Starry Night

On one of the warmer Saturdays in October, I had an at-home wedding. I always find at-home weddings charming and old-fashioned – I think we forget that most weddings were at home for years before the rise in popularity of country club or other venue settings.

The palette was all white with a hint of aubergine against a mix of grays, pewters, and silvers all within the most beautiful setting of all – the outdoors.  A clear tent can be so effective, and most of all when one is able to look up and see the trees and stars above.  My photos, taken at the end of the afternoon, don’t convey the incredible impact, but I hope you can get an idea of how breathtaking it was after the sun set.

Two different looks were created for the centerpieces: flowers encircling a cluster of manzanita branches, off of which we hung candles in glass votives and flowers atop silver pedestals, surrounded by pillar candles. The bridal table was stunning – a traditional banquet-style table anchored with five urns of hundreds of roses encircled with vine angel hair, smaller arrangements of hydrangea, and multiple candles and greens to finish it.

After dinner, guests were invited into the barn to dance and continue the celebration – how marvelous!

Flowers pictured include: white hydrangea, aubergine dahlias, Tibet roses, white stock, white hypericum berry, vine angel hair, green moss, white snapdragon, salal, cymbidium orchids, Picasso calla lilies, white calla lilies, Schwarzwalder calla lilies, Italian ruscus, grass, green and purple seeded eucalyptus, gilded leaves.
