Samantha and Ian were wed in an extravagant woodland-inspired wedding. Without a doubt, the 10-ft tall chuppah under which they exchanged their vows was the focal point of the ceremony. Constructed of custom wood, wrapped in roses, orchids, hydrangea, and cherry blossoms, and flanked by two large trees that guests could not stop admiring. This incredible structure was carried into the reception space and served as a canopy for the couple’s sweetheart table with the original life-size trees repositioned to the sides of the space to anchor the room. The blush, nine-tier, wedding cake measured at 5-ft tall and was decorated with Swarovski crystals, gold foil detailing, and silk, faux butterflies, which were repurposed from an installation at Twist by Pierre Gagnaire the couple fell in love with when touring the Mandarin Oriental, Las Vegas. From beginning to end, the wedding was an exquisite, fashion-forward celebration.
