Dreamy Vineyard Wedding

“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….

OHEKA Castle Glamour in Grace Ormonde

Remember that magical wedding you dreamed of when you were little? Well, this is it!

Lisa and Justin’s wedding has all the luxuries of a fairytale wedding……draping chandelier crystals, cut out lace wedding day paper, the most elegant white and champagne florals, a white dance floor that makes you feel like your skating, Jimmy Choo shoes, an Ines Di Santos gown, Armani tuxedos…..and in a Castle to boot!

OHEKA Castle is a Gold Coast Mansion that transports you to a chateaux in France. It’s a popular backdrop for all types of media; in 1941, the motion picture Citizen Cane featuring Orson Welles was filmed here and more recent, Taylor Swift’s Black Space music video.

We aren’t the only ones that think this wedding is special…so does Grace Ormonde! That’s right! Lisa and Justin’s wedding graced the pages of Grace Ormonde’s Wedding Style Magazine Website and you can see it HERE!

There are simply now words that can describe this Glamorous wedding better than the images from Jaylim Studios.

Castle Hill ~ Newport, Rhode Island

Have flowers, will travel!!  Destination weddings are the new trend! And if you just happen to fall in love with US, even though we’re not located in the state that you’re getting married…NO PROBLEM!

We are at the forefront of this trend, as you can imagine, being a destination florist is not an easy task.  It takes years of experience to know how flowers behave, which ones can make the journey arranged or have to be designed on site, what materials work best….in some cases, we will use a local floral market or wholesaler that is located in the destination state.  Of course, it also takes a talented TEAM!

We have been very lucky to be the “traveling wedding florist” for a few years now.  However, 2013 was the busiest destination year as we have been to Long Island, Manhattan, Cape Cod, Maine (yes, a 9 hour drive to Maine…last town before the Canadian border!)  and of course, Newport, Rhode Island!

Which brings me to the awesomeness of Irina and Ben!  Oh, how I miss planning with them! Just so fun, easy going, trusting, stylish, charming, sweet…..I can go on and on….

Irina’s vision was simple yet fantastic! She and Ben wanted their ceremony to be understated (sometimes it’s better to just leave it to mother nature, as you’ll soon see) and wanted their reception to be romantic and magical with TONS of candlelight.

Newport itself can be magical…having and event at Castle Hill Inn even more magical.  The scenery is breathtaking and you can’t help but be in a good mood.  This was one of my favorite installations yet!  Think about it….a beautiful summer day, setting up with the ocean and cliffs right there, boats sailing, and everyone smiling……love my job!

Here are the beautiful photos by the ever-so talented Kevin Trimmer who was super fun to work with…a perfect match for Irina and Ben!

Before you see all the details of their wedding, I HAVE to show you how great my job truly is. Although most bride’s react this way when they see my bouquets (he he) Irina’s reaction was amazing!!!!

Margy and Mike at New Haven Lawn Club

This is one of my favorite weddings, so simple but so elegant!  Just like Margy!  Most of the planning and creating was done via email, skype and phone, since M and M were in Iraq for most of the months leading up to the wedding.

Rob at Correlation Productions‘ lighting was so amazing that the Ballroom at New Haven Lawn Club transformed every time he changed the colors.

Dawn’s Vintage – Romance Wedding

Dawn’s wedding looks like it jumped right off the page of a Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine….I should know…he he!  Loved designing this wedding because it was so simple with using all green and white florals, yet was very garden-y using mostly hand picked local farm flowers and of course vintage, due to the milk glass vases!  A romantic classic wedding that can designed for any time of year and at any venue!

Worked with the fabulous Ambiance {chic} Wedding Designs and Admire Designs LLC at the lovely Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station in Haddam CT.
