Cooperstown, New York wedding


















Summer is finally here and in August our design team is headed up to the Farmer's Museum in Cooperstown, New York to design Caitlin and Mike's wedding.  (They are one of our 2010 deserving couple winners)


Caitlin was extremely lucky to get a stunning wedding gown from The White Dress by the Shore and Modern Trousseau. 

What can I say.... except that the gown raised the bar for the look and feel of the wedding!


I believe that your guests should be wowed as they enter your reception with a great entrance piece, which is usually the escort card table/display or a wonderful hors d'oeuvre table. (or both)


We'll be hanging green oxidized metal lanterns from the earthy wood beams of the barn for her reception and lots of candles to her tables.  Low centerpieces will be overflowing with lavender dahlias, mini green hydrangea, 'cool water' roses, 'super green' cabbage roses and unripe raspberries.  They'll be in a lovely footed chocolate/bronze color metal urn and touches of fresh mint surrounding them.  Sweet sophistication and romance will fill this wedding!








ABC cakes will be designing an amazing cake for the couple and we'll be adding touches of flowers to the top of it.  We are teaming up with Cookie creatives to create a fabulous candy station with touches of vintage charm and candies handmade right in New England (including rock candy and fruit slices).  I stopped by Ocean State Job Lot for some incredible glass jars with wooden tops for displaying the candies.  (they have wonderful bargains on things like that!) Honestly, it's kind of hit or miss.... so I tend to stop a few times a week when I'm in the search for something.  I also picked up a few rolls of natural twine.  (to twist around the stems of bouquets and adding that touch of country rustic charm to boutonnieres)


This is her inspiration board she put together.  I'm completely in LOVE with all the details of this wedding!  We are so very fortunate that Justin and Mary Marantz will be capturing every little gorgeous detail. 


She along with a friend designed a simple and very pretty wedding invitation.  With deep sky blue writing and flower motif at the bottom... I'm in love!  She's going to create DIY menu cards to match that will be tucked into every guests' napkin.
