A Jubilee Event: Blaine & Chris’ Madison Beach Hotel Wedding in Madison, Connecticut

You know those couples who are so sweet, fun, and hysterical that you just want to hug them over and over again to thank them for giving you the chance to work together? Blaine and Chris! The second they walked into our studio, we knew their wedding would be one we would remember forever. Every part of planning their shoreline bash was a small hint towards the adventure we experienced that day! Even without the tornadoes that touched down that September day, it was still a night to remember.

The gorgeous ceremony sat beachside that evening, with the waves crashing on the sand leading up to the rose petal-lined aisle.  The archway, housing our couple and their closest  loved ones was a picture of perfection, draped in roses and plush hydrangea, thanks to the oh-so talented Elisabeth of Blush Floral Design! Dinner and dancing was held in the newly renovated Madison Beach Hotel, which boasts floor to ceiling windows and French doors overlooking the water. Our design had a Great Gatsby flair to it with vintage, glam touches spotted with coral, gold, and a hint of navy. Add Blaine’s contagious smile and the room lit up! 

Blaine and Chris, thank you for including us in such a momentous day! We wish you all the best and send all of our love! XO

A Jubilee Event: Megan & Mike’s Preppy Kate Spade Wedding at The Inn at Longshore in Westport, Connecticut

Happy Thursday lovelies! Today we have a real treat for you on the blog and a wedding design that is close to my heart. You remember Megan & Mike’s Lobster Bake rehearsal dinner we posted last week, right? Well now it’s time for the wedding day! When Megan walked into my office and said she loved all things kate spade she was not kidding. What she also didn’t realize is that she was basically my fashion soul sister and she couldn’t have chosen a better designer and planner for her day. We seriously hit it off from the start (I would forward her KS secret sale coupon codes and she the same to me!) and planning her and Mike’s wedding was a joy.

We started out with a pink and blue color palette, mixed in fun patterns like chevron and stripes, and dropped a bow where necessary and never lost sight of glitter and confetti. Nichole at Coral Pheasant nailed her invitation– and to date– it is still one of my personal favorites. Megan and Mike wanted the day to be fun, bright and colorful and we achieved just that!

Some of my favorite details of the day are the napkin bows at each place setting, the floral arrangements wrapped in blue chevron fabric, the escort card posted that said “Lets get this party started!”, the gorgeous confections table with so many details and yumminess, the confetti dropped into glass vases for flowers, and Megan’s gorgeous gown.

I also loved the cake by Ana Paryzch– simple yet detailed with white confetti and gold trim. Look at this gorgeous sketch she provided below!
