Megan and Neema came to us with a challenge: they needed help planning their wedding, and it was three months away. So, needless to say, we hit the ground running. Villa Montalvo in Saratoga was the scene for their July 4th wedding so the Art Deco theme was perfect.
We leveraged geometric patterns from the invitations to create the stationery system, used subtle blush accents in florals and linens, and incorporated gold accents throughout (for a little bling, duh!)
Megan blew us all away in an elegant beaded gown while the two exchanged their “I Dos” in the Villa’s Oval Garden with floral garlands lining the aisle, and petals tossed for their exit as “Mr & Mrs.” The guests then made their way down into the courtyard where they found their champagne escort cards, grabbed a Mezcal Margarita (Neema’s fave) and mingled by the fountain or under an umbrella for some shade. At last, we escorted guests onto the terrace with the Villa on one side and the lawns on the other -- people were stunned, and we were too. It was simply beautiful. The place settings were pristine: blush shimmer napkins, beautiful gold chargers, custom menus, sealed with a small bouquet of spray roses. And the centerpieces, Studio Mondine knows how to make beautiful arrangements - dahlias, roses, hydrangea - we had it all. There were meaningful touches sprinkled in throughout the evening including: a beautifully choreographed first dance, the groomsmen singing to Megan during dinner, traditional Persian dances, and these were just the icing on the cake of a perfect evening.
What resulted, was a gorgeous celebration, a classy reception, a beautiful couple and a really fun party (with plenty of Kentucky bourbon flowing).
See for yourself.
