Featured Wedding - Exclusive Locale!

This terrific couple pulled out all the stops for their September wedding. From the cushy comfortable lounge to the amazingly appointed dinner area - this event was over-the-top!
Elegant floored tents graced the sweeping lawns of the Sisters of Saint Dorothy retreat - atop a peninsula overlooking Narragansett Bay in Bristol RI. What a spot!!!

Our massive iron chandeliers held court over the festivities - and we transformed the spaces with constantly changing light! From shades of Plum and Merlot to a romantic Amber glow for dinner and clubby moving lights foe intense dance sets -lighting was the finishing touch that made this event unforgettable!

Grace Ormonde's Book Launch Bash:

"BEING IN LOVE NEVER GOESW OUT OF STYLE."

It's not hard to create a magical setting at the alreadybeautiful Chanler at the Cliff Walk in Newport, RI however, John Orton for Stoneblossom Floral & Event Design along with Ormonde Productions were able to transform the grounds even more with our swanky outdoor lounge!

This classic and sophisticated furniture, provided by John Orton, paired with this whimsical sheer fabric structure, overlooking the Newport shoreline provided guests with the idealrelaxing atmosphere in which to mingle and simply enjoy the beautiful summer evening.

Grace Ormonde was able to take in some of the tranquil Newport scenery, while also taking the time to sign some copies of her new coffee table wedding book, "being in love never goes out ofstyle," for guests.

When the sun set the Outdoor Lounge was even more breathtaking than before! The uplighting in the tent created an aura remnicent of a moonlight glow, and a very soothing feel.

Inspired Peacock Theme at Astor's Beechwood!

We had such fun working with Rudy and Meaghan - taking their vision of a peacock theme and running with it. Our paisley projections on the terrace walls creates a HOT backdrop for this cool photo. It's so great when the Bride and Groom aren't afraid of using rich, strong color.

Our lighting kicks the party into high gear. We used architectural uplighting to enhance the ballroom - and the terrace literally "glowed" with saturated color!  Our sheer drapes added softness and romance. It was amazing after the Newport sunset over the Bay.

The peacock theme continued in the tented lounge where guests enjoyed cigars and dessert. Our enhancement of the multicolored ceiling with light - and spotlighting of the focal floral design - created such great ambience it was tough to tear guests away at the stroke of midnight!

Jaclyn Cashman & Trevor Childs Wedding

This couple left nothing out when it came to their beautiful Cape Cod wedding! From the festive cocktail hour on the croquet lawn to the lavish reception with spirited swing dancers and sweet candy to the extraordinary fireworks display after the reception all the way through to the upbeat after party in the luxurious Chatham Bars Inn Monomoy Room, this wedding did not dissapoint!

The reception was held at the remarkable Chatham Bars Inn in Chatham, MA. It was such an ideal spot for a true Cape Cod wedding with a lovely view of the ocean and a tranquil summer breeze.

Under the spectacular tent made of handmade sailcloth guests danced up a storm and a photobooth provided hilarious snapshots documenting the unforgettable day.

Gorgeous floral tabletop arrangements and our elegant vintage styled crystal chandeliers really added a special romantic feel to the reception. Once the sun set our ambient light wash on the tent canopy really illuminated the space and set everything a glow. 

After the reception came the fireworks and then everyone followed Jaclyn and Trevor up the front steps and through the Chatham Bars Inn lobby to the after-party where there were delicious late night snacks, a DJ, and a light show pulsing to the DJ's music like a nightclub, transformed with our specialty lighting.

Jill & Jeff at The Glen Manor House

The Glen Manor House in Portsmouth RI is an elegant spot for a wedding! It is styled after the Petit Trianon at Versailles and has a wonderful French Country feel inside and out. There are lovely terraces and formal gardens lovingly cared for. The ceremony is often held outside with a commanding view of the Sakonnet River.

Adding light and lounge furnishings to the terrace is a popular request. It gives guests a cozy spot to relax and catch their breath between dance sets!

Julie and John, South Dartmouth, MA

We love Julie and John! Their Cape Cod wedding was absolutely spectacular.

Ormonde Productions collaborated with Kelli O'Brien from Exquisite Events to create a sexy lounge area in their massive century tent.

We projected dreamy cloud patterns on the comfy lounge furniture. Our soft white drapes created an intimate space.

The colorful dinner area was swagged with sheer pink fabric, creating a magical enviroment. 

The textured star pattern that was projected onto the floor was great! Our "intelligent lighting" provided constantly changing color and movement.

The florals were to die for! Our pin spotting really made the designs pop! This is a dedicated beam of light focused on each centerpiece.

The incredible collaboration of all the professionals below really made this event world class.
