Spring Wedding

Spring Wedding

spring colours

Venue: The monastery church on the island Frauenchiemsee was built in the 11th century and is one of the oldest and most beautiful churches in Chiemgau. Through the centuries it hosted the order of the Benedictines up to the present day. What an idyllic place for a wedding.

Transportation and reception: The trip to the church and to the reception venue is done for the couple and their guests by ship. The place for the reception is the garden of the Yachthotel Chiemsee, which is wonderful for a spring wedding in May. Since the evenings are still cool in spring, dinner will be served in the lake-pavilion, which gives a garden feeling through the big glass front. For the evening party there will be a small parquet dance floor designed in the pavilion.

Wedding attire: The spring colours can show in the bride’s attire as green and pink shoes and in the groom’s attire as a spring boutonniere. If the bride does not prefer a white dress, a green or pink dress fits the spring theme perfectly.
There are many possibilities for the bridal’s bouquet fitting the spring theme, fresh flowers or papers flowers; both are gorgeous in green and pink.

Food, beverage and wedding cake: Asparagus is spring’s most popular vegetable and is best straight from the field to the table: asparagus soup, fresh asparagus with ham, potatoes and butter or hollandaise sauce are just some examples. Rhubarb is another spring’s favourite and is good for desserts like rhubarb dessert with vanilla sauce. A buffet with asparagus, rhubarb and many more delicacies is set up for the wedding party.
For the reception toast is rosè champagne served and pink lemonade.
The wedding cake shows the spring colours green and pink and there are also many green cupcakes and cake-pops with little pink flowers to fit the theme.

Decor: Flowers, flowers, flowers in green and pink, and lampignons.

Music and entertainment: During coffee-time plays some easy spring-theme classical music like Pastorale by Ludwig van Beethoven, the four seasons by Antonio Vivaldi and Robert Schumann’s spring symphony.
In the evening, after dinner, is danceable music offered by a DJ or a band.

40’s Cuba Wedding

40’s Cuba Wedding

The venue

For this theme, we have chosen the ceremony will take place in the oldest church in La Habana, Iglesia del Espiruto Santo located at the La Habana Vieja. La Habana Vieja is the old district at the capital of Cuba. We will see and feel the old culture of the real Cuba, forgetting the new resorts for the tourism.

This church is one of the coziest churches on the island, this will make to feel closer the couple and the guest.

And for the celebration we chose the back garden of the National Hotel of Cuba. This garden is oriented to the Caribbean Sea and to the old town of La Habana, remindeding us the old times of our theme.

Floral decoration

The floral decoration must be colorful and with some characteristics which remind to the guest the 40’s in Cuba.

Taking this into account, we chose the white gardenias for wedding bouquet. These flowers are originally from China, but they were taken around the world like the love flowers, but in Cuba thanks to the song of Fernando Albuerne “Dos gardenias para tí” and after sang for Antonio Machín, gave to these flowers the meanings of love for the society of this period.

Music and entertainment

One of the most important for the celebrations is the music, and any music is better to represent Cuba, love, and wedding than Boleros.

The boleros are originally from Cuba, during the first half of the last century were the most famous music in Cuba and all the countries with relationship between their populations.

Transportation

The Cuban citizens are very rooted to the old cars, this make easier to find “the” car. We decided that the best car for the transporting for the groom and the bride is Moskovitch 400.

This car was a famous during the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s. Thanks for the relationship between URSS and Cuba after the Revolution in 1959 this car is easy to find it for rent it.

Autumn Wedding

Autumn Wedding

Fall is a great time of year to have a wedding. The temperature is great, venues and photographers will be easier to book and the season offers a natural beauty that can only be created by our one and only Mother Nature.

 The venue

There are a lot of amazing place to do a beautiful wedding with the autumn theme.

One of the ideal venues is in a castle during the period of mid-September to late October. This castle is located in Blantyre in Lenox, Massachusetts.

