Classic New Haven Wedding

How lovely is this classic New Haven Wedding?   I love the romance of the ceremony and the glamour and elegance of their reception.  With sparkly details, from their sparkly Jimmy Choos to crystal chandeliers,  to the beautifully classic elements, from their invitations, to the dramatic church, to the all white rose bouquets and orchid centerpieces.  And there is something about those beautifully captured black and whites, that makes me swoon.

Moustach Bash 1st Birthday

Love this moustache bash first birthday party.  From the chevron to the blue & green color palette, to the fabulous cake,  to the wet your whiskers beverage station, and to the little bow ties and moustaches adorning everything, I'm loving all the great details.  The chalkboard sign is fabulous, love how it displays all his favorites, and is so trendy.  And how dapper and adorable is the birthday boy!

Superbowl Party

Love this grown up take on a Superbowl Party.  Playing off of the black and white referee outfit, this party is sophisticated and fun without being overly cheesy.  Complete with a build your own taco bar, margarita mixes, commercial bingo and so much more.


Girl Scouts Party

It's that time of year again, where you get suckered into buying multiple boxes of delicious cookies but a preteen in a green vest.  I just placed an order for thin mints, carmel delights, and shortbread cookies, in my defence my unborn child was craving them.  That's why I love this Girl Scouts themed party for making sure you don't eat all those cookies by yourself, or as a fundraising technique to sell the most boxes.  With pink and green color palette, stripped and ribbon accents, and the Girl Scout logo, this adorable party would be perfect for any Girl Scout or troop.

Amazing Lace

I'm obsessed with Elie Saab's Spring 2013 collection.  Can you say amazing lace?  Love these breathtaking pieces, from full blown lace skirts to hints of lace, these would be gorgeous to walk down any aisle in.  Or be bold and pick a nonwhite option for your send off number or reception dress.


Winter Wonderland Birthday Party

Given the weather this past week, this winter wonderland birthday party is the perfect excuse to stay indoors.  I love all the pastel colors, the soft ambiance, the delicious treats and the festiveness of the party.  The goodies included: chocolate covered pretzels, Oreo pops, sugar cookies, marshmallow flakes, choclate mini balls, wonderland cake, and of course hot cocoa and milk.  So festive and perfect for a girly winter birthday party.

Venice Destination Wedding

There's more romance than I could possibly imagine in these beautifully captured newlywed shots.  And with an engagement session in Capri, you would only expect pure romance and glamour from these two love birds.   I'm obsessed with the ones of this gorgeous couple getting ready.  There's something so magical about Italy, and Venice in particular, these photos are sure to make you swoon.  Happy Thursday!

Favorite Things Party

Thanks to Oprah, we've seen the favorite things party gain in popularity.  The premise, each invitee brings enough of their favorite thing (one for each person), and goes home with a goodie bag full of other invitees favorites.  Every one's favorite things are beautifully laid out and the ladies proceed to shop for everyone favorite items, thus the fun shopping bags.  Alternatively, guests could explain why the item is their favorite or how they use it, and hand one out to each guest.  I love this festive & "girl's night out" take on a favorite things party.
