“Sarah wanted an elegant wedding that didn’t feel stuffy,” La Fleur says. “Stylistically, we were on the same page because she enjoyed effortless romance: a wedding that is beautiful but feels comfortable.”

Sarah and Ryan married in the Cultural Center’s stunning Preston Bradley Hall. “It’s famous for it’s 38-foot Tiffany Dome, the largest in the world,” La Fleur says. To make the space feel more intimate and warm, she hung drapes and placed candles at various heights.

Grays and pinks anchored the decor. Peonies, roses, and hydrangeas balanced the strong gray table linens to make sure the April wedding looked sophisticated instead of too sweet.
