La Pacifica- New Ballroom at Four Seasons Biltmore

We would like to thank Melissa Musgrove for providing us with these amazing images of Ashley and Andrew's Wedding. The very talented Mindy Rice used an abundance of florals to create a spectacular ceremony structure. While Ambient draped the flowing fabric over the ceremony terrace. Ashley's theme colors were green and blue, and we were able to bring those colors into the ballroom and terrace through the beautiful aisle runner, chair cushions and linens. It literally brought the ocean into the ballroom. We came up with a fun area for their wedding party and closest friends by doing lounge type seating with magnolia trees as the focal points throughout the room, each dripping with candles! The seating, blue suede benches with huge throw pillows for the guests to lounge and dine, was provided by Classic Party Rentals. Lazaro Designs created a theme of the double "A" which was incorporated throughout the invites, menus, dance floor and even the ice sculpture which was provided by Images in Ice. It was a very memorable day for all.

The Velvet Garden created amazingly abundent florals. The trees were decorated by Bella Vista Designs with twinkle lights and uplighting to make the garden feel magical.

Rainy skies lifted for Barbara and Azad

I had the pleasure of working on the most amazing wedding for Barbara and Azad. Although the morning was a bit soggy- due to rain, the skies parted about an hour before the ceremony began. The couple chose a double ceremony to show two cultures coming together as one. First, a Persian ceremony was lead by Azad's Grandmother, followed by a Catholic ceremony directed by Rev. Jerry Bellamy. As you can already see the weather did not get in the way of their adorable personalities. Harvard Photography was able to capture every detail along with the romantic chemistry between the two. Including the hysterical photo of "Indiana Jones" on an quest to remove his brides garter! The florist- Grass Roots added a punch of color with the gorgeous orange arrangements they created. I would like to thank Bia at SBB Gourmet Catering, the food and service they provided was wonderful. Christine Dahl never lets me down, she designs beautiful cakes that always taste just as good as they look. And last but certainly not least, I know I could not have done this event without the help of Nicole and her amazing team at Classic Party Rentals. I think they brought every umbrella they had in stock!!
