Okay, if you aren’t already sitting down…you probably should be. I’ve saved the best of today’s wedding for last. The reception tables. These reception tables are quite possibly the most beautiful tables I’ve ever seen in my entire life and have completely inspired me to start collecting chandeliers as a hobby.  A chandelier in every room of my house, maybe two. My poor husband.

Jose Villa, bless you for sending me a wedding that has made me the happiest blogger on the block.

Unique touches included a vintage farm house door from Provence France that was used to display the escort cards.  Michelle purchased vintage door knobs that I tied to satin ribbon and hung from the door.  We also used old wine and milk crates to display parasols and the wedding ceremony programs.  French vintage hand held school chalkboards were used as menu boards for the french macaron station and in the ceremony area for beverage menus and directions signs. 

Michelle picked a bold and beautiful palette of colors for the wedding, Wedgewood Blue, Peach and Creams.  They were stunning against the dark mahogany dinner tables and chairs and popped against the floral decor elements.  But their piece d’resistance was the chandelier ceiling Michelle worked on creating with Jon Retsky from Got Light.  Featuring over 150 different varieties of crystal chandeliers, they were suspended in the foliage covered lattice above the dinner tables.  It was a beautiful during the day, but in the evening when the chandeliers were turned on… it was simply stunning.  Fleur de Lisa designed the 4 tier wedding cake and it was displayed on an old BV estate wine barrel.  Each guest received a bottle of BV Cabernet Sauvignon Wine as a welcome favor from the bride and groom.
