black and white wedding
Christina + Paul Alto
Christina and Paul’s love story was as classic as they come; dinner dates, love notes, surprise flowers and all that old school chivalry that needs to make a comeback (yes please!)
So naturally the direction of the design was about a classic look, with clean lines, art deco touches and a tonne of romance. Melbourne Town Hall was the perfect backdrop for the ceremony with its stunning city views, marble floors and ornate stone columns. The stonework was the hero so the floral backdrop was wild and unruly, as if it had always grown there. Guests took in the scenery, champagne in hand, eagerly awaiting Christina’s arrival. When she did arrive, tissues were required – stat. The glowing lovebirds beamed with happiness throughout the service, it was such an honour to watch.
Once the nuptials were done it was time to up the ante and shift into party mode. Alto was the venue of choice, oozing rooftop vibes as guests sipped on pre dinner cocktails. An abundance of candle light flickered behind the sheer grey drape that divided the dining space from the pre dinner drinks area. Once Christina and Paul were welcomed into the venue, the drapes were drawn and guests were invited to take a seat. The look and feel for the table design was polished yet warm and inviting. Black taper candles ran the length of the table, weaving through the gorgeous floral arrangements made of blush, cream, beige roses with pops of black and metallic.
A very big thank you to Christina and Paul for trusting us with their big day. We felt honoured to share this journey with you and your gorgeous families and can’t wait for the arrival of Baby Rod later in the year.
