Sally and Oliver were married at the Waveny House in New Canaan, Connecticut on September 25th. Sally wore a beautiful lace Birnbaum & Bullock gown with a Maria Elena headpiece and her mother's lace veil. Oliver and his groomsmen dawned custom grey suits with yellow ties and purple socks. The maids chose gowns in shades of grey with flower and ruffle details. They had a gorgeous evening wedding with a Jewish ceremony in the walled garden with the majestic Waveny House as a backdrop. Guests arrived to the ceremony greeted with drinks and snacks in paper cones. Ivory pashmina's were rolled into a rustic basket and tied with gray satin ribbon. The chuppah was planted in four garden urns with a canopy made of the families prayer shawls.
Inspired by yellow with vintage elements, we designed a garden styled affair in yellow, grey, white and black with hints of green. BLUSH created gorgeous arrangements in vintage black urns, silver mirrored vases and square concrete containers in shades of yellow. The centerpieces lined long, family styled tables with slate grey linen and white runners. Custom black and white toile napkins were folded with a menu card highlighting the evening's meal, which included duck, short rib and mahi mahi. An oversized yellow satin bow adorned each napkin. Sally and Oliver wanted to seat their guests at each table, so we created small square place cards displayed on champagne corks with a silver headed pin. Each table had a dainty plate of chocolate artisan goodness courtesy of Knipschildt Chocolatier.
Guests danced the night away to the sounds of the Clark Eno Orchestra, sipping prosecco and highballs of mint gin fizz and pomegranate margaritas.
