Wedding Trends Look Book 2019: Kate Spade
Inspired by the iconic designer, Kate Spade, who brought so much joy to women through her bold patterns and vivid colors, we created a wedding design as a tribute to this amazing designer. We celebrate the life of Kate Spade whose immense talent had an immeasurable impact on American fashion.
Our ceremony is set as a modern sanctuary highlighted with sleek white acrylic chairs that featured alternating rows with a signature Kate Spade black and white chevron pattern. Tall white gloss columns flanked the aisle to create a dynamic linear effect. Atop each column sat an oversized gloss finial and clusters of coral roses in white ceramic vases. Large arrangements of pavé-styled amaryllis in white planters were placed between the columns. The aisle made a statement with a bold graphic quote in metallic gold cut vinyl applied to the grey and white marble patterned runner.
Hedges lined the ceremony and enveloped the seating. We created an altar from a weathered silver leaf Cyprus table upon which we placed more white gloss finials and clusters of rose centerpieces in the Pantone® Color of the Year – Living Coral. We backed the alter with a modern floral-patterned wall featuring layered gold roses.
Beyond the ceremony, we designed a stunning head table building upon a gloss white table with bulbus spindle legs. We added a pop of color to contrast with the white table by using colorful coral roses in a myriad of white ceramic vases and green hedge-style balls in gold mirrored vases. More gloss white finials tied the reception design to the ceremony.
Above the head table we hung an organic cluster of silver striped orb lighting fixtures. The table was set with alternating patterns of Chameleon® chairs, featuring Blade Kaleidoscope and black and white Moderne chair backs. Each place setting sparkled with the gold rimmed china in Tiffany Blue and finished with streamlined gold flatware. Even the menu was trimmed in metallic gold. The tablescape also featured simple black napkins that were playfully tied with black and white polka dot ribbons.
For glassware we selected a trio of mix-and-match stemware, combining a simple red wine glass with a decadent gold-accented water glass and Champagne flute. The tabletop was finished with gold and silver fingerling votive holders and a gilded pear was placed at each setting as a nod to our theme ‘Pretty and Witty make the Perfect Pair’.
The guest tables featured black gloss tables with Blade Kaleidoscope Chameleon® chairs. We chose a pink china for the guests and a wide black and white stripe napkin. We juxtaposed the coral floral arrangements with black gloss finials and chose grey and white marble-handled flatware.
The dessert table featured a collection of cakes with perky patterns. We created a show-stopping display with a gold marble bar, hedge wall backdrop and a gold mirror cut-out of ‘Sweets’.
Separating areas of your reception creates a completely customized atmosphere. The entire lounge was surrounded with gold square mylar chains that curved away from the tables to create separation between the dinner space and the cocktail lounge and bar. The lounge featured a gold-tufted bar and gold display shelves that held green ball topiaries and graphic bottles of 9.5 Cold Wine Brut. Modern white high-top tables flanked the bar and soft seating featured an Atomic sofa in charcoal and curved-backed chairs in smoke grey with gold framing.
All the elements blended together to create a wedding that was both whimsical and modern. Each detail layered with the next would create an experience that evoked Kate Spade’s signature style.
