Turn of the century-themed wedding at Wisteriahurst

Jessica and Mike wanted a turn of the century themed wedding, and what better location than Wisteriahurst, the historic mansion and cultural center in Holyoke. After the ceremony they and their guests traveled to the Roosevelt Room at Union Station in Northampton – more of the turn-of-the-century theme as it’s the great hall of the railway station in Northampton, built right before 1900.

I love how dark and moody this picture of Jessica and Mike’s wedding party looks. The darker pictures that Brian Marsh Photography took of the couple and their guests remind me of a John Singer Sargeant painting. So gorgeous!

bridal bouquet
Jessica’s bouquet had a dark and moody vibe – with succulents and lots of texture. I used echeveria (hens and chicks) I grow here at the farm, heirloom chrysanthemums, roses, scabiosa black knight, lisanthus, dusty miller, and a variety of foliage and grasses for texture.
bride and bridesmaids
Bridesmaid bouquets were complementary to Jessica’s and I love the way the dark pops of color look with their navy dresses.
All the flowers, just for fun! These flowers exemplify fall weddings to me – I spy dahlias, chrysanthemums, and amaranthus along with the roses, lisianthus, and succulents. Fall is really the perfect time of year to get married in New England!
boutonniere on groom
Mike’s boutonniere (as well as his groomsmen’s) featured a succulent, of course.
flowers in urn
The ceremony space was flanked by 2 large arrangements that fit the space and theme perfectly. Shapes and colors were inspired by Jessica’s bouquet.

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