Spring Wedding Colors 2021

These spring wedding color ideas should provide you plenty of inspiration to create the perfect Spring Color Palette that works for your wedding. Spring weddings have a perennially breezy feel, making them incredibly beautiful and romantic on their own. For a Spring 2021 Wedding that is big on style, take a look at these fresh color palettes that perfectly compliment warmer temperatures and budding flowers.

Spring Wedding Colors #1: Dusty Blue, Peach, & Taupe

Spring Wedding Colors dusty blue peach taupe 1024x1024 - Spring Wedding Colors 2021

Why It Works –

This on-trend wedding color palette is incredibly popular and for good reason. Shades of Dusty Blue in differing textures impart a rich, timeless, and sophisticated look to any springtime soiree, while Peach is a feminine and fun departure from the Blush. Thoughtful hints of Taupe, Champagne, Mocha, and other light neutrals tie the two colors together for a fresh color palette that is classy but lighthearted, just like any Spring wedding should be.

Where & How – Allow Dusty Blue to steal the spotlight from the other colors but do so with care. Adorn your bridesmaids in blue but keep their bouquets light to create a beautiful contrast. Bring in pops of Peach in various places, such as table runners, napkins, pocket squares, or centerpieces, and use neutral colors in as many places as possible to successfully bring this look to life.

Accent With – This color combination looks beautiful with natural elements, which is perfectly on trend for Spring 2021 weddings. Use raw quartz accents in your centerpieces or print your menus on paper with a marbled pattern to ensure this color palette doesn’t look too basic.

This wedding color palette works perfectly for outdoor Spring weddings. Allow the bright, blue sky to compliment your colors for wedding pictures that truly pop.

Spring Wedding Colors #2: Lavender, Sage, & Ivory

Spring Wedding Colors lavender sage ivory 1024x1024 - Spring Wedding Colors 2021

Why It Works –

These colors combine beautifully to create the perfect backdrop for a fresh and elevated Spring wedding. Lavender is a soft yet stylish color that comes to life when offset by a dusty green Sage. Incorporating Ivory is a bold move that will allow everything to look even more spectacular.

Where & How – Lavender is a color that looks great on bridesmaids but don’t be afraid to incorporate various shades and patterns of purple into their dresses for a purposely mismatched look. Greenery with Ivory floral accents on your decor and in your bouquets will ensure that your wedding is right on-trend. For the guys, gray suits will blend perfectly with this Spring palette.

Accent With – Barn-board has a rough texture that expertly contrasts with this delicate color scheme. Use pieces of reclaimed wood as a base for your centerpieces or various signage around your reception space. The more weathered or whitewashed the wood, the better. Perfect For – Spring barn weddings come to life when offset by this incredible color palette. The raw textures and antique charm of barn venues compliments these classic colors beautifully.

Spring Wedding Colors #3: Blush, Dusty Rose, & Gold

Spring Wedding Colors dusty rose blush gold 1024x1024 - Spring Wedding Colors 2021

Why It Works –

Differing shades of Blush have a lux look that is always wedding ready. For a color palette that is made for Spring weddings, focus on lighter shades of pink and incorporate Dusty Rose sparingly for maximum effect. The stunning Gold metallic sheen livens up these various shades of blush for a look that is thoughtful and surprisingly unexpected.

Where & How – Dressing your bridesmaids in blush is an easy choice, but don’t be afraid to allow your Maid of Honor to wear Dusty Rose for an elegant way to make her stand out. White and Blush florals will bring this look to life within your decor, and gold mercury glass accents allow everything to have a polished appearance that is also relaxed and refined. Navy or Grey suits both work with this palette and contrast beautifully against these ultra-feminine hues.

Accent With – Although it may seem strange, tiny touches of Black or Charcoal really bring this Spring color palette to life. Opt for graphic, geometric patterns on the back of your menus or tie your napkins together with black striped ribbon. It may seem counter-intuitive, but when done correctly this elevates the look of your wedding from ordinary to extraordinary.

Perfect For – Sophisticated Spring weddings that big on style. We could see this color palette dressing up a historic venue for a wedding that is classy, modern, and romantic all at once.

Summer Wedding Colors 2021

Summer is one of the most popular seasons for weddings, and it’s easy to see why. Summer means warm afternoons, captivating sunsets, and a sky full of twinkling stars – all of which combine to make a beautiful backdrop for any classically romantic wedding day.

If you want to create a Summer 2021 wedding that is right on-trend and slightly cutting edge, copy these unique summer wedding colors for a fancy midsummer affair.

