September Promise – Real Wedding

An intimate seaside wedding filled with personal details unique to Elyse and Jacob as a couple…

The natural beauty and simplicity inherent to Cape Cod inspired Elyse and Jacob to host a wedding that showcased their love through delicate flowers, vintage accents, and personal mementos. “Elegant Engagements was amazing at making the experience as stress free as possible and the amazing flowers and unique, vintage accents from Lilacs really helped set the stage,” Elyse raved.

Flickering candles sprinkled along the tables warmed the clean white table setting.

Under a beautiful arch of greenery they said “I do.”

Vintage fish decoys served as escort cards & favors.

A striking bouquet of all-white blossoms was the epitome of clean elegance.

Donning their floral crowns & sky blue sashes, the junior bridal party prepped the aisle for their bride.

September Promise, a candle from the bride’s new candle line with a label custom-designed by the groom was given to each guest as a favor.

Late Summer Wedding – Real Wedding

The Bohlin, from the breathtaking views to the iconic location in Newport, RI, was the ideal venue for Caryn and Brendon to host their wedding.

For Caryn and Brendon having a quintessential New England wedding did not mean nautical themed décor; it meant an outdoor reception complete with a raw bar and vast ocean views that were dotted with sailboats and the occasional ferry drifting by. A soft palette of dusty greens, blush, and gold combined with personal touches helped to achieve the romantic elegance they had envisioned.

 A bouquet of soft white blooms designed by Sayles Livingston Design evoked effortless beauty.

Ready to set sail on the adventure of a lifetime together!

Twinkling lights, gold accents, and fresh flora in dusty hues romanced the tent.

A dear family friend custom designed all the paper, including the menu cards adding a personal touch to the day.

An abundance of greens peppered with blush blossoms loosely perched upon shallow gold vases created the easy elegance Caryn dreamed of.

The day was filled with endless laughter and love.

Gourmet Galley – Vendor Spotlight

Located just over the Rhode Island border in North Stonington, CT, Gourmet Galley is a certified green caterer specializing in weddings, corporate events, and non-profits. They have over 20 years in the business and have just recently become the Caterer of Choice for the Newport Preservation Society!

1. How did Gourmet Galley come to be? 

I got married in 1996 and hired Gourmet Galley to cater my wedding!  2 years later, the owner was catering my friends wedding that I was attending and approached me and asked if I wanted to buy her business!  She said to me, “I remember you as a bride, you were very into the food and the planning etc. and I’ve heard through the grape vine you are starting to cater on your own a bit…” True story.  That’s exactly how it happened.  As they say, the rest is history.

2. Are there any other services you provide besides catering?

We run a seasonal lunch cafe at the Florence Griswold Museum, called Cafe Flo.  It’s a full service, outdoor cafe with 40 seats.

3. Are you the exclusive caterer for any venues?

We are the exclusive caterer at: The Guilford Yacht Club, Guilford, The Meadows, Stonington, Priam Vineyards, Colchester.

4. What wedding food trends have you seen most in weddings this year?

Everyone is asking for locally sourced, sustainable menu items as well as vegan dishes.  We’ve had a lot of fun creating tasty vegan dishes for our clients. Brown liquor drinks featured at the bar are huge this year too.

5. Do you have any signature dishes or does the menu change seasonally? 

Our menus definitely change seasonally, but we really like to create dishes for our clients based on their likes too.  We have one station that we have fun with called a Star Bar.  Star Bars feature one ingredient in 5-6 different dishes.  So, corn for instance.  The station might have: crispy corn cakes with avocado salsa, creamy corn and poblano soup sippers, bacon and maple popcorn, corn muffins with smoke pork shoulder. etc. We’ve done them with tomatoes, avocados, and clams!  Its fun and the guests love it.
