Shoreline Charm: Felicia and Gerard

This September 2016 shoreline wedding for Felicia and Gerard at one of our favorite New England locations; The Owenego Inn beach and tennis club in Branford, Connecticut. When looking for a location that is 100% family owned showcasing nothing but shoreline charm, this is the place to be. Felicia and Gerard are a couple that gives back; Felicia being a nurse and Gerard being a member of our Armed Forces, this couple spend their days giving back to community. And at the wedding it was obvious that their friends and family love and support them for all that they do

Real Wedding- CT Shoreline August 2016, Marnie and Steve

Marnie and Steve came to me to be their Justice of the Peace, and in minutes we were laughing and planning the big day. I am beyond thrilled to say I became part of the team as their planner/designer and as their Justice of the Peace.  I can honestly say we had a blast working together, so much laughter at our meetings and trust in the planning process. I was able to provide the couple with all the elements they desired to create their vision, which was incredibly important to them both (and to me too)! From their perfect beach

The Halloween wedding of Mother Nature and the Wolfman October 2013

It is a rare day when a wedding allows you to go so outside the box that it creates not just a wedding, but an event that no one will ever forget. It is one of the reasons why once a year I am so proud to flashback to October 2013. The extraordinary design of this event allowed me to use my theatrical background to create the wedding of my clients’ dreams. To me, they will forever be known as Mother Nature and the Wolfman. Enjoy this Halloween wedding flashback! -Lisa

Real Wedding of Aimee and Steve September 2016

It was a true pleasure working with Aimee and Steve on their September 2016 wedding. We started the process by discussing their sense of style and desire to have a day that their friends and family would truly enjoy. We created a five hour cocktail reception by starting with the creation of a special menu featuring new food and food stations every hour of the reception. No sit down dinner, a true cocktail party. With over 200 guests surrounding them this couple allowed Creative Concepts by Lisa the ability to to take their sense of style from beginning to end,

Flashback Friday the Wedding of Nikki and Peter

When I first met Nikki and Peter, I was taken by their team-work attitude.  They had an amazing way of planning their event together, and Peter’s admiration and love for Nikki was beyond evident.  He complimented her, her hard work, and her ability to bring in family from over-seas. They had a very interesting pre and post wedding as Nikki’s family were long term house guests while they finalized and executed their plans. They also understood and even enabled my Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee Addiction! I wanted to share this flashback as it has been two years since this special day
