Black and white and classic all over: a spring wedding at Springfield Country Club

Amanda and Matt’s wedding was pushed from 2020 to 2021, as so many of the pandemic weddings were, and actually moved locations as well! So many changes and adaptations and they pulled it off – a gorgeous ceremony and reception at the perfect time of year at Springfield Country Club.

The outdoor ceremony space at Springfield Country Club is really beautiful – tucked in a treelined nook up against a pretty pond – but it was also a couple holes away from the reception area and parking lot! Luckily the nice event folks at the Club loaned us a golf cart so we could get the flowers out to the arch to create this installation.

I love how the pink rhododendrons are framing Amanda in this picture! Her bouquet was a mix of me-grown June blooms (spirea, foliages, ranunculus, and some wild honeysuckle) and white roses. The bridal veil spirea – which is good as a cut flower for about 1 week a year – was perfectly timed for this wedding!

The reception space at Springfield Country Club is really light and airy and the black lanterns and foliage wreaths looked fantastic. We made these lantern surrounds like we would make holiday wreaths – by creating bundles of foliage and flowers and wiring them on round frames. This wedding was 100% foam free.

Amanda’s bridesmaid bouquets were similar to hers, but a little simpler and a little smaller, and the spirea showed up in their bouquets as well.

Matt and his groomsmen’s boutonnieres complemented Amanda’s bouquet.

Congratulations to the happy couple! The wedding was gorgeous, but now for the best part: your marriage!

Purples and pinks and the Seven Sisters in the background: a fall wedding in Amherst

We loved the flowers and received so many compliments from our guests!

Sophie and Dane got married in Sophie’s grandmother’s backyard, which sounds sweet, right? And when Grandma’s backyard abuts the Holyoke Range state park, you get a view for days – a perfect backdrop for their family and friend-filled wedding. Something doubly sweet: Sophie’s parents were married in that same backyard!

This wedding is a perfect example of a fall wedding with almost 100% seasonal blooms, but whose colors were anything but “seasonal.” September on my farm is full of all the colors, and I was thrilled that Sophie wanted purples and pinks and whites – I had plenty!
