REAL STORIES: A Modern Red Wedding at The Rittenhouse

In keeping with the modern, clean design aesthetic of our stylish bride and groom, we created a streamlined red wedding celebration for them at The Rittenhouse Hotel.

The day began as most weddings do, with careful preparations, joyful chatter and plenty of laughter. The wedding ceremony took place just around the corner from the hotel at historic Saint Patrick’s Catholic Church where our dramatic red rose spheres dressed up the altar. After the ceremony, guests were invited to The Rittenhouse for cocktails in the Cassatt Lounge followed by a festive dinner dance in the Grand Ballroom. For the sleek, minimalist design, we replaced the round hotel tables with rectangular tables dressed with rich taupe linens.  We designed a variety of beautiful, contemporary table centerpieces that were placed symmetrically in the room for balance. All of the table designs were composed of fabulous red flowers, using primarily one flower in each vessel. Blooms such as roses, tulips, ginger, miniature calla lilies, orchids and dahlias were placed in square zinc or rectangular glass vessels.  Layered with floating candles on every table and dramatic event lighting throughout the ballroom, it was truly a night to remember.  {Gorgeous photos by Cliff Mautner}
