Throw Back Thursday – A Blush and White Summer Wedding in Rhode Island with Soirée Floral and Brea McDonald Photography
Each week we take a look back at a wedding we’ve done and each week we’re always reminded of wedding trends, the ones that stay true and the ones that go in and out with the times.
Neither of those are bad, of course – we love some wedding trends just as much as the next girl, but it is nice to see what sticks around even after six years have past.
This week we’re sharing some details from a white and blush wedding we designed for a Nantucket girl who moved to Rhode Island and took her local vendors with her! Blush and white are still mainstays in our wedding palettes and offer a nice, soft look with a touch of girliness.
We used the bounty of the season and made daisy letter “wreaths” to flank the entrance of the bride’s family home that the couple said their “I Do’s” at. Flowing ribbon were hung on the backs of the ceremony chairs in shades of pink and peach danced in the summer wind while the trees around the ceremony were adorned with wreaths to mark the “altar”. The flower girl carried a Nantucket basket filled with larkspur blooms as a nod to Liz’s hometown.
The reception took place at the family’s country club on the shore where our blooms were the perfect accent to the ocean view and the beadboard walls. One detail of note was the candlescape we created on the mantle (wait ’til you see the seahorse sculpture!) – it definitely had a wow factor as the sun set.
It was such a pleasure to travel with our team and create this beautiful wedding for our bride and groom. Enjoy!
