After Alexandra and Robert’s ceremony, guests gathered for cocktail hour to raise the first of many glasses to congratulate the newlyweds. “The weather had been beautiful all day long,” the bride remembers. “Golden hour was just ending, and the night felt magical. I really couldn’t have imagined a better way to celebrate the start of our marriage.” Here, Alexandra shares the final chapter of their Real BB Wedding story.

Part 4: Reception & Centerpieces

Spirits were high once pre-dinner drinks and hors d’oeuvres concluded. Everyone headed upstairs to The Stone Mill’s dining room where they were welcomed by a warm, enchanted atmosphere. Tables were decorated with low centerpieces featuring roses, ranunculuses, dahlias, lisianthus, oncidium orchids, pieris, and abelia in shades of golden yellow, orange, peach, blush, white, and cream complemented by Italian ruscus and silver dollar eucalyptus. The mix of classic blooms and flowering plants worked to capture Alexandra’s wedding vision of a whimsical garden accentuating the venue’s charmed beauty. “The light pink taper candles added soft elegance, while illuminating the flowers’ texture and dimension. We also trimmed the main ceiling beam with trailing ivy,” she notes.
