Portuguese Inspired New England Shoreline Wedding... Pedro and Jennifer

Inspiration/Color/Mood BoardWedding Day Details

I had the opportunity to collaborate on a really special wedding this summer with Jennifer and Pedro, who were planning their wedding from Portugal. This was my first experience in communicating via Skype, and besides coordinating times when we were both awake, it never felt that like they were that far away.

The color palette we chose helped to combine the bold colors of the Portuguese tiles and the warmth of the sunset and the shoreline community in Mystic and bright color of lobsters. Was the perfect blend of details to make it unique to both of them, true to their culture and tradition, and an event guests would always remember.

Some of my favorite details from this wedding.

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.
