Nature is without a doubt one of the most brilliant places to find design inspiration. For this wedding design, Janna Brown juxtaposed the old wold textures and tones of The Salubria with the natural organic beauty of the shades and shapes of mushrooms, climbing Clematis blooms, and Koko Loco Roses.
The bride wore an exquisite Monique Lhuillier gown that glowed brilliantly in the spring sunshine pouring through the glass windows shipped in from London two centuries ago. The groom was stately in his classic tuxedo look.
The tablescapes were dressed in warm neutral colored la Tavola linens, and the place settings featured delicate white plates embossed with filigree and topped with menus inspired by old books on nature, with a real wild mushroom representing the drawings. The florals were a repetition of arrangements containing roses, and clematis, in terracotta vessels that brought in the texture of The Salubria’s stucco and brick walls.
From the Designer and Editorial Host, Janna Brown:
“Indulging in the weathered textures of this hauntingly beautiful manor, our editorial at Salubria was designed to embrace the worn beauty of a bygone era.
Salubria had an eerie yet exquisite ambiance. History seeped from the walls as the manor creaked and moaned with the weight of our footsteps. Our bride donned a delicate antique cream lace gown that trailed behind her as she drifted across the timeworn floors. A spring bouquet composed of garden roses and clematis flower sat beneath her veil as the soft afternoon sun drifted through the wavy glass setting her aglow.
Our stationery suite was created from aged pages torn from old books, with a plethora of intricate invitation pieces designed to appear to have lived in old novels themselves. Further indulging in the raw beauty of the venue and the budding spring season, we incorporated fresh mushrooms to further the organic thread throughout the design…”
