bridesmaids wore flowing mix and match white dresses and carried slightly smaller elegant white floral bouquets.

A lush white and green living table runner with roses, orchids, and peonies dressed the long family table of Burnham Hall at the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Cincinnati. Natural linens covered the circular tables which held mixes of white roses, hydrangea, peonies, green succulents and eucalyptus interspersed with the stunning king protea. The simple white and green palette beautifully incorporated the gold of the chiavari chairs and historic railings encircling the historic Hall. 

A long, simple white aisle runner led Becca to the chuppah, a Jewish symbol of the couple's future home. The chuppah was dressed asymmetrically in white hydrangea and green vine. The textured hydrangea, roses, and long tendrils of greenery brought the bright summer day into Burnham Hall.

Italian Inspired Rustic Wedding at Family Farm

An early fall outdoor wedding inspired by the beauty and culture of the Italian countryside. Guests gathered at Spring Hill, the bride's family farm for a day of horse drawn carriages, weathered fences and a family style dinner at country tables. Guests dined alfresco under an open sided tent hung with a large wreath chandelier suspended from the center. Long tables were set with natural linen runners overlaid with dense leafy garlands of seeded eucalyptus and white tapered and votive candles.

The bucolic setting and beautiful weather suited this Tuscan inspired wedding ceremony and reception perfectly. Tuscany brings to mind fresh flavors straight from the earth and a bevy of aromatic herbs like eucalyptus and bay. Guests sat at long farm tables with natural linen table runners laid with a mix of eucalyptus, bay, olive, and rosemary. Tapered, pillar and votives of white candles created a romantic ambiance. Each place setting had napkins with a sprig of lavender and rosemary. Earthy, fragrant and unforgettable. 

The bride was gorgeous carrying a simple bouquet of hydrangea and rose. Bridesmaids wore dresses in a mix of slate, pale and stone grays and carried nosegays of white roses, silvery dusty miller, lavender and pine. Hydrangea foliage and mophead clusters of chartreuse and purple were tucked into oblong tin tubs. Ferns draped over rustic beams transforming the airy loft and softening the old wood to create an ambiance of sophistication and charm. This perfect September wedding day was photographed by Stacy Newgent.

Elegant White & Green Wedding with Ombre Floral Wall

Belle & Blanc Photography | Floral Wall for Wedding Ceremony  and Reception

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.

Candlelit Ceremony & Reception at The Bell Event Centre

FullSizeRender (1).jpg

A composed color palette of whites and variation on green unified the warm candlelit space of The Bell Event Centre for this St. Patrick's Day wedding. The floral centerpieces reflect the light and seem to glow in the dreamy Romanesque space. For the arrangements we used a mix of robust white roses, calla lilies, hydrangea and snapdragons interlaced with hardy lily foliage and the painterly schefflera. 

Vaulted ceilings dramatically lit from the floor, 100 year old stain glass windows, and candles upon candles were the design elements that inspired the florals for this Bell Event Center wedding and reception. Originally St. Paul's Church, both the interior and exterior is stunning with its expansive nave, original murals that draw the eye along the walls and the handcrafted terrazzo floor.
