Wright at Home
Elegant, classic architectural details served as the inspiration for this romantic, alabaster-hued event setting at The Arizona Biltmore, a Waldorf Astoria Resort.
Linear shapes, from the invitation border and monogram, to the white-on-white designed cake, were inspired by the influence of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who consulted with Albert McArthur on the building of this iconic venue in 1928.
Wright’sstyle of creating structures that fit seamlessly with their natural environments was echoed in the elegant floral arrangements of stately orchids and pure white hydrangea, presented with crystal votives and candelabra. The gold-embellished menus, chiavari chairs and place settings bring a luxurious touch to the setting.
Whites and ivories
were layered to create a
rich look that is clean,
timeless and relevant.

“We wanted to keep this shoot very Classic Waldorf Astoria,” explains event coordinator Victoria Canada of Victoria Canada Events, who staged the shoot among the resort’s lush gardens. “The neutral tones actually have a hint of blush in them. It was a tasteful but opulent setting to inspire brides and grooms.”