Summer Wedding Colors copper teal ivory 1024x1024 - Summer Wedding Colors 2021

Summer Wedding Colors #1: Copper, Teal, & Ivory

Why It Works –

These tones are rich and regal without being too bright, heavy, or overpowering for a Summer wedding. The subtle gleam from the touches of Copper will give your wedding day a soft glow. Teal provides a striking contrast to this metallic tone while also providing an unexpected departure from Dusty Blue, a color that will become overdone by the time Summer 2021 is over. Ivory balances these two luxurious shades beautifully and allows this entire Summer wedding palette to effortlessly strike a balance between looking opulent and romantic.

Make this Summer 2021 wedding color palette come to life by incorporating a multitude of textures. Teal or Blue-Green velvet or brocade is ideal, whether you use it in big sweeping statements like in table runners or incorporate into tiny touches, like a velvet ring box. Mismatched copper flatware will bring your tablescapes to life, and creates an impact when also incorporated in soft, delicate places like your bouquet ribbons. Your bridesmaids will also look beautiful in mismatched metallic gowns that feature varying textures and designs


Accent With – Illuminate this Summer color palette by taking your lighting to the next level. Vintage Edison bulbs are perfectly on trend and create a soft, coppery glow, bathing your entire reception in flattering light. It will bring out the rich, deep tones of the teal when the sun goes down, creating an elegant and romantic ambiance that is as wedding-worthy as it gets.

Summer Wedding Colors #2: Tangerine, Sapphire Blue, & Magenta

Summer Wedding Colors Tangerine sapphire blue magenta 1024x1024 - Summer Wedding Colors 2021

Why It Works –

Weddings in 2021 have been notoriously lacking in color. While the “Greenery and Ivory” trend imparts a timeless look, surprise all of your guests by playing with color – lots of it! Warm, eclectic, and vibrant hues scream summer and are sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face. It’s the happiest day of your life, so celebrate it in loud, beautiful colors.

Where & How – Choosing on-trend, vibrant shades is the key to creating a perfectly styled wedding. Use warm tones like Tangerine, Magenta, and Bright Pink for exciting floral arrangements, but use an editor’s eye to balance out these colors with bright greens and accents of ivory. Use Sapphire Blue sparingly and always pair it with white – patterned china makes for photo-worthy table settings, for example. Allow your bridesmaids to pick their favorite vibrant color or encourage them to wear Lilly Pulitzer-esque prints for a bridal party look that will take everyone by surprise.

Accent With – Whimsical touches like oversized helium balloons give your wedding a stylish yet lighthearted touch. Think of ways to break from convention – allow your flower girls to wave colorful ribbon wands or have your guests blow bubbles as you walk down the aisle. Whatever you do, don’t take your event too seriously! These colors look best when accompanied by fun.

Summer Wedding Colors #3: Dusty Blue, Blush, & Bronze

Summer Wedding Colors dusty blue blush bronze 1024x1024 - Summer Wedding Colors 2021

Why It Works –

This color palette is classic and sophisticated, creating a wedding day so beautiful that everyone will be talking about it. All of these dusty, romantic colors combine in beautiful ways. With that said, none of these colors are too loud or too trendy, allowing them to blend into the background so your love story can take center stage.

Where & How – Dusty Blue gives everything an antique feel, so use it as often as possible. Your table settings, invitations, and even bridesmaid’s dresses will look gorgeous when adorned with this effortless hue. Blush looks beautiful in your flowers, of course, but light pink patterns on your menus, programs, or signage brings romance to life. Bronze (or Rose Gold, if you prefer) adds texture and style. Find accent pieces like antique candle sticks, flatware, or even jewelry to bring this metallic tone to life.

Accent With –  Mismatched glassware works perfectly with this delightfully romantic wedding color palette. Visit an antique store to find colorful goblets, pitchers, or glassware to add texture and dimension. Antique liqueur glasses are perfect for cocktail hour, while mismatched floral tea cups can create adorable centerpieces.

Mountain View Grand Resort

Bridal Session 12 1 1024x682 - Mountain View Grand Resort

For a New Hampshire wedding venue that is breathtaking both inside and out, Mountain View Grand Resort is simply perfect. This exceptional and expansive venue offers a multitude of event spaces that accommodate intimate gatherings and large receptions alike. Not to mention, the amenities, photo ops, and surrounding scenery are unmatched.

Read on to learn about hosting your beautiful New Hampshire wedding at the Mountain View Grand Resort.

Mountain View Grand Resort Overview

Mountain View Grand Resort is a grand hotel nestled in the heart of the White Mountains. With over 400-acres of manicured property, the picturesque setting promises to provide a stunning background for your wedding day. No matter if you are seeking an intimate, outdoor soiree or a large, over-the-top affair, Mountain View Grand Resort can easily make your dream into a reality.

