The Citizen Hotel Sacramento, Ca Wedding “Bendel Botanical”

Can I tell you how overwhelming it can be when I have not blogged for a while?  During this wedding season we have produced some of the most beautiful weddings.  So where do I start?  I just want to show them ALL to you, right now.  As you can tell, I am pretty excited about what I have hidden up my sleeve.  But I am going to start with Kristen and Jon’s amazing wedding at The Citizen Hotel in downtown Sacramento, Ca.

Kate of Kate Miller Events was the planner and event designer on this “perfect in every way” wedding at The Citizen Hotel in Sacramento, Ca.  When Kristen and Kate came in to meet with me they had started putting together the look of the event.  Kate had coined the wedding “Bendel Botanical”.

Kristen and Jon’s wedding was to be a blend of the fashionable signature brown and white stripe Henri Bendel uses in their branding, early spring herbaceous florals and urbane sophistication.

Travis Hoehne was on hand to capture all the pretty.

The paper suite was designed by KME Paperie.

Kristen’s bouquet was effortlessly elegant.  It featured French anemone, Sahara roses, freesia, hydrangea, sweet pea, and hanging amarathus.

Loved the boutonnieres!  They were made with a Sola wood flower accented with chocolate brown velvet leaves, hypericum, andromeda bells and was wrapped with brown and white striped ribbon.

The views from the Governor’s Suite at The Citizen Hotel are totally amazing.

The centerpieces were so much fun to design.  I love designing with textural elements!  Mossy branches, hydrangea, and magnolia leaves make me happy.

Half the table’s centerpieces were apothecary jars holding fresh moss and florals.

Can I just tell you how much i love working with Sweet Cakes by Rebecca? Because I do, a lot!  The dessert display at Kristen and Jon’s wedding was outta this world.

The warm atmosphere was in thanks to lighting from Exquisite Entertainment.  The pattern on the roof of the tent was taken from the graphic on the wedding invitation.

Congratulations to Kristen and Jon!  I hope your every day is just as lovely as your wedding day.
