Blush eye candy

This wedding was pure sophistication.  The location, Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, Connecticut.  It's set back in the woods, down a winding gravel driveway.  It's a unique venue with pretty rooms, distinctive decor and a beautiful backdrop for an outdoor ceremony.

With the stunning arbor as the backdrop for the ceremony, we filled two large urns with an abundance of white and pink delphinium, white stock, antique green hydrangea and open "Anna" roses. 
Centerpieces were a mix of high and low pieces.  Many facilities require any candles be in glass (no open flames), however this facility along with only a hand full of others allow open flame candles.  With the low centerpieces we used a low dish style container and set them on a footed cake dish.  That is a wonderful option for a dramatic low centerpiece.  You can find so many beautiful footed cake dishes at yard sales, flea markets (such as Brimfield and Elephant's Trunk Flea Market in New Milford, CT)  I personally love Milk glass and Depression glass.  There are so many unique options.

Tall curvy glass vases were filled water and white cymbidium orchid blooms with touches of pink on the throat.  At the top a large arrangement of antique green hydrangea, white hydrangea, "Faith", "Sahara" and "Patience" garden roses along with pink peonies made the perfect addition to this late spring wedding.
