Congress Hall in Cape May, NJ is the quintessential place to get married in Cape May. With one of the largest ballrooms (with a GREAT color scheme) and the resort like amenities and rooms, it is easy to understand Congress Hall's reputation. We were just there last night for a wedding, what a treat to spend my Monday evening with my husband and boys in tow to enjoy the carnival on the lawn and dinner at the Rusty Nail! Waaaaaay too much fun for a normal Monday.
Tina Markoe Photography was gracious enough to take some photos of a recent tasting we did at Congress Hall in Cape May. Tina is one of the best photographers we have ever worked with and I always do a happy dance when we get to work together! Side note: Tina's husband, also hysterical. I want them to visit our farm! Also at this event, we saw our dear friend Abbey Malcolm from Abbey Malcolm Press. If you are in Stone Harbor, please check out her adorable storefront, featuring stationary and party goodies!
The tasting event is held a few times a year for upcoming brides and grooms to attend and see the ballroom decked with wedding inspiration and of course, sample some of the impressive menu options from the kitchen. We style each table with a different theme, so it is a great creative outlet for us to try our new designs and showcase new trends. We had these custom lucite towers made for an event at the Borgata Water Club (no glass allowed) and I have loved their versatility. You can do candles on top or a large arrangement and the base arrangement brings the floral down onto the table. Love love love these. And can we talk about these La Tavola linens for a sec. I covet.
The next design was a peach and cream display in our gold compote bowl, featuring mother of pearl roses, snaps, ranunculus, astilbe and hydrangea.
For our vintage lovers, we showcased some pieces from our milk glass collection with purple blooms.
These purple vanda orchids are a favorite!!
Our tall gold vase displays all white phalaenopsis orchids with coral manzanita branches. The turquoise candles echo the wall color perfectly.
To celebrate the Beach Plum Farm to table menu, we filled ceramic berry pints with gardeny blooms set on a vintage table runner.
We look forward to our next tasting at Congress Hall, we already have some ideas brewing. We will be there a few more times this month for some really special weddings, see ya on the road to Cape May flower fans! Much love to our lovely friends Krystina and Meredith for inviting us to bring in the pretty! XOXO
