From Kate Dawson EventsIn the midst of this never ending New England winter, we were inspired by the uplifting combination sunshine, crisp whites and yummy citrus flavors! Back in August, Kelsey, Morgan and I were inspired by the beautiful artwork of one of our brides, Natalia Wrobel, and we took her breathtaking watercolors as the inspiration for the shoot. We coupled that with a clean, white (and sometimes snowy!) back drop to create this bright, modern event. We worked with all local Vermont and New Hampshire vendors to bring this inspiration to life.

Morgan at Valley Flower Company brought the vision to life through her florals creations of amaryllis, mimosas, ranunculas and parrot tulips. She injecting the vibrant blooms with juicy citrus. The awesome centerpiece popped against the white table and ghost chairs.

I then added touches of white fur and mango velvet reminding us that even in the sundrenched space, that the chilly temperatures weren’t too far away!

Christa Alexandra Designs was the mastermind behind the amazing invitation suite. The acrylic invitation was the focal point (obsessed!) and Christa took Natalia’s watercolors and incorporated them into the remainder of the suite – from the envelope liner to the wine bottle label and signature drink signs.

Our beautiful model wore a sleek shift dress and white pumps with a nod to the mod feel of the shoot. Her earrings (and bright lips!) added the pop of color that was such an important piece of the theme. Her look really came to life when she added a white fur jacket and Kelsey captured her against stark white snow banks. The bouquet she carried was a work of art, bright and lively, wrapped with hand dyed ribbon, velvet and beads.

A to Z cakes took our simple direction “modern, watercolor, brights” and made a cake that was way above our expectations! Our signature drinks incorporated the winter citrus flavors of blood oranges and grapefruit. To top off our dessert/drink buffet Sweetie Pie cookies made beautiful gem shaped cookies (that tasted even better than they looked) Our favors were sugary citrus slices.

Kelsey DeWitt captured the event in the most magical way! The bright light of the space was the perfect canvas for her whimsical, glowy, happy images!

A chilly + snowy weekend in New England is most definitely in need of some sunshine, so we’re delivering it the best way we know how: with a fab introduction to Lynne Reznick Photography, a talented photog that knows a thing or two about capturing the pretty. Think drop-dead gorgeous images filled with those heartwarming moments you’ll want to cherish for always.  Take a look at her stunning work below…

From Lynne Reznick PhotographyI chose the tagline “A fresh perspective for your classic love story” for my business because it truly embodies the way that I work and what I aim to capture for every couple I photograph. Each couple’s story is different and the detailed planning of every wedding story deserves to be honored. That said, some of my favorite images are the ones where the unplanned happened and it is was lovely, or adorable, or quietly full of emotion. By capturing the moments big and small, expected and unexpected, I seek to tell each couple’s unique love story as it unfolds and share in a whole lot of love and laughter along the way.

Welcome to the family, Lynne Reznick Photography!  We are so happy to have you! xo

Whimsical Summer Camp Forest Wedding

Loved ones gathered at Windsor Mountain for a weekend filled with waterfront adventures and a laid back spirited affair. From hand-dyed napkins, to heirloom antlers, to the hand painted invitations, to Wild Folk Studio blooms crafted by the Bride herself, every aspect was rustic chic perfection. Complete with laughter filled vows and a sweet walk down the aisle, Cambria Grace captured every moment here!

From the beautiful Bride… Mark and I wanted our magical forest wedding to be a celebration of the community we created together, our friends and families, not just us. The idea was to have a place where everyone could stay for the entire weekend, have adventures, campfires, and get to know each other. Since we spend a lot of time in New Hampshire camping and hiking, we also got engaged in the White Mountains, a summer camp was the perfect fit. We were going for a laid back, non-traditional, but spirited vibe; a weekend that genuinely reflected us, and that’s exactly what we achieved.

Every aspect of our wedding was created, designed and built by us or our friends and family. Since I am a floral designer in Boston, I decided to do all of my own wedding flowers, with the help of some good souls that were willing to get a bit dirty. I transformed the reception area from a camp dining hall to a magical forest wedding with wild, nature inspired floral arrangements in wood bowls, hundreds of feet of garland draped from the ceiling, and warmed up the space with locally made tapered candles in vintage brass candlesticks. I wanted the napkins to look worn and be different shades of blue. The only way to achieve this look without breaking the budget was to hand-dye the napkins. The finishing touch on the tables were antlers that belonged to Mark’s grandfather.

Many of our loved ones contributed to making our wedding weekend exceptional, from my sister-in-law Megan hand painting our wedding invitations, to our friend Jon marrying us, to our friend Brooke waking up before the sun to help me with florals. And that’s just to name a couple. It was truly a collaboration.

We lucked out with the most beautiful 80 degree fall weekend, while the leaves were in full color. All of our guests were able to take advantage of the waterfront. We swam, kayaked, and canoed.

One detail that was really important to me was to walk down the aisle by myself. My older brother, Alex, passed away when I was in college, and I always envisioned him walking me down. It was my way of honoring him. I was incredibly nervous to walk alone, but I knew he was there with me. Mark met me towards the end of the aisle and walked me the rest of the way.

I remember our ceremony being full of laughter.. Mark made a joke during his vows even though everyone advised him not to. It was hilarious, and perfectly reflects who we are as a couple.

After our wedding reception we had our friend Brendan’s band play a late night show in the camp dance hall. Little did I know Mark had a surprise for me. He jumped on stage and sang with the band “I Love You Always Forever” by Donna Lewis. I wasn’t sure if I should laugh or cry. I did a little of both. It was with-out- a-doubt the most romantic act he has ever done. It was brilliant, and I’m so happy it was caught on tape.

Our absolutely favorite moment for the both of us was watching our worlds collide, and everyone having such a good time. It was a very surreal experience.

It’s a day that’s one for the books with the perfect Fall weather, warm hot toddies, moments of sparkling glamour and a rustic New Hampshire backdrop. My words do it no justice but you know what does? Ruth Eileen’s incredibly beautiful imagery. Have a look here for even more.

From The Bride…Sasha and I met in California and have since moved to the East Coast. He is originally from New Hampshire which is home to one of my favorite little lake towns, Wolfeboro. I attended a wedding at Moody Mountain Farm in Wolfeboro a few years before I met Sasha. I fell in love with the venue and its outrageous views. Being from California I never imagined myself getting married in a place like Moody Mountain. But… a few years and an engagement later I was on the phone booking our fall wedding at that cozy farm. We wanted a modern feel, with a bit of glam and a touch rustic. Most of our beautiful day came together with the help of our loving family and friends. From the flowers which were put together by Sahsa’s Aunt Holly and Granny to the yummy naked carrot cake made by Sasha’s Aunt and Uncle. Most of the decor was DIY and included tinsel escort cards, gold dip dyed stumps, a whiskey tasting bar and a DIY Photo Booth. I knew I wanted our wedding to represent exactly Sasha and I’s personalities and being an event planner I couldn’t help myself with the small, personal details. The wedding day was even better than I could have imagined due to my vendor dream team. Our caterer executed every detail perfectly from the hot spiked cider at the ceremony, to the caramel pots de creme at the dessert table. The barn was like a dream thanks to our day of coordinator and all of our family and friends. But my favorite part was by far the giant, red-leafed tree where we said I do followed by tons of yummy food and dancing the night away.
