Mindy and Chris married in a chic and sophisticated rooftop wedding at The Renaissance Hotel overlooking downtown Columbus photographed by C Studios. The event design was created by Bliss Wedding and Event Design in a stylish palette of black and white punctuated with pops of color in fuchsia. The colorful palette and soft blooms in the decor played contrast to the sleek urban setting of the downtown Columbus skyline. Mindy wore a strapless silk satin gown by Kenneth Pool with low-dropped waist ballgown, pleated satin bust and crystal embellishments at the empire waist and hip. She carried a bouquet of fragrant white roses, while her bridesmaids carried similar monochromatic bouquets in fuchsia that created a striking contrast against their chic black cocktail dresses. Silver chiavari chairs were set for the rooftop ceremony where fuchsia pomanders hung from white ribbon on the end of the chairs decorating the aisle. Under a brilliant white canopy trimmed in black and adorned with ivory and fuchsia pomanders hanging from the roof, Mindy and Chris exchanged vows on the spectacular rooftop setting.

Bliss Weddings and Event Design created an upscale cocktail party for the reception with a mixture of highboy tables and low small rounds situated around the rooftop draped in a variety of linens from fuchsia crinkle taffeta to white with black embroidered detailing all set with black chiavari chairs. Arrangements varied from low square glass vases filled with fuchsia peonies and calla lilies on the cocktail tables to tall full arrangements of hydrangea, peonies, stargazer lilies and roses that adorned the food tables created by florist Flowers on Orchard Lane. Jan Kish created an exquisite five confection with black damask print design that created a stunning contrast to the all white base and for a pop of color to complete the event palette a topper was made from fuchsia roses. The stylish rooftop reception began with a spectacular saber champagne toast that started the celebration. As the sun went down the rooftop was illuminated by the city skyline and guests danced into the late hours to the Controversy band only stopping for a late night snack courtesy of White Castle.

Feature: Glam Birthday Party – Nightclub VIP Style

by

We’re so thrilled to be featured on Hostess With The Mostess today for a very VIP birthday party from this past summer. HWTM is one of our all time favorite blogs, so today is a very big day for us here in the Bliss Wedding & Event Design offices! Thanks so much Jenn for featuring us today!

Take a peek!

If your 21st birthday didn’t look like this, don’t feel bad… mine didn’t either!
=) But that doesn’t mean we can’t ooh and aah over the absolutely stunning florals, glam crystal chandeliers, and cool “restaurant-turned-nightclub” atmosphere from Arielle’s party… and dream about our own milestone birthday (or wedding, or anniversary, or _______ ) being quite so fabulous!

Bliss Weddings & Events (Columbus, OH) transformed the Sushi Rock restaurant location into a “VIP club experience” for this event. They even constructed a club-style “cabana” around the sushi bar! And I seriously can’t stop staring at the gorgeous floral arrangementstall & colorful, lush beauties blooming throughout the party… They’re all fantastic, but these have my attention in particular:

The Experience:

“Birthday girl Ari wanted to completely transform Sushi Rock restaurant into a VIP club experience for her guests. We opted to do a private dinner for the family prior to the “club” opening.

The doors opened at 10pm and the party went on until 2am! In true club fashion, guests were able to reserve private VIP booths and bottle service prior the party.”

The Decor
Our color palette was made up of red, tiffany blue, black and white and we had to be mindful in how the colors would look in the already red & black room. The best way to keep the colors looking sophisticated was to the pair reds and blacks together and the tiffany blues & whites together.

Our goal for the decor was to read chic and urban. Sushi Rock allowed us to remove EVERY piece of furniture and décor they owned so we could transform it! However, we wanted to preserve some of the restaurant’s uniqueness, so we accented the large sushi bar in the middle of the room in a way that both fit Ari’s style and maintained Sushi Rock’s vibe.

Entertainment:
Entertainment was important to Arielle and was needed to ensure guests had a great time. An amazing DJ was necessary to make the party hoppin’ and DJ Bandcamp fit the bill perfectly! We also brought in TWO live performances to keep the energy up. First to hit the stage was Yung LAfollowed by the talented Wiz Khalifa. The guests went crazy for it, even the NFL and NBA players in the attendance that night!”
