Your Cultural Affair

When working with Mehreen and Jonathan, they wanted to celebrate both their families and their cultural upbringings. Mehreen, the bride, was born and raised by a Pakistani Family here in the United States, and Jonathan, the groom, was raised on Long Island, NY by a Jewish Family. They were able to provide an amazing weekend of events full of love, culture, music and food, and of course, the bringing together of two families.  Friday evening the families were treated to a traditional Pakistani Wedding Ceremony, and then the weekend continued on Sunday where Creative Concepts was lucky enough to be their planner

When planning a 4th of July wedding, Laura and Jeremy wanted to create a special day to remember! With guests coming from far and wide, this couple truly gave them all a one of kind experience with their rehearsal dinner, accommodations, and brunch at the famous Griswold Inn in Essex, CT.  Their Wedding Ceremony was surrounded by historic steam trains at the Essex Steam Train, and then it was ALL ABOARD with a 45 minute trip up the shoreline to Deep River for their tangerine and chevron inspired wedding at the Lace Factory! The end of the night was capped off

Your Post-Destination Reception

The destination wedding has become a popular option for couples looking for the exotic, but as Danielle and Angelo realized, their family and friends that can’t attend truly want a chance to celebrate by your side! This event for Danielle and Angelo was a 5 hour cocktail celebration at Lounsbury House in Ridgefield, CT. The mansion is a perfect location for a cocktail party – with a grand staircase, oversized farmers porch, and stunning wood work throughout, we created a classic event for all to share!

Your Tent Wedding

When couples consider a tent wedding, it is often with the thought that it is in an inexpensive way to go. What they tend to forget is the time and effort that goes into such an undertaking, and how it is critical to have a planner/designer lead the charge on this special day! With an incredible relationship with Chase Canopy Company I wanted to highlight just a few of our favorite looks. From the more simple to the more ornate, your wedding dreams can come true right in your backyard, when you have the right team to make it happen!

Your Farm Wedding

Dudley Farm in Guilford, CT is a hidden gem just minutes away from down town New Haven, CT! For a smaller wedding or rehearsal dinner space, this is an adorable barn wedding location! Cyn and Dana were September 2015 hands on brides – designing their invitations, their signage, and using farm cut flowers for their bouquets and centerpieces. We all worked together the night before the wedding to bring all the elements to life in order to create a day that truly spoke to their bohemian rustic style! It was important to the brides that they celebrate culture with music,
