Quick Look: Farm Fête

The Bridal Party's Farm Fête couple tied the knot on June 9th at Highlands Farm in beautiful Blaistown, New Jersey.  This gorgeous farm and surrounding land has been in the groom's family for many years, so it was decided very early on it would be the perfect location for both the ceremony and reception.  It was also clear, from the beginning, the wedding was to be a true reflection of who the bride and groom are as individuals as well as who they are as a couple ... easygoing, fun and charming.

One of our most anticipated events this season, the celebration of Claire and Michael Paul's nuptials was humble, modest and meek - just perfect.  Instead of adding "black-tie" to the invitations, we urged everyone to "leave their heels at home."  Each and every goal we set together months ago was achieved, plus our prayers against rain were graciously answered.  From the school bus shuttles to the create-your-own cupcake and s'mores bar to the moonbounce for adults and cowboy boots, we successfully achieved the folksy atmosphere we set out create and guests truly had a ball!

We can barely contain our excitement to share our full recap and professional photos soon, but luckily we're able to display several on-the-spot snapshots below:

Our team and vendors pulled off a truly memorable event for this couple.  We worked hard, but managed to have a little fun too.  What a fabulous day!

"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…
