classical contemporary chic

yes, we're still at the residence on bukit tunku! but this time we're showing our work on the exterior of our client's dwelling. friends and family members of our client who frequented the residence were in for a pleasant surprise when they encountered the new look we created for the balcony entrance. instead of the usual stone balustrades, we put up a Chanel-inspired facade in white with black accents. loose gatherings of white flowers and block candles in tall glass cylinders finished off the look.

next, we erected white canopies over the outdoor dining area. the design of the canopies mirrors that of the balcony entrance with square valances, black-lined white curtains and roman blinds as accents. beneath each canopy, we hung a shaded chandelier especially bought for the occasion. arriving guests would stream into the canopies through an entryway marked by tall black-washed hurricane lamps fronting hedges of fresh white blooms. we added a little touch of drama behind the hedges with a row of wrought iron fencing painted black and accented with the initials of the newlyweds.

below the canopies, guests were first greeted by a lounge area furnished with sofas, ottomans, plush pillows and acrylic coffee tables with accompanying floral center pieces. beyond this area, regular guests would seat themselves on black chiavari chairs while dining upon round tables lavished with pin-tuffed satin overlays decked with floral center pieces in alternating heights. specially invited guests would sit on classical Louis chairs around the elongated main table conversing amongst them over an island of white floral gatherings accentuated with candelabras.

here are snapshots of the outdoor setting just minutes before the nikah ceremony...
