Meagan & Jason: Popponesset Inn, Cape Cod Wedding

This next wedding was definitely one of my favorites from this year - bold fall colors, beachy accents, and one of my favorite Cape venues!  Meagan is such a sweetheart, and was so fun to work with.  She sent me a few bouquet pictures for inspiration, and the adorable little starfish for the boutonnieres for this beachy fall Cape Cod wedding.  Congrats to Meagan & Jason!
 The bride carried a bouquet of sunflowers, orchids, roses, calla lilies, gerbera daisies, and accents of greens and starfish.
The MOH carried sunflowers, orchids, roses, calla lilies, gerbera daisies, and accent greens.
 The bridesmaids carried sunflowers, roses, calla lilies, gerbera daisies, and accent greens.
 Mother's posy bouquet of calla lilies, hypericum berries and safari sunset greens.
 The toss bouquet was made up of roses, dahlias, protea pin cushion and other seasonal flowers and accent greens.

 Flower arrangement for the bar area made up of celosia, protea pin cushion, calla lilies, roses, gerbera daisies, sunflowers, and more!
 Starfish and calla lily boutonniere
Altar arrangements for the ceremony were made up of dahlias, celosia, sunflowers, snapdragon, and other seasonal flowers and accents.

Sherri & Scott: Sky Meadow Country Club Wedding

Scott is my cousin, so obviously I was more than happy to do the bouquets and boutonnieres for his and Sherri's wedding!  Scott has always been a caring, family orientated guy, so I know he will be a great husband and dad :)  Sherri is hilarious, always tells it how it is, and has been able to hold her own in the Regan family from day one!  Thank you again for having me as a part of your wedding & best wishes with your soon-to-be new addition!!

 The bride's bouquet was made up of roses, ranunculus and Picaso calla lilies.
 The bridesmaids carried small posy bouquets of roses and calla lilies.

Liz & Paul: Atlantica Restaurant Wedding

Liz was a dream to work with.  She told me what she wanted, and had complete faith in me to take it from there!  Liz wanted simple hydrangea bouquets and centerpieces, which is all you need when you have stunning views of Cohasset harbor surrounding the entire venue!
This is the view from the parking lot - never mind the reception room!

Even though it was October, Liz and Paul's wedding still had a very classic, coastal New England feel.  
The bride's bouquet was made up of hydrangea, ranunculus and Queen Anne's lace.
The MOH carried a mix of white and green hydrangeas.
The bridesmaids carried bouquets of baby green hydrangeas.
Liz and Paul did a mix of floral and non floral centerpieces.  The centerpieces I did were simple arrangements of white hydrangea.  Using just white hydrangeas is a great way save $$ on flowers since they are large flowers that take up a lot of space.  This bride saved even more by buying pre-owned vases at Goodwill and adding a green ribbon.
Congratulations to Liz & Paul and thank you to Liz for her kind review on Wedding Wire.

Coreen & Brian: Granite Links Golf Club Wedding

I am always so excited to hear from recently engaged Bentley alumni, so I was thrilled to be a part of Coreen and Brian's wedding!  Brian and I were in the same orientation group, and he is one of the nicest, sweetest guys you'll ever meet.  I knew Coreen through a mutual friend at Bentley, and although I didn't know her as well as Brian, I absolutely loved working with her and getting to know her better this past year.  I also need to thank  Kate, our mutual friend, for passing my info along - all the way from Texas - to Coreen!

Coreen and Brian wanted to use bright fall colors, like magenta and bright orange, for their October wedding.  They also wanted to incorporate branches and pumpkins to really bring the outside in.  After days and days of rain, Coreen and Brian had a gorgeous wedding day with stunning views of the Boston skyline from Granite Links Golf Club in Quincy, MA.

The bride's bouquet was made up of celosia, orchids, calla lilies, roses, berries, protea pin cushion, dahlias, and safari sunset.
The bridesmaids carried celosia, calla lilies, roses, dahlias, berries and safari sunset.
Half of the centerpieces were low arrangements of celosia, dahlias, protea pin cushion, calla lilies, roses, berries, safari sunset and curly willow branches.  The bride and a few talented helpers made the adorable pumpkin table numbers.

The remaining centerpieces were tall arrangements of curly willow branches with hydrangea and Chinese lantern branches.

Ana & John: Indian Pond Country Club Wedding

I loved my fall weddings this year, bursting with color, and Ana & John's Indian Pond Country Club wedding was no exception!  Ana and John were really great to work with; they gave me their color scheme and a few flowers they liked and didn't like, and gave me some freedom to take it from there!  

The bride carried a mix of celosia, roses, calla lilies, cremon, gerbera daisies, protea pin cushion, carnations, and seasonal greens.
The bridesmaids carried roses, gerbera daisies, calla lilies, and carnations.
The centerpieces were made up of a mix of high and low arrangements.
The low centerpieces had celosia, roses, cremon, protea pin cushion, hydrangea, and calla lilies.
The high centerpieces were made up hydrangea, roses, celosia, cremon, carnations and greenery.  The purple hydrangea were my favorite, and I actually had a few left over that lasted for an entire month at my house!
The ceremony was supposed to take place outside on the golf course, but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, so it was moved inside in front of this gorgeous fireplace.
The ceremony flowers were made up of gladiolus, snapdragons, stock, safari sunset, hydrangea, cremon, and gerbera daises.  For cocktail hour we did a simple gerbera daisy floating in a martini glass.
I also got to work with Ana's mom, Patty, as the wedding got closer, and she was such a pleasure to work with!  The Monday following Ana and John's wedding, I received an email from Patty that said, "I have to tell you how spectacular your flower arrangements were!  The colors of the blossoms and the composition of the arrangements were eye-catching and beautiful. Guests were remarking about their beauty all evening long, and I can't stop looking at the ones I brought home. One of my guests wrote me this morning to say she thought they were "in a class by themselves and worthy of a prize!"  Most of all I want to thank you because I think your flowers helped make our guests feel very special and happy."  I hope Patty knows that her kind email made me feel very special and happy too! :)  Congrats to Ana & John!

Blerta & Niko: Granite Links Wedding

Blerta and I both went to Bentley together, but we didn't actually meet and become friends until we started working together at our first job after college doing internal audit.  Blerta and I ended up traveling to different company locations together, including a trip to Edinburgh where we scored tickets to a Matthew Williamson fashion show!!!  I was so happy and excited Blerta asked me to do her wedding flowers, and I loved her orange and coral color scheme for her September wedding.

 Blerta's bouquet was made up of stock, roses, calla lilies, berries, and seeded eucalyptus. 
 The MOH carried roses and calla lilies.
 Bridesmaids carried an all white rose bouquet.
 The centerpieces were made up of orange and coral roses, such as Freespirit, Milva and High & Intense.

I had to share this last picture from Stefani Studio Photography - how adorable is this little munchkin?   Not to mention the gorgeous couple and amazing view of the city in the background!
Congratulations to Blerta and Niko!  I also need to thank Blerta's mom for the delicious cookies she gave me when I dropped off the bridal party flowers - so sweet of her :)
