Steph & Steve’s Fall Wedding at Cairnwood Mansion

This wedding was near and dear to my heart.  Stephanie worked for me at the flower shop when she was in college and I remember when she first went out with Steve.  I was lucky enough to see them grow as a couple over the years and I can honestly say they are perfect for each other.  When they got engaged I was so excited she asked me to do the flowers.  I was even more excited when she told me the reception was going to be at Cairnwood.  Stephanie has impeccable taste so I knew I was going to have some fun!  Details are below.

Her inspiration: vintage milk glass to match the mansion’s setting

Her colors: green and ivory with a pop of raspberry against accents of gray/silver

Her favorite flowers: orchids, calla lilies, garden roses and hydrangea

Her other fabulous vendors I got to work with: Ryan Schwartz Wedding Photography & Robert Fair Catering
