Happy Friday everyone! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to post this wedding!
Alana and Justin’s wedding was months and months of planning and we were along for the ride throughout. Early on, they enlisted Sarah True and throughout many meetings, we perfected the modern chic wedding they were envisioning.
It was the epitome of New York chic~ all white flowers, candlelight everywhere, cool lounge furniture, and insane lighting!
The space itself didn’t disappoint. Espace is an amazing venue, and they were so helpful to us. We really appreciated their fantastic team.
Alana and her mom were dolls. We had a ton of fun planning the flower details. Although the flowers were clean and simple, we jazzed them up by using mirrored cubes, white vases and glass ice.
Alana and her maid’s carried similar flowers~ white roses, calla lilies, ranunculus, freesia, hydrangeas and stephanotis. Alana wanted a clean look for her bouquet. With her stunner of a dress, it made total sense.
One of the floral highlights for us was the place card table~ we used a bed of clear glass and acrylic for the place cards, which was adorned with white phaleonopsis orchids floating out of vases. I loved the look!
Alana wanted to walk down an aisle of candles. We used more candles in this wedding!!! There were over 50 candles on each side of the aisle along with white rose petals. It was gorgeous!
Centerpieces were a mix of tall trumpet vases filled with hydrangeas, various orchids, roses and branches. Low centerpieces were white vases filled with similar flowers compactly arranged. And we layered the tables first with mirrored tiles.
And did I mention candles? At least a dozen floating candles and a dozen votives for every table!!!
This was one wedding that really challenged us. We had a very short turnover from ceremony to reception and had to move all those candles onto tables and have all those candles lit in time for the dinner, while cocktails were going on in the next room! Again, the guys at Espace were so unbelievably helpful moving tables into place. And my team was incredible! They really rallied. Even at 2:30am when we were breaking everything down. Oh yeah, we were tired alright.
There were plenty of details from this wedding! Check out the full feature here on Style Me Pretty!
A cute story~ Prior to the ceremony start time, I walked up the street to Ink48 where we were all staying to drop off the bouquets. I loved seeing Alana getting ready and looking so gorgeous and so happy.
A bit later, as I was going back to my room, a handsome guy happily hopped on the elevator with me.
I asked if he was going to the wedding, he said, he hoped so, he was the groom! And that’s when I met Justin! He was too cute and so excited to see his bride for the first time.
I will remember this wedding for years to come. Thank you Alana and Justin for sharing your incredible day with us.
