Lauren & Kris's Platinum Wedding!

I am absolutely thrilled to be blogging about one of our favorite couples, Lauren Book and Kris Lim! As many of you know, their fabulous wedding held at the Fairmont Turnberry Resort in Aventura, FL was filmed for the television show Platinum Weddings which airs on the WE Network in March 2009.

The wedding began in a large clear top tent where guests were seated ampitheatre style to create an intimate setting for the 600 guests. There wasnt a bad seat in the house. The chuppah was beautifully decorated in thousands of roses, hydrangeas, and orchids in shades of whites, pales pinks, and greens. The aisle was lined with beautiful boxes of lush white hydrangeas accented with hanging green amaranthys. Of course the aisle was adorned with a blanket of soft rose petals.

As each member of the bridal party made their way down the aisle a ivory sheer curtain would open to reveal them. The ceremony was an interfaith ceremony with a methodist minister and a jewish rabbi. At the end of the ceremony the couple sealed their vows not only with a kiss, but with their famous "high two" before exiting to a string trio playing the theme song to I Love Lucy.

The cocktail hour boasted full ivory draping and amber uplighting with several lounge areas including 50" plasma tv's playing a slideshow of the couples engagement photos. Perhaps the most impressive items in the cocktail hour though, were the amazing wish tree at the end of the corridor and the ice bar and luge with the couples logo in full color (I will get a photos of this soon).

The reception was a vision in led lighting in and soft lavender with pattern lights changing throughout the night. Ivory fabric was draped to the center of the room adorning the focal point of three large floral spheres. The band was framed by a fiber optic curtain which looked like a starry sky behind them. Two large screens framed in ivory fabric played the couples love story before their grand sparkler entrance, and later had a live feed so everyone could see the toasts, cake cutting, and of course the 3 Cirque du Soleil performances set to music of the Beatles. Later in the night a slideshow was played giving guests a sneak peak at the ceremony photos taken earlier in the day. The cake was a stunning 5 tier confection that sat on a table made of ice complimentary to the ice bar and luge that had been displayed in the cocktail hour.

After a night of fabulous dining and dancing, Lauren and Kris were wisked away in a floral decorated golf cart (Kris is a pro golfer who was just sponsered by Nike) to the most amazing fireworks show I have ever seen.
