Nicki and Matt’s wedding was one for the books (and magic on the eyes!) We are so happy that they hired Miller + Miller to capture it so we can relive it through the beautiful images.
Hotel Arista looked amazing–there was no detail missed. The flowers, linens, draping, lighting, chairs…just total perfection.
Let’s talk about the ceremony… Our four-post arch was draped with fabric and we carefully hung Nicki’s glam chandelier. This was a fun challenge as I was 9 months pregnant when we did this wedding so my team really helped out!
Cocktail area did not disappoint… The foyer’s credenza was accented with three tall orchid and branch centerpieces and a custom chalkboard sign (that I made!) with beautiful draping behind. Small accent arrangements sat atop each highboy and cabaret table.
The reception was magical… They orientated the ballroom vertically instead of horizontally (which is the norm) and I loved this orientation for their reception. There was movement and it better showcased their king’s table, the band and the other special sections within the ballroom (including a vodka ice luge).
Metallic touches of silver, gold and champagne complimented the purple, lavender, white and cream flowers. A minimum of nine candles adorned every guest table. Everything flowed beautifully and there was a combination of short and tall centerpieces bringing interest and visual height to the space.
The lighting was a combination of colorful uplights and candles galore–and it worked perfectly. Everything looked just polished and glamorous without being stuffy and over-the-top.
We are so glad Nicki and Matt chose us to do their wedding. We loved being a part of it and it is one of our favorite Arista weddings to date. It is always a bonus when they also choose one of our favorite photographers as well!
