Elegant + Enchanted

This weekend I’ll be attending Ms. See Jane’s shower and bachelorette party, so I’ve got weddings on my mind…leave it to Martha Stewart to publish the wedding of my dreams! I’m absolutely enchanted with this Great Gatsby inspired Bridgehampton wedding. I’ve always dreamt of a small wedding under a tent in the middle of an orchard, with vintage china and cascading blooms…just like this.  
To create the dreamy setting, every detail was thoughtfully crafted and lovingly designed so it felt as if it had been on the property for decades.
English parasols and peacock covered fans helped guests fend off the summer heat.
A rustic table filled with artisanal cheeses, grapes, vegetables, and baguettes was set up for cocktail hour. The couple wanted guests to feel like they were strolling through the countryside and suddenly discovered an amazing market.  Liquor was poured in to decanters found at Williams Sonoma.
My Favorite detail - A faux white peacock tucked into the peak of the tent, along with overflowing flowers and greenery.  Mercury glass vessels overflowed with white peonies and fragrant geranium leaf covered long tables.
Table numbers and menus, painted by Bernard Maisner,were nestled amongst arrangements of white peonies, 'Patience' roses, passion vine, ferns, 'Garden Snow' spray roses, and English lavender.  Notice the mix-and-match china and gold rim glasses....isn't this what wedding dreams are made of?

Wishing you an extraordinarily enchanted weekend!
