Ramune and Eric were just celebrated their beautiful fall wedding at the Danada House in Wheaton. It was a stunning Autumn affair with a variety of flowers including callas, roses, orchids, mums, Celosia, and monkey tail.
Ramune’s bouquet was one of my favorites ever! It had a mix of Black Magic dark red roses, Quicksand champagne roses, burgundy Celosia, monkey tails, orange mokara orchids, and orange and burgundy callas with an ivory-satin wrapped handle with swirling pearl treatment. For the bridesmaids bouquets we did a mix of orange and red mokara orchids, orange and red callas and deep red and champagne roses with brown mum accents. Their handles were wrapped in deep red satin ribbon to match their dresses. They were just stunning. The bouts and corsages were made with roses and orchids and worked perfectly with everything else.
For the ceremony, we tied burgundy callas to some of the chairs with raffia to line the aisle. Two altarpieces sat atop my set of ornate columns to frame in Ramune and Eric as they exchanged their vows. It was perfect.
For the reception, we basically decorated the entire first floor of the mansion! We put bubble bowls with floating orchids, petals and floating candles on the highboy tables, and votives with petals on the cabaret tables, mantles and down the hallway. We lined the escort card table with petals and added a beautiful entryway arrangement to the foyer to greet guests as they walked through the front door.
In the atrium, we put simple cylinder vases with mokara orchids, bear and lily grasses inside on each guest table surround by votive candles. We added votives to the cake table and head tables as well. The head table also got decked out with vases for the bouquets which looked fabulous when they were all put in place!
The cake was awesome…or should I say the CAKES were awesome! There was a Lithuanian cake that looked like a tree and a 3-tiered square chocolate-iced cake. I added flowers to the second tier of the chocolate cake and some petals into the bow. It was such a cool cake!
I loved working with Ramune! She was such a joy to work with and her and Eric were so overjoyed with how everything came out. It was such a great wedding and I love Danada House and highly recommend this venue to everyone!
Congrats Ramune and Eric!
