Elizabeth & Craig

Hi there, readers! It’s a new year and we are so excited for all the beautiful work we have ahead of us in 2013. This post is devoted to Elizabeth and Craig, married on New Year’s Eve of 2011. What better time to start a new adventure than on the cusp of a new year? This event was our most involved ever. It challenged us to consider sculpture, construction, and interiors in a way we rarely get an opportunity to do. Elizabeth and Craig gave us an opportunity to completely transform the Lioncrest on Biltmore Estate into a gorgeous modern masterpiece of a party.

The couple picked bright green and purple to decorate their space. The bouquets were made with orchids, calla lilies, mini green hydrangea, and textural accents of pearls and curly sticks.

Guests were able to admire this piece of art from every angle as they climbed the spiral staircase to the ceremony, held on the second floor.111231_johnson_378Untitled-1We covered every inch of available space with floral and soft candlelight, even the chandeliers.111231_johnson_244 Untitled-2We really loved the look of chic whitewashed vintage elements with live floral and mercury glass. The floating shelves were made special for this event as well.111231_johnson_309111231_johnson_239We had fun including special touches throughout the space, from a lovely mantle with family pictures to a candy bar.
