Patriots Point

A gorgeous bride, a handsome groom, a beautiful May day, a venue on the water..hmmmm stuff dreams are made of huh? Well that is what Courtney and Matt’s day was like this past May – and we were so thrilled to be a part of it.

Judy designed an absolutely gorgeous bouquet for Courtney using peonies, garden roses, stock, delphinium, dusty miller, and lily of the valley.

The Wedding Ceremony took place on the lawn overlooking the harbor- we used a curved white arbor as a base- added some flowing white fabric, a couple of bouquets and a timeless wrought iron table for the unity sand ceremony; creating the soft and romantic setting Courtney & Matt dreamed of.

The Reception tent was just as soft and romantic as the ceremony, centerpieces of peonies, garden roses, hydrangea, delphinium, dusty miller and queene anne’s lace -fashioned in a mercury glass vase was gorgeous on the pewter linens. Engaging Events created the vintage looking wooden table  numbers.

Cake Designer Jim Smeal created a gorgeous -soft and romantic cake that had a little of the silver color to it -and we placed it front and center for all to see:)

Calligraphy by Request handled all the escort card, and food sign calligraphy for us- what beautiful, timeless writing she has!


Continuing the soft romantic look- Engaging Events hung our crystal chandeliers and café lighting in the existing tent creating that oh so dreamy atmosphere:)


Many thanks to Courtney and Matt for allowing us to be a part of their special day- it was gorgeous and so were you!!


The Island House

Lauren and Ben

The Island House

April 27, 2013

A spring day on the water at the Island House is always a treat, but especially with this happy couple! Lauren and Ben are always smiling- you can tell how much happiness they bring to each others lives by just looking at them! We LOVED Lauren’s chosen color palette – a beautiful water colored blue- almost peacock colored but not quite, apple green and coral. To enhance the organic look we chose linens with texture and burlap runners and ties to bring it all together.

Lauren and Ben wanted to have a few DIY projects but nothing that would take away from the week of the wedding- so they made some directional signs, and some kraft tag that the guests wrote messages on and hung from the screen Lauren ordered online.


Our own Judy Johnston fashioned the gorgeous bouquets  the girls carried using succulents, button mums, ranunculus, garden roses, thistle , and sweet pea.

Guests danced the nite away under the tent- which featured a dessert table, and umbrella tables overlooking the water.


A great time was had by all- and we were so thrilled to be a part of it. It was the 2nd wedding we had done for Lauren’s family and it was great to see all of them again. All of our love and well wishes go out to Lauren and Ben!

White Point Gardens and Harborside East

White Point Gardens and Harborside East

March 24, 2013

We were so thrilled to help Leigh and Pat tie the knot at their wedding this spring…I had the pleasure of helping with Pat’s sisters wedding several years ago so it was so fun to work with his family again. Leigh and Patrick are bartenders at two local hot spots The Brick and Mac’s Place. Their priority for the reception was to have it be a great party that EVERYONE enjoyed. Their goal with the ceremony was to keep it intimate with just their immediate family and closest friends. Leigh had always dreamed of being married at the Gazebo at White Point Gardens and even though the weather that day was pretty wet early in the day, we got a break in the weather to make it happen for her that afternoon. Here she is looking stunning on the way to the ceremony…

The reception was held at Harborside East- a venue that is super unique in the architecture and perfect for a great party. Leigh chose a color palette of charcoal grey, coral, green and cream and it was really lovely in the venue and perfect for the start of spring!

Guests were greeted with… a cocktail of course!  – a “his” and “her” favorite!

The wedding cake brought together the organic look Leigh loves with the color palette she had chosen.

Leigh wanted to make sure the Existing HUGE Bar at the Harborside looked awesome so we added branches and orchids to each and every support pole at the bar- and it looked FABULOUS!


Outside a romantic and Comfy Lounge area was dressed up with some of our fantastic fabric draping with sheer coral fabric, crystal chandelier, and our Vintage seating area.



The venue has a HUGE Patio – Half of it is covered and Half is open air…while our original plan was to use both…. the rain of the day changed it up for us… so we kept it all under the existing covered portion and the tent we added. We added cool café lighting, some Tree’s and draping and VOILA…transformed into a comfy, romantic hang out that EVERYONE  enjoyed!


Leigh and Patrick hired the Travis Allison Band to make the tunes, Charleston Party Booth to have the playful fun of a photo booth, and for the finishing touch we had a Cigar Roller from the Cigar Row join us later in the evening….

What a great time was had by all- Including the Engaging Events team! We loved planning with Leigh and Pat and are so thrilled they had such a fabulous day!
