Did you see these lovely sweethearts on Carats and Cake today? We still can help but obsess over Kristina + PJ‘s  dreamy end-of-summer wedding at the romantic Wadsworth Mansion and we are so excited that you get to share in that love with us! Check it out!

At this time, we all may be getting a little tired of the cold weather. On this picture-perfect day, we could not have been happier with the snow covered grounds! At Gedney Farm, Jubilee Events and many other talented minds joined forces to create an opulent wintery setting, rich with texture–wood and fur being our top two choices. Mother Nature served the color white and we touched it up with more masculine tones of navy, burnt orange, charcoal, and silver. To bring in a more modern look, we laid the furs across our mirrored farm table and aluminum Alloy chairs that were just to die for!

We loved that this design can be extended to any type of event, whether it be a winter wedding, an upscale dinner party, or other social gathering. Often times we see weddings are tailored to a more elegant, glamorous, feminine feel and having a different look for inspiration and ideas is a great way to make your story unique and easily remembered! The dark barn walls were perfect for our vision and the warm glow of our marquee lighting and signs added a pop of fun and creativity to our warm, inviting dinner table, which was overflowing crisp branches bursting out of colorful, natural blooms!

This shoot wouldn’t have been what it was without the team we had–from the gorgeous sweater dress and velvet tux our bride and groom, respectively, wore, to the custom LOVE lighting display over and behind our table to our sweet horse, Mr. Eddison that couldn’t get enough of the camera. Our approach to this shoot was a common idea–to go in and push boundaries, expose more of our creativity, and have fun!

We all dream of those love stories that make us swoon… the prince charming or gorgeous girl that makes us blush and get those excited butterflies inside. When you look at that couple together, you can’t help but smile because they exude happiness and love. This is Katie and Aaron! They met on the Jersey Shore during a summer break and were connected from that day forward.

They are two incredible individuals who, together, make an unstoppable duo! You can’t help but love them and want to be in their presence because they make everyone around them feel so happy. This was the case for their families and friends, too. All fun, all wonderfully beautiful people. Plus, I may have to admit this Maid of Honor speech will go down in history as one of my top favorites–a teacher by day and a witty, meet-cute storybook writer by night with all the humor to grant guests a chance to learn more about the favorite couple!

We had the absolute pleasure of celebrating at the gorgeous Belle Mer alongside the sweet Erin McGinn, who we cannot thank enough for capturing this love story!! The tables were dressed in a crispy ivory with lush, green garlands extending the lengths of each and speckled with full peach and white blooms and gold accents, thanks to the out-of-this-world talented Greenlion Designs! To top it all off, we had the fantastic DJ Max Baun who kept every single person on their feet all night long. There was not one seat taken as far as the room would allow!

Huge thanks to Snippet & Ink for featuring this and for giving readers an inside view into Katie and Aaron’s inspiration! To our lovely couple: thank you for having us on board for such a completely fantastic day from start to finish! We hope that all of the excitement, hilarity, and genuine love that was present on your day is with you for 100 more years!

As our season winds down, I love looking back at the year we’ve had here at Jubilee Events to remember all the wonderful people we’ve worked with and the amazing places we’ve been. Since I’ve been using instagram pretty frequently, I thought it would be fun to take a journey through our year via the images from our instagram feed. Every few days, we’ll share a new month with all our readers and reveal some never before seen images from our spectacular events and travels! Be sure to follow me on instagram at @eventjubilee. We always highlight our featured company related images and travels under the hashtag #eventjubilee.

January was a fun month for us and it started with a spectacular party launching the luxury collective known as inWHITE— a group of amazing wedding experts on the shoreline. We danced the night away under a Sperry Tent with rockin’ tunes from Elan Artists. It was quite the party! You can see more images from these fabulous fete by visiting our blogpost highlighting the event.

After our party, I flew out to Salt Lake City to attend a blogging conference with my friend Kasey Conyers of Bliss Event Design. While there, we headed up the mountain to beautiful Park City and took in a few days at Sundance. What a dream! We had so much and I hope to go back again in 2013!

