Modern, Luxe Wedding in La Crosse
When I first met with Hannah she described wanting a wedding design that was clean, modern and neutral. What instantly drew me in was her idea to have a macron display with champagne awaiting her guests as they entered the venue. Hannah knew that she wanted her guests to have an experience like no other and that she wanted to find moments to let the design of her wedding shine.
At that first meeting I pitched the idea to actually have this grand display of the macrons with picks that would allow them to be set on the glass. They would be both beautiful and functional as this would then serve as their escort card table. At the end of each of the picks was a guest's name and table number. I loved watching the guests in delight at this fun gesture from the couple. Many of the guests commented on what a great idea it was!
As guests turned to enter into the ballroom they were greeted by a monochromatic balloon wall adorned with baby's breath-- surely the perfect photo op. Entering into the ballroom the light modern palette let the candles shine and the florals work their magic. The center of the room was anchored with a King's table for the wedding party to sit at. The table was laden with a multitude of candles flickering their romantic light upon more than 50 white stemmed roses. Above the table we hung a baby's breath cloud dripping with glass crystals that allowed more of the candle light to bounce around the room. Truly this table is one of the best tables we have ever designed!
All of the guest tables were designed to be very neutral- set with a white linen, a coordinating white napkin in a waterfall fold and neutral stationary items. This allowed the warm gold tones of the beaded rimmed chargers and candle vessels to soften the modern feel. The floral arrangements were designed to be the focal point of the room. The varying heights staggered throughout the room help to make the room feel more intimate and kept the design flowing throughout the space. The dark greenery, white blooms and mauve focal florals against the crisp white, taupe and blush palette created moments of romance.
As the evening fell and the guests started to mingle after dinner, they were invited to utilize the selfie Photo Booth and dance the night away with the sounds from Blue Water King's Band.
Working with Hannah and Ben was nothing short of amazing. Hannah's eye for design and her ability to see the vision made it such a wonderful experience for me. I loved that I could give her an idea and she would trust me to make the vision come to life. Together we built a vendor dream team that kept the day true to her vision and helped the day to run smoothly.
Cheers to Hannah and Ben!
