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!

Glamorous Harborside Wedding

Kara and Steve were married overlooking the Boston Harbor on a perfect September evening. The view was unrivaled, the weather was georgous and the entire evening was filled with glamour and romance. In a word this wedding was spectacular. We used masses of white and light pink hydrangea, white roses and pale pink roses, lots and lots of crystal strands and sparkly things, plus hot pink spray roses in fancy martini glasses to compliment the lounge seating on the lawn. I think it was a very special night for the couple and for all their guests. Congrats Kara and Steve!!!

Another Style Me Pretty Feature!

As I'm sure is the case with many of you, Style Me Pretty is my go-to blog for inspiration. Every day there seems to be a wedding featured that's even more georgous or unique than the last. And, I know many of the brides I work with feel the same way. That's one reason it's so thrilling when one of our couples gets to be featured on the site!

Meaghan and Matt had a crazy beautiful wedding in Boston last June. I felt so fortunate to be a part of their special day for many reasons but mainly because they were such a lovely couple. It truly was a pleasure helping them bring their vision for their wedding to life. And, I think it's so nice that they put so much of themselves in to their ceremony and reception. All the personal and thoughtful details were surely appreciated by the loved ones that helped them celebrate! And now others can draw inspiration from them too. It truly was magical.

I'll be posting photos from their wedding here too, but for now here's the link to the Style Me Pretty entry:

And.. here's the link to the blog entry that the photographer-Matt Grazier- posted shortly after the wedding:
