Vintage Inspiration Shoot

Give me an inspiration shoot with rich gold and pink hues and you’ll see one very happy lady.  But add in one perfect detail after another from D.S.MeeBee Custom Event Design and Planning, an adorable real life duo and an entire gallery of lovely from Sam Haddix and, well… you just made my Wednesday.  See it all right here.

D.S.MeeBee Custom Event Design and Planning is a company that designs and creates custom weddings based on the unique qualities of the bride and groom. This shoot was designed and styled by Danielle from D.S.MeeBee. All of the wedding decor was handmade with love by Danielle. Every detail of this shoot is representative of the bride and groom in the photos. The cameos that are in the design of the shoot throughout are the bride and groom’s profiles. The custom cake toppers are made to look like the bride and groom and the custom base also was made to look like the life size frame that was used as a photo prop. The bouquet was made with fabric petals, vintage buttons, and broaches. The pink petals were made from the hems of the bridesmaids dress and the white petals were made from scraps from the bride’s mother’s wedding dress. The bride’s mother had passed away when she was 12 and it was important to her to have things that reminded her of her mother throughout her wedding. The bride’s mother’s wedding dress had been damaged from not being preserved correctly so Danielle from D.S.MeeBee used parts of the dress as the petals of the bouquet. The use of a hand painted peony in the menus, invitations, escort table, and signage was also in remembrance of the bride’s mother who always loved peonies.

So if you happen to be planning a fall fête, cozy up close to this Cambridge wedding Geneve Rege Photography, because it’s just as gorgeous as it gets. What makes it even better? It’s as personal as it is pretty, and you can see every last bit of it right here.

From the Bride… If I had to wrap up our wedding in one word, ‘personal’ would be it. Our generous and amazingly talented group of family and friends had a hand in nearly every part of the process. My husband’s uncle even married us! The weekend’s events all took place in our beloved home of Cambridge, Massachusetts, culminating in the reception– held inside the Cambridge Boat Club, a landmark we’ve come to know through our frequent jogs along the Charles River. The night didn’t go totally smoothly… my groom got a sudden migraine and had to leave our reception… but our guests rallied around us with love and support. He returned and slowly but surely came back to life and we felt humbled by the reminder that all this wedding ‘stuff’ is secondary to the commitment being honored and celebrated. Thanks to Geneve, you’d think it all went off without a hitch!

Cambridge City Hall Wedding from Hannah Persson Photo

Intimate, meaningful and simple – this wedding from Hannah Perrson warms my heart right up. There is something so special to me about a City Hall wedding, where the most important detail is the love of the newly married couple. It reads like a romantic comedy I would watch over and over again, or, in this case, a gallery of gorgeous images of that special day I get to look at over and over again. See it all here.

From Hannah PerrsonOk, this is one of my favorite weddings based purely on the smallness and simplicity and intimacy of the day. The bride, Grace, her mother, and her grandmother started the day at a beautiful salon in Boston, walked across the street to pick up the lone bouquet, and then proceeded to hail a cab to Cambridge for the wedding at Cambridge City Hall.  The guests stood around the couple as they said their vows in the ceremony that lasted maybe 5 minutes, and they cheered so loud afterward. The day was effortless and charming and felt like it was right out of a romantic movie.

From Megan Dandeles… We headed out from the city and into the gorgeous countryside surrounding Concord, Massachusetts for Meaghan and Kris’s farm inspired engagement session. Complete with a tractor, just-changing fall foliage and an just-picked wildflowers.

We had a perfect autumn afternoon, filled with gorgeous late afternoon light, for strolling through the fields and snuggling on farmhouse front porches. And of course being in love! Meaghan and Kris kept each other laughing and smiling all afternoon and it was just a joy to photograph.

New England Wedding at Hotel Marlowe from EFD Creative

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again…. your venue is the foundation for your big day. So when this couple came across Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge they knew it was the perfect stage for their travel-inspired celebration. Brought to us by the talented EFD Creative this romantic New England affair is filled with darling details (hellllooo hot air balloon invites!!!) and warm florals. It’s a journey that is best told by the beautiful images from LifeFusion Studio so join us right here in the gallery to explore even more.

