Speaking of Invitations...

Brian Dunning - Thursday, April 26, 2018

Here are some of the latest trends that we are seeing in invitations. Essentially, the style of your invitation sets the tone for your wedding.

Try dreamy Watercolor borders giving a fresh modern look, Landscapes offering hand drawn watercolor pics of your wedding location, Ombre offers a super modern different look with shades of your color palate and the always popular Monogram using a stylized combination of your names...or keep it simple and punch it up with gorgeous lined envelopes with a pattern that represents the two of you.


Invitation Language

Brian Dunning - Thursday, April 26, 2018

Having your ceremony at "I.H."? Your invitation should state the time that the ceremony begins. For example, if your wedding is a Saturday Night (6:30PM to Midnight), your invitation should read "Ceremony in the Gardens at 6:30PM at Independence Harbor". Just as at a church, your guests will arrive 15 or 20 minutes ahead of time, giving ample time to be seated, and for the Ceremony to begin on time. We are always available to answer any questions you may have.

It was a long wait for Spring, but it is finally here!The wedding season is in full swing and our spring grounds are gorgeous...spectacular daffodills, fragrant hyacinths and early tulips welcome all guests. The flowering trees are poised to bloom, and we are fully prepared for your outdoor ceremony in our gardens. The deck is buzzing with wedding guests as I write this blog, enjoying cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on this sunny Saturday afternoon. April is a great month for an Independence Harbor Wedding....and for a bonus....April weddings offer discounted pricing! 

Stanley Cup...Cake?

Brian Dunning - Wednesday, April 25, 2018
Nicole and Chris were married in March at Independence Harbor. Both are huge Bruins fans and got engaged at the Winter Classic a couple years ago. It was only natural they would incorporate their beloved Bruins into their wedding. A black and gold color scheme and lots of fun touches including a Bruins game shirt for the guests to sign rather than the traditional guest book, and am amazing "Stanley Cup" wedding cake prepared by "A Piece of Cake" of Warwick, R.I.....so realistic you you would think it to be the real thing! Nicole was gorgeous in her white gown which hid her Bruins socks and sneakers. Congratulations Nicole and Chris.
