Merek + Rusty – Boston Winery

Rusty and Merek were married on Friday of July 4th weekend at the lovely Boston Winery, setting the tone for their simple with a rustic touch wedding.  I absolutely loved every minute of their day as this sweet, kind couple were married in the most intimate way with just 80 guests.  There is something so special about small weddings!  And seeing this couple so calm and in the moment was such a beautiful thing to experience and I am still beaming just thinking about them!

Guests first arrived at Venezia, located next door to the winery, for a pre-cocktail hour before heading over for the ceremony.  The ceremony was held in the barrel room where the wine is made, stored and bottled by hand.  The room was transformed into a romantic setting with votives on top of the wine barrels surrounding the room and columns wrapped with ivory vines and twinkle lights.  The couple was married by a dear friend and while staying true to their simplicity,  the bridal party consisted of Merek’s sister as her maid of honor and Rusty’s cousin as the best man, and Merek’s niece and Rusty’s daughter as their flower girls.

Fall In Love

Hello fellow New Englander’s!  It’s that time of year again- the leaves have started to change color, the air is crisp and cool, and the anticipation of the holiday’s is starting to set in. I’m sure you have a lot of plans in the works with Halloween and Thanksgiving right around the corner! So if you are planning a Fall wedding you might consider playing off of Autumn’s beauty by incorporating its natural elements to make your special day just as beautiful. Here are some ideas that we loved:

1) Choose your color scheme and take advantage of the bold and vibrant colors of the leaves; reds, oranges, yellows, browns, purples.  Playing with warm, contrasting colors like crimson and gold, cream and wine, or neutrals with pops of color, will set the tone of the day. Incorporate colors into every aspect- napkins, centerpieces, bridesmaids dresses, groomsmen ties, and anything else that needs a color. The fallen leaves, colors, and scenery create an atmosphere that you and your guests will love.
