Whilst everyone was tuned to the Royal Wedding on the 29th Apryl and I were working away on a wedding downtown at the Taj. Set on their roofdeck with beautiful views of the city up across the Public Garden and around the other way, up all of Back Bay and overlooking the Charles.

I think many a couple has been a bit confounded by what to do for flowers and decor in this space with its bold black and white floor and metal-exposed ceiling. Our fantastic client decided to embrace the black and white, so we carried the theme throughout with gorgeous long arching stems of white phalenposis placed in tall vases and surrounded by mercury glass stemmed candleware. Although we were tired and ready to go by the end of our set-up, I wish we could have seen how glow-tastic everything looked in the evening.

We’re pretty huge fans of basically any kind of orchid. Period. But these long arching stems of huge pure white phalenopsis were just so gorgeous, so chic, such an elegant look…

I have a few other pretty pics of the ceremony but the colors are all lovely pinks, so I’ll do another post on that shortly.

Whooo-hooo, 2011 wedding season, here we come!
