For two grooms who wanted an edgy, architectural look to their wedding floral, Janet Flowers Wedding and Event Design created striking floral in rich reds.
Each table features a different centerpiece.
The color palette included reds, burgundy, salmon, onyx and platinum to create the 15 different centerpieces.
The arrangements included unconventional elements such as metal rocks, crushed glass, wires and sisal.
Vessels included iron containers, black trays, glass orbs and glass vases.

In keeping with the "nightclub" mood, the floral team tops metal lamps with white floral for an edgy look.
Even the low arrangements are dramatic, with white hydrangeas, white roses and white peonies in a glass globe wrapped with a silver band.
