Reaching 50 years of marriage is a huge achievement — the golden anniversary. So if you or your parents decide to celebrate this remarkable milestone, you might decide to do it up big, the way you may not have done it 50 years ago.
This wedding at St. Elizabeth Seton Church in Rowland Heights was, yes, a 50th anniversary wedding renewal, so naturally, there are a lot of gold-tone flowers — yellow roses, orange daisies — accented with areca palms spray painted gold. This is simply a closeup of the flowers.
This was the centerpiece of the buffet table, using pink ginger, heliconia and fresh mangoes, oranges, grapes, apples, pineapples and bananas. Its gold accents are the gold spray painted areca palms and braided ti leaves.
And, finally, the head table. Seeing as how this was an anniversary wedding, they probably only needed seats at the head table for themselves and their kids (and possibly spouses, if they only had two kids — I’m not sure if they did). The backdrop, with the tulle and lights, was pre-installed; I simply added gold organza to it. The head table is draped with gold organza and white English netting.
