Alder Manor wedding: Tara + Paul

Categories   Real Weddings

all white peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, scabiosa blooms and pods wedding bouquet

Alder Manor is the type of place you book asap if Victorian architectural details make you swoon and your heart flutters in vintage shops. It was the spot for Tara + Paul since she’s the type that makes it a point to shop flea markets in every state and country she visits. In keeping with a vintage romantic theme for their wedding, there really could not have been a venue with more character, history, and perfectly imperfect details than Alder Manor. Plus, there really could not have been a better photographer than Dan O’ Day to capture the melancholy beauty of it all.

In addition to Tara’s bouquet of peonies, garden roses, ranunculus, and scabiosa blooms and pods, she pinned her late grandmother’s pendant onto the ribbon of the bouquet.
