Sally & Bennett Get Married! A BPL Wedding...

When Sally and I met to walk through the room at the Boston Public Library last winter, I knew it was going to be one of my all time favorite wedding venues.  The space itself is absolutely gorgeous..but dress it up with big wooden farm tables, string lights, comfortable lounge furniture and an assortment of lush florals (we used tons of lilac, tulips, peonies and garden roses to name a few) and you are transported to a different place.  Sally and Bennett added tons of personal touches too- collecting lots of green glassware and other baubles, incorporating paper flowers, handmade table runners and family photos to create a real old-world Boston feel for their chic, intimate wedding.  It was such a pleasure working with them and I'm thrilled that their special day was truly spectacular.

Garden Glam!

I cannot tell you how much I loved working on this wedding!  I'll be posting some stunning professional shots of Heather and Tom's absolutely drop dead gorgeous Lyman Estate wedding from the talented Molly of Molly Anne Photography, but for now, here are a few pics I took myself.   The combination of peonies, David Austin garden roses, ranuculus, vibernum and stock in lusious peach, coral and blush color tones really was breathtaking, These flowers had me from hello.  From the minute I picked them up at the flower  market it was pure joy... but when I was finished setting up and could see the full effect- well, it was just magic.  And, you know I love a crafty bride!! Heather provided the all vases which she painted herself to look like mercury glass.  They were just perfect. We grouped them differently for each table- some had just one large vase, others had two, and a few had three smaller ones.  It's really a great idea to have a few different table styles- I think it makes your wedding seem more intimate and personal.
