The Venue CU “Vino before Vows”

Oct 12, 2023 | Floral Design

Vino before Vows was the theme for the tasting and styled shoot we did for The Venue CU this past August.  As a preferred vendor for The Venue CU, we were asked to collaborate with them for the wine Italian aesthetic event.  After seeing the mood board, we excitedly said “Yes!”


“Vino before Vows”

To fit the “vino” theme, we decided to decorate with grapes.   We hung grapes from the tall centerpieces, from the head table arbor and also from our 13 foot diameter floral chandelier.  Adding to the “vino” theme, we filled the tall cylinders with wine bottle corks.  


Deco Fresh Roses

We have long admired the beautiful rose varieties from Deco Fresh.  We also recently became a blogger for Thursd.  so we reached out to Regine to see if she could influence Deco Fresh to partner with us for this styled shoot at The Venue CU.  We were delighted when she informed us that Deco Fresh would indeed supply some roses.  For our color palette we chose deep wine shades, violet, mauve and fuchsia pink.  Deco Fresh sent us the rose varieties Venturosa (a beautiful deep wine color), Violet Hill and Country Blues.


The Styled Shoot

The tasting is held for several couples who have already booked their date with The Venue CU. It gives them an opportunity to taste all the different dishes that the caterer offers.  Before the couples arrive for the tasting, The Venue CU brings in models to do a styled shoot which gives several vendors an opportunity to collaborate and receive gorgeous professional photos of their work.
