When Allison and David arrived at their reception the scene was set for their Enchanted Woodland Wedding.
Under the direction of designer David Strohmeyer, there were 3 different centerpieces for the tables. The two wedding party tables, flanking the sweetheart table had glass vases with bare branches and hanging votives. Hanging from the branches were clusters of smilax that gave the effect of moss hanging from the trees. These tables had a silver overlay like dew on the forest floor.
Another arrangement included varying height vases with floating candles and a wreath of blooms and greens surrounding it. Finally a third type was a tall glass vase with an arrangement on top of primarily lush greens with a sprinkling of purple flowers. Finishing every table were purple and silver votives, menu cards at an angle under the napkin, and silver chargers on purple silky floor length tablecloths.
The dance floor had five sets of branches hanging from the ceiling. Attached to the branches were greens and more hanging smilax. Lighting all this were purple up lights on the perimeter by Evans AV, and a bliss light directed at the ceiling décor that looked like hundreds of tiny fireflies twinkling throughout the night.
Allison and David were the only people announced into the room and broke into their first dance immediately to “Who are You When I’m Not Looking.” Grace was led by the aunt of the bride and then the father of the bride gave a welcome to everyone and a very emotional toast.
After a fabulous duo entrée, guests enjoyed the music especially selected for the evening by the newlyweds. The beautiful cake had “peeling bark” for icing and as if that were not enough, guests also enjoyed a late night snack.
What a magical wedding to be a part of.
