They stood under a beautiful, dark wood Chuppah covered in lace and feminine florals in pinks, purples, grays and whites. Framing the aisle we displayed floral arrangements in wood boxes with scattered rose petals in between at near the Chuppah.

Before and After Photos~ Rocky Oaks Estate

We recently had the privilege of planning and designing Cybel and Sebastian’s wedding at Rocky Oaks Estate. I will be sharing all of their wedding details with you in the next post, but wanted to first share some before and after photos of our Labor of Love.

Ceremony Space Before:

before ceremony 1Ceremony Space After:

They first laid down wood sub-flooring, then carpeted the entire space and added on a 50 foot aisle for the bride, groom and bridal party to walk down, they wanted something dramatic. To shade their guests we hung fabric panels over head.

Reception Space Before:

Reception Space After:

As you’ll notice, we had a company come in to cover their infinity pool, there were many steps involved in this process. Which was ultimately covered with wood planking, carpet and a dance floor placed on top. We finished off with installing a railing for safety. A mix of round and rectangular tables were placed around this space to complete the look and maximize the space, we had 180 guests to seat for their reception.
