Lauren + Mark Art Deco Themed Wedding

When Blush Events learned that Lauren and Mark were going with an art deco themed wedding, we couldn’t contain our excitement!

In our first meeting with Lauren and Mark we knew that they embodied everything that the decorative style from the 1920’s and ’30’s is known for:

They were precise, bold and strong. Both in their love for each other and their vision to give their friends and family an unforgettable day as they celebrated their nuptials with unique flair.

Blush Events Planning was ready to throw a glamorous party that would make the Great Gatsby jealous and would become the talk of Virginia!

With the theme set, there was no doubt that the opulent Dover Hall Estate would be the place to hold the ceremony and reception.

Tucked away between Richmond and Charlottesville, the English Tudor estate is known for it’s charm and fascinating collections. It held all the promise of achieving a magical event that would leave guests sighing over the visual feast of art and antiques while complimenting Lauren and Mark’s bold design choices.

Working with Lauren’s fashionable colour palette of coral, sky blue and accents of gold, we created a prestigious feel to the room. From the flower arrangements on the table to the gold plate settings that gave a faint glow from the frosted votive candles, everything about the room was enchanting.

The perfect backdrop to celebrate Lauren and Mark’s first moments together as husband and wife.

Setting a mood of romance for the new bride and her husband, we created a quiet table for two that announced their new status as a married couple. This allowed Lauren and Mark to have a few private moments together and made for a fabulous place to take photos with friends and family.

The challenge and delight for us was to work with Lauren’s wish to include a sense of nature in the midst of class and high style. We achieved this by drawing on the geometric essentials found in succulent plants and vibrant leaves. Richmond local Flower Guy Bron delivered exquisite bouquets and arrangements that dazzled and complimented the theme and style of this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Adding touches of glamour to Lauren and Mark’s vision came easily. With a fanned feather arrangement for the escort table, we created a sense of fun and whimsy, allowing guests to have fun and let loose, while taking in the treasures on display throughout Dover Hall Estate.

One of the highlights was creating a backdrop that allowed for the majestic work done by the cake artists at Sweet Fix to stun and awe guests. In a moment of hushed whispers, it caused murmurs from a few women declaring, “The cake is too pretty to cut!” Mission to drop jaw..accomplished!

Working hard to please our clients and give them an experience beyond their expectations is always our goal. We become friends with our clients as we work alongside them to create a day that will bring them a smile years from now.

A smile that spreads wide as they remember the soft, romantic lights and the feeling of elegance that they had as they entered their event for the first time.

What surprises us is when our clients go beyond our expectations. Lauren and Mark had agreed not to give each other any gifts. The stand out moment of the night for us was when Mark came, in his quiet and gentle way, and presented his beloved with a beautiful choker to commemorate their day.


This gesture right here is why we work hard to take care of all the details so that you can have magical, significant moments in an atmosphere that leaves you blushing with happiness.

A Toast!
To Lauren and Mark, may your love stay bold, strong and precise!
Love, your friends at Blush Events!
