Blair & Mark – Indian Wells Country Club Wedding
Fairytales do come true!
It’s a great feeling when you are able to look back at the design and planning journey with a Bride & Groom and their families and feel so much happiness and fondness for the whole wedding day. Vision Events works so hard at trying to make sure that not only the clients vision is realized, but that we are able to enhance those expectations. With this bride, that came so easy.
Their ceremony was held at the beautiful St. Francis of Assisi Church in La Quinta. The bride wore a gorgeous Disney designer gown, with her keepsake bouquet custom-made with purple calla’s, wrapped in satin ribbon and blessed with a family heirloom jewelry piece.
The Indian Wells Country Club was a great setting for an outdoor cocktail party that stretched the whole terrace with breathtaking views of the La Quinta mountains. All of the guests enjoyed the cocktail party with the backdrop of laughter and great conversation. Under lit cocktail tables adorned with beautiful plum and white rose petal table cloths, florals in square mercury containers, lit jeweled hurricane and mercury votives. Once our Bride and Groom returned for their Grand Entrance, all guests were asked to view their seating assignments from the custom designed framed mirror seating chart, designed by our good friend at House of Designs.
Just like a fairytale, these two were meant to meet and quickly knew they were destined to live ‘happily ever after’! With their story laying the groundwork for a dreamy event, we draped most of the Reception ballroom in chiffon white, with an accented focal point behind the Bride and Groom Sweetheart Table of draperies in Purple Velvet with Silver adornments. We then created a table layout for 200 guests of “X’s and O’s” with the X tables draped in gorgeous silver sequined cloths to the floor, and the O’s in luxurious purple floor length satin.
Silver candelabra’s with drop crystals were the centerpieces for each table with either taper lit candles or gorgeous florals of brightly colored hyrdrangeas, iris, roses and purple callayilies . With a touch of sparkle the table settings consisted of silver leaf chargers, purple stain napkins with crystal Swarovski-like napkins rings and each place setting had a coordinated menu that matched all of the paper goods from the gorgeous hand-made and designed invitations, table numbers, menu’s, etc.
To complete the look Vision Events decorated the four corners of the main area with gorgeous lacquered chandeliers adorned with vintage crystals. The cake table over cloth was custom-made by VE’s talented team with magical under lighting. The cake was a gorgeous four tier beauty from Jensen’s bakery with diamonds, rose petals in white butter cream and a custom silhouette cake topper picked by our Bride. The table was dusted with purple, edible butterflies again tying in some of the Bride’s personality. The cake stand was created by Vision Events team and set the foundation for such a beautiful table.
The photo backdrop designed by Vision Events, with the canvas storybook artwork done by Artistic Expressions encapsulated the theme of the wedding memorably.
Vision’s team didn’t stop there….they created a ‘lit’ heart glittered art piece placed in the recessed area to surprise the Bride and Groom as they were now officially “Mr” and “Mrs”! It was a Wedding to be remembered! The important pieces are the people and the moments and Vision Events creates the backdrop, the invitation and warmth, with a touch of personalization.
