The stunning, literary-inspired wedding day of Bianca and Ernesto was filled with references to their shared love of reading; but that's just the first chapter! Alder Manor, the charmingly dilapidated and utterly romatic 1912 mansion on an estate just minutes from NYC, provided a Greek theater garden for the ceremony, a sweeping marble staircase for Bianca's grand entrance, and the cozy library for their reception dinner.  A purple and gold palette, vintage books, a whimsical custom monogram, and elegant calligraphy were just a few of the details in this love story!
