Alaskan Peonies

June 9th, 2015 by Estelle Mays

“It’s no secret that peonies have exploded in popularity over the past decade and more, especially for weddings. It’s also no surprise. The classic peony palette of white, pink, blush, and deep red is of course perfect for weddings. With long, sturdy stems and large, frilly blooms, peonies combine dramatic impact from a distance with a soft, romantic look….”

Books of Love

June 1st, 2015 by Estelle Mays

BostonPublicLibrary wedding.

Bonding over their common interest in literature, Laura and Jason knew there was no better place to tie the knot than The Boston Public Library. Not only would they be surrounded by the most iconic love stories ever written, but the location of The Boston Public Library is close to the finish line of the Boston Marathon; a race both Jason and Laura participated in 2012 and 2013 respectively. In 2014 they ran the race together from start to finish to raise money for a friend whom was wounded in the tragic bombings in 2013.

Winston Flowers adorned the tables with beautiful florals in varying shades of pink. The lounge area designed by Reserve Modern Event Rental was the perfect place for guests to cozy up while nibbling on the hors d’oeuvres passed by The Catered Affair.  As seen at Bliss Celebrations.
