winter wedding : willowdale estate : red & purple : zev fisher photography

there is nothing more "winter in new england" than the anticipation of a snow storm... or is there?  im pretty sure this divine wedding photographed by zev fisher at willowdale estate is as winter in new england as it gets.  cozy up with hot cocoa (maybe with a hint of mint) or a gorgeous glass of red wine and indulge in this december wedding.

when rachel and i first met, i knew i had a new mission on my hands...  help create a vision come to life. using our flowers with rachel's dream color palette we were up to the challenge of seamlessly bringing everything together.  flowers have a way of doing just that.

"I know I was a little unique as I wanted all different flowers from my deep red, cranberry, and aubergine color scheme for the arrangement and wedding party.  You truly were the only other person who could see it in your head... and you made my vision come to life!" -Rachel

rachel and john's ceremony took place at saint augustine's parish in andover.  her bridesmaid's wore floor length aubergine dresses with a cranberry sache.  each maid carried bouquet's in rachel's palette of purples and reds.  the fun part was each bouquet was a mass of 1 type of flower.  rachel and i created 6 bouquets for her girls with aubergine anemones, plum sweet pea, burgundy ranunculas, dutch red tulips, red peonies & red amaryllis.

our blushing bride carried white peonies with native ilex berries finished with seeded eucalyptus.  every detail for rachel's flowers were perfectly thought through.  from the boutonnieres with their accompanying bouquets of the perfect blends of reds, plums, burgundies, wine, cranberry and aubergine to the table centerpieces.  rachel and john's wedding was warm and romantic, a perfect color palette for the end of december.

fruitlands museum : summer tent wedding : samantha melanson photography

nicole and i first met at the shop in andover and it was a match made in les fleurs flower heaven!  i enjoyed her enthusiasm for the flowers and all that was fresh and beautiful!  

we choose nicole and erik's blooms by what would be the most abundant and lush for their june wedding.  we could not have been happier at the way everything came together.  

nicole and her mom collected all the vases and containers we used throughout the day.  summer greens, whites, pale pinks and barely-there purples were just the fresh pop the tent needed.  the couple wed at fruitlands museum in harvard, massachusetts.  

fruitlands boasts a beautiful backdrop for a wedding.  ceremonies can take place on top of the hill where guests are sure to enjoy the beautiful new england scenery, (in the fall the foliage is breath-taking) followed by dinner and dancing under the tent.

nicole's bouquet was soo full of june blossoms.  garden astilbe and clematis were mixed with snap dragons and stock.  beautiful pink "miranda" garden roses and "festiva maxima" peonies.  lavender, scented geranium leaves, hosta leaves, solomon seal foliage, mint, dusty miller... you know, to name just a few ;o)  jute twine was the perfect way to finish nicole's bouquet.

the gentlemen's boutonnieres were all a bit different.
switch grass, sage, dusty miller, andromeda & lavender were gathered together for this handsome piece

lush plumes of babies breath gathered together with maiden hair fern & hosta were ethereal and clean in mason jars hung from bark twine down the aisle.

professional word of advise (aka, kerianne's thought): with vast backdrops simple aisle decor looks best.  when choosing ceremony site's with a view, remember just that... the view!  adding to much down the aisle can be overwhelming and the end result take away from the scenery.  i love the babies breath below... soo simple, but gives the aisle a little somthin' somthin'.

under the tent fresh arrangements added soft color to the tables.  filling the collection of bud vases & pitchers nicole and her mom found each table had it's own look.  we added some great stone square planters from les fleurs to add a larger arrangement to some of the guest tables bringing the whole look together.  it's important to remember when doing small vases or many types of finishes to have a few larger arrangements to "weight" the space and create a cohesive feel in the room.

the bud vases were either clear glass in a mix of sizes and shapes, lavender glass bottles or white milk glass.  white clematis, white snap dragons and white peonies looked great in the purple bottles.  "jules" peonies, apple bloom stock and pale pink astilbe were used in other vases to create the table arrangements.  sweet accents like dusty miller, lavender, mint & sage looked lovely with the blooms.

barn at gibbet hill : peach, white and gray : sarah bastille photography

no matter the season, the picturesque farm at the barn at gibbet hill is stunning.  though i swoon over fall weddings held at the groton venue.  with the grass still as green as it was in the spring, it's the golden hue's from the tree's and those fab-u-lous angus cows mullin' around that get me every time!  les fleurs had the great pleasure of styling jo & chris's flowers for their autumn wedding photographed by the amazing sarah bastille at the barn at gibbet hill.  enjoy!!
