Wow Of A Wall

Like all brides, Megan Wollover had her heart set on a few must-haves for her August wedding to actor Tracy Morgan. One item at the top of her list: a wall of flowers for the altar, much like the one Kim Kardashian had at her vows to Kanye West. To make that vision a reality, she turned to Lisa Plociniak of A Touch of Elegance in Randolph. Lisa’s husband and business partner, Michael, constructed the wall, which was 12 feet wide and 10 feet tall. “With heavy plywood and a mounted frame to ensure it stayed upright, Michael and the team built the wall over eight hours on the wedding day,” says Lisa. “Oasis tiles covered the wall, and those held the flowers in place.”

The end result was an absolutely stunning backdrop featuring five different varieties of roses, as well as orchids and hydrangeas in shades of soft ivory, cream, champagne and hints of blush. To make the Morgan wall different from its predecessor, Lisa made sure the altar had depth. “We added four columns of varying heights that were covered with a dupioni silk fabric overlay and wrapped with a large satin bow with a bling buckle. Crystal candelabras sat on top, surrounded by flowers.”

Another floral feature at the Morgan vows that Lisa is especially proud of was the sweetheart table. Behind it, there were columns of all different sizes and shapes—some were mirrored, while others were covered in fabric or flowers, and each one had a different type of crystal candelabra. “When you looked at the bride and groom, you saw this beautiful reflection of light and flowers,” says Lisa.

And while it might be hard to top the floral design at this wedding, Lisa is excited to see many brides ready to take chances with their wedding- day décor. “A bride is always going to go with the traditional aspects of the wedding, but what I do find is that many of them are willing to work with unexpected materials that don’t necessarily go together, such as mixing rustic with glam and mixed metals and sparkle.”