Bridal Market 2012 and Martha Stewarts 11th Annual Market Party

Last week I attended bridal market in New York with Beth Chapman and her lovely team at The White Dress by the shore and got a sneak peek into what new collections they will be carrying! We attended Martha Stewart Wedding’s 11th Annual Market Party at her offices in Chelsea and had an amazing time catching up with old and new industry friends. Stay tuned to The White Dress by the shore’s blog for their take on October market and to see what new gowns and accessories will be gracing their store. xo.

Let’s face it- we’re obsessed with Mad Men! We love to fawn over Don Draper and his suave demeanor. Or maybe you’re more of a Sterling fan. Either way, we can’t help but desire to be any of its bevy of characters for a day. At least, I know I would love to rummage through their closet and emerge as Christina Hendricks. We felt The Study at Yale in New Haven was the most befitting scene for this, with it’s modern mid-century feel and in the heart of the city. Thankfully we had the fun, creative, energetic group from Raw Photo Design on hand to capture all the glamour!

When it came down to the styling, Beth Chapman from The White Dress by the Shore couldn’t have brought in anything more captivating! She has always been enthralled with the lady-like fashion of the 1960s. Gloves, full skirts, pearls, bouffant hair styles- the whole thing! She just adores it! Couple this with the work of Jennie Fresa Makeup and Skin Care and the W Hair Salon of Madison and we were ready to dine on a three martini lunch. We had Tony Palmieri from Datura, A Modern Garden on hand to push the envelope with his floral decor. Be sure to check out the second table we designed with the glass centerpiece. I absolutely ADORED the look this created- so simple, but so gorgeous! The icing on the cakes were the deco art inspired treats from A Little Imagination Cakes– delicious!

Thank you to all who were a part of this this shoot and to Wedding Chicks for featuring this on their site this week!

I’m so excited to share with you two major features in the newest issue of Connecticut Bride! Our amazing June wedding of Danielle and John, which was a true collaboration of the entire Jubilee team, made the cover of their Spring / Summer 2011 issue. This is the FIRST time Connecticut Bride has ever put a real bride on the cover! A testimate to the beautiful spirits and love shared between Danielle and John, and the beautiful photography from our dear friend, Carla Ten Eyck. Danielle’s gorgeous beauty was by Jennie Fresa, with fashion styling by The White Dress by the Shore. And that gorgeous, GORGEOUS bouquet? Elisabeth from BLUSH! You can see a recap of her wedding in our galleries, or, pick up the magazine to read their story!

Equally as exciting is the fashion spread Connecticut Bride asked our team to do for their magazine. We had been DYING to do a midsummer night’s dream styled shoot and thought this would be the perfect outlet. It was a bit challenging in the late fall to pull off, but so easy on the beautiful property at Lord Thompson Manor. We designed a shoot in rich colors of pink, green and purple and brought the mid summer by way of gorgeous flowers, garlands, and details. You’ll have to buy the magazine to see the images, but in the meantime, here are some fun behind-the-scenes! For the 4-page fashion shoot in Connecticut Bride our team was comprised of the best of the best! These behind-the-scenes shots are courtesy of Carla, Jazzy and Alison!

I had the opportunity to co-design a tablescape with my colleages Tony and Cat of Datura: A Modern Garden this summer at the Ocean House for Grace Ormonde. We were sent an image of a beautiful water colored Elie Saab gown to use as inspiration– and this is what we came up with! We used a gorgeous mirrored dinning table with chargers made from floral in shades of blue, pink and green. Victoria Ghost Chairs were accentuated with white petal chair backs with rhinestone broaches. Posh Paperie created gorgeous triple mounted menu cards with a beautiful floral water color motif. Tony and Cat created this gorgeous orchid chandelier that we suspended above the table.

Pick up your latest Weddings Style New England Magazine to see the special shot they chose for inclusion in the magazine.
