Noteworthy Over At Colin's Blog

I was very excited to have met Colin Cowie at The Wedding Salon's NYC bridal show in March. I was all the more excited to have received an email from Colin shortly thereafter thanking me for my support.  But none of that compares to how appreciative and humbled I am that Colin has decided to list After YES, Before I DO & Everything In Between as a noteworthy blog over at Colin's Blog: Life At 120 Miles Per Hour!

This is truly an honor, for Colin Cowie's dedication over the years to designing beautiful events AND providing exceptional service as an arbiter of style is second-to-none.

As I expressed in my reply back to Mr. Cowie's email, his accomplishments have been an inspiration in that I will always be "passionate about my work and remain a 'student'...[focused to] continuously challenge myself to learn and evolve, [which] I believe is crucial in providing top-notch service" to the clients of THE BRIDAL PARTY.

Thanks so much again, Mr. Cowie.

Readers/Followers/Fellow Bloggers: Be sure to stop over and check out Colin's blog!  It's a MUST read.

Wow, Rashana!!!

Congratulations on your success. Colin Cowie is not small potatoes and Wow! such an honor for you!

I stumbled upon your blog 3 days ago and have been enjoying taking my time reading and savoring each post.

This is the second awesome blog that I have found within a 1 week period. The other blog doesn't pertain to weddings but the blogger is a very talented designer. I have pulled a lot of great party ideas from her posts.
She hasn't posted in a while but she replied to my email that she will be posting again soon.

Well Rashana, outstanding blog! I will be a follower for sure.

"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…
