I set to work on Sarah and Nico’s Blue Hill at Stone Barns marriage ceremony in 2019. Sadly, COVID were given in the way in which, so that they had a micro marriage ceremony in her mum or dad’s yard on their authentic date and postponed the birthday celebration to the next yr. Who would have recognized we’d wish to reschedule some other yr forward? All over that point they have been blessed with an attractive child daughter. It was once with nice pleasure that everybody got here in combination in June 2022 to have a good time their marriage and the most recent addition to the circle of relatives!
Sarah and Nico had regarded as having some type of rite, however in spite of everything we determined to move directly within the cocktail reception adopted by way of dinner and dancing! Earlier than visitors arrived, we had Sarah and Nico take images round Blue Hill at Stone Barns. They have been additionally joined by way of their bridesmaids and groomsmen (a few of which might now not attend the micro marriage ceremony). Circle of relatives portraits ended with child Phoebe becoming a member of and so they had a beautiful time within the Dooryard Lawn. Sarah’s bouquet was once composed of coral purple antic lawn roses, coral appeal peonies, blush lawn roses, spray lawn roses, darkish purple ranunculus and blue nigella.
Visitors arrived on the vegetable lawn facet of the eating place. They have been greeted by way of a solo violinist from Hank Lane and a tray of refreshing beverage choices. For his or her signature cocktails, they selected Pea’s Knees (a play on Bee’s Knees with pea, gin, fermented honey) and Strawberry Fields (chamomile tequila, strawberry, ginger). For hors d’oeuvres we had asparagus burgers, polenta fries and pastrami marmalade, donko shiitake donuts, harukei turnip and poppy seeds, farm potato bites, brassica and walnut tart, celeriac and tilefish ceviche and greens from the farm. A trio of keys, bass and sax performed within the eating place, and the violinist joined them later. On their invitation (which had long past out in 2019!) we had a sheep’s head peeking out at the envelope. This was once introduced again for the escort card envelopes. It gave me nice excitement to set them up at the beautiful farm desk and spot the entire herd of very critical taking a look sheep staring again at me. We introduced Sarah, Nico and Phoebe during the kitchen sooner than they joined their visitors at cocktail.
After cocktails, visitors have been invited during the courtyard alongside a lantern coated trail to dinner within the higher Hayloft.

We had complete preparations of lush peonies, lawn roses, spray roses, snap dragon and mini lilies at the bar, main easy methods to dinner and at the silo foyer desk. Whilst visitors have been upstairs at dinner, we repurposed cocktail florals to the dancing house for later. I at all times like reusing florals when conceivable.
Lots of the visitors have been seated at spherical tables, however we created a protracted desk for the pinnacle desk stuffed with juicy colourful blooms and faded blue tapers enclosed in glass sun shades. At the back of the pinnacle desk at the windowsill Poppies and Posies created a lush set up of colourful grass inexperienced salomon seal and geranium with lawn roses in quite a lot of purple and blush hues, coral appeal peonies, tulips and blue delphinium.

We ended with Sarah and Nico chopping their marriage ceremony cake, giving a thanks speech and alluring their visitors downstairs for cake and dancing.
The mummy of the bride sought after to make the decrease Haybarn extra festive with fairy lighting fixtures and Pegasus did a super process growing 2 lengthy partitions of fairy lighting fixtures alongside the edges of the room and striking a drape of lighting fixtures over the dance flooring.
