A Classic Fall Wedding at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, New York
Since they started dating, Deirdre Bell (30 and an accountant) and Chad Pinheiro (32 and an accountant) made annual trips to upstate New York for the beautiful fall foliage. They loved the area so much that when it came to chose the location for their classic wedding, it was a no-brainer. The outdoor grounds at Belhurst Castle in Geneva, New York, set the perfect fall scene for the ceremony, surrounded by tall trees with green and orange leaves. The aisle lined with orange calla lily arrangements led up to the front of the ceremony area, where Deirdre and Chad said their vows next to lush orange, ivory and purple flowers inside elegant bronze vases. Deirdre, Chad and their wedding party brought the orange and blue palette to life—from the navy blue bridesmaid dresses to Chad's orange tie—with both colors blending nicely with the natural landscape. The reception took place in the castle's ballroom, where tall arrangements filled with hydrangeas, dahlias, Queen Anne's lace and other blooms and greens decorated the dining tables. Instead of a traditional wedding cake, Deirdre and Chad went with a selection of cheesecakes that had our mouths watering at first glance.
