Dramatic Hollywood Glam From Viva Bella Events (ii)
April 27, 2009
By: eddye

Lauren and Jordan's exciting Hollywood Glam wedding at The Phoenix in Cincinnati was inspired by a hairpiece by K. Autumn that Lauren found online. In the words of their wedding planner, Dora Manuel at Viva Bella Events ... "After that, it just all fell into place!"

more from Dora at Viva Bella Events ...

The reception featured both round and square tables with alternating red velvet and black/white patterned linens and 3 types of floral arrangements. We rented black chiavari chairs for all tables to keep something consistent at each table. The lighting designer saturated the walls with a “red fabric” pattern and the ceiling with a red mosaic design. A black and white dance floor completed the look ...

The flowers were black magic roses, black callas and fern curls complemented by black feathers for Lauren’s bouquet and white feathers for the bridesmaids bouquets.

When guests were seated for dinner, they found a chocolate dipped strawberry awaiting them at their place setting. The strawberry contained a message from the bride and groom , “Life is Unpredictable. Eat Dessert First.”

As we mentioned in the first post, Lauren (the beautiful bride) is a graphic designer and created terrific invitations and all of the paper pieces that go along with a wedding! Her website is Giddy Ink and shows just how creative she is! Really, you should take a look!

And again, from Dora ...

Before the party got underway, Lauren and Jordan shared a memorable ... choreographed ... first dance!

The total look was fierce and intricate. Uncompromising and memorable. Just like Lauren and Jordan.
