Part deux of Bryan and Carmen’s soiree at Clifford Pier was a sumptuous celebration of the senses in the Grand ballroom of The Ritz-Carlton and snapped by David of Axioo. Helmed by Directions Group Inc with towering florals by Fiore Dorato, the bride’s requested palette of classic cream, white and gold created a space reminiscent of the gilded halls of La Grande Galerie in Château de Versailles while she looked regal in gowns by none other than haute couturier, Elie Saab.
A word from Directions Group Inc…
“The couple met when one of Carmen’s oldest friends and maid of honour, Wanyi, introduced them. They started out as friends but love slowly blossomed between the two.
The bride wanted a very classic décor theme that would stand the test of time. The idea was to transform The Ritz-Carlton into a ballroom of a French palace. Creams, whites and touches of gold were the colours of choice, with dozens of tall arrangements adorned with overhanging Phalaenopsis orchids, strands of hanging crystals and glass baubles.
Some special features from their wedding included a mixologist bar from the couple’s favourite bar, Jekyll and Hyde, a cigar and Louis XIII bar, DJ duo Rave Replublic for the after-party and a floral feature in the middle of the foyer which acted as a photo wall.
Justin Ang and Vernon A were the emcees for the wedding. The couple chose them as they wanted an upbeat, non-stuffy atmosphere. They gave the emcees free reign to crack jokes as they wished."
Congratulations on your marriage once again, Bryan and Carmen! May it be every bit as beautiful as your wedding!
