Rustic Wedding at Crabtree’s Kittle House, Chappaqua, New York


Cris and Mike wanted their wedding to be different. They accomplished this in part through a combination of elements such as birch cross section, mini pumpkins, string, mason jars and casually arranged flowers. The cedar wedding arch incorporated bittersweet and curly willow with roses and callas. The place cards were made from paper cut in the shape of leaves and hung from a tree made from real branches.

We so much enjoyed working with Cris and Mike and wish them much hapiness together. They were kind enough to write the following review which can be found on Thanks guys!

“Sue and Kent are pure geniuses! they turn flowers into art in it’s simplest, yet most sophisticated form. our flowers, decorations, centerpieces and ceremony decor were beyond gorgeous! we could not have asked for a better couple to create such beautiful floral arrangements, to make our wedding day so special. all of my friends from work compliment the flowers in every picture i show them. we would definitely recommend the cheshire tree to all of our friends and family. Cristina & Michael”
