From the Bride… After spending lots of time on Pinterest and Etsy, I realized there would be nothing prettier than lots of coral on a beautiful June day. The bright coral J. Crew bridesmaids’ dresses became the swatch for all wedding plans. All of our vendors were from word of mouth. There’s nothing better than a great referral! Cambria Grace Photography was a given after seeing the wedding photo she had done for my friend. She obviously continued to do an amazing job with our photos and captured our day in such great detail. We picked DJ Carlos Russin after dancing the night away at another friend’s wedding. Great choice because our dance floor was never empty! The coral flowers from Charlotte Design were the definition of spring. The bouquets and centerpieces were beyond gorgeous. Spring Valley Country Club, with it’s cathedral ceilings, rustic chandeliers and whole wall of windows, created the best setting for this event. When I put on my Allure wedding dress everything became so real at that point. All the girls hopped on the trolley (totally recommend!), blasted “Going to the Chapel,” and headed to the church to see my handsome man! Our families and friends made for the greatest audience as Jay and I exchanged our vows and became Mr. and Mrs. Lamoureux. Everyone had such great energy the whole day and night as they enjoyed cocktails, dinner, and dancing. We took our favorite margarita and transformed it into a Lamoureux signature drink. “The Lamourita” was of course a big hit! The day was flawless from start to finish. It was the wedding we had always dreamed about and more. The best part at this point is that we can relive our big day, over and over, with our video from Oxford Media Films. Always a reminder that June 6th was beautiful.

SMP Blogger Bride: Finding the Perfect Bridal Accessories

Hi Brides! It’s Jessye from City Tonic again here to chat all about bridal accessories. So far, my experience with bridal fashion has been such a departure from how I handle fashion day-to-day. I chose the second dress I tried on – which is shocking to anyone who knows me, since I’m almost clinically indecisive. After making the big decision, I realized it was time to consider my bridal accessories as well – and, admittedly, this wasn’t an area in which I’d spent much time thinking.

I was lucky enough to meet Shannon Faretra at BHLDN in Chestnut Hill, MA – and she got me super excited about the fun, unexpected ways I could add accessories to my wedding day look. Since my dress hasn’t arrived yet, we thought it would make things interesting if I tried on gowns in a few different styles (really, who can say no to that?!) and play around with sundry hair pieces, veils and jewelry. It’s no surprise that BHLDN scores big across a huge range of styles, tastes and budgets – so I would definitely recommend a visit (either online, or to a store nearby) when you begin your search. Once my dress is finished, I’m planning a return to BHLDN so I can finalize what I’ll be wearing when I walk down the aisle. Of course, it’s always a good idea to buy your accessories and jewelry when you can see the big picture (i.e. how everything works in tandem with your gown).

In the meantime, my visit to BHLDN left me feeling inspired, and the gorgeous images from Jenny Moloney (see all my looks this way!) made me feel like a real bride. So… if you’re on the hunt for accessories, I hope this will offer some inspiration, too – whether you’re a vintage-loving bride, an enthusiast of all things clean and modern, or if you simply want to feel extra glam on your wedding day.

My biggest tip for all of you SMP brides-to-be? Keep an open mind. Even if your Pinterest boards are filled exclusively with structured birdcage veils, it never hurts to try something completely different – like a cathedral veil in weightless tulle. Either you’ll be able to rule it out confidently, or you’ll find yourself pleasantly surprised. Case in point: I had never considered wearing a crystal halo, but I ended up falling in love with that delicate hint of sparkle in my hair. It adds just enough glamour and romance without distracting from the rest of your look (even if you’re wearing an embellished gown).

It also really helps to work with a knowledgeable bridal stylist. I’m pretty confident when it comes to my personal style, but bridal fashion is an entirely new realm for me – so I was more than happy to defer to an expert. If you’re wearing a lace gown with lots of texture and detail (like the Gigi gown I tried on), your impulse might be to shy away from any intricate jewelry or additional texture. But in this case, Shannon suggested a vintage-inspired trapeze necklace and lace-edged veil which helped tie the whole look together without feeling too contrived or matchy-matchy. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns, shapes and textures – sometimes the most unexpected combinations are the best.

Overall, your bridal accessories are an area where you can infuse some personality into your look. As cheesy as it sounds, you’ll most likely be glowing with happiness on the big day – so those extra special touches will only help enhance how pretty you feel. See every look I tried on right this way!

Rustic Summer Wedding at The Barn at Gibbet Hill

There is just something about barn weddings that I don’t think I’ll ever tire of. The combination of rustic and romantic, the relaxed elegance of it all – and the photos always come out beautifully! Case in point, this summer celebration captured by Deborah Zoe, where the Bride and Groom beamed and the whole day was a pure dream. See every second right this way!

From Deborah Zoe Photography… RJ and Meredith are high school sweethearts who met in Spanish class over eight years ago. As Meredith describes it, RJ was the class clown who she wanted nothing to do with. But as soon as they started talking flirting, it was all over. They’ve been inseparable ever since!

