We had the pleasure of meeting Renee and James a short month or so out from their big day.
I remember meeting them at their reception venue on the most sunny day by the water and their faces just beaming with excitement and enthusiasm. That was the moment I knew we were going to make a great team.
Sitting in the light-filled hamptons-style Pier 70 Restaurant we knew simple styling, relaxed vibes and stunning blooms would be all that was needed to compliment their ceremony and reception styling.
Their Ceremony took place on nearby Raymond Island where they both have fond memories at the family holiday home there.
Walking along the tree-lined boardwalk, you find an open yet secluded little slice of uninterrupted beach views. Adding in a touch of floral for their alter, this picturesque spot made the perfect backdrop for their I Do's.
With a close gathering of 40 guests Renee and James wanted to make a subtle statement with their styling and let the food, drinks and conversation really take the lead for the evening.
Tables were styled with touches of floral and tea light candles whilst the dance floor remained open and flowed beautifully through the french doors out onto the deck by the waters edge where pallet lounges and bar tables were styled for the perfect mingling opportunity amongst guests.
And once the sun went down, the flicker of lights dancing across the water and the fabulous music playlist really set the scene for such a great night ahead.
Renee and James; the pleasure was all ours. You are both so humble and truely lovely to work with. Traits that carried throughout the planning and the big day. From our first catch-up, to coming to thank us as we delivered your florals, and extending to your family and friends who delivered vases back to us and even offered to help us back up the trailer as we had to pack up.
Your day was full of love, amazing friendship and support. Everything a wedding day ought to be.
Thank you for allowing us to play a small part in your magical day.
