Renee & Ben – A Colorful Summer Wedding
When a wedding design includes pink flamingos, huge paper flowers, and lots of bright colors you know it is going to be a FUN time. Renee and Ben got married on a beautiful summer day at Willowdale Estate. The vibrant colorful details that decorated every aspect of their ceremony and reception were so joyful and unique. We hope you are inspired by these photos and don’t forget to pin your favorite ideas and check out the amazing wedding professionals that helped to make this event happen at the bottom of this post!
GETTING READY & FIRST LOOK
Renee and Ben arrived at Willowdale Estate early so they would have plenty of time to eat, drink, and take photos before the ceremony. The bridesmaids each wore a different gold cocktail length dress with metallic or sequin details. Our favorite portraits of the couple show how happy this couple is together- and this is BEFORE they said “I Do”!
The ceremony was in the Garden Courtyard at Willowdale Estate. As guests arrived they saw large white balloons tied down with colorful ribbon, a cheerful sign greeted them along with our staff passing Cucumber Mint Water and Prosecco. In the entryway there was a paper flower sculpture that stood over 6 feet high. This whimsical entrance set the tone for all of the other details that were to come! The focal point of the ceremony was a custom arbor design with a flush of large handmade paper flowers, real flowers, and ribbons of green, fuchsia, pink and orange.
After the ceremony Willowdale Estate servers passed a Spicy Margarita cocktail made complete by a fun pink flamingo straw. In the Great Room, there was a truly unique escort card display. Green and glittery gold escort cards hung from the mantle from gold beads that were adorned by mini paper flowers and honeycomb balls. Guests enjoyed drinks and passed appetizers in the estate and even got a glimpse of the Wedding Cake displayed in the Dining Room at Willowdale Estate.
If you thought the first half of this wedding was fun wait until you see the tent! Our sperry tent was decorated by a huge custom paper honeycomb garland that hung across the entire length of the tent. The guest tables had a mixture of high and low centerpieces on both round and white farm tables. The courtyard was decorated with furniture and fun wedding pendants.
We love to see a great wedding theme that is truly unique, and the best part is- the vibrant personality and joy from the wedding certainly comes through in the photos! For even more photos check out the post from this couples fantastic photographer here!

Spring Blooms In Our Garden Courtyard
Spring is a special time of year at Willowdale when our butterfly garden courtyard comes alive and kicks off the start of our tent season.
Tulips and daffodils are the main attraction of the courtyard in the spring, which creates the perfect backdrop for wedding ceremonies and themed outdoor events.
As the weather gets warmer and summer begins, our colorful annuals, daisies and zinnias begin to appear and last through the fall season.
Our evolving butterfly garden courtyard and Sperry Tent serve as a beautiful event space for outdoor events from May to October.
