Calla Lilies


Columbia Marriott wedding

21 January;  Author: admin
Sarah Strauss & Brian Levin were married July 17, 2010 with a beautiful wedding at the Columbia Marriott in the Capital Ballroom. 
Sarah carried a white mini calla bouquet and her Bridesmaids carried full size callas. 
Not only did Sarah actually used callas for her and her Bridesmaids but she used them throughout her entire wedding.  The Chuppa was covered with white callas, white lilies, white hydrangeas, white roses, white stock, white snapdragon, with a touch of lavender stock and she also used tied full size callas with lily grass. 
Their reception was at the Museum of Art and was catered by Jack Brantley. They used a mixture of tall & low tables with callas & curly willow in the tall tables and white lilies, white hydrangeas and roses in the low arrangements.  They had a 14 foot tall calla arrangement upstairs. 
 Brenda with Parkland Cakes did her cake,  Heidi Graves was her photographer and Bill Grant was their videographer.



Mozeltoff !! And Congratulations to Sarah Strauss & Brian Levin on thier recent marriage !! The elegant evening began at the beautiful Columbia Marriot for the ceremony. Brandt Hulteen and rest of his wonderful staff did a great job of making the Hotel the perfect setting for the traditional Jewish nuptials. The Chuppah was the focal point and it was stunning !! We used white calla lilies, lilies, roses, stock, hydrangea and snapdragons, curly willow, and for a clean splash of color and fragrance …lavender stock. White pipe and drape and uplights (by Displays Unlimited)provided just the right accent… It was a show stopper ! Sarah carried a stunning bouquet of all white mini callas and her bridesmaids carried full-sized callas cut short…a beautifully elegant choice ! Bill Grant of of Grant Digital Media captured every moment.

After the wedding, it was on to a lavish reception across the street at the always lovely Columbia Museum of Art. Chris Carson & her team of professionals had the setting immaculate. Jack Brantley from Aberdeen Catering provided his usual excellent fare and classic antique diner ware including black pin-tuck linens (by Palmetto Party Rentals) and black Chiavari chairs. Since Sarah loves Calla Lilies, Sarah got Calla Lilies !! EVERYWHERE ! From  dramatically tall table centerpieces to the detail of stair handrails…even a TWELVE FOOT TALL Calla Lilly accent piece….next to the new blown glass Chandelier ….talk about Dramatic !! Even the Cake (Parkland Cakes, so you know it was great !) Had mini callas on it …Beautiful.

What a wonderful event for some wonderful people ! Many Congratulations !! And Thank You for allow us to be a part of such a special time !! The American Floral Family
