Happy Holidays!!!

We will be back with updated posts after the New Year!


the BIG wedding

I don't know about you, but I am a huge fan of Sex and the City and today I came across some photos from the movie that is due out May 2008. I am so happy that we finally get to see the Carrie and Big wedding, but more importantly I can't wait to see what she will be wearing!!! Here is a sneak peak of Carrie in her wedding dress.

Party Inspirations!

One down a few more to go. Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone our sites are now set on holiday parties and this year we are planning a holiday party to celebrate our engagement. I am really looking forward to it!!! I have been working with Nancy Saam, who is an amazing florist, on the ideas for the party and we have come up with some fun ideas. I have added a few photos, which have been the inspirations behind the design. Instead of sticking with the traditional holiday colors, we have decided to go with "wintery white" with a touch of icey robin's egg blue. I think it is going to be gorgeous.

Another fun idea that I really wanted to do was to make the menu fit in with the color theme and feel of the party. Check out some of our ideas below.

hope you enjoy!
the party is taking place on December 22, 2007, so I will make sure to update the blog with photos from the night.

Kleinfeld experience

So I went to Kleinfelds to try on dresses and I must admit I was a little dissapointed with the experience! I had heard that it is like a "factory" and I would have to agree. I did not feel like the consultant that I worked with was focused on me, instead she was running around calling other clients back in the middle of my appointment. Granted it was a bit more hectic because of the trunk show, however I don't think that excuses the behavior. On a good note, I was able to see all of the new Monique Lhuillier designs and they were amazing!!!! If you are looking for a dress and like her designs, I would highly recommend visiting her website to see when the next show will be.

After my experience in New York, I made a trip to Suky in Ardmore and met with Kye, who is amazing! It was a totally different atmosphere, much more relaxed and I was able to express what I was looking for without 25 other brides competing for the same dress. The most exciting news is that I have narrowed my decision down to 2 dresses! One is Monique and the other is Vera Wang, both are exceptionally beautiful. It will be hard to decide so I am bringing in the troops!!! My mother-to-be and I are going to Suky so I can get another opinion.

I will let you know how it turns out!


The date has been set...

I am so excited that we have chosen a date for our wedding. We are going to get married on September 13, 2008!!! I have started meeting with vendors and have also started to collect design ideas for linens, decor and for some of the smaller details. We are having the wedding in Harrisburg, Pa and I have found some great people to work with in the area as well as great wedding professionals that we work with all of the time.

Now the fun part!!! I am heading up to Kleinfeld Bridal Salon this weekend for the Monique Lhuillier trunk show and I can't wait to see all of the new designs. I will let you know how it goes! I hear mixed stories of the gown shopping experience from brides. Some had a great experience and are boasting about thier particular consultant and then others have told me that it was the most frustrating part of the planning process..yikes!! I hope that is not true for me!! I am really looking forward to it and if you have any advice, please share it with us.

I have found a few styles of gowns that I like and I have posted them below. I think it will be interesting to see what I like vs. what looks good on me. Well, that is all for now, wish me luck and I will tell you my tale when I return.


Photographer ALERT!!

This past weekend I was looking through a New Jersey Bride magazine and came across an advertisement for Cake and Pictures photographery studio, so I went online to see what it was all about. I was pleasantly surprised to find amazing images on the site where Shea Roggio took the cake, no pun intended! I have posted a few of his photos below, but you must do yourself a favor and check out the rest of his work!
Let me know what you think!

Summer & Tom

Summer and Tom's wedding was a hit! It is always iffy when planning an event outdoors, however we got lucky and the weather was on its best behavior. Take a look at the photos shot by Heather Fowler !


Decided to take a dip in the pond when the flower arrangement went tumbling over! Everyone seemed to love it.
