As a true testament to love and marriage, Beethoven’s words resonate with the hearts and souls of romantics and those inspired by love. “Ever Thine, Ever Mine, Ever Ours” is perhaps one of the most iconic love letters written in the English language, and was addressed to Beethoven’s Immortal Beloved, a woman who’s exact identity still remains unknown.
The magnificent words uttering phrases such as “I can only live, either altogether with you or not at all”, “I have determined to wander about for so long far away, until I can fly into your arms […] [where] my soul [can be] enveloped by yours into the realm of spirits” and “What longing in tears for you — You — my Life — my All — farewell. Oh, go on loving me — never doubt the faithfullest heart” (full translation of letter here).
In this beautiful modern take on a palatial fairy tale wedding, soft hues in pastel shades of pink, violet, blue & ivory abound in voluminous bushels of roses, orchids and tulips. Depth was created on the table scape with three arrangements; large bouquets of cascading flowers set atop glass pedestals and smaller arrangements of tightly bound roses. The table is swathed in ice blue linens woven with silver, emphasizing the glistening silverware and speckled silver candleholders.
A perfect unification of classic romance and modernized detail all set in an idyllic interior for your classic wedding, this inspiring design would even have Beethoven swooning (at least we’d like to think so)!
We hope this Austrian inspired, 18th century regal design has embedded a little bit of Beethoven romance in your hearts!
