Wedding Revisited – Nan & Jim

You may remember our initial post (and the terribly lit photos from my little point-and-shoot) about Nan & Jim’s Boston wedding.  Jo from Jo Cush Photography was kind enough to provide these fabulous images from the October 16th celebration.  The couple blended tradition and their clean modern style for a stylish fall look that really comes through in these photos.

Simple but brilliant mango calla lilies were the theme of the bridal party for the ceremony at St Brigid Parish in South Boston.

The reception, held in the City Suites of the State Room in downtown Boston, boasted incredible views of the twinkling skyline.  The cocktail tables featured alternating tablescapes: low cylinders filled with vibrant mokara orchids with bloom scatter, as well as a trio of votives surrounded by blooms. 

The dining space was breathtaking.  Tall clear cylinders weighted by polished river stones sprouted branches full of natural fall foliage on half of the tables.  The other half displayed a trio of clear cylinders of varying heights filled with spiraled mokara orchids.  Every table had a scattering of the orange orchid blooms and twinkling votives.

Trish & Adam Married 10.30.10

We love repeat family business!  Trish’s sister Chrissy came to us for her very pink May wedding a while back and we were thrilled when Trish came back to plan her fall celebration.  One of eight siblings (six girls!), there have been plenty of weddings to celebrate in their family and everyone seemed cool, calm and collected when I delivered the bridal party flowers.

Adam’s family runs a working farm in the Concord, NH area so we added a touch of rustic charm to the flowers for their church wedding. 

oct30bouts The boutonnieres were wrapped in natural raffia and the mothers’ corsages had a wildflower look to them.  My favorite were the little ring bearers’ sturdy hypericum berry clusters.  Perfect for rowdy boys!

oct30bouquetsThe six bridesmaids carried matching bouquets in bright fall colors to match the bride.  The eldest of three flower girls carried a posy of cheery yellow mums, green hypericum berries, and red mini gerbers.  Her younger counterparts carried single stems of mango callas.

The reception was held at Camp Spaulding in their rustic event space.  The couple and their families did a great job of decorating the entrance with mums, pumpkins, and corn stalks from their farm.  Inside, tables featured a centerpiece with a bottle of wine with a custom label displaying one of their engagement photos.  We then scattered red and yellow mum blooms on each table to give them a subtle touch of color.

We also provided a small arrangement for the guest book table and the couple rented our reclaimed barn wood “reception” sign.

And, of course, I couldn’t leave town without visiting with a few of the farm’s young cows.  So cute and friendly!
