We adored creating this autumnal wedding with great fall colors and flowers (and not a pumpkin in sight) at Old Oaks Country Club in Purchase, New York.
The Outdoor Wedding Ceremony
The wedding ceremony was held outside on The Living Room Terrace, where night fell just in time for the lanterns to light up the aisle.
Hanging candles and uplights brought a warmth to the chuppah, with a floral design bursting with foliage and flowers.
Indoor Wedding Reception at Old Oaks Country Club
Inside, the escort card table, centerpieces and flower arrangements were designed in three levels.
The top level used natural leaves and branches in greens and dark reds with very little lighting. The middle level draws the eye first with large colorful blooms surrounded by lighter greens and a lighting design that made it both warm and bright. The lowest level of the centerpieces included dainty blossoms inside glass vases augmented with hanging amaranthus in rich dark pink, brightened by a selection of pillar candles and mercury gold votive candles.

Wedding Decor and Flower Design Details
The oversized ornate wood burning fireplace in the Grand Hall was decorated for the wedding reception with red pillar candles and arrangements of seasonal flowers in dark pinks, reds, greens and more.
The Marble Room’s fireplace was likewise adorned with autumnal flowers and red pillar candles.
Cocktail hour flower details were placed in mercury gold vases with roses, greenery and berries alongside votive candles.
The table decor for the celebration tied in with the deep reds of the flowers and candles and featured dainty embroidery that sparkled in the candlelight.
Thanks to photographer Arnold Brower for capturing the details so lovingly!
