The Darby House / Laura & Ben
Outdoors, bright white, slate blue, pop pink & orange flowers
Laura and Ben had the perfect day. The ceremony was held at the beautiful St. Brigid of Kildare. The florals were natural and bright which contrasted the slate blue linens. The guests loved the reception view of The Darby House in the summer.
As I worked with Laura she explained exactly what she wanted for her big day. She loved bright white and slate blue for her colors. We incorporated slate blue throughout the day in our linens and fabrics. Her bridesmaids wore dresses in varying shades of blue.
State and Arrow was the perfect fit for Laura and Ben’s day because of their loose and organic style. We wanted her florals to add dimension to the day in shades of pink and orange. The bouquets were gorgeous with bright pink peonies and greenery.
When I first met with Laura and Ben, they shared with me how much they love the outdoors. Laura’s family grew up outside, and when she met Ben, he fit right into the fishing and hiking family outings. The Darby House was the perfect venue for the reception with the acres of rolling hills and outdoor patio space overlooking the river. This allowed them to have both an indoor and outdoor wedding. Throughout the night there were always guests on the patio chatting, drinking, and enjoying the lovely view.
We had three centerpieces for the tables that popped in the natural light of The Darby House. The napkins were slate blue to pull in a contrast. I loved the Tuscan Table; working with State and Arrow we uniquely designed a deconstructed version of the other centerpieces. With small bud bases and florals, we surrounded Laura’s bouquet in the middle of the table.
It’s All In The Details
We carefully crafted and placed every detail of the night. There was greenery woven throughout all the details of the day. You’re Invited designed elegant and simple paper goods with greenery: welcome sign, bar signs, cookie bags, and menu. We brought this detail to life by placing fresh greenery throughout the escort card table.
The guests ate cookies, posed in the photo booth, and danced the night away as Platinum Music kept the energy high.
Thank you to all of our incredible vendors, and congratulations to Laura & Ben!
