Every elegant detail behind the food and décor.
Here’s how Sarah transformed her family’s summer home into a lovely, vintage-inspired wedding venue.
“The feeling I was going for was ‘vintage, country, elegant.’ I didn’t have a defined color scheme, but I wanted the tones to be in keeping with the surroundings. We went with a lot of greens, dark blues, dusty pinks, and deep reds.
“The tablescapes were maybe my favorite thing to design (besides the shoes). For a warm and glowing look, I used smoky amber glassware, bronze cutlery, and antique brass candlesticks with long tapers. I loved how intricate the print was on the china, so to let it stand out, I stuck with neutral linens and woven placemats. The green napkins then tied everything together.”
“Our dining room has these beautiful wooden beams, so we wrapped them in sweet pea vines and hung glass globes with candles from varying heights. We also covered the fireplace mantels in eucalyptus, heirloom chrysanthemums, bluebonnet, and figs to complement the centerpieces.”
“I hand-painted everyone’s place cards and menus, which was a really joyful activity for me. The borders are figs and privet berries, and on the menu, I included elements from each course. Definitely, a first doing a watercolor squash and brussels sprout.”
“A long-time family friend recently launched her own catering company, Nosh Boutique Caterer, so we were so thrilled to work with her.”
“She helped us create a seasonal menu with dishes like sesame ginger chicken dumplings, sweet potato gougères, and filet of beef with brown butter brussels sprouts and pancetta.”
“Not only was everything delicious, but she was also so mindful of following Covid protocols. All of her efforts made the day incredibly special.”
“My sisters made this wonderful four-tier marble cake with chocolate icing, and decorated it with strawberries, blueberries, and eucalyptus. It was the same recipe our mom used for all of our birthday cakes growing up.”
