A wedding at the Gardens at Elm Bank never fails to disappoint, but Lindsey & Gabe’s natural, yet modern wedding was literally one of our most special weddings to plan. While their vision for the wedding was initially “rustic”, they wanted to ensure it was also elegant, timeless, natural, and truly reflected Lindsey & Gabe as a couple.
We created a luxurious garden vibe, filled with intricate marble pieces and gold details, enticing experiences for guests, personal touches (like nods to the couple’s instafamous dog @bodie.blue) and our fav: we coined the 3 P’s: Parasols, Palomas and Pedicabs!
The couple’s penness to bringing in their own personal style, despite what was expected was key- the bride’s fashion sense, the style of their new Brooklyn home filled with marble details and the intricate parts of their home-life they love (like their puppy) were used to turn this “rustic” wedding into a serious soiree. One of our favorite details was mixing marble pieces with natural and modern touches – including marble signage and menus with soft gold letterpress, gold flatware and soft gray candles and greenery, and modern industrial sphere lighting hanging above a mix of wood farm tables.
Plus, the experiences truly kept people guessing. From the moment they arrived, guests were offered pedicabs rides down to the ceremony. They sipped rose under their personal parasols. They were whisked into the secluded secret Italianate Garden for the ceremony, then sipped Palomas and noshed in Wheezies Garden prior to dinner in the tent. The dancing vibe started the moment guests entered the tent and didn’t stop the entire night! The night was topped off with an unexpected surprise – the Cookie Monstah truck! OH, and the bride did a pretty sweet stage dive at the end. 😉
