Onteora Mountain House -May first wedding

To kick off our season we did a beautiful May 1st wedding at one of our favorite locations called Onteora Mountain House near Woodstock.  http://www.onteora.com/
This was the first wedding of their season too.

We say it has a rustic elegance. There is a fabulous view as well as a nice pavilion to do the reception in. The owner, Bob is so nice and he has a great assistant named Jeremy. Everyone who works there is helpful.
The landscape is also beautiful and I really like the Bridal cottage that is higher up the mountain.

Our couple was fun to work with, so nice and with great taste. Their color inspiration was a sunset and was a fun palette to work with.
The bride is from Kentucky and has an association with the Kentucky Derby, which was on the same day. She wanted us to incorporate reds into the centerpieces to honor that.

The bride wanted all the bouquets to be pales shades of peach, pink, and ivory. There were five bridesmaids all wearing a sash with stitching and colors of orange, lavender, red, yellow and dark pink.

We made each Bridesmaids bouquet with an accent color to match.
All the Groomsman’s boutonnière matched the Bridesmaids.
In addition, all the Bridesmaids had sage in their bouquets.

The Bride had all pale shades. We added scented geranium and Bleeding Heart.

We chose grey linen and ivory napkins. There were 10 tables so we alternated pale color Urns and bright “sunset” colored Urns as well as pillar candle arrangements in low dish w/ floral sprays.

This is our new birch Huppah and was the first wedding we used it on.
Since the couple wanted minimal flowers, you can see the Huppah clearly.

The Bride showed us a photo she liked with greens and hanging flowers.
We used lemon leaf garlands and tied white flowers to them. We also used Weeping Willow and branch.

For their Registration table they also wanted something simple. We used branch to hang their guest names. I like the color of the tags.

My photos are nice but it's great when I can get the professional ones. the following are from  from Josephine Sittenfeld. She's really great. you can find her at http://www.josephinephotography.com
If you remember from above, all the bouquets had accent colors to match their shawls.
