One of the six bridesmaid bouquets from Sunday's wedding. I tagged along with Mary, carried a few boxes inside the venue, and placed a few of the centerpieces on the tables. It's always fun to watch a wedding and reception take shape in front of you, seeing the caterers set the tables in stages, and of course, setting up the flowers. I also 'petaled' a couple dozen roses for use on the mantels, but I don't want to overstate my duties, lol. I was there basically to take some pics of the venue and the table settings for Mary's book and perhaps website. More to come in the following days. My camera was, of course, acting up, so it's taking some time to sort through what I have.
The grounds of the venue, Eolia Mansion at Harkness Memorial State Park, had some beautiful plantings. These two photos show planters full of gorgeous Coleus. Each variety was placed perfectly to lead your eye from one color to the next and the next. Here's a link with a bit more information on this historic home. I'll have several more photos of the grounds and the reception set-up in the next few days.
