Inspiration: Cobalt Blue

August 29 • 2014

We’re totally in love with a cobalt blue and white color scheme for a classic, elegant coastal wedding. For the rehearsal dinner, try out something like  the Alfred Sung dress pictured in the upper right paired with big single pearl studs or cobalt teardrop earrings like the ones below. And then go subtly bold during your ceremony by wearing something like that amazing Dior dress. It has a classic cut but wows with the hidden china-plate pattern on the skirt’s interior. Translucent cobalt vases or salad plates bring the rich color to table without being overwhelming.

Love Story of Loren and Shawn

August 27 • 2014

Loren and Shawn tied the knot at the beach this June on Drakes Island. Loren chose a classic strapless wedding dress and refined jewelry that showed off her elegant side. Her vibrant magenta peonies brought pizzaz to her outfit while still maintaining a clean look overall. This sophisticated air continued throughout the rest of the wedding decor, which boasted nautical-themed accents such as an anchor cornhole set and cobalt cording that twisted its way around the wedding cake. Congrats to the happy couple and thank you to emilie inc. for the beautiful photos!

Things that make us happy: weddings, New England, and locally-sourced products. That’s why we were thrilled when we discovered B&ME Woodworking’s lobster trap wedding card holders! B&ME is a family-run woodworking company that makes all of its products from wood harvested directly from the family’s own property and from surrounding Maine properties. The company makes a variety of products, but, for us, the decorative lobster trap wedding card holders definitely take the cake! The lobster traps come in two different sizes, the smaller size holding up to 90 cards and the larger size holding over 200. No matter how many guests you have, you’ll be sure to be covered! The traps come unstained, giving you the option to fully customize them for your wedding and ensure that they perfectly match the rest of your decor.

According to Barry, B&ME’s owner, the idea to use the lobster traps in weddings came about from a suggestion from his wife, Debra. The lobster trap holder made it’s first debut in the couple’s daughter’s wedding, and the rest is history. To date, they have sold more than a thousand of the traps for weddings! Added bonus, the traps make a great decorative item for your home after the wedding is done, too!

B&ME also offers other nautical products, such as clam hod condiment holders, that perfectly compliment the lobster trap. B&ME Woodworking

Love Story of Deirdre & Glen

August 20 • 2014

Deirdre & Glen said their vows this spring at the Andover Country Club in Andover, MA. Though the weather that day was gloomy, the couple refused to let it rain on their parade and continued with their wedding plans undeterred.

According to their photography studio, Match Made Studios:

The hidden nooks around Andover Country Club provided some great photo opportunities that may have been overlooked on a good day.  The ceremony was officiated by Deirdre’s aunt who also doubled as the florist. Check out those amazing centerpieces!

We couldn’t agree more. The beautiful bouquets were topped only by how radiant the couple looked. Thank you to Deirdre & Glen for providing proof that your wedding day can be great, no matter what the weather is, and a huge thanks to Match Made Studios for sharing these glowing images.

Inspiration: Lavender & Gray

August 15 • 2014

We love the lavender and gray color scheme! And with lavender continuing to bloom throughout August in New England, it is a perfect color scheme for those later summer weddings. The great thing about lavender, too, is that it can be paired with warmer colors such as creams and golds, tipping it towards a more rustic feel, or it can be paired with silvers and gray greens, like below, making it perfect for beach and coastal settings.

Love Story of Phoebe & Greg

August 13 • 2014

Phoebe & Greg celebrated their wedding on Plum Island in Massachusetts. Their DIY wedding is a great showcase of how to combine warm, bright colors with a coastal locale. Phoebe’s bouquet was composed of yellows, reds, and oranges and provided a striking contrast with her kids’ deep purple dresses. While the wedding’s purple elements blended nicely with the coastal beach scene where the ceremony took place, the inclusion of the warm-colored bouquet and accents allowed for an easy transition into a more warmly-toned reception decor based around browns and fall accent colors. Congratulations to Phoebe & Greg and a huge thanks to Michael Desmond Cox Photography for sharing his wonderful images with us!
