“Dreamy” is what comes to mind when I look at Julianne…her dress, her hair piece, her bouquet…. Her and Andrew’s wedding was so soft and full of romance…you have to see for yourself….
Venue: Saltwater Farm Vineyard (where we are PREFERRED)
Caterer: Gourmet Galley, Keri Bell is awesome! They refer us quite often and we are PREFERRED at their venue, Guilford Yacht Club
Photographer: Maggie Conley This was my first time working with her and she was lovely, so easy going and so talented. She is the reason this blog post is even titled Dreamy!
Merrin and Gabe came to me with some GREAT ideas but needed my experience and talent to bring it all to life! I’ve recently created another division of my Floral Design Experience called ‘Design Coordination’ which you can read more about HERE, which allows you to be able to sit back and relax and let me execute the vision above and beyond the flowers. This level of planning works great when my clients have extremely busy schedules or are from out of state…or in Merrin and Gabe’s case out of the country and living in London! Merrin wanted a Bohemian flair on the tables and the underlying theme was Ikat patterns on her fabric and paper, so, with the help of my mother (where my creative genes come from) we not only found some great eclectic fabrics to incorporate into her decor but we took it up a notch and hand made the guest Table Top Linens, as well as Merrin and Gabe’s chair covers, along with runners for the seating card table and toppers for the cocktail tables. When I saw her invitations and menus I was astounded that the fabrics I chose for her tables were the exact pattern she chose for her paper! It all came together elegantly with pops of Hot Pink and Gold with accents of driftwood, succulents and mercury glass. This wedding was a TRUE partnership…so much so that I just received an email from Merrin stating that I have inspired her to make a career change to become an Interior Designer! If that’s not flattering, I don’t know what is!

Merrin and Gabe’s Testimonial:
That’s right!!!!….. ” Bohemian Beach “
I knew this was going to be a very unique wedding when Katie and Jason came to me with their ideas…LOTS of ideas! I was able to narrow them all done to create their summer beach wedding with a twist of their personalities, which is of course, Bohemian.
They wanted COLOR!!! and a way to incorporate fun, unique, accents of the shoreline, since there wedding was at the Cottage-Chic, Owenego Beach Club in Branford.
I want to talk about the details…therefore, let’s talk about what “Bohemian” means….
‘unconventional’, ‘non-traditional’, ‘creative’, ‘extremely wide range in taste of music, art, etc’, ‘the love of mixing different textiles together just for fun’
Beach-y accents were: Pieces of Coral, Sea glass colored “message in a bottle” bottles, Air Plants (which look like it should be part of an underwater reef), Jute toppers (which gave you the illusion of sand)
Bohemian accents were: Metal Cut-out vessels and candle holders…of course we sprayed them all using earthy tones, Metal cut-out lanterns, vintage turquoise patterned ribbon, Earthy Colored Mercury Glass, Tissue Paper Pomanders, Satin Ribbon, Mosaic Vases…..
The tables were very eclectic, the flowers were mostly locally grown farm flowers, they got married in front of hanging tissue pomanders blowing in the wind, the aisle was create with mostly trailing ribbons…again…blowing in the wind, because that day was very windy!!!! It was a perfect day, a prefect setting, the perfect couple!
Take a look for yourself, as Henry from HenryShoots captured the day so beautifully!
