Translating Personal Style into Bridal Style - Part IV

Part 4 of my series on how to translate your personal style into your wedding design and look is here!  We've already explored the Glam Tomboy, Business Beauty and Bradshaw BelleToday we continue with the DIAMOND DIVA:

The Diamond Diva is high-maintenance.  Some would consider her flashy and flamboyant, but it's mostly due to her ability to command a great deal of attention.  She seeks out only the very best and tends to follow celebrity trends.  Still, she likes to be exclusive and one-of-a-kind stays top of mind.  WOW factor is her middle name.  She makes no apologies for innate expensive taste.

If you're a Diamond Diva, consider these inspirations for your wedding:

Sometimes, it's all about location ... therefore, Destination Paris!  After all, what's better than the Eiffel Tower as a backdrop?  Secure a venue that holds lots of history and refrain from modifying it too much.  A museum cafe or castle-like hotel would be perfect.  Be sure to take advantage of texture and pattern, particularly when choosing the perfect gown.  Every detail should be dressed-up - place lucite menu cards on your dinner tables, affix bow-ties to the shot glasses on the bar, cover chairs with satin, rhinestones and feathers.  Personalized bottle labels aren't quite your style, so go over the top with bling H2O.  And put lots of thought (and sparkle) into your entrance and exit, as both need to be GRAND.  Consider an alternative to the traditional cake table as well, like a hanging bed of flowers.  Finally, dress your flower girl and bridesmaids in couture, to complement your ensemble perfectly.  Congratulations, Diamond Diva

This may sound like a messy way to describe a flower girl dress style, but it’s really a very beautiful design.

"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.

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…

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 …
