What’s Inspiring Me: Winter!

Get me to a beach and let’s not speak of this weather until it’s at least 65 degrees!” I love it, though! I find the snow to be so beautiful and serene. Last weekend, I had the pleasure of visiting Amee Farm and Riverside Farm in Pittsfield, Vermont, where I was surrounded by fresh powdered snow, foggy mountains…

Reception Venue Spotlight: Bank Street

I met with the owner of Bank Street, a hip and unique venue in the heart of Stamford. I love historic buildings that are converted into event spaces — their character and charm just lend a uniqueness that you can’t find elsewhere. That’s what I love about Bank Street! It is an old bank that now hosts an array of parties and fabulous gatherings. It is a cool fusion of old world architecture and swanky modern nightclub. There are a…

Ceremony & Reception Venue Spotlight: The Tomes-Higgins House

A few weeks back I had the real pleasure of meeting with Barbara, the property manager at the Tomes-Higgins House in Greenwich. The house and property are exquisite, truly.

The house sits on five and a half acres of “lush greenery” and was designed by the famous architect, Calvert Vaux, who co-designed Central Park. Pretty amazing, isn’t it? The interior of the house has all been restored…

Ceremony & Reception Venue Spotlight: The Old State House

  Photograph courtesy of Carla Ten Eyck I had the opportunity to tour the Old State House in Hartford this past Saturday afternoon.
