Vizcaya Daydream

One of our all time favorite venues in Miami is Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. With such a beautiful landscape, the view speaks for itself, but this year we teamed up with Joan Love of Love.Style.Events to create an unforgettable and romantic wedding reception for Alana and Max. The couple said their "I-Do's" as the sun set on a perfect evening below a classic white draped chuppa.
To finish off the look of the simple draping we added floral clusters in ivory and pale pink on the legs using lush hydrangea, delicate peonies and garden roses with touches of peach. Lining the aisle were groupings of twinkling candles in glass cylinders which played off of the acrylic chiavari chairs perfectly.
As guests moved through the massive mansion they were greeted by this modern styled arrangement on the place card table in one of our favorite white high gloss urns. The pale blue linen provided such a unique color compliment to the arrangements and fit in with the surroundings of the stately house beautifully.
The oversized reception tent was filled with drama! The ceiling was draped in white chiffon fabric and accented by pale pink lighting and crystal chandeliers along the length. Our teams covered the tables in soft ivory satin and ruffled rosette linens. The soft colors were accented perfectly with pink napkins. All of these colors were mirrored in the arrangements: lush florals of hydrangea, peonies, garden roses, tulips and dripping greens atop delicate crystal candelabras with twinkling pillar candles.
Smaller crystal candelabras accented the head tables and small floral clusters finished off the look.
We want to thank Maloman studios for the stunning photography. This was such a great event to create and it was captured perfectly!

Rose Garden

We work with cut roses all the time at Parrish Designs, hundreds of colors and varieties with little or no thought to what they must be like in their natural growing state. This weekend I had the pleasure of being a guest at my dear friend Jack Pierson's charming house in the Hamptons, where I was able to stroll through his amazing rose garden and experience roses as they are really meant to be seen. Adding to the whole experience, I assisted him as he entered the Southhampton rose competition, where he proceeded to win 11 ribbons and 1 medal. The following images are a story board of the day's events and the beauty of his amazing garden. I will not be able to work with roses again without picturing how gorgeous they look climbing and trailing around a garden instead of stuck in a vase. Enjoy!!!!
