Real Wedding: Rachael & Sam, Pt. I

Rachael & Sam were married at the Chrysler Museum of Art in Mary's Garden. A reception followed in Huber Court. We were honored to create the design for this event and very grateful to their coordinator, Pearl Taylor, for bringing them to us.

Rachael is stunning in this beautiful image from David Schwartz Photography. We provided orchids for the bride and her maids to wear in their hair.

Peonies are significant to the bride and we were thrilled to be able to get them so late in the season. Bouquets consisted of hydrangea, peonies, garden roses, and cymbidium orchids. Men wore cymbidiums with ruscus, wrapped in black ribbon.

We really 'clicked' when the couple started to talk about wanting a very natural chuppah. I had purchased some "poles" that were actually dried vines (the kind Tarzan would have used) and was hoping to use them for just this purpose. We added curly willow and cymbidiums for a simple but lush look.

Fuchsia phaelenopsis orchids and gold chiavari chairs with lime bengaline cushions, gave a hint of the reception decor.
