Old World Romance on the Marina
The great thing about summer is the many outdoor events that this warm weather allows us to have. It is always fun to plan receptions and other events on our Pool Patio. This last wedding has allowed us the privilege of creating one of our most elaborate tents yet!
Throughout the past year, Michelle and Doug have been planning a classic style wedding that would consist of both old world romantic elements and a love for the ocean. Using golden colors like sand and champagne, highlighted with tones of soft peach, pink and warm honey, they created a delicate and romantic color scheme. Their use of pearlized sea shells, candles, and many floral arrangements perfectly accented the theme.
For the tent, we called in our most trusted Pico Party Rents, who came in and covered the patio with black Astroturf, put up the tent structure, hung can lighting, draped the interior with delicate lining, and hung two handmade chandeliers. It took almost 8 hours to complete the job!
In the end, the result was breathtaking! Throughout the weekend many club members and visitors stopped by to gawk at the tent. Michelle and Doug were very happy that all the preparation and planning had paid off.
Many other details helped to make this a special event - From the Chuppah, to the special "Ginger Limeade" Cocktail.... We couldn't be more honored that this couple chose CYC for their big day. Congratulations Michelle and Doug!
