Floral wallpaper? Check. Clawfoot tub? Check. Beautiful chapel? Check. The Mansion at Elfindale here in Springfield is the epitome of cozy and was the perfect space for a winter bed and breakfast wedding, making our quaint cottage-loving hearts sing.

Heather wanted a romantic English garden aesthetic to carry through her floral elements with blush and lavender roses, playful delphinium, bold anemone, and of course, elegant tulips.

The Ceremony

Heather and Ben’s ceremony took place on the grounds of the Mansion at Elfindale in the nicest little chapel with an incredibly ornate mosaic behind the altar. Since the altar featured a unique ledge in front of it, we decided to create a layered floral experience with flowers in front of, and behind the couple as they said their vows. The aisle also featured miniature gardens next to the pews.

The Reception

Inside the bed and breakfast each room is decorated completely differently, and the walls are covered in the most fun floral wallpaper. The colors are rich and moody, and we had to go peek in all the (open and vacant) rooms we could find to catch a glimpse of all the fun decor details. We felt as though we had transported into a British countryside cottage as we stepped from room to room.

At the reception, the floral centerpieces matched the walls, and we wanted to stay for the rest of the party to soak up all the coziness.

This final picture of the couple sneaking away in what looks like an enchanted winter garden really seals the deal for us. Absolutely gorgeous bride. Handsome groom. What a dream of a day.
