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!

I’m so excited to share with you that we’ve been featured in my hometown newspaper, The Waterbury Republican! Thanks to the fantastic reporter Carrie for coming out to our studio to interview me on our business. What a highlight for me to be featured in the Tuesday Women in Business section (after UCONN pulled out a national championship win!). I hope you enjoy the article. xo!
I’m so excited to share with you the wedding weekend of Megan and Mike– which started on a beautiful Friday evening at Penfield Pavilion in Fairfield, Connecticut! Megan and Mike were such a pleasure to work with– they had such wonderful personalities and style– and it showed with the first event of the weekend! Megan and I had worked together on her Lobster-themed, super preppy rehearsal dinner for several months. The Penfield Pavilion in Fairfield had just undergone a major renovation and I have to say, they did a fabulous job! The location is to die for right on Fairfield Beach and with the natural nautical touches, it was easy to bring in our favorite preppy nautical elements.
We had handsome blue seersucker linens on the dining tables with playful navy rope linens for cocktail hour overlooking the water. The tables were brightened by the gorgeous yellow and white floral design, created by Elisabeth from BLUSH Floral. We created little chalk board signs that stood inside each arrangement, naming each table after one of Megan and Mike’s favorite New England destinations!
The menu was your classic lobster bake so we had big red buckets on the tables for lobster shells (and cute instructions designed by Coral Pheasant on how to crack open those suckas!), bibs to catch any lobster dribbles (also designed by Coral Pheasant) and red lobster crackers which guests took home as a favor! And what fantastic caterer served up all that Lobster and Corn on the Cob? Outdoor Cookers, of course!
And to make it even THAT much better, we had our fav, Mr. Bruce Plotkin, on hand to document the entire weekend. Thank you Bruce for these wonderful images!
