A quiet farm in rural Ohio was transformed into a black tie setting. The wedding ceremony took place outdoors and was followed by a tented reception on a windy fall afternoon. Green and white tulips, roses, dahlias and orchids filled glass and gold geometric vessels peppering the length of long family style tables. Tall white candles and small gilt votives set a dreamy, romantic mood.Read More
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.
The bride's English heritage and the groom's tea time proposal inspired this absolutely gorgeous garden wedding reception at Cincinnati's Peterloon Estate. Nina and Stan were married in the light filled Armstrong Chapel and an outdoor reception followed on the grounds of one of Cincinnati's most beautiful homes. Reception tables overflowed with runners of eucalyptus, powdery pink and alabaster white roses and peony blossoms whose faces bloomed larger than saucers.
Floral chandeliers dangled from open-sided tents, greenery spiraled up tall clear centerpieces that opened out into robust arrangements. Nina's bouquet was a cascade of the whitest orchid and emerald leaves. Bridesmaids carried smaller arrangements of pastel roses, silver dollar eucalyptus and fuzzy dusty miller. The high tea, English garden motif was apparent in the floral linens, tableware and quirky mix of glassware and votives. Photography by Kortnee Kate Photography.
