We are so excited to see the newest special issue of Martha Stewart Weddings– which features the gorgeous destination wedding of our clients (and friends!) Vanessa and Lauren. The newest issue is now available on your iPad and in stores. It was such a pleasure to work with Vanessa and Lauren on their wedding. You may know Vanessa Kreckel from her amazing company, Two Paper Dolls. The paper goodies of this wedding were off the chain! I can’t wait to share with you more images from Carla Ten Eyck of this truly special day… but for now, please pick a copy of Martha Stewart Weddings to see more details of the day!

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 are so thrilled to have THREE features in the newest issue of Bliss Celebrations Guide! Thank you to the team at this wonderful publication for raising the bar on event inspiration– and be sure to check out our Real Wedding by Owner and Creative Director Candice Coppola and two Editorial Photoshoots by Diana Chouinard and Libby Basile. The best part is you can view the entire magazine online but we recommend buying a copy, too. Happy Thursday! x

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! :)
