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!

There are event planners and then there is Cindy. I am always amazed at how beautiful and unique each of her events are. Her attention to detail and creative use of design make each event a masterpiece! Cindy has an incredible eye and the ability to turn even the most modest of venues into an engaging event. (she also takes care of the vendors and anything they might need to do their best job; which makes my day easier and more enjoyable.)

Here’s a quick peek at Laura and Jason’s Wedding from October 22, 2011 at the Historic Rice Mill.


Thanks Liz for sharing your blog post with us!

Lauren’s Bridesmaids wore beautiful smoky blue gowns and we adorned the chapel with Lauren’s favorite combination

of pinks, corals, yellows, cream and peach flowers.

As guests arrived at the Rice Mill they were greeted with hanging  lanterns in the tree’s as well as this charming placecard board.

We adorned it with little yellow daisy’s in a circle pattern mimicing the circle patterns from her invites from TGK Designs.

Lauren wanted a DIY project and created her own programs using her monogram and that circle pattern.

Elaine Mincey fashioned a fabulous cake using the wedding invitations circle and dots pattern as her inspiration.

Judy Johnston -our ever awe inspiring florist- created beautiful florals in these wonderful spring colors.

The Historic Rice Mill never disappoints—with its hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, and stunning harbor views, and amazing lighting-

a romantic beautiful setting is never too hard to come by.

Here you will see that great smoky blue color in the linens, a romantic and stunning headtable, and Engaging Events handy work creating a fun

and fabulous patio setting using green draping and our white asian lanterns for the ceiling.

Our many thanks to Lauren and Christopher for allowing us to be a part of their special day!
