Sophie & Mike Featured in Bliss Celebrations Magazine

We are so happy to have two of our weddings featured in Bliss Celebrations Magazine! The first – a contemporary take on an enchanted forest theme – took place at the Ritz Carlton in Boston. Because we love a challenge, we were very excited when Sophie told us she wanted to transform the elegant Ritz Carlton into a fairytale forest. Before we show you the details, just look at how adorable these two are – and how wonderfully Moss and Isaac captured their love in this image.

Let’s start with these glorious bouquets, which really showcase Cat’s ability to weave grasses and create drama with just a few simple things. Using just lily grass, phaleonopsis, dendrobium and ingenuity, these beauties were born. Sophie was quoted as saying her European bouquets “stole the show.”

For the ceremony, we created a woodland chuppah of birch with hydrangea and David Austin garden roses. We kept the lines simple and elegant to complement the clean lines and geometric carpet, rather than compete with the style of the room. We lined Sophie’s aisle runner with softly scented rose petals in ivory.

The escort card table features a tower of hollowed birch with callas and green trick dianthus. Floating candles in clear glass and a statement arrangement of callas and willow, also in glass, are a nod to the contemporary feel of the gathering space.

For the dining tables, clusters of moss, succulents and spring flowers in birch logs accented a large glass vase of flowering cherry branches with teardrop crystal votives.

We really loved working with Sophie and Mike – and the people at the Ritz were really great – they gave us a nice big corner where we could bring the outside in and work late into the night making everything perfect.
