A Mansion of bold colors

From Lindsay Whiting Photography: I came across this venue a few years ago and fell in love with it. This beautiful historic mansion has so much color and detail! This is what makes it so unique but I also think this venue can be intimidating to a lot of brides because of its strong colors. There are three main small gathering rooms on the main level. They are red, yellow and light blue. We wanted to showcase this venue and pick florals that made these colors pop. The other vendors and I agreed on an elegant pastel theme. There is a lot of color and I think it all tied together beautifully.
