Job Well Done

The Bridal Party's Outdoor Nuptials Bride tied the knot last night at The Bridgewater Manor in Bridgewater, New Jersey.  This was an affair centered around family and bringing everyone together by love.  The bride was one of the sweetest clients we've ever had and it was a pleasure working to make her wedding day beautiful.  All involved did an outstanding job, and this time, we have professional photos to share with you already, courtesy of Douglas Adams Jr.!

A Few Of My Favorite Things...

Each season brings new and exciting ideas/items for those planning wedding celebrations. Just when you think you've seen it all, something new knocks you out of your comfort zone. But I just love new ideas for ways to make your wedding really special. And the way to do that is to find favors/gifts/touches that are wonderfully unpredictable!

These are a few of my favorite things...

Postcup™ by bailey doesn't bark Such a cute idea for bridesmaid gifts. These white porcelain cups are decorated with “postcard” design, where your custom message and the recipient's address are painted on. What a perfect way to say "thank you" and make each of your bridesmaids feel appreciated.

Save The Date Cookies by The Flour Pot Cookies Now this isn't your average save-the-date magnet. Each recipient will literally be in for a treat as each cookie is personalized with your wedding date and wrapped in a cello bag with a festive raffia tie.

Crystal Diamond Paperweight by Z Gall…

Weekly Wedding Eye-Candy: 8/19/09

Our Weekly Wedding Eye-Candy today features a Maryland wedding that took place at Glenview Mansion in Rockville. These gorgeous photos were captured by Kate Headley Photography and they are impeccable. There are so many things about these photos and this event that I love.  I LOVE the lovely lush garden the ceremony took place in.  I LOVE that the bridesmaids had such a wonderful time.  I LOVE that they had a steel-drum band.  I LOVE that the bride-and-groom chose to pose for a day-after shoot.  And what a handsome couple!

The State of the Union

While flipping through my most recent copy of Brides New Jersey Magazine, I came across their latest at-a-glance review of what's happening in weddings, what wedding trends should be on their way out and what's on the horizon. The article is always pretty funny, and accurate, so I thought I'd share a few items on their list with you:

BACKLASH IMMINENT
The 15 minutes during which these ideas remain compelling are almost up.
ECO-EVERYTHING: The marketing hype over green wedding products has left us rolling our eyes-and, more importantly, no closer to taking better care of the planet.WEDDING TCHOTCHKES: Now more than ever, doodads and junkables seem not only silly, but tastelessly wasteful.CRAZY BRIDES: Dear Movie Studio and Television Execs, it IS possible to be a young bride and not a crazy person at the same time.  Enough with all the vapid, dumb-girl stereotypes.COLORED SASHES: It's a seven-year trend that's feeling it's age.DAMASK: We loved it.  Then this orna…

Weekly Wedding Eye-Candy: 8/12/09

Our Weekly Wedding Eye-Candy today features an Independence Day wedding that took place at the Fairmont Nob Hill in San Francisco, California. Chenin of Boutwell Studio captured these stunning shots of the couple and their fabulous event. It's clear to see this was a laid-back day.  No huge wedding party...a soft white and ivory color palette...wonderful weather.  How perfect!  And I LOVE the vintage white mailbox used for the guests' "best wishes" for the bride and groom.
