Something Borrowed ...

Lauren and Donald's Boston Harbor Hotel wedding was breathtaking. The lush purple tones of the centerpieces were a perfect compliment to the black and white table runners, white silk table linens, and black chivari chairs the couple rented. We alternated tables with a single large square glass vase overflowering with masses of purple and green flowers, and a grouping of three vases of varying heights filled with calla lilies, lisianthus, hydrangea and hyacinth. The Wharf Room is lovely as it is, but dressed up with the deep rich colors- loved the black!!- it was spectacular.

I loved the small details that made this wedding personal and sentimental- tables named for locations special to the couple, a fun candy bar- all purple!!- and best of all.. Lauren asked me to sew some buttons from her mother's wedding dress onto the stem wrap of her bouquet to represent "something old". Awesome idea- I have to admit I wish I'd thought of that one for my own wedding.. and though since launching this career (post-wedding!) there are many, many occasions where I find myself saying that, in this case I really did pinch myself. What a lovely, lovely thing to do!!

Ah.... Autumn Flowers!

The wedding last Saturday was-in a word-georgous! Lovely couple, crisp Autumn afternoon, and rich hued, luscious flowers! I loved how Andrea and Julie added personal touches in the small details and how everything came together so beautifully. And the weather (after a so-so start) could not have been better - bright sunshine, slight breeze, cool air.... what a glorious day to be married!

We used a combination of dahlias, roses, calla lilies, amaranthus, orchids, spray roses, pyracantha (small orange berried branches) and seed pods to create unique, but complimentary, centerpieces for each table. The flower arrangements were designed to enhance the table runners that were a sentimental part of the decor. Lexi Photography was there to capture it all and I can't wait to see her professional photos (which I of course will post here because I really think this wedding is fantastic inspiration for any couple hoping to marry in the Fall! ).
