Fruit Decorations Take Center Stage at This Chic DAR Wedding

Never going to get over this fabulous one! On the cover of Washingtonian Weddings magazine now and you can read the article here! https://www.washingtonian.com/2019/09/24/fruit-decorations-dar-wedding/

washingtonian.com Jacqueline and Stephen chose to dress up their venue with fruit decorations and other citrus-inspired details to create a modern-with-a-twist setting.

Martha Stewart Weddings

The couple asked florist Canteiro Weddings to create tall centerpieces—that wouldn't hinder guests' conversations—using a mix of red and pink roses and tulips. Smaller carnation-centric arrangements, placed in gold geometric terrariums, were placed flush on the tabletops.
