Having about the blackest thumb one can have, I am always so very, very impressed with floral design. I swear it’s magic – what these designers can do. This Connecticut wedding from Datura – A Modern Garden, brings me to another level of floral-awe with it’s completely different, completely cool designs. And I suppose Datura HAD to bring it to the table, because the rest of this love fest? Well, let’s just say it’s amazing, and that’s an understatement. The glamour, the style, the ambiance, the ring bearer – every single little detail captured by JAGstudios has got me giddy with the cool-ness factor. Can one be giddy over cool? I guess I should play it off an say, I’m down with the cool-ness factor. But I just can’t help it. I love this wedding. Click here for the full image gallery.
We selected the beautiful and breathtaking Winvian property in Morris, CT to be the site of our wedding on June 11, 2011.
The style of our wedding was whimsical, romantic, and with a touch of elegance. We couldn’t have asked for a more talented team of vendors to help craft our perfect wedding.
Our florist did an amazing job of using flowers that were in season and local to the surroundings. The centerpieces were all unique works of art that mirrored our color palette and became a great conversation piece for our guests
Our wedding cake was the best cake we ever ate. It was a chocolate cake with hazelnut and raspberry filling with handcrafted edible orchids running down the side of the cake.
The chef at the Winvian made a fabulous selection of using organic and seasonal ingredients form their garden to create wonderful food for our guests.
The color palette for the wedding was to use earth tones colors with bursts of yellow, blue and purple to compliment the rustic charm of the Gordon Brown House. We added pin spot lighting to the tables, up lighting to the barn house to attain a romantic mood.
We had so many wonderful moments from of our wedding. One moment was hearing the raindrops against the roof of the tent during the exchange our vows. The sound was so peaceful and calming to us. Another favorite moment was our first dance to Andrea Bocelli & Celine Dion’s “The Prayer.”
Our wedding day was filled with love, unity and spirituality. Above all, we could not have got married without the support and love from both our family and friends. For that we are truly thankful and blessed.
