Under a canopy of lofty branches that created filtered light, two lovers caught glimpses of each other’s smiles. That look. Those thoughts.
Guests are guided by the botanically inspired invitation suite with richly inked tones, decadent textures and hand watercolored details. Upon arrival they approach the collection of natural wonders in the vintage typographers box to find their place for the evenings festivities. They then begin to join in the festivities with ferns beneath their feet and moss adding to the softness all around.
The young couple, with their favorite prose handwritten on a tapestry suspended from the trees and crowned with gorgeous flowers in cool shades of red with touches of hot oranges and frothy limes, they exchanges subtle looks while toasting to their new future.
With the celebration placed on velvety linens evoking the midnight sky with sparks of gold and hints of stars on the dinnerware, and florals in great abundance warmed by tones of wood and candles that would guide them into the night.
The elegant display of a three tiered hand painted cake with small sugary mushrooms dancing on its edges, surrounded by hand rolled truffles and the earths last bits of sunlight as the day turns into night and the night ends at Midnight in the Forest.
