"In my sky at twilight you are like a cloud and your form and colour are the way I love them. You are mine, mine, woman with sweet lips and in your life my infinite dreams live."
- Pablo Neruda
"I was inspired by the architecture of Dover Hall Estate; both in the intrinsic qualities that you can see and smell and touch along with the intangible elements of an ethereal mood and timelessness that are immediately presented to you upon arrival to the estate. I constructed a great deal of the artistic direction around the shapes and textures found on the grounds. The arches and stonework are absolutely breathtaking and were key elements to the overall design process. The goal was to show couples what it would be like to be transported away to another place and time on their wedding day; all while staying local." - Maggie Richard
