Category Archives: Rustic Wedding
Meeting Jess and Patrick was like a breath of fresh air. They came to our studio at the recommendation of their planner, Kelli from Swank Events . We met in May to talk flowers for their August wedding at Gore Place, in Waltham.
Jess, Patrick and Jess’s mom (who was in from Cali) came to the studio. We instantly loved their laid back vibe. Patrick was such a great sport too, making jokes and sweetly teasing the girls. (Or wait, were we teasing him?) That particular day our studio was s filled with flowers for a wedding, so we “oohed” and “ahhed” over the blooms. The couple wasn’t sure what they wanted for flowers, but they knew they wanted something simple, rustic and fun. They liked the look of Lindsey & Brian’s wedding, with a bit more color. Their ceremony was in a huge field, with cocktail hour in the garden, and reception at the carriage house. And here’s what we loved most – they worked with Kelli to plan alfresco dining outside the carriage house…with a food truck. Moira instantly knew we had to do market lights around the tables and a variety of beautiful garden flowers. Moira took Jess and her mom to the market in July. They had a blast!
Jess and Patrick are such genuine people. A few days before the wedding, Patrick called to ask for another pin-on. At the end of the call, he asked: “Will we get to see you at the wedding? We definitely want you guys to stay for cocktail hour!” On the big day, Moira and I were hesitant to grab a drink in the middle of the party. Until we saw Jess’s mom, who hugged us and said, “Get in there! Get a drink! Jess and Patrick want to see you!” That settled it. We grabbed a drink, not really expecting the couple to have a moment to say hi to us. As soon we walked in, they came over to us as relaxed as ever, gave us big hugs and said,”Thank you so much for coming. And thank you for everything. It is exactly what we wanted!!” Ahh…a breath of fresh air.
Ok – so we’ve been super behind on the blog. It’s been a CRAZY month. 5 weddings. 2 features. 168 tears of joy cried for our happy couples. You get the gist. =D
We are so lucky to have amazing clients who love us for who we are. And we are so so blessed to work and collaborate with so many creative people every day!
Here are a few things that are beyond awesome about Kate and Trevor. First, the couple are both chefs in New England and spent the summer cooking on Nantucket. Secondly, they actually prepared all of the delicious food for their own wedding (as if they didn’t have enough to think about!) with local ingredients from their favorite local vendors . And thirdly, they had their yoga instructor marry them. Totally. freaking. cool. Oh and did we mention they got married at one of our favorite venues on the planet, the Overbrook House in Buzzards Bay? We can’t think of anything better than a gorgeous menu and a gorgeous venue! To quote their photographer, Geneve Rege, may this happy couple make many yummy meals together!
Moira is one of Kate’s best friends, so she was honored to do the floral design for Kate & Trevor’s big day..check it out..
When we first met Martha to discuss wedding flowers, we instantly fell in love with her friendly, relaxed vibe and her excitement to marry Steven in the quaint town of Wethersfield, CT. Her idea was to keep the flowers earthy and natural, with hints of blue and green Celtic elements. We loved that Martha had already grown her own potted plant centerpieces in preparation for the big day. And when we started discussing sprays of rosemary & lavender for additional decor, she squealed with delight! But what we really adored about Martha was her sincere happiness and her natural approach to the wedding celebration. She was happy to leave the floral details up to Moira and Mother Nature. So, when we delivered the flowers on her beautiful September wedding day and she cried tears of joy, that just made our hearts melt even more! Congrats to the happy couple!
