The understated setup, designed not to overshadow the beauty of the lakeside landscape, included wrought iron chairs with white cushions, a rose petal aisle for the brides’ entrance and instead of a floral arch, a grand all-around composition in two wedding urns filled with classic flowers such as roses in warm ivory, cream, and antique pink, with seasonal blooms and a touch of greenery adding a scenic note.
