Hitched: Boris & Karen’s River East Art Center Wedding – Part 3

Here we are, capping off the final post for Boris and Karen’s wedding at the River East Art Center, photos by Fragola Productions. Be sure to check out part 1 and part 2! Luckily, I had the help of my amazing Sweetchic Team to hand the reigns to once the reception began… then I was able to enjoy myself and be a guest! ;)

Loved this escort card table, although I will admit it took fooorever to set up the adorable little tags! (And that’s why you hire a planner to do it for you!! ha!)

We went with a beautiful palette of pale grey with dark purple and bright green accents. Lots of purple hydrangea, lisianthus, purple vanda orchids, green dendrobium and cymbidium orchids, succulents, green trick and
curly willow accents

The best way to make use of bouquets? Lie them down flat and create a little “wreath” around the front of the Sweetheart table! The colors here look especially stunning!

I LOVE a combined Father/Daughter AND Mother/Son dance at the same time! It takes the pressure off, lasts only one song, and then the dance floor can be officially open!
