Wonderful purple at the lovely Le Rivage Hotel

I do work at other wedding venues than Le Rivage, here in Sacramento, Ca.  I swear.  I just had three weddings right in a row at the lovely Le Rivage Hotel situated on the Sacramento River.

Purple is SO hot this year!  I love it.  I am in awe of the callas in Erin’s bridal bouquet.  Picasso calla is verigated with a cream edge and a dark purple throat.  Night Cat is a true royal purple color.  So rare in the floral world.  Lots of other pretties in this bouquet too- peonies, sweet peas, cymbidium orchids and lisianthus.  *sigh*

The bridesmaids’ bouquet were a brighter version of what our bride, Erin carried.  The flower in the foreground that looks like a purple rose is lisianthus.  Stunning, right?

One of the reasons I love Le Rivage so much is the river front ceremony site.  Sacramento’s nickname is “The River City”.  It is so fitting to be married right on the Sacramento River.

We draped our aisle stands and ceremony vases in champagne fabric, I love the way it looks.  So romantic.  The aisle vases and ceremony arrangements were moved inside after the ceremony to be used as additional decor in the reception room.

Our Groom, Chris is an Architect by trade.  So we opted for a very structured but interesting centerpiece.  This was the first look.

Pretty Night Cat callas.

I loved the way the gold wire added a little gleam to the centerpieces.
