Today’s inspiration shoot comes to us from the wedding capital of the world – Las Vegas! But this is no quickie I do, this is a look at what you really can do when you design a glam wedding worthy of the big lights of Las Vegas.
Wedding planner, Andrea Eppolito Events shared with us how this destination wedding inspiration shoot came together.
What I loved most about this experience was the massive amount of collaboration that took place. Each and every element of this design was influenced by the others, creating a beautiful story, visually.
With Paris fresh in our hearts and mind, we began to design a French blue hued wedding reception. My dear friends at Rivea, a French restaurant at the top of The Delano Hotel, offered us their private dining room, appropriately inspired by the French coastline. The team at By Dzign meditated on the two Panetone Colors of the Year, Serenity Blue and Rose Quartz. We took that base to the next level, adding deeper tones and richer hues for winter…A combination that was both classic and dreamy, leading us down a rabbit hole of gorgeousness for our florals.
Our bride’s gorgeous Olvi lace dress, gifted to us by Couture Bride, played an equally important part of the design on the invitation, with the lace pattern peaking through the laser cutting. The invitations were build to be removed from the gatefold, revealing additional inserts along with a custom RSVP cards set with enough space for each guest to fill in their name and entree selection.
As a team, it was so important that each element of the wedding design served to highlight and enhance the others. The striking v-neck and illusion back lines of our bride’s dress visually paired with the tall pillars of floral that set apart her ceremony site. These in turn paired with the dramatic windows of the Delano over looking the Las Vegas strip, creating the perfect backdrop for a destination wedding.
If the room was inspired by the coast line, we wanted the ceremony to feel more rustic and provincial. We kept the space elegant and clean, with only two large and wild floral sculptures at the front. Long table had square, gold vases edged with an abstract design. Each held an arrangement of hydrangeas along with peach, coral, and blush roses. These blooms were accented with seeded eucalyptus and red hanging amaranthus, ideal for bringing in a touch of autumn. Chunky candle holders with live pillar candles and long candlesticks with live flame dripping everywhere (literally all over the linen) were interspersed for a beautiful glow and added romance. Round tables had a gold compote vase filled with ivory hydrangea along side the blush, peach, and coral roses. Spray roses were added for texture and dimension, and the pieces were accented with seeded eucalyptus, red hypericum berries and red hanging amaranthus. Gold candle sticks with live candles and a few gold mercury votives gave us a glow.
Each guest’s name was laser cut and placed at the tip of the place setting; both a gorgeous addition to the table and a personalized keepsake.
Transitioning into the reception, the blue linens played off the natural blue decor of the room creating the a comforting, relaxing environment that felt “just right”. The pops of color found in the centerpieces and bride’s evening bouquet added just the right amount of contrast without distracting from the beauty of the bride!
