THERE IS A DISTINCT BEAUT Y IN STORMY WEATHER, AND THE COLORS THAT EMERGE ARE NOT HING SHORT OF SPECTACULAR.
Rachael Sirois of Farrissey Floral Design drew inspiration from the vibrant whaling history of the city of New Bedford and the surrounding sea views from The New Bedford Whaling Museum to create the perfect setting for a wedding in the newlyopened Harbor View Gallery. Its private terrace was the ideal location for an intimate lounge area overlooking the harbor. Inside, a wall of floor-toceiling windows cast natural light on a solid wood table decorated with glass pedestals overflowing with white peonies and greenery which appeared as if they were blowing in the ocean breeze. Sirois described, â€œNo detail went unexplored. Our use of glass elements throughout the tablescape gave a nod to the local history and the glass museum around the corner. This styled wedding shoot was inspired not only by the colors of stormy seas, but by the rich culture of New Bedford and the timeless charm of the city and its heritage.â€?
