Using some of the same key elements ~ candlelight and square crystal columns ~ Colin Cowie ties the ceremony and reception areas together beautifully. Adding to the already stunning architecture of the room, these pieces set the stage for a grand affair. These crystal columns can be ordered in custom lengths

shows the way that color can be added with event lighting Ñ one of the things we love about these columns is how versatile they are, taking on the color that you select. For event planners, they are the ultimate in reusable large scale event Decor. (We love the gorgeous custom design with the couple"s initials, too. Such a bold, timeless touch. We Southerners can't help but think that the monogram would look pretty swanky on pillows and towels, too.)
