Job Well Done

The Bridal Party's Autumn Candlelight Bride tied-the-knot this passed Friday night at The Richfield Regency. The bride and groom worked together with me for 10 months planning this romantic and intimate celebration which featured a chocolate/dahlia palette and loads of special touches such as a personalized aisle runner (designed by the groom), a wishing well in the place of a traditional guest book, a Swarovski crystal adorned canopy, custom menu cards and candles, candles, candles! This couple was such a pleasure to work with and all involved did an outstanding job.

Below are a few snapshots of the day ... but professional photographs are coming soon! Stay tuned.

Also, special thanks to Jocelyn for assisting (always an absolute life-saver).

P.S.  The groom is a graphic designer and decided to design and print the wedding programs himself, which came out beautifully.  When I saw the final version the night of the wedding, I noticed the couple added the following passage to the thank-yous on the back cover:
"Last but definitely not least, we would like to thank Rashana Anderson of The Bridal Party LLC for being the phenomenal wedding planner that you are.  It is because of you that this wedding will indeed be a success, by shedding valuable insight and creative ideas that we would have never though of, and for that we thank you so very much."

... and that's why I love what I do.  Things like this make it all so worth it!


It looks absolutely gorgeous! I love love the runner. Cant wait to see the pro pics.

"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…
