𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑯𝒚𝒃𝒓𝒊𝒅 𝒃𝒚 𝑺𝒕𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒘𝒆𝒍𝒍 𝑬𝒗𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒔 is a new type of upscale immersive in-person/virtual event experience with your guests’ safety at the forefront! In-person guests will be taken on an experiential journey, while virtual guests will be made to feel as if they are right there beside you. This is the virtual/Zoom wedding upgraded and reimagined! We set the stage at with a whimsical balloon garland to coordinate with the colors of the peonies and cherry blossoms that guests would see inside. Each in-person guest had their temperature checked at the door and was offered a mask and hand sanitizer. Upon entering the room, guests were enveloped by an orchard of cherry blossoms, projected over 270-degrees. Projection mapping makes it possible to create a visually-immersive space for in-person guests, and these visuals can be changed throughout the event. The A/V experts worked with each virtual guest individually to ensure that all of Madeline and David’s loved ones would be able to join in and participate on their special day. In order to allow guests to feel like they were in the room, and have a front-row seat, we shot the entire event from two camera angles. After the ceremony, Madeline and David had their first dance followed by virtual and in-person toasts. We conceptualized the circular dancefloor to anchor the room and artfully cue guests to social distance. Madeline & David’s logo in gold at the center, surrounded by peonies spaced 5.5 feet apart. Our dancefloor also served as the border for the reception tablescape. We put two large screens within the projections of cherry blossoms on opposite sides of the room. Madeline’s brother, who attended virtually, did a toast and his image was projected larger-than-life on the opposite wall from the other virtual guests. The couple felt he was right there with them for the toast, and the other virtual guest had a front-row seat to see the virtual toast. The caterer did a socially distant spin on the traditional plated menu, with the safety of Madeline and David’s guests in mind. Passed and stationary canapés were served in individual glass-covered domes. An upscale 3-course dinner in a box was pre-set on the table, which allowed us to drastically cut down on the number of staff that came in contact with the food and guests, ensuring safety without compromising on service. We included virtual guests in the festivities with a special surprise box of their own. The week before the ceremony, each guest received a wrapped gift box containing the beautiful wedding program, a mouthwatering mini wedding cake, and mini bottles of bubbly so that they could participate in toasting Madeline & David. These boxes can be custom made for each event, and no request is too difficult for us to execute!
