Winter Magic at the Venetian: Lauren and Brian's Big Day

It was such a pleasure working with this wonderful couple!

Lauren came to Melissa with a few months to spare, needing assistance in bringing her design elements and special touches together for her white and silver (with bling, of course!) winter wedding December 4th. They hit the ground running (without even meeting in person until weeks later!)...securing fabulous linens, chargers, a custom runner, beautiful silver chameleon chairs, and revamped the couple's design concept with a new floral designer (the amazing Lisa and staff at A Touch of Elegance!). Lauren was amazingly laid-back and loved all the options we set before her...a total breath of fresh air!

The day was seamless...without a snag in any detail of the whole day...a rarity in weddings (most planners and vendors will tell you this!), especially with a bridal party of 24! Lauren was a vision in her couture Kenneth Pool gown..bridemaids were gorgeous (all 12 of them!)...and Brian was uber dapper along with his groomsmen.

The Venetian Palazzo Ballroom was simply stunning ...people were almost afraid to walk in the room (and we loooove that!). Three gorgeous centerpiece designs from A Touch of Elegance set the sophisticated and opulent atomosphere our couple was looking for!

Thanks so much to the fabulous team of vendors that came together to make this day perfect:
