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

I adore this location and all the fun features it holds, which include a barn style event space, a hotel, and staycation facility! Lizz and Todd spent time truly following their sense of style by adding many DIY touches to their wedding to ensure that their country-chic theme came through! The Heritage Hotel’s farm-board walls and rustic beams in the ceiling made this venue

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,
