REAL WEDDING: Luxurious Details & Full Service Planning
Every year we have a few clients who have a vision for their wedding day that is above and beyond your typical wedding reception décor, and Rob and Niccole’s wedding really stood out for the amazing volume of luxurious details that were incorporated into their day.
Rob and Niccole took advantage of our Full Service Planning guru Monique Jeffrey, to ensure that the intricately adorned estate, tent and garden design for their ceremony and reception was accomplished without a hitch! With gorgeous flower installations, custom furniture, lighting and live entertainment, this event was a great collaboration between some of the top wedding professionals in New England! Today we are going to focus on four elements that made this event really stand out – be sure to read through to the end to check out ALL of our partners on this event!
FLORAL DESIGN & INSTALLATION
Flou(‑e)r Specialty Floral Events was the perfect fit for Rob & Niccole’s celebration. They are a luxury design studio specializing in creative and distinctive designs. The client vision for the floral design was a “flower explosion” of greenery and happy ‘berry’ colors. To accomplish this look, the Flou(‑e)r team covered every shelf, railing, surface, or focal point with an “overabundance” of floral accents. They also did some amazing floral pieces for the garden, tent, and photobooth areas.
The installation began at midnight the night before the event and continued through the following afternoon. According to the Flou(‑e)r team, there were over 4,000 hydrangeas, two giant floral ‘walls’, garland, centerpieces, petals and so much more!
Flou(‑e)r Specialty Floral Events was joined by O-Luxe Design, who designed and installed several larger-than-life 14 ft. floral panels covered in lush floral and greenery that hung from the tent canopy. They also installed floral garland going up each tent center pole, and hanging arrangements for a tent design that was completely original.
One feature from this event that had a huge impact on the overall look and feel of the event was the mix of luxurious white “Heathrow” sofas, “Napoleon Chairs”, and “Arctic Chairs” from CORT Event Furnishings. White is always a great go-to color to create a formal look, and with the natural colors at Willowdale Estate, this color really pops!
The ceremony design had white sofas surrounding a central platform for the bride and groom. This gave everyone a perfect view, and an extra comfortable seat! During the reception, there was seating fit for royalty with a whimsical napoleon arm chair for each guest. The garden courtyard was also transformed into a lounge and dance floor, with arctic couches, chairs and tables.
Our client chose a cake from the internationally known cake designer Sylvia Weinstock. She is best known for achieving impossible requests, and our client requested a show-stopping cake topper featuring the exact likeness of Rob and Niccole, surrounded by flowers that was entirely made of sugar! Her work truly is edible art!
LIGHTING & TENT INSTALLATION
Revelation Productions is extremely savvy when it comes to technical production, and they offer a wide variety of services in the audio visual realm. Rob & Niccole’s tent design showcased that work perfectly with fabric drapes, crystal chandeliers, hanging floral arrangements and panels, and the warm glow of uplights. They even helped us coordinate sound for the event!
