It was an ironic sight to see - a fall theme wedding with over a foot of snow seen through the windows of the venue.
It was a challenging day for us as coordinators having to battle against the elements. Several of the band members from NYC were stuck driving up from NYC due to the state of emergency situation. Therefore, the band turned into a dj group for the evening. Four shuttle buses filled with guests for the wedding were stranded on the road for over 3 plus hours coming from the hotels where the guests boarded (normally the travel time would take just 20 minutes). It was a relief to see the guests arrive at the venue safely and the ceremony began soon after. But we weren't out of the clear... a bridesmaid ended up getting sick at the last minute just before making it down the processional.

The bride's bouquet was an all white peony bouquet and the handle was wrapped with her mother's wedding dress fabric. Beneath the bouquet hung 3 small photos of her family there in spirit. The bridesmaids held small posies of hot pink peonies and vibrant orange roses to pop against their eggplant purple dresses.
At the cocktail hour at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie, NY, the bride selected floating flowers in the color scheme of the reception - hot pink open roses and purple dendrobium orchid heads. After the cocktail hour, these floating flowers were then moved to the reception tables to accent all the low centerpieces.
In the main ballroom, an impressive room of 20 oval tables in a purple, orange and hot pink color scheme awaited the guests. Half of the tables were low centerpieces containing orange asiatic lilies, hot pink peonies, purple stock, hot pink roses, and other flowers.
The tall centerpieces were designed in tall trumpet rental vases filled with clear beads and submersible lighting and a strand of purple dendrobium orchids hanging inside. The top piece was a very large display of purple hydrangeas, orange asiatic lilies, hot pink roses, curly willow tips, purple dendrobium orchids, lily grass whisps, stock, and other flowers.
The combination of tall and low pieces worked well in this very large room. At the end of the night the top of the arrangements could be removed for guests to take home along with all the low centerpieces.

The boutonnieres were wintery sprigs with spray roses and the groom's boutonniere contained a ranunculus flower. Sarah helped the guys pin on their boutonnieres. The church was beautiful and set back - such a beautiful gem of a place for a religous ceremony.
The bridal bouquet was stunning - a wintery purple and silver look using purple hydrangea, juniper berries, purple peonies, white ranunculus, and purple roses and spray roses.
Here are a few words sent in an email from the bride to Engaging Floral Designs after the wedding:
Sorry I'm just getting back to you now. We just got back recently from our honeymoon. Chuck and I both would like to say thank you SO much for doing such a wonderful job with the flowers. I loved my bouquet and some of my favorite pictures are the ones that highlight my bouquet. The bridesmaids bouquets were wonderful. The white hydrangeas really popped against their purple dresses. All the flowers lasted really well throughout the day too! I loved that there were peonies in my bouquet and the silver berries were perfect. You do beautiful work! My mom also wanted me to tell you that she loved her corsage. It was the perfect size.
I attached a preview picture. My aunt took this picture after we came out of the Church and after the rice throwing. I love how it shows off the bouquet :)
Thank you again and Merry Christmas!

The perfect setting for a natural woodsy favored wedding is at the Overlook Lodge at Bear Mountain in Orange County, New York. The ceremony took place at the Cliff House on the premises.
The bouquets were red and purple tones of flowers.
At the reception, the centerpieces were displayed on birch rounds to give it a more natural look:
