{Blog Series} The Day in the Life of a Coordinator — WEDDING DAY! – Desiree & Jacob

Oy-vey! It’s been a hectic, crazy, action packed few months with end of the season weddings, a bridal conference in Jamaica {yes, I know, rough!}, a local business conference, where I was inspired by my peers and witnessed a speaker swallow a sword then throw the holidays & life in general into the mix equals craziness and no time to write the final part of this series.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been LOVING every crazy minute of it, so don’t take it the wrong way! 🙂

Now, let’s get back to what you’re really here about….THE WEDDING!

Desiree & Jacob were married on a beautiful, sunny, cool September day at the Cambridge Boat Club. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect weather day! Of course, I ordered it up especially for them! 🙂  I’m so glad to finally have gotten the chance to work with Leise Jones Photography, who took some amazing photos throughout the day! Thanks to her, I got to meet this amazing couple and be part of their wedding!

The setup went smooth and beautifully because of my amazing team, but it also helps when vendors work together to create an amazing event where anyone will help out if needed! Without the last minute help from the amazing catering staff of Summer Shack those chair sashes might have looked differently! After the ceremony, we all worked seamlessly together to flip the ceremony area into the dining room in record time.

Desiree looked absolutely stunning in her dress and Jacob looked so handsome in his suit. They decided to do a “First Look”. They wanted a special moment when it is just the two of them to relish in seeing each other in the moments before the ceremony.

The ceremony was a mix of the Christian and Jewish religions to honor both sides of their families. The best man built the chuppah, which was made from a birch tree from Jacob’s parents backyard. It was quite amazing to see and to hear {you could hear the bark settling if you stood close enough to it.}.

The speeches from the maid & matron of honor, the best man and both sets of parents were so heartfelt, it brought Desiree to happy tears.
Desiree & Jacob’s wedding colors were navy, cream and touches of New England fall colors. We set up a Persian table to honor Desiree’s Parisian heritage and the escort cards were hanging from window shutters that she got from her favorite craft fair seller!
They had their favorite book about Maine as their guestbook, where the guests could sign a blank page throughout the book and it sat in front of the fireplace that hung a banner across it with their names.

The guestbook table and fireplace was adorned with pictures of them and their loved ones who are no longer with them.


The centerpieces were simple floral arrangements by OUTBloom Floral on a burlap runner. The table numbers sat in granny green apples.

To give the rooms a romantic feel, we hung twinkle lights along the center poles and around the upstairs indoor balcony.
After the first dance, pie cutting, parent dances, the dance floor was rocking after the Hora until the last dance thanks to DJ Sara!

I was so happy to have been part of their wedding and to see everything come together beautifully after all the months of planning and spending time with them.

Yes, while you may have wedding planning withdrawals, I have withdrawals from not talking, seeing or emailing with my couples after the wedding. I miss them, so I’m always excited when we can finally catch up! I’m looking forward to seeing them soon to catch up and hear about the honeymoon!

Here’s a little what Desiree had to say about working with us:

“Tracy was absolutely incredible to work with and I can’t say enough wonderful things about her! She was the fairy godmother of our wedding. She went above and beyond the call of duty in so many ways, and she was there for us during every step of the process….”

Thank you Desiree & Jacob for the kind words & allowing me the honor of being part of your wedding day! XO

2015 Pantone Color of the Year

Pantone announced their 2015 Color of the Year!

Drum roll…please…


Pantone calls it “a red-brown hue named for the Sicilian wine. Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal, while it’s grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”

I’m all for anything that resembles wine! 😉 I’m very excited about this color and just love the bold & richness to it.  I think it will look quite stunning in just about every season here New England, but it will especially for a Fall or Winter wedding!

Haven’t picked your wedding colors yet? This could be it! Add a cream or yellow as a secondary color to make it pop! OH, the choices we could have fun with! 🙂

Need help planning your wedding? Want someone who loves to talk about weddings to bounce ideas off of ? I would love to hear from you! Check out some of our work here
