Angela and DJ got married in Franklin, CT at DJ’s stepdad’s commercial nursery, The Plant Group, a huge growing operation with fields of flowering plants surrounding several enormous greenhouses. How cool is that? To clear out a couple of greenhouses and transform them into a party. We took our cues from the angles of the greenhouses, the play of metal against glass and from the color-blocked fields of flowers. We were fortunate to work with Jag Studios, who did an incredible job capturing the love and the pretty.
The purple suit is only one of the reasons I love Angela & DJ:
They got married on the property in front of a stand of trees where they grow all manner of shade plants. We used springerii fern, willow, roses and hanging bubble vases over our iron gazebo to create a lush frame for their ceremony.
Now remember, these are fully operational, busy greenhouses. When we visited the first time, they were filled with plants, machines, watering systems, people… When I came back to set up, they were completely empty. and HUGE. For the cocktail hour, Sarah from True Event created this fantastic lounge. We used plants from the property to create blocks of color around the perimeter of the room.
For the tables in the dinner greenhouse, I found these fantastic deco vases in four shapes – mirror/glass combinations that reflect the glass and metal of the greenhouses, and we continued the color-blocking along the long banquet tables with monofloral designs. We used kiwi vine to connect each vase along the table, creating continuity and acting as a foil to all of the crisp lines and angles. On the square tables, a simple vase of crisp autumn foliage provided height in the room. The room was gorgeous during the day:
But even more stunning at night:
And what’s really exciting is that their wedding is a featured editiorial in the current issue of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style New England Magazine! The magazine is luxurious and they look fantastic in print!
