A Wedding at The Intercontinental Montelucia

What a beautiful venue, a beautiful bride, and beautiful decor! Ever After Florals was proud to be a part of this super romantic affair. The bride chose a color palette of soft gold, ivory, and watermelon. Her Bridesmaids were in bright colored watermelon dresses and carried a mix of pale yellow cabbage roses, ivory & variegated pink garden roses, pale yellow stocks and ivory hydrangeas. Their stems were wrapped in buttercream gold satin ribbon. The brides bouquet was a bit softer, also wrapped in buttercream gold and polished off with an heirloom broach that was her grandmothers.
The ceremony was very simple and elegant. The view was amazing so we did not want to distract the guests from that. However, we did compliment the small lawn with a few ivory, pale yellow, and watermelon colored rose petals. It was very dramatic and super gorgeous!
We brought the romantic look into the ceremony as well, using a variety of roses, hydrangeas, stocks and a few watermelon colored peonies to brighten up the room. Each centerpiece sat upon golden vine patterned table linens, and were surrounded by tall candle holders with ivory floating candles that illuminated the room. The bride also requested personalized vases for each of her bridesmaids, so that they could place their bouquets into them at the reception. This not only looked great, but it served as the centerpieces of the head table.
This look can be accomplished for any wedding. Ever After provided gorgeous decor, but the Intercontinental Montelucia was so beautiful that it was hard to compete.
