A Discussion of Details
Being part of an editorial photo shoot at the historic Biltmore Hotel in Miami – Coral Gables offered our Tailored Twig design team a breathtaking canvas to design décor for two incredibly different design stories.
This spectacular luxury hotel built in 1926 combines elements of classic Italian, Moorish and Spanish architectural elements and each of the design concepts worked with the unique spaces.
The first design utilized an open-air garden setting with tall plaster columns and walls in shades of green with tropical palms to create a reception space with a fresh bright look.
A series of long tables were draped with a sunny yellow linen, gold metal wire risers were filled with an abundance of white and creamy ivory roses, white snapdragons, thistle, pampas grass, green apple anthurium, Italian ruscus and enormous philodendron leaves. The reception décor was set against shades of vintage greens in this historic hotel and created a fresh and timeless feeling.
The second design concept incorporated the brilliant colors of a South Asian wedding that played against the resorts decorative details to create some stunning images.
Brightly colored draping framed the space and set the tone for one of a kind tablescapes. Long guest tables were draped in a waterfall of color with Indian inspired linen in a variety of patterns and textures.
The guest tables were layered with gold rimmed china and goblets, gold glass votive candle holders and collections of uniquely shaped gold vessels. These items added a reflective metallic elements and helped ground the collections of brightly colored flowers.
Hand tailored collections of flowers included brilliantly colored roses in velvet wine, blueberry, burning orange, orange and exotic high yellow created a dramatic attention-grabbing look.
Pincushion protea in orange and yellow, safari sunset leucadendron, thistle and fiddlehead fern shoots added interesting textural elements. Clear acrylic ghost chairs were the perfect pairing to allow the table design to be the focal point.
This show stopping hanging wedding cake adorned with roses and orchids was supported by an incredible organic structure of banyan root, curly willow with bursts of color, and upright red amaranthus.
Our Tailored Twig always enjoys working on out of the box creations showcasing color, texture and unique botanical specimens; and working with amazing wedding professionals.
