This past weekend we had the good fortune to design and decorate the wedding and reception for an adorable couple, Dyamond and Darrien. They were wonderful to work with and we enjoyed every bit of the journey, all the way through the design process to the fabulous implementation.
The wedding was held at The Gem Theater and the wedding was at The American Jazz Museum, both of which are in the historic 18th and Vine district of Kansas City. Dyamond chose her colors and theme to match the classic elegance of the jazz age, using red, gold and ivory as her main colors, with her bridesmaids in black. Overall, we kept the decor really simple, but the end result was gorgeous.
In addition to the decor, we were able to provide all the bridal party flowers, including this gorgeous bouquet of red roses with diamond pins in the center of the roses.
For the wedding ceremony, we put up our 10ft pipe and drape backdrop with lace curtains and a gold drape. We also brought in two short pillars and topped them with two small vases of roses. On the stairs leading up to the stage we placed 4 tall vases with gold fabric inside, topped with red flower balls.
The reception featured a 20ft backdrop with red satin drape. We brought the pillars over from the ceremony and used them again for the reception.
We really dressed the head table up with a gold candelabra that we crowned with flower ball of white hydrangea and red roses. We placed pearl and diamond pins in the center of the roses for an extra sparkle.
For the centerpieces, we used red roses in a gold vase, topped with 3 small white ostrich feathers. We draped the vases with crystal strands and placed them on top of mirrors. We finished the tables off with 3 gold mercury glass votives and sprinkles of red petals and diamond jewels.
The bridal party tables had a taller golden vase with a flower ball and two mercury glass vases with red pebbles and floating candles.
We were also able to finish off the cake with a few large roses and a little extra bling.
The last details included the ivory satin tablecloths and the red satin chair ties which we provided. We also placed a second candelabra on the guest book table, along with the toss bouquet (which was identical to the bridesmaids bouquets) to welcome the guests into the reception.
We really enjoyed working with this lovely bride and groom and the wonderful staff of The American Jazz Museum who helped pull off this beautiful celebration. Thanks for letting us be part of your special day!
