In a time of so much chaos in the world, we love the soft and peaceful nature of 2016’s Pantone Color(s) of the Year, Rose Quartz and Serenity. The way these colors blend seamlessly together just makes it that much more fun when using them in design elements. We also love that these colors speak to both genders and we feel like this is another step in the right direction when it comes to gender equality.
Last season our event planning and design team created hanging floral arrangements for Love is in the Air 2015 using both colors as the focal point. Check them out!
Just before the Thanksgiving holiday our event planning and design team hit the road and headed north to New York State to scout an event space for a 2017 wedding. Cedar Lakes Estates exceeded our expectations and we couldn’t wait to share with you!
Cedar Lakes Estate is a 500-acre property that offers guests a natural but elegant escape from the city life. The property features amazing landscapes with rolling hills, lakes, and forests. Cedar Lakes Estate is located in the Hudson River Valley and is the perfect setting for couples who are looking for a destination wedding without all the hassle of planning and hosting internationally.
Although rustic in many ways, Cedar Lakes Estate’s architecture is incredibly sophisticated and elegant. The property offers beautiful accommodations, indoor and outdoor ceremony spaces, and an indoor reception venue. Among them are the Amphitheater that stretches 20 feet over the lake, The Mountain Top that offers a breathtaking perch with amazing views and The Poolside Patio, which is a stone-faced patio with a gazebo and stone grill. The Barn is constructed from reclaimed wood and modern glass and is used as a reception space. The entire property is the perfect balance between rustic and elegant.
The homegrown feel doesn’t end in the aesthetics. Cedar Lakes Estates offers farm-fresh menus that are completely customizable. Word on the street is that their food is incredible and we don’t doubt it for a second.
We are looking forward to planning and designing a weekend of events at Cedar Lakes Estate. Until then we will just have to blog about it!
