Arianne and Chris are married…..
I have gotten to know Arianne and Chris along with the families over the past year and a half and I was excited to see all the hard work that we have invested in, come to light on their big day back in February. Arianne had always envisioned sharing her first dance with Chris under the Chihuly in The Vinoy’s Grand Ballroom. The details were just breathtaking and the aurora in the room that night was magical! For the wedding we chose a color palate of blush, cream and gold with a splash of dark pink. To set the tone for the wedding, Alicia with A & P Designs, designed a custom monogram that we used throughout the wedding stationery from the save-the-dates to the menus and escort cards. The flowers were timeless and elegant, Barb with Artistry Designs Group, created centerpieces to compliment the pink cameo linens from BBJ Linens and the elegance of the ballroom. Arianne and Chris also incorporated a few special touches, a few that were even surprises for their families and guests! For instance, their cake topper was thought of by the groom’s cousin and brought all the way from Brazil. There was even a belly dance performance to pay honor to the Bride’s Persian heritage. Another great inclusion, was Terry Klaaren, who is a artist who paints “in the moment”. This would make a great keepsake to treasure forever! Everyone had such a great time and it was sad to see the evening come to an end, but I was so grateful to be a part of their special day! One of the funniest and unsuspecting moments of the evening was during the Garter and Bouquet Toss, Chris who is in Med School, decided to get dress in surgical attire to remove the garter! It was hilarious and everyone got a kick out of it!
