The clear chairs add a modern touch and keep sightlines unobstructed.

The wedding party and family sat at a large estate table. Instead of a single centerpiece, the table was dressed with a series of tall displays along with bouquets for a lush tablescape.
Guest tables featured white floral in clear glass vases. Each vase had a "collar" of white blooms at its narrowest point,
Instead of mixing floral types, these arrangements cluster like floral in various areas of the arrangement. The blooms include hydrangea, phalaeonopsis orchids, Polar Star roses, tulips and callas. Lighting played a powerful role; floral is pin-spotted, and lavender washes put a glow on the dance floor.
