The Knot's Real Weddings
We couldn't have been more thrilled to learn that a wedding we did at The Winter Park Raquel Club will be published this May in The Knot's Fall/Winter 2006 as a "Real Wedding."
Laurie and Zac Cheek were such a delight to work with, allowing me to translate their love story and style into this fantastic day.
College sweethearts, their story is told from her deep love of purple to Zac's time spent in Japan. Those 2 elements were all I needed to create the palette and backdrop for this smashing wedding.
Some highlights for me were convincing Laurie to dye her shoes lavender just days before the wedding, surprising Zac with a Boston Whaler speedboat processional entrance, (very dramatic, especially since he learned about this moments before we had him get on the boat!) that adorable zen garden ring pillow especially designed for them and that gorgeous Romona Keveza gown that seemed to be made only for her.
Various shades of purple were utilized in the overall design from linens to flowers, yet the overall "Asian-Chic" style prevailed.
And...you gotta love the picture of my high-heeled luggage tag. Every wedding planner should have one!
