Sarah and Dan’s Wedding
May 18, 2019
The Gables at Chadds Ford – Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania
I met Sarah and Dan two years prior to their wedding. They both knew exactly what they wanted. As we met and discussed their wedding’s floral design, it became very clear these two were meant for each other. Finishing each other’s thoughts, gushing over all the details, and their excitement for their wedding day. They chose The Gables at Chadds Ford as their wedding venue. The ceremony and cocktail hour were held outside. The reception was held in the banquet room.
Sarah and Dan’s wedding color pallet was burgundy, mauve, and white with lots of greenery. Sarah’s bouquet was filled with white roses, garden roses, freesia, astilbe, lisianthus and finished with assorted greens. Sarah chose a single rose with seeded eucalyptus for her bridesmaids.
Dan chose white spray roses accented with seeded eucalyptus for the guys. He did not what a “big” bulky boutonniere.
The Gables at Chadd Ford is a converted barn with a pitched roof and two amazing rustic chandeliers. Sarah and Dan asked to bring a little of the outside inside. We hand-tied assorted fern garlands to both layers of the chandeliers. Then, we framed out the dance floor with Italian ruscus. The idea was to cover the beams to mimic an English garden wall with vines. Guests tables had two designs for centerpieces. One-half of the tables were set with wooden slabs, tall lanterns with accents of Italian ruscus. The other half of the tables were set with a wooden slab, trio of vases with white pillar candles accented with Italian ruscus. We are almost set to welcome the wedding party and guest for a night of great food and dancing. We can’t forget to mention the cake and donuts! Sarah and Dan chose a small cake and lots of donuts for their guests to enjoy. We added small blooms to the top of the cake and finish the display of donuts with more assorted greens and blooms.
Keeping with the rustic theme, Sarah used shutters for her name card display. Painted white, we added assorted greens and pink spray roses to complete the display. All that was left to do was to use all the leftover flowers for the gift table, bar, and welcome sign!
We (JL Original Designs Crew) wish Sarah and Dan many years of happiness. We are very thankful to have been a part of their beautiful wedding. We hope you enjoy all the floral details of Sarah and Dan’s Rustic Garden Wedding. All photos courtesy of Allison McCaffery Photography.
