Garden House 1820 hosts first wedding! Episode 1 of the wedding is streaming now! Come see how we work to make this day perfect!
Way back when I was dreaming up and designing my garden house, my goals for this place were vast. I wanted a place to garden and pot plants. I wanted a small living room area where I could sit, decompress and day dream. I dreamed of spending time in the garden house for happy hours and enjoying dinners with my family. And, I wanted an exclusive space that I could share with many, for private dinners, small events and parties, and most of all, celebrate weddings.
Garden House 1820 Hosts First Wedding. Episode 1
This past fall was epic! It was surreal! And, it was magical! Garden House 1820 hosted its first wedding ever, with guests from all over the U.S., friends, family, and of course, the gorgeous bride and groom.
It was our honor to host a dear friend getting married. One that we have known for over 20 years, that met and married the most loveliest bride. Two hearts made of gold. The first time they stepped foot in the garden house, they told Sean and me that this magical place would make their wedding day dreams come true.
And at that moment, we vowed that we would see to it that their wedding day would be the most beautiful, the most special, and the most elegant wedding day they could ever hope for.
So, we had to get working. Lots to get done, for sure. In order to host a wedding, there were a few major projects to be completed beforehand. Projects like cleaning up all of the accumulated leaves in all of the gardens; setting up multiple seating areas for guests to congregate, and the biggest project of them all: cut down 4 trees near the garden house that were dead or dying, and get them out of site.
Luckily, I had help from a professional that has dedicated all of her life to trees. A professional arborist, Athena knows everything about trees, inside and out, and she was on hand to not only take these trees down, but clean and tidy up the healthy and vibrant ones.
We had logs, branches and sticks all over. What’s the saying – it will look worse before it looks better? This is true. Even with all of the branches and sticks all around, it still looked better than it had before. Athena cleaned and organized as she went. It’s almost as if she treated our yard as a chef treats his/her kitchen; clean as you go, keeping all work surfaces free. Same goes for her, here, even if that meant she would have to touch the branches multiple times before they landed in the compost where they belonged. She worked tirelessly, and with true finesse.
