PASSIONATE PURPLE.   The inspiration for the wedding of Danielle and Michael was indeed that very luscious color in all its many hues, such as  blackberry, mauve, magenta, lavender, current, plum, aubergine, violet, grape and morning glory.

The bride envisioned a large tree dripping with crystals as her guests’ first impression.  Rising to the challenge (quite literally), we “grew” a tree using grapevine, lemon leaves, hydrangea, roses, orchids, delphinium, lilac and stock in every shade of purple we could gather!  Then we draped crystals and orchid garlands from every branch for an opulent garden display.  The tree was placed atop an antique mahogany table in the ballroom foyer; its limbs magically extending over the arriving guests, nearly encasing the sparkling chandelier directly above.  A true show stopper!

But, why stop with the purple power there?

Above the ceremony-in-the-round floated a spellbinding Chuppah, enrobed with hundreds of magnificent purple blossoms and detailed with sparkling crystals which caught the dramatic light illuminating the canopy.   Dozens of flickering votive candles hanging at various heights added romance to the setting.
