Our wedding over the fourth of July weekend for our lovely couple from California has been featured on Style Me Pretty.  It seemed not so long ago I met with them the very first time for coffee at the Chocolate Sparrow in Orleans.  I loved working with them from the start, Erin had amazing vision for her event and it was pure joy for us to execute her tented wedding at The Holden Inn.  Joshua was great to work with as well becoming very active in the planning right from the start.  Many thanks to Lisa Rigby Photography for her amazing talent in capturing their event and to all the fantastic vendors that made their day flawless!  We wish them the very best of in their new journey together!  Please click on the link below to view the Style Me Pretty feature.

A Day at Bourne Farm

The day was one to remember as we worked our largest wedding this season for Leah and Joe. With some rain showers the day before the wedding, the weather thankfully held out for the happy couple on their big day. All of the staff arrived bright and early to prepare and set up the tent and cocktail hour. Once the 300 plus guests arrived, they were escorted down to the ceremony at Bourne Farm, while they sipped on fresh lemonade and tried to stay cool in the heat. Once the twelve groomsmen and the groom made their way to the ceremony, a trolley escorted the beautiful bridesmaids and the stunning bride down to walk down the aisle. After a quick ceremony, the guests were invited to the cocktail hour up by the barn, while the wonderful staff from Chapin's Catering passed around mouthwatering appetizers, including risotto balls, mini beef wellingtons, and delectable spring rolls. The bridal party stayed behind and took some pictures while food and drinks were passed around to them, as well. By the time cocktail hour was over, everyone was ready to watch the bridal party be introduced under the tent. Leah and Joe's bridal party's introductions were definitely one of the most exciting we have ever seen. As all 24 members and family members of the bridal party were introduced, each couple gave a little dance as they walked in the tent and one of the bride and groom's friends grabbed a guitar from the band and started playing along to walk everyone in. With cheers, laughter, and good spirits filled the tent, it was time to kick off the night. As dinner buffet was being set up, the guests began to dance a little on the dance floor. For the rest of the night, all of the guests and the newlyweds danced and enjoyed themselves as they all celebrated the joining of the two families. We'd like to thank all of our wonderful vendors who put their all into this day: All About Flowers by Judy Fligg, Tom Davis from Studio 280 Photography and his second shooter Kate Murphy Lowenstein from KML Photography, Chapin's Catering, Bayside Tent, Rentals Unlimited, Cape Destinations, Video by Lee, Officiant Melinda Gallant, Bruce Abbott Music, and their fabulous band Wilson Stevens Productions. We wish nothing but happiness to the beautiful new couple!

Wedding at The Wequassett Inn

With the sun shining and water views of Pleasant Bay as the backdrop, Tara and Michael celebrated their union as  husband and wife in family and friends at the Wequassett Inn in Chatham. With the ceremony overlooking the water, guests watched as the two pronounced their love for one another. Guests were treated to the amazing sound of bagpipes as the ceremony concluded.The beautiful bride looked stunning in a beautiful cascading steel blue dress, accented with beading and lots of gems. After the ceremony, guests were invited to cocktail hour to socialize and taste some delicious appetizers. A quick change, and the stunning bride put on her equally elegant second dress for the reception. After a fantastic station menu was served and finished, the newlyweds and their guests danced the afternoon away. Later on, Tara and Michael decided to play around on the dock and ended up jumping in the water, dress and suit on and all. No cares in the world, just bringing out the fun sides in themselves.  After the formal reception, guests were treated to a fun filled pool party hosted at the Wequassett's fabulous pool cabanas. Overall, it was a perfect day for Tara and Michael. We'd like to thank all of our wonderful vendors: Montilios Bakery, Make up- Lisa George, Legit Band, All About Flowers, White Tie Limo, McElroy Films, Wequassett Inn, and Amy Dykens for these wonderful photos.
