Brilliant Colors for a Fall Wedding at Washington Park & Rhinegeist Brewery

A sweep of bright, brilliant colors set the mood for this early fall wedding ceremony in Cincinnati's Washington Park. A laid back reception followed at the historic Rhinegeist Brewery. Our starting point for the floral palette was a swatch of the grenadine colored fabric the bridesmaids wore. It's one of those colors that has its own glow and, surprisingly, can go in many directions. 

The bride's bouquet was a delight of color and texture. Saffron yellow craspedia billy balls are always a favorite paired perfectly with gem tones of thistle, berry purple celosia and snow on the mountain. Her bridesmaids carried slightly smaller hand tied bouquets repeating the same flowers along with silvery dusty miller for unity. 

The warm pine wood floors, skylights broken up by open rafters and original brick walls of Rhinegeist Brewery were the perfect contrast to the bright color palette. Tables were set with gilt glass geometric vessels filled with simple arrangements complimenting the bridal party bouquets alongside watercolor table numbers painted by a friend of the bride. The day was photographed perfectly by Jonathan Gibson.

Italian Inspired Rustic Wedding at Family Farm

An early fall outdoor wedding inspired by the beauty and culture of the Italian countryside. Guests gathered at Spring Hill, the bride's family farm for a day of horse drawn carriages, weathered fences and a family style dinner at country tables. Guests dined alfresco under an open sided tent hung with a large wreath chandelier suspended from the center. Long tables were set with natural linen runners overlaid with dense leafy garlands of seeded eucalyptus and white tapered and votive candles.

The bucolic setting and beautiful weather suited this Tuscan inspired wedding ceremony and reception perfectly. Tuscany brings to mind fresh flavors straight from the earth and a bevy of aromatic herbs like eucalyptus and bay. Guests sat at long farm tables with natural linen table runners laid with a mix of eucalyptus, bay, olive, and rosemary. Tapered, pillar and votives of white candles created a romantic ambiance. Each place setting had napkins with a sprig of lavender and rosemary. Earthy, fragrant and unforgettable. 

The bride was gorgeous carrying a simple bouquet of hydrangea and rose. Bridesmaids wore dresses in a mix of slate, pale and stone grays and carried nosegays of white roses, silvery dusty miller, lavender and pine. Hydrangea foliage and mophead clusters of chartreuse and purple were tucked into oblong tin tubs. Ferns draped over rustic beams transforming the airy loft and softening the old wood to create an ambiance of sophistication and charm. This perfect September wedding day was photographed by Stacy Newgent.
