COLOR-COLOR-COLOR!!! Whats one of the 2012 colors this year?? Coral.. which was among the many colors that helped create this amazing sunset palette! Orange, coral, yellow, lime, greens, teal & blues… I was in heaven!!! From the contrasting orange bouquets against the blue gowns to the sweets display.. and all the modern preppy patterns .. you just have to visually take this one in please! Beathany – THANK YOU for inviting us to play on your day!!
Check out these bouquets by Flowers by Semia!! ..and from the bride “The flowers were insanely gorgeous. The mix of oranges in the bridesmaids’ bouquets popped against their teal dresses, and the flowers at the ceremony site far exceeded any expectations. The biggest surprise was the arrangement on the table with the escort cards. I’ve never seen such interesting flowers with so much texture!”
…and how did they keep Bethany’s gown spotless while touring Newport on a trolley? “To prevent spills, one of the new Moms gave the bride and groom a couple of unopened sippy cups.” Oh how cute that was!

Q. Finish this sentence: “One thing I learned from my wedding planning…”
Bethany. “is to enlist the groom’s help! Seriously, I had the most helpful groom in the entire world. My work schedule went a little haywire for the 3 weeks leading up to the week of the wedding and I was working about 100 hours/week. Rob stepped right up and took care of every single detail that he had the ability to help with. Was he going to write my vows or pick out the paper to mat the grandparent stories? Probably not. But, he made appointments, spoke with the venue, AND dealt with a very nervous future mother-in-law. I would give this wedding coordinator an A+.”
Q. The Wedding Cake
Bethany. We opted for a mini wedding cake so that we could do the ceremonial cake-cutting, but the main desserts consisted of many kinds of cupcakes and a full confections table and candy bar, by Sweet Indulgence. Everyone was talking about how beautiful the display was and how delicious the cake pops and other goodies were. LOVED!
Q. What was your favorite moment or aspect of the day?
Bethany. “Surprisingly, the best part of the entire day was the ceremony. We wrote the ceremony, including the vows, ourselves, and at some points I was cursing myself for taking on such a huge responsibility. However, it all paid off in spades. The ceremony had so much meaning and we both felt like we were the only 2 people there (what 170 people staring at us the entire time? Didn’t see them!) At one point when I was reading my vows, the guests laughed (at the appropriate time, thankfully), and I almost jumped in surprise because I forgot they were there!”
Oh how i love getting notes from our brides !!!
Bethany wrote “Kristin and Jared, what can I say? You guys were incredible to work with! You did a phenomenal job keeping in line a restless group of groomsmen on a pretty hot and bright summer afternoon as we took photos in Newport. You also handled some minor potential family conflict during formals like a pro – I might hit you up for some mediation advice in the future (just kidding, of course!). You even made me feel like a slightly sane person when responding to my panicked e-mails before the event when it looked like there was a chance a rain. So, while I love your work that I’ve seen for other weddings and really can’t wait to see all of the pictures from my own, your professionalism and interpersonal skills only help to propel you to far ahead of the pack. Thanks so much for everything, and I really look forward to seeing all of the photos!!”
