This summer we had the pleasure and honor of working on a fun, offbeat, multicultural wedding at the New England Aquarium in Boston. And while there is so much to share about this very cool wedding, I will share some of my favorite things about it and try to let the pictures tell you the rest of the story!
The Groom was of Egyptian descent, and the Bride- American from Louisiana. They wanted an offbeat party to celebrate their union which was going to happen in a private affair. This was to include their family and friends into their new life, so it was a big wedding reception party to celebrate their union!
They wanted it to be laid back, whimsical, colorful,but elegant and classy. They wanted it to reflect their easy going personalities, without it looking too informal or too plain. The location for this fun soiree was the beautiful New England Aquarium with the Boston harbor as their backdrop! A very good choice!
What we gave them?
A colorful, offbeat, laid back celebration with details that represented both their fun, unique personalities and cultures.
The flowers we used were inclined towards being fillers as well as unusual looking - some evoking sea creatures to continue to play with the Aquarium theme they had started out with, as well as to cater to the Bride who was not keen on a typical floral look.
Other fun details:
Kickass cupcakes were willing to work with us on the design of the tower so that it fit in perfectly with the entire design! Those cupcakes really are Kickass by the way, so go try one when you are in the area! Totally worth the trip! And yes- they were a hit!
We were honored to have been able to witness it, and to participate in the beautiful day that it was! We are grateful to the staff at the New England Aquarium and Be our Guest for their flexibility and all their help to pull it off. It was such a great day and a really awesome reception party! Congratulations to Stephanie and Youssef! Thanks so much for the honor!
