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,…

Incorporating A Theme Into Your Event

Is there anything more fun than a themed party? Well, maybe planning one! We recently had the opportunity to design a gem-themed bash for the latest issue of Bliss Celebrations. Picking a theme was the easy part—I spotted a bright, multi-colored Kate Spade statement necklace that was quite literally calling my name. From there I looked to the places guests would have the most interaction with at the party—from tangible things like food and paper items to bold visual installations…

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.…

Gem Themed Bat Mitzvah Inspiration Shoot at the ProvidenceG Building, Providence, RI

As you know, we absolutely adore weddings but we also love to plan special events and parties for younger clients. Bar and Bat Mitzvahs can be some of the most exciting events for teens and their guests, so we recently decided to take on the challenge of creating an absolutely, over-the-top, party that would make any teen girl swoon. Naturally, we looked to her most coveted place for inspiration—her jewelry box. We brought to life an event that is youthful,…

Sherbet Photoshoot for Southern New England Weddings Magazine at Lord Thompson Manor in Thompson, Connecticut

We are so excited to be featured in the newest issue of Southern New England Weddings: Destinations Magazine! For the design of this shoot I chose a “sherbet” inspired color story– soft colors in light pinks, mints, yellows, greens with a hint of gold. I love this color story for a spring-time wedding, but it can really translate into any season depending on where your wedding is! The Cottage House at Lord Thompson Manor made the perfect backdrop with it’s…

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…
