Fanciful Garden Wedding – Real Wedding

Raspberry and creamy blush blooms artfully arranged by Stoneblossom enhanced the beauty of this fanciful garden in Little Compton.

Maggie had dreamed of getting married in her grandparents’ garden ever since she was a little girl; so naturally when she met the man of her dreams, Jesse, she already knew where the magical day would take place! The entire bridal party embodied the fanciful garden vibe with their floral gowns in varying styles, complementing the floral design flawlessly. “We wanted to keep the color palette elegant and neutral, white flowers with tiny pops of blush and raspberry — Stoneblossom did an absolutely fantastic job!” Maggie raved. The carriage house where the ceremony was held was draped with greenery and white flora as if it had been growing there for years, creating an ethereal vibe. Over in the tent that overlooked the sandy cliffs leading to the ocean, hundreds of white paper lanterns from Ryan Designs lined the ceiling like tiny clouds drifting in the sky. Cocktail hour kicked off with mini Patron Tequila cocktails paired with succulent seafood bites and tiny tacos, followed by a grand dinner complete with a dessert bar and decadent cakes. Every guest left with small jars of custom-made honey and many happy memories.

Sunset Vows – Real Wedding

The awe-inspiring sunset views from the back lawn of Blithewold Mansion painted an idyllic picture for Hilary and Bill to be married.

Just one week after getting engaged Hilary and her mother made their first and last stop on the list of venues to see – Blithewold Mansion was everything she wanted and more. From the moment she contracted Alexis of Unique Weddings by Alexis everything fell into place. “I would not have had the most perfect wedding without Alexis and Kim from Greenlion Design was truly amazing too!” Hilary exclaimed.

A bountiful floral arrangement in a weathered cement vase greeted guests on the trellis just outside the mansion.

A canopy of twinkling lights casted a warm glow over the long farm tables that were adorned with crystal vases of deep green leafy branches. 

Loose blooms and greens peppered the table adding a garden vibe to the gold-rimmed translucent place settings.

An oval bouquet of white blossoms and lush greens was a unique twist on the norm.

A luxe lounge gives guests a spot to rest between dances.

A sweet ending to an amazing day…

UNIQUE Weddings by Alexis – Vendor Spotlight

Alexis Eliopoulos-O’Mara, Master Bridal Consultant and owner of UNIQUE Weddings by Alexis is one of only 90 people in the world to carry this title through the Associations of Bridal Consultants. Alexis has an impressive 18 years in the event planning industry and specializes in destination weddings and working with couples that are out of the area that have chosen New England as their destination.

How did UNIQUE Weddings by Alexis come to be?

I started out in marketing and graphic design and then got into corporate event planning. After years of planning large scale destination annual corporate events, I longed for more creativity and longer term planning. That is when I started pursuing weddings. I fell in love with weddings at once and have been working on weddings alone ever since!

What are the services you offer?

I customize every package for each couple I work with. I will assist with as little as month of management or start to finish planning and design — and then of course anything in between! Some examples of services include full service management, wedding day coordination, guidance on etiquette, venue recommendations, wedding design, vendor referrals and much more.

How far you willing to travel to provide decor and services? 

Absolutely anywhere! We travel throughout New England on a regular basis, but we have worked on wedding and events throughout the States and on several tropical islands.

What is trending so for in 2018 for event decor? 

Back bars with candles, family photographs, and bud vases are great accents to the cocktail hour or reception decor and desired by many couples.

Signage is hugely popular! Custom-designed paper materials for weddings has become much more frequent.

Mini ceremonial cakes instead of large traditional wedding cakes to direct the focus more on dessert stations, passed desserts, and late night snacks is also trending.

Couples are hosting large rehearsal dinners or welcome parties for many (or all) guests the night before the wedding.

Lounge furniture, signature drinks, natural wood guest tables and mixed table shapes are all still very much desired.

What is one piece of advice you can give to brides?

Enjoy your engagement and do not worry about the details on your wedding day! If you are having fun at your wedding, your guests will take your lead and have a wonderful time as well!! Couples are often so busy between planning their wedding, working, and other personal changes, they forget that being engaged should be a fun time in their lives. Have a great time planning your wedding and dancing the night away in celebration when the day finally comes!
