Connecticut Bride Magazine- Style Shoot Spring/Summer 2017

  In September of 2016 a group of FABULOUS vendors converged at the The Munger Barn at The Dudley Farm Museum, in Guilford CT  for a Western Wedding Themed Style Shoot for The Connecticut Bride Magazine! I was so honored to be planning and designing this super fun shoot, and was able to call on some of my favorite vendors to do so!  It is so important as a planner to have a fabulous pool of talented and amazing people to call upon for any Wedding or Event and this shoot was no different! So follow us on this journey

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

Throw Back Thursday Blog – A Wadsworth Mansion Wedding!

In anticipation of the upcoming Wadsworth Wedding Bridal Show, today we are featuring a Throw Back Thursday Blog, a Style Shoot Wadsworth Wedding! This elegant shoot was inspired by the Great Gatsby vibe so evident at the mansion. With a fabulous team to bring together the day, we focused on the bling on the table linens and accent pieces, with gold and light pink pops. A Bride adorned in golden accents and a jeweled bouquet brought together the total package! Creating the soft and elegant look was a pleasure.
