You can probably guess – design is one of my favorite parts of the wedding planning process. It’s the big, beautiful package that all of a couple’s ideas get wrapped up in; where all of the details they’ve spent months finalizing blend together, and where the celebration of this special time reaches its gorgeous peak. …And the icing on this particular cake? Getting to work with my creative team to design a one-of-a-kind wedding for my clients.
I always enjoy collaborating with talented floral designer Akeem Clayton. He pulls from his own exciting experiences to design unique wedding and event designs couples can’t even imagine. You’ve seen his work in various publications, you may have even attended one of his amazing events abroad or you may know him because he’s worked with many celebrities to bring their own party ideas to life. My favorite part is that no matter who the client is, he creates a work of art that tells a passionately detailed story.
This table design centered around lush, eye-level floral with the gorgeous city skyline as the backdrop. We introduced a modern mix of sleek acrylic furniture and lush bold flowers for something romantic and unexpectedly bold. Being out in the elements up on the roof for a wedding can present its own set of challenges, but the acrylic table allowed us to create a dramatic dinner table look for the estate table without worrying about the linen flying away.
The added bonus is that the sleek acrylic reflects the sparkling lights from the breathtaking views of skyscrapers and stars – a big picture brides and grooms dream about.
