“Fresh ~ Calm ~ Ocean”….are the words that Jennie and Andy used to describe their vision to me. Having their reception at Saybrook Point Inn and Spa (where I am a preferred florist) was the perfect backdrop to make that happen. Jennie spent months collecting sea glass and starfish to scatter all around the ballroom because she wanted her wedding to be personalized. As you’ll see below, they had bag pipes playing during the receiving line at the Old Lyme Congregational Church, they had custom color straws for their personalized cocktails, and even an artist painting their reception in real time. They were such a fun couple and it shows in these awesome photos by Alicia of the newly rebranded and redesigned Alicia Ann Photographers.(formerly known as noeyehasseenphotography)
Ahhhh! I just adore vintage anything…especially vintage themed weddings! I met Jamie, Sam and their families at the New Haven Lawn Club tasting the year prior. Being a preferred florist of the NHLC I get to design centerpieces for all guests table and decorate the entire club for the tastings.
I remember meeting Jamie so clearly because she was so happy to see her centerpiece and had loved what I created , but there were a few problems…she said that it needed MORE roses and MORE bling! I thought “Uh, a girl after my own vision! We’re going to get along just fine and have a ton of fun planning every detail!”.
The NHLC is the perfect venue and backdrop for a vintage wedding…with the building having been built in the early 30’s and those chandeliers….dripping with crystals!!!!
Jamie and Sam had an underlying theme of “an evening in the park” and all the tables were named after local parks.
My team was very instrumental in designing Jamie and Sam’s floral creations…I have the best team EVER!
Jamie was very happy with the results and my team as well, as you will see below:
“Candi, my flowers were unreal…I am still getting compliments from everyone. Thank you and your wonderful team. I loved the bling and vintage touches.”
I was so pleased when I found out that they hired Cheryl of Cronin Photography to capture their special moments because she is not only so great to work with, but her work is beautiful. Enjoy these samplings and be sure to visit my website very soon for the full feature!
