They say rain on your wedding day is good luck. It must be true because this couple’s happiness could not be dampened by a few showers.
The ceremony was originally set to take place on the front steps of the Ca’ d’Zan Mansion. Mother Nature had other ideas and when dark clouds threatened, the decision was made to move both the ceremony and the reception under cover. The Campanello, the new patio adjacent to the Terrace was the perfect spot. US Tent provided the tent and beautifully lit the inside in a wash of soft pink.
Royal purple orchids, hot pink roses, white hydrangea and lime green Fugi mums were just a few of the flowers used in this wedding. The beaming bride carried a hand tied bouquet of white hydrangea, pale lavender Misteen orchids and white mini calla lilies. Bridesmaids bouquets consisted of hydrangea, hot pink Ravel roses and deep purple orchid florets. The men’s rose boutonnieres were done in silver filigree holders that added just that special touch.
Just as the ceremony began, the sun broke through the clouds. Limelight Photography made the most of Ca’ d’Zan’s beauty and this couple’s joy and captured the day with expertise.
The rich color scheme was pulled throughout the reception…from the lavish linens to the sparkling table settings. Tables gleamed with glass cylinders filled with orchids as well as silver manzanita branches dripping with crystals and hanging votives. Very romantic!
Outside events can always be affected by the weather and alternate plans are a MUST! This bride and groom certainly made the right decision by hiring local wedding professionals, knowledgeable and capable of working quickly and effectively together when the weather made a change of plans necessary. What could have been disorganized chaos was instead quickly review and pulled together with style. Hats off to US Tent Rental, Nellie’s Catering, the staff of Ca’ d’Zan, Limelight Photography and the Flowers by Fudgie design team for a job well done!
