For the wedding reception, we had the task of transforming a
very high-ceilinged, multi-purpose facility (gym)
into a beautiful bridal reception venue.
To give the illusion of a lower ceiling and a cozier, less industrial space
we began collecting the biggest brass chandeliers we could find.
We were amazed at the bounty once we began searching and gathered five in all.
Here is the before of one:
You get the idea.
We hung them outside and went through a bunch of cans of white spray paint.
I found a site online where I ordered dozens of crystals.
The Christmas ornaments came out just in time at Hobby Lobby
for yards of iridescent beads and crystal baubles.
We even carried a smaller one on location for the bridal portrait shoot.
It was around these chandeliers we built the whole
shabby chic theme of the wedding and had a great time doing it!
