Real Wedding | Emily Herzig Floral Studio

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

New Hampshire floral designer, Emily Herzig Floral Studio, surely masters rustic elegance and we just love this farm wedding up at Squam Lake, NH.

from Emily:  Emily and Dustin’s wedding was the perfect balance of rustic style with formal elegance.  Emily’s family has summered in the Squam Lake area for years so it was the first place Emily thought of to have their wedding.  The ceremony was held at Church Island on Squam Lake and the reception followed at the beautiful Burleigh Farm.  Planning the details were all Emily’s doing, from tent and table rentals, linens, lighting, and all the accessories (personalized match books, signature drinks, and more). The floral arrangements complimented the couples laid back attitude and the rustic setting, incorporating mason jars, birch bark, and burlap with summers best — garden roses, clematis vine, sweet peas, and more!

Alyson’s Orchard Shoot | designed by Perennial Studio

Monday, January 24th, 2011

New Hampshire falls are amazing — do we need to say anymore  after looking at these photos?  We had a crystal clear day in October for yet another fabulous shoot with a very talented team of local wedding vendors.  And our host for the day was none-other than the team at Alyson’s Orchard in Walpole, NH with it’s amazing country backdrop.

The shoot involved 4 design teams each with a bride.  The mission was to design a table to fit the Alyson’s Orchard setting within a particular wedding budget.  While we want the designs to be inspirational, we also like them to be practical to obtain!  So let’s meet our first team who designed for an overall wedding budget of $50,000:

floral and event design Perennial Studio
paper products Anastasia Designs
rentals Be Our Guest
hair and makeup MJD & Company (Megan Basset, makeup | Rebecca Cormier, hair)
dresses Madeleine’s Daughter
jewelry and outerwear Puttin’ on the Glitz

And of course, our STUNNING bride Lisa!  Each of our brides dressed for two looks; one with a more formal look and one with a casual twist playing with some really great accessories from Madeleine’s Daughter and Puttin’ on the Glitz.  Accessories can certainly enhance your wedding style, and when we saw this rust-colored hat with jewel embellishments, it was a must have to fit in with the fall background.  So playing with your jewelry or smaller accessories throughout your day can add just enough change-up rather than a whole new dress!

Stay tuned when we share with you a closer look into the table design and the inspiration behind the design concept by Jennifer of Perennial Studio.
