Wedding: Erin & Kevin

Magnificent Couple Erin & Kevin!

There are times, as an event planner, where you just feel lucky to witness true, majestic love. The kind of heightened affinity between two individuals that makes you believe in magic and dwell upon blessings. Erin Farfaglia and Kevin Moore are exemplary of exactly that.

On a late July day we witnessed the picture of effortless love, rooted in friendship — the sort that commands you to simply cherish the day. We’d say they were mirror images of each other except he stands at least a full foot taller than she. We beheld glittering eyes as they were joined in together in matrimony, but even better, joined together in bliss at The Church of the Immaculate Conception.

Art Deco Cake

The nuptials were followed by an unforgettable affair at The Belvedere in Baltimore. With the Art Deco aesthetic, it was the perfect venue for the couple and their guest’s to celebrate the occasion. The live band, LOVE – one of the most magnificent we’ve ever experienced, performed everything from Hey Jude and Bridge Over Troubled Water to Rolling in the Deep and Nicki Minaj’s SuperBass. It was a non-stop dynamic celebration.

Mr. & Mrs. Moore!

When evening fell we knew they we couldn’t help, much like Kevin & Erin, to feel the luckiest to be a part of this day.

The Brooch Approach to your bridal bouquet

Yesterday we talked about a major focal point of your ceremony, that being the wedding cake. Another stand out aspect, which is oft forgotten as an opportunity to “wow” the guests while highlighting the aesthetic of the event, is the bouquet. The newest trend in creating a fantastic, dynamic bouquet is what I like to call the “Brooch Approach”.

The Brooch Approach is the act of actually styling your bouquet with brooches, jewels and a variety of other designer features. Many brides use this as an opportunity to integrate vintage family heirlooms and found pieces at boutiques. Another benefit of the Brooch Approach is it takes some of the pressure off finding the traditional jewelry for your wedding. There likely won’t be the same need for baubles around the neck when you’re sauntering down the aisle with one of these pieces.

Imagine appearing before your guests with one of these remarkably unique bouquets. Would you consider it?

Wedding Bouquet Trend: Succulents, front and center

Recently I’ve seen some interesting and innovative ways of styling the traditional wedding bouquet that included the heavy use of succulents. Succulents are plants generally found in arid or semiarid regions (not just cactus, people). For the purposes of bouquets they stand up beautifully, even in the warmest of settings. Their, generally muted, color juxtaposed against vibrant florals make for the most divine of looks. Unique and memorable, for sure. Challenge your floral designers and florists to look at these options. A succulent bouquet is certain to make for a conversation piece and a central, fabulous detail, front and center at your wedding.
