After the Ceremony, the guests were bused to the wedding reception…also located in Sharon… in farm country. Cocktails were enjoyed outdoors, under the blue skies of this perfect autumn afternoon.

When the guests entered the tent…they were greeted with elegant country d├ęcor: tall trees decorated the center poles (which were filled with tiny votive candles)…and lush floral arrangements (matching the colors of the Bridal bouquet) decorated the tables, sitting atop beautiful tablecloths.

It was a very special evening of dining and dancing with family and friends.

Flowers, flowers, everywhere. The border gardens were a dream come true…with an abundance of white and purple phlox in full bloom that very day. It did not just happen…but was all planned by the owners of the home and gardens who just happened to be professional landscape designers.

Spring Lake Garden Design

In keeping with the garden feeling, the centerpieces were created to look like the flowers were just picked out of the garden. Dahlias, chamomile and freesia were arranged with fresh herbs: rosemary, sage, oregano and pepper grass. These elegant country –style centerpieces were sitting atop chocolate brown tablecloths. The combination of colors was striking.

Large blooming plants anchored the corners of the tented are...and one dramatic floral arrangement was the focal point at the escort table.

Everyone will share wonderful memories of this late afternoon wedding and reception.

Wedding and Reception at Blue Hill at Stone Barns

Nestled in the Pocantico Hills, New York, the former Rockefeller Barn is now the home of the Blue Hill Restaurant….a fabulous location for a wedding.

Guests gathered in the courtyard under blue skies to witness the marriage, held under a dramatic archway covered with white spirea.

The Bridal bouquet featured white Dutchess d”Amour peonies….created European- style with half of the peonies (the ones in the center) still in bud form (just about to open). The surrounding peonies were just beginning to open. The Bridesmaids’ Bouquet included green hydrangeas imported from Holland with white ranunculus and blue grape hyacinths (which perfectly matched the color of the dresses).

All of the centerpieces were green and white (hydrangeas, freesia, ranunculus and phlox) arranged in very special baskets , handmade from small branches. With a mixture of both round and rectangular tables….the presentation was extraordinary….Very sophisticated country look.
