Floral garden-inspired wedding ideas at the Ridgeland Mansion
Oh hey, sweetheart table *of the year*. SO, so good! And it doesn’t stop there—Faye + Renee‘s spring blooms fill every little nook and cranny (secret garden included!) of Philadelphia’s Ridgeland Mansion. Maria Mack Photography + Nicole of Rabbit Rabbit Crew were all about showing off the historic venue’s lush acres in a vignette just oozing with romance and elegance. From this table to the ceremony arch to the insanely cool cocktail bar, we’ll be coming back to this one for days to come.
The team outfitted their groom in all black + white for a clean contrast to the lush surroundings.
Nicole of Rabbit Rabbit Crew tells us, Florists + event designers Faye + Renee began the day building a stunning overflowing ceremony backdrop using Ridgeland’s very own lattice arch, then matched pieces from their prop collection to accent and create functional additions for Joshua’s Catering’s fruit and cheese display, and Whipped Bake Shop’s French tile-inspired cakes. Whipped’s attention to detail in each dessert is breathtaking; gold leaf and hand painted elements throughout, with the main ceremony cake featuring dehydrated pear slices that were hand-dyed + gold-dusted.
Soft pinks + mauve + draped greenery + dark berries made up the gorgeous florals throughout. Seeeeriously can’t stop talking about them!
Inspired by the natural grace of the mansion, the focus was on soft colors with moody undertones for this styled shoot through each placement and setting. The bride’s wardrobe, BHLDN’s Joplin dress, fit into every scene with the full lace detailing and ever so sweet off the shoulder silhouette creating just the right amount of whimsy to match its romantic train. Stylists from Onlo Beauty and Shimmer & Spice styled a glowing and effortless look that is easily highlighted by the peeks of sunlight and flows with every movement.
This cocktail trailer is a total must for all you Philly brides and grooms. 13th Street Cocktails served up the libations + hand shucked oysters from their mahogany trailer.
The team went with square tables + bistro chairs to keep it modern while still allowing for a vintage garden vibe.
Swooning over all these L. Priori jewels, too.
