MCA Wedding

Posted on March 8th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Modern, Colorful, CB2: These were all adjectives that Christina and Jimmy used to describe the vision for their Summer wedding at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA).  We loved their direction of CB2 as inspiration and really took it upon ourselves to create an atmosphere that encapsulated that fun and contemporary style while adding our own fresh approach.

For starters, the guests found their place-cards nestled amongst a spread of white pebbles and a collection of succulents to start the night off right with a clean modern feel (and who doesn’t love succulents?)

As the sun set, the bistro lights that hung over the tables on the terrace started to glow and filled the space with an enchanting mood that only summer nights in a big city can bring about. The table centerpieces consisted of geometric terrariums, oversized glass cloches, dusty blue cylindrical vases, and long rectangular glass vases, all filled with an equally vibrant array of flowers.

The collection of flowers consisted of Protea, Garden Roses, Spray Roses, Billy-Balls, Succulents, and Dahlias, with accents of pink stock, air-plants, and geranium to add texture.

As is the case with any great wedding, the success is always found in the details.  From the beautifully designed wedding cake, inspired by the inside walls of the MCA, to the fabulously-designed table numbers all named after favorite albums of the couple, every piece of it was truly unique to this couple!
