{Sneak Peek} St. Regis Wedding with a Pop of Color

Last week I received pictures from the photographer from our Princess St. Regis bride, who was given this nickname because of her sweet personality and delicate mannerisms.  Meeting her for the first time just a month shy of her wedding date, designer Chris Macksey with Barbara Roos and…well, me of course, set out to create a wedding that was as elegant as the bride.  While the ceremony and reception (stay tuned for that post) stayed in a neutral off white, ivory, and champagne color story, her cocktail hour and cake floral provided an unexpected pop of her favorite color to guests.

Baseball Theme with a Modern Twist

This is what happens when Bold American Events transforms the Ritz Carlton Buckhead into a Mitzvah baseball field.  The team included designers Chris Macksey, Barbara Roos, with Danielle Y. Boler, and Event Coordinator Lauren Waller.  Although, I must say none of this could have been pulled off without our fabulous floral and production teams.  Go Team Bold!

Guests picked up client provided escort cards before entering  the ballroom transformed by modern design, cutting edge lighting, and of course… baseball!

This is what they saw! HOME RUN!

Centerpieces featured baseballs made from white button mums, red woven midollino, clear glass vessels, and red baseballs on top of green baseball turf. Lighted tables provided a stunning glow in the room that featured chain link fencing, bleachers, and a dance floor set in a diamond.

{Behind the Scenes} Bold Team in Dallas for Final Four!

For some, the Final Four is all about a winning brackets, for me it’s about cheering on my favorite college basketball team (Go Wildcats!), for the Bold team, however,…it means taking our décor talents all the way to Dallas! It’s been a busy week for the company and I know you are wondering what we have been up to.

Check out some of our team’s pictures!

{Corporate Dinner} Rustic Industrial Meets Modern Chic

There is something about this picture that gets me every time I see it. While is was produced for a corporate event for Hyatt, I will say that this set up could work perfectly for a dinner party as well.  It is the perfect mix of modern and rustic with the use of our exclusive BAE farm tables, chic ghost chairs, and an eclectic grouping of lanterns, chrome spheres, clear and colored glass vessels, and soft floral in the ivory, yellow, and orange tones.  This table, set against the industrial brick wall with simple up lighting, shows that you don’t have to stick to one design aesthetic to create a polished look.

{Real Wedding} An Outdoor Wedding Forced Indoors (Part 1)

It was Friday, the day before Melissa and Ben’s wedding in April of 2013. For weeks now, our team had been tracking the unpredictable Atlanta weather for this ceremony taking place OUTSIDE on the 7th Floor Terrace of the St. Regis Atlanta. Not wanting to risk bad weather, we had to call RAIN PLAN one day before the wedding. That’s when our design team and our operations team kicked into high gear to bring the bride’s dream of a French countryside wedding into an Atlanta ballroom.  Our goal was not only to make the bride and groom happy, but to produce an event where guests wouldn’t even know the difference between Plan A(outside)  and Rain Plan (inside the ballroom).

To create a sense of arrival at the ceremony site, guests were transported to the French countryside using a rustic yet elegant cedar wood archway. The entrance arch, constructed from cedar posts with a wooden top and accented with grapevine, blush hydrangea, and garden roses, created the look of a beautiful garden in France. It was flanked by a series of weathered crème toned French doors accompanied by a series of topiaries in garden urns, under-planting of creeping vines, grapevine and rose blossoms. The under planting meandered up the posts of the archway and trail its way across the top of the header giving a feeling of longevity on the site. The natural textures, live plants, and the grand architectural features will create a stunning entrance to the ceremony.  A series of ten winged elm trees, with romantic twinkle lights, defined the aisle and brought the natural feel of the outdoors to the ballroom.

Melissa met her groom under a breathtaking ceremony gazebo fashioned from an iron and cedar arch structure adorned with warm angle vine and grapevine floating up the weathered posts. Floral garlands in ivory tones were woven throughout the vines to create a dramatic backdrop for the exchanging of the vows. The arch of the gazebo was enhanced with grapevine with oak leaf, ivory hydrangea, Lisianthus, and roses in ivory and blush tones, giving the impression this gazebo belongs in a French garden. A sparkling crystal chandelier also hung from the center of the gazebo for a touch of glamour.mb-wed-1102

{Bridal Extravganza} Orange You Glad- Chevron Edition

16Bold American Events designer, Kristine Finke and her fabulously stylish assistant Caroline Hallowell, set out to create a table for the Bridal Extravaganza in conjunction with the Atlanta venue Foxhall. The Bridal Extravaganza was held at AmericasMart in Atlanta, GA back in August. Kristine’s design featured an estate table accented with a landscape collection of gold bottles, pedestals bowls, ivory containers holding loose organic arrangements of antique hydrangea, roses, peonies, artichokes, succulents, peaches, orchids, spray roses, hanging amaranthus, seeded eucalyptus, and calla lilies in the green, ivory, peach and orange tones. The layered centerpiece created a lovely contrast on top of a coral satin draped table accented with a graphic black and white chevron runner for a fun and unexpected detail. Yes, I could tell you more, but in this case, I believe the pictures speak for themselves.