Although filled with modern amenities, Mountain View Grand Resort is extremely proud of its historic roots. In 1865, a couple of weary travelers were traveling from Montreal to Boston when their stagecoach became stuck in the mud. Searching for a place to stay, they stumbled upon the home of the Dodge family, who graciously opened their doors and allowed the couple to spend the night. In the morning, the couple was enchanted the surrounding scenery and gracious hospitality. They recommended that the Dodge family turn their home into an inn. Following this fortuitous exchange, the Dodge family opened an inn named “Mountain View House,” which eventually grew into the resort it is today.

Grown it certainly has – today, the resort features 141 guest rooms, a challenging 9-hole golf course, and an award-winning spa on site. In addition, guests are welcome to enjoy a variety of additional on-site amenities, dine in one of the in-house restaurants, and take part in seasonal activities during their stay.

For large receptions, the Crystal Ballroom is a stylish and sophisticated indoor space. This expansive and impressive ballroom features incredible floor-to-ceiling windows, which provide you with breathtaking 360-degree views of the surrounding scenery. You’ll also find a glittering crystal chandelier suspended in the center of the room’s domed ceiling for added elegance and ambiance.

The Crystal Ballroom can also be combined with the adjacent Mountain View Tent. This newly constructed space provides you with the perfect place to hold your ceremony before retreating to the Crystal Ballroom to eat and dance the night away at your reception. It can also be turned into a semi-outdoor reception space depending on your event’s specifications.

The Presidential Ballroom is a slightly more intimate event space that is smaller in size but no less spectacular. It includes twinkling chandeliers and a large fireplace, which serves as an opulent focal point. The Presidential Deck and Promenade are also right outside, giving your guests plenty of room to mingle during your cocktail hour and take in the incredible scenery. If you are hosting a smaller affair, you’ll also find private rooms available to host intimate receptions, rehearsal dinners, and additional events during your wedding weekend.

In spring and summer, lush greenery and a bright blue sky provide the perfect backdrop for your nuptials.

Chef Joe’s Catering

Based in Franconia, New Hampshire, Chef Joe’s is a full-service wedding catering service. Chef Joe’s specializes in helping couples create a wedding that is nothing short of unforgettable. While there are many factors that go into creating a picture-perfect wedding, treating your guests to plenty of food and drink is of the utmost importance. Working with an experienced team of experts – like the ones at Chef Joe’s Catering – is a sure-fire way to ensure that your day is as festive as it is fabulous.

F7A4566 684x1024 - Chef Joe's Catering

Overview

With a 30-year background in the restaurant industry, Chef Joe began his catering business nearly 12 years ago and has been going full steam ever since. Chef Joe’s Catering primarily focuses on weddings and other largescale special events. Doing this means they are well versed in what goes into creating an exceptional experience for every single guest on your invite list.

Rather than having couples choose a cookie cutter wedding menu, the team at Chef Joe’s Catering sits down with each couple to learn more about their individual preferences and tastes. They are more than willing to re-create dishes that have sentimental meaning, whether it be your great-grandmother’s time-honored recipe or the dessert you ate on the night of your engagement. This team of professionals believes that – when done correctly – the food served at your wedding reception can and should add another layer of meaning to your big day.

Catering Services

With years of experience catering weddings and special events, Chef Joe’s Catering is able to accommodate wedding receptions that range from intimate backyard gatherings to large, upscale events with more than 300 guests in attendance. After an initial meeting, a customized menu is created based upon the couple’s preferences and budget. A tasting is then scheduled upon booking so that the wedding menu is fine-tuned before being finalized.

Being an on-site catering service, everything served is freshly cooked at your reception site. With a fleet of trucks that feature refrigeration, convection ovens, grills, and holding ovens, every plate of food they serve has been freshly cooked (rather than re-heated) immediately before it is placed in front of your guests. This results in tasty dishes that will far surpass the quality of traditional, predictable “wedding food” that everyone has experienced at least once in their life.

In addition to wedding catering, Chef Joe’s can also coordinate your bar service so that everything is taken care of by the same team. This also ensures that your cocktail hour complements and flows beautifully with the dinner service at your wedding reception. Having one team in charge of both aspects is incredibly valuable, as it ensures everyone is on the same page in regard to the overall timing of your wedding day festivities.

More than Weddings…

The team at Chef Joe’s can also assist with coordination, rentals, day-of setup, and wedding menu design. Among their many services, they feature an on-staff wedding coordinator who can work with brides to ensure virtually every important detail of the day looks picture-perfect and runs smoothly. Available upon request, this service can be coordinated directly with the team at Chef Joe’s at the time of your initial consultation.

In addition to creating an amazing wedding day meal, Chef Joe’s also accommodates rehearsal dinners, bridal brunches and more out of their hub at the Franconia Village House. Featuring both an intimate indoor dining area and an outdoor tented patio space, they can accommodate gatherings and special events of up to 150 people.

