To bring classic elegance to the otherwise rustic Ramhorn Farm, the coordinators at événement Planning gathered with a team of wedding industry pros for our Premier Bride photo shoot. Gorgeous floral arrangements and tablescapes from Feisty Flowers, a towering marbled cake from Simma’s Bakery, and thoughtful invitations from Paperwhites set the scene for an utterly elegant celebration.
Upon entering the space, the first thing to catch your eye will undoubtedly be the show-stopping flowers and foliage. Lush and loose, the true whites and natural greens sprawl across the table and cascade from above. “Custom Ramhorn plates in classic white sit atop gold chargers, laid out on this amazing harvest table for 10,” says Janelle Meyer-Brown, owner of événement Planning. “Quince plucked from a tree just outside the Ramhorn barn adds the perfect final touch.”
Owner of Feisty Flowers, Jaclyn Millonzi, says, “We were inspired by the gardens on the property and the overall nostalgia of Ramhorn. We created lush table centerpieces filled with a variety of our favorite blooms such as anemones, ranunculus, freesia, lisianthus, dahlias, and delphinium. We wanted the overall look to be somewhat subtle, but still striking. We created suspended foliage wreaths to hover overhead and bring attention to the timber frames that really show off the European style of this gorgeous space.”
The crown jewel of the scene is Simma’s tiered marble and gold leaf cake, adorned with a vintage-style crown and seated upon an impressive stone cake stand, both from the owner of Ramhorn Farms’ personal collection. “A new trend in the industry is this marbleizing technique,” says Simma’s owner Peggy Carollo. “This technique allows us to incorporate more than one color and to give a stone effect to the cake. The colors are actually folded into the fondant before it’s applied to the cake. It’s extra special, because no two cakes will ever be alike!”
Each of the cake layers are “mile high,” meaning the bakers added two additional layers of cake to each tier. The wow factor is undeniable. 24-karat gold flecks round out the elegant sophistication, while the grey stone marbling grounds the cake — a perfect mix of elegance with a hint of Ramhorn-inspired rustic.
To invite guests to partake in all this beauty, Paperwhites created custom wedding invitations in the traditional European style. “We were inspired by the Ramhorn crest, as well as the color palette of whites, ivories, barn wood, and lush greenery,” says designer and owner Deb Eisner-Hackbarth. “Classic, European styling invited us to create simple, elegant invitations printed on pearl white letterpress stock — hand torn, gilded, and hand-painted with beeswax.” Topped off with custom calligraphy and a custom Ramhorn crest, receiving a wedding invitation like this one sets the tone for a most decadent, unforgettable affair.
