Get ready to be wowed, Tate + Kyle’s festive fall Race & Religious wedding was an affair to remember. Kenny LaCour of Grand Events spearheaded a four day extravaganza to celebrate this stunning couple! From the decor to the flow of the party, each element felt fresh and unique while still showcasing the drama and flair of New Orleans. Within the ceremony space,Tate added Moroccan rugs, two of which came from her home in Pittsburgh. Before the doors opened and her dad walked Tate down the aisle, she looked down and saw the rug from her hallway at home peeking out. She said this small touch provided both of them a sense of calm before taking those first steps. Sara Perez Ekanger of Antigua Floral was the mastermind behind Tate + Kyle’s floral dreams come true. They requested bright hues with tropical greenery but also subtle colors with dark accents. Sara was able to interpret their ideas and consolidate them into the most angelic palette that felt both unique and modern, yet sophisticated and classic. To complement the elegant yet funky Race & Religious space, Kenny brought in antique French bars, bistro furniture, and vintage plates to enhance its elegance. As a popular wedding venue, the couple wanted the space to feel fresh, using the floor plan in a different way. Not only did they flip the stage to to the opposite side of the venue, they turned the entire first floor of the house into a dessert room, complete with a traditional Pittsburgh cookie table and mis-matched antique plates piled high with treats. They added bars, food stations and cigar/bourbon rooms in nooks and crannies that are typically overlooked, creating a flow that accentuated the property’s interesting landscape. Phunky Monkeys got the jams going when the reception rolled around. An incredible set of entertainers, they truly made the party at this festive fall Race & Religious wedding. P.S.
