This bohemian romance styled wedding was so much fun to put together! Working with a team of awesome creatives were we able to breathe bohemian romance into this newly opened venue called Alnoba . Couples who are looking for the perfect barn wedding have everything they could want in this breath taking setting just a short drive from downtown Newburyport. The barn itself is a site to behold as it was reconstructed from 168-year-old timber frames and placed perfectly in the heart of Kensington Nh. Barn weddings are still a thriving trend and this local barn on the border of Massachusetts & New Hampshire offers a genuine barn experience without having to travel too far North.
Freebird photography was able to capture the essence of the day and all the details so beautifully. Her ability to capture rare intimate & candid moments between her couples is so well done and the emotions & details of the day really shine through her perspective.
In keeping with our boho theme we went on a hunt for the perfect bohemian dress. Ramona from Bella Bridal Shoppe in Amebury, Ma was so wonderful to work with and guided us to find the perfect dress. As soon as we saw "Patchouli" from Claire Pettibone's Romantique collection, we knew we had to have it. It was graceful, poetic, and bohemian all wrapped into one.
Being in charge of the florals was my absolute pleasure. Flowers often set the tone & create the mood and aesthetic of the day. Using large King Protea, cascading greenery and free-spirited designs our true flare for garden style florals shined through. We also used a good amount of roses but wanted to utilize them in a way that wasn't uptight, balled up and traditional. Compote style vase choice allows the flowers to flow and drape, echoing their natural shape and form adding depth to the tablescape. For the finishing touch we love to add quirky and earthy details to compliment the flowers like a scattering of gem stones & crystals placed about the table.
The paper creatives, SimplyB and Janis Snell Calligraphy, worked together to bring the place settings to life. By adding an element of watercolor, feather graphics, and gold calligraphy,these two helped us carry out the Bohemian Romance theme flawlessly. The invitation suite was on another level of perfection and consistency, with a thick textured envelope liner accompanied by gold, blush and mauve tones and the ever-so-perfect calligraphed script. They also worked together to create a beautiful favor table with seed packets, arrow charms and a charming calligraphed sign.
The whole day couldn't have been executed without the priceless experience brought to the shoot by Tiffany Learned owner of Detailed Engagements. Every step of the way Tiffany was already 5 steps ahead overseeing all facets of the creative process making sure all pieces of the day came together in a perfect manner. Her behind the scenes magic really made for a smooth & stress free day.
All in all such a lovely experience and I would be so happy to work with this team again and again in the upcoming wedding season!
