Two very different weddings, one in Scala, Italy in the hills above the Amalfi Coast and the other in center city Philadelphia, sharing similar decor of fairy lights and glass containers. Though this idea is not new; we first saw these fairy lights on Restoration Hardware’s website some time ago, we haven’t seen them used as wedding decor very often. The effect is nothing short of magical. These amazing photographs are sure to inspire future brides and grooms. With Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner, how beautiful would this type of decor be for a winter wedding?
The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, was the setting for the first wedding above and directly below. The ceremony took place in the Planetarium under the stars with twinkling lights on the ground, lining the aisle. Simply spectacular! The cloches on the ground are filled with moss, succulents, potted plants and a string of fairy lights and set on a wood slice. They also doubled as centerpieces for the reception and shared table space with white votives to add extra shine. To create some height, tall cylinder vases were used as well, with a moss base, cherry branches and fairy lights. Kudos to A Garden Party for the amazing tablescapes.
The second wedding was set on Lake Como at Villa Giuseppina. These tablescapes included pillar candles enclosed in tall glass cylinder vases, small mercury candle holders with votives, tall trees with hanging votives and bell jars with fairy lights. The succulents, hydrangea and foliage were arranged outside of the cloches as table runners. There were enough candles to light up the night and the result is breathtaking. Our hats off to The Lake Como Wedding Planners for their inspiring work.
