In August our design team headed up to the Farmer's Museum in Cooperstown, New York to design Caitlin and Mike's wedding. (They are one of our 2010 deserving couple winners) The Farmer's Museum is an absolutely stunning property!
Caitlin was extremely lucky to get a stunning wedding gown from The White Dress by the Shore and Modern Trousseau. What can I say.... except that the gown raised the bar for the look and feel of the wedding!
I believe that your guests should be wowed as they enter your reception with a great entrance piece. Which is usually the escort card table/display or a wonderful hors d'oeuvre table. (or both)
We hung green oxidized metal lanterns from the earthy wood beams of the barn for her reception and lots of candles to her tables. Low centerpieces, were overflowing with lavender dahlias, mini green hydrangea, 'cool water' roses, 'super green' cabbage roses and unripe raspberries. We used several different containers, which included rustic wooden crates with moss sides and lovely footed chocolate/bronze color metal urn. Mason jars of fresh mint and colorful summer blooms were abundant. Sweet sophistication and romance will fill this wedding!
ABC cakes designed a great cake for the couple. We are teamed up with Cookie creatives to create a fabulous candy station with touches of vintage charm and candies handmade right in New England (including rock candy and fruit slices). I stopped by Ocean State Job Lot for some incredible glass jars with wooden tops for displaying the candies. (they have wonderful bargains on things like that!) Honestly, it's kind of hit or miss.... so I tend to stop a few times a week when I'm in the search for something. I also picked up a few rolls of natural twine. (to twist around the stems of bouquets and adding that touch of country rustic charm to boutonnieres)
I'm completely in LOVE with all the details of this wedding! We are so very fortunate that Justin and Mary Marantz will be capturing every little gorgeous detail.
She along with a friend designed a simple and very pretty wedding invitation. With deep sky blue writing and flower motif at the bottom... I'm in love! She's going to create DIY menu cards to match that will be tucked into every guests napkin.
The wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty. Take a look at the FABULOUS images Justin & Mary captured of the entire event! Cooperstown, NY wedding at the Farmer's Museum.
