From the first time I met Devin it was clear she had a vision for the wedding she had been dreaming of from the time she was a little girl. Devin chose a beautiful lace Alvina Valenta gown with champagne sash. She envisioned the look of her wedding reflecting her dress. The look was elegant, romantic and somewhat whimsical. The couple wanted an elegant wedding yet easy and most of all fun for their family and friends. A perfectionist, Devin was hands on in creating so many of the details for her wedding. She and Brian were both involved in every aspect of the wedding. Devin hand painted over a hundred varied sized votives with a gold wash and wrapped each in different laces. The lace theme was repeated in various ways including all the cupcake wrappers. She made all the signage and table numbers and collected beautiful frames for them. The reception linens were a beautiful champagne ruched fabric that Devin rented from a bride that had them made for her own wedding. Great re-purposing. Floral was very important to Devin and she found the perfect match for her vision in Bliss Floral. Bliss created large spray arrangements on the reception tables with white heather, white carnations, white larkspur, white tulips, white statice, white Oriental lilies and white hydrangea. The bride’s bouquet was ivory hydrangea, champagne spray roses, gardenias, white anemones and ivory lisianthus.
The wedding day was sheer magic. In spite of threatening rain, in the last minutes before the ceremony the clouds parted, the sun peeked out and lit up the entire area. Guests enjoyed fabulous food, great wine and danced the night away to live music.
