An Island Wedding

What happens when the daughter of a busy event decorator gets married? Well judging from these photos, magic happens.

Katie and Jake wanted an island theme for their July wedding at Belmont Mansion and that is exactly what they got. The bride's parents own Perkins Event Lighting and starting with a single photo that the bride's mom found in a magazine, the theme and decor were designed. The colors of orange and yellow were brilliant and incredibly gorgeous.
Hundreds of yards of wispy fabric were installed in the ceiling of the tent and the bride's mom hand-sewed panels of fabric that were placed between the outside tent poles.
The table linens from Gala Cloths worked beautifully with the color theme and flowers by Carol Westerlund accented everything wonderfully.
Favors were Malibu rum candy bars and everyone visited the "cookie bar" filled with wonderful Italian wedding cookies made by many of Jake's family members.
Oh, did we forget to mention the huge palm tree ice sculpture that was also an ice luge? It drew a crowd all night to the fabulous "tress bar" also set-up by Perkins.
These beautiful photos were taken by event photographer Arthur Remanjon.

We'll take credit for being the wedding planners on this spectacular wedding, but the real creative brains behind this incredibly beautiful wedding are the talented staff at Perkins Event Lighting.
