Walking in the Rose Garden at Phipps is just like going into Burnett’s The Secret Garden. We were first greeted by fragrant, delicate pink and white Astilbe, Hostas, and other lush greens. White garden chairs were set up in the center of the Rose Garden for the ceremony.
A wreath of flowers circled around a candle-lit Hurricane globe, greeting guests as they retrieved their place cards for dinner.
Our bride, Courtney, and her bridesmaids carried lush bouquets of ivory roses and peonies.
The romantic centerpieces carried forth the same lush tones with roses, hydrangea, gypsy dianthus, peonies and flowing greens.
The cake was simply decorated, light pink spray roses adding a breath of color, and white peonies softening the traditional white form.
We were enchanted to be a part of our bride’s special day! In spite of the Kenny Chesney concert, the Journey/ Def Leppard concert and high humidity with threatening rain, a grand time was had by all who were part of Courtney and Steve’s beautiful day.
