07.28.11 ~ Purple Passion

Purple remains one of the top colors for weddings and events this year. Shades from lavender to plum can be found everywhere from florals to fabrics. We have really noticed the trend in lighting going toward purple. The deep purple uplighting gives a room true drama and style! Check out some of these pieces to add a pop to your next soiree!

07.21.11 ~ Wychmere Cape Cod

We had the pleasure of touring the newly remodeled Wychmere Cape Cod a few weeks ago, and boy are we in love! Longwood Events has made a brilliant transformation of the waterfront property, perfect for the most exclusive weddings and parties on the Cape! Fabulous flooring, contemporary yet still very fitting fixtures, and marvelous upgrades have been made. From a second floor wrap around deck, to a bar area complete with a photo of the Kennedys, we were oh-ing and ah-ing at every little detail. Nothing was overlooked in the revitalization. The fab girls of Longwood showed us a number of different areas right at Wychmere where you can hold your next event, from poolside soirees, to beachfront bonfires, to lush lawn landscape, and the fantastic new spaces inside! A variety of onsite accommodations are now available for bridal parties, too, so no more stress over finding the perfect hotel. We can’t wait to see what fab events are taking place this summer, and look forward to our next trip to the Cape! Here are just a few photos provided by Longwood, by Mike Diskin.
