Color Theory: Sky Blue, Sea Green, and Cream

Understated and classic, the color scheme for Alden and Harris’ wedding on the Newport Harbor proves that subtle colors can still make a huge impact. Drawing inspiration from the bride’s love of the ocean, she worked closely to incorporate different shades of blues like cornflower and light sky blues that only served to highlight the natural beauty of her venue, the couple wanted nothing to compete with it! Slight touches of color were added in the details, a few flowers tucked into the centerpieces and subtle table runners helped tie everything together. Plus you can’t forget the ocean backdrop!

A real takeaway from this gorgeous event—you’ll never regret using classic and understated colors, it makes the occasion timeless. You won’t look back and worry about featuring a color that was trendy at the time, but lacked staying power.

Glam Bake in Cape Cod

We couldn’t be more excited for this 4th of July weekend! What better way to celebrate America’s birthday than with a Glam Bake on the seaside of Cape Cod?! This styled shoot is an elegant twist on the traditional backyard clam bake, focusing on the more glamorous side of life on the island.

The dazzling deck overlooking the salt marsh and beaches of Sandy Neck made for the perfect setting for this end of summer soiree we like to call: Glam Bake. We called in the professionals over at Compton Clambakes and Catering to serve a plated bake made a bit classier with custom linen napkins and china plates from Be Our Guest. The tables were decorated with vivid florals and glass votives in varying heights thanks to the talented Karen Taddei of Lilacs. The theme was carried out through the dessert course with seaside treats like starfish cupcakes, s’mores pops, and strawberry shortcake parfaits from Artisan Bake Shop.   

A Glam Bake wouldn’t be complete without a custom lounge area. Ours featured a lavish cabana with chandeliers and elegantly draped embroidered organza created by Ryan Designs, and a craft beer bar! The craft beers were hand-selected from the regions finest breweries by Luke’s Super Liquors.

5 Tips to Rock Your Reception!

Kevin Trimmer

Our friend Luke of Luke Renchen Entertainment has some serious experience when it comes to creating a fun wedding reception atmosphere—after all he’s been DJ-ing since high school. So whether you’re looking for a fist-bumping good time or the perfect instrumental cocktail hour, we’ve got some insight into getting exactly what you’re looking for. Here are some things to keep in mind (and make sure you communicate to your entertainment) as a couple before your big day:

1. DJ or live band? Ah the essential question. Couples with a large entertainment budget can afford both, but if you have to choose, here are a few things to consider. A DJ can play anything you want and it will sound exactly the way you want it to. A band may interpret some of your favorite songs differently, so make sure you’ve heard them play beforehand. Also, a band will need to take a break, so you’ll need to figure out interim music to play while they do that. Bands will give your reception more of a live music feel and if you’re into going to concerts, that might be a perfect fit for you.

2. Experience is a must. The longer a DJ or band or even an entertainment company has been in business, the more experience they’ll have and they’ll know how to handle any unexpected or unplanned situations on the big day.

3. Song choice is so important. Sure you might love that Sia song, but can people dance to it? Think about the kind of vibe you want. If you want people to dance you’re going to need to keep the music upbeat. Think about incorporating those slower songs during cocktail hour or when people are eating.

4. Make sure you know who exactly will be your DJ. You might hit it off just great with the owner of an entertainment company but he might not be the person who will actually be working at your reception. Make sure your personality fits with the DJ who will be there on the big day.

5. It’s your day! You can be as specific or laid back as you want about the music selection. You can help create a custom playlist with your DJ or you can just let him or her know roughly what genre you want at different times of the evening. It does always help to give specific songs as examples just to make sure you’re on the same page. Every aspect of the evening is up to you, so whether you want no introduction or detailed bios on your wedding party, anything goes!
