Le Chateau, South Salem, New York-Jenna and Joe’s Wedding


Jenna and Joe chose the beautiful Le Chateau in South Salem, New York for both their ceremony and reception. The side garden, with its intricate stonework and lovely plantings, was the perfect place to exchange their vows. Following the ceremony the garden was transformed into the cocktail area, complete with tables and the built in stone bar. The reception took place in the main dining room with its chestnut hand carved walls, fireplace and view of the garden.

Jenna chose a neutral color for the bridal party bouquets and the men’s boutonnieres using exclusively ivory roses. All of the other floral designs incorporate her favorite color, pink! Also a part of the theme of the day was music. Staffs, clefs, notes … Jenna’s love of music was on full display in the bouquet wraps, programs and place cards.

All of the bridal party bouquets were wrapped in music ribbon.

The bridesmaids’ bouquets were tightly clustered ivory roses.

The mothers carried a single rose with a satin bow.

The gorgeous side garden at Le Chateau, South Salem, New York

Large arrangements of white hydrangea, ivory roses, pink roses, pink peonies and pink stock in urns atop verdi gris columns were placed at the beginning of the aisle.

The wedding “arch” was actually a two dimensional backdrop created using birch branches and decorated with hydrangea, roses, peonies and stock. 

Low arrangements, so as not to block the guests’ views,  were placed on each end of the wall in front of the ceremony.

Pink rose petals were place on the linen aisle runner in an intricate serpentine pattern.

The place cards were designed using a musical border, or course!

Le Chateau’s marble top table acted as the place card table.

The bride and groom sat at a sweetheart table decorated with a lush display of rose petals and pillar candles. Later, the bride’s bouquet would serve as the centerpiece.

The centerpieces were full arrangements of white hydrangea and pink roses in cylinder vases. The arrangements were surrounded by pillar and votive candles providing a romantic glow to the room.

The narrower banquette tables held smaller arrangements of white hydrangea and pink roses. Ivory pillar candles would provide a romantic glow for the reception.

The mantle was decorated with an arrangement, lemon leaf garland and pillar candles.

Pillar candles in hurricane glass were placed along the window ledge in the lower level of the main dining room.

Railings were decorated with ivy vines and pink roses.
