An Ode to Ballroom Weddings & Receptions

Oceanside, rustic barn, museum, or backyard elopement – there are several different styles and locations brides have to choose from when it comes to their venues. With that being said, not every lucky lady has the advantage of gorgeous weather 8 out of 12 months of the year to have an outdoor ceremony or reception. For those brides who fall into this category – we have the solution for you! Today’s blog is an ode to ballroom weddings and receptions that permits you can have an approachable feeling to floral designs and not fret about competing with the standardized ballroom decor.

Lighting should be your best friend when planning for your ballroom wedding. Laura and Matt did a magnificent job choosing a lighting that made the Promenade Ballroom of The Mayflower Renaissance Hotel feel extra intimate! The soft blue and lavender hues accentuated by tall, plum arrangements of roses, hydrangeas, carnations and draping crystals made their reception venue flawless. Thanks to Lisa Boggs Photography for sharing these images! Please click here for more of Laura and Matt’s wedding.


Last, but certainly not least, we are big proponents of using shades of white, blush, and pink for ballroom arrangements. From bouquets to the centerpieces and candelabras, flowers within these color palettes emit a feeling of tenderness and grace. Even better, they are a common complement to the rich colors often found in ballroom decor! For Kattrina and Matt’s Mayflower Renaissance Hotel wedding by Lisa Boggs Photography, created striking arrangements that didn’t compete with the ballroom, but worked with it!
