Romantic, Lush Garden Wedding at Greenacres Art Center

A gorgeous June wedding at Greenacres Art Center on a perfect summer day. There was a hint of chill in the air adding a sense of freshness and renewal to the blue afternoon sky. The couple's wedding vision was dreamy, abundant lush gardens where florals were the focal point. Every detail, from the dense floral arch we constructed to soft natural linens to tables overflowing with vine and leaf convey a sense of timeless romance. 

The bride's attendants each carried a unique bouquet. Wild peach and coral roses, papery pink roses, hydrangeas and tiny rose buds mingled together creating a dreamy, exquisite garden of floral delights. 

The ring bearer's pillow took the shape of a bird's nest filled with moss and wax flowers all tied with natural twine. 

The open tented reception was situated next to the stone walls and fountain of the estate. Both long and round tables seated guests which added a feeling of whimsy and playfulness to the elegant dusty rose and lace table cloths. We created tablerunners by repeating the same greenery and pastel florals from the arch. Each table had a stunning mix of foliage and fresh blooms warmly lit by golden votives that seemed like fireflies landing as the evening passed.

Blue & White Wedding Inspired by Delft Pottery

Greenacres Art Center is an absolute dream of an event venue.

 With stone walls, lush grounds, and unique architectural elements, Greenacres' ability to recast itself through florals, linens, lighting and design always delights.

Details...

For the wedding ceremony we created a floral arch woven with eucalyptus, rose, peony and hydrangea that stood in front of a shallow, stone pool. The bride carried a hand tied, pale white and blush bouquet with smooth, rounded barely opened peony, white and pink roses and silvery dusty miller. Bridesmaids wore navy and carried smaller bouquets with bright pops of magenta and brilliant white hydrangea.

Magenta, blush, vibrant green and brilliant white carried through to the reception. Table arrangements were a harmonious mix of the floral palette in a variety of clear glass vessels, silver vases and delftware inspired blue and white pottery. White paper lanterns hung from the open tent hovering above tables covered with white table cloths and blue monochromatic ikat linens.

Keeping blue out of the florals allowed both the pottery and fabric designs to play a larger role in the overall design. The white of the florals bridged the gap between the decor and the flowers. The blue patterns added a light, watery and relaxing mood to the evening and were a perfect artistic compliment to the robust peony, rose and hydrangea.

Garden Wedding at Greenacres Art Center

LMR007.jpg
 

Guests walked into a floral dreamland of peony, larkspur, rose, hydrangea and astilbe at this rustic and glamorous outdoor wedding at Greenacres Art Center. From a lavender and eucalyptus lined stone aisle to an airy blush reception tent whose ceiling was layered with over 14,000 blooms of blue delphinium, foraged greenery, Queen Anne's lace and larkspur whose tall spires were dense with pale purple flowers.   

The couple were married under a wooden arbor we transformed into an asymmetrical ceremony arch thick with lavender, white and mauve roses, silvery greenery and sky blue delphinium. All the elements worked together to create what the bride called a "loose, natural feel". Mismatched decor, a view of the night sky and long farm tables set with centerpieces of astilbe, roses and hydrangea lent an air of rustic romance to the idyllic setting.
