Connecticut Wedding Planner in Martha Stewart Weddings

Martha Stewart Weddings asked industry insiders about advice on how to ease into wedding planning– and we were one of them! Head over to their website to read the article, 16 Industry Insiders’ Tricks for Easing Into Wedding Planning. Thank you to the team at Martha for asking us to participate!

Kate Spade inspired New Years Eve Party! -- via http://www.eventjubilee.com
Hey now! If you’ve been following us ladies long enough, you’ll know we are kate spade obsessed gals (it’s actually a job requirement to work at Jubilee Events & Jubilee Events: Caribbean). We wanted to share this tablescape shoot we designed for an industry event as a little inspiration for a New Years Eve dinner party you might be throwing this year. Gather your friends around the table, break out those kate spade plates you registered for (yaaaasss!) and create a fun, colorful and jubilant environment for 2016. You can take any element of this tablescape to make it your own, but here are some focal points we want you to consider!:
  • Black and White Contrasting Stripes: We love this linen we used, but if you don’t have a black and white linen, try making black and white striped menu cards or searching for some black and white striped napkins.
  • Bright Yellow Charger: One of our favorite details! This charger plate works because it’s a bright color and ties in the yellow from our centerpiece. Don’t have (or can’t find) yellow chargers? Pick up some inexpensive yellow bread plates and/or dessert plates and layer your dishes. You can also pick up some yellow paper at your local craft store and cut it into large circles, which will act like a placemat under each placesetting.
  • Confetti Crackers: These are so easy to make! Save those empty toilet paper rolls and head over to this website for a simple tutorial.
  • Sequin (obvi!): There are plenty of ways to get a little sparkle into your tablescape. Don’t have sequin chair covers (if you do– props!)? Use sequin ribbon on your chairs, around your napkin, or wrapped around your centerpieces.
Remember, you don’t need to completely replicate something to get the look. Be inspired by images and then get crafty to make it your own. Happy entertaining!

ct_connecticut_wedding_loading_dock_stamford_jubilee_events_0014

As one of our favorite publications, Bliss Celebrations Magazine, prepares to launch its 2015 issue this week, I thought we ought to blog our photoshoot for their 2014 cover! I know– how belated– right? Well the truth is, every time I sat down to blog all this gorgeousness I got overwhelmed by the vast number of beautiful images from Carla Ten Eyck and all the pretty details we put together with the best team. No, seriously. I tried and tried, but looking through these hundreds of pictures I couldn’t figure out where to start!

The concept for this photoshoot was from a white and gold t-shirt I bought at j.crew with pineapples on it. Then, I found myself flipping through InStyle Magazine and saw the most preciously branded cans of sangria. Don’t ask me how we managed to pull off such a fabulous photoshoot from those two sources of inspiration– but this will go down as one of my absolute favorite collaborations with a team of wedding creatives who pour every ounce of their energy into making something beautiful!

That is the best part about doing these editorial photoshoots– the creative team. I always find myself leaving, with my car bursting at the seems with props (which were neatly packed on the way there, but somehow, nothing seems to fit back the way you had it the first time!), feeling utterly fulfilled and down-right awestruck at the level of talent I’ve managed to find myself amongst. When I opened our company in 2007 I never thought for a million years our work would be featured, but even moreso, I never thought how a creative team such as this would bring such happiness into the soul of my career!

This shoot is filled with so much joyful prettiness, but there are some things I want to point out as my favorites. When I called Diane Guadett after showing her the inspiration and said, “what do you think of a floral table runner?”, she loved the idea. Never in my wildest dreams did I think she would bring the mother of all floral table runners, filed with hundreds of vibrantly colored flowers. When she walked in, I think Carla Ten Eyck almost had a brain aneurysm. It was so fantastically gorgeous and over the top, yet in these images, feels so natural and wondrous.

