It is always so much fun to see Pink Orchid Weddings in bridal magazines. A few days ago, I picked up the latest Spring/Summer 2011 issue of Brides Boston Magazine, and along with an article where I contributed some advice for welcome bags, there were some fun surprises! As I turned the pages, I noticed some very familiar photos. Some of my favorite Boston vendors were featured in the magazine as well, and there were photos and details from a couple of weddings that I coordinated last year as part of the articles.
The first was a gorgeous bouquet of cymbidium orchids created by John LaRoche for blueGuava, and the lovely photo was taken by Joyelle West Photography. This was one of seven bridesmaids bouquets that John created for Mark and Rhonda's stunning wedding last year.
The next was an article on how four different photographers captured the Boston Public Library. A beautiful photo from Am and Ken's wedding was featured in the article, taken by Lisa Rigby Photography.
Then I found the article about Welcome Bags for Out-of-Town Guests, where I was one of six local wedding planners who contributed some ideas on what you could add. My favorite of the list is definitely under the category of "something sweet" where I mentioned S'mores from Sweet Lydias. Her treats look amazing, and more importantly, taste delicious!
This issue of Brides Boston is on newsstands now. It's filled with a lot of advice and information on local vendors. It was fun working with the editors on the article, and I hope to contribute to many more issues!
