Two Lovely Weddings

June 13, 2015
The Adair & Peckett’s on Sugar Hill

❈ ➹ ❈

This Saturday we had the pleasure of working on not one, but two beautiful weddings. Both were relaxed, but elegant, garden inspired design incorporating the beautiful blooms of early summer.

1first bouquet of the day 

The first wedding of the day was a small intimate event, taking place at the Adair Inn, Bethlehem. We had a chance to photograph the bride, and bridesmaid’s bouquets against the beautiful mossy stone walls that lead to the venue. Wisps of jasmine vine made it’s debut for the summer in both the  bride’s and bridesmaid’s bouquet.

We created a colorful bouquet incoporating some brilliant peonies, garden roses, jasmine vine, lady’s mantle, and eucalyptus. Leaving the ribbon long on both bouquets to add to their elegant look

For the centerpieces we designed ten mini jars from Crate & Barrel, that created a floral line down the long dining table.

Peckett’s on Sugar Hill

The second wedding was located at Peckett’s on Sugar Hill on the beautiful historic and scenic road Lover’s Lane, Sugar Hill.  This is site of the first school in America, and the former Peckett House Hotel.  This venue was both historical and beautiful. We were fortunate enough to have designed the flowers for the bride’s cousin last year at the same amazing site. It is always nice to work for the same family again.

The centerpieces containers we used are from Campo de’ Fiori, stunning clay pots that slowly grow moss over time. These are part of our rental collection and are a gorgeous for a garden inspired wedding or event. The arrangements featured beautiful trailing amaranths and jasmine vine, “Coral Charm” peonies, “Juliet” and “Romantic Antique” garden roses, mint, rosemary, and eucalyptus making it feel wild but still elegant and so fragrant!

We hated saying “goodbye” to these beautiful coral peonies and garden roses, we had become quite attached to them in the studio over the last few days.

The cocktail  arrangements for the tables held many herbs — rosemary, mint, and lavender to play with the mint julep cocktails they would be served later that evening as a signature cocktail.

Beautiful cast iron urns provided by the bride’s family (descendants of the hotels original owners) to be used at both the ceremony and the cocktail hour.  The urns actually belonged to the hotel that one stood on this amazing property, being repurposed.  They were filled with beautiful cascading greens overflowing over the side.

The urns were placed on the stone wall that used to be the steps leading up to the hotel, this was where the cocktail hours was held.

We left a small sprig of rosemary and lavender and a single “Juliet” garden rose infront of both the groom and bride’s dinner plates (also the original plates from the original hotel).

It was a pleasure designing and creating for our clients and their families, and being guests of two wonderful local venues in the beautiful White Mountains where we live!  Next weekend it’s two more beautiful New England weddings, one on Saturday at Sugar Bush Resort, in Warren, Vermont, and one on Sunday at the Profile Club in Franconia, New Hampshire.

Until next week,

Peony Perfect Spring Wedding

Congratulations to Mr&Mrs.Newton!

Sometimes we work with clients we never get to meet in person until we deliver the flowers. This was one of those special occasions. It was touching to see the beautiful bride burst into tears when we delivered her delicate baby’s breath and peony bouquet.

We don’t usually work with baby’s breath, so it was a fun and challenge for us. We incorporated lacy textures of Queen Ann’s lace which adds to the delicate look of baby’s breath.

The groom’s boutonnière was wrapped in a single piece of twine, to make the groom’s boutonnière to give this wedding a masculine touch.

 We are so glad that it is peony season. The beautiful shade of these pale buttery peonies added a soft warmth to the bouquets.

The bride requested we make a small bouquet for her to throw, so she could hold onto her’s. We made a delicate little toss bouquet out of baby’s breathe and yarrow.

These sweet little centerpieces had a hand-pciekd feel from the sweet chamomile and the beautiful wild spirea.

We used some beautiful asparagus vine in the arbor to give the arrangement more movement and life.

Elegant & Organic Bishop Farm Wedding

Saturday, May 30, 2015
Jessica & Paul
Bishop Farm

We had a beautiful little wedding this past Saturday at Bishop Farm. The style reflected a not fussy look, with elegant garden designs composed with seasonal, wild, and native flowers.

The sweet design of the arrangements was a complementary aesthetic to the Bishop Farm’s rustic farm setting. The extra greenery blended perfectly with the lush New Hampshire spring scenery. The lace was used in the arbor to match the all lace gown of the bride, Jessica.

Inside the barn, where the reception was to be held we created some garden inspired centerpieces for the tables. They were designed in some classic mason jars lent to us by the farm. Each jar hand tied with a piece of burlap.

The bride’s bouquet was a loose and natural. Textured with greens and speckled with some hints of blue. The whole thing was tied with some light ribbons and some twine.

After a humid day of preparation it was a cool little treat to see! Of we created the same earthy and green feeling to then bridesmaid’s bouquets as well.

I am very excited for the season ahead, full of locally grown flowers from all over New England. Stay tuned for upcoming posts featuring some of our fondest local flower farms (and a few surprises of our own!)
