The Waterlemon Squeeze
Who doesn't love a challenge!? Recently we had the opportunity to do some custom draping. There were a lot of variables involved: varying heights on the sections, fire retardant draping needed, a huge mirror that needed to be covered completely to protect against any reflection or glare that could affect the photos. We couldn't wait to get creative with this custom job.
When we setup the day before the wedding all eyes were on us as this was the piece that would be located behind the head table and would be the backdrop for the majority of the reception photos. After setup of the draping, uplighting, table runners, chair covers and sashes we were confident we had delivered on the clients expectations and hopefully exceeded them.
Eagerly anticipating feedback from our clients we finally received the feedback we were hoping for:
You have done such a great job, we have no words. It was amazing, when I walked in, that was the first thing I looked at. Man, I was very happy. I was wondering as you notice that day when I left you Vmail. You pulled it off we really thank you. People were asking who did it, you might get you some business, I'm sending them to you. Thank you again.

We had an opportunity to provide our white vinyl arbor and some custom draping for a wonderful wedding ceremony at the beautiful Crane Estates in Ipswich, MA. Crane Estates, named so for the family which donated the 2,100 acre historical reserve to the town, has an amazing rolling valley a mile long leading from the back entrance to the estate right to the wave break of the Atlantic Ocean.

On July 1st, we were able to be part of Jessica and Ryan's wedding at the W hotel in Boston. Our wireless LED uplights accentuated the draping on the 20+ foot walls in the main ballroom. Our cool, color changing LED cubes lined the dance floor and helped to set the mood during cocktail hour. Finally, elegantly placed pewter lanterns, filled with beautiful purple flowers, framed the ceremony aisle.
One of the highlights of the evening was getting a call from the Day Of Wedding Coordinator, Karen, just before the ceremony got under way. They wanted to move a couple of the uplights into the ceremony area to improve the lighting and ambiance. We ran up the stairs to the hotel as fast as we could and were able to move the uplights just seconds before the ceremony started...phew! The result was well worth the effort.
The bride and groom were beaming! It was an all around great evening. Thank you Jessica and Ryan for allowing us to be part of your special day!
A few days later we were so excited to hear from the bride and groom:
"I know I didn't have much time to speak with you on Sunday but everything that you and Renee did was wonderful. Everyone loved the uplighting and the cubes. They were so pretty and exactly what I was looking for.
You were so helpful and though my head was spinning at the time, you helping me to move vases and asking if there was anything that you could do, really stuck out to me that you care about how everything goes.
Thank you so much!"

What better way to ring in the new year than with friends?! The bride and groom, James and Jocelyn, couldn't have been happier on their big day and we were thrilled to be part of it. Throughout the night, the celebration carried over from the dance floor to the photo booth and back again. We tested the limitations of what the photo booth is capable of and in the process set, what we consider, a new world record of number of people in a photo booth (who actually made it in the photo) at one time - 17! We wish all the best to the new husband and wife on what is sure to be a great year and marriage!
Just before the holidays we had a fantastic opportunity to give back to those who give back to so many by taking part in the Milton Hospital Holiday Party. It's clear they have a fantastic group of people there, which was best demonstrated when Santa's little helpers showed up to help spread the cheer!
