This weekend, I had the pleasure of putting together a fantastic Maine wedding. It was at The Dockside Grill at Handy Boat Marina, in Falmouth. We built the tent on the dock of the boat yard…it was so cool!

I had the arbor below, built for the ceremony. I used vintage Indian security gates, and then stained and aged the spruce frame to finish the look. Then, I added plants, vines and roses to complete my vision!

Thank you, to my BFF Anne Sowles, who took these fabulous pictures of the set-up. When the professional pictures are done, I will post them too!

The tent was spectacular no poles, clear sides and glorious views! We filled it with fragrant flowers, candles and rustic touches.

The head table, made up of two wood harvest tables, had a table runner of greens and flowers and floating candles.

My assistant Lindsey seen below helped pull the entire concept together for me!

The other tables had white linens, burlap runners and European vases filled with huge pale yellow, white and blush roses, green hydrangeas, and white peony’s.

I am so proud of the way this wedding turned out. The flowers were so stunning, they practically arranged themselves. I hope you have enjoyed this sneak peak at my weekend!

Thank you for stopping by. Let me know your thoughts on my wedding flowers and decor.

Best,

Celia

    Celia was our designer and event planner for this wedding. She was(is ) incomparable! She listened to our daughter’s ideas, and then continued to read our minds with all the more enhanced details! She checked in with us on constantly and handled everything: the tent set up, the electrical needs, she was our liaison with the Awesome Dockside Restaurant and their professional, warm staff, she designed the wedding “altar”, all the rustic flower arrangements, the tables…. the flow of the entire event. Her assistants were excellent as well!!! We were in the best hands!!! For our bride and our entire family- what Celia created from beginning to end was beyond our imagination. She amazed with us with her calm, seamless action, her follow- through, and her great taste and personality. I obviously can’t say enough about this lady.
