Lovely Lanterns at Magnificent Meadowbrook
If you're a Michigander than Meadowbrook needs no introduction! We're 'over the moon' about our "Magnificent Meadowbrook" wedding this past weekend! Meadowbrook Hall & Gardens, the original Dodge Family Mansion in Rochester, Michigan was the venue for our amazing bride Kristy!
Over a year of carefully planned details and selections came to life in a truly spectacular display of historic nostalgia. We again were so thrilled to collaborate with Misty Trompeter of Bells & Bliss (www.bellsandbliss.com) to create a gorgeous palette of soft butter yellow, pale pink and citrus green
The continuing theme throughout the decor was the vintage style lanterns which glowed with a warm presence throughout the night. Inside the Great Hall, Lanterns flickered around the place cards and family photos. Eclectic lanterns flickering along the walkway guided guests as well as giant lanterns adorned with lush garden roses marked the aisle way for the bridal party.
In side the tent lanterns continued on the oblong guests tables for continuous romantic light throughout dinner and into the dancing hour. A reproduction saloon style bar was set and which really added that special touch to keep the decor in the true period.
More amazing weddings to come!
