Real Wedding: Jennifer & Damien

1 | 1 | 11
Jennifer and Damien were married at St. Gregory the Great. A reception followed at Half Moone Cruise & Celebration Center.

They placed their plans in the capable hands of Antonia Christianson Events. She and her team made my job easy!

We started with a palette of gunmetal and ivory.

Purple flowers popped against the bridesmaids pewter dresses.

Long tables held low lush monochromatic arrangements, while rounds were topped with hydrangea and glittered branches for this cool, modern, winter wedding. We placed crystals everywhere and Pike Media lit it up! There were plenty of other details as well - like a surprise Red Sox ice sculpture, an ice cream bar, and a luxe lounge.

Real Wedding: Katrina & Kelvin

Katrina and Kelvin were married at the Sheraton Norfolk Waterside. Their ceremony and reception were held there.

The wedding party wore chocolate and we accented with pink flowers.

The reception matched the stationery - chocolate and silver. We added simple and beautiful white phalaenopsis centerpieces and lighting.

The night ended with some nostalgic tunes and Oreos and milk!

Read us in Long Island Bride!

We were honored to be included in the current issue of Long Island Bride & Groom magazine! The article "Deconstructing A Wedding" is about what to do with wedding items after the day is over.

They published our suggestion of using non-standard wedding vases and lanterns - things that you could later use in your home. We also suggested making a christening gown out of your wedding dress to create a family heirloom or creating a ring bearer pillow for other family/friends weddings.

Invitation Love!

I reallly love paper. I buy it with no purpose in mind with the certainty that I will use it one day - if I buy it, the project will come.

I recently ran across my own wedding invitation from 10 years ago and I still love it today. I was surprised and happy to see that the company still offers it today. The craft envelope and closure sold if for me. I also added a custom cream outer envelope with the same letterpress motif from the invitation. Mmmm!

Real Wedding: Charis & Keon

Charis and Keon's wedding at the Chrysler Museum of Art was beautiful and very emotional! The couple chose us for full service planning and design.

We alternated teal and moss crinkle taffeta linens and satin napkins. Gold Chiavari chairs and branches completed the look.

Centerpieces consisted of hydrangea, celosia, roses, and peacock feathers. Nora Pink orchids rested on each napkin.

They are a beautiful couple inside and out. It really is hard to sum up how I feel about them and their families. I was thrilled when Charis agreed to walk for me in the Uniquely Yours Bridal Showcase Fashion Show! It was a blast!

Real Wedding: Kelly & John (the ceremony)

Kelly and John celebrated their wedding at Half Moone Cruise & Celebration Center. The beautiful venue has an amazing view of the river.

It was a wonderful celebration with my favorite priest, Father Jim Parke. Everyone enjoyed the ceremony.
