Dressed for Valentine's Day
The staircase in The Mansion is dressed in red satin ribbon and laurel garland, all ready for a Valentine's Day bride. The unique balustrade, with each third spindle being different is significant to marriage. Being called a "wedding cake banister" their meanings are love, health and prosperity. A perfect start to a union of two people in love. Being open to the second floor of the home adds to the drama. As the long white train of the gown is captured by the perfect location for a photograph, good wishes and tears of joy abound. Happy Valentine's Day!
