Wedding at Minnewaska Lodge

This wedding I am posting was at Minnewaska Lodge nestled in the Shawangunk Mountains. We had never done a wedding there before. The staff was very nice and the views were great. It is a nice place to have a wedding.

This couple was very nice and fun to work with. It was such a pleasure and warmed our hearts to get emails from the Bride telling us how inspired she was by our work as she followed our Blog. It almost felt like the pressure was up as she had such confidence in our abilities and we did not want to disappoint. Moreover, I think we did not disappoint, as she seemed super happy.
For the ceremony, we wrapped a summer mixed garland around our wrought iron arch. The couple wanted yellow and rust Sunflowers. For the aisle, we used the largest Sunflower heads you have ever seen.

The Entry arrangement was in a large clay Urn with Sunflowers, Curly Willow and blue Delphinium.

There were six long tables with multiple arrangements. We used glass bottles and ceramic containers filled with rust Dahlias, yellow and rust Sunflowers, and green Hydrangea and rust Gerberas.

The Cocktail tables arrangements had rust Gerber Daisies and yellow Freesia and were in root beer bottles.

On the Harvest table was a large arrangement with Delphinium, Hydrangea and grass.

The bar arrangement was in a wooden box with blue Delphinium and rust Sunflowers.

It was so sweet of the Bride who gave this arrangement to her Groom as a gift. We filled it with green Hydrangea, Rust Gerberas, and rust Ranunculus, Stars of Bethlehem, green hellebores and Ivy.

The Bride’s Bouquet had a nice mix of dark rich colors and lighter ones. Steve used wine/burgundy Dahlias, pale yellow Stock, Lady’s Mantle, yellow Freesia, orange/yellow Ranunculus, black Scabiosa flowers and brown Fiddlehead Fern. I added Rosemary, variegated Sage, and Thyme.

The Maid of Honor bouquet was a smaller version of the Brides bouquet. In addition, it had red/yellow speckled Roses and no Fiddlehead Fern.

The Brides Maid bouquet also had red/yellow Roses but had no ivory Stock.

There were two Mom’s posies that had wine Dahlias, green Hydrangea, yellow Freesia and Chamomile.
