We love cherry blossoms – the perfect combination of pretty blooms and the rusticity of tree branches. Carrie and Dan wanted a natural wood and floral chuppah at their La Quinta Resort wedding; we created a structure with a blend of florals, including lots and lots of cherry blossoms. We also cascaded a lovely unfurling of tons of blush and ivory flowers at the base of the branches, too. Plus, a matching arch greeted guests at the beginning of the aisle. Along the crisp white aisle, we placed boxes holding bursts of more ivory and pink flowers.
Inside the stunning ballroom, more branches, including curly willow, formed large arrangements on the round tables, dressed with hanging glass votives. Long wood tables featured clear crystal candleholders of varying heights, offering a modern touch. Most stunning of all: A large ceiling treatment of orchids in a mixture of pink, blush and ivory. The treatment hovered over the dance floor and a gorgeous sweetheart table edged with a generous flow of more flowers. Catch all the glory in photos by Callaway Gable, below.
