Alex & Teddy 8.11.12

With coffee in hand and an empty belly, Rebecca and I packed the van at the crack of dawn...summer fog hovered over the mountains as we drove down twisty back roads, past crumbling barns and cemeteries hidden by 100 year old maples. A breakfast wedding? I remember asking in our original consultation. Originally I thought it was totally bizarre....but once I saw the tent, with the most amazing view and the fogg hovering over the mountains, I finally understood what we were doing there at 8am. I was told that I should try and make everything look etherial...places where fairies would romp. Consider it done.

I collected these feathers while drinking at a friends house while trying to avoid having my toes bitten off by a gaggle of geese...and a few handsome ducks.

The bridesmaids carried pink and wore the softest shade of aqua with a tiny tinge of gray.

Elizabeth and Arjun 7.28.12

Elizabeth (aka Scotty) and Arjun's wedding was a huge education for us all. The joining of two families from two very different backgrounds. A blend of Scottish traditions such as kilts and bagpipes with traditional Hindu wedding elements. For me it was a wonderfully interesting lesson in cultural traditions I was so unaware of. The blending of two families ideas of what a wedding celebration meant brought us to a final product of a traditional hindu ceremony with elements of rustic Vermont. The colors were softer then the expected reds, oranges and pinks, moss covered the tables...and yet there was henna, a Vermont version of a mandap, rice, and lots and lots of gorgeous saris.

Because there was no bouquets, I was given the opportunity to make ropes of flowers for the bride and groom to wear. These were like making huge beaded necklaces, so much fun!

"Hey Rebecca...how do we show people how big this thing is!?" Oh wait...10' later...

Booze on every table...what a way to start the party.

Who knew the aftermath of a hindu ceremony included neon balls? I've come to the conclusion that  every wedding should end with neon balls.

Maureen & Eric 7.28.12

It rained, it was sunny, it was hot, it was cold...foggy, and bright...the 28th of July included a little bit of everything, including one of the most fun weddings we've done in awhile. With the help of the super fabulous Kristin of By Emily B. Event Design Maureen and Eric's wedding was over the top awesome. Giant Geronimo balloons, fabbbbbbbbulous linens, and the smallest of awesome details...and well, some pretty super duper flowers. (If I may say so myself)

A stunner for Maureen, made of the softest peaches, blush pinks and greens...

Ever wonder what our out takes look like? Well...check out that face, it just screams romance.
