Tara + James | The Stone Barn at Sebago Lake

Tara + James married on September 29th at The Stone Barn. The Stone Barn is a part of St. Joseph’s College and is situated at Sebago Lake in Standish, Maine. She of the Woods & Malorrie Ann Photography photographed the day.

Tara’s bouquet was wild and textural with rich, varying tones of yellow, tan, taupe and chocolate. We incorporated Crocosmia pods, Miscanthus grass, Seeded Eucalyptus and Copper Beech leaves to give Tara’s bouquet volume and interest.

Karina + Seth Marry at Live Well Farm

Karina is an identical twin. I didn’t know this until I arrived on site at Live Well Farm and handed the bridal bouquet to the her, only to see (who I thought was) her again a few hours later holding a Bridesmaid bouquet and wearing a white gown. Their resemblance was incredible!

Karina + Seth met in College at Northeastern and moved to Cambridge. Karina grew up in Spruce Head, Maine and still returns to visit friends and family. Choosing Maine as a destination for their wedding seemed to be a no brainer. Live Well Farm is located in Harpswell, Maine- just a short drive from the town of Brunswick, where Bowdoin College is.

Karina opted for subdued colors; muted shades of mauve, taupe and sand. We used ‘Amnesia’, ‘Quicksand’ and ‘Sahara’ Roses with accents of wine colored Ranunculus and Sarracenia orchids.

 We loved that the Bridesmaids and Bride all wore shades of  white.

Tori + Steve chose The Breakwater Inn in Kennebunkport, Maine for their ceremony and reception location. They lived in Boston and were looking for a destination venue convenient for their guests to travel to with the space to accommodate them all.

Heidi Brisette, owner of SHE Luxe Weddings was the mastermind behind this wedding. The design was all about romantic white flowers and dripping, vining, greenery.

The clear top tent had hanging structures with draping greenery and Hanging Amaranthus.

The Delphinium Peddler

A customer called us the other day to order flowers. While I took her order, she recalled how she used to buy Delphinium from Amy for $1/ stem many years ago. This was the first I'd heard of it. 

Amy grew up in California where she experienced the magic of flowers in bloom year round but it wasn't until after she had gone to college (where she studied Art Education), then worked as a boat broker, got married and settled down before she revisited her love of flowers and plants. 

She got her start when she bought 700 Hybrid Delphinium plants from Ball Seed (their minimum at the time) and planted them in a 800 square foot garden beside her garage. She grew the cut flowers and sold them to neighbors and Skillin's Greenhouses.

It was from then that Amy got attention for her gardening and floral design talents. Not long after, she booked her first wedding and garden design client and the rest is history. 

 

Pink + Plaid

Eliza + Tim married at Live Well Farm in Harpswell, Maine on October 7, 2017. Live Well Farm is a quaint venue once owned by native-Mainer Patrick Dempsey from Grey's Anatomy

1007_jamiemercuriophoto_eliza+tim2017-117.jpg

Live Well Farm is nestled on five acres near the sea in Harpswell, Maine. It's large enough to accommodate a tent with 200 guests but also cozy enough for a more intimate reception.

Eliza's vision was executed by The Purple Orchid. Eliza chose a beautiful pink wedding dress and wanted rich, fall tones with an emphasis on plaid. Eliza and Tim even coerced their guests to partake in the theme by adorning themselves in the plaid of their choice. 

Eliza was a breath of fresh air for us as designers. She really allowed us to creatively express her vision without much restraint. We chose beautiful flowers ranging from soft peaches and pinks to richer, deeper tones of pimento and plum.

  There is no denying this is a match made in heaven.
