Mass Audubon's Habitat in Belmont

We've done many weddings at The Habitat .  Why I've never before taken photos, I don't know, but we delivered a small wedding today and because we were very early, Marissa had time to look around and I took some photos.

The house and the adjacent gardens make up the wedding venue.  Beyond these, there are trails within a large and beautiful wooded area.

This is the entrance to the house.  The bride usually gets ready upstairs, and in the Winter months, it's where the ceremony and reception take place.

In the Summer, brides like to be married and celebrate outdoors.

The linens were on, so we were able to set the flowers in place.  Further out, the chairs are lined up for the ceremony.


The bride chose a pretty palette.

This owl is a gift to the Habitat.

The bride loved her bouquet!

The corsages.

This was an easy wedding and because it's slowed down at the shop, we felt relaxed and paid extra attention to details. I love the details.

Next wedding is on Cape Cod.  It's a big one.  We're working with wedding planner, Lo McShay who is kind of a dream planner for a florist.  She's super organized and if anyone loves details more than I do, it's Lo.

We're also having a yard sale next weekend. It's going to be one of three, I think.  There's a lot of cool stuff lying around in the basement that I need to weed out.  Stay tuned if you're local!!
