One of the most important things for Michelle and Brandon was that their guests had an amazing time. We wanted to start the party off right away with a great cocktail hour. We brought in a three sided bar so that no guest would be left without a drink in hand! Lounge furniture was placed in the lawn and string lights were hung to continue the intimate feel.
The seating card wall was definitely one of our favorite details!! Petal Pusher did such a fabulous job creating the moss and floral wall and it was the perfect focal point during cocktail hour. We made sure to get plenty of use out of the wall by using the opposite side as the bar backdrop. Once all of the guests had their seating cards and the reception began, the wall was transformed into the backdrop of the slow motion video booth!
Like almost all of the rooms in the Arizona Biltmore, the Grand Ballroom has many unique architectural details that are very “Biltmore”. We wanted to enhance the look of the room without making it look too much like every other ballroom. We draped the ceiling and the walls but kept certain aspects of the architecture to keep just enough of the history.
Michelle loved the idea of mixing rectangle tables with rounds. Petal Pusher kept the floral arrangements low and placed a mix of smaller arrangements on each table.
The round custom dance floor is another favorite of ours. Platinum Pro did a truly amazing job capturing the watercolor design from Michelle and Brandon’s invitations and the shape was the perfect thing to bring the room together.
These table numbers were what we like to call #vcgenius. We were actually searching online for a card box when Victoria thought of the amazing idea to create agate table numbers. Finding the perfect sliced agate then became our new mission and we have to say, they turned out better than we even imagined! We love how unique each one was, and they brought a bit of a”harder” element to the loose flowers and soft colors.
We love these black and whites of the couple enjoying the dance floor, cake, and a fabulous champagne tower!