There is no denying how much our company loves working with Nichole Michel of Coral Pheasant. Every project we have the opportunity to work on with her, be it with clients or photoshoots, she always blows us away. Nichole thinks about every meticulous detail as it relates to what she’s going to produce– and has the ability to see beyond what the inspiration is and make it her own. For this photoshoot she literally took my breath away. And then she showed up with all these quirky bits and pieces from her vast collection of estate sale winnings (she has the stamina to find cool stuff everywhere– the side of the road, in the dumpster, at some tag sale in your neighborhood– I can never understand how she gets so lucky! I only find baby cribs with 5 year old spit-up and old thigh masters) like the bronze candelabras and that animal figurine, which I embarrassingly don’t know what type of animal it is. For this paper story, she was on hand to style every frame that Carla took, and spent hours on the floor perfectly tweaking each piece of paper until she was happy with it.

We invited Rick of Emily’s Catering to be part of this shoot not only because we love him to pieces, but because he is doing some wonderful things with our clients’ events. He was food styling his heart out and did a tremendous job! Tracking down mini bottles of Makers Mark (Carla’s second aneurysm of the day), mini bottles of St. Germain and Don Julio. I respect Rick because he is a chef first, and a caterer second, always wanting to wow and impress our clients on any event we recommend him for.

My fashion partner in crime, Beth Chapman, never disappoints. She can put together any kind of style, from boho to Jackie O and it works. As with me, this photoshoot was intrinsically Beth: lady-like bows, stripes, pearls, big hair buns and rose colored cheeks. There is no fashion stylist in the state of Connecticut who has the foresight, dedication, and genuine passion for what she does.

Our friends at Ryan Designs provided these fabulous bars (which they built originally for us!) with bronze sequin fronts, the custom sequin chandeliers and the gorgeous crystal chandeliers above Libby’s dessert display. To say we love the team at Ryan Designs is an understatement. They are the best in the business and add so much beauty to our events– and we couldn’t do what we do without them. Plus, they are the kindest most genuine people you will ever come across.

I hope you enjoy these gorgeous images from Carla Ten Eyck below. It goes without saying how much we love working with her! :)

As soon as Jasmine sent me images of Stella and Brian’s gorgeous May wedding at The Webb Barn in Wethersfield, Connecticut– I knew I was going to have a hard time condensing the images down for this blog post. Her images immediately transported me back to this fun, family-oriented, vibrant, jubilant, humorous, loving, and special day. Stella and Brian put so much thought into their wedding. I mean, they really thought about what they wanted this day to be. It wasn’t just beautiful to the eyes– it was beautiful to the heart.

They incorporated both their unique heritages in so many ways– and one of my favorite elements of this day was the “family tree” they were married alongside, which had pictures of those important marriages who came before them. After the ceremony, the took an impromptu polaroid of themselves with their guests seated as a backdrop, and added the image to an empty frame to complete the tree. It was so moving and unique!

Stella was one of the most beautiful brides we’ve ever had– perfectly herself in every way. I loved her gown, which had a hint of this blush / beige tone and of course, her gorgeous floral crown!

After guests enjoyed a personal and moving ceremony, they mingled and cocktailed on the patio outside the barn, enjoying lawn games, a glass (or two!) from the whiskey bar, and delicious nibbles from Emily’s Catering. As dinner began, they transitioned over to the lawn under a beautiful sunset with cafe lights above, long wooden tables nestled in the trees, and gold crowns for them to wear. Can I tell you how much I love these crowns? This crowd of family and friends were a jubilant bunch to begin with, but when then put them all on, they immediately shined brighter. I love the images of everyone toasting to Stella and Brian’s love with their fun crowns on!

The tablescapes were filled with gorgeous, colorful flowers in a variety of unique containers. There were books stacked with posy vases and little gold animal figurines (in looking at Jazzy’s images, some of these animals seem to have a life of their own and a personality to match!).

After dinner, they danced the night away inside the barn and headed off into the evening to continue the festivities. It was such a distinct pleasure to be part of this gorgeous and heartwarming wedding! Thank you to Jasmine of C10 Studios for these beautiful, beautiful images!
