Wild Stems

Hey look! That insane cherry-blossom-and-dogwood-canopy wedding we did at the 23rd Street Armory last April is up on @philawedding ‘s blog today, AND in their Spring magazine! Woo hoo! . . I’ll be honest… that was one of the hardest installations we’ve ever pulled off. So many things went wrong, and so many curveballs required us to pivot our install process over and over. But we did it! Interested in the story? Read on… . . First off, the venue’s lift wasn’t working the week of the wedding, meaning we would have no way to reach the 40ft ceiling. So instead, we installed hundreds of feet of cable across the football field-length width of the room. . . Then, my wonderful, amazing, long time branch-farming Beau, Mr. Ben Fisher, showed up to the armory with a truck full of gorgeous flowering branches from his NJ farm… but they were a variety of cherry that was MUCH heavier than I expected. Okay, no bother, my team’s got muscle, we’ll get those branches in the air… . . But it was also a fluke 90° day, and the armory was not air-conditioned! I worried our beautiful blossoms would wilt horribly by the time the wedding guests arrived, so we spent two precious hours of prep time, “wet-packing” Every. Single. Branch. before they went in the air, to make sure they would stay hydrated and fresh the whole night. . . When it was time to get our massive, spiraling, branch tornado canopy in the air, we really struggled with the weight of it. Luckily, our good pal Max from @wearesynergetic swooped in with his little mini lift, and helped us conquer the blossom beast! . . This was definitely one of my favorite weddings from last year, and that has so much to do with the amazing team of vendors on the job… @arielleferaevents , @nutmegcakedesign , @daybydayphilly , @eliciabryan , @wearesynergetic , @maggpierentals , and all the army guys at the helm of the #23rdstreetarmory . . #23rdstreetarmorywedding #cherryblossomwedding #industrialwedding #springwedding #wildstemsinstallation #phillywedding #aprilwedding #weddinginstallation #dancefloorcanopy
