Kelly & Charles!

When we first met this couple in the winter of last year we were excited to take their dreams of an elegant yet modern garden wedding and turn it into a day they would never forget. Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden was the perfect venue for this special day. The couple exchanged vows on the gorgeous Bailey Palm Glade, one of many hidden spaces tucked away in the garden.  If you’ve never been, it is truly a great location for exploring!  After a beautiful ceremony overlooking the water, the guests were taken for a tram ride through the garden up to the party space!

We transformed the tent on the great lawn into an modern space with a few country charm touches.  Using a mixture of both square and round tables, we dressed the room in hues of clean whites, crisp greens and cool blues.  Texture was added with linens, overlays and napkin treatments, and ambient lighting welcomed the guests.

Dancing the night away to Pangaea the crowd enjoyed an exquisite menu carefully planned to reflect couple’s varied tastes, including everything from carved tenderloin to sushi and wontons. To add a relaxed touch, we also incorporated a “fun food” comfort station (Pictured Below) with items selected by the groom’s daughter for kids and adults alike to enjoy throughout the night.

We wish Kelly & Charles the best as they begin their new lives together as husband & wife!
