Portugal Inspired, New England Lobster Bake Wedding
I started working with miss Jennifer about 6 months ago when she contacted me to see if I would be available to help her design and coordinate her wedding at the Mystic Seaport. It was the first client that I have had that I never met throughout the process. We planned everything remotely while she was living in Portugal. It was an immediate connection and we have had such fun in designing her wedding and really personalizing the details to make it unique to her and her fiance, Pedro. Throughout the planning I never felt disconnected from her or that we were that far away. She even introduced me to Skype,which is the coolest thing!
I am really excited about Jennifer and Pedro's upcoming wedding and just had to give you a sneak peak at some of the fabulous details. (more to come...)
1. Rice Paper votive holders from Luna Bazaar, will be used as individual vases filled with white flowers on the tables that guests will take as their favor at the end of the night.
2. Lighting: a mix of silk lanterns from Om Gallery and Paper Stars will glow throughout the rafters of the boat shed.
3. Personalized Lobster Bibs, with their names and date stamped by the bride will be at each place setting.
4. Natural Burlap Runners will accent the tables giving texture to the white linens, and cobalt blue chargers will be reflective of a Portuguese Tile.
