Preppy Nautical Connecticut Wedding Inspiration

Nautical & Preppy wedding invitation suite in navy blue, red and yellow

Known fact: we always have a little prep in our step here at Jubilee Events! We set out to create some inspiration for a preppy, nautical Connecticut wedding. Cue all the stripes, dark navy, bold red and a sprinkle of glitter (because we love to glam up our nautical looks!). This photoshoot originally appeared in The Connecticut Bride a few moons ago, but we recently created more content for it, as it was suppose to be in our new book,…

Spring Orchard Wedding Inspiration at Hickory Hill Orchards

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…

An Opulent Winter Inspired Shoot at Gedney Farm

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.…

The Great Gatsby inspired Photoshoot at The Branford House in Groton, Connecticut

Want to hear a funny story? I still have my treasured copy of The Great Gatsby that I “borrowed” from my sophomore English class in high school. It sits nestled on my bookshelf at home and from time to time I take it out and read a few passages. I’ve thumbed through its pages dozens of times and, each time I re-read this treasured book of mine, I always discover something new. I love The Great Gatsby from an academic…

A Modern Black & White Wedding Photoshoot for WellWed Magazine

  Modern Black & White Wedding Photoshoot: Inspiration The inspiration for this modern black & white wedding  photoshoot all started after picking up a copy of the coffee table book from Alexander McQueen’s show at the MET, Savage Beauty. I was lucky enough to wander endlessly through this exhibition with my friend Nichole Michel of Coral Pheasant when it came into town, and even at that time, I was largely inspired by McQueen’s Autumn / Winter collection of crisply tailored,…

Costa Rica Wedding Photoshoot on Private Beach near Los Suenos Resort

A little time ago we found ourselves back in paradise– which is located in Costa Rica– in case you didn’t know. Our friends at Stay in Costa Rica asked us to come back down and do some more creative work and we jumped at the chance. Costa Rica has to be one of my favorite places on earth. It’s tropical, exotic, friendly, laid-back, and beautiful. The setting for what we’ve dubbed our colorful beach photoshoot was on a remote beach…

Graduation Photoshoot at Elizabeth Park in Hartford, Connecticut

When Beth from The White Dress by the Shore approached us all about doing this shoot, I went back to when I graduated-all the excitement, all the fun! I wanted to infuse every bit of that into this shoot and I wanted to bring in colors and details that made me feel this way. Now, a few years after I’ve graduated, I find myself looking forward to the next big party and wanted to design this so brides and their…
