Gosh I don't even know where to start with this one. When Abby first came to me to help with the design/coordination of her wedding I was so honored at the opportunity to collaborate with her in planning her wedding day. From the minute she walked in the door I knew we were going to have a blast!

Abby is the face behind, Life in the Super Burbs and also a writer for Style Me Pretty, two of my favorite blogs to follow. I knew this wedding was going to be something special, and it was everything and more! No detail was missed and the team of vendors involved were some of the top talents in the industry. Abby and Andrew had one of the best days this summer with clear bright blue skies and shining sun. The Ocean House in Rhode Island, a dream venue, set the backdrop for one of my favorite color palettes, butter yellow, and aqua accents.

Telling the story of Abby & Andrew... how they met, fell in love, and tidbits of information about their relationship made the wedding truly unique. Guests were surrounded by design details of capiz shells, candles, flowers, and place settings. And more importantly reminders of this incredible couple and their love for one another, in subtle details spread throughout, in the fun facts on the back of the menus, the buttons that were attached to the escort cards, love quotes on the coasters... All of the thought, planning and love that went into designing this huge celebration was a true reflection of them as a couple.


I was SO excited to see Abby and Andrew's wedding featured this week on Style Me Pretty. Also Abby did a day by day breakdown of all of the details and planning that went into the wedding on Life in the Super Burbs. You must check it out! A real behind the scenes of the inspiration to reality of the wedding.

But before you go take a look at this highlights video by the oh so talented Julie of Elysium Productions.
