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

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.
