Thursday’s Toast: When Pretty Meets Fabulous!

We decided to lighten up today.

With color of course!  It was time to get in touch with our softer side, and toast the wedding of Megan & Anthony. Pretty-meets-pink-meets-contemporary was the subtle, and elegant, theme to our design. With the fortunate luck of a the stylish Belle Mer as the venue, and the fantastic shutterbugs from Snap!, this wedding was a delicious delight of soft hues, and delicate textures!

Not only did we fall in love with this gorgeous couple, we floated about as we strategically placed in all the feminine, soft accents, and breathtaking details. I mean really?!  From the varying sterling dresses, to the couple, to the pink door…chic, chic, chic.

Hello Chic!

It was the delicate appeal of the flowers that captured our hearts. The couple had such an extraordinary style that was displayed so effortlessly in the design. The sterling accents gave the tablescapes the added appeal of elegance mixed with today’s modern feel. Notice the juxtaposing textures of this floral combination?  Leaves us a bit giddy.

Who Says Modern Can't Be Feminine?

It’s very easy to draw in the look of classic with a bold breath of fresh air! I keep spotting details that our design team added that make me think of a present twist on Gatsby/Deco…subtle, subtle, soft.

Varying Heights Of Delight!

We didn’t want to overshadow all of our lovely bride’s attention to detail. Look at those laser-cut table cards! So, we complimented it instead. The delicate appeal of the overall design shouted for simplicity. Now, you know us…when we state “simple” we mean clean. The layered heights, the clear glass, silver wire wrapped stems, all tiny, perfect details that do not outshine are ultra feminine flowers.

Is This Seat Taken?

Really?!  We may repeat it a bit too often…but we LOVE our job! So on this bright and sunny day, we toast the softer side of pretty. Many happy (and hearty) congratulations to Megan & Anthony! We had a blast.

A Pom Pom Of Pink!

Thursday’s Toast: Oh, Those Chic City Brides!

You know when a sophisticated couple mixes it up a bit?

Well, we love this! On the heels of our seaside summer post, this Thursday’s toast is all about opulence, and elegance. We can’t help but think of really hot, strappy pink Jimmy Choos while looking at this wedding!

Colors Never Looked So Sexy

Krista & Dan’s wedding, at the Providence Westin Hotel, was all about city, summer glamour in the stunning hues of fuchsia, plum, and red. All offset stylishly by the clean look of platinum and white. Oh, the look was so cosmopolitan.

Take a good look left at the wonderful play on texture, and the perfect marriage (of course) of the soft, delicate appeal of orchids accented by the festive, full appeal of peonies. Who said modern was too much?!

Our metropolitan couple brought in a great team to enhance their luxe vision from Ormonde Productions to Kristin Spencer Photography, guaranteeing no detail would go unnoticed…by the guests or afterwards by the couple! We added our signature “pop” of color everywhere you turned. Seriously…see these chargers from Rentals Unlimited below? Do you understand why we keep thinking of pretty shoes?!  We just can’t help ourselves!

Details, Details, Details...They Go A Long Way!

Platinum & white reigned gallantly over the tables. If you look closely, you’ll notice we infused a very subtle flutter of hot pink (look at the petals on the peonies) into these breathtaking, varying centerpieces.

A Clean Sophisticated Appeal

What made it really fun on the design floor was the amount of thought that went into all details of this wedding. We had color popping in the cocktail area, shimmer & opulence in the ballroom, and an enjoyable amount of elegant touches to play with all over. Look at this mix of reds & fuchsia blooms trailing down a cake from Scrumptions, Divine!

Clean Lines & Delicate Textures

The whole look was magical! But the real treat was showing off how pink compliments red and plum hues. Add in the platinum accents, and you have a very clean-modern look. The key is to let the details show themselves off well. Our team stacked, layered, and spaced out the varying elements so each one had a moment to shine. Just look at all the wonderful detail below on the head table, the tall glass cylinders and candle sticks gave height, as well as visual space for all the special details to stand out.It was such a spectacular event, and it is such a pleasure to show off this fun loving couple’s high style celebration!  We sure are some lucky ducks here at Stoneblossom!

So, Cheers to our happy couple and their spectacular, sparkling wedding!

This Flower Is On Us!

Tuesday’s Toast: A Luxe Garden Escape At Rosecliff

A Magnificent Couple

The perfect couple got married this past Memorial Day weekend at Rosecliff, in Newport. Paula & Evan envisioned a new twist on summer luxury.

