Liane + Barrett | Belo Mansion



Liane and Barrett decided on a glamorous affair for their May wedding.  Once they chose the classic palette of white and gold, they knew Belo Mansion was the only place to tie the knot.

Barrett and his groomsmen kept it timeless in black tuxedos and bow-ties that allowed Liane to shine in her strapless gown and soft curls.  Her bridesmaids wore long, pale blue dresses and carried all-white bouquets.

The reception hall dazzled with gold accents from the chiavari chairs to chargers and the flickering of candlelight.  An amazing floral runner of white roses and hydrangeas took everyone’s breath away.  After cutting it up on the dance floor, the bride and groom departed under a shower of rose petals.

A modern garden setting at Aristide Event Center

Can I just say how much I love this team! Inspired by all that is garden, I wanted to bring together a modern approach at a garden styled setting. I love the clean, crisp look of slate gray furniture paired with wild foliage and simple white/silver dishware.  We knocked it out of the park with the vibrant, rich colors and soft hand painted details in the cake and invitation suite.
