Ridley Creek Wedding Florist : Michele & Matt at the Hunting Hill Mansion

The Hunting Hill Mansion in Ridley Creek State Park is a hidden gem of secluded romance.  High ceilings, stone walls and surrounding forest makes this venue something out of a fairy tale.  We were ecstatic to be working with Michele and Matt as they planned their wedding here, especially since the couple's style truly enhanced the setting they were in.

Love Me Do Photography thrilled us with these images - the amount of detail they are able to capture, along with their artistic style makes it feel like Christmas every time we have some of their files in our inbox.  


Michele's bouquet was filled to the max with every shade of "fall" color that could fit- yellow roses, blush dahlias, green stems of eucalyptus and mustard amaranth were just a few that made up this floral kaleidescope. 

Michele's bridesmaids stunned in their lace gowns, carrying smaller versions of the bridal bouquet.

With such an eclectic mix of florals going on in Michele's bouquet, it was nice to take a simpler approach for the flower girl crowns.  We threaded together stems of eucalyptus, finished off with long ivory ribbon tails. 

This bout is so much fun!  We love mixing it up for the guys, and this colorful bout for Matt had a great mix of the color scheme seen throughout the day.

We brought the outside in for the couple's ceremony, absolutely stuffing this fireplace with branches of bittersweet.  Bittersweet vines made up a seasonal wreath to hang above the mantle, and layers of candles served as the perfect finishing touch.

Guests were welcomed into the reception space with our pretty card holder.  Our brass candlestick served as a floral stand for this mix of yellow roses, thistle and berries - we love re-purposing items from our rental inventory for a fresh look.

The deep windowsills of the Hunting Hill Mansion serve as a great opportunity to add decor, really emcompassing the entire room with the couple's theme.

Michele settled on two different style centerpieces for the reception space.  Pictured above is a mix of our brass candlesticks topped with floral arrangements, surrounded by gold mercury votives. 

To the right you'll get a better look at the gray textured table linen and deep gold napkin.  These were great color choices for a fall wedding, and really made the centerpieces pop.

The second centerpiece style was a gold acrylic compote filled with a gorgeous arrangement of blush dahlias and spray roses, pink stock, berries, yellow roses and eucalyptus. 

We placed a compote arrangement at Michele and Matt's sweetheart table, along with gold mercury votives and smilax vines to create a romantic atmosphere for their first meal as a married couple.  

Simply stunning!  The decorative frosting on this wedding cake is unbelievable!  It obviously didn't need too much from us, but we added some color with yellow rose heads and pink dahlias.

Congratulations, Michele & Matt!  Thank you for letting us have so much creative fun on your wedding day!
