"Kim and LB opted for some pre-ceremony portraits around the Inn of the Five Graces, a beautiful location with so many gorgeous details"
Are you ready for the good stuff? Here are some fabulous detail shots from Kim and LB's wedding. Aren't they dashing?
Kim and LB opted for some pre-ceremony portraits around the Inn of the Five Graces, a beautiful location with so many gorgeous details!
Wedding Paper Divas provided all of the stationery. Kim chose a beautiful "Royal Monogram" thermographed invite and menu. The raised print on the thick cards stock was just luscious! Instead of one long runner, we wanted "place mat" runners that striped across the place settings, so I made custom runners out of silk Dupioni fabric in a rich Sangria Red color. They brought warmth to the room and really popped off the chocolate Bengaline linens!
How about those hanging flowers arrangements?!? Oh! They just made the room look so snazzy! I loved that we were able to hang them directly over the long tables to really define the space! I really am a sucker for super long dining tables!
Marisa of A Passion Flower kept the centerpieces rustic in a beautiful wood box, but pumped up the glam with gorgeous flowers like Mokara Orchids, Gloriosa Lilies, Dahlias, Bells of Ireland, Hypericum Berry, Celosia, Flam Callas and a variety of roses! What are those crazy green balls, you ask? Well, Kim and LB hail from Oklahoma where "Horse Apples" grow by the dozen. Since they were the perfect pop of Chartreuse green, they hauled bags of them to Santa Fe to grace their tables!
Check out this amazing cake, courtesy of the baking prowess and artistry of Maggie Faralla. It almost looks too pretty to eat!
