BESWOON Beaches & Bows
September 22nd, 2017 by BESWOON
As a farewell to Summer, we take a look into the inspiration, concept design and amazing team featured in the Beaches & Bows room at BESWOON ‘17…
Here in Maine we celebrate the sea and its beautiful, calming presence every day. Destination and local weddings alike utilize the stunning, expansive water views across the state. Whether it’s reflected in the decor, the colors, or the food – we’re constantly finding ways to incorporate the bounties of the ocean.
The concept for the 2017 BESWOON featured room theme of “Beaches & Bows” was to showcase a romantic tale – where barefoot nuptials contrasted with luxe details. We wanted the event planner and team to create a space that took the typical “nautical” wedding (the pretty yet over-done rope decor, blue striped linens, lanterns, lobster traps, oars) and modernized it. That’s exactly what Kristen from Beehive Creative Events and the talented team of featured vendors did!
Drawing inspiration from her southern roots and personal love for bows, Kristen wanted to create a design that felt like home, influenced by the classic style of the beach towns in the southeast. A floral hanging bow, bed swing, raw oyster bar, pairing of creative prints and patterns allowed guests to transition into either an indoor or outdoor setting and transcend the classical beach inspired wedding.
The Beaches & Bows room was led by Kristen Winters, owner of Beehive Creative Events. The Beaches & Bows team included: Glow (Hair & Makeup Design), Nadra Photography (Photos), Sachin & Babi (Bridal Gown), The Event Light Pros (Lighting Design), The Groomsman Suit (Men’s Attire), The White Apron (Catering), The Wicked Sweet Sugar Boutique (Dessert), Three Little Words (Invitation and Paper Design), Wallace Events (Rentals), Yellow Twist Floral Design (Floral Design).