Food Trends & Tips

Because of their extensive experience catering wedding receptions, Chef Joe’s is incredibly familiar with current wedding trends and tips that ensure brides have a relaxed and wonderful wedding day. With weddings becoming increasingly relaxed, more and more couples are opting for buffet-style meals rather than traditional plated dinners. Food stations, robatayaki bars, and raw bars are becoming more popular, as they allow guests to mingle and interact with each other during the dinner service. Buffet style dinners also generally make it much easier to accommodate guests with food allergies or dietary restrictions.

To really “wow” your wedding guests, the team at Chef Joe’s recommends placing as much of an emphasis on your cocktail hour as possible. Although it is a part of the wedding that most brides, grooms, and bridal parties don’t get to enjoy, the interim time between the ceremony and dinner can truly define a guest’s wedding experience. They have plenty of ideas when it comes to creating a cocktail hour that will properly set the tone for the rest of your wedding reception.

Book Chef Joe’s Catering for Your Big Day

When you book an experienced catering service for your wedding reception, you receive far more than just delicious food. Caterers are trained to work together with your venue and other vendors to ensure that your day runs on-time and without issue. The team at Chef Joe’s Catering is familiar with everything that goes into making weddings simply incredible and are committed to making every bride and groom’s big day as effortless as it is delicious.

While Chef Joe’s typically caters Vermont and New Hampshire weddings, a travel fee is available for weddings that take place outside of their coverage area. To learn more about their wedding menus, catering services, and more, visit https://www.chefjoescatering.com or contact them directly at 603-823-8589.

5 Things to Consider When Choosing Your Wedding Venue

After the initial excitement of getting engaged has subsided, it’s time to hit the ground running and start wedding planning! Even if you have multiple Pinterest boards filled with ideas, the first steps in the actual planning process can still be incredibly daunting. Choosing your wedding venue is the first and perhaps most important decision you will make in regard to your wedding. After all, the wedding venue is the foundation that determines exactly how all of your Pinterest-worthy ideas will come to life.

There are plenty of things to consider and questions to ask before saying “We Do” to a wedding venue. These 5 tips will help you determine which event space will act as the perfect backdrop for the biggest day of your life.

Kittle wedding 1851 1 1024x683 - 5 Things to Consider When Choosing Your Wedding Venue

Consider Your Wedding Date

Committing to a wedding venue also means committing to a wedding date. Some wedding venues can book out up to 2-years early, especially on popular dates (like holiday weekends) and during popular seasons (like Summer & Fall).

Most venues will be happy to provide insight into their availability early in the process. With that said, if you have your heart set upon a specific day, month, or season, be sure to be upfront about that fact before even making an appointment to view an event space.

Questions to Ask
– What does your availability look like for the upcoming year/years?
– What deposit is required for you to hold our date?
– Is there any flexibility in regard to the date after the contract has been signed?

Consider Your Other Vendors

Because booking your wedding venue means committing to a wedding date if there are any other must-have vendors you wish to work with, be sure to communicate with them before finalizing your decision. The last thing you want is to book your venue only to discover your favorite photographer or florist already has a prior commitment on that specific day.

Some venues also require couples to work only with a provided list of vendors. If this is the case, be sure to research these vendors before committing to an event space. If none of them look promising or fit within your budget, that might be a sign that the venue is not a good fit for your wedding.

Questions to Ask
– Are there any vendors we are required to work with?
– Do you have a list of preferred vendors you recommend?
– Is there an on-site caterer and/or bar service?

Consider the Costs

A venue should be totally transparent with you about the fees required to book their space. Keep in mind – as is the case with many wedding vendors – the price they initially advertise may not include certain add-ons, like taxes or fees. There also may be an upcharge to book an event on popular dates or during peak seasons.

It is also important to ask what is included in the rental fee. Some venues will include chairs, tables, linens, and décor items. Others may only provide you the space, meaning additional vendors will be required for these important basics. Don’t hesitate to ask for a realistic final cost before signing any paperwork.

Questions to Ask
– What is included in your rental costs?
– How long will we have the space for?
– Are there any additional taxes or fees?
– Is there a deposit to book the venue and is this deposit refundable?

Consider the Logistics

When looking at wedding venues, it’s hard not to let your imagination run wild. Don’t forget, however, to consider some not-so-fun facts. Along with basics like overall capacity and costs, consider if there is ample parking or shuttle services available for your guests. If any of your guests are handicapped, be sure to inquire about how well the venue can accommodate guests in wheelchairs or those who have difficulty walking long distances.

Additionally, ask yourself how the location of the venue will work with the rest of your day’s events. A scenic venue in the middle of the woods may be beautiful, but if it is located too far from your ceremony space it may put a strain on your guests. If the majority of your guests are coming in from out of town, consider how close the venue is to an airport and popular hotels. These things may seem trivial several months out from your wedding, but these little details can have a big impact on your guest’s overall experience.

