Rustic Elegance

On 11/11/11 I was lucky enough to work with Beth and Rama on their gorgeous rusticly elegant wedding.

Enjoying the (albeit cool) break in the rain!

The day started off gray and misty, but just as the ceremony was about to begin the sun put in an appearance.

The sun broke just before the ceremony began!

The ceremony took place at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Keene, NH and the reception at Alyson’s Orchard. (

Over my years in business I have been lucky enough to work at Alyson’s Orchard dozens of times. It is a lovely venue for a rustic wedding. Beth was a wonderfully creative bride and was able to really transform the space into something extra special.

Sharing a quiet moment

Birch, which is the NH state tree, is often a popular choice for decor.  There were some really fun elements including this log we used for the escort cards.

By wood burning the table numbers into birch wood, the theme was continued.

However, real show stopper was this amazing cake with a three-dimensional birch tree climbing up the side. Beth worked extensively with Denise from Tastefully Wright Cakes  to bring her vision to life, and what a vision it was!

This birch style cake was as delicious as it was lovely!

Not only was the decor wonderful, but Beth and Rama were such a great couple to work with. Fun, enthusiastic and totally and completely in love. Their families were excited to be sharing the day with them and the wonderful team of wedding professionals that we assembled for this day brought everything together perfectly.

Unique New England Weddings

Shabby chic, eclectic, vintage, rustic; these are all words we hear associated with weddings. What does it really mean though? It means making your wedding unique to you, with special touches that keep the celebration from being a “wedding in a box”.

Lovely antique blue jars give a nice touch to this table

New England is the perfect place with farms, orchards, barns, historic buildings or a lovely tent there are many options to create that perfect mix of rustic and elegant.  We are seeing some trends over the last few seasons that are continuing on now. Mixing and matching centerpieces is a great way to bring some fun to the decor. Why not shop around at garage sales and thrift stores for vases and containers that speak to you? Varying heights and widths can help make a space look more interesting.

 For the last few years cupcakes have been popular to serve as an alternative to traditional wedding cake, but how about individual cakes for each table that also serve as a centerpiece? Guests could have a fun time mingling at other tables to see what flavors are served there!
