Centerpieces in tones of red were magnificent, created by Matthew Robbins of Artfool. We added gold chargers and eliminated fussy bread plates to enhance the richness of the tables.
The bride's tables were named after designers and the groom's after mathematicians/philosophers. Hand calligraphy on burnt sugar stock was provided by the Wedding Library.
The groom loves tetrahedrons because "they have four sides, and yet are so strong". We had these custom die cut, letterpressed, hand lettered and tied with wax string to perform as escort cards. The results delighted the groom and the guests who know him.
The menu card shows off the wedding colors, design and the great Rainbow Room menu. Card by Dauphine Press, by the Wedding Library.
The couple's dog Annie, reproduced in cake. It was so realistic that everyone declined to cut into him and the cake went home with the family. (Note the math equation written in gold around the dog's dish.)
Another math touch -- the groom's favorite place is Chichen Itza, Mexico. This ice sculpture by Okamoto incorporates many of the mathematical wonders represented by this 1500 year-old pyramid.