This country property, comprised of a main house, a carriage house, and four cottages, feels like something straight out of the pages of a Jane Austen novel—all 22 guest bedrooms are uniquely decorated with cosy details like overstuffed chairs, fresh flowers, fireplaces, and four-post beds. It’s also a great place to do a hot-air balloon ride over the mountains. Hold a wedding on the property’s lawn, where the ivy along the side of the Main House turns a vivid scarlet during the fall.

  Wedding attire for the bride and groom

When choosing a wedding dress for the fall season, it is always essential to choose colours or styles that best incorporate the season. A dress that flows naturally or provides a great accent of golden tones; or a simple sash is the best way to go. Also colours such as purple, light pink, champagne and ivory are great compliments for a bride on her special day, which creates a feeling of warmth that is often associated with autumn.

Concerning the groom, he will wear a black suit with a white shirt and tie or off-white. In addition he will have an orange boutonniere.

Flower girls can carry furry hand muffs with coordinating ribbons that match the bride’s bouquet.

–          Soy Candles

Soy candles in shades of burnt orange, yellow, or brown. It’s possible to double as place cards, or pack it into pretty boxes that match the colour palette.

–          Autumnal-Shaped Chocolates

Chocolate is always a favourite favour so consider chocolates in the shapes of maple leaves and acorns. It’s nice to display them in individual boxes at each place setting or on trays near the dessert table.

–          Mini Maple Syrup Bottles

Few things represent the fall season better than maple syrup. An idea is to give mini maple syrup bottles to the guests as a sweet thank-you.

–          Apple Cider Mix

Packets of apple cider mix are perfect for welcome baskets and reception favors alike.

–          Hunter’s Cocktail

–          Fresh Candied Pecans

That’s why we have a lot of opportunies for the floral decoration. For example, the Wedding centrepiece can be constituted by cymbidium orchids, nigella, scabiosa, artichokes, rosemary, croc fern, myrtle, bush ivy, and Japanese plum by Blossom and Branch.

Another possibility for the wedding centrepiece is constituted by heirloom pumpkins, poppy pods, scabiosa pods, lisianthuses, succulents, dusty miller, broomcorn, reindeer moss, and amaranthus by Love ‘n Fresh Flowers.

 Music and entertainment

About the music, it will have some famous song related to the autumn theme like :

–          September – Earth Wind & Fire-

–          Try to Remember – from The Fantastiks

–          Autumn Leaves – Frank Sinatra

Morever, a violonist will play some romantics songs!

Then, to encourage guests to dance, we will assign each table a love song, when the violonist plays that song that table should get up to dance. They will aslo try to caricaturist to do caricatures of their guests.

Transportation

For the transportation we have chosen  a 1955 Bentley S1 Wedding Limousine. It’s an original and romantic way of transport and it’s related with the epoque of the castle where takes place the wedding.

Middleage-inspired Wedding

Middleage-inspired Wedding

middleage colours

Venue: Burg Colmberg is an all-in-one solution. The castle offers a chapel, the reception venue as well as accommodation for the couple and their guests.  Everything can be easily reached on foot and is even in the same building. Therefore no further transportation will be necessary.

Wedding attire: The bride wears a beautiful medieval dress; the groom can choose between a classic suit and an also more medieval attire.

Food, beverage and wedding cake: Franconian delicacies and venison from the hunt are the specialities of Burg Colmberg and these are good basics for a medieval buffet. But the kitchen leaves no wish unfulfilled, vegetarian and fish is also possible to offer, without destroying the medieval theme.
A real medieval drink is of course met, a honey wine, but this is not everyone’s taste, so the more usual alternatives have to be offered as well, like wine, beer and non-alcoholics.
The wedding cake takes up the medieval theme as well as the chosen colours.

Decor: The castle itself is the medieval decoration; with suits of armor, old furniture and thick walls it does not need any extra decoration.

Music and entertainment: Medieval music and performances by fire-eaters, dancers and a jester provide the right ambiance.
