Nicole & Arnaldo: NYC Sweet

Our NYC Sweet couple, Nicole and Arnaldo, were married last month at the Chart House Restaurant in Weehawken.  I first met with this bride and groom over 2 years ago in my old studio, and we partnered closely selecting all aspects of their event from A-to-Z.  

Since many of the pivotal moments of their relationship took place in or near New York City (1st date and engagement ... just to name a couple), it became the obvious choice for a theme (hence my little nickname of NYC Sweet).  And on what was officially the last day of Spring, we successfully achieved the intimate and romantic experience our beautiful bride and groom set out to create.  

Hues of pink and purple took center stage at this affair, via specialty lighting and linens, towering lush florals, a designer aisle runner, the delectable 3-tiered cake, lounge furniture and all other pieces of stationary.  Just 25 of the couple's closest family and friends were invited, but the love exuding from the space truly rivaled events I've designed for 300+ guests for sure!  It was exquisite.

I was thrilled to have worked with Nicole and Arnaldo in creating a unforgettable celebration as they begin their new life together.  They are wonderful as individuals and incredible as husband and wife.  I wish them a lifetime of love and happiness and am happy to share some of the best moments of their wedding day below, thanks to Robert Roscigno Photography.







P.S.  Also check out a few of my own snapshots, taken in between placing tables, adjusting centerpieces, bustling the bride's gown and ordering everyone around (wink):

"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 …
