The perfect couple got married this past Memorial Day weekend at Rosecliff, in Newport. Paula & Evan envisioned a new twist on summer luxury.
With the delightful collaboration of Elissa Held, NY event planner extraordinaire, we gleefully transformed Rosecliff Mansion into a turn of the century french garden theme.
The opportunity to work with varying elements from vintage bird cages to charming cherub sculptures, left us in the most joyful of moods as we juxtaposed textures, and weaved in ivy & lush garden flowers.
How divine are these tiny details of sparrows hovering over the flourish of the script above?!
Or this magnificent attention to detail with our french inspired moss overlay holding ‘court’ underneath these whimsical escort cards…s-p-l-e-n-d-i-d.
The real treat was in all the tiny details, as we always love to weave into our designs. Notice the textures of the linens balanced so gracefully with the abundance of the roses, peonies, and ivy (plus oh-so many more spring blooms). And the vintage & french elements that tied the whole theme together so perfectly.
No detail was overlooked! The gold rimmed wine glasses complimented Rosecliff’s ballroom, as varying centerpieces were adorned all over to create a stately appeal. Do you spy the stunning, monogrammed chair covers and glass beaded charger plates?
The height of our centerpieces allowed us to play with the flowers! And oh boy, did we play! We were excited (ecstatic) to add complimenting, big, fresh blooms to a variety of eye-catching areas all around these french inspired statues. Our design team relished the creative production of weaving ivy all about the vintage trellis’ and showing it off, as it trickled elegantly down the sculptures, past the fragrant & colorful blooms.
And what a glorious day it was! We were so happy for Paula & Evan (look at the runner below…spectacular). The sun was shining, and all the glorious purple/lilac elements stood out brilliantly against the backdrop of a vivid blue ocean view.
So, Hat’s off to Paula & Evan! We wish you many wonderful years to come, and many wonderful “thank you’s” for allowing us to take place in such a glorious event. Cheers!
