The Elegant Cottage Wedding Of Hillary And Keith
The lordly estate of Longue Vue House and Gardens shines with nature´s most beautiful colors, ready for the cottage wedding of Hillary and Keith.
At the end of a tree-lined alley we round a graceful fountain that welcomes us spouting. We pass by and explore the mansion and its gardens. However, we´ll come back. For the highlight of the day.
In the rooms upstairs last preparations are made for the bride. Her Oscar de la Renta dress fits like a second skin made of lace and tulle, delightfully clinging to her body. Her shoe straps embrace her ankles and valuable jewelry sparkles here and there.
Hillary floats down the stairs to the hall, her big moment is almost here. The dinner tables in the back yard are decorated with magnificent center pieces by florist Kelly Lenard and candles already spread some romantic atmosphere. The party may start!
But fist we go back to back to the driveway which magically turned into a gorgeous ceremony location. In the meantime, the event stylists and wedding planner of Angle Events prepared an unforgettable wedding atmosphere with a flower bristled ceremony arch and a circular seating plan around the fountain
And just in case anyone´s memories start to fade some day there´s photographer Greer Gattuso who experienced this amazing country wedding and eternalized it on wonderful pictures…
