Fourth of July Weekend with Cornelia and Patrick!

Jamestown, Newport's sister island, is a treasure. This oceanfront family homestead was complete with great dogs - including a golden retriever puppy - perennial gardens, sweeping views and a winding, lantern-lit pathway to a private beach. It was a joy designing the flowers and event decor for Nell and Patrick. The Bride's mom did a great job tying together lots of the many details!

We loved Nell's Vera Wang gown - so Jackie O! They were married in Ochre Court at Salve Regina University where her parents tied the knot 26 years previously.

Summer color!!! Our centerpieces staying cool in the refrigerated van:

We detailed the placecards with tiny starfish fastened with twine.

Love these highball cups!

Stoneblossom's Wicker Lounge sets were just the ticket for the relaxed setting. We custom selected the pillows to match the robin's egg blue palette.

Tasty tied morsels from Blackstone Caterers:

Naomi's bouquets are always perfection. She combined soft apricot roses, sweet peas and hypericum berries with fragrant tuberose, spray roses and mini green hydrangea - gorgeous against the pale blue silk.

Stoneblossom's tablescapes featured duos and trios of mossy pots overflowing with loads of great ingredients like figs, club moss and succulents for texture. Strong color - apple green and shades of orange - provided great pop on the starched Irish linen from Rentals Unlimited.

Yet another "cake as art" creation from award-winning James Kennedy and the gang at Confections! Yes, those are all sugar. Check out the twigs and hypericum berries...

Ormonde Productions did an amazing job lighting the tent with onion-shaped lamps that changed color as the dancing heated up.

Many thanks to our friends at Snap! Photography for all the great images!!!

This is a featured wedding in the 2009 Southern New England Brides.
