Emma & David – Zephyr Palace

Orchid bouquet

Emma and David love to have fun and their wedding day was infused with their joyous spirit at every turn, starting with Emma’s cheerful bouquet of orchids and hydrangeas.

letter press wedding invitations

As the wedding was at the beach, in the beautiful Zephyr Palace, we went with an ocean theme but in a very subtle way. The letterpressed invitations were in the signature wedding colours of coral and aquamarine blue, with a coral motif.

 

Coral was the focal colour, as featured in the chairs and on the letterpressed tags for the fans.

 

The mahogany chuppah was adorned by a lace topper, coral roses, white dendrobium orchids and hydrangeas, encircled by the white and coral chairs.

Children played an important role in the wedding and were honoured with backpacks filled with toys to keep them entertained throughout the evening.

 

Rather than on a pillow, the rings were nestled on a handmade ceramic ring bowl from Paloma’s Nest. As you can see, the ring bearer took his job very seriously!

And the sign bearer was super excited to announce the bride!

Ivory wax candles on a bed of hydrangeas, brought an elegant touch to the terrace stairs.

 

Could these two get any cuter together?!

Their ketubah, the traditional wedding contract, was truly a work of art.

Zephyr Palace is such an luxurious space to work in and the wedding’s soft colour scheme.

Custom napkins were made using fabric with a modern take on a coral motif, echoing the more classic take on coral featured on the menus. Coral rose petals under the glass chargers added a pop of colour against the aquamarine sheer overlays.

Table arrangements were created with hydrangeas, coral roses and a variety of stunning orchids, all grown in Costa Rica.

Calligraphied seating cards were placed in mahogany holders with a collection of large floral arrangements and smaller glass sea anemone vases with coral Mokara orchids.

A self-serve bar was set up for guests to create their own unique libations, with letterpressed coasters scattered about the tables.

Lighting really does create an entirely different atmosphere!

As the wedding fell on the last night of Chanukah, a menorah was lit just before the guests moved from the cocktail hour to the reception.

A man of many surprises, David had taught himself to play the ukulele, unbeknownst to Emma. He jammed with the band to play “Home” to the backing of all the wedding guests singing the chorus. Needless to say, it was the highlight of this incredibly fun day!
