While it may have been a cold spring day when Danielle & Noah married at Cold Spring Country Club in Long Island, there was nothing but love and warmth in their elegant spring wedding!
Danielle and Noah met on the LIRR, a chance encounter that solidified their partnership when Noah offered Danielle a sip of his beer. With a mutual friend in common, Noah asked for Danielle’s number, and their first date went off without a hitch! When it came time to pop the question, Noah chose an unsuspecting moment – when Danielle’s family went on a big birthday trip to Spain!
Danielle and Noah took their family and shared histories into consideration when it came time to plan for the big day. They chose Cold Spring Country Club in Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island, as their grand venue for the biggest day of their lives. Danielle’s grandparents were members of the club, and she mentioned feeling her grandmother’s presence throughout the day. She even coincidentally got dressed in front of the same locker her grandmother used to use!
Cold Spring Country Club has a sprawling estate that overlooks another popular Long Island wedding venue, Oheka Castle. With such stately grounds, Bride & Blossom took full advantage of the space by creating an ethereal draped tent for the ceremony and a warm reception indoors. The tent was draped in chiffon and illuminated by two crystal chandeliers and countless pillar candles and lanterns lining the aisle. Rose petals were scattered down the aisle runner to create an elegant and romantic entrance for the stunning bride. Wearing a stunning Oscar De La Renta gown and embroidered veil, Danielle carried an elegant and tonal white bouquet of miyuki and vendela roses, white peonies, dendrobium and cymbidium orchids, ranunculus and peonies wrapped in ivory silk ribbon. Her bridesmaids carried complimentary bouquets of miyuki, tibet, sweetheart and spray roses.
Guests were greeted at the reception with a gorgeous card table arrangement that featured clustered flowers leaning in cylinder vases, including cream hydrangea, mini calla lilies and champagne quicksand roses. Their lavish reception included three different style centerpieces as well as a beautiful family table. We took advantage of the spring season and placed large bales of cherry blossom branches in beautiful glass clarinet vases. The towering arrangements were accented with crystals, floating candles and crystal candle holders with taper candles. The second design for Danielle and Noah’s reception were gorgeous tall and textured oval arrangements featuring hydrangea, garden, quicksand, amnesia, sweetheart and blush spray roses. These arrangements stood on elegant crystal pedestals and were also accented with crystal taper candle holders and floating candles.
The third style centerpiece brought some different dimension and height to the room by featuring low, beveled mirrored vases with hydrangea, ranunculus, miyuki, sweetheart, quicksand, amnesia and ivory spray roses. The mirrored vases created a contemporary look when combined with crystal candle holders and pillar vases. The family table featured the same florals in a lush grouping of low arrangements and bud vases on a mirrored runner.
With impressive family speeches and a touching father daughter dance among their favorite moments of the day, this wedding was what all weddings should be, a testament to a couples’ love with their cherished friends and family there to celebrate with them!
