Pampas Grass Winter Wedding: Carly & Oliver
FORMAL EVENING PAMPAS GRASS WEDDING CEREMONY
Carly and Oliver’s formal New Years Eve wedding took place in the Garden Room at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. And what a gorgeous downtown Seattle venue they chose for their special day! For the ceremony we placed lucite pillars at different heights and added the centerpieces that would later be used for reception table centerpieces. We used both elevated and low compote arrangement styles to create an interesting and lush floral backdrop for the ceremony. The large vase arrangements were designed with hydrangea, roses, lots of greens, and of course, on-trend pampas grass for natural texture and interest.
New Year’s Eve Wedding Reception in White and Mauve
Large floral centerpieces filled with white hydrangea, roses, and greenery with pops of mauve took center stage for the reception – placed on round tables with neutral linens. We added lots of natural pampas grass for a slightly relaxed feel. Pampas grass weddings can often be ‘boho’ in nature. However we tried not to go too far in that direction for this more semi formal event. Keeping it timeless and elegant was our goal. Most importantly, to add a special New Years feel, a large holiday light chandelier hung over the dinner reception tables. As a result a cozy festive glow was achieved. By far the most eye catching element in the space. Perfect for a New Year’s Eve wedding!!
