After a few dreary days, this stunner is just what we needed to add a little sparkle to our day! Thank you to the incredible team over at Carats and Cake for sharing the beautiful wedding of Katie and Aaron! This duo and their unforgettable wedding party and family kicked off summer with their big day at Belle Mer in Newport, Rhode Island.

We are forever inspired by these photos that fill us with such warmth and we are excited to share them with you more!

When people ask about my family, I can’t help but excitedly express, “Oh, it’s a big family! Passionate, fun… the best really!” But, you know what? I walk away from each wedding with a little more family than I started off with. The Bozzutos and Marescas were no exception. They not only opened their amazing home, but hearts, to everyone. They are such a warm, tight knit group of people that planning their day felt like the best part of putting together a family holiday, making the day one of the most memorable weddings to grace a summer day. Not only did we have the best setting for Amanda and Joe’s wedding, but their day birthed the idea to host more weddings and events at their family farm, perfectly known as Heritage Homestead right here in quaint Northford. The views of Southern Connecticut are beautifully natural and create the perfect backdrop for any ceremony or tented reception and we cannot wait to get back there for more amazing events!

Their tent from Greenwich Tent Co. and the on site pavilion housed all of our guests that evening. Soft, ethereal draping and gold pendant chandeliers watched over all the toasts and cheers while guests gathered on our various lounges set up throughout both spaces. Instead of a sit down dinner, we opted for a more relaxed cocktail style menu, where the ever-amazing A Thyme to Cook provided spreads of fresh, savory offerings across thoughtfully designed farm tables and hand passed trays. Our bride, Amanda of A. Marie Designs, one of the head honchos behind Heritage Homestead, designed all of the paper and signage for her day. Starting with the textural cotton paper from Copper Willow Paper Studio, beautifully plated with gold calligraphy all the way to the hand detailed mirrors and glass panels, there was no detail left undone.

Amanda and Joe had been together from a young age and their love story still held every bit of admiration and eager anticipation for all of life’s adventures together and this was felt by everyone who knew them! Their smiles were infectious and brilliant. Their excitement overflowing. Better than Batman and Robin, a beach and a cocktail, chocolate and peanut butter, everyone who was in their presence knew this was a duo better than the rest. I was very lucky to work closely with the stunning Amanda and her mom, Kathy, the two most wonderful hearts and spirits you will ever meet. They were one of those families who were just so excited to be getting all of their family and friends together and celebrate. And boy did we! Those fireworks were a surprise to everyone!

Cheers to Amanda and Joe, their lovable, amazing families and the new addition on the way! Thank you for making us a part of your family – we can’t wait to see you all again and look forward to all your amazing property will produce! XO

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

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!

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!

There is nothing I love more than that perfect fall day–the crisp smell that the air holds, the vibrant colors of the trees, and the rich foods that make our mouth water.  Megan and Trey had the perfect fall day for a wedding!  Their day was dressed up in purples and ivory with rustic touches around every corner, guests dined on only the most sinfully favored foods and chocolates, and the chill was just enough to make you snuggle up next to the one you love.

We had the wonderful opportunity to work with Mary Beth, the fabulous mother of the bride, who was so sweet and warm, just like our amazing couple. It was truly a pleasure to witness such an day in the life of a beautiful family. Megan, Trey, and Mary Beth: thank you all so much for allowing us to be a part of this moment. We wish you all the best in the world and send all of our love your way!

Happy Thursday lovelies! Today we have a real treat for you on the blog and a wedding design that is close to my heart. You remember Megan & Mike’s Lobster Bake rehearsal dinner we posted last week, right? Well now it’s time for the wedding day! When Megan walked into my office and said she loved all things kate spade she was not kidding. What she also didn’t realize is that she was basically my fashion soul sister and she couldn’t have chosen a better designer and planner for her day. We seriously hit it off from the start (I would forward her KS secret sale coupon codes and she the same to me!) and planning her and Mike’s wedding was a joy.

