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.
July 14: The bride insisted that they walk in to an acoustic version of Tiffany’s “I Think We’re Alone Now.” The groom rocked a lovely chapeau and complementary beard. Fresh-spun cotton candy was on the menu, and with a puppy ring bearer on-site, there was NO WAY that this wedding would be “just another wedding.” (continue reading…)
This was one of our favorite Boston weddings EVER!
These two adorable musicians met in the midst of the Boston rock scene, which as anyone in said scene will tell you, is a community of friends and supporters who all seem to know one another. As such, this wedding day was not merely the joining of this couple, or the joining of two families, it was a massive celebration of love, music and friendship, as seemingly every guest in attendance knew every other guest. This was more than a wedding – it was a reunion of friends and a time to dance, sing and party the night away.
Guests stayed at Essex Conference Center (Essex, MA) for the entire weekend, making a vacation out of this joyous event. After check-in, everyone was invited to enjoy beer and sangria in the lush yard as they played lawn games to the tune of a fantastic Bluegrass Band (Dimitri Eleftherakis and the Sturdy Oaks Bluegrass Band.)
As the sun hung lower in the sky, guests seated themselves around the stream that flows through ECC, and to the tune of a bagpiper, the groom lead the way with flowing ribbons tied to chuppah poles. And under this chuppah, built by the hands of the groom’s mother and father, the viking groom married the Scottish bride and together, as husband and wife, they recessed to the tune of “Scotland the Brave.”
Guests partied the night away in a tent, while gentle breezes blew through the forest surrounding the venue. And after the last tune faded into the night, a bonfire was lit and lyric sheets were handed out for campfire songs and s’mores.
Even the vendors (like the Ipswich Tap Truck and Steven Pugliese Perspectives Photography) commented that this was one of the best and most fun weddings they had ever been to. You can rest assured that when your vendors are deeply impressed, you’ve planned an amazing wedding. Congratulations again to Erin and Eliahu! We couldn’t love you guys more!
We still can’t watch this video through without crying happy tears. Congratulations again to the gorgeous Kristen and the incredibly sweet and kind Jason! We adored planning with you and are so grateful to work with wonderful clients like yourselves.
Thanks again to The Barn at Gibbet Hill for hosting and catering such an exquisite event. Thanks to Melissa Coe Photography, Artistic Wedding Video (for the beautiful video above,) the fantastic Hummingbird Bridal Team and the awesome Frugal Flowers who were so gracious in helping us assemble an awesome guest lounge out of hay bales, wine barrels and hand woven pillows.
Can you imagine the most perfect New England day? The air is warm but not hot. The leaves have started to turn and the air smells like apples. There’s even a gentle breeze blowing across rolling hills. It’s like something out of a storybook, only this time, it is the exact setting for Katie and Jeff’s wedding day. Katie and Jeff got married at The Wayside Inn in Sudbury, Massachusetts, on arguably the most perfect day in New England history. From the moment Katie woke up at the Wayside Carriage House, until the last guest had taken the shuttle to the After Party, it was a night of relaxed elegance. The Martha-May Chapel set the stage for a beautiful ceremony, followed by photos at the picturesque backdrop of the grist mill, and then an evening of exceptional dining and dancing at the Wayside Inn.
