A Velvety Red Winter Wedding

We love a wedding full of textures and unique characteristics! Lindsay and Matt did not shy away from bringing their personal touches into this velvety red winter wedding. And what better venue to have a wedding like this than The Ruins? We used so many different textured florals and unique designs while designing this wedding, and we loved every bit of it! Bringing together roses, anemone, eucalyptus, and amaranthus in all different shades from blush to red, the bridal bouquet turned out gorgeous. All of the bridesmaids worn velvet red dresses that we thought beautifully tied in with the florals and textures of the rest of the wedding.

A Ceremony At The Mantel

Nothing says a winter wedding like a fireplace. We designed a lush and growing arrangement for the fireplace mantel. The lush wild greenery in the arrangement complemented the striking florals and draping amaranths. We designed the floral arrangement on one side of the mantel, while offsetting it with candles and hurricanes on the opposite side. With petals and candles lining the aisle, the cascading fireplace was the focus of the room.

A Renaissance Reception

The ballroom in The Ruins is an European inspired masterpiece. With hand painted murals, which tie in hints of life on the PNW, it creates a mesmerizing ambiance. Dimly lit and darkly painted, it makes for a perfect place to hold a royal velvety red winter wedding reception. The gold chairs and linens from CORT decorated with gold candelabras and red taper candles create a vibrant and rich color palette for the night. The celebrations carried on as the couple danced the night away surrounded by their loved ones. We are glad to have been able to be a part of this unique wedding!
