Be bold and let the groom come to you! So often you see first looks where the bride approaches behind the groom so we were pleasantly surprised to see it be changed up a bit this time, and it was still every ounce as touching and sweet as the more traditional route.

about the wedding decor

Event designer, Melissa Stewart created two scenes, the daytime, intimate table for four was set outside of The Inn using elegant vintage inspired floral salad plates from Peterson Party Center. Accented with gold chargers and flatware, it laid the foundation for a table designed with gilded cloche stands full of sumptuous florals laden with all the beauties of springtime such as poppies, peonies, and narcissus. Tucked beneath, terrariums were designed in glass cloches and gold succulents at each sitting.

The second scene is where Artistry designed the desert table staged in their colonial-chic sitting room. Playing off our need for summer and use of golds and yellows, there were beautiful cakes decorated with a sunny yellow ribbon and our gilded succulents and ferns.The lemon meringue pie and cupcakes were so perfectly executed by Artistry Catering & Events. The beautiful gowns were provided by Camilla’s of Arlington and the talent from Click Models in Boston.

Words from the Vendors

From Youri Claessens Photography:
Our inspiration has come from nature, in particular the sense of freedom and the colorful feelings that come with it. This together with spring fever, lots of love and an expansive palette of strong colors created the needed bohemian influences. A wedding where anything goes with an eye for detail.

Delicious homemade cakes decorate the table, surrounded by a diverse variety of salads and flowers. The bride is wearing a long flowing dress which compliments her figure and gives her all the freedom to move around. The colorful flowers and tiara in her hair are certain to catch anyone’s eye. The bride’s hair and makeup reflect her casual and fresh style. Her hair is loosely curled and makeup kept fairly natural with the occasional hint of shimmer and an emphasis on the bride’s eyes.
