C.V. Rich Mansion-Wedding Flowers-Erica and Seamus


Erica and Seamus’ ceremony and reception took place at CV Rich Mansion in White Plains, New York. The mansion’s large ballroom played host to both the ceremony and the reception. Numerous other rooms allow the guests to mingle both during the cocktail hour and during the reception. The spaciousness of this venue allows guest to be comfortable with their own preferences for dancing, listening to music or quiet conversation.

Erica wanted the personal flowers to reflect her Scottish heritage so the bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages all contained heather, a flower common in Scotland.  It so happens that the term Erica is the name of the genus of approximately 860 species of heather. A variety called Erica persoluta was available from a grower in California and was incorporated into the designs.For the wedding arch and centerpieces Erica chose to utilize locally grown seasonal pee gee hydrangea which by their wedding date in September had developed a delightful mauve and green color.

Erica said the following about Cheshire Tree Floral Design’s creations and service:

“Thanks for making out wedding so beautiful”


“Sue and Kent were awesome – they responded quickly to every inquiry, change, and freak out. All of the flowers at the wedding were beautiful.”

We thank Erica for allowing us to share in her day and create some of her lasting memories!

Catering for the wedding was provided by Caperberry Events and the music was courtesy of Brendan and Dave of BOK Music.

What better way to incorporate Scottish heritage than having a bagpiper?
