Kate will be arranging the floral part of the wedding. Ade will design the table runners.
Kate is a brilliant writer, editor and designer, but she's also an expert in creating atmosphere. Any event I ever attended at her home always had whimsey and inventiveness in the decorative elements. Kate has a way of bringing disparate things together so that they seem inextricably and pleasingly linked. She's been given the task of addressing overall aesthetics for the wedding, with the challenge of incorporating a floral element without using any real flowers. She has enlisted the graphic design talents of Ade Ratna, who will replace the typical flower centerpiece using her more than clever devices. In a big event like this, with so many artists and different points of view, it is important to have someone help to ink it together so that there's a visual cohesion and grace to the evening.