Questions to Ask
– Are you equipped to handle handicapped guests?
– Is parking free and how many spaces are there in total?
– Will inclement weather affect my desired plans? If so, what backup plan is in place?

Consider the Reviews

Everyone knows that online reviews can be a sounding board for disgruntled customers with too-lofty expectations. On the other hand, some companies like to encourage employees, friends, and family members to leave unfounded positive reviews. Reviews and ratings from Google, Yelp, The Knot, Wedding Wire, and Facebook should all be taken into consideration when choosing a wedding venue. If anything seems troubling, don’t be afraid to address these concerns with the venue directly. Online reviews only tell one side of the story, so always allow a business to tell their side before taking any negative reviews to heart.

Wedding venues will usually have photos of previous events on their website to show guests what their venue really looks like when a wedding is in full swing. For additional insight, Googling “Venue Name + Real Wedding” for an idea of what your wedding (and wedding photos) will end up looking like.

Questions to Ask
– What problems have you had with previous clients?
– How did you resolve these issues?
– If I have an issue on my wedding day, who will be on hand to see it is resolved?

Conclusion

Choosing a wedding venue isn’t a decision that should be taken lightly. This first step sets the tone for the rest of the planning process. Be sure to tour multiple spaces, ask plenty of questions, and sleep on your decision before signing any paperwork. Once you do find the perfect venue, however, the rest should easily fall into place.

The Maplewood Golf Resort


For a stylish venue that will act as a gorgeous backdrop for your New Hampshire wedding, The Maplewood Golf Resort is an ideal option. Both inside and out, this storied venue is teeming with elements that channel the unique beauty of New England. Attractive architecture, inspired décor, and sweeping landscapes combine to create a one-of-a-kind event space that is nothing short of impeccable.

From its historic roots to its expansive ballroom, read on to learn why The Maplewood will provide you with a wedding day experience you and your guests will never forget.

The Maplewood Golf Resort: A Storied Past

The invention of the American railroad system in the early 1900s allowed tourism to become an incredibly popular pastime. Constructed in 1888, The Maplewood was once a grand hotel that hosted affluent New England society members who were looking to escape crowded city life. People were known to travel up to 10-hours by railway to experience the area’s serene landscapes, sweeping scenery, and refreshing mountain air. The most impressive and luxurious hotel in the Bethlehem area, The Maplewood even hosted Presidents Grant and Roosevelt during its golden age.

In the early 1900s, sport and leisure activities were also taking the country by storm. To capitalize on this thriving industry and to provide upscale guests an unmatched getaway, The Maplewood’s championship golf course was constructed in 1914. In order to complement the resort’s grandeur, the 18-hole course was designed by none other than Donald Ross, a man who is still considered one of the most prolific golf course architects in history. His unmatched understanding of the sport’s artistry allowed him to craft holes that test each player’s unique ability while encouraging a balanced approach to the game. The creatively calculated course demands accuracy in the most enjoyable way possible and continues to challenge players of every experience level.

A fire in the 1960s destroyed the building that originally served as the grand Maplewood hotel. The impressive building you see today was originally used as a leisure and event space for hotel guests. Its remarkable architecture and amazing location overlooking the golf course, however, make it the perfect place for a modern event venue. Recently revitalized, it currently serves as the golf course’s clubhouse as well as a wedding and event space. Fortunately for visitors, the entire location continues to pay homage to the property’s important and historic roots.

The Maplewood Golf Resort: Venue Overview

Today, the grounds and building interiors are still reminiscent of a glorious bygone era. Beautiful décor and unmatched scenery are just the beginning. With a variety of options when it comes to your reception, the entire venue can be utilized in virtually any way that the staff sees fit. It’s no wonder so many couples consider this a superior place to host their festivities.

The interior not only features picturesque parlors, seating areas, and a magnificent ballroom – it also includes 20 guestrooms. This means that the venue and your guest’s rooms are all conveniently located under one roof. Even better, this hotel isn’t usually open to the public. When you rent The Maplewood for your wedding, your friends and family have the exclusive ability to rent the property’s guests rooms. This ensures that the only people staying on-site during your wedding weekend are your invited guests.

Matt Wendy Wedding 36 683x1024 683x1024 - The Maplewood Golf Resort

In addition to a wonderful reception space, the property features a historic chapel located just across the street. Although not currently a functioning church, it boasts an original stone foundation as well as breathtaking wooden doors and stunning stained-glass windows, making it a beautiful place to hold your nuptials. In addition to this spectacular amenity, there are plenty of spectacular places on-site that are ready to serve as the background for your wedding photos. In warm-weather months, blooming flowers, green hedges, and the building’s stately turret are fantastic features. Inside of the venue, historic architecture in the parlors and main staircase always ensure stunning photo opportunities.

