With the help of Everyday Details, this couple decided to shut down Meadow Pond Rd in Hampton, NH and make their September wedding reception one their guests would not forget! With a pizza food truck from Posto, and two of our weighted Traditional Frame tents, this cocktail style reception was anything but traditional. Our rustic wine barrel bar was used as a unique display table while our white garden chairs added that classic touch that allowed the other décor to truly shine!
Planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things you can do in life, which makes wedding planners – who take on all that anxiety with gusto – the embodiment of the calm before the wedding storm. When Chrissy Teigen and John Legend hired wedding planner Lisa Vorce to coordinate what would become one of the most high-profile wedding celebrations of 2013, the seasoned pro found herself dealing with the dream dilemma: The celeb couple was so easygoing that they looked to Vorce to help them build everything from the ground up.
“To design their wedding, I first got to know and understand them (amazing!), then I took a look at the venue (Lake Como – also amazing!),” Vorce says. “From there, I created a ‘mood board’ that was a reflection of the colors, architecture, and topography of Lake Como, along with the vibe of John and Chrissy. John and Chrissy then chose what most resonated with them, and the rest is history.” Continue reading →

Wedding Planner’s Questions
What kind of wedding would you like to have? A. The answer I often get is “I want a unique, different, creative wedding” — which is not the answer I am looking for. Every bride wants something unique; I want to see how far outside the box the couple wants to go. The style and personality they want to come through are important, but I need to understand how far they’re willing to venture — and how much they’re willing to break with the formula of a traditional wedding.
What’s your color scheme? A. Surprise: A lot of my brides don’t have a ready answer. Think about specific colors, preferably bringing in fabric swatches, paint chip colors, magazine tear sheets — anything that depicts what you’re envisioning. Ideally, I like to see three color choices per palette: a primary color (your main color), a secondary color (your accent color) and a third color (what I call the finish color: silver, crystal, copper or gold).
How would you like to infuse your personalities into your celebration? A. I hope the couple answers by telling me more about who they are — the types of foods they love, their cultural backgrounds, stories about their relationship, where they met, etc. The reason I ask this is because I want to tell the couple’s story. The more personality and detail in your wedding, the more your wedding becomes your wedding, instead of the cookie-cutter format so many people tend to follow.
What style do you live your life in? A. Are you Modern? Classic? Eclectic? Traditional? Retro? I ask this question because the answer gives me a sense of who you are as a couple, as well as the way you like to live.
What style would you like your wedding to be executed in? A. The style a couple wants for their weddingmay not be the style they live their lives by. It’s often more of a fantasy they want to live out for that day.
Every year brides, grooms and their wedding vendors come up with exciting new ways to decorate and execute weddings. We’ve seen the signature drink evolve into a themed bar, wedding cakes turn into cupcake towers and even wedding dresses turn from pure white into shades of pink. WeddingWire reached out to some of the country’s most creative wedding vendors to find out what they have planned for 2017 weddings. Continue reading →
