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!
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?
Sometimes you meet a couple and instantly notice how well they complement one another – and in this case, Ashley + Justin are 100% that couple. When I first met them to discuss coordinating their April wedding, I was instantly struck by how confident, cool, and collected Ashley was, and the way that Justin looked at her with so much love. I also noticed how comfortable Justin made Ashley feel, and how much he made her laugh.
The second you meet Kelly + Greg, the first thing you’ll notice is how they make each other laugh. The second thing you’ll notice is how incredibly sweet they both are! And the third thing you’ll pick up on is how much their friends and family absolutely adore them.