The Maplewood Golf Resort: A Personal Approach

You’ll enjoy so much more than a beautiful event space when you rent The Maplewood Golf Resort for your New Hampshire wedding. Because it hosts only one reception space and a limited number of guest rooms, the entire venue and staff are focused solely on your wedding during the entirety of the weekend. The spaces feel cozy, old-fashioned, elegant, and relaxed. With that said, an experienced and professional staff ensures the couple and their guests are comfortable and cared for every step of the way.

The joy and excitement in the air during a wedding at The Maplewood is practically contagious. The staff enjoys the formal events that take place at the resort – and not just because it gives them a break from serving golfers. They consider it rewarding work and genuinely enjoy providing every visitor with a stress-free, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Their familiarity with on-site events also allows them to anticipate any problems that may arise and avoid them without causing a single hiccup in your festivities. The event manager and other team members truly consider The Maplewood their home, and can’t wait to open their doors to you on your exciting and unforgettable wedding day.

Beautiful Wedding Flowers – Emily Herzig Floral Studio

Whiting Wedding 1014 1024x684 - Beautiful Wedding Flowers - Emily Herzig Floral Studio

Based in Littleton, New Hampshire, Emily Herzig is an experienced Floral Designer, Wedding Stylist, and the namesake behind Emily Herzig Floral Studio. With years of experience in floral design and an impressive portfolio of work, it’s safe to say that Emily knows a thing or two about creating beautiful bouquets, wedding centerpieces, corsages, and more.
If you are in the market for a florist who is passionate about her work, committed to using local products and has a serious eye for style, read on to learn more about Emily and how her Floral Studio operates.

Emily’s Background

With two garden enthusiasts for parents, it’s safe to say that owning a floral studio was – at least somewhat – Emily’s fate. Unsurprisingly, one of her very first childhood jobs was at an organic nursery in Franconia, NH. While earning her Bachelors of Science in Social Work and Family Studies at UNH, she also got an education in flower design thanks to her part-time job at the campus flower shop. This highly educational experience would serve her well, and after graduation, she went on to work at a little floral shop in Portsmouth on weekends in addition to working full time at her career.

After moving back to the area with her husband, Emily found that despite working a fulfilling full-time job as a Social Worker, there was a huge part of her that missed the floral industry. Thanks to a little encouragement from her husband, she purchased a $200 flower cooler and the rest is history. At just 23 years old, Emily quit her job and dove head first into her life’s calling.
Now, 15 years later, Emily Herzig Floral Studio operates out a private studio and creates breathtaking floral designs for weddings, styled shoots, and various print publications. With a commitment to customer service and an experienced eye for design, one look at her portfolio of floral designs makes one thing very apparent: flowers are Emily’s passion.

An Emphasis on Local Products

Every week during wedding season (approximately May – October), Emily takes a trip to the New England Flower Exchange in Boston to handpick fresh stems for her clients. This allows her to access locally grown flowers as well as those grown in Holland, South America, and other corners of the globe. Being surrounded by an endless variety of unique blooms keeps her constantly inspired and continually educated about the world of floral design.
With that said, Emily is also fascinated by the idea of using locally grown stems within her creations. More and more, brides around the country are choosing to use native or locally grown flowers in their wedding arrangements. Not only does this choice allow brides to support their local community, it also positively impacts the environment in a variety of ways. Inspired by this idea, Emily has even started a cut-and-grow garden so that she can one day be a part of the process (literally) from the ground up.

Choosing Emily Herzig Floral Design for your Wedding Flowers

The cornerstone of Emily’s business is undoubtedly weddings. Her gorgeous arrangements and designs have been featured in New Hampshire Bride Magazine among other publications. For brides looking to work with a committed New Hampshire florist, she proves to be an excellent choice.
Delivery Area
Emily has created arrangements for weddings that have spanned the entirety of New England. Her basic delivery area extends from Bar Harbor, Maine to Boston, Massachusetts and includes most areas in Vermont and New Hampshire.
Cost & Budget
Emily requires a minimum of $3,500 for her design work. For a specific quote, please contact her directly.

Volume

To ensure that every wedding receives the proper personal focus, Emily attempts to only book one wedding per weekend. This allows her team to give each client their full attention in the days and weeks before the wedding day.

The Planning Process

Emily considers educating her clients a huge part of her purpose as a florist. Most brides, grooms, and their families come for an initial consultation and are unsure about different types of flowers, what is in season, and how the process works. Thanks to her vast experience in the industry, Emily is happy to share her knowledge so that everyone is on the same page from day one.
To book her services, an initial consultation is recommended. This allows everyone to sit down and have an open and honest conversation about the couple’s budget, wedding colors, likes, dislikes, and the overall vision for their wedding flowers. After the formal booking process and deposit, Emily and her clients work together to create a cohesive vision for their wedding flowers, from the bridal bouquet all the way to the corsages. Emily then creates a personalized visual mood board that’s specific for each of her clients and their desired color palette. Then, she creates a detailed outline that lists and describes the arrangements she’s going to provide on the wedding day.

