From the warmth, happiness and bouts of laughter inside the Carnegie Institute for Science in Washington DC, you would never know that the weather outside was a rainy and blustery January day. Marleen and Brant, an epidemiologist and a high-level consultant in DC, chose to celebrate their fun quirkiness in every detail of the day. From lab beakers filled with in-season flowers from Local Color Florals, to Lego cufflinks and Fleuvog shoes, to Metro Station-themed table numbers, it was a celebration of all of the wonderful things that had made the couple who they are today and how they came to be. Hummingbird Bridal and Events couldn’t have been more honored and excited to be able to plan with such an amazingly silly, happy and truly loved couple.

Kristen and Rich remain one of the most wonderful, and most delightfully young-at-heart couples that we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. This particularly fun couple teamed up with Hummingbird Bridal to plan their wedding at the House of the Seven Gables, all the way from New Zealand! Through Skype meetings and emails, and the occasional in-person meetings, we planned a truly special wedding day that intimately celebrated the wonderful friends and family who surrounded this couple.
The day was, in its entirety, a completely perfect day. We are so lucky to have the chance to work with such kind, funny and creative clients, and this bride and groom most perfectly exemplify the reason that we became wedding planners.

On what was arguably the most beautiful day in September, we hosted a stunning wedding at Squantum Association, a hidden waterfront gem in Providence, Rhode Island. From in-season, locally-sourced florals from Bittersweet Gardens, to a delicious wedding cake from Sweet Tooth Bakery, and gorgeous photography from the incredibly fun and talented duo at Tyra Bleek Photography (Tyra and husband, Ryan,) the day was filled with gorgeous details that were so unique, and reflected all of the special memories and experiences that Jessica and Duncan shared. They sipped wine during the ceremony from their two favorite locations (Italy and South Africa) and they dined with silver forks engraved with special messages. They even had their wedding rings engraved with secret messages to one another. Every detail and element was as unique and special as it could possibly be, which made for a day that was wholly and completely about them.
It was a wonderful and amazing wedding that lasted well into the night. DJ Kevin Neary ended the party with Mama Cass’ “Words of Love” and guests departed for downtown for an awesome After Party that included watching the famous Waterfire show in Providence.
Special thanks to the amazing staff at Squantum Association, and Correntin Core, manager of Squantum, for taking such excellent care of all of the guests. And thanks to Inviting Company, for creating the most beautiful stationary we’ve yet seen.
