A Chic Garden Wedding with Provencal Flair at Green Acres Art Center in Cincinnati, Ohio

Whimsical florals, textured table linens and gold-rimmed glassware brought Samantha Buyniski (28 and a technology strategy consultant) and Vitaly Goldfeder’s (29 and an investment banker) charming garden theme to life.

When a little rain prevented Samantha and Vitaly from exchanging vows in the venue’s gardens, the pair brought the beauty of the outdoors in with a birch chuppah draped in curly willow, vines, pink peonies and blush roses.

“Greenacres is this beautiful Cincinnati oasis, tucked away in Indian Hill,” Samantha says. “We didn’t even know that it existed prior to our venue search, but as soon as we saw the space, Vitaly and I both knew it was exactly what we wanted for our wedding day.”

The newlyweds took an unconventional approach to their first dance song, choosing a throwback tune that took guests by surprise. “We danced to ‘I Want It That Way’ by the Backstreet Boys,” Samantha says. “We just wanted a song that would break the ice, get some laughs and put everyone in a good mood.”
