From The Bride…I grew up in a tiny suburb of Boston, Luke in Charlotte, NC. We met by chance when we were fourteen years old. Luke’s best friend from Charlotte, Justin, moved to my hometown during Freshman year of high school, we became friends, and Luke came up to visit him during the Spring. I remember Justin’s mom coming to pick me up and climbing into the back seat of her car and Luke sitting there. He was cute, with crooked teeth and wearing a Saves the Day tee shirt. I said “Hi Luke” and he, nervously, said nothing back. We spent the next few hours not speaking to each other, I pretty much didn’t speak at all the entire afternoon and made up an excuse that I had a project to do so Justin’s mom would bring me home. My friend Jess and I took a walk that afternoon and I remember telling her all about Luke, even though we literally had not spoken to one another. He happened to have the guts to talk to me on AIM, and it went from there (the original online relationship!). We became super close talking online, and we would talk on the phone for hours. Every time he came to visit Justin, it would be like starting from zero. We were so scared of each other. We had our first kiss when we were 16 in the back seat of a van full of people.

This is a really long story, how 14 years later we are married (there was a lot of time in there that we were not in touch), but fast forward to the summer of 2008, when Luke moved to New York, I was in school at the time. We never really said we were together, we just haven’t been apart since. Luke proposed to me in August of 2014 when we were in Italy on vacation. I had been on Cape Cod the weekend before with my mom, and she said to me “I wonder if he will propose to you,” which I jokingly repeated to Luke. He just responded, “I’m really sorry but you planned this trip.” I KNEW it wasn’t happening. When it did happen, we were on the side of the Arno in Florence, wandering around after dinner the second night of our trip; it was incredible, and a total surprise. The vacation felt like a honeymoon!

I wanted to get married pretty quickly, we planned the wedding for only 9 months. Everything fell into place really easily. Fruitlands Museum was the first venue we looked at, a recommendation from one of my moms patients. It is so beautiful and the people that run it are amazing. Planning our reception there couldn’t have been easier. Our ceremony was at the small church that my parents go to, it was really relaxed and pretty. There were so many details that just fell into place, which looking back I am so grateful for.

An Interior Designer’s Cape Cod Wedding with To-Die-For Nautical Details

When this gorgeous Cape Cod wedding first came across my desk, I had to do a double take to make sure it was a real wedding and not a photo shoot because it’s that pretty. But that’s no surprise considering this beautiful Bride is an interior designer. From the hanging sailboat to the scattered seashells throughout, this wedding is the definition of nautical glamour. See it all from Arielle Doneson Photography in The Vault!

Nautical

From Arielle Doneson PhotographyElizabeth and Peter met on the Cape, where Elizabeth grew up and Peter spent much of his youth. The Provincetown monument was the perfect backdrop for their nuptials as it offered a stunning 360 view of their beloved cape. As an interior designer with a discerning eye, Elizabeth styled the day to perfection with nautical objéts curated from her travels. The day started out a gray and rainy one but by the time the ceremony began it was a perfectly glorious Cape Cod day – just a photographer’s dream.

This is How You Weave a Touch of Copper in Your Wedding!

I’ll always and forever be a gold kind of girl, but I’d also be crazy to not love this season’s hottest metallic trend – copper. Think of it as gold’s stylish little sister with just the right amount of edge to step up any wedding palette. Vendors Deborah ZoeShannon GrantRomanticist Studio and Beach Plum Floral Design showed us how it’s done, and there’s lots more inspiration sitting in The Vault.

From Deborah Zoe PhotoWedding photographers, Shannon Grant and Deborah Zoe, along with a super-talented creative team collaborated together on this “Industrial Romance” inspiration shoot geared towards brides planning a modern spring wedding in Boston.

“We really wanted to evoke the sense of two becoming one by combining the soft femininity of a romantic style paired with the hard edges of an industrial space. Styled by Roberta of The Romanticist Studios, each detail was perfectly paired to have a beautiful balanced look, a fitting metaphor for marriage.

It was important to us that the details felt fashion-forward and editorial and that they represented the concept of industrial romance well. We were also enamored with the 2016 Pantone color choices and wanted to weave them into the shoot in a unique way. we decided to pair Rose Quartz and blush along with pops of Fiesta Red and copper accents. It was a color palette that felt fresh and modern to us while also giving a nod to the more feminine and classic colors of blush and pink. Incorporating the metal accents through the use of copper was a fun twist as well.

The shiny escort cards were hand cut from copper plates and lettered with an airy, white calligraphy font penned by Yennygrams. The invitation suite features blush toned paper, muted red watercolors and copper acrylic ink.

Beach Plum Floral installed a dramatic garland made of seeded eucalyptus with pops of bright red anemones, ranunculus, soft blush roses, lisianthus and subtle touches of peach colored Juliet garden roses and incorporated these same touches in the bouquet. The pops of fiesta red anemones and ranunculus were the perfect unexpected touch to these romantic arrangements. Red and peach silk ribbons were cut long to catch the air and float along with our bride.

Voted Best New Venue by the Venue Report, Warehouse XI provided the industrial backdrop with their loft-like, raw white space and natural light. Be Our Guest finished off the space with a romantic and industrial table setting with a mix of soft, organic materials and structured man-made silhouette. The pink tulle from was intentionally left raw and hand crafted with unfinished edges to showcase the linen’s organic texture and lend to it a sense of movement. The effect is as if the tulle is spilling out of the galvanized metal lid and it’s the perfect finishing element. It balances the femininity of tulle with a clean, polished manner.

Hair that moves styled a loose and wavy up-do to compliment the shoot’s romantic vibe while Amanda McCarthy Beauty gave our Bride a fresh and dewy glow with just the right amount of pop of pink on the lips. Flair Boston picked the perfect gown to accompany the shoot with a tulle gown by designer Aria.

When it came to dessert, we knew we definitely wanted to include a sampling of a local favorite, Union Square donuts. Not only are they delicious but we’ve noticed unique treats like donuts are a growing wedding day trend! In addition to the donut spread we also wanted to feature cake but in a modern and fresh way. Artisan Bake Shop ran with the industrial romance theme and created two unique cakes, one covered with a metallic copper hand painted fondant and the other was a delicious naked cake, topped with powdered sugar, and draped with the softest blooms.
