Amanda and Tim celebrated a rockin’ wedding ceremony and reception at the Hard Rock Hotel in Chicago. It was a small event with only 18 guests, but everything was total perfection!
Amanda & Tim’s colors were colors were black, white and red and the decor was planned around a beautiful runner made with white organza and black embroidery that Amanda found on Etsy. The runner was placed over white linens and ran the length of the long rectangle table. The Chair Couture provided black covers with white sashes to complete the black and white decor. Then I added in all of the pops of red with the flowers.
For Amanda’s bouquet, I made a bouquet with Black Magic roses, burgundy mini cymbidium orchids, burgundy peonies and red amaranthus. The handle was wrapped in B&W damask fabric with a square bling buckle. Tim’s wore a mini cymbidium orchid bout and the rest of the men wore red rose bouts. The mother corsages were rose and white dendrobium orchids on pearl bracelets with red bows and the Maid of Honor had white dendrobium orchids for putting in her hair.
For the ceremony, I put red petals and red votives in the area where the couple tied the knot. In the bar area, I put petals and red votives on the highboys and red petals in 3 square vases on the coffee table.
For the reception dinner table, I basically made a bunch of different arrangements to cover the middle of the runner. I made 3 red mixed arrangements with black feather accents, 6 cylinders with submerged red mokara orchids and floating candles, 2 cylinders with submerged tulips and floating candles, 2 short round vases with floating petals and candles, 2 bubble bowls with floating roses, 5 wine-stem pillar candle holders and 20 something votive candles in clear and red glass holders surrounded by a sprinkling of petals and bling crystals. It was breath-taking–especially when all of the candles were lit and the lights were dimmed. What a beautiful tablescape!
I loved working with Amanda planning her Hard Rock Hotel wedding. I wish her and Tim a lifetime of happiness!
Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Poole!
