The inspiration for Sebastian’s awesome mitzvah came from the Mission Impossible films. Take a look this gorgeous event with the team at Details Details. Thank you to John & Joseph Photography for these spectacular images!
As you can see here, the original movie poster features dramatic red, black, and white colors- so we obviously used that as our color scheme! We wanted something beautiful and opulent yet unique and fun (looking back, Sebastian’s celebration couldn’t have combined the two any better!) The team at Copper Willow Paper Studio did an amazing job translating the look and feel from the original movie poster to Sebastian’s invitations!
We opted with solid red designs which were off-set by solid white designs. We chose to concentrate color on color (white flowers with white napkins on white linens under white lighting) to create more drama in the ballroom. Also, notice our numerous broken glass rods and vibrant white orchids suspended from the designs!
For some of our white tables, we covered our “rolling hills” centerpieces in lush white florals and placed beautiful large white designs atop sheets of acrylic to create the feeling that these arrangements were almost “floating” above the guests.
The long table designs were first conceived when Shawna saw another structure that we have at the warehouse placed on its side. This object had an interesting, curved “wave-like” skeleton and she instantly translated that to the design for the tabletop. These gorgeous wavy centerpieces scream “Mission Impossible” to us! They are so uniquely awesome in the visual journey one must take when looking from one end of the table to another. It was totally that “wow” factor Sebastian and his family were wanted for the event!
Deciding on the look of the dance floor proved to be a difficult one- there were so many awesome directions that we could have gone in. Ultimately, we went with a dangerous bullseye decal on a purely white dance floor. The end look was so sleek and clean while maintaining the “Mission Impossible” look.
The escort cards rested atop lush red florals inside sleek briefcases.
Lastly, we created a three-dimensional backdrop for Sebastian’s mitzvah that combined a lit cityscape with red acrylic sheets. So gorgeous!
