Beach Baby-Q Bash

This weekend I am co-hosting a end of summer Beach Baby-Q Bash for my cousin and his wife and their bundle to be. I cannot wait to share all of the details with you of the day, but I thought I would share the invitations first. I printed them on cardstock and tied them together with pink bakers twine. Then they were mailed in kraft paper envelopes with pink pen addresses…setting the tone for the weekend’s events!

How darling are these invites?

No gift wrap for this Momma to be, she wants to enjoy the party!

All tied up and ready to go to our guests!


Married: Brett & Sarah

This June Brett and Sarah were married on a beautiful {and hot} summer day in Boston at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The boys stared out the day with a ride in Uber Cabs to a brewery tour at Harpoon while the girls got ready at the hotel. Their first look was done by the amazingly talented Laura Parent of Relive Photography on the bridge and the images came out perfect! The crowds loved seeing them walk towards one another and Sarah knew how to work the camera. Sarah’s color scheme of cobalt blue carried throughout the day in the dresses, her shoes, and accented the gold and cream florals and decor perfectly! The night was full of love from both sides, from heartfelt toasts and first dances to the dance floor antics in the evening. The event was so wonderful to be a part of! Cheers to the new Mr and Mrs!!

Gifted: For brides, hostesses, & you!

How darling are these trays from Parker & Rain? Each and every one just has so much personality it is hard to chose a favorite. I must say if that flamingo tray made its way to my coffee table I would be a very happy girl. These unique designs are all available in their etsy shop and would make a perfect gift for a shower, or a hostess gift for the lovely summer house that you call your second home during these months. Which one is your favorite?

Sequins & Stripes is holding a contest for an adorable lobster variety of these trays, run don’t walk and enter now!

Unexpected Weather, Perfect Union

When Kelli and Nick were married in October in Boston they never anticipated that it would snow on their big day. You would have never known as they celebrated and danced the night away with over 230 guests in downtown Boston. Armor & Martell captured their big day perfectly. The bride included vintage elements into her dress, and the boys had some fun with color in their attire. The overall theme was rustic modern, which incorporated lounge seating areas with vintage stools, and sofas, a custom chuppah made of birch and hanging lanterns (tall enough for the tallest groom!) and a custom photo lounge area for guests to enjoy. The entire evening was a wonderful celebration of a perfect couple!
