Amsale + Drama = ABC-TV WEDDING WEEK

Three of the TV dramas I've watched faithfully each and every week for a few years are featuring weddings this week: Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice and Brothers & Sisters.  Can you say "heaven?!"  This may go down in history as my own personal sweeps week

What I also love about this week is all four bridal gowns were provided by one of my favorite couture designers, Amsale.  She's dressed everyone from Julia Roberts to Katherine Heigl to Alicia Keys, and between tonight and Sunday she's adding "Callie," "Arizona," "Charlotte" and "Sarah" to the list.

First on Grey's Anatomy (Thursday at 9:00 p.m. EST), the characters "Callie" and "Arizona" will say "I do."  Sara Ramirez ("Callie") chose her own gown but asked Amsale to add sleeves.  Jessica Capshaw's ("Arizona") gown was chosen to complement Sara's and features flowing organza cut-outs and crystals.

Later on Private Practice (Thursday at 10:00 p.m. EST), the character "Charlotte" will wear one of Amsale's designs that's reminiscent of a flower (as everyone decides whether there should be a wedding at all).  Out of all of the TV brides, I feel KaDee Strickland ("Charlotte") looks most beautiful.  It's almost as if Amsale designed this gown with her in mind.

Finally, on Brothers & Sisters (Sunday at 10:00 p.m. EST), the characters "Sarah" and "Luc" will tie the knot.  The Amsale style chosen by Rachel Griffiths ("Sarah") was transformed from a full length finale piece to a tea length fun-loving version.

Don't forget to tune in!  (with a box of tissues nearby, of course)

"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…
