The first wedding of the summer

On Sunday we did our first wedding of the summer. It was the most elaborate wedding we have produced and thanks to the wonderful staff at the Capitol Hilton which is located 2 blocks from the White House, we had a great experience.

The photos show the chuppah we built. The bride wanted a round one and we made it with my husband's help. The underside had pleated satin fabric covering it and the sides and legs were draped with a similar satin. We added a garland of plumosa fern, varigated pittosporum and ruskus and decorated that with peach and cream roses, white hydrangea and dendrobium orchids.

The wedding pieces themselves were white and light green. More pictures to come on this event.
