CHRISTINA & SEAN
HOTEL DEL CORONADO
PART 1 – PRE-CEREMONY & THE CEREMONY
A stunning sunset/twilight ceremony on the beachfront Windsor lawn at the historical and beautiful Hotel Del Coronado.
The hride-to-be (Christina) wanted her wedding to feel romantic, soft, elegant with warm ambiance with a lot of warm candle light. Being that her wedding was a pre-winter affair in November, Adorations included seasonal flowers that could give the same grandiose effect as the brides desire to have dinner plate dahlias, and opted for large china mums to take the place perfectly. David Austin garden roses dominated the design with natural foliage that lent a handpicked styling, with subtle hints of metallic gold. Queen Anne’s lace, maidenhair fern, and white veronica imbued movement, peaking amongst the garden roses. LaVonne (Adorations Botanical Artistry) was able to weave in smaller varieties of dahlias to keep the bride’s original vision at play, but let the china mums do their job to emphasize the scale.
With the ceremony setup in a circular (round) fashion, it was adorned with modern torch heat lamps for lighting and warmth (being that this sunset/twilight ceremony takes place in November). Adorations Botanical Artistry created a beautiful chuppah structure draped with crochet top, ribbons and stunning array of looser romantic garden style florals and greenery. We also added candle light with pillar candles on pedestals behind the chuppah structure and down the aisle for additional lighting and ambiance.
