Secret Garden Magic at The Clifton Inn

Abbey and Danny’s intimate May wedding called in cozy, enchanting secret garden vibes. Little Acorn Events planned a stunning ceremony with close friends and family set under weeping willows and natural greenery. Deep emerald bridesmaid dresses and simple soft rose bouquets heightened the fairytale aesthetic.
The spring celebration sustained the romantic woodsy feel throughout the reception’s eight-peaked sailcloth tent where floral architects from Riverwood Designs paired rich green vines and fern with fragrant blooming pink roses. Valley Heirlooms brought elegant touches that included a deep red vintage rug and brass and ivory dinnerware with matching candlestick towers.
Amber Mae Photography played up the Clifton Inn’s luxuriant property, capturing sweet newlywed moments in the gardens and tucked away in the trees. Family portraits unfolded in the Colonial Revival manor home’s prestigious library. The Clifton Inn culinary team delighted guests with a customized plated dinner built around the onsite organic vegetable and herb gardens. Guests lounged on strategically placed vintage velvet furniture and savored wine, coffee service and crème brulee before dancing to tunes by Charles Rasputin.
