Shower of Love and Light

Every wedding venue should be treated as a white canvas to be moulded into the vision the couple and wedding planner agree upon. Having been in the wedding industry for over ten years now, we often come across the same venue more than once. However, this has never impeded on our ability to curve every angle that shapes it to represent the personality and love story it will house. When Marc and Magalie came to us, they had one dream: to get married at the groom’s second home: the family-owned hotel Massabki. Our mission was to dress up a venue that both the bride and groom knew like the back of their hands.

The groom’s family graciously lent us their 98-year-old hotel in the middle of the Bekaa Valley for their son’s wedding. It was now our job to shower it with the couple’s devotion. The vision of love we had in mind would take us an extended period of time to put in place. So a couple members of the Matisse Events team set up shop in the Bekaa for the entire week leading up to the event. When it finally came time to tie the knot, Marc and Magalie arrived at the hotel’s chapel in a parade of vintage cars, which the groom’s family has collected throughout the years. The chapel was adorned with stacks of wheat, in order to wish the happy couple a lifetime of prosperity and happiness. Once they sealed their nuptials with an eternal kiss, it was time for the pièce de résistance: the welcome drinks.

Family and friends were escorted to a special area of the hotel that had never been used until that very day. Once there, they were greeted by a theatrical light installation of epic proportions. This cosmic installation was a technical feat in and of itself: we dressed up the forest in lights all the while strategically adding mirrors at select corners to create a magical illusion. As a result, guests felt completely engrossed by the glow of the couple’s love.

We took this light show up a notch when it came time for dinner, as we installed a shower of lights over the 3000 square meter dining area. Family and friends literally blocked the venue’s entrance, as they all huddled up to take pictures of the beautiful set up before making their way in.

Guests dined together and toasted to the happy couple under the watchful eyes of a million stars…
