The Inn at Longshore : Summer Love

Summer Weddings are my fav.  The weather is hot and steamy just like the love that is being celebrated! I know, cheesy! but I’m serious, there’s something about Summer Lovin’…..Yup, that’s a Grease reference….

You see what I mean??? Emily and Jon’s Summer Wedding was absolutely flawless and I never use that word. Ever.  The hair, the dress, the groom, the flowers, the flowers, the venue, the sunset, the birch chuppah, did I mention the flowers? Not only was Emily so gracious throughout the planning process she trusted me implicitly which makes my job so much easier.  It means I am able to make design decisions on the fly if I want to change something for the better, I can without a worry. It means I can be creative and add touches that come to me when I’m in design mode that I know the bride will love and I can just go ahead and do it!  Everything comes out better than ever imagined when I can be fully trusted and do what you hired me to do…bring your vision to life.  Which is what I did here…take a look for yourself…

I couldn’t have hand picked a better team of Creative Partners to work this wedding with. I have to start with the unbelievably talented Victor from Binary Flips Photography.  Their entire team are so creative it blows my mind.  I added a few beautiful photos of Emily below that I just needed you to see, enjoy!

Vibrant Colors at The Inn at Longshore

Summer is my favorite season for a wedding at The Inn at Longshore….especially when you have a couple like Brooke and Tom! They totally embraced their summer wedding by using very vibrant florals for the decor and by choosing a steel drum band for the outdoor cocktail hour which allowed me to come up with a fun idea to use tiki torches as vases!   They weren’t afraid to use COLOR which matched their personality perfectly, so why wouldn’t we have explosions of color bursting on every guest table.   That ballroom came alive that day.

Jennifer’s Inn at Longshore Wedding, Westport CT

Jennifer’s fall wedding at the Inn at Longshore was fabulous!  As romantic as the bouquets were, as intimate as the waterfront ceremony was, the reception was so DRAMATIC!  Tons of candlelight, submerged flowers, tall centerpieces with orchids and hanging votives, HUGE “trees” created with manzanita branches and phaleonopsis orchids to add DRAMA to the lounge area!  Yes, a lounge area!

Of course this wedding was fantastic…we had the “Martha Stewart Team” back together again!  Wedding Planning by Erica from Ambiance {chic} Wedding Designs, Paper products by Adrienne from Admire Designs LLC, Photos by  Jacklyn form JAGstudios, and of course ME!  We were all behind Andrew and Jeremy’s wedding getting featured in Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine’s Winter 2010 issue!

Rob from Correlation Productions is the genius behind the lighting!  He is award winning and you can see his fancy work in The Art of Celebration – New England on page 338! I love working with him because he makes all of my centerpieces SHINE!

Okay, okay…onto Jennifer’s Fantabulous Affair…….
