Lorraine & Alim: Glamour & Grace

At the close of summer, another of our lovely couples, Lorraine and Alim, tied the knot at The Fox Hollow in Woodbury, New York.  I first met the bride during an appearance of mine on The Wendy Williams Show seven years ago.  She was a producer on that show at the time, but is now Vice President of Programming for True Entertainment and Executive Producer of Bravo's hit "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."  When she became engaged and called me to help plan her wedding, I was beyond thrilled ... and the rest in history.

Lorraine and Alim are both proud New Yorkers, so much of their wedding's design stemmed from that.  We designed and executed an extravagantly beautiful affair where hues of purple and grey took center stage.  The venue's lush, outdoor garden was chosen for the ceremony, which featured a wooden pergola draped in flowing fabric and fresh flowers.  A live jazz duo provided romantic accompaniment, as the bride walked down the aisle to Chrisette Michele's Golden.  Upon entering the ballroom, more romantic details were revealed such as towering centerpieces, specialty lighting, a multi-tiered wedding cake plus an elaborately displayed Jamaican Black Cake.  Overall, it was a wedding flanked by love and the joy of family and friends.  Beautiful.

We wish Lorraine and Alim a lifetime of love and happiness and it's our pleasure to share some of the best moments of their wedding day below, thanks to Boschelli 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…
