Poolside

Poolside

Looking toward the house, the cocktail hour has the most beautiful view of the pool and patio.

The moss pleated silk linens pull nature’s woodland landscape beauty onto the hardscape as well, and the apricot autumnal florals are displayed in vintage green glass bud vases tied with a sweet silk ribbon.

Fall Foliage Focalpoint

Fall Foliage Focalpoint

The tablecard table is filled with a dramatic and seasonal profusion of maple leaves, berry, mossy branches and more bursting out of a silver leafed urn.

The tabletop is covered in moss for a woodsy nod to the garden surrounding us, and cards are calligraphied onto chartreuse stock and held in place with a river rock to keep the autumn breeze away…

I often repeat – there is no more intimate, personal setting than an at home wedding.

The setting for cocktails is the splendid family home’s English Garden, which certainly could not be more…

and more.

The perfect start to a memorable evening for all.

Beautiful Bridals

This bouquet is so delicious:

Apricot Garden and Spray Roses, Champagne Roses, soft white Snowberry, Apricot and Green Hypericum Berry, Queen Anne’s Lace, Scabiosa Pods and more.

The ladies are all wearing the most gorgeous Elise Bergman moss green silk dresses – and these are the perfect punch of soft fall tones to accessorize the bridal party.

Going to the Chapel…

Going to the Chapel...

Gorgeous day for a wedding today.

Christ Church is Lake Forest is so magnificent – and the bright blue sky and sparkling sun is the icing on the cake.

I love autumn…the crisp fall air, the turning leaves, the textured berries and branches.

Wait till you see all of the gorgeous florals…
