Real Maine Weddings 2018
Real Maine Weddings 2018 Wedding of The Year is one of the highlights of my career at The Maine Square. It was an honor to create the men's accessories for Jackie and Phil, who got married in beautiful Ogunquit, Maine, in October 2018.
I first met Jackie and Phil in the spring of 2018 at Blush Bridal and Formal. I had designed an array of bowtie, necktie, and pocket square samples while keeping in mind their color scheme.
I honestly was a bit nervous as I sat down to show them, hoping and praying that I had made at least one thing they liked! Sometimes I get very nervous when showing my art to people. You never know what people are going to think!
They ended up picking out the most beautiful blush color for their groomsmen bow ties and pocket squares. Phil, the groom, picked out the same blush color, but in a more traditional necktie style. They chose to have their groomsmen pocket squares embroidered with a tiny state of Maine on them and gave them as a keepsake gift. Phil's pocket square was a paisley pattern that included several coordinating colors.
The fun did not end with making these unique accessories. Real Maine Wedding's invited me among other vendors to attend the welcoming evening party in Ogunquit, Maine, on Friday before their wedding. It was lovely to meet the lovely couple again and many of the vendors who donated their time and services to Real Maine Weddings to make this beautiful event come together.
