Molly and John's Dazzling Summer Wedding

Posted by Peppers Team on Wed, Jan 24, 2018

MOLLY AND JOHN'S DAZZLING SUMMER WEDDING

home wedding tent massachusetts

   Molly & John were married at a beautiful church in Wayland, MA with their reception immediately following at Molly’s parents’ private residence. Guests arrived by shuttle and were welcomed by servers passing a variety of signature cocktails before making their way to the cocktail hour. The cocktail hour tent featured a full bar, a fresh iced tea and lavender lemonade station, a chef active raw bar, and a variety of passed hors d'oeuvres. Guests were able to take full advantage of the property- sitting on the deck, taking pictures by a tree with hanging picture frames, swinging on an old wooden tree swing out front and taking in the beautiful surrounding.

   When it was time for the dinner reception, guests received a small Moscow Mule mug which doubled as their place card and favor. The mini mugs were displayed on two free-standing, dark-stained wooden “pegboards” with gold hooks, creating a unique and impactful display.

         The dinner reception was held in a large clear tent, allowing guests to take in all of the beautiful scenery surrounding the home. The table linens and chairs were all white, making the blush and rose gold centerpieces really “pop”. The centerpieces were a mix of three styles, a grouping of three rose gold vases with matching votive candles, a geometric terrarium filled with florals and accented with candles, and vessels of floating flowers with candles. The mix of arrangements created great texture and height on the guest tables.  

    The Bride, Groom and all of their guests spent the evening dancing to a live band, enjoying a decadent dessert, and having a ball! The evening ended with the newlyweds running through an arch of sparklers leading them to their private town car. It was such a magical and perfect wedding for a truly lovely couple!

Katy and Rob's Summer Wedding at Tyrone Farm

Posted by Peppers Team on Tue, Jan 09, 2018

Katy and Rob's Wedding at Tyrone Farm

Katy and Rob were so much fun to work with. They were so easy and laid back but knew what they wanted. Their wedding vision was the rustic look of a farm with a touch of bling and blush. This was accomplished by incorporating with the natural beauty of the chestnut barn at Tyrone Farm sparkle and blush linens, a gold drip cake, and beautiful pops of color in the florals from It's So Ranunculus. We especially loved the placecard holder they made themselves with wood and chicken wire. It fit perfecly with the overall look of their day! Here is a sneak peek of their beautiful summer wedding.

Marisa and Garrison's Elegant Garden Wedding at Tower Hill

Posted by Peppers Team on Wed, Dec 27, 2017

Marisa and Garrison's Elegant Garden Wedding at Tower Hill Tower Hill Botanic Garden Wedding

Tower Hill Botanic Garden was the perfect venue for Marisa and Garrison's elegant garden style wedding. The natural beauty of Tower Hill provided the ideal complement to their wedding theme.

Wooden handmade signs, rustic lanterns, and ivory and green colored florals welcomed guests to the ceremony in the Lawm Garden, setting the stage for the celebration. Following the ceremony guests enjoyed a walk through the gardens basking in the beauty of Tower Hill, as they made their way to the Winter Garden. Once in the Winter Garden guests were greeted with cocktails and a chef active gnocchi station.

Dinner and dancing took place in the Orangerie, a beautiful 18th-century glass conservatory. The Orangerie looked stunning with rustic farm tables, a soft neutral color palette and lots of candlelight intertwined throughout the table designs. Each place setting was adorned with a rosemary sprig and a mini infused oil bottle. It was a perfect blend of rustic and elegance.

We were honored to be a part of the celebration and had so much fun bringing their wedding vision to life!

Michelle and John's wedding style was bold and elegant with a black, silver and dark purple color pallette. We used a beautiful black and silver herringbone table linen and a black water glass for that extra pop!
