Weddings

It is not lost on us how privileged we are to be a part of so many couples’ and families’ personal history. We have earned the opportunity to witness incredible examples of love, family, and celebration. It is so bittersweet to see a wedding day draw to a close – we love to see the entire planning and design process come to life and we absolutely adore seeing the faces of our beloved clients when they walk into their space, but saying goodbye is the worst! Our couples become our friends… a part of our own little family.

Sumiko and Max made this beyond easy. They are so kind, beautiful, and such selfless people. They possess the most infectious personalities that make you want to hang out and get to know them. They’re fun and they always have a way of making everyone around them grin from ear to ear. Their families highlighted these traits and were the most wonderful addition to this planning process!

Mirroring their personalities, Sumiko and Max’s design was filled with bright, colorful bursts of pink and blush speckled with soft ivory and classic gold. Priam Vineyard was the perfect backdrop, hugging us in rows and rows of lush green vines. Their beautiful floral arch was constructed by a dear friend, but we still cannot get over those gorgeous dahlias by Blush Floral Design! They, without exaggeration, exceeded the size of our heads. Our tables were dressed with the same breathtaking florals in an array of vintage gold vessels on top of the most playfully perfect linens to emulate an elegant garden party.

The fun and energy was never in short supply! Max may have stolen the show with his dance moves, as you can see, and rightfully so. Nevertheless, we will never forget this day and we will never forget this couple. Sumiko and Max, thank you for allowing us to take part in such a momental day. Big hugs to you and we wish you all the happiness and love you gave all of us that day! XO

Taylor and Mike… the type of people you want to just hug and squeeze because they make you laugh and smile so hard your cheeks hurt. This couple’s infectious grins and sweet personalities, so eminent in their love for one another. Their perfect laughs that warmed your heart, even if you didn’t know why you were laughing yet you couldn’t help but join in. The undying support and compassion for one another – always a gleam in their eye as they reached a milestone of planning. Their family and friends were just the same! I swear, we all left this wedding feeling like we gained about 150 new friends. We were surrounded by immeasurable love and celebration, the kind that makes you walk away saying, “Now that was a helluva day!”

Taylor was like a planning and design soul sister. She knew what she wanted and we collaborated to bring to life her story and ideas. Of course, we had the best crew and the most fun time planning their day! From the homemade limoncello (which was every bit as fantastic as it sounds) right down to the resplendent florals from Hana Floral Design and Taylor’s incredibly talented cousin Natalie from Hello Darling. No area went uncovered and there was so much pretty everywhere you looked. Every guest was ooh-ing and aah-ing until the lights were turned off! It was picture perfect in every way, outstandingly captured by our dream team duo from Ali and Julie – just tell us how happy your eyes are after looking through.

When I think of love, beauty, and celebration, this is the day I think of. Taylor and Mike, we wish you two nothing but all of the magic you shared with us at your wedding! Thank you for allowing us to be a part of it and cheers to you and the memories you’ll make! XO!

It’s not every day you decide to host a wedding in your own backyard, but when you do, you can believe it’s a day we all come to cherish and remember. What better place to celebrate a day in your family’s history than in your own home? The personal details and signature design become so significant to seeing your day unfold. This romantic wedding was no exception in our books!

Set on the family’s private estate, our couple wanted a wedding design the complimented their surroundings.We kept the color story soft and simple: blush, green, and white and infused an organic, romantic style with modern elements. The floral design of this wedding brought about that natural, rustic style with the long, lush garlands with blush and ivory blooms tucked throughout. Our stunning clear top tent, lighting and lounge furniture was a nod to a more clean and modern design.

Our tent was dressed with sparkling crystal chandeliers and clean white draping set in between rows of full bloom hydrangea bushes. The chandeliers and candlelight were enhanced by our white dance floor, creating such a soft, natural glow. The tables were textured with rustic pieces reminiscent of our outdoor ceremony, set in front of the family’s pond, hugged around their favorite Oak tree, which became a personal motif we used in stationery details throughout the weekend.

Trying to merge these two styles of rustic and modern can be challenging, but our all-star creative team was able to pull of the delicate balance of the two. We always enjoy working with the wonderfully creative minds of our industry and each vendor who was a part of this magnificent wedding listened to what the couple wanted and made magic to bring their vision to life!

What do weddings mean to us? Well, many things! They’re romantic and so full of love. They’re exciting, bringing together so many details and pieces to a couple’s story. They’re the most momentous of occasions! Don’t you feel a bit giddy when you think about it?

