Hot Summer Color at the New York Yacht Club!

Harbor Court is the summer digs of the New York Yacht Club and a fabulous venue it is! The grand Manor House is set atop a steep hill with the most amazing panoramic view of Newport Harbor and the Bridge.
This festive tented wedding was full of great detail and surprises at every turn!
Following the waterside ceremony we kicked things right into high gear with this decadent lounge area. Our color story of hot pink, orange and apple green begins here!

Bronze elephants with fez-capped monkeys and green cymbidium orchids were just one of the many cocktail table accents. The green wire-trimmed votives were a great match.

Plush custom seating with matching pillows made for the most popular seats in the house!

What's better than a pair of lovey-dovey love birds chirping in the lounge. Surprises like these are what makes events unforgettable!

Hanging votives and topiaries outside the entrance.

A peaked century tent is basically a huge white room. We always encourage clients not to be afraid of colorful linen. Imagine how drab this glama tent would be with all white tablecloths! Each round cloth takes an average of 8 yards of fabric. With 20 tables that's 160 yards of delicious color....
Check out the sexy two-toned color of the custom iridescent taffeta linens we made:

Love this shot. Our low glass compote bowls were chock full of pink and orange roses with green cymbidiums and sweet potato vine leaves for pop. Tent poles were softened with white gathered fabric for a finished look.
Unique container shapes and square glass votives provided variety.

Our flowers dappled with late afternoon sunlight... You can see just how close to the water the tent is staged - with Newport Bridge beyond. It's just as magical after dark!

A quick shower left us with a very special backdrop and amazing sunset.