Tell Emily that Stephanie and Bill sent you!

Approximately four to six weeks out from the wedding day, Emily sits down with the couple for a final meeting – preferably at the wedding venue – to show them a sample arrangement and get their final approval. From there, the final design work is done in the days preceding the wedding. Emily visits the Flower Exchange and local farms to collect her stems before creating the wedding centerpieces, bouquets, and any other requested elements. The flowers are then typically delivered to the venue on the wedding day and cleaned up the following day.

After the Wedding

One of the best aspects of Emily’s process takes place after the wedding has ended. She takes any leftover wedding flowers or arrangements to nursing homes or hospice centers so that they can brighten up the lives of those who need it most. If you are interested in donating your wedding flowers after your wedding has ended, be sure to mention it during the planning process.
 

Common Misconceptions

We asked Emily what brides should understand before working with a florist. There were three points that she said frequently come up when working with brides and grooms.

#1 – Cost

Misconception: Flowers can be costly. According to Emily, magazines often show over-the-top arrangements in their styled shoots without giving brides any idea of their actual cost, which can lead to unrealistic expectations during the planning process.
Solution: Be realistic with your budget. This will allow your florist to work with you and create floral displays you’ll love but that don’t break the bank.

#2 – DIY Floral Design

Misconception: Emily told us that many times, Pinterest can make DIY floral projects seem much easier than they actually are. She cautions people who are considering creating their own centerpieces that they might be left with a finished product that doesn’t meet their high expectations.
Solution: Emily recommends that DIY brides do a full-fledged trial run well before the wedding day. If the bouquet turns out incredible, you’ll be more prepared as the wedding day nears. If it doesn’t live up to your expectations, however, you still have plenty of time to contact a professional florist.

#3 – Choosing Flowers Out of Season

Misconception: Many brides have their heart set on a specific flower, only to find out that it is out of season when their wedding actually occurs. While specific flowers grown in different climates can be shipped in for out of season weddings, this process is expensive and – at times – unreliable.
Solution: If there is a specific flower that is a must-have, find out when that flower is in season before setting your wedding day. Or, Emily recommends working together with your florist to figure out which flowers are realistically available and going from there.

Wedding Vows – The Secret To Writing Yours

Writing your own wedding vows can be a daunting task. There is so much pressure to put boundless amounts of emotion into a few perfect words that it can be hard to even know where to begin. With that said, writing romantic wedding vows doesn’t have to be difficult.
Here are a few secrets that will help you pen the most amazing wedding vows possible, as well as tips and examples to draw inspiration from before sitting down to write your own vows.

Don’t Be Afraid to be Different

When it comes to writing wedding vows, don’t make the mistake of thinking you have to stick to a typical format. Anyone can write down a few cliché sentiments and call it a day, but your vows will become instantly more intimate when you include details that are unique to your love story.
Unique wedding vows are often the most poignant and romantic. Remember, your beloved is marrying you, not a Hallmark card. Insert details about your lives together and the individual journeys that lead both of you to this moment.

Wedding Vow Ideas:
What is it that makes your love story unique? What sets your fiancé / fiancée apart from everyone else in the world? What cherished moments, experiences, or interests are only shared by the two of you?

Examples:
“Our dogs couldn’t ask for a better mom and I couldn’t ask for a more wonderful woman to marry”
“I knew I loved you on our second date, when you spilled ice cream all over yourself and laughed.”

Timing is Everything

Wedding planning is full of important deadlines that need to be met well ahead of schedule. Because of this, it can be tempting to write your wedding vows months in advance so that you can check them off your all-important “to-do” list.
Writing your wedding vows too far in advance, however, can make them seem stale and far too polished. Instead, set aside time to write your vows during the days leading up to the wedding. With the wedding festivities already underway, it can be easier to express your true feelings about the commitment you are about to make.

Wedding Vow Ideas:
In the days before your wedding, what have you been thinking or feeling? What moments leading up to the day have taken your breath away?

Examples:
“All I could think about last night was how I am continually amazed by you and how lucky I am to have you in my life.”
“When I saw you sitting across from me at the rehearsal dinner, you took my breath away and every laugh reminded me why you are the one”

Less is More

It can be easy to go overboard when it comes to writing romantic wedding vows. Sometimes, however, the most amazing vows are ones that are short and to the point.
If you find yourself rambling because you can’t quite find the right words, take a breath and reconsider what it is you are trying to say. Remember – a genuine “I love you” is more impactful than a long paragraph filled with big words and flowery language.

Wedding Vow Ideas:
If you only had one, short sentence to express your love, what would you say? If you could only pick 2 things to vow to your beloved, what would they be and why?

