Time to Vote!

Today marks the first official voting for the details of Laura & Nolan's fabulous Real Maine Wedding!  You can visit to help us decide the decor theme.  We have brought a taste of these to each of the Bridal Shows put on by The Maine Wedding Association, and are excited to finally reveal them to the public.  We love each of these designs and can't wait to find out what you help choose for the lucky couple!

On the table, so to speak, are "Vintage Chic", "Traditional Charm", and "Cool Contemporary"... 

"Vintage Chic" is casual elegance at its finest.  A white table linen is overlaid with a buttercup yellow table runner and topped with birch rounds, stunning antique milk glass vases, candles in mason jars, antique tins, and an assortment of flowers that include Billy balls, tulips, and cream roses.  Opaque pastel plates are used as chargers, with vintage-feel linens completing the look.  The effect is sumptuous but light; think high tea held outdoors at a countryside estate.  This tablescape is the ultimate in "upcycled" glamor.

Next is "Traditional Charm".  A rich chocolate pintuck linen covers the table.  A striking trio of red roses and calla lilies grace the center, surrounded by lots of gold votive holders.  This look is reminiscent of Old Hollywood glamour.  We can easily picture women in gorgeous dresses and men in tuxedos gracing these tables.  Traditional table service, set off with gold chargers, adorns each place setting.  Serve from the left, clear from the right, please.

Finally we offer the "Cool Contemporary" look, so-called for its black-and-white minimalist drama.  A black tablecloth is overlaid with a sheer, white linen.  Placed in the center of the table is a tall square vase, topped boldly with a huge arrangement of monochromatic carnations, David Austin roses, spider mums, and Star of Bethlehem, accented with peacock feathers, and punctuated with an inverted calla lily submerged in the vase itself.  This is a conversation piece, surrounded by an array of small, square votives and candles floating in slim cylinders.  The effect is nothing less than sparkling.
