Chuppah Design & Construction

Traditionally reserved for Jewish ceremonies, a chuppah is a four-posted canopy that symbolizes the home a couple will build together during their marriage.  Today, chuppahs can be seen at weddings of all types, from nondenominational to secular.  Chuppahs are a beautiful way to frame your ceremony and create a personal, sacred space for you and your partner to exchange vows.

Every chuppah begins with a sketch, often drawn from several inspirational sources.  “We work closely with our brides on creating the perfect ceremony backdrop, as the decor is setting the scene for such an important moment,” explains our Director of Events Elianna Phelps,  “Sometimes our brides bring us several inspiration images – none of which are their dream ceremony.,,

Wedding Advice from the BB Team: What We Would Do Differently

You spend months, maybe even years, planning your wedding day, and before you can take a sip of your champagne toast, it’s over! We know how quickly that day can go by, so the Bride and Blossom team got together to talk about what we wish we knew before our special days, and what we would do differently.

Elianna Phelps, Director of Events 

Our wedding was a more rustic/simple wedding on an island off the coast of Maine (July 21, 2012). We met in Maine, and lived there for about 5-6 years, so it was really meaningful for us — it was all about the views of Casco Bay as the backdrop for our ceremony and reception.
