Romantic & intimate outdoor ceremony

The couple had a romantic and intimate wedding ceremony with friends and family at the Clermont Historic Site. From the bride:

"Our ceremony was co-created with our officiant, a family friend, and centered on the importance of friendship to a marriage. We engaged our guests in our ceremony by conducting a ring warming ceremony to bless our union and impart their wishes and hopes for our future into our custom rings. We wrote our own set of vows and promises to uphold to one another emphasizing patience, growth, compassion, and fun. We made our pledge under a canopy of autumn foliage that fell in beautiful yellow streams as the wind blew."

Organic reception table decor

Rentals were from Events Unlimited, with design by Kateri Jude. From the bride:

"Our neutral palette was carefully chosen to allow the beauty of peak fall foliage to sing as our backdrop and our decor combined the ornate details of the period of the home with minimalist, organic shapes and textures. Small details like the lion statues at the entrance of our venue were mimicked in our invites, my vintage earrings, and even the syrup cruet for our cake. Our florals were locally sourced and chosen for their freeform shapes and encased in moss, as if these flowers had been slowly growing from the ruins and grounds of the estate. Pears and figs adorned our tables and ceremony pieces to pay homage to the stunning autumnal landscape by using local, seasonal items to add a pop of color while still maintaining our neutral scheme."
