Lush Garden Vows

An intimate, private estate wedding overlooking the vast ocean in Jamestown, Rhode Island.

Kiana and Maeve were inspired by the lush look of an overgrown greenhouse. As environmentally-conscious individuals, they chose a florist that only used locally-sourced flowers as well as farm-to-table caterer Blackstone Caterers. “The decor was dictated by what was blooming/growing in Rhode Island in September and our vendors brought our overgrown greenhouse vision to life exceptionally,” raved Kiana.

A sweet embrace after their first look.

Mini jars of local honey served as an edible escort card and favor!

Wild greens and mixed lanterns dangled from a wooden trellis, emulating the overgrown greenhouse vibe flawlessly.

Buttery-blooms added dimension to their bouquet.

Fresh blackberries and lemons lined each layer of the delicious buttercream cake.

Chiffon draping by Exquisite Events made a grand entrance into the tent.

“We’ve had countless memories as a couple here felt that getting married at home, on the water, surrounded by family, friends, and our dogs was ideal,” Kiana & Maeve reminisced.

As a former intern for Stasia Anthony at Exqusite Events, Sierra learned a lot about planning a wedding, but also learned what a beautifully unique venue Mount Hope Farm is. “I loved how you could make it your own.

This styled shoot was imagined as a graceful garden soiree with hints of whimsical details to keep the vibe lighthearted. Linden Place is a Federal-style mansion with architectural elegance that lends itself to a grandiose décor aesthetic. The magnificent archways that carry your from room to room are like portals to the past, each one telling a different story.

We used a mix of hydrangea, roses, ranunculus, snapdragons, snowberry, and tulips to frame the grand entrance,” Sayles described.

A single black & white stripe panel balanced the femininity of the floral arrangements with a touch masculinity.
