The red rose has been the symbol for love for decades. Their enchanting color captivates the heart and brings an air of romance. It’s no wonder that bride and groom, Lisa & Benny, choose the red rose as their wedding’s focal point.
Be prepared to be spellbound by all the beautiful photos taken by Pickerill Creative. Also be sure to read through the bride’s comments below for more details of their breathtaking wedding.
From the Bride: We wanted the look of our wedding to be chic and formal…so we chose red roses with both vintage and modern elements. These flowers symbolize the deep bond and rich love that Benny and I share, and they’re also special because Benny gave me red roses when we got engaged.
From the Bride: Sky Events and Production did a beautiful job executing our vision with gorgeously imperfect bouquets and a custom rose petal scroll design for the aisle. We also tied in the red color with red velvet wedding cake, which our baker, St Regis, designed to resemble my Kenneth Pool gown.
From the Bride: The other colors involved (silver, white, and black) provided a sense of glamour, elegance, and modernity. They also served as compliments to the striking red florals. I chose black for the bridesmaids’ dresses because it’s formal and flatters every figure. Amsale was the perfect designer since I wanted each dress to have a different neckline, as to reflect each bridesmaid’s unique style.
From the Bride: The vintage vines design, which was incorporated in our save-the-dates, invitations, place card frames/favors, table number frames, and programs, was our way of visually connecting the past to the present, the traditional with the modern. For example, while we had a rather traditional Christian ceremony, we chose contemporary music for the processional and recessional. The vines also served as a reminder for us to depend on God in our marriage, as it says in John 15, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
