Vintage Inspired Castine Maine Wedding.

It's a snow day here in Maine.  Cold & Windy.  Makes a girl daydream of weddings future & weddings past.  So, today we went into our vault for an adorable wedding we did over a year ago. This fun, preppy, & vintage wedding was in Castine Maine, where the bride's family grew up summering.

  What makes this wedding even sweeter, is the bride, Laura, came to Maine for a month as our intern this past summer.  We Love Her!! She is hilarious, creative & talented! We want Alan to come get a job in Maine so we can have her ALL the time.

Laura had a great vision for her wedding. Vintage, milkglass, chandeliers, greens and pops of yellow & blue.  She wanted a nontraditional, unique, preppy look, and she did it... beautifully!  We miss you Laura & your wild rice!!! xoxo

So snuggle in and be inspired by this vintage chic gem!
Laura, you are just so stunning

Laura wore a bird cage veil, it looked perfect with her dress

Alan, the adorable groom, greeted guests &

New Year's Eve wedding.... 2012

Our inspiration for this winter wedding came to a reality on New Year's Eve at Morgan Hill Event Center.  The ceremony took place in front of the stone mantel cover with candles and birch trees, hydrangeas, and a large clock set at midnight....

The tables were cover in a black underlay with a rhinestone overlay, with three cylinders of submerged and floating rannunculus, callas, anemone, tulips, polar star roses and candles...

The cocktail area we used silver bengaline linens with birch rounds and votives and "snow"

The bride carried david austin roses, black & white anemones, and polar star roses.  The men wore calla lilie boutonnieres, the flower girl stattered snowflakes down the candle lined aisle.  

Adam for High Tech DJs.... played until midnight when the balloons dropped and the new year began.
Photos were done by Kendra Pietras
