A Longwood Christmas – Longwood Gardens

After shooting a gorgeous New Years Eve wedding at the Wilmington Country Club, what better place to start the new year than a visit to the lush Longwood Gardens?!  Even when it’s cold outside the extensive green houses are a warm space to enjoy.  Here is the large East Conservatory.

The recently renovated Ballroom which houses the magnificent pipe organ and hosts fun holiday sing alongs and concerts.  The skylight ceiling and chandeliers are so beautiful.

The Music Room features gingerbread replicas of the Conservatory and the Peirce-du Pont House

The Orchid House has stunning specimens.

Love the creative (and huge!) wreaths!  This one is mostly herbs.
I love ferns! 

Many specimens of poinsettias. 

And Amaryllis. 

The Exhibition Hall becomes a Christmas fountain. 
And the Orangery, my favorite room. 

Happy New Year!
