Smitten doesn’t even begin to describe how we feel about this seriously gorg photo shoot curated by a team of wedding geniuses. With Corbin Gurkin behind the lens, Maine Seasons Events dreaming up the design, Gus & Ruby Letterpress crafting up the paper perfection and Flora Fauna making flower MAGIC happen – the result is pure, inspiration-filled gorgeousness. The full gallery feels like you are lost in the prettiest of dreams, and we wouldn’t blame you one little bit if you lingered there for more than a moment or two this Thursday morning – you’ll probably find us in there too!
From Meagan of Maine Seasons Events… Inspired by the texture and feeling of a Swiss dot wedding dress, this design started with a palette of robin’s egg blue, pale peach, raw muslin and gold. When collecting elements and props, old gold framed mirrors, cake stands and plates, the look came together with yards and yards of pale blue and raw muslin, which Maine Seasons Events sewed into fluffy ruffles to adorn the tables. Against an heirloom estate backdrop, gold ballroom chairs, a crystal chandelier and crystal stemware added glamour and sophistication to the table scape. Luscious flower arrangements and bouquets by Flora Fauna included the spring’s best picks of tulips, anemones, David Austin roses and delphinium, arranged in an eclectic mix of gold and pale blue glass containers. Custom letterpress stationery from Gus & Ruby Letterpress adorned with hand painted edges and tulle posies from Paper Posy Designs, along with a ruffled tiered cake from Nothing Bakes Like a Parrott, completed the glamorous look.
Today we have featured the wedding of two filmmakers who made it their business to bring to life the journey of three senior citizens who serve as the official Troop Greeters of Maine’s Bangor International Airport. After hearing the incredible story about the film and the time, money and energy that was pored into its making, a group of Maine wedding professionals decided to gift this generous couple a wedding as their own way of thanking them for bringing such an important and touching story to the world.
Here is a quick look at the Brunch Farewell that the wedding vendors designed just for this lovely couple…
Bangor International Airport in Maine is a very common refueling point for flights coming and going to the Middle East. Therefore, a vast majority of service people headed to or fro pass through BIA. This group of Troop Greeters organized during Dessert Storm to ensure that no troop coming or going from war felt forgotten and to be sure they would feel appreciated for their sacrifices and service. The Troop Greeters are veterans, spouses of veterans, current servicemen and women, and supportive community members from all walks of life and all ages. The film documents the story of the Troop Greeters today, the lives of the three subjects, and all of the issues these three are coping with in their personal (now public) lives such as the emotional anguish of sending loved-ones off to war, loss, aging, physical pain, financial distress, and loneliness. It is also a movie about patriotism, love, and hope in a time when these things are needed most in this country.
The wedding industry is so unique. It’s filled to the brim with the most creative professionals you can imagine, those who are so good at what they do, it’s almost hard to believe. And yet it’s those same insanely talented people that happen to be the most giving, generous and kind people on the planet…as is the case with today’s featured affair. Some of Maine’s top luxury wedding vendors came together to give the gift of a lifetime to a couple that has committed themselves to bringing an incredible Veteran’s Day story to the world. And the result was a perfect combination of love, energy, excitement and pure gorgeousness.
