I have wanted to post this particular work by Events by Showstoppers since they created it for a summer wedding at El Portal. Their floral design is exquisite and it fit perfectly at one of my favorite venues El Portal Inn. El Portal has long been a favorite of mine for that intimate mid-sized wedding. (30) Guests.
The design created by Ken Heflin and Jim Bullock for this wedding was truly a “showstopper”
As a grand entrance for the bride, Showstoppers create one of their fabulous rose petal carpets. For this carpet two thousand roses were used in colors of red, fuchsia and deep pink. The wisteria growing near the outdoor ceremony site was hung with pink snapdragons up side down to create the illusion of blooming wisteria. Also at the ceremony site were the beautiful rose spheres made with 150 roses per ball and wound with rattan vines. The bridal bouquet was made of blush cymbidium orchids, peonies and rose hips. I think my favorite was the layering of all the elements on the U shaped dinner tables. Square vases were filled with coral peonies, double pink tulips, wax flower, genestra, French tulips, phlox and chartreuse reindeer moss. Spaces between were filled with fresh mushrooms, votives, small birds nests filled with quail eggs and Manzanita branches. English ivy trailed down the sides of the tables.