Deeper than that, they are intimate and personal. They’re a celebration of a history, both of the couple and of two families coming together. Family is the most important part of a wedding and we are so privileged to see and learn about each of our couples and where they came from. Amanda and Justin’s family was no exception to this! From the very beginning, Amanda was smiling and bursting with eagerness to plan her and Justin’s special day.

The story of this family is a perfect example of how not everything may go exactly as you pictured it, yet this becomes a blessing in disguise. During planning, Amanda’s mother, who had been in remission, discovered during a routine check up that her cancer had aggressively returned. Much of her time was spent in the ICU and planning for future chemotherapy treatments and stem cell transplants, and Amanda and Justin were right there besides her the whole way. With this on their plate, this amazing family continued to plan a remarkable event with the biggest smiles on their face and excitement for the next steps. Together, they were all able to celebrate a stunning September wedding day, surrounded by immeasurable love. I admire them and I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t say the same thing!

Even more exceptional to their story was holding their wedding at their own private home, which was perfectly rustic, relaxed, and filled to the brim with colorful wildflowers. Plus, that view!! There was so much beauty and peace surrounding us and it couldn’t have been more perfect if we had rewritten history. Thank you so much to Meg from Rodeo + Co. Photography for capturing every last bit!

We had the perfect farm table overflowing with natural lush greens with blush and ivory blooms mixed with tall candlesticks creating a soft, romantic glow. Touches of gold and the cutest little hands of our ring bearers filled the rest of the table, which sat underneath simple garden lights and overlooked the lake as the sun set. Amanda and Justin’s three pups ensured each guest was properly escorted down the aisle and every bit of food had been savored. Also, check out that amazing cake, made by none other than Mom herself!

We see intimacy every day in various forms, and this was no exception! Amanda, Justin, and family: I cannot thank you all enough for allowing me to be a part of something so meaningful, so memorable, and so special to your legacy. I walked away so grateful to meet these amazing folks!

Here at Jubilee Events, we love all things wedding and events! Thank goodness we do what we do! Trust us, every spool of ribbon, delicate peony, luxurious Dupionique linen, romantically lit chandelier, and each spec of glitter on our fingers–and sometimes face–thrills us. The best part about each detail is what that means to our couple and their story. The way they are infused into their wedding day and how it is all brought to life.

When I met Rachel and Matthew, they were unsure as to which direction their wedding would process in, but shortly after we started, they said, “Why not get married on our favorite holiday?!” which was, of course, Halloween! Let me tell you how excited I was to collaborate on their wedding when I heard this! It was adventurous and most importantly, it was them!! The scene was set and all we had to do was have fun.

We took inspiration from an old haunted house–one that, in it’s prime, hosted lavish parties every weekend. It had to in order to host this amazing group! There is something truly beautiful in the story held in a forgotten home. Our tables were dressed in a vintage lace and topped with a collection of ghoulish hands, bloodied candles, decayed flowers, and insects crawling all over. Our girl Jane from Just For You Floral Design helped bring this to life…if you will.

The best part: our groom surprised his beautiful wife with the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus. They put on an incredible performance to kick off dancing for the night! Their love for this holiday was in no short supply and it was a huge treat for us to design such an extraordinarily unique wedding.

A big thank you to Robert and Kathleen for capturing all of this extraordinary fun and to Epic Film Makers for allowing us to relive it!

Rachel and Matthew–a very happy first anniversary and a very Happy Halloween to you both (and Grant!!)! We wish you years and years of fun and imagination and all the love in the world that we saw present on your night! Thank you for giving us the gift to take part in such an exceptional day. XO!

Last fall we had the great pleasure of meeting Kate Kudish, the events coordinator for Hickory Hill Orchards in Cheshire, CT. Her family owned and operated fruit orchard had recently opened itself up to couples looking to marry in Connecticut and we were invited to tour the stunning, 33-acres of property. Needless to say, we were inspired by the natural beauty of the orchard and teamed up with Kate, along with several of our favorite vendors, to design a styled shoot around the spring blooms that came to life each May.

We let nature be our guide when selecting a color palette—bold pinks and bright whites with a hint of green. We also added some rich berry tones and lipstick shades to liven it up. We wanted to keep the look fresh and polished, but still feel very natural and organic.

