We’re so excited to share photos from the Washington, D.C. stop of acclaimed floral and event designer Karen Tran's Master Floral Class. The three-day intensive workshop encompassed a purple and gold tablescape, ceremony arch set up, a luxe floral wall, and more. From the beautiful floral ceiling installation with crystal chandeliers to the stunning centerpieces with blooms in shades of purple, Karen Tran's designs will take your breath away.

The class was held at the Mandarin Oriental Washington D.C. and captured by Bonnie Sen Photography. JoAnna Dee Weddings planned the event working in collaboration with a team of top-notch creative professionals.

Want to see more awe-inspiring floral displays from Karen Tran? The designer is currently teaching a Master Floral Class in London at the Hotel Café Royal and will be sharing every “Insta-worthy” moment on the WedLuxe Instagram account (@wedluxe).

Last year’s WedLuxe Wedding Show featured a grand entry that created a major “wow moment” for guests and set the tone for the “Springtime in Paris” themed event. Fifth Element Group produced the 60ft-long floral ceiling installation that featured over 2,500 fresh roses highlighted with crystal chandeliers.

The entryway included a fun area where guests could show off their posing skills and recreate the cover of our W/S 2014 issue. If guests arrived feeling parched, “The WedLuxe Soda Bar” offered show attendees a chance to rejuvenate with a selection of custom soda flavours. The soda bar area also included a “Love, Atlantis” photo experience and a $10,000 honeymoon giveaway to The Cove Atlantis.

These stunning first impressions of the 2014 show only hinted at the inspiration found inside! Next week we’ll share more from last year’s event with images from our La Vie en Rose Café, the experiential space designed by the WedLuxe team and Frank Rea of Forget Me Not Florals.

Tickets for the 2015 WedLuxe Wedding Show, hosted by Arcadian and presented by Oliver & Bonacini Events, Kleinfeld Hudson’s Bay, and Hudson’s Bay Gift Registry, can be purchased at a special early-bird price: wedluxe.com/2015showtickets/
