Their Story

“I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, with sweet musk-roses and with eglantine.”

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

William Shakespeare

A charming design of rustic and gardenesque influence set in the perfect backdrop of Bridgeport Art Center’s Skyline Loft.   We loved the garden blooms of pink lisianthus, brunia, star of bethlehem, blue thistle, purple succulents, hydrangeas and lady’s mantel,   aaahhhhh a summer romance. 

Guests entered to a lounge seating of suspended lanterns with cascading florals inter twined with firefly lights.   Hand crafted wooden bookshelves displayed family pictures with floral accents, a walk down memory lane admired by all.  A placecard clipped to natural willows and twine was just the beginning of the experience.

As guests entered the dining room farm tables for families, dimensional square and round tables filled the space with elegance yet embraced the continued romance of a midsummer night’s dream. 

Round tables were set with Trio of faded mercury candlestick with pillar candles.  Floral of white hydrangeas, pink lisanthus, blue thistle, dusty miller, purple allium, bullets purple allium, brunia, star of Bethlehem, ladies mantel, purple succulents, peonies and queen anne’s lace danced with grace.

Square tables were set withl tall Gold vintage Candelabra topped with lush floral.  At the base was trio of gold candlestick with votive candles sparkled like stars in the sky

Farm tables were adorned with burlap runners and Hurricane glass with burlap trim and reindeer moss and curled willows, pillar candles and queen ann lace.  Satellite of peekaboo mercury hurricane glass  were filled with blue thistle, lady mantle, white hydrangeas, green succulent, queen ann lace, dusty miller, purple allium and bullet purple allium.

The bridal party and family tables were staged with eclectic glass ware in clear, white, purple and green with purple succulents, peonies, thistle, purple allium, star of Bethlehem, curly willows and floating candles was an amazing layer to the design.

Stylish and Elegant with insane attention to details, what a magical night for our bride and groom.
