Winter Wonderland at the Lawn Club

I LOVE this time of year! Not just because it’s Christmastime but because of the wonderful winter weddings! And…have you ever seen the  New Haven Lawn Club decorated for Christmas?  It is done so superbly! Yes I said superbly! It’s so classic and sparkly that you don’t need many decorations to fill up the space. I mean, you certainly need to let your guests know that there’s a wedding happening, YOUR wedding.  But with decorated Christmas trees from floor to ceiling, you’re not needing to have tall, huge over flowing centerpieces.  Simple and classic is best. And that’s just what Ashley and Chris did! Of course they added their own twists so that their personality shown through…like, an all red rose bouquet! or a 8 foot tall Christmas tree with ornaments that doubled as the escort cards!

I can’t wait for you to see what I’m talking about…..and you will…soon, but first I have to reflect…as this Ashley and Chris’s first year wedding anniversary will be in just a few days on the 19th! And boy did so much happen since then…

They have boy and girl twins! yes, twins! And the awesome photographer, Alicia Ann,  snapped these awesome pics below, had her own little bundle of Joy, a baby boy! Dreams coming true before my eyes!

It’s so wonderful to see my clients and vendor friends grow their families! I wish them and you all the best this holiday season and hoping all of your dreams come true, too!

Now take a look at a Classic Winter Wonderland Wedding….and her dress! She found it at The White Dress by the Shore and they worked together to add the lace in such an elegant way.

Colorful Fall Elegance

What do you do when the sweetest bride ever! tells you she bought her fiance an Orange, Raspberry, Deep Purple and Bright Green bow tie and wants her wedding to be that color story….and using summer-like flowers for her ‘Fall” wedding…?  Well, if you’re me, you say ‘Hell yeah, that’s awesome, let’s do it!’  So…we did it and turned out to be one of the best color combinations and floral varieties I’ve designed in a long time. What most people don’t know is that towards the end of wedding season and autumn many flowers become unavailable and the inventory of unique, colorful flowers can be very limited.  This is where hiring an experienced designer can  benefit you due to the years of connections they have with suppliers as well as knowledge of what can be in season in other countries, etc  I’ll spare you the behind the scenes details and just show you what I’m talking about……

The Best ‘cake topper’ Ever
