hudsonwedding-1A few weekends ago I designed my first wedding!hudsonwedding-2The venue was 632 on Hudson in the Village, a dreamy townhouse of 3 floors and a roof patio.hudsonwedding-3The bride’s name was Christine and the groom’s name was Christopher, how perfect.hudsonwedding-4I used about 60 mason jars of varying sizes for the bars, guest tables, buffet and to blend in with the existing decor.hudsonwedding-7To fill the jars: “Amnesia” and “Quicksand” roses to complement the Maid-of-Honor’s dress shade, creamy “Patience” David Austin Roses (with the most heavenly scent), “Mother’s Choice” peonies, white ranunculus, soft dusty miller leaves and tweedia for a little texture.hudsonwedding-5The existing décor and furniture in the space is so eclectic and interesting, including vintage pieces sourced from flea markets in Paris…hudsonwedding-9and the restrooms got a little dressing up too, including a suggestion to add rose petals to the bathtubs.hudsonwedding-6And now my very favorite part: the bridal bouquet.  I love that Christine added a family heirloom charm.hudsonwedding-10The ribbon wrapping matched the satin of the Maid-of-Honor’s dress and one flower girl held a basket of rose petals, the other a pomander of roses and tweedia.hudsonwedding-11The bouquets were wrapped in the silk ribbon and studded with pearl pins.hudsonwedding-12And the antique books and mercury glass votives chosen by the bride lit the setting with a soft glow just as guests arrived to celebrate…hudsonwedding-8
