The Keith Edson Mansion at Phillippi Estate Park is a beautiful setting for a wedding. The grounds make it easy to transition from ceremony to reception at one location. This couple chose a bamboo arch under the oak trees to frame them as they exchanged their vows. Large bamboo pots filled with palm fronds, river cane and purple orchids at the back of the aisle welcomed guests to the ceremony setting.
The bride walked the aisle carrying a hand tied bouquet of ivory David Austin Patients Roses. Her attendants, dressed in lapis purple, carried a garden mix of green hydrangea, lavender roses, waxflower and purple lisianthus.
In keeping with the purple, green and aqua color scheme, tables were covered in dark purple linens with touches of aqua. Flowers by Fudgie designers on site placed tall silver vases brimming with trailing seeded eucalyptus and an abundance of purple hydrangea with curly willow rising from the center of the vase on the tables. Small green dendrobium orchid florets were attached to the curly willow to add a touch of color. The couple chose origami ornaments placed at each place setting as wedding favors. The llama, symbolizing responsibility and strength and the crane, which stands for long life, fidelity and happiness. It’s always fun to see something different and thoughtful for the favors.
The staff at Mattison’s handled all aspects of catering from appetizers to dinner with expertise and precision. Dancing on the patio under the stars was the perfect way to end a memorable day.
