I always love seeing the cake at every event. There is usually some correspondence between myself and the baker talking about flower choices and color schemes so that everything coordinates flawlessly. This past season we had the pleasure of working among the most talented bakers in the area and witnessed some of the prettiest cakes we have ever seen at our events! From a cake decorated with a lush cascade of fresh Peonies to delicate sugar flowers petals scattered down a cake each event had a completely unique and gorgeous confection that fit the atmosphere perfectly! I am always amazed at how these talented bakers can create such real looking flowers out of sugar!
The Ceremony took place in the idyllic Essex Town park overlooking the CT River. The bride requested bright pops of pink in the chuppah design to create contrast against all the green in the park, Hydrangeas and Garden Roses were included to add the vivid accents of color.

It’s always exciting to see the color of the year released by Pantone and especially to see it’s effect in the year to come in wedding trends. A description from Pantone of this year’s color ‘Radiant Orchid’ ‘enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid inspires confidence and emanates great joy, love and health.

Looking forward to seeing how this color gets incorporated into this coming season’s events!
There is no better feeling than standing back and taking in all the beauty of a wedding after months of brainstorming, client meetings, a full week of designing and hours of setup. It is one of the most rewarding feelings and the reason why I love what I do! But to relive it again through gorgeous pictures from Justin & Mary and then to find out it was featured in the Style Me Pretty 2013 Fashion and Beauty E-Mag is the the ultimate honor!
