Nancy Gorman, owner of Makeup by Nancy A Bohemian Chic style wedding has become a popular trend and lately and, we, a group of New England wedding professionals collaborated together and created a styled shoot that provided a different twist on it then the normal neutrals, greens and cream colors. We wanted to keep with the eclectic mix of hippie {peace & love}, nomad and gypsy lifestyle with an artistic flair. We chose to use deep purple, burgundy and white as the primary colors with added splashes of vibrant pinks, oranges and greens for an eye-catching pop of color. To…

By Nancy Gorman, owner of Makeup by Nancy Once upon a time there used to be a “wedding season” such as the freshness of the June Bride or the vibrancy of the autumn leaves. I’m finding now there is no real wedding season now. Weddings are 12 months a year. Which is certainly good for the wedding professionals for sure! Lately there have been a barrage of winter weddings, photo’s done wearing a faux fur shawl or shrug outside with the winter snow falling on you or indoors next to a roaring fireplace. A small group of New England wedding…

August 23rd, 2014 Rye, NH No detail went unnoticed in Jessica and Anthony’s wedding, even the date. Jessica, who admits “there wasn’t a detail I wasn’t involved in,” researched weather data and selected their wedding day based on the date which historically had the best weather on the New Hampshire Seacoast. She chose well. The weather was beautiful for their ceremony and reception, held at Rye Harbor State Park, in Rye, NH. The site was a perfect fit with their “by the sea” theme. Jessica enjoyed the do-it-yourself aspect of wedding planning, creating bud vases from Perrier bottles with her…

September 27th, 2014 Camden, ME Laura and Chris wanted a waterfront wedding celebration evoking a festive, black and gold-themed cocktail party for themselves, their friends, and family, many of whom – on Chris’s side – were traveling from the Netherlands. Laura’s family has lived in and around Camden, ME, for five generations so the Camden Yacht Club, where Laura learned to sail as a girl, was a logical choice for their ceremony and reception. An added celebratory touch: the Camden International Film Festival coincided with the wedding weekend, drawing hundreds of visitors, in addition to the couple’s wedding guests, to…

What do you do about wedding details that, well, you haven’t thought about? Our wedding experts answer questions you must ask before your big day. Q: What’s my real budget? A: It’s easy to have one large number in mind for your wedding budget. But it’s a different story when you start breaking that budget down, line item by line item. “People should ask themselves what kind of food they’re interested in, whether they want a DJ or a live band, how intricate do they want the table settings to be and so on,” says Kate Martin, owner of Beautiful…
