We knew when we met Sarah and Bryan that their wedding was going to be amazing. First off they were referred by a wonderful couple who had the good sense to hire Melissa to do their wedding years ago (Hi, Elayna and Jordan!!). Second they brought a vintage bike and the hugest balloon ever to their engagement session! They are two super fun and quirky people, kind of like us! But nothing could have prepared us for the unbelievable styling of their October wedding at The Red Lion Inn in Cohasset, MA. First of all, Marisa wore a black and white chevron shirt which was a heavily used pattern throughout the decor. She matched the wedding! As the girls were getting ready we were given the invitation, save-the-date cards, jewelry, shoes & headpiece. Every single item was individual and thoughtfully chosen or designed. The bridesmaids each wore their own choice of coral dress & turquoise jewelry. Sarah has an amazing eye. She has never known a Pinterest Fail, trust us. Even the first look was totally original. Remember the giant balloon from the engagement shoot? Now there were so many! Sarah and Brian met along a covered bride (take that, rain!) holding a huge bunch of balloons in front of their faces. At the count of three they let the balloons go to reveal themselves! Totally Sarah’s idea, totally awesome. Right after the reveal they enjoyed a couple of pints together. After some formal photos it was time to get married! The ceremony was personal and heartwarming and funny and very them. The staff at the Red Lion Inn seamlessly flipped the room while the cocktail hour commenced on the mezzanine. Once the reception began guests were treated to a feast for the eyes! The tables were accented with crisscrossed black and white fabric runners, glittery table numbers, and little hand painted plastic animals that we probably took to many pictures of! Their wedding also had a theme of “Best Day Ever” which was proudly displayed in big wooden letters on the balcony. Black and white silent movies were projected on an exposed rock wall over by the bar where guests could find mason jars full of embellished paper straws. Everywhere we looked we saw something special made by Sarah! Even the favors were homemade. Months earlier they started the process of making limoncello. They bottled it up and made little tags and voila! Favors you can drink! From the adorable cake with a fabric bunting to the handcrafted paper pinwheels, this wedding was undeniably DIY all the way. We would like to wish Sarah and Bryan the Best Life Ever!!!
