Courtney & Alexander's Inn at Buttermilk Falls Wedding

Courtney and Alexander were married at The Inn at Buttermilk Falls on a perfect fall day. The venue has a little of everything. A breathtaking view of the Hudson River and its mountains. A farm with sheep, lambs, donkeys, lamas, chickens, and even peacocks! A beautiful Inn and several houses in the woods for guests...it even had an amazing luxury tree-house honeymoon suite (more like a small house).

I absolutely loved working with Courtney and Xander - everything you could hope for in a couple - and I am so happy that their day came together in perfection.

These images were captured by a local artist that lives next door to me. Alta has a great talent and I am so happy she came along to help with the set up and to do what she does. Thank you Alta for these fantastic images!...and thanks to Sylvia who came in from NYC to help me with some of the floral design madness ;-)

Rather than just renting a chuppah frame, I designed my ideal structure for this wedding and John worked with a local welder to make it to our specifications. Classic, sturdy and beautiful! So gorgeous and excited to have this permanently in my floral arsenal.

The tallis is a family heirloom. I was happy that Courtney and Xander included something with so much meaning in their ceremony.

I like to having a cohesive look, but I always add something special to the groom's boutonniere.

Two styles of table landscapes...or Tablescapes ('centerpiece' just doesn't do this justice!!!).

Runner of greens, pillar candles, antique black vases arranged with an array of dahlias, snapdragons, an so much more.

  2. It was such an intimate moment and you could really feel the love and energy in the place. Our ceremony at Malibu wedding venues was the most beautiful and romantic ceremony I could have ever expected (and all our guests made sure to tell us they felt the same way once it was over!).

  3. Absolutely beautiful Flower Delivery NYC (they sent me a picture before it was delivered which was so exciting!) The arrangement they built for me contained mint. Everything is considered, even the smell of the overall bouquet.
