Photographers, florists, and event planners–among many other fabulous industry leaders– sipped on signature cocktails, savored to-die-for cuisine, and socialized throughout the night at Reverie Gallery’s New England Soiree.
The Wadsworth Mansion held the event this past Tuesday, allowing wedding vendors from Maine to New Jersey and everywhere in between to be a part of this night of net-working.
We were lucky enough to be asked to design the arrangements for the west ballroom, which included eight cube arrangements, mantle décor, and a two foot tall floral piece for a circular couch.
We absolutely love decorating the mansion mantles, especially when we get to use hanging amaranthus; it adds texture, color and drama when draped over the ledge. We filled six cylinder vases with spray roses, tulips, and cala lilies, all white to coordinate with the events color scheme, while five strands of orchids dangled to the floor. Mercury votives and glass pedestals with floaters were lined on the mantle as well, completing the look with a romantic glow.
An arrangement was also needed for the center of a banquette. Terri used many of the same flowers as those on the mantle, but added hydrangea, stock,orchids, Amaranthus and branches which all blended together beautifully to create an eye-catching piece.
Many beloved vendors were in appearance for the soiree including photographer Jerome Braga, musician Renee Prescott from the Shaded Soul Band, and beautiful performers from Elan Artists, TEN31 Productions, and belly dancer Lidia Pleiada!
We loved seeing familiar faces, and meeting new members of the wonderful wedding world. A big thank you to Reverie Gallery for hosting this gorgeous event!
