Classic Manor House Wedding Inspo + a Pop of Pantone’s Greenery

February 27, 2017

Oh-my-gorgeous do we have some seriously stunning wedding inspo for you today. When this beauty of a gallery arrived in our inbox, we spent a solid hour oohing and ahhing over every elegant detail. This palette of classic neutrals + a pop of Pantone’s color of the year (greenery) has us ready to plan all the historic manor house weddings!

From Rachel of Rachel Kendall Events: The “Elegant Neutral Takeover” styled shoot was inspired by driving down the tree-lined entranceway into Great Oak Manor, on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Once you get a view of the manor house, you can immediately picture this classic wedding scene: the most elegant bride and groom share their first kiss after saying, “I do.” The celebration continues as the guests take their table assignments and a welcome glass of Crow Vineyard’s Sparkling Vidal. They head into the reception tent adorned in neutral accents of ivory, white, and gold, designed by Rachel Kendall Events, with rentals provided by Eastern Shore Tents & Events. With the floral talents of Flora Boh, Pantone’s color of the year – greenery – was incorporated into the night with an elevated botanical centerpiece of fern and lush greenery accented by classic white lilies and garden roses. The artful menus on the plates, designed by Little Bit Heart, cause anticipatory excitement in the guests for what is to come. The night continues as the Bride (hair & make-up by Serena Rose Styles, wearing BridesideEmma Katzka Bridal accessories, and Mangan Jewelers rings) and the Groom, (dressed in The Black Tux with his new Mangan Jewelers ring) overlook the Chesapeake Bay sunset. The whole night is captured perfectly for the couple to remember by the talents of Karlin Villondo Photography.
