Monochromatic Purples at Meson Sabika
Published on July 18th, 2011
Kristen & Marc's wedding was at Community United Methodist Church and their reception was at Meson Sabika in Naperville. Their colors were shades of purple with black and white/ivory. The flowers included roses, spray roses and callas. Kristen's bouquet was a beautiful mix of vendela roses, ivory spray roses, white mini callas, lavender spray roses and Ocean Song and Avant Garde roses. The bridesmaids carried bouquets of mostly purple blooms including Avant Garde roses, Blue Curiosa roses, Ocean Song roses, eggplant callas and lavender roses with accents of ivory Vendela roses. The bouts and corsages were all made with callas or spray roses to match the bouquets. The ceremony decor included an aisle runner and 2 stunning altarpieces which had allium, tall callas, hydrangea, roses, ti leaf, and larkspur in them. We later moved these pieces to the escort card and gift tables at the reception. The reception was at the Pavilion at Meson Sabika, which is actually where my wedding reception was too! It was nice being back there...and it looked just as beautiful as it did nearly 3 years ago when Matt and I tied the knot. I digress. For Kristen and Marc's wedding, we provided our signature monogrammed card holder vase for the gifts and made the escort cards. The sweetheart table was decorated with lavender petals, votives and a vase for the bouquets. There were two styles of centerpieces for the event, one style was a short full mixed arrangement, with black ti leaf wrap inside, white hydrangea and lavender roses, and some callas. The other style was a trio of cylinder vases with submerged callas in 3 colors--white callas, eggplant callas, and Picasso callas--all of which had floating candles on top. The linens for the space were provided by our friends at The Chair Couture (who also did our linens there years ago!) So it was nice seeing them there and it looked beautiful. I really enjoyed working with Kristen to plan her wedding flowers and think everything turned out just beautiful. Congrats to the new Mr. & Mrs. Brilliandt!
