Heather & Pat Part 1: Bridal Party

I was excited to be a part of Heather and Pat's wedding from the first time we met to talk flowers. Heather and her mom were so nice and such fun to talk to. And the color selection- deep plum with accents of vibrant pink and oranges- and flower choice- native dahlias (my fav!)- were right up my alley. Throw in a bit of vintage charm and I was in love!

Suzanne March photographed the wedding and her georgous, georgous shots really do tell the beautiful story so well. You can check out more images from this wedding on her blog www.suzannamarchphotography.com- and I will post some of the reception when I get them - but for now take a peak at these. In a word- WOW!!

Romance at The Villa

Admittedly, I am very, very behind on my blog posts! But now that wedding season has quieted down and I have a bit of room to breathe, I'm going to refocus my efforts and try to share most of the weddings we were fortunate enough to be a part of this fall and early winter. I'm backtracking a bit with this one, but I can't wait to show you.. this wedding was really really lovely and infused with rich color in all the right places (love the shoes!!).

Sarah and Rad were married on a georgous fall day in mid September. The deep red color the couple chose to use was a perfect compliment to the early autumn landscape and the fruitwood tones of The Villa's main ballroom. And, it allowed for us to use the georgous roses, dahlias and calla lilies that comprised Sarah's lush bouquet (love, love, ,love)! The bridal party flowers and ceremony were done in all white- fluffy white hydrangea, large open white roses and more dahlias. It was a lovely contrast to the deep red tones of the other flowers- quite a romantic, elegant combination!

Kristina Smith Photography captured the beauty of the day so well with georgous photos that really told the story. Here are just a few of the breathtaking images:

Ladyslipper Orchids and Luscious Color!

Here are a few pics from last weekend's wedding. I have many more posts to catch up on, but I loved the colors in these bouquets and I adore ladyslipper orchids so I couldn't resist taking a few minutes to post these. Check back soon for lots more weddings- I should have some beautiful professional photos from events we provided flowers for in October and early November!

Love Fall!

Last weekend found us back at the Codman Estate in Lincoln. Every time I go there I am floored by the sheer natural beauty of the grounds, and the romantic feel of the garden where many couples choose to exchange vows. It was such a georgous day- warm, sunny, happy- and I'm sure that vibe lasted throughout the afternoon and into the evening. And the flowers Katherine and Bob chose were perfect- lush, vibrant plum, purple and orange complimented with touches of gold .. it all fit together so beautifully. Here's a peek:

September Wrap Up

I finished the month with two beautiful weddings- the first last weekend at the lovely and unique Decordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, Ma and then this past Saturday at The Seaport Hotel in Boston (one of my favorite hotel venues by the way for many reasons). I cannot wait to get the professional photos from both of these because my crappy little camera and poor photo taking skills definitely didn't capture the beauty or uniqueness of either of these events. So.. stay tuned, but in the meantime here's a sneak peak. Oh and welcome FALL! I for one am finished with heat and humidity!!!

Romantic Vineyard Wedding

Kate and Doug chose Greenvale Vineyards in Portsmouth RI for their wedding. And what a lovely, lovely place! When we arrived (a bit later than planned due to Rte 24 being completely shut down for a few miles- all traffic re-routed on a tiny country road-really, on a Saturday?? Why?? Why!??) there were still lots of people milling about and enjoying the beautiful weather. There were groups gathered around small tables laid out with wine and cheese, couples lounging on the lawn and families camped out on picnic blankets, light music and laughter floating in the air. It was so charming!!! What a spot!

And I loved the decor the couple chose- the tent placed next to the rows and rows of grapevines dressed in an uncomplicated ivory and white pallate with touches of dark blue- perfect for a beachside vineyard wedding. We used garden roses, spray roses, veronica, thistle, qeeen anne's lace, scabiosa, lisianthus and freesia all arranged in glass jars, garden pots and wooden square vases.

Congrats Kate and Doug- I hope you enjoyed every minute of your beautiful night!
