The Ritz Carlton Denver Wedding
If you live in Denver you are probably aware there is a brand new Ritz Carlton. It just opened in mid-January! We had our first wedding there this past weekend, Feb. 9. Lovely couple with fabulous taste. A special Thank-you to Sara for giving us so much creative range with her flowers! Also a warm thank-you to everyone at the Ritz for all their help. The wedding was a huge success, no doubt due to the vendors that worked as a team.
Michelle Gillette of Dramatic Events was the coordinator - we LOVE working with her!
Dave Russell took the fabulous photographs - we LOVE working with Dave. Dave sent over a slideshow this morning, check it out!
Sara & Paul - The Ritz Carlton Denver
Also, Dave's blog entry: Sara & Paul
Sara carried a cascading bouquet of Hawaiian dendrobrium orchids, cymbidium orchids and cattleya orchids - all white. Paul wore a boutonniere of dendrobrium orchids and seeded eucalyptus. Their ceremony took place in front of an arch decorated with white and sheer gold fabrics, hanging votive candles and all white flowers - lilies, polo roses, orchids, lysimachia, freesia, ranunculus with seeded eucalyptus. We lined the aisle with rose petals and tied off the back of the aisle with a sheer gold ribbon attached to two topiaries. The topiaries also had the all white flower motif. The reception centerpieces were luscious wreaths surrounding an amber glass urn that had a sparkling candle. The flowers included tulips, orchids, polo roses, freesia, lysimachia, ranunculus, lilies, ranunculus, with variegated pitt and seeded eucalyptus. The Ritz Carlton pastry chef created the cake, between two tiers we had roses and freesia flush with the edges - quite dramatic.
The overall room had such a warm feeling with all the gold and amber accents. Be sure to notice the beautiful menu cards and place settings designed by Michelle Gillette.
