Ashton & Mike married at The Landing at Pine Point in Scarborough, Maine, this past August. Their wedding is full of quirky and awesome details, like wine cork boutonnieres and fun socks for the groomsmen. Our favorite aspect of the wedding, however, is that it combines such bold, vibrant colors with touches of a 1920-inspired Gatsby look. For instance, notice Ashton’s adorable headband and chunky pearl accessories. Peacock feathers make an appearance in the bouquets and table centerpieces, and gold accents dot the reception area. Most impressively, though, Ashton & Mike achieved a classy feel that still retained elements of DIY, making it feel elegant yet approachable. Wonderful job all around!

Congratulations to Ashton & Mike, and a huge thank you to Carrie Pellerin Photography for sharing these beautiful images!

    Quirky is definitely the right word to use, but I love it. The colours of the older and younger bridesmaid dresses really catch the eye. And the colour theme throughout the whole setting is just brilliant. Loving the lemonade pot idea.

Seaside Wedding at Laudholm Farm

November 10 • 2014

Sandy and Elliott married this October at the beautiful Laudholm Farm, a venue which boasts both ocean views and a rustic farm feel. Their photographer, Whitney from emilie inc. says it is “one of her favorite places to photograph, no matter the season.”

How they met, in their own words:

We met when we both lived in Washington, DC. It was Sandy’s last weekend in DC, before she was going to be moving up to Connecticut for the summer, and then off to Chicago for grad school. Sandy was out with her friends on Saturday night, at a VERY classy establishment (read: dive bar) called Millie & Al’s. Elliott was also there with a group of friends. Millie and Al’s has a very special feature – an over-sized light bulb behind the bar – when this light bulb goes on, Jello-shots are only $1 each! So naturally Elliott bought 20 of them…but then all but 2 of his friends left, so he had a lot of extra Jell-O shots. Elliott spied a cute redhead across the room, and generously offered his extra Jell-O shots to Sandy and her friends. Sandy, having spent an overwhelming amount of her college summers at concerts at the Hartford Meadows, was very accustomed to taking Jell-O shots from friendly strangers. We clicked right away, spent that night dancing and hanging out, and then saw each other every day for the next week. That Friday, Sandy even convinced Elliott to play hookie from work, and drive with her in a UHaul van from DC up to Connecticut! (As a tribute to our very classy first date, our wedding toast will feature both champagne and Jell-O shots!)

Our wedding planning and inspiration has centered around wanting to get together with all of our family and close friends, and have a great celebration! Naturally our priorities were to find a gorgeous venue, hire a fabulous live band, and of course provide great food (lobster!) and an open bar. The rest of the details can be characterized as understated, classic New England, while playing up the natural beauty of Laudholm.

Congratulations to the happy couple and a huge thank you to emilie inc. for sharing these love-filled photos! Check out more of emilie inc.’s photos on lulawed.com!

There are many things to love about this wedding: the bride’s lacy dress, the cute lobster details, the luxurious tent. Our favorite element of the wedding, though, is the striking bouquets and centerpieces made by Sweet Annie Floral Design. We love everything about them: the color scheme of light peaches, pinks, corals, and creams paired with navy, the dinner plate dahlias, and, maybe most of all, the succulents scattered around throughout all of the wedding decor. Fabulous job!

A huge thank you to Kivalo Photography for sharing these gorgeous detailed shots of the wedding. Enjoy!

We love that weddings are becoming more than just events; they are becoming an opportunity to express your uniqueness personalities. Don’t let that make you afraid or anxious! Think of your wedding as a party and plan it as an event you would be thrilled to attend.

Today we celebrate the idea of having your wedding at an art museum. These are not always the cheapest venues (often times the museum requires that you become a donor to the museum before you will be eligible to rent the space), but they can be some of the most colorful, quirky, and creative places imaginable. If a museum itself is out of your price range but you still crave being surrounded by vibrant art, consider reaching out to local galleries and art schools to see if they have a space that they are willing to consider renting out.

Below are some of our favorite art museums in New England (that allow weddings, as not all museums do.):

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum | Boston, MA

This museum is home to the incredible private collection of its namesake, Isabella Stewart Gardner. While the collection consists mostly of works by European masters and decorative arts, all displayed as Gardner intended in a specially constructed 15th century Venetian style villa, the museum itself is surrounded by a modern architectural shell composed of glass and steel. This makes the venue perfect for the couple who enjoys both the old and the new and interesting fusions between the two.

The deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum | Lincoln, MA

The deCordova is also a legacy of a 19th century collector, Julian de Cordova, the son of a Jamaican merchant. During the early 1900s, de Cordova remodeled his house to look like a European manor. Despite his stately manor, de Cordova was a collector of modern and contemporary art and celebrated living artists. The museum continues its founder’s vision with an eclectic mix of artwork scattered upon its grounds and within its walls.

MASS MoCA (Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art) | North Adams, MA

A converted factory, MASS MoCa retains a feeling of industry in its vast complex (it boasts over 20 buildings!, though not all are open to the public). It is home to one of the largest galleries in the world (it’s over the size of a football field), and because of this, it hosts some of the most unusual and massive exhibits in the country. Its expansive grounds give ample opportunity to host both the ceremony and reception onsite, and its ongoing 25-year Sol Lewitt installation is sure to provide some colorful and memorable photo backdrops. A big benefit of MASS MoCA is that they allow you to hold the actual ceremony in certain art galleries, such as the Sol Lewitt galleries.

ICA (Institute of Contemporary Art) | Boston, MA

If you’re a fan of all things contemporary, the ICA might be your perfect venue. The ICA embraces all types of art: visual arts, film, performance, literature, and video, and is truly at the forefront of exploring new visual ideas. It’s event spaces are somewhat limited (and you’re required to rent out the whole museum), but it does have the benefit of being located in Boston proper.

Ogunquit Museum of American Art | Ogunquit, ME

The Ogunquit is the only museum in Maine devoted exclusively to the exhibition and preservation of American Art and is a true champion of Maine artists, both past and current. It has seaside gardens, a reflection pool, and is located right on the coast, making it a good fit for couples who desire a seaside ceremony.

Shelburne Museum | Shelburne, VT

Nestled in Vermont’s Lake Champion Valley, the Shelburne celebrates unconventional art and Americana, which is reflected in its unusual and eclectic building styles and event locations. You can even hold your reception in an old boat! The Shelburne is especially well known for folk art, decorative arts, and furniture from the 17th-20th centuries.

Emily & Patrick chose to have their wedding at the Wychmere Beach Club in Harwich Port, MA. The Wychmere is a Longwood Events property that recenlty underwent a stunning restoration. Their photographer, Emilie from emilie inc., shares a few words about their day:

These two had the same easy connection that I had seen months prior,
something you find after being together as long as these two have, and
more importantly, being the absolute right one for the other.

All of Emily and Pat’s waiting and planning paid off.  It was a wedding
10 years in the making, a long way back to their college days at
University of Michigan where they met on that fateful first day of
freshman orientation.  Their wedding was full of everything they wanted
“happy tears, dancing, good food, and great company!”  I even got to see
Arabic line dancing for the first time!  I am ecstatic for these two,
and am so happy I could document this part of their lives as they embark
on the next 10 years together that are bound to be filled with new
excitement.  I hope I get to witness that, too.

Congratulations to Emily & Patrick, and thank you to emilie inc. for sharing these beautiful photos!
