She’s a bartender with a degree in fashion. He is a rockstar from the UK. When Erica and Mark selected the Powel Crosley estate for their spring-time wedding, Erica knew just the theme: the Roaring 20’s Prohibition Era.
Her exquisite 20’s inspired lace gown was complimented beautiful by her one-of-a-kind brooch bouquet assembled by her mother.
Guests arrived at the estate and were greeted by an authentic vintage car… just a little something to “set the mood”, one might say. Their ceremony, which took place waterside on the estate’s beautiful property, featured white hydrangeas and feather plumes for some whimsy, of course. At the alter, large floral pieces featuring hydrangea, various roses and hanging amaranthis framed our couple as they exchanged their vows.
After the ceremony, guests (who, incidentally, arrived in period-inspired threads themselves!) enjoyed the sounds of big band music, delicious appetizers and non-alocoholic beverages – this is the prohibition, after all! But that’s not all – even the client’s vendors were asked to arrive in their 20’s inspired best to commit to the overall illusion!
The reception, held in the estate’s main room, was reminiscent of the period – highlighting the property’s architectural beauty and cloaking the room in blush pink satin, champagne/antique golds, large floral centerpieces and mercury glass.
After dinner, guests were moved to the estate’s patio before the “big reveal”: our team transformed the space previously used for dinner into a speakeasy where guests celebrated the end of this event’s “prohibition”! Meanwhile, the most beautiful dessert room we have ever seen (or smelled, for that matter) retained the opulence and color scheme held through dinner to give guests the contrast between “high society” and “basement speakeasy”.
We absolutely L-O-V-E-D designing this event and thank each and every vendor for their involvement in making this fantastic event a reality!
