The following is from a wedding in September at Buttermilk Falls Inn and Spa. You can see my photos on a Buttermilk Blog Post.
By the way, I especially LOVE the Brides Bouquet - How sexy
 I just got photos from the couple's photographer David Schwartz. You can see more of his work on his Website:   and Blog under Kristin and Gregg). So far I only have detail shots but I am hoping for full wedding photos. When I get them I will share them on my Blog. Meanwhile enjoy these and check them out on David's Blog.

Round Hill House - Summer

I just got the professional photos for a really nice Round Hill House wedding we did in the summer. These are some of my favorite Bouquets. I took some nice bouquet photos and centerpieces. It really shows off how nice they are in my staged photos. Check them out on my Blog post called Round Hill House and Eagles Nest -

Onteora Mountain House last Wedding of 2010

What a great season we had at Onteora Mountain House. I am so sad it is over. We did the first wedding of the season on May 1st (check out the Blog post) and we were fortunate enough to finish the season, which ended on October 30th.

I was so happy for the couple because the weather was pretty nice and there were still colorful leaves on the trees that I know meant a lot to the Bride and Groom.
During this season, we have had the pleasure of working with Jeremy Hudler who handles all aspects of the weddings there. (check out his Onteora Blog posts
Wow is he an ambitious person. He may be young but he is  mature, driven, intelligent, and sweet. Steve and I have been very impressed by his professionalism and easygoing nature. He is certainly an added bonus to an already amazing place.

I took photos of the Bouquets outside the Bridal suite. The Brides Bouquet had a mix of mini Sunflowers, orange Gerbera Daisies, dark burgundy Calla Lilies, burgundy Spider Mums, yellow and burgundy Button Mums, red Hypericum Berries, dark red Ranunculus and peach Stock.

Brides Bouquet
The Maid of Honor Bouquet had Sunflowers, peach Stock, red Hypericum Berries, dark red Ranunculus, and burgundy Calla Lilies. The Bride asked me to use extra fabric from their dresses to tie the Bouquets.
Steve made Posies for two sisters with extra flowers he had. There was peach Stock, Sunflowers, burgundy Calla Lilies, and Button Mums.
A Junior Brides Maid carried a pretty Pomander made from Button Mums. It is really sweet.

Here we have two Corsages, one pinned and one wrist.

The Groom
The Ceremony area had an Arch covered with Sunflowers as well as aisle chair arrangements.

The couple wanted their Registration table to look like a “forest floor”. Steve used Moss, tree stumps, gourds, twig balls, and a Manzanita Tree. The couple put guest names on leaves.

Cocktail arrangements were in mini Pumpkins with Mums, Ivy, and Seeded Eucalyptus.

We alternated Wood Boxes, Bubble Bowls, and Cylinders.
There were mixtures of pumpkins and Gourds, Bittersweet, Ivy, Gerber daisies, Stock, Sunflowers, Yarrow, Mums, Calla Lilies and Hydrangea in all the tables.
