Photo Shoot Teaser

As some of you may have already heard on our Facebook fan page, we are doing a second photo shoot with the endlessly talented Rob Fortunato and the equally stunning Adrienne Ferreira in NYC. We simply can’t contain ourselves, we are so freaking excited! So, I decided to put together a little teaser of never before seen images from our last collaboration in Newport to hold us over until the new images debut… and when they do,  I promise hearts will be racing!

Captivating Bouquets

Hello, Darlings. Today we want to share some inspiring images with you for what we consider to be the most important floral decision you will make for your wedding. Your bouquet! We’ve scoured the internet and our own catalog of images to find only the most beautiful, most amazingly dreamy bouquets for you to feast your eyes on. And I dare say, I think we did a heck of a job… There is a little something for every bride on this list – from classic to natural – we’ve got you covered. Staring is highly encouraged…

Transitional Color: From Ceremony to Reception

When you are looking to capture the interest and imagination of your guests, the best thing to do is to keep them guessing. One of the better ways to achieve this is to transition your event’s color scheme throughout the day. Remember that the different aspects of your event – ceremony, cocktail hour and reception – don’t have to match. In fact, it’s better if they don’t!

Start with a subdued and elegant ceremony in soft shades (you can never go wrong with ivory, platinum and soft blush tones).

As your guest gather around the cocktail area after the ceremony, give them a glimpse of what’s to come later in the evening by kicking the colors up a notch. Keep the linens crisp and simple in neutral tones, but have fun with the flowers… interesting containers, bright compositions… you get the idea.

Then, when your reception space is ready for the big reveal… blow their socks off with saturated rich tones. Think deep purples, hot pink or warm ambers. Basically, let them know that it’s time to party! You could even coordinate your lighting to have it gradually get deeper as the night goes on, becoming brightest and most saturated as the band/DJ kicks things into gear.

We hope you’ll be inspired to keep things fresh and build anticipation for your guests!

On another note – Remember to join us this Saturday, April 10 for the East Greenwich Wedding Walk! We’ll be set up inside New England Invitations on 36 Main Street with some lovely floral eye candy for you to devour… Make sure to stop by and say hello. We’d love to make a proper introduction!

Double Dose Of Features

We are just over the moon about our bouquets being featured on Wedding Chicks today! Don’t they look so happy?

The ladies at Snap! Photography always know how to get the “it” shot. Our lovely bouquets were part of  an inspiration board that was put together on the always fabulous  My Kate Paker Wedding . That site is such a great source for brides and is just full of beyond muse worthy images and inspiration.

And just when we thought our little hearts had enough excitement for one day… Raina Dawn, only one of our favorite event planners in Newport, featured a wedding we did last summer shot by the breathtakingly talented Christian Oth on her blog! You simply must take a look.

Thanks for sharing the love!
