Heartfelt Real Wedding Julia Parnell and Darren Lurie

February 6, 2018

Let the Flowers Do the Talking

The bride and her mother wanted the day to be classic, elegant, and not over the top.

We wanted to showcase the gorgeous gilded ballroom of the Cosmos Club rather than trying to compete with it. So, we worked with the ladies at Sweet Root Village, who designed the perfect ‘elegant-yet-loose and springy’ arrangements with varied shades of pink, ivory and green. The couple wanted to incorporate cherry blossoms, but rather than using them in the floral arrangements, we had the cake decorated with delicate sugar cherry blossoms, and the donut favors were iced with tiny cherry blossom branches.

A Piece of Cake…

The gorgeous (and delicious) cake by Catherine George was definitely a showpiece of the wedding. The white on white, three tier cake featured fondant symbols of the places around the world that are special to their families – Big Ben from London, “foo dogs” from Hong Kong, and of course the Washington Monument and the Capitol to symbolize DC. The finishing touch were the delicate sugar cherry blossoms crowning the cake.
