A MODERN ALL-WHITE & BLACK TIE LE CHATEAU WEDDING IN SOUTH SALEM, NY | MELISA & ERIK
Le Chateau was the perfect place for these two high school sweethearts, Melisa and Erik to get married. Between the New York skyline view and the stunning ballroom, this venue checked off all their boxes! Melisa looked radiant in a gorgeous gown from A Little Something White and her beau looked sharp adorned in a black bow-tie. For an added touch of color, Melisa's maid's wore emerald green dresses which were to die for! I don't know about you, but an all-white, black tie wedding is a YES for me! Seriously, there is something so classic and romantic about it. Melisa came to me with a vision and it was dreamyyyyy. An elegant affair with white candles, white flowers, and white floral fillers everywhere!
Before we dive into the floral details, let's discuss the dream team! Vendors are the heartbeat behind every wedding, and this day included some of the very best. Beet & Blossom Photo Co. photographed, Tori Hastings coordinated, and Loreta Daka flowered the rest! I've worked with Tori Hastings for many years and I have to say, she has this thing (the wedding industry) down pat. If you are a couple with your heart set after the Le Chateau venue, then Tori is your girl! Not to mention, Cassie and Alex Torres from Beet & Blossom Photo Co. live up to the hype! Over the years, I heard nothing but great things but this was the first time I ever worked with them. When they slide into my DM's to inform me they were Melisa and Erik's photographer, I almost fainted. I thought I was seeing things. Not only are they (Cassie & Alex) extremely down to Earth but they know a thing or two about photography! Pssttt!!! Scroll through the gallery and you'll see what I mean!
Now, let's talk flowers! Baby's breath was at the forefront of Melisa's mind while designing her wedding day arrangements. She opted for aisle petals, floral Chiavari chair backings, and a two-piece asymmetrical arch. What I loved most about this arch was that it had duel purposes. It was used once during the ceremony and again during the reception. When cocktail hour arrived, the arch was transported to create the illusion of a third quarter moon. The arch hung over the sweetest sweetheart table just like a cloud. Melisa incorporated orchids and lush roses into her arrangements and two single red rose buds were given during the ceremony in exchange of a traditional corsage to both the mother-of-the-bride and the mother-of-the-groom. Melisa and Erik included modern candles and clear décor accents all around the room. To tie this wedding all together we can't forget about the 'black tie' especially when you opt for flowers in all-white! Erik sported a pocket square boutonniere (which is a personal favorite right now) and it gave his lapel quite the flair. Last but not least, I must congratulate the bride & groom! It was an honor to be apart of your special day. IF only we could go back in time and relive your wedding day!
specialty flowers and fillers that were utilized in these wedding arrangements were baby's breath, roses, and orchids
