Glam is in!

Glitz, sequins, shimmer, sparkle and shine are all the rage in wedding dresses and decor.
I love this look especially fall and winter weddings and am looking forward to seeing a lot more!

June 22, 2013 Wedding

Our month long rainy trend let up and delivered 3 beautiful days just in time for this fun wedding weekend at Mountain Meadows Lodge in Killington.

The weekend began with a welcome barbecue on Friday night. Sunflower arrangements were placed on some of the outdoor tables with lanterns on others.
Wedding day was beautiful! 
A ceremony sign directed guests to the ceremony site overlooking the lake.
Color scheme for this wedding was yellow, green and red. 
Green trick dianthus, ranunculus, garden roses, hypericum, freesia and jasmine vine were used in the bridal bouquet. 
The birch arch was decorated with sprays of white and yellow orchids.
Another view of the bridal bouquet.
Attendant bouquets were made similar to the bridal bouquet.
Groom boutonniere was made with yellow ranunculus.
Bridesmaid bouquets were wrapped with green polkadot grosgrain ribbon, keeping with the fun relaxed feel, red Tom's shoes, and polka dots on the bride's dress. 

A view of the ceremony site.
Old windows set on easels were used to display menus.
The bride and her family made hundreds of origami cranes in the months leading up the the wedding. Origami paper cranes are meant to bring eternal happiness and good luck. I love this idea! 
The day before the wedding, all of the cranes were hung over the dance floor. 
The "guest book" consisted of blocks of wood from the game 
"Tumbling Towers" guests wrote their wishes on.
Escort seating cards were displayed in birch logs.
This couple had a pie table instead of the traditional cake. 
Pieces of wood were set on the pie table waiting for the delicious pies.
A view of half the tent. Look at all those cranes!!
The reception tables had mixed yellow, red and green flowers arranged in vintage vases.
Most were sourced by the bride and her Mom, some by me.

Each guest also had a crane to take home with them!
I can't wait to see the pros photos!
I wish Holly and Alex all the best! Holly and her Mom were so, so fun to work with!!

May 17th, Grafton Inn Wedding

This all white Grafton Inn wedding included peonies, roses, lisianthus and freesia in the bouquets with hydrangea and babies breath for everything else.



The delivery van loaded with hydrangea arrangements.
A "wedding ceremony" sign made by the bride's mother, pointing the way to the ceremony site, was hung over a bucket of hydrangea and babies breath.



Hydrangea and babies breath filled mason jars were hung from shepherd hooks and white rose petals were scattered in the aisle.

The reception tables held more hydrangea and babies breath arrangements.



All white is one of my favorite looks, very classic, simple and beautiful!

June 16, 2012 Wedding

Field side ceremony, garden roses, peonies, birch arch, gorgeous sunshine, blue skies and abounding love. What more could you ask for your wedding day? I began working with this bride months ago. She had a pretty good idea of what she wanted right from the beginning but it took months to fine tune things. We met only once and did the rest of planning mostly via email. The results were just beautiful. The bridal bouquet was made with peach "juliet" and white garden roses, blush and white peonies accented with dusty miller. A locket belonging to the bride's grandmother was attached to the ribbon on the bouquet. Attendants wore gray dresses and carried bouquets made with a combination of peach, blush, pink and white garden roses, peonies, roses, craspedia and dusty miller with stems wrapped in light pewter gray colored ribbon. Boutonnieres were made of craspedia, a peony bud and dusty miller leaves. Ushers were craspedia and babies breath. A birch arch was set in front of a water pump decorated with two small babies breath arrangements. The arch itself had two arrangements of babies breath, peonies and roses flanked by two large babies breath arrangements made in old sap buckets. Small babies breath arrangements were placed along the aisle. This private Cornwall ceremony site was beautiful! The reception was held at The Waybury Inn in Middlebury, VT. These beautiful hand calligraphed escort card envelopes were placed in small birch logs. Table number cards were placed inside the envelopes. Leaf stamps were placed next to a hand-drawn tree. Guests were asked to add a new leaf to tree. A photo board was on display. Small babies breath arrangements from the ceremony site were placed between the candles. Chevari chairs, burlap runners on all the tables, and paper lanterns decorated the tent. Larger tables held 2 arrangements each. One in a birch container and one in clear glass. Smaller tables had a single larger arrangement made in a birch container. Yellow tulips have a sentimental significance to the bride. It was the first flower the groom had given her, and they were used everywhere at her bridal shower. It was the one flower the bride really wanted to have included, if at all possible. Chairs reserved for the bride and groom had swags of mixed greenery and babies breath tied to them. The event coordinator, Becca Newton of Missing Piece Events provided the lanterns lining the sidewalks in the garden and the burlap runners. Jars with candles and sand were used for extra lighting. Congratulations Laura and Pete. It was a pleasure working with you!
