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

Private Wedding Event. Vinegar Hill Music Theater And Sperry Tents of The Seacoast

This 46×65 Sperry Tent was set at Vinegar Hill Music Theater 53 Old Post Road, Arundel Maine.

The post-and-beam barn, built in 1887, preserves the original structure’s authentic charm, while recent updates complement the barn’s history yet offer modern amenities. Grand wrought-iron chandeliers and velvet draperies create a warm elegance throughout. With more than 2,000 square feet of entertaining space, the barn can host weddings up to 200 comfortably, yet the intimate charm works well for smaller events, as well.

Two pairs of barn doors open onto a grass patio area with social-style seating, globe lighting, and plush gardens. With a rustic hand-built bar, this area is perfect for cocktail receptions or outdoor ceremonies.

The barn and outdoor garden space provide a simple yet elegant canvas to create the weddings of your dreams, offering flexible space and incredible design and charm.

 

6 Unexpected Honeymoon Ideas For Millennials

Hello Giggles

8/24/2017

A ton has been written about how millennials have changed the wedding industry — from skipping traditions that don’t align with their values to opting for smaller but still Instagrammable receptions — but they have also revolutionized the honeymoon industry.

Part of this change may be a result of twenty and thirty-something couples forgoing traditional registries and using apps like Honeyfund to raise money to travel (rather than being saddled with a set of fine china that they’ll never use).

There’s also the fact that millennials are more well-traveled than any other generation, particularly since cheap airfare and sites like Airbnb and Couchsurfing have made it easier to travel the world. So when they get married, the typical honeymoon trope of spending a week at a “romantic” all-inclusive resort just won’t do for many millennials. Instead, they are opting for offbeat and unexpected honeymoon ideas, like the ones below. Continue reading

September 2017 Breakwater Inn & Spa Wedding, Kennebunkport ME

On July 15, 2017 my (now) husband Dan and I got married, with a tented reception at the Breakwater Inn & Spa in Kennebunkport. It was an incredibly beautiful evening, exceeding all of our hopes. The two incredible tents were a breathtaking setting for it all. From the lighting, to the tables, chairs, linens, flatware, glassware and everything in between, our guests commented all night and into the weeks to come about the elegance. We are so thankful for the hard work you all put into our event – from set-up and breakdown to your guidance and advice in the planning, we couldn’t have had a better recommendation than the one to use Sperry and Exeter. We will surley recommend you all, too!

Thank you
