There are few styles I love more than the classic elegance of today’s English inspired country wedding from Kirsten Smith Photography! Sarah and Josh were married on the grounds of Stone Manor Country Club, an eighteenth century manor house in Maryland that could not have been more romantic. Their classic wedding details were beautifully suited to the gracious style of the historic stone manor, from Sarah’s sweet lace dress to the natural white and green florals. Local florist, Sweet Blossoms, put together incredible, lush bouquets for Sarah and her maids with a romantic combination of creamy ivory dahlias and roses accented with fiddlehead ferns and rich pops of merlot ranunculus blooms.
The beautiful autumn grounds of the manor inspired the sweet ceremony decor – a pair of vintage farmhouse doors draped with a garland of fresh greenery could not have made for a lovelier backdrop. Guests dined and danced in the manor’s garden canopy, which had been transformed with sweet woodland details! Rounds of local trees served as the bases for ivory and green centerpieces surrounded by votive candles and moss. Guests found their tables with DIY table numbers made of wine bottles wrapped in twine, and their seat with petite potted succulent escort cards with a sweet thank you banner bearing a laser cut flower. The incredible cake display was styled to resemble a rustic elegant farmers market, with vintage wooden crates bearing cupcakes and fruit tarts made by the Mother of the Bride, but the centerpiece was a grand layer cake made by a friend of the couple!
