Kathleen and Shon’s Southern Plantation
Some venues are so beautiful you know all you need to do is highlight its best features. Kathleen wanted a classic white wedding and reception, to be held in the all glass conservatory of an old Lousianna southern Plantation home. After scouting the venue we could tell the venue was gorgeous with one small problem; there were unattractive doors directly behind the ceremony. The bride wanted to keep the ceremony light and airy and we needed the backdrop to be able to move very quickly for the reception, so we opted for a soft white arch rather than a solid backdrop but what to do about the door? We decided to add tall, soft, cloud like white sheers topped with sprays of large spiral paper roses. There were several doors into the conservatory so we added a mix of large white structured flowers around the “proper door” to draw everyone’s eyes to the bride’s grand entrance. During the ceremony the sheers where dropped to hide the unattractive doors and aisle runners of large white spiral roses tied the theme together and framed the bride and groom. For the reception the sheers were tied back with oversized paper spider mums to let in the sunshine and the beautiful views.
