Minty

Sunday, March 24th, 2013

This is another wedding I did for Jaclyn. Please see this post for her other wedding.

For this wedding, Jaclyn said she likes The Raffles as The Raffles is. So my job was to bring in decoration items that enhances the venue, and at the same time introduce the color green to her wedding theme.

I chose a pastel, minty shade of green- this shade worked well with the warm lighting and ambience of the room.

Below are the decoration items that I have customized for Jaclyn’s wedding:

The table-of-honor: I always favor long table setting over round ones.

The floral arrangement is clean, modern and non- overwhelming, and the stems arrangement gave me  extra green details that I need for this  theme:

I use  mint green lanterns- they are classic and harmonious with the surrounding of  The Raffles:

I shall end this post with a picture of the soothing mint green lanterns under natural lighting. I like the freshness of this shade of  green- it’s tranquil and calming. I hope you are relaxed by this beautiful color too!

Merry & Poppin’

Lone Pine Hotel Penang yellow garden wedding2

Location: Lone Pine Hotel, Penang

I included a good dosage of Jaclyn-ness in this wedding. Jaclyn, for your information, is the lovely bride.

She is a happy person with a beautiful heart (and has striking good looks like a movie star). She likes quirky little details (like grosgrain ribbon). And she would love to have a happy and perhaps not so conventional wedding.

So, putting all things together, this is how I styled her wedding:

I named this wedding theme “Merry & Poppin’”. I used white Pom-poms as her wedding flower because they are cute and happy-lookin’; and also to symbolize a wedding celebration that is “poppin’ with happiness”

Floral arrangement on the table- of -honor:

White pom-poms + pale yellow vase + grey grosgrain ribbon:

We had roses too- to add a touch of classic to the overall look:

On colors- I used grey (table linen + ribbon) for the chic effect; and pale yellow (vases)  to add a warm hue to the grey and white (Pom-poms) design.

And I would always wait for sunset- to enjoy that surreal moment where the soft natural light adds its magic touch to the design:
