The Garrison - Fall Wedding

This wedding was on Sunday at the Garrison. Again, we had beautiful weather even better than Saturday. I also believe this weekend to be the peak of foliage.

In the Brides Bouquet we used dark red Ranunculus, rust Roses, green/burgundy Hydrangea, burgundy Dahlia’s, Lady’s Mantle, purple Anemones, dark burgundy Calla Lilies, Cherry Brandy Roses, ivory Stock, two sizes of Brunia and lots of branch. Even the stems of the bouquet were wrapped with branch. I think this was really interesting and cool.

For the Maid of Honor we used rust Roses, wine Ranunculus, rust Mokara Orchids, ivory Stock, Bittersweet and Brunia.

The Brides Maids Bouquet had two types of Brunia and Seeded Eucalyptus.

The Mom’s Posies had Cherry Brandy and Quicksand Roses, Bittersweet, wine colored Ranunculus and ivory Stock.

The Groom’s Boutonnière had Brunia, red Ranunculus, burgundy Dahlia, Seeded Eucalyptus and a burgundy Calla Lily.

We alternated the centerpieces using a Birds Nest and an English style Cloche. For the nest we used green/ burgundy Hydrangea, green Hypericum berries, peach Stock, burgundy Dahlia’s, Lisianthus, green Cymbidium Orchids and Spanish Moss.

In the Cloches, we used purple Kale, blue Hydrangea, rust Orchids, burgundy Dahlias, Lisianthus, green Hypericum berries, lavender Cosmos and Okra. The Mother of the Bride made the gorgeous place card holders out of Acorns - check them out. We love these and plan to make them ourselves for next year’s fall weddings.

Onteora Mountain House Fall Wedding

On this day, the weather started windy dark and dramatic, great for photos but not for a wedding. It was really touch and go for a while. The nice thing about Onteora is the fact that it is so beautiful even with inclement weather. If the weather happens to be bad, you can get married in the pavilion, which still feels like it is outside. As the day went on it got nicer and nicer. Don’t want to jinx anyone by this statement but it almost never rains on our Onteora weddings.

I really love the colors of these fall Bouquets. For the Brides Bouquet we used ivory Stock, purple Mokara Orchids, Cherry Brandy Roses, wine colored Calla Lilies, and wine colored Ranunculus, Hypericum berries, purple Anemone and magenta Cosmos.
