Andy and Laura’s wedding in September of 2008 was filled with fabulous details. The ceremony and reception took place at their home in Jericho (just a few miles away from my house) and the setting was absolutely amazing. I love their style and they took great care to create an amazing day for their guests. A newly renovated pond took center stage in the yard and all the days’ activities took place around it. Dish was there to serve up a fabulous feast. Doesn’t the menu sound tasty?!
I love the fun and festive look of the tent! I made three different centerpiece designs for the tables to create an eclectic, funky feeling. A few of the tables had large stems of cymbidium orchids in tall clear glass vases and the rest featured beautiful glass bowls that Andy found which were filled with either arrangements of orchids, protea, roses & delphinium or floating orchids & candles. The colors really worked with the late September foliage. The linens and rentals are from Vermont Tent Co.
Guests entered through a lovely cocktail lounge (in the garage which looked nothing like a garage when they got done with it!) and walked past a pagoda on their way to the ceremony. The couple had a path cleared through their woods and created a space for the ceremony. Guests walked through an old doorway along the way that Laura found at some sort of architectural salvage (which is SO fabulous!) and colored banners were strung up in the trees (a good 15-20′ high, too!) to billow in the breeze.
Even though there are a few feet of snow outside my window right now the bright colors from the foliage at this wedding are making me feel all warm and fuzzy.
