Historic Garden Wedding Inspiration


Today’s inspiration shoot could ideal be summed up as “timeless classic with a contemporary twist.” A talented group of vendors such as Candice Adelle Photography, L.Havard Events, Social Provide Design and style and Decor, and Sidra Forman all came collectively to develop a lush scene with a classic aesthetic but with updated accents, such as a table frame with hanging lights, a painted backdrop for a beverage show, and a dreamy bouquet full of the freshest colors in the wedding world. Let’s jump in!

From the photographer, Candice Adelle Photography: Our afternoon in this historic garden focused on timeless tradition with a modern day twist. We imagined “setting the table” for an intimate gathering drawing inspiration from interiors of urban farmhouses mixed with pretty new accents and reconditioned classics.

We loved the challenge of bringing that feeling to life at a location like the American Horticultural Society. The mixed metals and assortment of textures settled into the landscape alongside the beautiful collection of flowers which includes a single of our fall favorites, dahlias. To maintain things entertaining, we left our guests with a quote to reside by from Notorious B.I.G., opting for contemporary lettering in lieu of calligraphy. The Washington DC Region is full of dreamy wedding venues from historic residences and museums, wineries, old barns and glittery hotel ballrooms. This design transcends a selection of venues and would bring life back to any space.
