Rain or Shine... Wedding Umbrellas and Parasols are 'IN'!

One of our favorite 2013 trends is using umbrellas and parasols as props at your event.  Whether hanging from a tent, propped up over a food or sweet station as decor, or within your formal photos, they can add color and give your wedding just the right amount of whimsy.  Here are some examples or umbrellas at their best - find and rent some amazing styles at

Nursery Rhyme Themed Baby Shower, Mike & Lisa Sullivan ~ Newton, MA

A year after Mike & Lisa Sullivan's Bridal Shower, we once again had the pleasure of planning another stepping stone in the couple's life. What better way to celebrate bringing a new baby girl to an adoring family other than a Nursery Rhyme themed Baby Shower? The beautiful Boston Newton Marriot in Newton, Massachusetts was the perfect location. Anna Marcangelo, soon-to-be Grandmother choked back tears as she arrived to the venue. We had a ton of fun designing our "Cow Jumped over the Moon" candy station and our "Twinkle Twinkle" desert buffet for the mother-to-be.  The soft pink and gold really reflected how precious this baby girl will be and both buffets were showered with all different elements from our childhood Nursery Rhymes:
  • Ba Ba Black Sheep Cake Pops
  • Little Lamb White Chocolate Lolli's
  • Cow Jumped Over the Moon Mobile
  • Mother Goose Eggs (Jelly Beans)
  • Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star Sugar Cookies
Incorporated with all of those delicious treats were "Little Bo Peep" and "Humpty Dumpty" ID tags, some nursery rhyme books, and a matching banner. The beautiful centerpieces were  provided by Hummingbird's Floral; we added pins to each centerpiece's ribbon to play up the theme and adorned each table with a quote from a favorite Nursery Rhyme in a gold frame.  The baby pink napkins at each place setting gave a little splash of color and additional "Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice" sugar bowl favors were provided by the grandmother-to-be.  What a sweet way to start a new beginning!

Infinite was so honored to be part of this celebration, thank you Anna for the opportunity to work with you again!

Roxane & Steve - Lucky in Love

"Romantic meets country-chic" was the feel for this wedding and what better place to get married than at Bittersweet Farm!  The beautiful bride, Roxanne, was inspired throughout her planning by her love for horses.  She arrived to the ceremony in a horse and carriage and also chose horseshoe escort cards/favors to complete her 'lucky in love' theme. For all of you country gals, we hope you are inspired!

Wedding Feature, Carrie & Adam ~ Fort Getty, Jamestown, RI

What can we say about Carrie and Adam except  that they were utterly IN LOVE!!  Carrie is a fashion designer in NYC {check it!} and Adam is in advertising there so of course, this wedding was chic, hot, and fun!  Though they had already planned their wedding, we were lucky enough to work with them as their day-of coordinator and every moment working with them reminded us of why we have the best jobs on the planet.  Great weddings always start with a great proposal and this one is absolutely charming... just like them.

"... one day I was cooking and Carrie was sewing and she meant to say "sometimes my friends ask me why I don't ask you to marry me", but what she actually said was "sometimes my friends ask me... will you marry me?". I was somewhat taken aback, but the answer was immediate: "Yes. Yes? Yes! Yes!!!". We jumped around the apartment together, both surprised and beaming, then kind of confused: what had we done? were we really engaged? did that count? So we changed our status on Facebook to make it really official :) " - Adam

The wedding was at Fort Getty in Jamestown, RI which overlooks the Narragansett Bay. 

During the ceremony there was not a dry eye in the house.  As they read their personal vows to each other, it was as if they were the only two people on the planet; best friends, lovers, soul mates, and absolutely perfect for each other.  
The ceremony was followed by a tented reception and a real RI clambake that included an unveiling for the guests.  "Some of this wedding we wanted to be traditional (a move that would surprise many of our friends), but we wanted a ceremony and celebration that reflected our relationship and what marriage meant to us personally." - Adam

Each place setting included a sheet of origami paper and instructions on how to assemble.  Guests loved it!

At the end of the evening, Adam's parents presented the couple with a beautiful wedding gift they actually brought with them from England. 

"A few shout outs to vendors we used and would happily recommend to anyone:
  • Andria Medeiros from Infinite Events for her organization, invaluable experience, people herding skills and general awesomeness 
  • McGrath's, wonderful people who do,  bar none, THE BEST clambakes you can get
  • Valerie Kitchen for being an enthusiastic and organized photographer with an artist's eye and talent for getting people where she wanted them without being pushy
  • Sayles Livingston for perfectly capturing our personalities with her breathtaking flower arrangements that were elegant and timeless, while at the same time eclectic and surprising
  • Tom Rohde, a talented guitarist who played wonderful classical, Spanish and Brazilian music through the ceremony and cocktail hour
  • Rick Lataille at Arpeggio Entertainment, our DJ who was a consummate professional, held it down spectacularly through the reception and was very patient with our pickiness about music
  • Karen Clavet, a family friend who went way above and beyond by providing the delicious cupcakes that our guests raved about afterwards (and many of which they pocketed after the reception)
  • Kristine DeSerres and her fiancee Christian who were our wonderfully enthusiastic and accommodating bartenders
  • Donna at Hallman Septic for her friendly customer service and the fanciest portable toilets I've ever had the pleasure of using
  • DuPlooy's Jungle Lodge in Belize for organizing the greatest honeymoon EVER
-Adam and Carrie"
