I loved Tina right from the start! She has such a sweet personality, wonderful style, a great sense of humor, and is of Italian heritage - needless to say our meetings took a while longer than usual: we had so much fun talking, designing and styling her 25th anniversary party at the Four Seasons Hotel ballroom.
Tina and Kevin envisioned a party with closest friends and family (including of course the original wedding party of 10), with great food and drink, in a beautiful setting. No better place than the Four Seasons Hotel to achieve this goal!
Celebrating their "silver" anniversary, we wanted to incorporate lots of splashes of silver throughout the room. We brought in silver linens and chairs, used silver votive candles and chargers, and even sprinkled in some silver foliage in the floral center pieces. The room sure triggered a big WOW by many and in Tina's words, we "could have not executed (her) vision more perfectly!"
But see for yourself! Thank you again Azzura, for the stunning images!
We designed a swank cocktail lounge as part of the ballroom, sectioning it off from the dinner area with sheer draped walls. To create a magical illusion of a true wall, the drapes were lit up with strong amber colored up-lighting cans. Large willow trees adorned with crystal strands "softened" to walls and brought texture into the ballroom. Lots of white leather couches with side tables invited the guest to a cocktail in comfort ...
The wall up-lighting, lots of candles, and center piece up-lighting made the whole ballroom aglow in a warm light. It brought out the sparkle from the linens and the crystal strands - what a gorgeous atmosphere!!
For the centerpieces we used mainly lush garden roses, dahlias, hydrangea, orchids, and trailing amaranthus in shades of peach, green, and chocolate. Silver foliage complemented the color of the linens.
The wonderful couple Tina and Kevin!
