Blush, Navy, and White – Color Theory

Blush, navy, and white… a classic color palette embodying the nature surrounding the New England Aquarium was perfect for this summer soiree.

From engagement the couple knew they wanted a unique venue in the heart of Boston that would allow for an outdoor ceremony. The New England Aquarium had everything they wanted and inspired the color palette as well as the rest of the design. The ceremony was held under an elegant birch arbor draped with linen and adorned with summer blooms overlooking Boston Harbor. Dinner was served in a beautiful white tent that was softened by twinkling lights and terrariums in fish bowls creating a whimsical setting. “Whim Event’s package included a trip to the flower market – my mom and I toured with Moira to choose the flowers that we liked and 6 weeks later we got to see those same flowers in the bouquets! It made the wedding that much more memorable,” the bride reminisced.

Vendor Spotlight: Farrissey Floral Design

Rachael Sirois, floral designer and owner of Farrissey Floral Design has been surrounded by flowers for most of her life! From her grandmother’s garden to mother & grandmother’s catering company, Rachael has extensive experience in creating beautiful arrangements that rival works of art.

1. How did Farrissey Floral Design come to be? 

My (now) husband and I were moving back to Massachusetts after living in New York. I worked for a clothing company in the city and wanted a job that gave me a similar balance between the creative and business aspects. The current “flower revolution” had just started, showcasing  the more natural, organic look, using seasonal flowers —I was inspired! I had always loved flowers, as I had grown up helping my grandmother arrange them, so I decided to go for it and start my business! The name Farrissey is from my mom and grandparents’ catering company (my mother’s maiden name).

2. What is currently trending in wedding floral design? 

One thing I am seeing more of recently that I have always loved is smaller bouquets. I love a bouquet that the bride can hold with one hand, and that allows the guests to focus their attention on her, not so much the flowers. The flowers are important of course, but they should showcase the bride, not distract from her.  We saw Meghan Markle’s petite bouquet of astilbe, sweet peas, and forget me knots just this week – what’s prettier than that?!

3. Where do you source your flowers from? 

I have a few terrific vendors that I use that range from Boston to local farms. It’s important to me to use locally sourced flowers whenever possible, but Holland, South America, and Japan grow undeniably beautiful flowers as well and those definitely work their way into my designs.

4. Which flowers are in season for Spring/Summer? 

Some of my absolute favorites are available through Spring and early Summer! Sweet peas are probably at the top of my list (which is a very long list). They smell great and are the perfect addition to bouquets, adding a soft bit of movement with the most delicate stem, easily worked in. Lilac, peonies, ranunculus, lily of the valley, and anemones are up there as well and are all great Spring/ Summer flowers that I incorporate into my designs whenever possible.

Rose Pink & Rosemary Green – A Color Story

Striving for a feeling of warmth that emulated the almost autumn date of their nuptials, Teresa and Kevin chose a soft, neutral palette of rosé pink & rosemary green that would pop against the vivid terrain of Newport Vineyards.

A sea of pink floral chiffon and a ravishing bride painted the vineyard in pastel perfection. Vintage wine barrels topped with an abundance of greenery peppered with creamy-white and rosy-pink buds were scattered throughout the vineyard, setting the tone for the ceremony and cocktail hour that followed. Inside the newly renovated event space at Newport Vineyards, exposed beams, shiplap walls, and vast windows offering unobstructed vineyard views created an authentic, and inviting vibe for dinner. One of Teresa’s favorite details, second to her bouquet that was bursting with late summer blooms, was the simply elegant garland of greens that adorned the sweetheart table where she and Kevin had their first meal as a married couple.
