A self-styled wedding

I have some pretty solid aspirations for our wedding. I'm inspired by the venue, a 1920's vacation home in Pasadena, that is filled with gorgeous ironwork, painted ceilings, original details, and features a lovely outdoor space. I want to create a casually elegant setting for guests to eat, drink, relax, and socialize. I want lots of white and deep-hued florals, delicate greenery, cobalt and deep blue linens, and gold basically everywhere. Even though we're not doing a sit-down dinner, the overall feel will be formal–just short of black tie. 

The invitations will be cyanotype, supporting the blue and white color story, with delicate botanicals.

Because of what the venue offers, I'm looking to create a variety of different tablescapes, ranging from small standing height tables to large round dining tables to long rectangular tables, that all feel consistent despite their differences in scale and shape.