Examples:
“I wanted to promise you so many things, but when I thought it over, only 2 things truly mattered….”
“The only thing I can give you is my heart, forever.”

Speak From the Heart

Don’t stress if you aren’t a professional wordsmith – no one at your wedding is expecting you to write the next great poem. For the most romantic wedding vows, simply write what you are feeling and use your own words.
If you find yourself stuck, clear your head and start writing down what you feel, even if the grammar is incorrect or it comes out in short, incomplete phrases. Or, create lists to organize your thoughts. When you are done, go back and sort out these words to create the perfect wedding vows.

Wedding Vow Ideas:
What are 5 characteristics about your bride or groom that you are the most in love with? What adjectives describe how you are feeling about getting married? What are the moments you consider milestones in your relationship?

Examples:
“You are kind, caring, and radiant, which is why I am so excited and happy about the idea of spending our lives together.”
“Our first date, our trip to the mountains, and the day we closed on our house were all days that reminded me you are the only one I want to spend my life with.”

I hope these tips have helped to show you just how easy creating awesome, personalized wedding vows can be.

Bridal Posing Tips

No matter if you are taking solo bridal photos during your pre-wedding Bridal Session or are gathered for wedding photos with your entire bridal party, these 7 bridal posing tips will ensure your wedding photography is picture perfect.

Very few people are comfortable being photographed. People often tend to stiffen up when they know a photographer is around, which can, unfortunately, result in less than perfect wedding pictures. Luckily, a little preparation can go a long way to ensure your wedding photos come out looking stellar.

Tip 1: Remember Your Angles

Kittle 9 1024x684 - Bridal Posing Tips

You don’t have to be a top model to know which poses are the most flattering. If you feel you have a “good side,” don’t be afraid to let your photographer know so you can come up with bridal poses you feel great about. It’s also important to never face the camera in a straightforward manner – doing so can make you look wider and create awkward images. The overall best wedding bridal posing is to angle away from the camera with your feet slightly apart and your weight focused on your back foot. This will ensure you come off looking relaxed and flawless in all of your photos.

Tip 2: Don’t Forget About Your Flowers

One thing that brides often don’t realize until their wedding day is that holding a bouquet of flowers is actually incredibly awkward, especially when posing for professional photos. Luckily, a few simple techniques ensure that your flowers aren’t totally in the way. Tipping your flowers slightly to the side creates a relaxed look that translates well in pictures. If you want your bouquet to take center stage, hold it in front of your belly button (no higher!) and tip it slightly towards the camera so all of its beauty can be easily captured.

Tip 3: Ensure your Look is Always On-Point

Pilla Wedding 1184 684x1024 - Bridal Posing Tips

Even the most perfectly posed wedding photos can be ruined by disheveled hair or imperfect makeup. Don’t hesitate to take a few minutes to touch up your look before getting your wedding photos taken, especially if you happen to shed a few happy tears. You can also ask a maid of honor or bridesmaid to keep an eye out and let you know if anything needs a quick fix during your photo session.

Tip 4: Smiling is Encouraged

Lambert Wedding 1250 1024x684 - Bridal Posing Tips

Remembering to smile may sound like a simple tip, but it is one that brides sometimes forget. Weddings can be chaotic days that require a lot of emotional and mental energy, but it’s important to not let any stress show on your face during photographs. Taking a few moments before your photo session to have a quiet, private moment with your new spouse will not only melt the stress away, it will also create a wedding day moment you will remember forever.

Tip 5: Don’t Be Afraid to Let Loose

Gaffney 26 1024x683 - Bridal Posing Tips

While wedding photography poses require a bit of thought, it’s important not to overthink the entire process. Genuine laughter and candid moments between couples and friends often create the most amazing photos, as they capture the authentic joy of your wedding day. Before heading in front of the camera, shake off your nerves and remember to enjoy every single moment.

Tip 6: Trust Your Wedding Photographer

The best way to ensure that your bridal posing look incredible is to find an experienced photographer that you trust. Not only will your wedding photographer do everything he or she can to calm your fears while in front of the camera, they will also provide you with very simple posing tips that ensure your wedding photos look amazing. Also, don’t worry if their suggested poses feel awkward at the time – sometimes the most uncomfortable stances create the most remarkable still photos.

Tip 7: Create a Great Relationship

It’s especially important to work with the same photographer during your entire engagement (for your engagement photos, a bridal photo session, boudoir photos, and more) so that by the time you reach your wedding, you have already built a great relationship. Understanding your photographer’s style and learning how to communicate with them will ultimately make you more comfortable in front of the camera on your big day. This allows you to relax and feel confident that your wedding photos are in good hands when it matters the most.
Hopefully, you found these bridal posing tips helpful.  Remember to trust your wedding photographer, after all, it is their job to make sure you look your best!
