Winter Wonderland – Inspired by Alexander McQueen, the Chanel 2010 fall runway show, and the couple’s love of Narnia and Game of Thrones, unsuspecting guests were treated to this Winter-in-August wedding featuring a palette of soft whites, grays, natural wood, and an aisle lined with birch trees and wooden antler chandeliers. Cocktail hour and dinner showcased metallic birch linens, snowy tablescapes of phalaenopsis orchids, and white succulents with crystallized tips mixed with birch, slate, quartz, cottonpods, silver antlers, and glass cloches. Stainless steel, pewter and silver vessels were used to bring a contemporary feel to the icy-inspired décor that adorned the reception space. Digital mapping of falling snow along with birch tree projections transported guests into an arctic retreat. Attendees were treated to an ice bar and vodka luge while an eight-piece band played in front of a birch forest backdrop on a fur upholstered stage. An interactive photobooth offered thematic props including bear paws, antlers, ice crowns, and ear muffs.
