On New Year’s Eve I planned, decorated and executed a wonderful wedding. We had a white winter theme and it was truly magical. I would like to take all the credit but I had a very talented team working with me on this event. Carol Hiltebeitel of  www.cocodesigncompany.com  did an amazing job on the flowers and The Portland Country Club, our venue, did a fantastic job with the food and service.  The Big City band (www.bigcityweddingband.com ) was rocking, and finally, the guests were lovely.

If you are a fan of Celia Bedilia you have seen my bird vases before. I love these vases and we used them to surround our charity tree. The bride and groom asked that guests donate to the Center for Grieving Children, in lieu of gifts. We created a table of branches, wooden trees and flowers to welcome the guests and remind them to donate to this wonderful cause.

Carol did an incredible job with the flowers and plants. She planted mini cedar trees in my bark covered vases and created fabulous birch bark lined vessels for other mini trees. She is such a talent and I feel blessed to have her on my team.

I ordered these fantastic snowflake lanterns (www.lunabazaar.com)  which hung in the windows and the LED lights inside of them created such a lovely glow.

Mercury glass votives twinkled throughout the room…we had loads of candles and it was just beautiful. Carol combined Amaryllis, Dusty Miller, Roses and much more to make these fantastic arrangements.

We wrapped the columns in birch branches, and hung votive candles from the branches. Fearful of fire hanging from branches suspended above the dining guests, we opted for battery powered votives.

The chairs were rented from One Stop Party Shop.

We also got this set of three silver birch vases from Home Remedies, Portland Maine. These arrangements were the centerpiece in the ceremony space. It was also the backdrop for the wedding photos.
