Our team produced a weekend of events that began with an elegant copper draped dinner party for seven hundred guests adorned with stunning copper details and dramatic lighting elements, creating a warm and intimate space within a large ballroom. After dinner, guests entered a tented dance party with white and crystal decor, white branches strung with 2400 icicles, magnificent chandeliers, Rrivre Works cocktail tables filled with giant crystal ice sculptures accented with the glow of candlelight. Outside of the tent was an impressive faux snowstorm that lasted five hours and blanketed the grass, flocked oak trees, and everything in its reach with snowy white beauty. Each detail was perfectly uplit and very dramatic. Along the dance floor was a 30ft LED screen showing images of ice, snow, and winter scenes that enhanced the feeling of the ice palace decor. Dancing the with the guests throughout the evening was a costumed Cirque du Soleil extreme stilt performer in a custom-designed white and crystal Jack Frost costume.
