Kristin & Thomas, Roger Williams Casino

Kristin & Thomas were married in September at Santo Christo Church in Fall River, MA. Their beautiful, classic reception followed at Roger Williams Casino in Providence, RI. The rich color palette featured gold and burgundy with hints of pink and ivory. Stoneblossoms created the breathtaking candelabra centerpieces and floral while Accentuations Floral Design provided the large crystal tree to 'wow' her guests during cocktail hour. The stationary and seating chart was designed created by yours truly while Bob Carpenter from Main Event Weddings created an impressive gobo to display during the reception. Thanks to all the amazing vendors who helped make Kristin & Tom's day such a success, especially Russ Morins & Main Event Weddings who were exceptional to work with. Enjoy and be inspired!

This custom linen for the sweetheart table was created by The Perfect Setting at Felicia's. We added crystals and burgundy ribbon to make it even more dramatic.

Nantucket Lightship, Newport, RI

This morning, I received an amazing tour of the Nantucket Lightship (thanks to the Rhode Island Wedding Group) and I had to immediately post my thoughts... what a hidden jewel!! Anyone who is looking to rent out a unique, extraordinary, historic venue, you must check this out. They service weddings, holiday parties, cocktail receptions, and can even charter small groups or a single couple for a romantic getaway. You'll be very impressed once you get past the exterior and once aboard, you won't want to leave!

For more information, email or visit the website where you can also take a video tour:

For a great article on the ship and it's restoration visit:

Sign Here...

By Leanne D.

Want a Guest Book everyone is sure to talk about? Many brides do but with all the other wedding details, it's often overlooked. Instead of sending your maid of honor out to grab one at Michaels 24 hours before the wedding, do something special that will truly welcome your guests. Here are a few great ideas to personalize your guest book. They may take a little more time to put together but they all have a lasting impression!

* A new twist on a classic quilt project - what home-ec class has never put a quilt together of favorite t-shirts or old pictures? Now you can take your guests well wishes to the couch.

*Print out mad lib cards where your guests can create funny stories to share on your special day. These are great in a scrap book and you can enjoy for years to come!

*“Leaf” a thumb print. Guests can use their thumb print to create leaves on your wedding tree and sign their name next to it. It instantly becomes a work of art!

*A guest book that keeps giving- or reminding! Never forget a birthday again, have your guests sign their special day on the calendar for you special day!

Mary & Blake, A Midsummer Night's Dream...

The one thing I knew about Mary & Blake from day one – that this couple was totally, immensely, in love. The more I came to know them, the more I saw that they were truly a perfect couple. They make each other stronger, happier, and they believe and support each other in every way. No matter what life threw at them during their planning – from a drop-out bridesmaid to multiple car accidents to having to change their wedding date entirely (!) – they persevered and they always made my job so much fun! When their wedding day came, I was honored to be there but I was also sad to know it was coming to an end. Luckily for me, I now have two more great people in my life that I can call friends.

Below are some spectacular highlights from their big day courteousy of Kevin Trimmer ( Enjoy and be inspired!

The wedding took place within Hotel Providence and Aspire. Guests were greeted by a bagpiper to pay tribute to their Irish heritage. They were informed of the day's wedding itinerary from a video we created for them; it was projected on the televisions throughout the hotel lobby and was done elegantly over their monogram. The floral bouquets consisted of fiddlehead ferns adorned with orchids.

The first look took place within the hotel's outdoor terrace. Blake and his father both wore yellow roses in remembrance of Blake's mother, it was her favorite flower.

Mary's father walked her down the aisle and also performed the ceremony.

What better transportation than a school bus for the music teacher??

The table names were names after some of the couples favorite places, real and fictional.

Since Mary is a musician, Blake surprised her with a customized ice sculpture. In turn, she surprised him with his very own customized cupcake toting the Macedonian shield - perfect for Blake, a true history buff who loves Alexander the Great. The cupcakes showcased fiddlehead ferns and were beautifully made and displayed by the Cupcake Contessa.

The entertainment and lighting was provided by George at CE DJ's who perfectly disrupted the first dance as Extraordinary Rendition Band busted in and surprised all the guests. As you can see here, the crowd ate it up! The last surprise of the night was for Mary; Blake booked our hotel room decor package so we dressed their hotel room in flowers, petals, candles & some bubbly for their first night together as Mr & Mrs.

This couple really did it right - a night full of suprises, food, festivities and fun! Congratulations again Mary & Blake, we already miss working with you!

A Lesson in Retro Glam

When discussing vintage style, most picture "Vintage Glam" - a style heavy with glamorous Rococo and Victorian influences (i.e., damask prints, lace, intricate curves, ruffles, ornate furniture and elaborate chandeliers). But let’s not forget the bold sister of Vintage Glam: Art Deco.

I know, I know – before you poo-poo Art Deco as nothing but tacky, pastel Cubism (yes, we all remember the awful 80’s revival) or cliché prom décor, hear me out! You’ll be amazed how these mainstream Art Deco elements can create a striking and ultra-crisp wedding.

If you’re a modern bride desiring a wedding with fewer frills, this period may be your answer. Art Deco emphasizes geometric shapes, patterns, powerful lines and symmetrical arrangements. For design cues, think The Great Gatsby and the Chrysler Building in NYC. To avoid looking gaudy, stay away from Broadway themes and flapper-girl extremes; stick with sleek accents (like chrome and metal tones) and statement onyx jewelry.

If you haven’t seen this style yet, be the first to jump on the trend for 2011. Your male guests will love the nod to stunning architecture and industrialism; your female guests will forever think of you as their coolest “city-chic” pal.

Pumpkin Patch

By Leanne D.

Its that time of year - pumpkins are taking over! I love fall-themed weddings with the warm colors of orange, red and yellow, and what better to evoke the feeling of fall than pumpkins. If you are thinking of having a fall wedding don't be afraid to add pumpkins in the mix. There are great ways to incorporate these natural elements without recreating a Charlie Brown movie. Want to keep it looking elegant? Try painting the pumpkins white and spraying them with glitter....the possibilities are endless!

Deidre & Phil ~ Cafe Nuovo, Providence, RI

Deidre & Phil were married this July at Waterplace Park. Their reception followed at Cafe Nuovo in the Rotunda. Deidre wanted feathers from the beginning which she incorporated tastefully in her floral, accessories and even her cupcake design. For all the rest, just look at her dress! Her wedding followed the same lines; elegant and fun, classic and unique. This event definitely had one of the best crowds of the season and such an amazing family. Congrats again Deidre & Phil and thanks for letting Infinite share in your beautiful day!
