June 4 wedding in Cold Spring and at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie, NY

The ceremony took place at Our Lady of Loretto Church in Cold Spring, NY. The mossy curly willow pillar rental pieces are exclusive to our company and is something a little different than the traditional urn arrangements. The bride chose all white pieces to keep them toned down vs. what was to come for the decor at the reception!

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.

On the escort card table, our signature manzanita rental tree greeted guests as they found their table cards. The tree was draped in purple dendrobium orchids and hanging votives.

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.

A beautiful day for a wedding - June 3 at the Howland Cultural Center and Bear Mountain Overlook Lodge

It was a spectacular day for a wedding on June 3 in the Hudson Valley! This bride had a beautiful vintage wedding dress that looked stunning against her romantic bouquet of anemones, poppies, peonies, cream roses, stock bupleurum and other local greenery.

The groom wore a peony boutonniere.

The bridesmaid dresses were a very soft pale pink color, so the bride chose to enhance some of the pink tones to make them pop against the creamy pink background.

The ceremony took place at the Howland Cultural Center. To decorate the site for this wedding, the bride chose 2 wreaths to adorn the pillars in front of the center. The wreaths will preserve nicely as well!

Inside, the ceremony area was marked by a set of ceremony arrangements on our white pedestal rentals inside the room.

At the Bear Mountain Overlook Lodge, the tables displayed a natural soft arrangement of peonies, garden roses, hydrangea, tulips, and local greenery. On each cocktail table was a single pale pink floating peony. And on the bridal party table, the bride's mother spent months collecting vintage mini bottles to scatter down the table with some of the bride's favorite flowers such as poppies, anemones, peonies and other seasonal flowers.
