We’re busy typing away and dreaming up some gorgeous spring and summer weddings at the moment and we’re reminded of sunnier days and greener grass (where is the grass at this point? All we see is snow!) So, today, we’re throwing it back to a gorgeous green and white late summer, early fall wedding that took place at Whales Watch and The ‘Sconset Casino. Believe it or not, a hurricane was arriving to our little island that day, so their original tented reception on the lawn at Whales Watch was moved indoors to the ‘Sconset Casino. This is where hiring professionals comes in handy – you can’t tell “Plan B” was executed in these photos, can you?
Green and white is such an effortless and gorgeous look – perfect for either a laid-back or formal wedding. This bride and groom kept the ceremony simple, with green and whites with a chuppah on the cliff at Whales Watch.
At the reception, we continued the green and white palette and added pops of purple and silver.
These designs were mixed amongst the tables featuring mercury glass vessels, tall arrangements on tabletop candelabras and moss and lavender orbs for interest and texture.
The rentals from Placesetters, Inc. really added to the elegance of the table with the etched glass plates and silver glitter chargers and silver satin linens. We added a sprig of dried lavender to each placesetting and tied the napkins with raffia.
The escort display featured our antiqued mirrors, tons of candlelight and potted lavender plants.
(You may also remember these mirrors from our Season’s Bounty portfolio on our website.)
The mix of garden-inspired and formal elegance kept the overall look of the reception looking thoughtful but not over the top. We love it when clients want to mix together two types of style to create a more personal look for their wedding day.
The cake, created by Jodi’s Cakes, featured ribbon-esque fondant and was topped with green hydrangea and surrounded by the bridal party’s bouquets.
