I had no idea there would be a wedding (albeit a crazy maenad – devil in the form of a steer wedding) in the season finale of True Blood. I just chuckle at our timing of our True Blood inspired wedding posts. Be sure to check out my colleagues blogs (links below) for their inspiring weddings.

Today’s True Blood wedding post is all about the RED eye candy. Remember this location from yesterday’s post? Here are those beautiful doors, with a lighting pattern on them and the ceiling. Red lighting bathing the entire area. The balls are made with carnations. I, like Carrie, from Sex and the City love carnations especially for weddings. I love them when they are just carnations and one color otherwise it looks like it costs: inexpensive. The below these large floral balls made up of red carnations look luscious. On the sides of the stairs are red glass altar candles in pairs of two.

Here is a close up of those rose covered doors. LOVE IT! with vine lighting pattern.

Imagine Sookie Stackhouse wearing the black Sheri Hill gown from yesterday’s post mingling among her guest in this southern style opulent venue. Tables swathed in a red crinkle linen with red beaded and embroidered over lay. Adding in clusters of red votives, beautiful glassware with hints of red finished off round centerpiece comprised of red roses, with a little bling. Black chiavari chairs, white chair pads and red feathered boas capping off the chairs.

For any event, lighting is the best investment. This venue was swathed in red lighting with a vine pattern. Look for a post soon on lighting and how it makes your event from a nice event to an awesome event.
