Find your Inspiration: Vibrant Handmade Pillow
Inspiration can strike at anytime! It could be an amazingly vibrant wallpaper or maybe even an heirloom like a pillow your great grandmother crocheted. Whatever may strike your wedding fancy, roll with it! 
boston wedding flowers
{The Whimens Inspiration}: A beautifully vibrant handmade pillow (or cushion if you’re from England) 
{Colors}: Pink, Red, Orange, Yellow- Warm Tones.
{Tablescape}: We suggest keeping elements of the table (like the tablecloth, plates and utensils) simple and clean in tones of white or cream. Then you can bring in the pops of colors into the napkins and centerpieces so that the overall look isn’t drenched in color. 

{Florals}: Use simple apothecary jars with various brightly colored flowers. Let the flowers do all the work when it comes to color. I mean, seriously, just look at these colors! It’s like they got all dressed up for this occasion and boy, do we appreciate it. 

{Favors}: Keeping the handcrafted theme and inspiration in mind the couple had a friend make their own pale ale! We love when a couple enjoys seriously awesome craft beer especially when they give it as favors.

{Details}: If you have been sitting here wondering why the bride in this collage looks super familiar, it could be because it’s our one and only Natalie Pinney! And if you know Natalie, you understand her choice in bright colors and details! Her vibrant personality definitely comes though in all of her wedding photos (taken by the amazing Katie Noble). A little suggestion from the bride regarding the details of your wedding is to make sure that you let your photographer know that detail shots are important to you. They sure were important to Natalie and it shows!

Whim Events Featured on Style Me Pretty Massachusetts! We’re blushing!

We were beyond excited to get the news that Style Me Pretty Massachusetts (SMP) wanted to feature Whim’s very own Somerville wedding on their blog!   And as many of you know, this wedding has a special place in our hearts…. that’s because it’s my own wedding!  Yes, I’ve planned many wedding and events in my day, but honestly, nothing is quite as crazy as planning your own.  There was no question in my mind that Moira was going to design my flowers.  And in this case, I speak as a client and not as Whim, when I say, WOW.  When we walked into our wedding venue and saw beautiful garden flowers all over the room, my husband and I were in awe.  It was almost as if Moira had read my mind, got into my brain and handpicked every single flower I loved.   She transformed this quirky bowling alley space into something brighter and more beautiful than I could have ever imagined.   I will never forget that.  And I am thankful every single day for her awesomeness and intuitive sense of style and design at Whim.

Thank you to SMP, Katie Noble Photography (seriously amazing), my dear friend Jen O’Donnell at Cut Paste Love, Jen L.  for your crafty sense and DOC, Flatbread, Cordis Confections and our family and friends who made our day unforgettable.   We are enamored with you all!

Jori & Sean’s Somerville Wedding: Hurricane Irene Meets Her Match!

Looking at these photos, you would never guess that Jori and Sean’s colorful nuptials happened during the downpours of Hurricane Irene.  But that didn’t stop this awesome couple and their guests from having a blast!  The couple’s quirky and casual style made for a super fun and super relaxed day for everyone involved.  Jori and Sean are all about keeping it local, so it made perfect sense for them to have their wedding reception at Bloc 11 in Somerville,  steps from their Union Square home. And when we heard that Redbones BBQ was catering, we knew it was our kind of party!  Moira arranged the flowers and I was the day of coordinator, and we were thrilled to be involved!  We adored the DIY elements the bride’s mother created; from gingham table squares and tea lights, to personalized wine charm favors.  The bride’s father married the couple, the groom’s sister sang a heartfelt song at the ceremony, and each family member blessed the rings with warm wishes for the couple.   We don’t care what the weatherman said, it really was a beautiful day.
