Allison & Edwin // Fall Mansion Inn Wedding

Party in the barn…

Allison and Edwin chose the Mansion Inn for their wedding day. Nuptials in the garden and cocktails on the porch, and then they were off to the rustic barn on the property for the reception. Shannon Whitney introduced me to Allison almost 8 months before the wedding. After our first meeting, I knew why Shannon brought her to me. She needed someone to help her with her vision, and I was excited to work with Allison’s ideas.

The design…

The most important thing on Allison’s list was candles: on the table and hanging with lights. Because they are not allowed in the barn, we had to make some revisions, but we still got the look just right. the flowers were warm and rich in tone, and I used lots of berries and twigs for the design. The tables were draped in hemp linen and spun burlap overlays, and I added hemstitch linen napkins, too, for that at home feel. I also used a chair that is rarely used because we don’t have a huge amount of them. They are a mahogany ball room chair, perfect for this event.

In the center of the barn, we strung barcelona lights and then wrapped layers of grapevine with hanging votive holders that we used faux candles in.

As it turns out, it was chilly on the wedding day, but Shannon Whitney and I were on it. The barn is not heated, but it was for this event.

Thank you…

Shannon Whitney, thank you for introducing me to this very fun client. Heather Bohm-Tallman thanks for the great pics! Lori from the Mansion Inn could not have been more helpful and willing to make sure our bride was thrilled.  DJ Gregg Frasier got the guests’ groove on. Hair was done by Timeless Updos, and make up by Jen from True Grace.  Special thanks to Cody on my team for helping me set this one up, and, of course, the boys at CPRC.

Congratulations Allison & Edwin!
