A Garden Wedding, The Crane Estate

Becca & Bear, July 12, The Crane Estate, Ipswich Ma

For me and my team, this wedding was particularly fun to be a part of because the Bride and Groom, Becca and Bear, and their families were so wonderful to work with, they had a great team of vendors, and they got married at one of my all time favorite places, The Crane Estate in Ipswich.

We were able to work with Becca and Bear (his real name is Benjamin, but isn’t Bear just the best nickname?) on many extra special touches that really made this wedding look amazing and feel very personal, which, in my opinion, is the best way for weddings to turn out.

We placed a custom birch chuppah on the Crane Estate’s Grand Allee and personalized it for Becca & Bear by adding mounds of roses, hydrangeas and some trailing Ivy in the soft pink, white and green colors that Becca loves.  Bear, his Father and his Grandfather all gave me their family Tallit which we used for the chuppah.  Becca gave me a silk hankerchief with her families initials embroidered on it, which I carefully attached around the handle of her bouquet.

The personal details didn’t stop with the ceremony! We wound soft color and florals all through the cocktail hour and reception.  I especially love the Bride and Groom’s dinner chairs; Becca asked me to decorate her and Bear’s chairs with swags of Ivy and white ribbon, which looked so festive and gardeny inside the dining room of the Estate.

The photos by Ned Jackson are just amazing, and truly do this beautiful wedding justice!

A little love note from Becca's mom...

Hi Meredith,

I've been meaning to write you to thank you for the fabulous flowers for Becca's wedding. The way you arranged the handkerchiefs around the handle of Becca's flowers was perfect!  The Chuppah flowers were incredible.  Our expectations were surpassed and you did all this with a broken foot the night before!  

It was a pleasure working with you!

Thank you,
