Over the last 3 to 6 months I have been working with the Rosen Plaza to enhance their wedding packages and create a fresh image for weddings at the Rosen Plaza. It is a wonderful hotel and the staff including those I work with in particular Robin and Juan are very dedicated to each client's needs and desires. The hotel has received Best of The Knot (as we have) year after year. Juan had approached me for assistance in creating centerpieces for the hotels wedding package. Not only are we now the exclusive wedding floral provider, but a friendship has ensued. Ironically through conversations, Juan and I have unknowingly crossed paths nearly 2o years ago. Below are some images of a recent wedding and several luncheons hosted by the Rosen Plaza
Kerline of Joie de Vie Weddings asked to help create a vision for Showers of Happiness for an ABC Luncheon. I worked with the in house rigging to hang parasols and to encase the guest in a cloud of fabric. The uplighting and cloud gobos brought the space alive. I also worked with Rashida of BBJ Linens to find just the right linen for the tables. We used a reversible cloth called Spring Kyoto which can be seen by clicking the link. Under the umbrellas placed atop the table was wheat grass waiting for just a hint of rain to keep it fresh and green. Thanks to Ed Medici for providing these wonderful images.
The best part about our industry is that we get to enjoy the fruits of our labor with others we work with daily. From right to left is Juan and Robbin, both of the Rosen Plaza, Jen from Rosen Shingle Creek, Tamuel from Remembering When, myself, Donna from the Wyndham I-Drive, Rev Glynn Ferguson of Sensational Ceremonies and the in house rigger.
The above images provided by Brewer Photography & Videography are what you can expect from the Rosen Plaza. A selection of fabric sytles, linens, centerpieces and uplighting. To further enhance your wedding vision let the team at Greenery Productions help inspire you.
Industry professionals (too many to name) were given a VIP luncheon to launch the new Rosen Plaza packages.
There are so many wonderful industry professionals like those shown above that I have the honor of working with for corporate and social events. Amongst those are Tracy Marini with Eventfully Yours and Brandee Gaar with Blush by Brandee Gaar.
And the dynamic team that makes it happen for the Rosen Plaza from left to right is Michael Cruz from BBJ Linen, Robin and Juan from the Rosen Plaza, Julie Brewer from Brewer Photography & Videography and myself.
An October 2008 wedding at the Rosen Plaza. Discarding the ever present notion that a bride should carry an all white bouquet, this bride carried my favorite flower, the Schwarzwalder Mini Calla Lily while the girls carried a white mini calla lily bouquet. I like mono bouquets verses an overly mixed bouquet.
The fabric upgrade & chuppah is an option provided by the Rosen Plaza . The upgrades as shown are the stage covering, white stairs, floral swags, aisle markers and aisle runner.
The ceiling treatment is also an option provided by the Rosen Plaza
This bride chose a combination of short and tall centerpieces. The short being hydrangea, roses and open cut mini calla lilies. The tall centerpieces standing over 3 feet included open cut calla lilies, curly willow branches, white dendrobium orchid sprays and natural greenery.
The cake was enhanced with a fresh floral topper of white mini calla lilies and white hydrangea. Thanks to Tracy Marini of Eventfully Yours for letting me help make this brides day extra special with floral and decor. And to Rootography for the awesome images reflected above.