From EFD Creative…Veronica and Greg are world travelers and wanted to bring those experiences to their wedding. Finding Hotel Marlowe was a perfect pick for the venue. The interior of the hotel and ballroom is designed with a modern eclectic feel with a whimsy of travel in the decor — compasses and world maps are part of the everyday decor… a perfect match.

We wanted to work with the hotel design and bring in Veronica and Greg’s travel elements. Place cards, menus and programs all had the travel theme with luggage, compasses, hot air balloons and more. The table names were of locations they visited world wide that had meaning for them. The cake design picked up on the patterns of the room, diamond shapes and criss crosses. Everything just came together!

From the Bride… Greg loves modern, minimalist styles and I am all about popping colors and antiques. Thank God we found Edna from EFD Creative! She had this incredible spark and managed to help us find a common vision for our special day, while putting together an amazing team of vendors. I am from three different countries and travel often. Moving has been a common pattern throughout my life. In the past three years, Greg and I have lived in 3 different states, and traveled to many new places. The theme of exploration and travel was just a natural one for both of us, and particularly fitting since most of our guests were coming from out of the country. The Marlowe Hotel in Cambridge was the perfect venue for us, as it combined the quirkiness I was looking for, with the more elegant and sophisticated concept that Greg wanted.

Our wedding was a labor of love; it was an incredibly special day, which was really a reflection of who we are. The crowd was quite eclectic with a mix of American, European and South American guests, and Joe Toto from Groove Events threw a fantastic dancing party that had even my grandmother dancing until the end!

What we will cherish forever is remembering how happy our friends and family were that day celebrating with us. Marina and Yi from LifeFusion Photography captured all those special looks, that tenderness and the love that was around. They did such a fantastic job that we want to print all the pictures they took! Melissa and Tom from Long Haul Films were quite incredible – I looked at the trailer of our wedding and it just made me cry. Those are memories that will stay with us forever. Edna is an amazing planner and a true friend. She put together a fantastic team of vendors who were not only super professional, but really great people. That was the best day of our lives!

Backyard Cambridge Wedding from Sweet Monday Photography

Look up personalized weddings and this right here will be the top result. No doubt about it. A backyard ceremony at the Groom’s magnificent family home, special handwritten notes by the Bride and Groom to every guest on each escort card, and Konditor Meister wedding cakes as numbers for each table that received their own private cake cutting…you’re reading right, lovelies. No detail went overlooked in this wedding from Sweet Monday Photography and not only is it unabashedly personal, it’s astonishingly beautiful to boot. Did I mention the Vera Wang AND Reem Acra wedding gowns? See it all here.

From Sweet Monday PhotographyNikki and Tamin met at Harvard Business School and currently live in San Francisco. They were super-excited to introduce all their Midwest and California friends and family to the Boston area. Tamin grew up in Cambridge with his three brothers, and their family home was the perfect venue for this classy, elegant wedding. We started with a first look at the Boston Public Library and then went to the Harvard Business School for some portraits before heading to Tamin’s home. We loved all the fountains and statues around the property, and Nikki found so many treasures in the basement that she dragged out to the backyard to add to the decor, including furniture, suitcases, typewriters, candelabras and books. All of the girls wore different white or cream dresses from Rent the Runway, and Nikki herself had two fabulous gowns: a ruffled Vera Wang and a pink Reem Acra for dancing the night away. Nikki’s sister (the maid of honor) and one of Tamin’s brothers (the best man) shared officiating duties, which made for a very special ceremony. The party was held in a gorgeous tent with the chandeliers revealing the shadows of the trees above. The food was delicious farm to fork catering, and we especially loved that the table numbers doubled as the cake. Nikki and Tamin went around and cut the first slice of cake for each of the tables, which was a great way to celebrate with each of their guests. The entire day was brilliantly coordinated by the lovely Adrienne and Elizabeth of Gracie Lou Events.
