New Year’s Eve should be a night of over-the-top fun. The night that you dress up in your very best party dress and pop open a bottle of the good stuff. This year I’ll be celebrating at home, but I’m still planning to go all out. Festive, champagne-inspired balloons are an easy way to spruce up your space, and gold sweets like these macarons are almost too decadent to eat! Gilded cookies are a small detail that can make your entire party feel straight out of The Great Gatsby. I also love incorporating a little bit of custom paper into the evening. These confetti toss cards are so worth investing in, even if it means there’s a little clean up after!

On an absolutely gorgeous afternoon in early October, Kathryn and Lev celebrated their love in front of their friends and family at the beautiful Wadsworth Mansion in Middletown, Connecticut. The day was perfect, trickling with sunlight and good spirit as guests were treated to a feast of food by Gourmet Galley, frothy floral design by BLUSH Floral Design Studio and a beautiful tent fit for cocktails and dancing.
I loved working with Kathryn; she was detail oriented, fun, kind and her sense of romantic style made me fall in love with their wedding. She’s the talented editor at Who’s Hungry Magazine, a lifestyle contributor at Marie Claire and in her spare time, she has a darling blog The Dramatic Pancake. A busy and talented woman!
Some of my favorite take aways from their wedding day was the beautiful ceremony written by Mary Coburn (our favorite celebrant), Kathryn’s gorgeous dress by Liancarlo from A Little Something White in Darien, Connecticut, the beautiful flowers and unique escort card table, brimming with big dinner plate sized dahlias, vintage crystal stands and bowls, and beautiful calligraphy by moira ink. Kathryn had some of the most beautiful and sweet bridesmaids, dressed in soft and subdued shades of pink, cream and grey. The men were pretty dapper too in their classic tuxedos and bow ties.
A huge thank you to the talents at Binary Flips for capturing the day so beautifully!
