Unique Wedding Reception held at the Famous Old Salem Farm in New York

Horses are wonderfully social creatures, and what can be more joyful than a wedding that includes them? Recently a stable-full at Old Salem Farm served as a celebratory Greek Chorus – as guests filed past stable doors to the tent where a sumptuous candlelight dinner was served.

From the lush green late summer fields to the white silk tablecloths and sparkling crystal, the late afternoon and evening event was the epitome of taste and understated grandeur. The scene cried out for table arrangements of Dutch white hydrangeas, white roses, white freesia and green hypericum berries; at the head table I showcased forest green Italian ruscus, spectacular white hydrangea heads, and green cymbidian orchids.
For the bride’s bouquet I opted for a romantic confection of white hydrangeas, white Hawaiian dendrobium orchids, green hypericum berries, and a collar of dusty miller. The bridesmaids carried a variation on this theme with bouquets of white lisianthus, white roses and green hypericum berries. Imagine flowers as spun sugar …made from the finest of fresh ingredients. The bride and her party looked astonishing, and so did these floral concoctions.

And of course the horses, their velvety heads taking in the happy scene, helped make this a wedding t to remember.
