What got me thinking today was inspiration - and how cool it is to work with so many different brides and watch where their individual inspiration comes from.
Last year I worked with a bride who studied birds and who knew names of birds I have never heard of. She decided to incorporate birds into her table names, place cards, cake topper and even centerpieces. The birds also flew throughout her invitations and ceremony programs. The wedding was beautiful, creative and classic.
Polka Dots & Sparkles
Next year I am working with a bride who loves polka dots and sparkles!! (Who doesn't really?) Her inspiration is drawn from her fun loving attitude about life and her personal goal of having a wedding that is fun, but classic and beautiful at the same time. I think we can make that happen!
Being on the Cape it is hard not to find inspiration from the beautiful beaches. From sand to shells, sea glass to beach grass, I have worked with it all. When couples have planned a destination wedding on Cape Cod it is always great to be able to show your guests the Cape through hydrangea centerpieces, starfish place cards and a Cape Codder signature drink - all to the tune of ones personality though!
Last year I worked with a family who had a back yard reception the night before and the night after their wedding at Wychmere Harbor. Their back yard was filled with beautiful gardens and one of the gardens was dedicated to their daughter who had passed away. The centerpieces at the reception were inspired by the garden and were filled with beautiful assortment of flowers they typically grew in her garden.
