Last fall our Haaga Family Rotunda was the setting for Amanda and Tom’s beautiful wedding!
As the Rotunda does not have a designated “wedding ceremony” area, couples are welcome to choose any section of the room to set up the ceremony. Amanda and Tom chose to say their vows in between two of the exhibit cases at the end of an aisle marked by rose petals in shades of purple, blue and cream. Fabrics in similar hues cascaded from the mezzanine level to make a lovely backdrop.
As guests moved from the ceremony to cocktails and on into dinner, nothing could have prepared them for the sight of the Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Oschin Family Hall of African Mammals deck out in its finest!
Dinner tables of various shapes were enhanced with a massive array of flowers, manzanita trees and greenery provided by Romance, Etc (romance-etc.com).
Salads were pre-set by Tender Greens (www.tendergreensfood.com) prior to dinner being served so the guests would not have to wait to eat as the speeches were being delivered.
After dinner the dessert bar enticed guests with three wedding cakes from Vanilla Bake Shop ( www.vanillabakeshop.com) and snacks such as lemon and grasshopper bars and shortbread and jam treats!
Thanks to the fantastic lights brought in by A Rental Connection (arentalconnection.com), guests were able to dance the night away to the sounds of City Connection (cityconnectionent.com) under the twinkling bulbs.