We started out with a pink and blue color palette, mixed in fun patterns like chevron and stripes, and dropped a bow where necessary and never lost sight of glitter and confetti. Nichole at Coral Pheasant nailed her invitation– and to date– it is still one of my personal favorites. Megan and Mike wanted the day to be fun, bright and colorful and we achieved just that!

Some of my favorite details of the day are the napkin bows at each place setting, the floral arrangements wrapped in blue chevron fabric, the escort card posted that said “Lets get this party started!”, the gorgeous confections table with so many details and yumminess, the confetti dropped into glass vases for flowers, and Megan’s gorgeous gown.

I also loved the cake by Ana Paryzch— simple yet detailed with white confetti and gold trim. Look at this gorgeous sketch she provided below!

Thank you to Bruce Plotkin for the wonderful images below. Enjoy! xx

As I’m peeking outside my window, thinking about the snow that is headed our way, I’m reminded of one of my favorite weddings we have had the pleasure to be a part of: Caitlin and Matt’s. These two lovebirds were married just over a year ago at the end of 2012 on the Yale Campus. If you’ve never been to Yale, make a stop next time you are driving near New Haven and peek up at the gorgeous architecture that surrounds the streets. You’ll get lost in the complex detail and just about fall in love!

Caitlin and Matt planned their big day from overseas in Germany, where Matt is stationed and Caitlin attends school. Working with them was a dream for everyone! Caitlin had quite a fun vision and collaborated with her vendors to create a very personal wedding, where guests traveled in from all over the world. Caitlin started with a playful yet elegant color combination of mint, ivory, and gold and brought in vintage chess pieces for table numbers, a collection of mismatched mirrors depicting escort assignments, and close to 150 hand-folded (yes, you read hand-folded) personally addressed paper airplanes for place cards!

Shortly after getting their day started, Mother Nature made an appearance with the prettiest snowstorm I’ve seen to date. The ceremony was held on campus at the Dwight Chapel, so guests were able to make the short journey to dinner and dancing through the serene campus streets. The night was nothing short of energetic and filled with the highest spirits as guests danced until the early morning hours!

A big thank you to Justin & Mary for capturing every sweet detail!

Sweet doesn’t even begin to detail the elegant fete of Heather and Patrick! It was a day full of breathtaking sights – the details, the colors…the couple!!! They are an incredibly infectious couple with so much love for each other, despite the distance that was once between them. Heather, the fun, charming Southern girl was living in North Carolina while Patrick was at Yale in New Haven.

The pineapple, a Southern note that stood for hospitality, became the inspiration for their wedding. Guests, who came from all over, were welcomed by this motif that appeared on their stationary, dinner tables, and gorgeous calligraphed escort cards.?Needless to say, their bridal party and family were gorgeous people and were so excited and ready for this wedding. From the moment the day started, everyone knew they were in no short supply of surprises and treats that night!

Heather and Patrick were married at St. Mary’s Church in New Haven on the Yale Campus where Patrick attended. The amethyst, gold, and candle lit palette was swoon worthy and complimented by the Southern inspired creations by Blush Floral Design, which featured arrangements of plush purple Lilacs, Parrot Tulips, and other seasonal blooms. We fell in love! And what would this all look like without the photo mastermind, Carla Ten Eyck behind everything?!

A constant presence throughout the night was Heather’s desire to include something special for a friend or family member, a true nod to the person she is! Her dad had always joked when she was a child, saying that when she got married, her guests would be fed nothing but “moon pies and RC Cola.” Little did Dad know how right he really was as Heather had these especially for him. It was incredible to see how Heather and Patrick’s wedding was just as much about them as it was the rest of their guests in attendance – everyone was recognized, thanked, and celebrated just as much as the next!

Heather and Patrick – THANK YOU so much for allowing us to be a part of that warmth, excitement, and your infectiously sweet personalities! We have missed you and look forward to the next milestone we will be able to celebrate with you! A big thank you to our amazing A Team that were also a part of this momentous day! XO
