Brenna and Ross, Vail Chapel and the Sonnenalp
Yesterday was a beautiful, beautiful day in Vail and we had the pleasure of working with Carolyn from Artisan Events on a gorgeous event. I have limited images from the day as we were busy setting up decor at the Sonnenalp Hotel but I imagine the photographer James Christianson will do the day justice.
Here are a few detail shots including Brenna's cascading bouquet of lisianthus, calla lilies, phaleonopsis orchids, cymbidium orchids, champagne roses and ranunculus. This was created to compliment her Oscar De La Renta Gown, shown on the model here.
The bridal party wore Vera Wang dresses in slate grey and carried clutch bouquets in rich purples, wines and greens including hydrangea, dahlias, mini calla lilies, ranunculus, orchids, lisianthus and seeded eucalyptus with lily grass loop accents.
Decorating the cocktail tables were simple bubble bowls with looped eggplant mini calla lilies and lining the walkway from the cocktail area to the reception were a dozen hooks with hanging copper buckets with submerged candles and hanging seeded eucalyptus detail.
The twenty reception tables alternating between tall, lush arrangements of hydrangea (including both light blue, rich blue, deep purple and lime green), israeli and italian ruscus, seeded eucalyptus, blue viburnum berries, white lysimachia, dahlias, vendella and champagne roses, lisianthus and hyperium. We hung glass votives from birch and curly willow branches extending from the arrangement tops.
The low centerpieces including a smaller version of this centerpiece complimented by a low cylinder vase with twisted, submerged lily grass loops, orchids and calla lilies. We surrounded these vases with pillar and floating candles in cylinder vases with submerged flower heads.
The bride's cake was a beautiful, simple pattern with white buttercream including mountain detailing complimented by simple green hydrangea buds.
Congratulations to Brenna and Ross! We hope you had a wonderful day.
