The Wedding Event guests will embark on a theatrical wedding experience into four distinct designs and a musically choreographed performance inspired by the songs of each artist with elegant models in couture grown garnering high fashion editorial style. The environments will range from high baroque with opulent jeweled tones in rich textures of heavily draped velvets framed with sculpted walls hosting crown moldings backed with a crushed velvet inlay and topped with extravagant gold gilted mirrors to natural wood colonnades rising into tiered heights, draped in whimsical natural muslin framing rural chic lounges & crowned with iron and crystal chandeliers with farm wood tables topped with crafted lace creating an etched pattern with soft champagnes, creams and blushes to name a few. Each area hosts its own lounge, so guests can explore each specific detail from the moment the event begins for their wedding experience.”
