Notes...part III



What are we up to now? Saturday? So...wedding day for Lindsay and Erik! At the beautiful new Hotel 1000 (which, by the way, is in the same management group as The Woodmark and Willows, two of my other favorites. I didn't get into any of the guest rooms, but I've heard they have programmable art work so that you can choose what you have on the walls, and that the tubs fill with a fountain from the ceiling. Also, a virtual reality golf club that would be such a fun bachelor party!).

I see a lot of dresses, but I have to say that Lindsay's stopped me in my tracks. It turns out that she works for Oscar de la Renta, and it was a one-of-a-kind couture dress by the one and only. OF COURSE I will be showing pictures as soon as I get some from the photographer.

But flowers...very modern and clean to go with the setting and to let the beautiful bride and dress shine. Pristine whites (hydrangea, tulips, ranunculus, calla lilies) with green cymbidium orchids.

The details...each mother carried a white bouquet with individual accents. Pink cymbidiums; lily grass loops and maroon cones; and lily of the valley, all mixed with "Avalanche" roses.


A close-up of the mother of the groom's bouquet. I warned you that I'm in love with lily of the valley!

The ceremony area, from a few different viewpoints.


Simple, modern, "glowey" centerpieces. And a great idea for working on the budget-the cylinders that were on the pedestals for the ceremony were moved to the tables for the reception and completed the set of three.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Oh my goodness, I'm, going to be waiting with baited breath to see the dress! Oscar de la Renta is my absolute absolute absolute favourite!

I love the flowers, they're gorgeous. The first photo is just stunning.
