One of my favorite themes to design…Rustic Elegance during my favorite time of year…Fall! There are so many natural elements to choose from and I love bringing “the outdoors in” by using leaves, pumpkins, birch, branches, etc etc And it all paired so nicely with the elegance of New Haven Lawn Club!!!
To top it off Diana( and Justin!) were so fun to plan with….she trusted me to take her vision and run with it and I did! Even scouring the entire state for mini white pumpkins well after their season…and found them! Also got to use my awesome dremel and wood burner kits for some great detail and personalization!
I was crying when I received their thank you card……..Love them!
This wedding was so fab that it got featured in a prestigious wedding blog, Rustic Chic Weddings!!! Click the link to see the feature. We were all very excited to find this out as this wedding was made for that site!!!
It couldn’t have happened without the gal behind the lens….Sarah from Afterglow Photos….she knows how to work that camera!!!
Here are some of my favorite images of the day……

Are you ready for a 1920′s….Safari….Vintage…Earthy…French….Fall…themed wedding???? Well, then you are really “In for it”! In celebration of the Roaring 20′s, I thought it would be great fun to use some catch phrases from that era to describe this “Swanky” wedding!
Rick and Darren were the “Bees Knees”! Most would think their ideas and tastes were a little “Off the Wall”, but not me! I welcomed every quirky email I got from them…embraced them all.
The Ceremony took place in at Lion Rock Farm, a heavenly farm…seriously…heavenly…you’ll see why! Very intimate and sweet.
But, the reception…was the “Cat’s Pajamas”, under a tent in the courtyard of The Ragamont House Bed and Breakfast…which is where some of the inspiration came from.
Since I can not come up with the words to describe this fabulous affair..I will just let the pictures speak for themselves. Look closely for all the details…1920′s band that sings in French and other languages of love, a forest of lights, safari animal place cards and coordinating menus(Adrienne from Admire always brings it!), vintage and I mean OLD silver, etc etc I won’t give it all away…….
This is only a sampling of their wedding…there will be a TON more pics on my website coming soon……

Well, this has been so much fun for me to share such a detailed wedding that I am very proud of. I am also very thankful to Erica of Ambiance Luxe Wedding Designs for introducing me to Rick and Darren! Every vendor that was involved with this wedding worked so hard to make everything perfect…there are so many to thank…so THANK YOU to everyone below…it has truly been a honor….

This one is an oldie but a goodie! This was one of my favorite fall weddings ever!
Tiffany was such a beautiful bride, so soft spoken, but new exactly what she wanted. I must say, she has very good taste! Since her wedding 4 years ago, she has used me for baby showers, bridal showers and has referred me many times…we LOVE Tiffany!
Love the venue as well, Pine Orchard Country Club in Branford CT. Chris is fantastic to work with and you can not beat the view, located right on the water.
Okay, so this centerpiece you’re about to see is HUGE, so get ready! I was invited by Winvian (an extraordinary resort tucked away in the Litchfield Hills) to partake in a exclusive bridal show of preferred vendors.
Winvian is home to many unnamed famous clients whom enjoy the horses and vineyard while they stay in the eclectically designed high end cabins.
Since I knew that it would take place in the barn they rent out for weddings, I wanted to go with warm colors and a harvest feel. I love mixing unique items with flowers such as champagne grapes, wired covered moss balls, artichokes, candles, moss covered candles etc Especially in the fall, bringing natural elements into the design really completes the harvest feel.
This style of design is a perfect impression piece for a wedding place card table, a hotel foyer, a restaurant entry way etc.
