Originally, Sarah and Kirk had planned on a traditional wedding: around 120 guests, a large venue, a few hours on the dance floor, the whole shebang. About halfway through planning, I received an email from Sarah saying that they’d changed their minds, and an intimate, 20-person restaurant wedding felt “more them”. As a big believer in wedding days being a true reflection of each couple, this was music to my ears!
Mackenzie and Jason are one of those couples that perfectly complement one another. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that they’ve been together since middle school (check out those love notes from their early months together!), but I was immediately struck by how they both balanced a sense of calm with the most fun, silly personalities. Their wedding reflected just that!
When I met Carolyn and James for the first time, they shared their vision for a modern, minimal wedding at Warehouse XI in Somerville, MA. They showed me inspiration photos of a beautiful white, black, and green wedding, but after getting to know them a bit better I quickly learned that Carolyn is drawn to the color yellow (check out her shoes!), so I instantly knew that we had to find a way to blend their minimalist vision with a bit of color!
If you know me, you know that I love any reason to celebrate. And I mean any reason. My heart is all the more full when a sweet client asks me to plan a celebration with such a special meaning: in this case, a celebration of gratitude.
The only thing better than getting to be a bridesmaid in your friend’s wedding is when she welcomes you into the wedding design process and the two of you get to bring all of her dreams and visions to life. My dear friends Gabi and Tim got married in November, and it was one of the most colorful, vibrant days I’ve ever been a part of!
Any Harry Potter lovers out there? This one’s for you! When my sweet client Julie approached me to ask for help with planning and designing a baby shower for her friend Jackie, I couldn’t resist. When she told me Jackie was a huge Harry Potter fan, as a lifelong fan, I was elated.
Kim and Joe are the kind of people that make you feel like an old friend as soon as you meet them. Throughout their entire planning process, they kept me on their toes with their witty humor and we wanted to reflect their fun personalities into their wedding day! When we first met, they were envisioning a summer camp wedding, dubbed Camp Capquist (a combination of their two last names). Guests stayed for the entire weekend, playing camp games, enjoying activities like obstacles courses and beach yoga, and cozying up by the fire.
My dear friend Gabi is getting married, and I recently got to serve double duty as bridesmaid and event designer as we planned her taco-inspired bridal fiesta! Gabi loves tacos (if you don’t believe me, make sure you’re following along on her Instagram and her blog), so it seemed like the perfect treat to inspire her special day.
Angie and Matt were married at the Boston Public Library, a dream venue full of history and charm. One of their favorite elements of the space? The library’s garden courtyard where they exchanged vows. Throughout planning, Angie was most excited to incorporate some of that garden feel into the reception as well, and we did just that! Lush blooms from Sweet Annie Floral adorned every surface and complemented the natural stone tones of the Guastavino Room in the loveliest of ways.
Abby + Garrett’s Charleston inspired, detail-infused wedding appealed to every sense – guests were met with a vision of southern charm with french blue, peach, and patterned details, the scent of citrus-infused floral arrangements filled the air, and the locally sourced dinner from Cannon Green was mouthwatering to say the least. Fresh crab cakes and fried green tomatoes, anyone?
