No matter what you do for work, there are always days where you feel like you ran a marathon in the Olympics. It’s funny, slightly true, but we all know what I mean! Well, last Fall we had the pleasure of working with a bride who is competing in this year’s Olympics for our beloved US of A! Sara and her groom, Mike, are the best team and you can find me in their fan section any day of the week!
I loved these two!! I know I always say that, but planning with them was so fun and rewarding! I always noticed that goofy smile on my face as I watched them explore each decision and develop what would be best for their day. They left you feeling inspirited and just ready to celebrate because they were! Plus, are they not two of the most beautiful people you’ve ever seen?
Now, if you’ve ever spent time in New England in the fall, then you have some understanding on what is so special about it! The warm glow of the sun wrapped up by the cool breeze once it sets. The warm colors found in Mother Nature, in food, and in a cozy pashmina. Plus, fall weddings are my favorite!
Sara and Mike’s design was rich with the colors of fall. Champagne and marsala with hints of a more playful blush dressed their tables and florals and brought such a sophistication to the Eolia Mansion. Earthy garlands from Just For You Floral Design spilled over the sides of their dinner tables that were speckled with candlelight for a romantic touch. And nothing beats that perfectly natural garden at the house! A Thyme to Cook was on site with the freshest, most delectable menu, complete with a hot rocks station. Don’t know what is? Well, you’ll want to! Check out some of our fav photos from Ms. Carla Ten Eyck and a special video from our friends at Vantage Point Films!
Sara and Mike: we miss you two so very much and we hope your days are filled with fun, adventure, excitement, and all the happiness in the world! Sara, we are rooting for you and know you will fiercely demolish any challenge in the Olympics! Good luck! XO
