Real Wedding: Jean & Bill at Squantum Association

For our last wedding of 2013, we had the pleasure of working with Jean and Bill Dolan on their amazing ceremony and reception at Squantum Association on November 30th. Upon meeting the couple, it was clear to everyone around them how in love they were! Their love radiates and can light up any room; we knew it was going to be a beautiful union.

It was a gorgeous, crisp, fall day outside and the ceremony was held facing the water during the sunset. 

Jean is a musician, so it was essential that their music played an important role throughout the day. The ceremony processional was timed perfectly to a song played by the New England String Quartet; it was a great personal touch.  

The ceremony had many other personal touches such as a Musical Mediation and a unity candle ceremony. Jean and Bill also brought tears to the eyes of their guests when they said a Reflection towards one another, that were so beautifully written and very well said. 

As the evening progressed, guests walked over to the Bakehouse; an incredible room on its own but with the help of the gorgeous flowers provided by Stoneblossom, the amazing cake by Confectionary Designs, and decor that they chose, it was a truly elegant event.

 During the reception, music was provided by the band Total Groove, which was a total hit. Guests danced all night and had a wonderful time.

The evening was a beautiful reflection of their love for each other and we are so glad we could be apart of it!

~Wedding Question Wednesday~ Unique Ways to "Pop the Question"!

Question: What are some unique and creative ways to propose?

Answer: During the winter months, it's cold, it's dreary, and most people are sitting and dreaming of warmer weather and fun times to come. But for us "wedding people", we like to think the opposite! This is the time of year we like to call "Engagement Season", because statistics show that many people pop the big question during these months. Want to make yours unique? It is important to remember that this moment is about your partner, and you two as a couple. After all, it's the little things that count, so be sure to pay attention to the details to make this moment extra special! Here are some fun and unique ideas we love:

Scavenger hunts that involve your favorite places, hobbies, friends and family! 

In her (or your!) favorite book, and when she opens it there is a hallowed out heart with the ring inside! (Can be purchased on Etsy!)

Pour her a cup of Joe with a little surprise on the mug!

You can even incorporate your favorite four-legged friend!

Photobooth surprises are an easy way to make it in intimate moment, but still have pictures to keep forever.

~Wedding Question Wednesday~ Best Indoor Photo Locations in the RI/Boston Area?

This Week's Question: What are some indoor engagement photo locations in the Rhode Island/Boston area?

Answer: There are many beautiful locations throughout Rhode Island or in the Boston area that are suitable for engagement photos. Whether you are looking for casual photos at a local spot, or a more formal location there are plenty to choose from. Although, be mindful that most locations require permission for photography and some charge a fee. Some of our favorites are: The Providence Public Library (1 hour for a fee of $150), the Rhode Island State House (3 hours for a fee of $200), and the Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum (fee TBD).  Engagement photos do not always need to be formal, why not take them in your favorite restaurant or place to visit? Just be sure to check with the management to make sure its okay.
