An Ethereal Forest

This weekend, the JG team had the pleasure of celebrating a wedding with one fabulous couple who had a vision of flowering branches towering over their dinner tables as centerpieces with floating candles at the base. This fantastic combination along with flickering luminaries created a wonderfully romantic, dreamy ethereal forest, with twinkling stars that you’d want to sleep under.

These Cherry Blossom branches bloom only two weeks per year. Mother nature was certainly looking down on us this weekend and smiling!

For the escort card table we wanted to stick with the flowering branches theme, but also add an element of softness with lots of floating candles, small clustered bouquets, and a rounded ceiling installation.

We incorporated the escort card table floral into the bridal bouquet, but added a touch of Anemone, which gives that chic contrast of white against deep purple.

Spotlighting is a great way to highlight the centerpieces. We especially like to use spotlighting for tall centerpieces to give a more dramatic finish to the space. On the dance floor, we gave our luminaries a twinkly look by using flickering battery operated LED candles. The flickering LED lights create more of an illusion of real candles and give an even warmer feel to the atmosphere than a standard LED light would.

The free-forming of branches on the Chuppah gives a more organic, natural feel that we love…and can you believe that sunset!?

Congratulations to the happy couple! And we have to give a “Thank you!” to Abigail Kirsh’s The Lighthouse and to our whole team for helping to put on a fantastic party!
