Crystal and Max live to travel, explore the world together and they are self professed foodies who love to share their passion for great dining with friends and family. In order to bring their sense of adventure and their love of nature & food to their friends and family, they needed to find a venue that felt like a perfect fit for them. They loved what Monteverde at Oldstone had to offer. A historical estate located in Cortlandt Manor, NY, the restored mansion and the expansive grounds give you the feeling that you have somehow stepped back in time. Monteverde also offered them the opportunity to have an outdoor ceremony on the grand lawn, and cap off the night with dinner, dancing and outdoor games at the expansive tented pavilion.
Keeping things casually elegant to showcase their laid back personalities, Crystal and Max chose a cool color palette to highlight the vibrant green and blue vistas surrounding them. As a subtle nod to her love of travel, Crystal wore a hair accessory she had brought back from Thailand to compliment her beautiful Rivini wedding gown.
The couple chose to add a little bit of fun into their wedding by tackling a few DIY projects. A rustic wheel barrel containing colorful packets of seeds with their guest’s names acted as the escort card table. The signage on the wheel barrel invited guests to “Please be seeded.” They made the whimsical initials decorating their bride & groom reception chairs as well as the dinner menu and beautiful table numbers.
After an exhilarating evening full of laughter, eating and dancing, the couple retired to one of the mansion’s luxurious suites. For this couple that spends so much time away from home to find adventure, this estate so close to home provided one of their most exciting and memorable adventures.
