This bright, colorful styled shoot comes to us from Bianca of RSVP by B Wedding Coordination, based in Poughkeepsie, NY!n  Here’s Bianca to tell us more:

Just up the hill on the banks of iconic Hudson river stands a historical treasure. A 1876 French Chateau, formally the gatehouse of the sprawling Vanderbilt Mansion. She sits just beyond the properties southern border but her floor to ceiling doors and windows make the transition between indoor and the outdoors appear seamless. She was added to the National register of Historic Places in 1993 and underwent a full historic restoration in early 2016.

See more after the cut!

On a sunlit summer afternoon this was the venue that inspired this pop up wedding. Every attention to detail well thought out in a vendors collaboration to compliment the historical integrity of a by gone era yet evoke a modern twist. Estate jewelry from the period was chosen to compliment a beautiful lace gown and birdcage veil. The bride’s hair and makeup perfectly styled make her appearance timeless and her beauty magnified. Upstairs her groom prepares, his image reflected in a antique revival mirror in the south bedroom. Downstairs the dining room is set for an intimate affair.

Hues of gold and orange bring life to the rustic tabletop in a room of neutral linen drapery and restored plaster walls. Elaborate icing on their wedding cake is patterned the floral pattern that adorns the couple’s hand selected wedding invitations. Loden green chargers and gold napkins hold menu cards, each adorned with a single cinnamon color rose bloom. A assortment of anemones, dahlia, rhonaculas and roses nestled is shades and textures of green adorned with pearls and feathers.

The flowers compliment the custom invitations making them the perfect bouquet and centerpiece. Floor to ceiling french doors open onto the covered porch again blurring the lines on indoor and outdoor space. This historical gem did not disappoint as her loving restoration was evident and careful consideration kept her true to the original vision for her over 140 years ago.
