REAL WEDDING: Luxurious Details & Full Service Planning
Every year we have a few clients who have a vision for their wedding day that is above and beyond your typical wedding reception décor, and Rob and Niccole’s wedding really stood out for the amazing volume of luxurious details that were incorporated into their day.
Rob and Niccole took advantage of our Full Service Planning guru Monique Jeffrey, to ensure that the intricately adorned estate, tent and garden design for their ceremony and reception was accomplished without a hitch! With gorgeous flower installations, custom furniture, lighting and live entertainment, this event was a great collaboration between some of the top wedding professionals in New England! Today we are going to focus on four elements that made this event really stand out – be sure to read through to the end to check out ALL of our partners on this event!
PANTONE COLOR OF THE YEAR: Greenery
Every year the king of color, Pantone, comes out with a new “Color of the Year” and this year they went with a springy shade called Greenery. Pantone has become the trusted source for color influence across many industries like fashion, interiors, manufacturing and design.
Greenery is a natural color that plays nicely with all sorts of shades but today we have some inspiration for a Pantone wedding theme using a few colors from the “forest floor” color palette.
Five Timeless Wedding Trends
There are many trends that come and go, but there are a few that are here to stay and will make your wedding photos look timeless!
Spread the Love
Most weddings and events are customized & enhanced with wardrobe items, décor pieces and floral accents. While these elements make the event day special, often times there is no use for them once the event has passed. Luckily, organizations have been created to donate items you may not want or need anymore and community businesses are also in need of more supplies.
In the spirit of the month of Thanksgiving, here are a few ideas to pay it forward!
EVENT TREND: Farm Tables
The farm table arrived on the event scene along with mason jars and burlap decor but there are signs that this trend may be here to stay! Tables have been, and always will be, an essential part of party décor but the farm table offers a unique twist on the typical table setting. A true chameleon of party décor, the farm table feels right at home in a garden with benches, a luxury tent with upholstered chairs, or a mansion with ballroom chairs. (more…)
