vintage garden party wedding at the Hermitage

the moments that mattered: mom and dad cried, the design was perfection, they shared a meal, and they partied hard.

Sophie and Ian wanted a mermaid garden party. As a designer herself, Sophie's vision included the magnificent gardens at the Hermitage and her own personal, chic style. They combined these themes flawlessly, focusing on soft pinks, gentle florals, and a nod to the sea.

Their wedding day was filled with memorable moments. Her dad, a wedding photographer himself, was able to celebrate with her and also snap just a few photos of his daughter throughout the day. Sophie & Ian made a point to take a moment to celebrate their wedding with a private dinner, and then they danced the night away with their closest family and friends. It was the perfect day!
