The color palette that Winne & Alex chose for their September wedding at Ashford Estate may be one of my all time favorites! This time of year can be unpredictable when it comes to the weather— will there be a late summer heat wave or will a sudden chill take the air? So what colors do you work with? Winne & Alex found their palette within the seasonal transition, verdant summer greens, dreamy whites, and pinks slipping into coppery autumn gold and deep burgundies.
The couple’s florist, Corinne of Sebesta Design, expertly married late summer with early fall. The bride’s bouquet featured curling summer vines, white lisianthus, and ruffled pink peonies alongside butternut orange roses and ranunculus, oxblood dahlias, and scarlet astilbe. Within the estate’s immaculate barn chapel, twining vines climbed along the rafters and arrangements along the aisle curled elegantly around the chairs set for the ceremony. For the altar, Corinne designed a spectacular mantle piece to complement the bride’s bouquet. It seemed to grow from the very stones of the fireplace, spilling over the edge of the mantle and pooling over the hearthstones.
Perhaps the only thing more striking than the flowers was the bride herself! Winne wore a beautiful lace ballgown that featured a champagne blush lining and stripes of chiffon for a tiered effect. Her hair was styled in romantic loose waves and she paired her look with begonia pink heels and faintly blushing, peach sapphire jewelry! The finishing touch was a chapel length drop veil with delicate floral embroidery covering its train.