With the delightful collaboration of Elissa Held, NY event planner extraordinaire, we gleefully transformed Rosecliff Mansion into a turn of the century french garden theme.

The opportunity to work with varying elements from vintage bird cages to charming cherub sculptures, left us in the most joyful of moods as we juxtaposed textures, and weaved in ivy & lush garden flowers.

How divine are these tiny details of sparrows hovering over the flourish of the script above?!

Or this magnificent attention to detail with our french inspired moss overlay holding ‘court’ underneath these whimsical escort cards…s-p-l-e-n-d-i-d.

A Very Creative Idea

The real treat was in all the tiny details, as we always love to weave into our designs. Notice the textures of the linens balanced so gracefully with the abundance of the roses, peonies, and ivy (plus oh-so many more spring blooms). And the vintage & french elements that tied the whole theme together so perfectly.

The Romance Of A Garden Indoors

No detail was overlooked! The gold rimmed wine glasses complimented Rosecliff’s ballroom, as varying centerpieces were adorned all over to create a stately appeal. Do you spy the stunning, monogrammed chair covers and glass beaded charger plates?

Adorning A Statue

The height of our centerpieces allowed us to play with the flowers! And oh boy, did we play! We were excited (ecstatic) to add complimenting, big, fresh blooms to a variety of eye-catching areas all around these french inspired statues. Our design team relished the creative production of weaving ivy all about the vintage trellis’ and showing it off, as it trickled elegantly down the sculptures, past the fragrant & colorful blooms.

The Graceful Appeal Of Height

And what a glorious day it was! We were so happy for Paula & Evan (look at the runner below…spectacular). The sun was shining, and all the glorious purple/lilac elements stood out brilliantly against the backdrop of a vivid blue ocean view.

A Breathtaking View

So, Hat’s off to Paula & Evan! We wish you many wonderful years to come, and many wonderful “thank you’s” for allowing us to take place in such a glorious event. Cheers!

Tuesday’s Toast: Deliciously Divine Details

Happy Tuesday here at Stoneblossom!

The design floor is busy & bustling with blooms everywhere! The delight of the spring & summer season is the tiny nuances, the sweet subtleties, and the little slices of personal detail all scattered about these sunshine weddings.

It’s these precious, well thought out, details that make an event so personal and individual. We love helping our favorite bride & grooms-to-be incorporate themselves into their spectacular celebration. From the sweet touch of country bees buzzing above the escort cards to the double take of a shimmering butterfly nestled into a centerpiece, they all exemplify a playful personality.

Bringing The Outdoors In

Oh, how these courteous details make a memorable statement of “welcome”.

A Cozy Courtesy

How divine are these wraps, all coordinated in the wedding’s color scheme and presented perfectly packaged for guests? My most favorite (of course) treat is when a couple personalize the signature spirits awaiting you at the bar. Mmm…

A Hometown Spirit

Or these hand painted signs that make you feel a bit at home? Seriously…It just makes you feel farm chic!

Farm Chic

Now, some details are all tied together with a little bouquet for your four-legged family members.

Bark Worthy Touches

But as always here at Stoneblossom, our most special, most favorite, most memorable detail exudes a sigh worthy moment of L-O-V-E.  Ahhhhh….cheers to delicious details all season long!

Toasting All You Lovely Brides

A Lovely Surprise

This was such a lovely morning. I had just taken the first sip of my delicious latte and logged on Facebook. Much to my surprise, there was a notification letting me know that we were featured today on The Ebury Collection’s blog. It’s a fabulous site from the United Kingdom’s own Hannah Gooch. On her site she showcases everything “for your perfect wedding” by highlighting style ideas and vendors.

Her posting today was all about another one of our favorite couples, Sarah and Kyle Hinchey. Their Tuscan-Inspired celebration took place at Belle Mer’s Island House in Newport, RI. From Sarah’s gorgeous bouquet of creamy white Lily of the Valley, to their ceremony arrangements that perfectly framed the couple as they said their vows, all the way to their beautiful Tuscan tables for their reception – we loved it all! These fabulous images were taken by Kristin Spencer Photography and the incredible lighting was provided by Ormonde Productions. This event was planned by one of our favorite event planners, Donna Kim,  of  The Perfect Details.

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!
