Congratulations, Danielle & Thomas!

One of THE BRIDAL PARTY's biggest supporters and helpers recently married the love of her life and we are so happy for them both. The bride, Danielle, has been in our corner since 2007 and remains a huge fan of all that we do. Not only has she contributed to many of our efforts in planning/designing outstanding weddings and events, she effortlessly brought an unmatched elegance to her own wedding.

The ceremony was held at Saint Edward the Confessor Church in New Fairfield, Connecticut and the reception took place at the Portuguese Cultural Center in Danbury.  Local specialties from Connecticut and Saratoga, New York (where the bride and groom are originally from, respectively) were lovingly incorporated like Saratoga Sparkling Water in all the hotel rooms and Q Products BBQ sauce (an ode to the bride's best friend, who is the founder).  And you'll notice from the photographs the wedding was a beautiful success and every guests had a ball!  Favors were bottles of wine from Altamont Vineyards & Winery in Altamont, New York (which one of the groomsmen owns).  Everything was perfectly classy, tasteful and gorgeous ... especially my favorite element, the cake (created by Sweet Rewards)!

We are proud to share a few of the best moments of Danielle and Thomas' wedding day below, thanks to Cristiana Paula Photography:

"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…
