When we stepped inside Solidago Gardens for the first time, we knew this space was magical. We were so inspired by the fall colors of the trees and natural lighting that seeps into the space. About the exact opposite of a traditional hotel ballroom. Playing off the autumn colors of the surroundings, we added pops of hot pink and navy blue into the floral design, including unexpected elements like gold shimmery spray painted tillandsia air plants for the place card holders.

    This is so beautiful! Can you tell me where you found those hexagon candle holders? I’ve been searching the Internet, but I haven’t found anything similar.
