Actress Salma Hayek and billionaire François-Henri Pinault renewed their vows at a lavish wedding in Venice recently. The couple first tied the knot a few months ago at a low key ceremony with only family members present. The second wedding was a grand affair attended by many A-list celebrities from around the world. Stella McCartney, Penelope Cruz and Charlize Theron were present for the weekend of celebrations. The romantic city of Venice is particularly dear to the couple as they first met there.

Salma’s bridal bouquet was a formal hand tied bouquet of white orchids and stephanotis accented with crystals and bound with ribbon down the length of the handle. Stephanotis is highly fragrant exotic flower. It is a popular choice for wedding bouquets. The flower stems are very short so they are wired into bouquets.
The magnificent vase arrangements in the background are super tall cylinder vases with ivory roses submerged under water. The roses are suspended on gold wire throughout the length of the vases. Submerged flowers are a very simple but effective look. The curved shape of the vase magnifies the flowers. Cymbidium orchids also work well in submerged arrangements. Waterproof lights or floating candles can also be placed in the vase to make the arrangement appear to glow.
