Simple and sweet and filled with love, this wedding is my happy place.  Imagine an intimate ceremony and reception for two set against a stunning Cape Cod backdrop (hello, Wequassett Resort And Golf Club), complete with a morning sail and lush blooms from Patrice Milley Designs.  It’s everything an elopement should be, and it was all captured brilliantly by Glass Jar Photography.  See it in the full gallery.

From Glass Jar Photography… We were so thrilled to be asked to document Kara and Kevin’s Elopement in beautiful Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

We started the day with a morning sailing trip around the Cape, drinking champagne while Kara and Kevin traded wedding day gifts. After the sailing trip, we followed Kara to her suite for her to get ready, all leading up to a quiet ceremony for only the two of them, an officiant and a musician on a hill overlooking the Cape. it all was simple, unique, fun, and everything I’d image two people in love and wanting a special experience to be. And We are so grateful to be the lucky ones to capture it all for them.

Natural Greenery Fall Wedding Inspiration

While I’ll never turn down a beautiful rose bouquet, lately my floral fantasies lean more towards the wild side. I’m craving greens and lots of them, and Whim Events tapped right into that with this shoot by Deborah Zoe. These natural greenery styles are both elegant and rustic, untamed and eye catching and Robinson Press created some stunning stationery to match. Take a walk on the wild side right this way.

From Whim Events… 2015 brides seem to be taking a whole new approach to “floral design.” Many of our brides have been asking us for greens, greens and more greens. And some have even requested no flowers at all. Their vision includes lush, wild spaces full of leaves and ferns, magical indoor forests of wild wonder. And we love it. Because, sometimes you have to bring floral design back to its roots… in a literal sense. There is so much beauty and lushness within the simplicity of textural foliage.

This photo shoot was inspired by these magical forest trendsetters. We hope to inspire more brides to open their minds to the idea of wedding florals turning over a whole new leaf (pun wildly intended!). Not getting married but still love this look? It’s also perfect for a gorgeous table!

We set out to create a scene completely inspired by the earthy color and texture of the magnolia leaf. With it’s minimalistic colors of tan and green, we also chose to incorporate pops of copper for a surprise and whimsical element. The shoot centered around a sweetheart table, to create an intimate and magical green space for the pair. The colors were copper, green, natural tones & cream.

We framed the couple with a draping green garland as well as a runner of greens down the center of their table. Weaving multiple textures of greenery and copper accents into one another, the garland was made of the magnolia leaf, fern and copper painted chili peppers. The bouquets were made of the same elements, featuring flowing plant-dyed silk ribbon from Silk and Willow in the color scheme.

We chose each detail of the table scape so that it would reflect the color and texture the magnolia leaf. We loved pairing the cream plates with the pop of green from the wine goblet, all atop the natural colored linen. We accented the table with copper napkin rings and copper candlelight.

The paper suite integrated those naturalistic elements in detail. The letterpress stationery was created by Robinson Press. The design features an ornate and flowing calligraphic typeface as the focal point, bolstered by natural texture and subtle pattern.The leaf pattern used in the RSVP envelope was adapted from an historic American folk pattern, the ecru paper stock is 100% cotton and manufactured in the USA, and the metallic wood veneer paper is made by an almost 200 year old paper mill in Germany.

From Deborah Zoë Photography… This shoot was part of a workshop Deborah Zoe Photography led at her home on the North Shore. We wanted to create a “real” wedding atmosphere including aspects such as getting ready, to bridal portraits and more. Little did we know that it would snow that day forcing our workshop to be held indoors, after we had planned everything for outside! It turned out to be magical though and we love the look and feel of intimacy created by photographing the couple and the table scape in our home!

From the beautiful Bride… This romantic winter wedding following a snow storm features a design palette of white flowers, lace, burnished silver, mercury glass and lots of candles. The space was transformed into a warm & inviting winter escape.

My husband and I both grew up in New Hampshire, but we’ve made the North Shore of Massachusetts our home. We decided to get married in January at St. Mary’s in Danvers, MA, and celebrate our marriage nearby, at Ipswich Country Club. We chose to get married in the winter for a variety of reasons – from wanting our wedding to be just a bit “different,” to needing to getting married during a time period when I could take enough time off from work and school (Dan works in software sales, and I work in marketing and take MBA courses at night in Boston) for both a wedding and a honeymoon someplace warm.

When my husband and I started planning our wedding – we chose to prioritize several key components – a location that had charm and plenty of room for dancing, good people to work with, delicious food, and the opportunity to celebrate with our closest family and friends. In terms of our wedding design and decorations – I wanted our wedding to look classic with touches of vintage.

We knew we were taking a bit of a risk by having our wedding in January in New England — and sure enough, we were hit with a snowstorm just two days before our wedding. When the snow started to come down the Thursday before our Saturday wedding, I literally had 10 minutes to pick up my dress (with the help of my amazing maid-of-honor and her husband, who came to the rescue in their large, four-wheel drive vehicle) before the shop closed for business due to snow. We were nervous about how the snowstorm would affect travel for our guests and parking at the church – but as luck would have it, the storm stopped before the wedding rehearsal and we had beautiful snow covering everything for the wedding day.

When we look back now at our wedding day – we are so happy with all the decisions that we made. We had an amazing day with our wonderful family and friends, and are so thankful for all of the people who helped and supported us along the way.
