25 Oct Whimsical Alice In Wonderland Wedding Inspiration
“When I used to read fairy-tales, I fancied that kind of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one!”
― Lewis Carroll
When bride Courtney expressed her desire to have a vintage Alice in Wonderland themed wedding reception her planner, Paula Bass, knew that Kyle Overby was the designer to fulfill her dream! Kyle is the head of Donovan’s Dish Floral and Design Team. He created the most enchanting, floral fantasy in the ballroom of downtown Raleigh’s Sheraton Hotel for Courtney and Nick.
Upon falling down the rabbit hole, into Kyle’s world, we first saw the most adorable table top arrangements complete with towering teacups, playing cards, vintage keys, pocket watches, and bird cages.
Kyle designed her gorgeous bouquet with beautiful white garden roses, peonies, hydrangeas, white asters, fiddle-head ferns . He adorned the flowers with small white pearls and tucked her grandmother’s vintage broaches into the arrangement to give it some personal detail.
Mood setting market lights were strung over the dance floor, adorable rabbit ear folded napkins were placed into coffee cups, and colorful bouquets of flowers were towering over each table.
We were just waiting for the flowers to come alive and sing as illustrated by Lewis Carroll’s story! This look transformed The Sheraton’s Ballroom, and Kyle completely fulfilled Courtney and Nick’s vision for a charming vintage feel with a Alice In Wonderland twist!
