With a new year comes a whole slew of new weddings to delve into and from what we’ve seen so far, we’re pretty sure 2011 is completely raising the bar to a whole new level of gorgeous. Case in point, this elegant Boston affair that is boasting some serious art in the form of florals designed by the insanely talented Datura – A Modern Garden. It seems that everything they touch turns to wedding gold and we are seriously smitten with their latest creation. See the FULL wedding captured by Melissa Robotti and a whole lot more of that wedding gold we speak of in the gallery.
Zoe and Carolina were married on June 6, 2010 at the Colonnade in Boston, MA. The couple live in New York City and much of the planning was executed by Zoe’s mom, Julie Arnow. She designed the whole paper story, coordinated the linens and gave me creative direction throughout. I just loved being a part of this incredible celebration. We designed three distinct tablescapes – in one, hand-tied giant allium are accented with callas and mokara orchids and support a globe with purple vanda orchids and a floating candle. This table featured satellite designs of burgandy peony and purple vanda. Our second table design featured the same flowers in a tall radial design with graceful lines. And for the rectangular tables we created armatures of curly willow and wove them with green anthurium, purple vanda orchids and fuchsia phaelonopsis orchids – accenting these tall components were clusters of burgandy peony, eggplant callas and purple vanda orchids.
