And this wedding, is no different...

From Lisa...

The dinner reception was beyond gorgeous. Sharon and Ashley at Floracopia created stunning residential-like floral arrangements using an insane amount of crisp white phaleonopsis orchids, dutch hydrangea, and just the tiniest mix of succulents for a little unexpected detailing. The arrangements were housed in an eclectic mix of mercury glass and smaller vintage china vessels. Barker Decor cut custom mirrored tops for all of our round tables which added the perfect amount of sparkle to the dinner reception.

For the china and glassware, we used all platinum patterned china, platinum banded glassware, and a gorgeous platinum banded charger from my friends at Tabella.  Carlos and Anna at Tabella also supplied the perfectly simple "vertical pintuck" linens which were a great backdrop for the eclectic mix of decor on each table. darlings Sara and Ian allowed me to use a zebra napkin on half of our tables (white hemstitch on the others). It was the little nod to Tony Duquette that we needed to complete our look.

The place settings are to die for, the collection of mercury glass stemware and accents, the perfect parasols...even the stinking Jimmy Choo's, oh my! I have looked at these pictures a dozen times and each time, I see something different. Another beautiful detail that went into this incredible day.
