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

Your 4th of July Wedding, with a twist!

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

Should you select a holiday weekend for your wedding?

      2014 Fourth of July Wedding     When I first started in the Wedding Industry a Holiday Weekend Wedding as very rare, we didn’t have things like destination weddings, which require guests to take a long weekend. Perhaps the most we would see them would be with certain cultures/religions as they do have specific dates they seek for wedding dates, I have worked several Jewish Weddings where three day weekends work as they need to marry on a Sunday night and thus allowing their friends to not work the next day.  However times are changing and so
