I think it definitely works!  The softness in the colors and flowers contrasts the view of the city, and I think that’s really interesting.  Lots and lots of candles will look perfect in that space.

Oh, and correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t David Tutera do a show there?  The bride who wore the Vera Wang gown, I think.  That reception was very girly and soft and it worked!

Totally works. Your venue is gorgeous!!! That view is stunning and doesn’t look like you would have to do much to create the look you want.

Maybe use ribbon tulle as well for some of your details, that works to soften up some of the harsh lines you are seeing.

@multinational:  Ooooh that’s a beautiful venue!  (Where was that when FH and I were looking??)  I love your ideas for decor too.  I think what you’ve chosen goes nicely with the simple elegance of your venue and the chiavari chairs.  

The soft, romantic feel is what I’m going for too πŸ™‚ As a result, we have a lot of pastels in our floral arrangements (down to the guys having lavender-colored bouts).  I’m adding lots of votives and lanterns to the decor too.  I spray painted all the originally black lanterns into gold beauties.  I’m having some of the smaller ones line the aisle.. with flower petals strewn throughout.. and using the larger lanterns to be part of some tables’ centerpieces..

Also, I don’t know if you have a somewhat rustic theme, but I LOVE touches of burlap..!  I think it really softens up the feel of things too πŸ™‚  Or lace!

I think it definitely works! I’m doing something very similar (Liberty House in Jersey City) and am doing a lot of ivory and blush, with a lace and tulle dress. I would just avoid doing anything too rustic and keep it to the feel of soft and romantic

I think the juxtaposition will work well.
