This was by far the most beautiful wedding
I have ever been to. And I had the
privilege of putting together their
The Venue: Tlaquepaque, Sedona AZ
Colors: Black & White w/ Red accents
The time of year: September
The Japanese Mitsumata Branches arrive straight.
They are very light weight and come bleached white.
They are extremely pliable after a good soak in water.
The image above shows the branches after they were
shaped. My front room looked like a circus for a month!
Getting them to the venue was a challenge I did not
first anticipate! But thanks to my ingenious husband,
who built this temporary frame the branches arrived
intact and undamaged.
The set up process was all a matter of timing. And it was tight. We had to
put all of them together and placed on the tables.
I placed submersible lights in the glass vase with the glass beads to
let the red accents shine. The tea lights were battery operated and
had the flicker feature to make it twinkle.
The tea lights were in fluted votive holders and hung with fine
wire so that it gives an illusion of floating candle in the dark.
What a beautiful and perfect night for
a perfect couple. May they celebrate each
and every year!