While our bride and groom shared a private and romantic first look in between the rows of budding peach trees, flower girls clad in fluffy tutus were ready to welcome guests to the main event. Dinner was set just beyond the orchard so diners could take in the whole view of the flowering trees. Octavia and Brown provided the most unique vintage rentals, which included bold red folding chairs that popped against the pink trees and the most plush, pink settee. Mismatched vintage china from Borrowed, and the prettiest pink blooms from Blush Floral Design garnisheed the tabletop. Our paper details from Patti Murphy Designs brought in a beautiful, laid back watercolor print that helped tie everything together. We carried these detail throughout our entire story—including the sweetest custom sleeves for Hickory Hill’s signature cider doughnut treat!

Of course, no styled shoot would be complete without cake, and for that we had our good friend Maria Bruscino Sanchez of Sweet Maria’s on hand with her famous mouth-watering treats, including a three-tiered naked chocolate cake with coffee buttercream frosting!

Our models were well taken care of by Dana Bartone and Company and Simply Gorgeous by Erin. Chelsea of http://www.shopeverthine.com/ took care of dressing the ladies, while Valentino Tailors outfitted our groom in the most lux marsala suit coat that fit our color story perfectly!

We’re lucky to have had the amazing Anaise Prince there to capture it all! Scroll down to see more of her images from this beautiful shoot!

From Event Coordinator, Kate Kudish: “Our venue prides itself on the rustic yet well-maintained landscape architecture and the charming farm aesthetic, including stone walls, natural wood fencing, and the classic American red barn and Ford tractor. With the option to bring in the vendors of your choice, you may design your ideal event around the ethereal natural beauty of 35 acres of rolling pastures, weeping willow trees and a heart-shaped pond.”

This wedding…! Tess, Jon, and their families are some of the best people you will ever meet! Their personalities were so wonderfully infectious, warm, and a pleasure to be around. They were the best people to work with and their guests mirrored their awesomeness. They lined up some of the best vendors across New England and, boy, did this become a night that will always be remembered!

From the moment Tess and Jon got engaged, they knew they wanted an outdoor wedding, which took place on a day full of sunshine and crisp pre-autumn air. Inspired by Tess’s signature earthy tones, the tables were lined with tall and plush blooms in natural greens, burlap, and plum purple spilling over candelabras and pouring out of iron lanterns from Blush Floral Designs. The rustic, wooden farm tables were dressed in romantic candlelight with the best, freshest fare from our favorites over at A Thyme to Cook. Many months later and guests are still raving about every detail of the day!

One of our favorite memories of the day was early on in the evening when we all witnessed the most beautiful sunset we have ever seen! The skies turned pink and orange and for just a brief moment, everyone took a minute to pause and take it all in. The night ended with a sparkler send off and, as Tess reminisces, they just make you feel like a kid again, and they also make for a really dreamy, almost fairytale-like moment running through them as husband and wife among all of their loved ones.

Tess and Jon, to you and your families, thank you for giving us the utmost pleasure of being a part of such a spectacular and memorable wedding and, more importantly, celebrating with an amazing group of people! We wish you all the best and a lifetime of happiness and beautiful sunsets. XO!

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! :)

Have you ever looked through a post online, a collection of photos, a story and caught yourself grinning from ear to ear? Giddily smiling because you are so swept up in the wonderful memory of an event? That’s how I feel looking at all of these images from Rachel and Sebastian’s dreamy October wedding on the shoreline in Old Saybrook. How can you not love looking at this beautiful couple?!

Working with them and their family was a dream! There was so much love, bliss, and joy surrounding them throughout the entire planning process and it surrounded all of their friends and family on the wedding day. We couldn’t have imagined a sweeter day if we had tried!

From their first look to the last dance, each loving moment was captured by the incredible Bryce Covey. Rachel wanted lots of blush with touches of ivory, gold, and elegance. Sebastian wanted everything Rachel wanted–he couldn’t stop telling us how excited he was to be marrying his best friend! Our tables were embraced in blush pink and adorned with a medley of tall and petite blooms in ivory, green, and touches of pink from the always fabulous Elisabeth at Blush Floral Design. Even the chairs were dripping in romantic ruffles down to the floor.

After dinner, guests filled the dance floor, where our girl, DJ Eko kept guests twirling and celebrating until the end of the night!

It was truly a pleasure to be a part of Rachel and Sebastian’s wedding, and we cannot thank you all enough for the wonderful memories from such a happy day! We wish you nothing but many more happy, loving celebrations for all the years to come!
