This dazzling destination wedding took place on New Year’s Eve at the Ritz Carlton Beach Club. It was a gorgeous all-white wedding with a touch of sparkle—elegant and festive!
The wedding itself took place on the lawn with a cocktail hour happening afterward. The reception followed the cocktail hour at the Ritz in their one-of-a-kind Ca D’Zan Room! The wedding ceremony was lovely and poignant, as the bride and groom’s children stood up with them.
This all-white wedding was truly spectacular. We added touches of bling to the bride’s slight cascade bouquet of garden roses and orchids. More bling was used when we added a collar of pretty pearls under the bridesmaids’ hand-tied bouquet of the same flowers. Both bouquets were splendid! Simple white dendrobium orchids were added to the bride’s daughter’s hair by the Salon at the Ritz Carlton for an additional special touch!
For the ceremony, we used our bamboo canopy with all white flowers on the upper corners. It really dressed it up and gave it a very elegant look. A pretty pattern was designed with rose petals on the aisle which was really eye-catching. To continue the elegant, white theme, white hydrangea were used at the back of the aisle. It was really beautiful!
The cocktail tables had a single open garden rose on each table. It was a simple and pretty touch, just right for the hour long time of toasting and fellowship after the ceremony!
The reception was at the main hotel in the Ritz Carlton’s Ca D’Zan Room. All white arrangements of hydrangea and open garden roses were designed in a low glass cylinder with a band of sparkly bling around the bottom. We also used a little of the silver curly ting for some additional sparkle and to make them a little more festive for the New Year’s Eve celebration. Floating candles were placed on each table with submerged white orchids, making an overall soft and very romantic look!
The couple and their family sat at a U-shaped feasting style table with the bride’s bouquet on a clip so that it could trail over the front of the table…we love to repurpose flowers for our brides! Several smaller arrangements and candles were worked around it as well.
A good time was had by all, and everyone was still dancing as the New Year was rung in! We were thrilled to be a part of this couple’s wedding day and New Year! We were also thrilled to hear the great feedback from them!
