The first time Melanie and I chatted, it was immediately apparent she was passionate about her flowers and wanted them to be that finishing touch to tie in all the decor details at her wedding. I loved all the classic white and gold detailing for the arrangements and was so grateful to the flower gods who bestowed on me, despite being so late in the season, gorgeous Anemones and her favourite, green and white Parrot Tulips. Bride and bridal bouquet, were absolute stunners!!!!
The Mill itself was gussied up like no wedding I'd seen there before. Classic vineyard chairs, French settees and tufted ottomans were intermixed with glossy white, contemporary bar tables and stools. The Millrace Room and Waterfall Courtyard were transformed into casual yet elegant spaces where guests could enjoy the indoor and outdoor areas of this incredibly unique building. Where else can you celebrate a wedding, under the stars, with the backdrop of a historic building that includes , no less than, a waterfall, a rambling creek, a pond, a stone courtyard, a spot for a bonfire and of course, amazing indoor and outdoor art installations and sculpture??!!!! Call me biased, but the Mill was in fine form on that perfect, summer evening.
Since Mel and Rob exchanged their wedding vows on the grass beside the Annex Courtyard, I got to witness the beautiful ceremony from the second floor view of my studio. It was such a gorgeous, timeless wedding that promises to go down as one of my favourites...ever.
A huge thank you to Stacey Kinkaid Photography for her incredible talent and generosity, these images are simply stunning.
