all the pretty horses...

whether spending a day at the races or a day at the stables, horses evoke a striking natural beauty that impacts the atmosphere, and brings back memories from childhood. we chose to set up a wedding atmosphere in the stables that was casual, rustic, intimate, heartfelt and yet, over-the-top! we broke the barrier vintage rustic chic by using super lush garden flowers, vintage letterpressed paper products, a precious assortment of cakes, fancy intricate hand calligraphy, a couture gown, and quirky luxe gold accents! every detail was nailed!

dinner table scape:
Gold trophy vases packed with blooms in shades of reds and pinks included garden roses, peony, amaryllis, tulips, anemone, and jasmine. Letterpressed menus were regal with a pale pink wreath encircling a golden horse and horseshoe. Place cards were eclectic, a mix of papers paired with different inks made everyones' table setting unique.

escort card table:
Miniature hand-made awards with the guests' name and table number scrolled in calligraphy were displayed on a bed of red carnations.

cake table:
A decadent assortment of single tier cakes embellished with award-winning sugar ribbons, frilly butter cream flowers, and detailed trimming set upon vintage milkglass pedestals surrounding a colossal trophy packed with fresh blooms in the horse arena. A feast for the eyes, indeed.
