Dusty Rose & Powder Blue

A breathtaking combination of dusty pastel hues and enchanting lighting transforms a clear tent into dreamy oasis. 

Having been in the wedding industry for years, Kelly Fallon of Ormonde Productions had a clear vision of what she wanted her own wedding to be like. A clear tent from Chase Canopy sat upon the lush, tree –line field of her parent’s property setting the tone for the outside soiree. Soft pastel pink and blue linens complemented the airy gray chiffon draping that was intertwined with sparkling chandeliers creating a whimsical vibe. Textural blooms in muted tones with pops of lavender in high and low crystal vases added dimension and elegance to the vibe. “The white dance floor and the lighting played a huge role in transitioning the tent from day to night. When the sun went down the entire vibe went from airy and whimsical to bold and dramatic. It was magical,” Kelly reminisced.

1. How did Ormonde Productions come to be? 

Ormonde Productions has been around since the mid 1980s. What started off as a
DJ/entertainment company and slowly morphed itself into what we are today mostly in part
due to the demand for more. As the wedding industry grew, so did the expectations of
our clients. They weren’t just looking for a fun party with good music, food, and flowers,
they wanted to create a gorgeous environment and for the past 20 or so years that’s
what we’ve done!

2. Do you offer services beyond lighting? 

While lighting is our specialty we try to position ourselves as a full service, lighting,
design, and production company. Much more goes into an event aside from lighting,
however without great lighting, all of the other design elements can get lost. The
majority of the additional services we provide allow us to fully transform the spaces
we’re working in to fit our client’s vision. Draping, dance floors, stages, furniture, bars, video, and a huge variety of different hanging décor and design elements. We also
provide a lot of behind the scenes services necessary for the success of an event
such as sound, generators, and power distribution.

3. What is trending in lighting for weddings and events? 

Right now as a whole with weddings and events we’re seeing more and more of our
clients choosing unique, nontraditional venues. Industrial spaces, museums, libraries,
and art galleries. With that, we’re seeing a huge increase in clients coming to us looking to enhance and bring out the uniqueness of these spaces.

4. What is one piece of advice you give to brides? 

Wedding planning can be stressful and overwhelming. Hire the right people and be
upfront with them when it comes to your vision and budget. Assembling a
strong, experienced team of vendors will make the whole process so much more
seamless, especially if they have experience working together.

Also, when it comes to your vendors take the time to setup a consultation with them.
We are always encouraging our clients to come into our showroom to meet with
us in person. It is the best way for us to get to know our clients and for our clients to
develop a better sense of who we are, what we can do, and what can be done within
their environment.

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

The majority of our events are in the Rhode Island, Massachusetts area but we love to
travel and usually do so a handful of times each year. We’ve formed relationships with
planners outside of our local network that over the years have brought us on to events
up and down the east coast.

Vibrant Coral, Pink, and Cerulean

Mt. Hope Farm evokes an English countryside vibe that was ideal for this styled shoot rich with vibrant flora and fashion.

“We wanted to showcase spring flowers in soft, but colorful shades of the rainbow and to show brides that colors doesn’t translate to ‘loud’ when styled right,” Yumiko of Hana Floral Design described. Collaborating with Exquisite Events, the opening to the barn was draped with white chiffon tied aside to reveal a sparkling chandelier above a whitewashed farm table surrounded by caned back chairs and a cozy linen loveseat. A pale blue linen runner lined the table for the vintage urns loosely filled with lush, textural flowers in vibrant coral, pink, and cerulean hues. Vintage china place settings and silver trays helped to define the English countryside look the team was going for. Beth Chapman of Beth Chapman Styling styled the bridesmaid in a rich, teal gown and the bride in a modern ball gown, complementing the bouquet of peonies, ranunculus, orange frittilaria & pale blue delphinium flawlessly.
