New York Sophistication. Southern Charm and simplicity. One might think: “Never the twain shall meet!”, but at Event Design we yelled “Yes, Please!”
MaryAnn and Chris approached us looking for assistance in pulling together their Davis Island Garden Club Event. Wanting to leverage the natural beauty of the property for their exclusively-outdoor ceremony and reception, they sought the bold compliments of Coral, Navy and White for their fall affair. To achieve this North-meets-South juxtaposition, we paired white linens with satin navy blue runners to offer a bold, clean line on the table. Rustic lanterns compliments the natural surroundings and offered the “backyard home-style wedding” the couple was looking for. Hydrangeas, coral and peach standard and garden roses offered more natural elements to the tablescape and were delicately complimented by seeded eucalyptus for a pale green finish that didn’t compete with their overall scheme. The table was finished with a coral satin napkin set with an off-the-table overhang offering a modern, relaxed aesthetic.
The sweet finish to the evening – the most incredibly dessert display we have ever seen created by famiily – rum balls, petit fours complete with monogram and an assortment of home-baked cookies were beautifully displayed and smelled even better than it looked. We count it a “win” that managed to walk away without testing the baker’s recipes *smirk*! And, of course, this entry wouldn’t be complete without a shout-out to the groom’s cake. Chris’ professional hockey career inspired the couples super-fun hockey cake – sweet!
