What's On Your Registry? (2nd Edition)

I always LOVE posting about the latest and greatest in wedding registry items. Sometimes registering for wedding gifts can be confusing and stressful, but at the same time it's easy to have fun while hand-picking many of the items you'll receive for your wedding. Just remember to make it count. Do your research and take your time.

Here are a few registry picks to consider:

Cuisinart Grind & Brew Thermal 10-Cup Automatic CoffeemakerThe Cuisinart Grind & Brew is what many call "an elegantly designed coffeemaker." This machine automatically grinds whole beans before brewing, so every cup is fresh and rich. And one of it's other great features is that the timer can be set up to 24 hours ahead, so you can wake up to a fresh pot.

Calphalon Panini Grill with Press

Panini's are all the rage these days and Calphalon has made it easy to grill sandwiches and juicy burgers. The cast iron pan features a ridged bottom that brings all the benefits of outdoor grilling to your stovetop, while the heavyweight press facilitates contact with the grill for amazingly even results.

Discovery Bone China from Target

This affordable and lovely ensemble is available at Target! Each 5-pc. place setting includes a salad plate, dinner plate, rimmed soup bowl, cup and saucer. A serving set is also available, featuring the matching teapot, sugar bowl, creamer, serving platter and serving bowl.

PotteryBarn Wall Monogram

PotteryBarn's easy-to-apply monogram adds a unique touch to any room. Choose a single initial or three-letter monogram. Each is made of thin matte vinyl with a light adhesive for firm placement and easy removal.

Cuisinart Wine CellarAnother favorite from Cuisinart! This "wine cellar" is configured to provide attractive storage for 12 standard bottles of wine while maintaining them at their ideal storage temperature. Plus, it's compact enough for use on a bar or kitchen countertop. A snazzy gift indeed.

"Farm Sweet Farm" 1st Birthday Party

My husband and I celebrated our baby twins, Jonah & Gia's, 1st birthday with a "Farm Sweet Farm" party last weekend.  The party was held at our home (aka The Anderson Farm) and our closest family and friends excitedly attended.  Honestly it's still difficult for us to believe a full year has gone by since they entered our lives, but one thing was clear from the beginning --- we had a lot to celebrate and we intended to do just that!

Everyone had loads of fun; they would've partied until the cows came home if we let them.  And since the guests of honor LOVE animals, the theme proved to be absolutely perfect for them and their guests.  To most, I'm known for planning amazing weddings and bridal celebrations by means of THE BRIDAL PARTY, so it was really a lot of fun to step outside of my comfort zone and show off my versatility and range.  I can't deny, this was FUN!  I'm still quite "giddy" about it all.

Aidan & Jonathan: Enchanted Forest

We shared snapshots of our Enchanted Forestwedding just four days ago and somehow, SOMEWAY, professional photos became available last night!  (an unbelievable world record ... calling Guinness after the holiday)

As mentioned before, we were brought on to plan and execute this wedding just 3 months out, at which time 90% of the vendors and service providers had not been selected.  But I must say, we couldn't have had a better team of professionals bring this event to life if we'd started a year ago.  

The ceremony was held in the evening on the outdoor patio of Stone House at Stirling Ridge in Warren, NJ.  On this brisk mid-November night, our teams successfully achieved a loving and warm ambiance by having clear tent wall covered by swags of 21-foot long fabric hung on the outer perimeter of the space.  This treatment allowed for the bride's dream of being married near nature but also kept the couple's beloved friends and family comfortable.  A blooming birch-branch …

Lola & Lekan: Golden Gala

We shared snapshots of our Golden Gala wedding last month, but now professional photos are in!

This season we've been extremely blessed with virtually perfect weather, and for this event it was no different.  A traditional Nigerian ceremony was held the day before, featuring a host of absolutely stunning elements of the bride and groom's African culture.  The traditional American ceremony, the next day, was held at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Englewood followed by a really fun-loving reception at The Royal Manor in Garfield.  Almost 500 of the couple's family and friends partied into the night, enjoying a gorgeous mix of Nigerian and American culture ... plus our romantically designed "Sweets Sideboard" that followed their white, ivory and gold color scheme was a huge hit!

It was such a pleasure working with Lola and her family, which is why we couldn't wait to share some of the best moments of the beginning of her new life with Lekan below, tha…
