"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.

Quick Look: Isle to Aisle

The Bridal Party's Isle to Aisle couple were united in matrimony on September 3rd at Dolce Basking Ridge.  It was such a pleasure working with this bride and groom, for over a year, on this truly memorable event.  Their 123 guests were "WOW'd" by the location, the cuisine, the colors and design, and of course the love between two wonderful individuals.  The outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour were followed by a posh reception which featured signature cocktails, photo booth and a surprise African dance troupe performance.  The dance-floor was rarely empty ... guests continuously raved about how much fun they were having.

We look forward to sharing professional photos soon, but are glad to share a few amateur snapshots below for now:
