Whitby Castle Wedding Rye, NY

Daydreaming of being married in a bonafide castle? Then this wedding at Whitby Castle in Rye, New York will give you all the inspiration you need to bring your daydream to life!

Your shoe game has to be on par if you are planning on having a castle wedding! For this Whitby Castle wedding, the bride wore a pair of glimmering, sparkly, open-toed, rose gold colored Badgley Mischka’s; and they are the stuff of shoe dreams. The bride’s wedding day style can be described as both classic and elegant. For the bridal gown, she chose a style with soft light layers upon layers of tulle and a jeweled and beaded spaghetti strap bodice. The bridesmaid’s gowns were also spaghetti strap gowns, done in a light mauvey pink with a crisscross back detail.  The bridal bouquet was arranged with soft white and blush roses and highlighted by white calla lilies.

Transportation for the wedding party was provided in the form of a classic trolly! How fun is that? A trolly drove the bridal party from the church ceremony to the castle celebration. The reception at Whitby Castle was full of dancing all night to great music provided by Kaos Productions.

Decorating the space inside a castle wedding reception can be a grand task. You may encounter ceilings that are too high to decorate, or if you are in a historic space you may be limited with what you can attach or hang from the walls. Tall table centerpieces are a distinguished way to help set the atmosphere at your reception. Talk to your floral designer about creating for the space that you will be celebrating in so that they can best navigate what might work for you in terms of height and style!
