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. Read More

Part 4: Reception & Centerpieces
When asked about the inspiration for her reception décor, Sammi said, “I knew I wanted everything to stand out from all of the weddings I had ever been to. I also wanted my reception to be a graduation from my ceremony, which was more intimate with softer colors. Florals were always going to be a big part of my decor, so in my eyes, I visualized having three different centerpieces, numerous varieties of flowers and as many shades of pink as possible! I wanted the vibe to be glamorous, romantic, and of course fun!” Read More
