Bright Magenta Vineyard Wedding

With the chill of early winter settling into Boston, I’m welcoming this bright, sunny lovefest, with a giddy grin and open arms. It’s chock-full of colorful details, and killer floral moments by Isari Flower Studio that’ll have you pinning like nobodies business.  We Heart Photography snapped up the goodies, and you can watch the day unfold over here in the gallery.


From Luxe Events….Vita & Simon came to us wishing for a Garden Bohemian wedding design with some Moroccan influenced undertones. The rustic vineyard was the perfect backdrop to bring in color and gardeny goodness. To create the effortless but fancied up boho look we mixed unique elements such as colored goblets, crystal vases, brassy urns and and candlesticks holding vibrant jewel tone flowers and lush greenery. Stunning patterned linens in shades of gray, dusty lavender, and cream host the colorful table settings. Dark wood chairs, vintage wood handled utensils, and the rustic vineyard itself add a masculine balance to the bright color palette. We wanted some fancier finishes on the settings, and selected gold rimmed wine glasses and chargers to amp up the fancy factor. Vita had a vision for a unique chandelier. When we could not find just the right thing we enlisted Tam to create the perfect addition to the wedding, a stunning bougainvillea filled floral chandelier that serves as the centerpiece of the reception.

From Isari Flower StudioVita wanted to be standing under a rustic arbor dripping with vines and bougainvilleas, she selected one of our that was featured on SMP, a beach stylize photo shoot, which looks so dreamy. However once we knew she was exchanging her vow in front of that rolling hills and vineyard back drop of Orfila it was going to be magical! Befitting the landscape yet bold enough that it lends a beautiful focal during the ceremony, the 2 aisle entrance arrangements was also an interpretation of a large combination of similar theme blooms to welcome guests and wedding party to frame.

The reception area in the tent emphasize a bohemian yet regal vibe, with her color choices of bold purples using summer dahlias, magenta shade clematis, ruffled garden roses, deep and saturated late summer hydrangeas, hot pink roses lush greeneries off set with peach shade spray roses, trailing vines and berries for textural interest. The eclectic long table scape of multiple pieces of silver and gold elegant vintage goblets, containers, pitchers etc. combined with silver and Florentine trays surrounded with gold kissed votive cups add a touch of european romance to the evening. The large floral wreath hanging from the center of the dance floor, and the dessert table spread with florals and vines ends the evening on a rustic note.

Rustic Elegance at Holman Ranch

This wedding is stunning. It’s the kind of wedding that will stick with you for hours, if not days – all the beautiful rustic, yet elegant details dancing in your head until you’ve pinned every beautiful image from Carlie Statsky in this gallery. It’s easy to get lost in the stunning florals from Fionna Floral or the one-of-a-kind setting of the Holman Ranch, but then when you dig a little deeper and get into the soul and story of this wedding, you realize it’s so much more beautiful than you could have every imagined.


From The Bride…Our relationship is unique and in some ways unbelievable. We have had the pleasure of being in each other’s lives since the age of five as we went to kindergarten through eighth grade together. We also have had some similar misfortunes that have given us an understanding for each other that other couples may not have. Our sisters were both in traumatic accidents that have left them paralyzed. While they are the toughest people we know, having an understanding of what each other’s families have gone through gives us all a bond that many families don’t have. It does not define any of our lives but it has created a kinship amongst the two families and is one of the many reasons why the Moriarty and the Cimino families can seamlessly come together as one. Even our sisters think of each other as sisters, which they get very disappointed when you tell them that is not exactly how it works. However, if we mention them we must mention the amazing support that our parents have given all of their children. From our sweet selfless mothers that are quietly handling all behind the scenes to our unwavering fathers who’s poignant words are always said at just the right time. These people especially have made “Mike and Renee” an easy thing.

A good man has always told us “classy never goes out of style” this was continuously on our minds as we envisioned our picturesque ceremony, and created the romantically elegant reception, which turned into an all out love fest. The vision was ever evolving throughout the planning process, but the overall theme was to put Holman Ranch center stage with subtle or maybe not so subtle touches of extravagance to set the day apart. We included special sentimental touches like having the vintage car Renee’s parents drove away in at their wedding in the background, fabric hearts sewn on blankets for the guests made from our grade school uniform pattern, and Mike’s ring being made to match his dad’s ring. We always kept our guests in mind and did our best to make sure there was something for everyone. Our goal was always to have everyone leave with a full belly and a huge smile on their face. A big thanks to all of our vendors and Amy Byrd’s team for making our vision come to fruition!
