Artfully-Inspired Nuptials – Real Wedding

The colors of Tuscany and the bride’s love for art built a foundation for this intimate wedding at the museum.

Growing up surrounded by the influence of art, it was important to Hannah to share this upbringing with Theo on their wedding day. The color palette was inspired by the beautiful landscape of Tuscany Theo and Hannah had fallen in love with on a recent visit. With these notions they called on the talents of Mindy Home of AE Events to blend their visions into an intimate soiree.

A blend of floral arrangements & freshly potted herbs dotted along the farm table evoked Tuscany flair.

Famous works of art create the perfect backdrop for one of their first photos as husband & wife.

Terracotta walls lined with brilliant works of art combined with marble accents, and an old-world inspired chandelier transported guests back in time for the ceremony.

Rows of twinkling lights hovered above long farm tables in the all-glass courtyard making guests feel as though they were dining outside under the stars.

Ombre bridesmaid gowns varying in textures add a touch of modernity to the look.

The magical night commenced with dancing and sweet treats.

Winter Warmth & Elegance – A Styled Shoot

The talented designers at Jubilee Events teamed up with Beth Chapman of The White Dress by the Shore and Flowers by Justine to style a shoot showcasing the beauty & coziness of a winter wedding. 

Senior Event Designer, Diana Chouinard of Jubilee Events talks about her vision in detail below!

1. What was the inspiration for the shoot and how you felt this style spoke to your design aesthetic?

Because many weddings and events happen in the prime of Spring, Summer, and Fall, we wanted to give a little love to the winter season. Through our use of moody tones and texture we highlighted the beauty of an indoor space. We brought in natural texture through an abundance of greenery that we dressed down the center of the table and around various details of the day – signage, cake, and the ceremony tree. Because of the chilly time of year, we wanted to add a bit of warmth, not just through gold accents, but by a full candle runner down the center of the table. It’s always a fun challenge to see how you can take a trend and build it to add personality or a signature touch – much like we did with the decorative runner!

2. If this shoot were a real-life event, what would you envision it to be about? 

The tree decor where the ceremony would take place was one of my favorite elements of this shoot. I love that couples are bringing their story and flair into tradition and making the wedding day their own. By creating this shoot, we remind our couples that they can invoke their interests and history into any part of their day! Our table evoked a sense of coziness… an intimate experience to be shared with the ones you love. The guest experience is one of the parts of a wedding or event that is nearest and dearest to our hearts.

3. Tell us about all of the lovely and amazing details you included in this shoot.

The color palette, aesthetic, rental selections, and layout of our table started in my mind, but our incredible vendor team made it a beautiful reality! That tree decor and the greenery down the table was absolute magic thanks to our florist, Flowers by Justine. The textures throughout the space and table were highlighted by Beth Chapman’s incredible selection of gowns from The White Dress by the Shore.

Magic in the Moonlight – Real Wedding

The Boston Harbor Hotel, with its vast windows looking out onto the harbor was the perfect spot to host this full moon wedding.

Creating a magically elegant black tie affair depended on two things for Corey; a full moon and a sleek color palette of black & white with metallic accents. “The floor-to-ceiling windows at the Boston Harbor Hotel were perfect because we were able to see the beautiful reflection of the moon in the water. When the doors to the reception opened it was truly magical,” Corey reminisced.

An all-white table filled with blooms glistened with gold-rimmed place settings and warm candlelight.

The iconic grand arch overlooking the harbor created a romantic backdrop for photos.

Creamy white floral sculptures topped tall crystal vessels adding dimension to the design.

A three-tier cake dazzled guests with a silver damask print and a sugar flower topper.

1. How did Leila Ryan Events come to be?

Sarah Heaney and Katie McLaughlin have been in the event industry for 15 years, having a strong background in event operations and planning, people often refer to us as the “Dynamic Duo”.  We chose to leave Corporate America with the dream of creating a business that focused on personal relationships built with our clients and our passion and love for events. For us, it’s a lot more than just creating someone’s dream wedding. It’s more than just a job and a business partnership. For us, it’s about creating something unique for each of our clients, something that really reflects the couple we are designing for. We genuinely enjoy getting to know the people we work with and we certainty want people to get to know US! We’re fun ladies who are truly passionate about planning, design and about having FUN along the way and about making each experience with our clients an enjoyable one!

3. Which weddings trends do you think will continue to be big in 2019? Any trends that are fading out? 

The special moment of having a first look with Dad has become quite popular and we see continuing for years to come along with long stunning head tables and mixed styles and color tones for bridesmaid dresses. A couple trends that we see fading are traditional wedding cakes that are turning into fun dessert tables and donut walls and also the tradition of not seeing each other before the ceremony has turned into sneaking a first look and joining in on cocktail hour!

4. How far are you willing to travel to provide your services? 

Leila Ryan Events is a Newport, RI based wedding planning firm but we travel all over New England and beyond!

5. Any advice for our brides? 

When selecting your wedding vendor dream team, make sure you make a great personal connection with each vendor. We ultimately spend a lot of time together so building and wonderful team that you are comfortable and confident with is extremely important in the planning process. We always say “One team, one goal!”
