Nautical Wedding at Hotel Eldorado in Kelowna, BC
Fredy and Laurie were married on the rooftop of the Eldorado hotel. The wedding was a heart-warming event enriched with Jewish culture, traditions and a nautical wedding theme. The ceremony decor incorporated white chiffon draping gathered above the arbor, acting as a chuppah. The chuppah, in Jewish tradition, acts as a cover over the couple and symbolizes the home the couple will build together. On each side of the arbor, I placed my white columns with rustic wooden lanterns garnished with flowers in turquoise blue glass with florals by the amazing Classic Creations Floral Design.
The entrance to the Sunroom held a vintage dresser that I bought specifically for the couple. I created the stationary out of nautical rope and printed it out onto a burlap backed frame. On the dresser I displayed stationary asking guests to leave little messages in a bottle as advice to the bride and groom. I used buoys, antique oars and nautical monkey knots to accentuate the space and large rustic lanterns were displayed on seagrass baskets that I provided. All of the decor, glassware, linens, props and stationary seen at this wedding was from the Vintage Origami inventory.
Inside, the nautical theme continued with the custom-made candy bar. Vintage doors and a driftwood wreath created a clean backdrop to accentuate the alcove and I used my glass apothecary jars to display the blue and white coloured candy on this dessert bar. This wedding was captured perfectly by Jessica Zais Photography and florals were of course by the talented Classic Creations Floral Designer.
It was such an honour to be part of this very special day. Thank you to my sweet and fun clients for entrusting me with the vision and decor. I love surprising a bride and groom. This was one of my most favourite Vintage Origami weddings to date thanks to the amazing florals by Classic Creations and incredible giftedness of the photographer Jessica.
