REAL WEDDING: KATY & MITCH
Katy & Mitch got married at Willowdale on a sunny summer day in June. Mitch serves in the Marine Core and looked dashing wearing his dress blues on his wedding day!
Katy’s off the shoulder wedding dress was stunning with so many ornate details! The dress had 3 quarter length sleeves was adorned with pearls and rhinestones making it sparkle while a long trail of buttons went all down her back.
The natural light shining through the trees made for a perfect backdrop for Katy and Mitch’s first look portraits.
Katy wore a cathedral length veil during the ceremony in our garden courtyard facing the back of our fieldstone mansion. Bistro lights cascaded overhead from the tent to the courtyard where Katy & Mitch exchanged vows in front of our birch arbor decorated with florals by Celia’s Flower Studio in Gloucester, MA.
The groomsmen also looked dapper in their military dress blues complete with ceremonial Marine Corps. swords! They are posing in front of the original entrance of the estate!
The bridesmaids wore floor length chiffon gowns in earth tone colors and held large bouquets with lots of greenery and pops of white.
An assortment of hors d’oeuvres were passed during cocktail hour including mushroom spring rolls and local cod croquette with lemon aioli.
If you’re looking for an alternative to a traditional guestbook, instead have a custom piece of art made that your guests can make their mark on!
The groomsmen conducted an official “arch of swords” as Katy & Mitch walked into through the garden courtyard for the reception.
The reception space was set up with our upgraded walnut farm tables and chiavari chairs which looked great against the whimsy of our garden courtyard.
Instead of table numbers, they decided to name the tables after places they’ve traveled together complete with a photo of them in that place.
When dusk set in the glow of the bistro lights lit up the entire reception area as the guests enjoyed dinner.
To end the night on a sweet note, an assortment of mini desserts was served including whoopie pies, macaroons and cannolis made by Topsfield Bakeshop!

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. (more…)
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.

Details After Dark
Ali and Andrews beautiful September wedding was recently featured on Style Me Pretty with lots of gorgeous photos from by Erin McGinn Photography and flowers from Dogwood Floral Design. We love the pretty portraits and details of the day, but we wanted to “shed some light” on the fun wedding details that can keep the party going all night long!
This savvy bride and groom thought of everything for their guests including shawls to keep warm for the when the sun goes down and heart shaped party shades to dance the night away underneath our Sperry Tent.
The perfect weather allowed guests to enjoy the outdoor bar and bistro lighting in our courtyard when they needed a break from dancing.
The night ended with a visit from the Whoo(pie) Wagon where guests could choose their favorite whoopie pie flavor before heading home.
We hope these details after dark inspire you for your own wedding or event!
