Huy & Graham: A Glamorous Affair

Huy and Graham’s 1920s-inspired wedding reflected their classic style, charismatic personalities and impeccable taste. The couple’s intimate celebration was glamorous, yet fun. Huy wore a beautiful Jenny Packham dress and carried a jewel bouquet that she lovingly made. Ian wore a standout Tom Ford bow tie with a bluejay feather lapel pin from Hook & Furl.

Blue Lavender Events worked with the couple to design the Art Deco decor in black, ivory and gold set against the exposed brick walls of an historic warehouse space. They exchanged vows in front of a magical display of candles in glass spheres suspended in front the picture window. Other decor details included a sparkling crystal chandelier, lots of glowing candles, phalaenopsis orchids and dramatic tablescapes. We particularly love the gold sequins table runner that adorned the head table.

Guests were treated to a delicious raw bar during cocktails, as well as a gourmet coffee station after dinner. In lieu of a wedding cake, a classic French dessert was served—a Croquembouche wrapped in delicately spun sugar. A Brit & A Blonde was on hand to capture the stunning couple and all of the elegant details.
