Thursday’s Toast: Oh, Those Chic City Brides!

You know when a sophisticated couple mixes it up a bit?

Well, we love this! On the heels of our seaside summer post, this Thursday’s toast is all about opulence, and elegance. We can’t help but think of really hot, strappy pink Jimmy Choos while looking at this wedding!

Colors Never Looked So Sexy

Krista & Dan’s wedding, at the Providence Westin Hotel, was all about city, summer glamour in the stunning hues of fuchsia, plum, and red. All offset stylishly by the clean look of platinum and white. Oh, the look was so cosmopolitan.

Take a good look left at the wonderful play on texture, and the perfect marriage (of course) of the soft, delicate appeal of orchids accented by the festive, full appeal of peonies. Who said modern was too much?!

Our metropolitan couple brought in a great team to enhance their luxe vision from Ormonde Productions to Kristin Spencer Photography, guaranteeing no detail would go unnoticed…by the guests or afterwards by the couple! We added our signature “pop” of color everywhere you turned. Seriously…see these chargers from Rentals Unlimited below? Do you understand why we keep thinking of pretty shoes?!  We just can’t help ourselves!

Details, Details, Details...They Go A Long Way!

Platinum & white reigned gallantly over the tables. If you look closely, you’ll notice we infused a very subtle flutter of hot pink (look at the petals on the peonies) into these breathtaking, varying centerpieces.

A Clean Sophisticated Appeal

What made it really fun on the design floor was the amount of thought that went into all details of this wedding. We had color popping in the cocktail area, shimmer & opulence in the ballroom, and an enjoyable amount of elegant touches to play with all over. Look at this mix of reds & fuchsia blooms trailing down a cake from Scrumptions, Divine!

Clean Lines & Delicate Textures

The whole look was magical! But the real treat was showing off how pink compliments red and plum hues. Add in the platinum accents, and you have a very clean-modern look. The key is to let the details show themselves off well. Our team stacked, layered, and spaced out the varying elements so each one had a moment to shine. Just look at all the wonderful detail below on the head table, the tall glass cylinders and candle sticks gave height, as well as visual space for all the special details to stand out.It was such a spectacular event, and it is such a pleasure to show off this fun loving couple’s high style celebration!  We sure are some lucky ducks here at Stoneblossom!

So, Cheers to our happy couple and their spectacular, sparkling wedding!

This Flower Is On Us!

You Can Have Your Cake, and Eat it Too!

In addition to the flowers at a wedding reception, the cake is always one of the things I scout out. There is just something so astonishing about multiple tiers of sweetness, adorned in such an elegant way! I love how the look of one cake can be just so different from the next.

At many of the weddings we’ve designed, there have been some absolutely fabulous wedding cakes! One of my favorite cakes was created by the incredibly talented Sylvia Weinstock. In fact, Sylvia featured this cake in her book, Sensational Cakes.

The detail work was created to mirror the embroidering on the bride’s fabulous gown, and the sugar flowers coordinated perfectly with the centerpieces on the table.

Mark Soliday of Confectionery Designs is known for creating the most flawless cakes. His creations are always breathtaking. This next cake was no exception. Such a unique concept, the lines of this cake were just so elegant. It looked spectacular at this OceanCliff Reception.

Sitting on a pretty pedestal at a wedding we designed at Belle Mer in Newport, RI was this fabulous creation. The cake looked just perfect against the chic white lines at the venue. The sweet pleats in this cake were just adorable.

This next cake was just dazzling, designed by the creative James Kennedy of Confections. His detail work is just extraordinary. See for yourself!