When it came time to pick a venue for their wedding day, they knew the perfect spot, Gibbet Hill. Located in the town where they grew up and fell in love, it also had the approachable and rustic feel they were looking for. Meredith picked a delicate palette of creams to accent the day, including her amazingly beautiful ombre laced dress.

From the Bride… We searched near and far for the perfect elegant yet rustic venue. After months of looking without any luck, we realized nothing compared to Gibbet Hill in Groton, Massachusetts. Gibbet Hill is a restored barn that is located in our home town, where our love story began 10 years ago. While the venue is breathtaking, we especially loved that this venue was so close to home and our hearts.

The most special part of the day was being surrounded by our family and friends that have supported and loved us unconditionally. Having been together since high school, this wedding was a long time coming. The energy and excitement of our guests was palpable and we are so grateful for their love.

My goal was to incorporate details from my family members’ wedding days into my own wedding. I wore a family veil that my aunt first wore on her wedding day in 1978 and all my cousins have worn since. I also wore the pearls that my father gave to my mother on their wedding day. My most favorite decoration was a display I created with a picture of our grandparents and our parents on each of their wedding days.

My advice to brides planning their wedding day is “don’t sweat the small stuff.” At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is you are marrying your best friend and beginning your life together.” Enjoy every minute and take the time to soak it all in, it will be the best day of your life!

Dreamy Nautical Engagement Session in Rockport

Summer is here and the sunshine covered coast is calling, which is why we’re heading seaside thanks to the lens of Sarah Jayne Photography. Set in a charming town, this duo literally tied a knot in anticipation of their upcoming nuptials. Capturing a sweetly nautical yet perfectly preppy e-sesh, it’s New England at it’s finest and you can see every darling detail in the gallery!

From Sarah Jayne Photography… Katie and Tucker met on the sailing team at Roger Williams University, and have a shared love for the ocean. When it came to selecting a location for their engagement session, Rockport was a natural pick, with its charming seaside town, rocky coastline and sailboats dotting the harbor. These two are so natural together, and I just love the way Tucker is looking at Katie in all of these photos. What a beautiful couple, inside and out!

From Lynette Boyle PhotographyWhen Holly contacted me last year about photographing her and Brian’s wedding on the Cape, it was a no brainer to say yes. Having known the family personally for years and photographing Holly’s sister’s wedding, I knew I would be in for a good party. Holly and Brian met through mutual friends a few years ago, though ironically enough, Holly’s sister had knew the groom in college. She jokes that the first time Holly came to visit her for a long weekend in Boston (over 10 years ago), Brian was most likely in the same club! Though it didn’t happen that night, sparks eventually flew all those years later, and it wasn’t too long before Brian proposed.

Holly and Brian both have a classic, but contemporary style that just clicks. I’m pretty certain that even if they had not coordinated the maids and the men before hand, the bridal party would have looked flawless. They played off their gorgeous ocean front venue, Wequassett Resort and Golf Club, with a navy, blush, and gold color palette. They chose a bit of classic resort whimsy by including pineapples throughout their décor. Holly was a stunning bride in her Matthew Christopher gown. Her hair and makeup were absolutely classic…seriously, that hair! She even wore the same veil her sister wore two years ago on her wedding day. The maids’ long dresses ruffled softly in the ocean breeze, and the guys looked sharp in their classic navy suits, with just a pop of blush from their Vineyard Vines ties. Their florals were cream, white, and blush, and featured showstoppers like peonies and hydrangeas. Blush peonies adorned their four-tiered cake, which featured the same dove rings that appeared on Holly’s grandmother’s wedding cake.

Being organized was the key to making it easy for these two to let go and enjoy their celebration. Instead of spending time stressing out about little details, they made their important decisions early on and were happy to let their vendors take the wheel. This allowed them to be present with their guests, knowing that any small hiccups that might occur probably weren’t very important anyways. Their May wedding was absolutely perfect…sunny and warm with a light breeze, but most importantly, it was filled with their loved ones from near and far.

From Melissa Jill PhotographyNantucket Island is such a dreamy location, and I really wanted to highlight the beauty of it with this romantic wedding inspiration shoot. I drew all of my inspiration from the setting, which you can see in the colors we included – the muted neutrals of sand and stone, weathered grays and blues of the sea and the local homes, and pinks to echo the cherry blossoms that adorn the island. Our florist, Mary Kate with The Local Bouquet, created a lavish bouquet that reflects those colors and feels very organic. It is tied with a pale gray ribbon from FrouFrou Chic, with trailing ends that drift beautifully in the wind.

Speaking of the breeze, the Sarah Seven dress has a chiffon skirt that provides amazing movement in the sea air. The gentle flow of it makes our model Annamarie look absolutely ethereal.

The invitation suite, created by Jacki Miller with Foil & Ink, harmonizes perfectly with the historic lighthouse setting and with the color palette.

When I think of Nantucket, I always think of this lighthouse, Great Point Light. It sits at the very tip of the island, right where Nantucket Sound meets the ocean. There’s a loneliness and beauty about this remote lighthouse that makes it feel like the very soul of New England.
