When Edith Wharton designed her summer cottage in the Berkshires, we’re pretty sure she figured couples would use it for their weddings one day…it’s simply a spectacular place to get married!
While the Berkshires is home to many beautiful wedding venues, there are few that truly measure up to Wheatleigh. Alexandra and Jeremy chose this stunning location for their wedding, and we were thrilled that they included us.
That is why we are so excited to announce our partnership with AFR Event Furnishings! Their versatile collections will transform any space creating an experience your guests will not soon forget! From lounge groupings, tables, bar set-ups, outdoor furniture, and so much more, their diverse inventory is sure to please everyone from the traditionalist to those seeking a more modern design.
We have been seeing lanterns pop up everywhere lately and we admit it's a trend we love! Gone are the days of utilitarian purposes only, with so many styles and sizes, they offer an esthetically pleasing quality to any decor. Beachy, modern, industrial, rustic, romantic, and bohemian themes are all equally enhanced with the addition of lanterns.
Here in the Berkshires, we see more than our fair share of destination weddings. Whether you are coming for the majestic mountain views, the historic estates, or one of our many rustic barns, your guest are sure to find delight in the breathtaking scenery and slower pace that make our quaint little towns a respite from the high energy of city life. There's no sweeter way to introduce them to the area and welcome them to your wedding than with a basket filled with local and personal favorites.
One of the wedding trends we have been seeing a lot of lately, is the move towards a monochromatic color palette. Whether it's an all-white scheme or varying shades in the same bold hue, punch up your look with texture!
Table numbers are a necessity if you are planning to assign your guests a seat. Not only will it cut down on your guests asking you or your wedding planner where they need to go, it is also helpful for your caterer and waitstaff in those instances of dietary restrictions. Thankfully, since there are relatively few of them, they are easy to create even for the novice crafter!
There is no shortage of options when it comes to seating charts.
While big, beautiful blooms will never go out of style, we are seeing more brides opt for a green approach. Generally considered "filler flowers", these greens are showing out in a big way all the while being more budget friendly than their colorful counterparts.
