Wedding Style: Vintage Meets Modern

Old World charm meets elegant modernity at a celebration held at Chateau des Fleurs in Idaho.


"I love to capture historic locations in today's world," says Krista Cox. "Mixing history with designs and couples of today is an absolute dream." To wit, the chalk-white table and chairs set off with a tumble of romantic cottage blooms.

A closer look at the artful tablescape, with linen napkins knotted just so, touches of blush pink via blooms and drinking glasses, and long tapered candles in a quirky yet sophisticated mauve-grey. The lush florals were arranged in small clusters set from one end of the table to the other, and kept low, for easy conversation.

Cocktails are served on a tiered, circular display table. "It was a stunning display," Krista says.

An outdoor bar takes advantage of the sunlit setting, the better to show off the pretty glassware.
