Beaming brides Tasha and Amber share a post-nuptial moment on the lush grounds of the Villa Terrace Museum. Seated at a sweetheart table, they’re framed by a many-hued display of foxtail lilies, Moab roses, allium and more by Remington’s Flowers & Co. and flanked by pillar candles atop an ornate assortment of towering golden holders.
The charcuterie spread by Swiss the Girl includes prosciutto, garlic-stuffed olives, an array of fruits married with triple crème brie, hot honey and chocolate truffles, all garnished with mint and lemon thyme.
Tasha’s metallic gold eyeshadow and dramatic lashes by Ms Lauryn Marie complement the delicate detail of her “Oliviana” dress by Enzoani. Her bouquet features texture galore, with orange pincushion proteas, magenta astilbes and gloriosa lilies and a reprise of foxtail lilies and Moab roses.
Gold cutlery and olive glassware highlight the gold-rimmed plates from Hello Home Rentals. Menus by Copper Row Studio add the finishing touch to the dainty table setting.
A sweet and simple two-tier cake from Batter MKE gets the jewel-toned floral treatment with blue cornflowers, green tricalciums and calla lilies.
Amber, in a striking “Skylar” jumpsuit by Jenny Yoo, carries a cascading pink bouquet of anthuriums, gloriosas and hanging amaranthus.
A free-and-easy arrangement of gloriosas, French tulips and alliums are set in a formal gold vase that glows amid the gilded candle holders and dishware.
The happy couple shares a quick smooch in the stunning Villa Terrace Renaissance Garden. Tasha’s sweeping floral-adorned “Iris” veil by Meadow Sweet Bridal echoes the warm florals in the brides’ bouquets.
