One of the most popular wedding trends in 2014 is watercolor, from wedding invites to cakes and everything in between, and I for one am LOVING it. Watercolor details just seem to overflow with romance, whimsy and gorgeous color. One of the best things about this trend is that it can fit into almost any theme, from rustic with lighter, more romantic colors to modern using brighter colors paired with black and white details. This trend is sure to find it’s place in future wedding seasons.
This exquisite wedding made us yearn for warmer days. Katie and Gui said “I do” on a picture perfect late summer day, with the water set as their backdrop at a private residence in Jamestown, RI. This gorgeous summer wedding gave way to cocktails enjoyed outside on the oceans edge with beautiful blue and white ikat patterned linens. The ambiance was enhanced as dinner and dancing continued under a Sperry tent, rich with lush textures and romantic creams and blushes. The linens on the tables were breathtaking rosettes that mirrored the bottom of the bride’s gown. Guests could take a break from dancing and enjoy a drink and conversation on one of the velvet couches surrounding the dance floor. No detail was left unturned at this romance filled wedding, some of the top details were the perfect shade of purple bed of hydrangeas that the guest cards were placed on, patterned flip flops for the guests tired dancing feet, crystal chandelier hanging from the tent top and the most beautiful flowers from the bouquets to the centerpieces designed by Hana Floral Design. One of our favorite parts of this show-stopping wedding was the stunning sunset that painted the sky pink, the perfect gift for the newlyweds to enjoy on their wedding night! Leila Brewster captured the beauty of this wedding perfectly!
Maybe I’ve seen too many Lifetime movies or a few too many war documentaries with lost love letters, but those stories always warm my heart. So perhaps for Valentine’s Day, instead of a Hallmark greeting, we should write a love letter. In our techy lives, actually writing a letter on paper is a lost art. A love letter is tangible. It can be cherished forever and read over and over again. It also means the writer has to sit down and actually take pen in hand, and maybe throw a draft or 2 away. It also makes the lover actually think hard about their words (and not use the default thesaurus) and not just tap, tap away. So this Valentine’s Day, write a letter or tell your loved one that’s what you’d like (along with the thoughtful gift!)
We are so excited when we get to throw a party with some of our favorite people, especially when it’s to celebrate and meet industry professionals. We were lucky enough to co-host The Knot Market Mixer party with our friends at The Knot! It was a masquerade ball theme and held at the gorgeous ROIA Restaurant. We decked the party with purple sequin linens, mercury glass votives, metallic details, and Hana Floral brought in the most beautiful lush flower arrangements to top off the entire look. It was such a lovely night, filled with good food, good music, and even better company. Thanks to The Knot and everyone who came out to party!
