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.

"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.

scam (skām): A fraudulent business scheme

Yesterday, I received my first wedding scam attempt (guess my latest marketing and advertising efforts are starting to work). I received an email from an "Irish" bride-to-be whose fiance was offered a job in the U.S. and needed help planning a small wedding in New Jersey. I vaguely remembered hearing of certain swindle attempts on wedding vendors (especially photographers and videographers), so my radar peaked immediately, however, I didn't jump to any conclusions right away. I responded to the email, drew up a preliminary proposal, quoted cost of service and submitted an invoice for payment. Nonetheless, when it became apparent that the bride-to-be and her French fiance only intended on mailing a cashier's check, I knew right away what I was dealing with ... a scam! I happen to know that international cashier's checks are not fully validated for 90 days. So even though the check may clear at first, if found to be phony, the money is later deducted.

I must say, it…
