cranes, parasols, bamboo, and the cutest logo :: tania+lenin's details

Congratulations, Tania + Lenin on your recent marriage {June 26, 2010} -- B&W is glad to have been a part of your special day!

DETAILS! DETAILS! (This a teaser post while we wait for more stunning photos from AnikaLondon.) Tania and Lenin approached B&W to execute a 6-month design + 1-month coordination project. Initially, we worked off the couple's color scheme, layout of the Prado ballroom, and invitation design (ordered via Etsy), and then were given the challenge to help introduce elements that would create a cohesive, personalized vision. We were in the process of producing concepts when T+L shared one more key ingredient -- a bamboo steamer give-a-way (with fortune cookies dipped in orange and red chocolate -- yum!). Red, tangerine, old world venue, bamboo, and fortune cookies? It was only fitting to introduce a little Asian flavor into this classy affair. The Asian elements were to be subtle, since we didn't want to distract from the gorgeous old world ballroom AND the beautiful flowers provided by FloralWorks. Just as expected, the implementation was successful -- from the origami cranes delicately hung on each centerpiece, to the printed parasols and Japanese lanterns spread across stage, and the wedding logo reminiscent of China dolls that were found throughout the reception. It took us about three months to finish folding all 130 cranes; this is a project that needs a lot of lead time, fyi. Tania+Lenin kept with the vision and found so many perfect elements to tie all the details together -- truly a creative couple that pays attention to detail just as much as B&W does. And we received so many "oohs" about their custom gobo projection, which was actually inspired by the cake topper!

Just peep these detail and gorgeous couple shots provided by AnikaLondon. Ariel and Josh, from AnikaLondon Photography, are SOOO fun and easy to work with. Talk about a chill and personable duo (and married, too!). And they got me teaser images in less than a week! Muchas gracias!

Ana from FloralWorks provided all the fancy crushed linen, flowers, and LED and par lights, along with the gobo projection on the dance floor. Just check out the amazing flowers that dressed each table; these centerpieces were so huge, guests were afraid to move them! Talk about WOW factor! And Flour Power did a great job executing the design we provided for T+L's cake. Special thanks to The Prado for providing an amazing backdrop to the event and feeding the guests with your yummy Pork of Prime Rib, and to DJ Pacman and Dj Rells (Sharpshooters) for providing the tracks to create such a positive ambiance!
