Carmen & Darren's Glenmere Mansion Wedding Part I

A little rain didn't stop Carmen and Darren's wedding celebration yesterday
at the Glemere Mansion in Chester, New York.

Update: This wedding was featured in Style Me Pretty (linked below)

Shirley temple peonies, Juliet roses, pale pink sweet peas and blue lace bridal bouquet - Splendid Stems Floral Designs

 The bridal bouquet in all its glory. Shirley temple peonies, Juliet roses, and pale pink sweet peas make up the drool worthy composition.

Carmen requested that I dye the lace to become her "Something Blue." I just love the contrast against the pale peach satin ribbon.


Bridesmaid bouquet - white hydrangea, Juliet roses, sweet peas, hypericum berry, and accents of dusty miller - Splendid Stems Floral Designs

The bridesmaids carried white hydrangea, Juliet roses, sweet peas, hypericum berry, and accents of dusty miller. The stems were covered in peach satin ribbon with a glittery sheer overlay.



A splendid array of corsages and boutonnieres.




Glenmere is a spectacular mansion situated in the Hudson Valley. Recently, the mansion has become available to rent  for exclusive events and weddings. The newest space being offered is The Meadow - a majestic lawn with amazing views of rolling hills which surround this unforgettable venue.

 



The enchanting path way leading to the Sperry tent. I fell in love with the statues. I was tempted to make head wreaths for them - maybe next time : )

 Lanterns adorned with garden roses and vases filled with romantic flowers decorated the farm tables that would later be home to a dessert buffet.

The tables were arranged into long family style configurations. I LOVED this set up. The seemingly endless sea of cobalt drinking glasses and navy blue chivari chairs were PERFECT !

The bride and grooms chairs were decorated with garden roses, peonies, and clematis vine. 


Looking forward to sharing some nighttime pictures of Stortz Lighting's handy work in the near future.


Carmen and Darren hired Katie Berger of Sara Kate Events to execute and oversee the fine details of their day. She was a pleasure to work with! A good wedding planner is a great investment, it really frees up your friends and family to enjoy the celebration.

The guest book table held  loose and painterly blooms accented by a moss runner.



The path leaving the tent, so beautiful, I had to include another picture. Congratulations Carmen and Darren, I wish you many years filled with happiness and love!!!!
