Wedding at Jewel Ballroom


It has been a while since our last post and we are having a successful wedding season so far.  Here are some photos from the Jewel Ballroom. Location is great and a nice view looking at downtown.  We incorporated some natural elements using birch, twigs and rocks for their arrangements as the bride and groom as they love nature.  The highlight was the birch chuppah that was specially made by the groom.  We had such a fun time decorating the chuppah.  Enjoy!

Behind the scenes at the Bling 2011 wedding show


Finally we have some time to take a breather after the busy wedding season and I wanted to share with you some behind the scenes setup and install of our booth at the Bling show.   I was up on the ladder starting to arrange the all the hydrangeas and green dendrobium with a floral knife at 5 am in the morning.  You should have seen my sleepy eyes! :) Took me longer than I anticipated and I thought I was going to falling a sleep on the ladder. :)

At last,¬†we were able to spend a bit of time in the Rosewood Hotel Georgia as we booked a room for us and our staff that were working with us at the late night. We also had weddings the night before that and required 1 am take down from nearby so I knew we won’t be able to go home that night.¬†¬†The pictures will show you how¬†beautiful the room at Georgia hotel was and the bathroom was breath taking! It would be great in the near future to stay there again!¬† I think it is also¬†a great room for bride to get ready on her wedding day since it has huge bathroom with two his and her vanities!¬† Enjoy the photos!
