Twenty-foot trees line the aisle, creating a romantic canopy in the hotel ballroom.
Fresh garden vines are wrapped around the tree trunks ascending up and into the branches as well as along the sides of the path, which is accented with ferns and 100 floating candles in vases of differing heights.
The chuppa consists of a large double-arched arbor created from natural branches, forming a canopy of hanging white delphinium, antique hydrangea and roses. An antique embroidered tablecloth belonging to the bride’s grandmother hangs from the arches, adding a sentimental feeling for the family.
The cocktail hour is transformed into a rustic- chic garden with hedge walls and topiaries.
The hedge features the couple's monogram.

The ballroom features three different table designs, including rounds and rectangles.
One design consists of 72” round tables with floor-length white fluffy rosette linens. The centerpiece is an inverted glass vase with rose cymbidium orchids rising up in the center. The event team tied grapewood branches at the top with hanging crystals and completed the look with topiary of roses, antique hydrangea and orchids. A square mirror at the base reflects the flowers above. Rustic wood medallion chairs with white pads complete the look

Another design features 16-foot custom-crafted rustic wood tables adorned with two large florals on crystal pedestals with floating candles at the base. Grapevine intertwin down the table with accents of glass tubes, each having a touch of florals. Mercury glass cylinders and votives with floating candles finish the look.

The classic combination of floral and candles.
Ivory chiffon on natural chiavari chairs creates a romantic contrast, each having flowing ruffles and floral accents. Above each of these tables are 8-foot dramatic chandeliers of orchids.
