Wedding Design: The Evolution of an Event Space

We planned a really great Boston gay wedding wedding last Saturday night.  Two grooms, Mark and Jody, hired us to transform a Unitarian church hall and create a really stylish, colorful and fun space.  Check out my amateur Droid phone photos below as I share the story of how the style of the space came together...

The room when we first arrived - some tables were the church's and the rental company left all the chairs stacked.  We used all rectangular tables, some 6' and some 8'. The grooms sat at a small round sweetheart table.

Another view - the room itself was really cool, a blank canvas for our design

We laid out all the tables according to the floor plan we'd pre-designed.  We took down the LOVE banner and another banner and cleared off the corner by the stage, next to the piano (it was full of 'stuff').  

We draped the tables with a violet lamour linen that captures light really well.  We placed the leather slipper chairs according to my floor plan.

The floral arrangements (two different styles on alternating tables) start to get set by Spruce Floral (they rock!) The little signs in the foreground are the table name signs, not yet distributed.

The team at work.  Place settings go down...

Teal napkins in place; drapes closed on the stage.

Candles in matching colors in place.  Menus for each table distributed.

Close up of the flocked purple mitsumata branches with green orchids (that's not paint!)

Style 2 of centerpieces - view of the full, completed table

With all of the window shades drawn, and the addition of uplights around the room

It's pretty cool, right?  Even with my amateur photos...  I can't wait to see the real ones.  It's fantastic to see the evolution of an event space, and in a space like this, almost anything is possible.  Believe it or not, I have a photo from the very next day when this room was used for a church rummage sale!

How are you planning to style your wedding?
