Alexa & Rob | The Shimmer of Rose Gold
Rose gold because of its pinkish color is known as the metal of romance. While white gold represents friendship and yellow gold means fidelity, rose gold represents love.
In addition, much like the beautiful blending of these two amazing families, copper added to gold actually makes it stronger and gives the gold its rose color.
The blending of these two families actually began at the rehearsal dinner.
Rob grew up all over the world and had one prized possession, and this prized possession moved with him and the family as they traversed the world: this fun, well-loved stuffed animal. In a very touching moment at the rehearsal dinner, Rob’s mother shared this gift with Alexa.
On her wedding day Alexa chose a stunning couture wedding gown by Galia Lahav. This gown inspired by Italian tile was a blending of antique rose lace and a shimmering ivory lace and paired perfectly with her rose gold wedding shoes with a crystal-banded heel.
Alexa carried a beautiful hand tied bridal bouquet of a very unique calla lily in a soft coppery color; in perfect contrast to her wedding party who wore soft shadowy grey gowns, carrying white bouquets with soft touches of Dusty Miller.
Rob chose a classic custom tailored, European inspired tuxedo with a satin shawl collar, accented with a simple calla lily from Alexa’s bridal bouquet.
Alexa and Rob exchanged their wedding vows, surrounded by family and friends, under a breathtaking cascade of cream and blush colored flowers and soft billowing fabric.
Their luxurious wedding reception in the Ritz Carlton’s ballroom continued to blend family and friends. Soft accent lighting reflected off flowing cream colored draping produced a shimmering glow throughout the room.
Guests dined under crystal chandeliers and an awe-inspiring floral chandelier was the focal point in the center of the room. Long guest tables, designed for interaction, were adorned with mirrored panels, soft gold toned glass vases overflowing with soft white hydrangea and blush roses, and floating candles.
Layering the tables with textured blush dupioni silk linen, gold-rimmed glass charger plates and round, custom designed menu cards completed this warm, romantic design.
