Lisa & Dave: Bright Artistry

Our Bright Artistry couple was married over the weekend at The Unitarian Church in Summit.  When I first met with the bride and groom, venues were the only details firmly decided upon.  So, we worked together for 9 months on the design, planning and execution.  You may recall us sharing Lisa & Dave's engagement photos back in March and now we're proud to recap their wedding and reception, which took place at The Short Hills Hilton

On what was officially the last day of Summer, our team successfully achieved the elegant and warm-hearted atmosphere the bride and groom set out to create.  Hues of aquamarine and pink took center stage via the bridesmaid dresses, specialty linens, stationary and wedding cake.  The ballroom was illuminated by "candlelight," both literally and figuratively.  Square dinner tables were placed throughout in order to add variety, which featured 2 centerpiece designs flanked by 18-inch tall white tapers and gold-sprayed votives.  For the cake, we decided on a "watercolor" treatment along with mini-bunting and pink roses atop.  Finally, a 7-piece live band, DJ, vintage photo-booth and gourmet macaron favors rounded out the celebration and ensured most seats went empty during the final few hours of the event.

We were thrilled to have worked with Lisa, Dave and their families in creating a lovely celebration as they began their new life together. We wish Lisa and Dave a lifetime of love and happiness and are happy to share some of the best moments of their wedding day below, thanks to 3Photographers.

Also, for the first time, our team shared day-of execution of this event via Instagram which was quite a hoot.  Follow THE BRIDAL PARTY on Instagram for a first-hand look at our teams in action for this wedding as well as future events.

"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…
