Autumn Splendor at The Succop Conservancy
A stunning celebration for these two lovely people! Mikalea and Bill got married at the Succop Conservancy in Butler, Pennsylvania. They had a big outdoor wedding filled with a fun crowd of family and friends. As you approach through a winding private drive, the trees reveal a venue that has an organic elegance with a beautiful lake surrounded by trees. The grounds have the most gorgeous older trees which are all labeled with their specific species, giving it a charming Old World feel. The design plan was bold with a mix of light and dark hues and a color pallet that consisted of deep marsala mixed with dusty blues, peach, and amber accents. The falling leaves of autumn helped to enrich the color palette. The flowers were gorgeous! We absolutely loved how they turned out. Outside the historic home where the ceremony took place, red hanging amaranthus were dripping out of the bouquets and other floral arrangements. Mini flower arrangements lined the aisle with marsala fabric draping over the archway. After the “I do”s, cookies and cocktails were served inside the house as guest mingled around one of the many fireplaces. Soon after the cocktails the reception began. Guests found their seats easily with our giant antique gold leaf framed seating chart. We designed a mix of two centerpiece styles to adorn the dinner tables. We created a wood box centerpiece and a three piece vase collection. The rich color pallet created a nice contrast to the crisp white linens. We mixed candle light and made custom wooden table numbers hand painted in white and gold leaf to complement the wooden box centerpiece. Guests enjoyed drinks and a cigar bar, a special surprise from the bride to the groom! After dinner the dancing began and went on into the night. What a beautiful Sunday wedding!
This laid back couple rolled with the spotty rain throughout the day. As we came back at the end of the day to tear down we could tell that everyone really had a great time. With a cozy atmosphere under the enclosed pavillion, the hanging lights and candle light made for an incredible ambiance.
Special thanks to the staff at the Succop Conservancy.
