Christopher and I both knew we wanted an outdoor wedding. Having both lived around Stillwater, we fell in love with Cindie Sinclair's old 1800s dairy farm she has turned into a flower farm. We added romance with a vintage flair throughout the wedding and reception. Guests had fun using a black and white photo booth from the traveling photo booth that allowed guests to keep one strip of photos from themselves and paste the other strip with a message in the wedding guest book. Cones made from vintage print paper were made and filled with flower petals to be tossed at the bride and groom as they went down the aisle as husband and wife. From the paper cones, to the flowers, to the tables everything was mix and match, nothing was quite the same.
Vintage silver teapots and creamers served as vases for table floral arrangements, roses in bright peach, pinks and creams were highlighted with blue flowers, white hydrangea, and eucalyptus spray painted silver. Ribbons in silver, white, peach and salmon adorned the wreath in the hair of the flowergirl, along flower arrangements lining the aisle, hanging from chandeliers, trees, and the arbor. Maud Hixson and her Big Band sang out classics such as "Night and Day" and "Fever", tables were enriched with wine classes, silver ornate silverware, peach damask napkins and pin tucked silk beige tablecloths, the pintucks mimicking the pintucks on the bodice of Brooke's flowergirl dress.
Since the groom Christopher is a chef, we supplied guests with four delicate hors d’ouvres and a four course dinner by Lake Elmo Inn. Cigars were offered to the gentlemen with blue match boxes indicating "the perfect match". Lanterns in clear, peach, blues and pinks hung with candles at various levels on the arbor and the vines were growing up the openings of the 3-sided pavilion where the reception was held. All in all, Cindie Sinclair transformed her Camrose Hill farm into a vintage whimsical, midsummer’s evening for us.
I hoped that help give you a better picture of our wedding!
