When bride, Natasha, went to Erin McLean Events, she had this vision of finding the perfect place to be married in a garden, but as any practical bride would want, a solid rain plan.

The key to this design plan was recreating the feel of a lush summer garden party in a beautiful clean white space. So, Natasha’s team decided to create the garden from above. Hanging stunning floral installations from the ceiling of the Merrimon-Wynne Carriage House set the tone. Combined with the organic feel of farm tables, hemstitch napkins paired with gold flatware, and the family style dinner service – this afternoon wedding was the hit of the summer. Guests danced away to the sounds of a classic jazz band with crystal chandeliers and a bright garden overhead. It was true southern perfection.
