Pink flamingoes at Winterthur Estate? You read that right. By using a colorful palette of oranges, yellows, and pinks, The Styled Bride and a team of local creatives transformed the estate’s picturesque french gardens into an elegant, tropical paradise. Bright florals by Alyssa Rainville and a fun, flamingo cake topper by Ann Wood Handmade look right at home next to the Lazaro, lace gown and vintage, velvet furniture. The rest? See it all captured by DOLA Photography in our Vault.

From DOLA Photography… What better place to honor greenery, the 2017 Pantone color of the year, than a shoot at Winterthur? This beautiful wedding venue was the perfect backdrop for a tropical, french garden editorial. An estate in Delaware’s scenic Brandywine Valley, the ancestral home of Henry Francis duPont features a reflecting pool surrounded by lush greens which perfectly complemented the pink, cream, and gold tones in this shoot. A bright pop of yellow and orange in the florals created a fun, spring vibe.
Lizzie’s long sleeve Lazaro gown had an incredible floral, lace detail, and she looked like a queen wearing it with a Haute Bride headpiece. A classic black Vera Wang tuxedo on Ryan was a sophisticated choice for this upscale garden property. So regal! Rose gold rings from L. Priori Jewelry were a fresh pick over a more traditional yellow gold or platinum. Restaurant Associates created an inspiring and mouth watering dinner menu. They’re the exclusive caterer at Winterthur, and they definitely do it right! The blueberry crostata was yum! For dessert, a bold pink cake from Whipped Bakeshop was topped by the cutest pink flamingos by Ann Wood Handmade. The cake plate and serving set from BHLDN – our favorite wedding shop – was a must to complete the look. For the party, we opted for a whiskey bar and champagne tower. Party on!
