We are so excited to have recently received a box of the new WellWed Maine & New Hampshire! WellWed does such a great job at presenting the best of the best wedding creatives and professionals in New England, and we are honored to be a part of the first Maine & New Hampshire edition.
Along side our good friend and amazing photographer Brea McDonald, Beautiful Days owner and creative director Kate Martin is highlighted as one of Maine’s finest! Kate offers a bit of advice and some overall background on Beautiful Days.
Beautiful Days created the flowers for a fantastic Portsmouth, New Hampshire wedding at Strawbery Banke.
And how great that a Beautiful Days inspiration shoot captured by Geneve Hoffman was highlighted as well! We dug through our treasure trove of special props and decor to create this romantic and rustic table inspiration and how gorgeous is the early fall light?!
A few other Beautiful Days details were included to inspire bride’s as they plan their rustic wedding celebration…a wedding bouquet (bottom left) and barn door draping ad paper lanterns from some of our past weddings.
Be sure to grab your copy to take in all the inspiration and real weddings….it is bursting with all kinds of details, decorations and dreamy days!

How exciting to see the wedding work of Beautiful Days featured in the new Maine. the magazine’s annual wedding issue!! A Laudholm Farm fall wedding stunner, a rustic chic celebration at Hidden Pond in Kennebunkport and a perfect mid summer wedding at Biddeford Pool….three different weddings but all so Maine!
Courtney and Jesse’s ‘s Laudholm Farm fall wedding in Wells, Maine was one of our all time favorites! Amazing vendors…David Murray, Aurora Provisions, Be Our Guest, The Flashdance DJ, Chairman of the Board, Hair That Moves, Just Bee , MacKenzie Brown, Motorland Vintage America…amazing couple and an amazing night! We had such a great time planning, and designing, and creating the flowers, decor and lighting for this very special celebration.
Kim and Michael’s wedding at the oh so chic and special Hidden Pond in Kennebunkport was a fabulous mix of infusing the bride’s urban vibe with the rustic setting of an end of the summer celebration. Helping to guide the vision of the day, provide planning and coordination support and especially creating the flowers was truly a joy…it also helps when it’s captured beautifully by Leigh at Nadra Photography!
And what a bonus to have Johnny and Sarah’s super sweet mid summer Biddeford Pool celebration highlighted! Such a lovely wedding and we were so pleased to provide day of coordination for the wedding day …a gorgeous seaside ceremony at a family home followed by a fun filled reception at the Abenakee Golf Club catered by the always fab Aurora Provisions and captured wonderfully by the lovely and super talented Meredith Perdue.
Many thanks to Maine. the magazine for featuring the fun we have and including Beautiful Days along side all the other fabulous vendors and talent that create amazing and special celebrations in our great state!
You can see our work featured in last years equally fab issue here . We’ve also recently been featured in Seacoast Weddings magazine, Grace Ormond and Country Living! Yup – we love what we do and are so pleased we get to share our work through these great publications. Keep in touch to see what we have in the works for 2013!

Grace Ormonde magazine has always been a great resource for all things fabulous, decadent and over the top in the wedding world! It is full of fantasy and glamour that inspires every bride. I was of course thrilled to be invited to to be a part of a Grace Ormond photo shoot at Hidden Pond in Kennebunkport last June! Hidden Pond is such gem and I have always been in love with the farm garden that I chose that as THE spot for our inspiration table!
I was inspired by the gorgeous linen from La Tavola and just let everything fall into place from there! The table is all at once bright, light, textured and earthy … I could sit at that table for hours for a mid summers alfresco celebration with some of my favorite people! What a fun afternoon especially when David Murray is taking the photos! Special thanks to Be Our Guest for the event rentals and La Tavola for the table linens, napkins, seat covers and pillows.
A boutonniere we created for the shoot was featured too….a sweet and lovely gathering of woodland anemone, green strawberries and geranium leaf…so perfect for the garden setting!
And what a bonus to see this beautiful Kennebunkort Resort Collection ad highlighting a wedding Beautiful Days was a part of! The event barn at Hidden Pond is at the top of my “very special venues” list! Gorgeous photo from Nadra Photography.
Many thanks to Grace Ormond for including us! We had a fantastic time and are delighted to have the opportunity to share some of our inspiration and what we love to do with your readers!
