Lisa and Steve hosted a glamorous, black-tie wedding at the Bellvue Manor where Lisa works as an event coordinator. The bride naturally planned the event, working closely with Nancy Marra, the owner of the venue, and floral designer Cliff Hassanally of IXIA Flowers by Cliff. “I have been working in the wedding industry for years and helping couples plan their day, so it was almost surreal that I was now planning my own wedding. I absolutely loved every aspect,” shares Lisa.
Enzo Mercuri Designs draped the ballroom in dramatic black fabric for the occasion and decorated the space with gilded mirrors and giant, crystal chandeliers. Cliff Hassanally created elaborate floral designs that paired beautifully with the rich decor. The awe-inspiring centrepieces included thousands of pink roses, orchids, dahlias, hydrangea, lilies and dusty miller (to name just a few of the blooms!) “The flowers were jaw-dropping,” remembers Lisa. Our friends at 5ive15ifteen Photo Company were thankfully on hand to capture every minute of the luxe celebration.
