Why My Wedding Bouquet Is Now A Piece of My History

bouquet made up of unique personal brooches

My now husband Todd, popped the question on Christmas Eve 2016; I was completely surprised! The next day, we joined my family at their home to celebrate the holiday and our engagement. That day I told my mother that I wanted to have brooch bouquet. Of all the decisions to come, I had that one figured out. I knew I had wanted that type of bouquet for some time, I had seen them in magazines and I really liked the way they looked. I started by ordering a few brooches online – a cat brooch, a rooster brooch and a…

August 15th, 2015 Portland, ME Margie and Matt got engaged in an Oregon vineyard on Halloween 2014. There was nothing spooky about their wedding at The Portland Company, on the waterfront. The ceremony and reception were held in separate rooms in the building. “It’s a raw industrial space,” says Margie. “We fell in love with it.” A former event planner, Margie planned the wedding herself. The venue doesn’t have furniture so she rented tables, chairs and place settings from One Stop Party Shop in Portland; she arranged a small lounge seating area, with chairs, a couch and vintage items from…

September 19th, 2015 York, ME Celeste and Gordon’s wedding was a true family affair. They both come from large families and wanted to accommodate as many people as possible at their wedding; they also wanted to get married in Maine. “We looked at venues up and down the coast and decided on my parents’ home for sentimental reasons,” says Celeste. “It was a nice opportunity to work with them on what turned out to be the perfect wedding.” Stacking wood, digging up rocks, staining an outdoor deck: not the romantic details many brides think of when planning a wedding, but…

September 19th, 2015 Portsmouth, NH Ashleigh and Evan kept one thought in mind as they planned their wedding: this is about us, and we’re going to do what we want to do. They stayed true to themselves as they said their vows on the Memorial Bridge in Portsmouth, a historic landmark in a city that means so much to them. The ceremony was private with just the officiant (who was Ashleigh’s uncle), the best man and the maid of honor—exactly how they wanted it, although they did allow their waiting family and friends to view the nuptials live with the…

September 19, 2015 Groton, MA Planning a wedding can be challenging, but planning a wedding from thousands of miles away would daunt even an experienced event planner.

The couple’s families handled much of the planning. Jackie’s mother visited venues in Boston. A friend from Chicago, Tyler…

Erika arrived at the ceremony with her bridesmaids in a vintage Volkswagon van. She was initially nervous. “When I walked down the aisle with my dad…

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…

August 29, 2015 Dover, NH Karen and Charlie dated for eight years before he proposed the day after Christmas. A pilot, Charlie got home at 2 a.m. Karen waited up for him. When Charlie insisted that she open a few of her gifts, Karen reluctantly agreed. One of them was a ring. “I saw it and thought ‘oh no, here I am wearing my reindeer pajamas and he’s proposing’!” she says. The couple wanted a relaxed wedding, “nothing typical,” Karen says. She discovered Three Rivers Farm, a large estate in Dover, while researching vacation homes. The property’s beautiful wooded setting,…
