Think timeless foliage, an eye-catching symphony of twinkles and incredibly merry guests and you pretty much have an idea of Karim and Zein effortlessly elegant wedding.
The entrance of Island Residence was festooned with garlands of leaves and pops of bright-colored Verdi roses to give the couple’s guests a sneak peek of the garden inspiration that awaited inside. Roman vases of robust proportion overflowed with the classic blooms and luscious greenery, while clear columns with white candles at the foot of the stairs, across the pebbled path and the venue’s lawn, lit up the scene as the sun went down.
Soft clouds of greens, hydrangeas, and roses dressed up the wall to form a makeshift photo booth backdrop, a nod to the bride’s love for everything spruce.
A long decadent patina dessert bar featuring an array pie pops, floral-topped white-frosted cakes, chocolate covered marshmallows, macarons, pastel-colored chocolate eggs and cameo cookies was adorned with cascading flower swags in lieu of table runners, a concept in accord with the bed of sumptuous botanicals employed for the dinner tables.
The garden lounge was invested with all white sofas, stools and glass tables for the cocktail hour as the happy guests mingled and picked up the goodies Karim and Zein had in store, wedding white flip flops and fedora hats.
We loved the quiet quality of this poetic setting and the urban chic meets outdoor of our elegant couple’s reception. After loads of touching toasts and speeches, the sky was set on fire, and so did the dance floor! We, like Karim and Zein, had a blast!
