Real Wedding by Lisa Vorce
October 20, 2008

After a week of pink, I am totally ready to kick up my feet and basque in the glory of a white inspired wedding. And this one, by Lisa Vorce of Oh How Charming! is just about as beautiful as they get.

I am sure that most of you know by now that I have such a love affair with Lisa's work. She is pure talent and the weddings that she crafts are beyond belief. Remember Elizabeth Messina's wedding that Lisa designed?  Genius.

And, she's done it again...feast your eyes people!

From Lisa...

This was yet another one of my favorite weddings. Sara and Ian are by far some of my delightful clients. They had such a great aesthetic and allowed us to be very daring with their decor. Sara and Ian had booked the historic Paramour estate for their wedding which was the perfect backdrop for their grand vision.

When they originally came to me with several tear sheets that were very Tony Duquette inspired -- I knew exactly what they wanted...a very chic and elegant event, but with an eclectic twist. We mixed and matched several core design elements to create the general vibe Sara and Ian wanted...mercury glass, an abundance of phalaenopsis orchids, succulents, vintage china, mirrored surfaces, zebra patterns, and a very Viceroy-esque monogram. It was gorgeous!!!

For the cocktail reception -- we paired rustic dark wood furniture from both Raj Tents and Barker Decor Service, with an abundance of residential elements (birdcages, candles, zebra rugs).

The mercury glass and the vintage china paired with that shot of zebra print...lets just say, I want my entire world to look like this wedding. Super chic with it's ornate touches and pure white details. So gorgeous.
