Nikita & Laura came to me in December looking for someone to be there the day of their event to make sure everything went smoothly. I am so glad they decided to work with me because their event was beautiful!
With specialty linens from Rentals Unlimited, gorgeous flowers from a family friend who flew in from Texas and put them together in their hotel room(!) and the unique setting of the Cape Cod Museum of Art - it was a picture perfect day.
The photos I captured below from my iPhone do not even do the trick as Julia Cumes was there and captured the whole event from the vows to the beach and the African dancing!
Popponesset Inn 10/10/10
I had my first wedding at the Popponesset Inn on 10/10/10 with a fabulous couple, Erin & Eric. The day was picture perfect and the location was more than I could ask for.
Having never been to the Popponesset before (I live in Yarmouth Port, so New Seabury for me is a hike!!) I did not know what to expect. Upon arrival I felt as if I was in another world, the landscaping is beautiful and the Inn is literally a stones throw away from the water - come to find out after Erin & Eric's wedding. After having a first meeting with Aaron - the catering manager at the Popponesset - back in September, I knew the day would run smoothly.
Erin & Eric had planned a very unique wedding with all sorts of fun ideas up their sleeves. I just came in to make sure all of their ideas came to fruition without any stress.
From home made quoahog place cards and DIY centerpieces to their own self-logoed rap name temporary tattoos and homemade programs, I think that Erin & Erin win the prize this year for creativity and cost cutting ideas. After their ceremony in the tent on the water at the Poppy they had all of their guests go out to the beach with a stone and say a prayer or a wish for couple and throw it into the water - an old Irish blessing, which is very unique!! But, I am pretty sure that the rap the couple performed as their entrance music was a first and a last for me, and probably the most awesome entrance I have ever witnessed by a bride and groom.
To top it all off they worked with some great vendors too!! Gary from Cape Tunes, Jennifer Gunn, Bob Kahan, and Cakes by Catheren just to name a few!
Thanks to everyone for making this such a great event. I can't wait to recommend Aaron and the Popponesset to future Cape Cod brides!
Harun & Austin - Orleans, MA
Harun & Austin came to me early in 2011 requesting assistance for their small Cape Cod wedding which they were hoping to plan in Provincetown. After some research and budget realizations they ended up renting a great house in Orleans with a beautiful view for their rehearsal dinner & ceremony and held their reception at theCaptain Linnell House and everything worked out perfectly! The weather was beautiful, the food for the rehearsal dinner and small cocktail hour before dinner at the house from Far Land Provisions was wonderful, and the reception with flowers by Meredith Fancy and tunes by Scott Rosenthal were just what the couple was looking for. They even had Cape Cod Lollicake truffles for each guest as their favors - my favorite! I also loved their cupcake tree from Cottage Street Bakery - yum!
Even though the event was small, it had a lot of moving pieces - from a rehearsal dinner, henna artist and karaoke at the rental house the day before to the ceremony and mini cocktail hour at the rental house, to photos on the beach, and a reception at the Captain Linnell House - it was a busy couple of days!
Plan. Relax. Enjoy.
