a modern succulent wedding - the luxe hotel

melissa and jason got married at the luxe hotel in april and we were design soul mates right from the start! their style was a perfect mesh with mine and i love the kind of client that lets us have creative control to just do what we do best!

client style: modern, sleek, sophisticated, fresh
color scheme: white, gray and all shades of green
elements: quartz, succulents, textured white ceramic vases, glass candlesticks from cb2, floating ranunculas, acrylic, wheat grass, chevron


melissa's bouquet was made up of white peonies, white japhette orchids and 2 types of green succulents (including my favorite - fuzzy succulents!)...



each boutonniere was a different type of succulent wrapped in gray faux suede trim...


bridemaids bouquets were composed of green ranunculas, rustic hydrangea and succulents...








cocktail tables held a small white ceramic vase with green vibernum and a quartz vessel with a green succulent...



for the placecard display, we created a backdrop of "floating" white ranunculas...the structure was set in gray fabric wrapped bases filled with fluffy white hydrangea...



the cards were set in an acrylic tray filled with quartz cubes (also known as selenite)...we accented the tray with green succulents for a pop of color...





instead of a pillow, the ring bearer held a white tray holding a variety of textured succulents...



we swagged a piece of sheer white fabric across the courtyard to serve as the couple's chuppah...we then hung a variety of glass orbs and test tubes filled with candles, green succulents and white ranunculas...


set on the ground down each side of the aisle was a series of low white trays filled with white pebbles and green succulents...



the ballroom was completely draped in white fabric for a clean, sophisticated feel...tables were a mix of rounds with gray linens and white lacquered rectangles...


each centerpiece setup was a composition of glass candlesticks and quartz vessels holding green succulents, along with textured white ceramic vases filled with lush white florals, succulents and modern green foliage (curled tea leaves and hosta leaves)...





we even added a green succulent to every napkin treatment to get more color in the room...




we went with a white dancefloor, as well as some white lounge banquettes and end tables for resting between dance sets...



for the cake, melody and i decided on a gray chevron pattern, accented by a green fondant succulent...i created an acrylic box filled with green wheat grass and white quartz in order to elevate the cake a bit...


all the desert stands were funky shaped acrylic pieces (actually designed by one of my past brides and custom created by a vendor of mine!)...
