A White Orchid Wedding at the Four Seasons: Courtney and Patrick
Courtney and Patrick’s glamorous white orchid wedding last July at The Four Seasons Seattle was a stunner! This couple envisioned a classically elegant black-tie affair in clean white and the palest blush – and our team was happy to help.
Luxurious Wedding Ceremony under the Lucite Arch
Courtney and Patrick exchanged vows beneath a stunning clear lucite arch dripping with white phalaenopsis orchids and topped with roses. Against the floor to ceiling windows overlooking Elliot Bay, the lucite arch seemed to disappear, giving the illusion that the floral was floating in mid-air. Down the aisle, tall floral arrangements of hydrangea, roses, stock, and even more orchids floated above the guests, propped up on tall crystal vases and lucite pedestals. To top it all off, the clean white canvas aisle runner was decorated on either side with dozens of glass hurricanes and romantic white roses petals.
A Fabulous Reception in All White
While the guests sipped cocktails and nibbled hors d’oeuvres, our team worked with the fantastic Four Seasons staff to completely transform the ballroom from ceremony to reception. I am always in awe when I see such dedicated, hardworking professionals come together and flip a space so quickly . To the guests it appears effortless, but we know how much effort actually goes on behind the scenes!
For their reception, Courtney and Patrick and their guests dined at a mix of round and long tables, laid with textured white linens, crisp white chargers, and lots and lots of candles. The tall white arrangements previously used down the aisle now graced the round dining tables. The long tables were decorated with tall silver and crystal candelabras and low floral arrangements. As the sun set, hundreds of candles placed along the grand staircase glowed. The stunning lucite ceremony arch became a beautiful backdrop for the tall white cake, decorated with a cascade of roses and orchids. What an amazing wedding!
