Jennifer and Michael met years ago in the army, but you would never guess it by how lovely they are! These two down to earth, easy going people were such a joy to work with, and I'm so honored I got to witness their commitment to love, faith and family on that day. I loved working with them on their reception decor and stationary, and Perona Farms was the perfect setting for their fun-filled reception.
Jennifer is so classic and modest, and Michael is a family man to the core. So between the soft green color palette and a their big Italian family, Jen and Mike's wedding day was truly a reflection of them.

It was such a privilege to be a part of Katelyn and Joshua's charming and elegant wedding. Katelyn and I have been friends since elementary school, and it's been wonderful witnessing her life and love story through the years. Josh is the perfect guy for her, and it brought me great joy making sure her wedding day was perfect too.
Katelyn has such beautiful tastes which made my job easy. I worked with her to fine tune the reception details, which included designing a custom seating chart, menu cards and table numbers. The day went so smooth, I think Katelyn gets the award for most relaxed bride ever.
Thank you, Katie and Josh, for trusting me with your special day!

This sunny May wedding is by far my all time favorite (because it's my own!). It was the sweetest day of my life, and I would do it all again if I could. Friends new and old joined us for this day filled with rooftop views, authentic Italian food and lots of swing dancing. Over the years, New York has become our home and we are so glad we chose to get married here.
Tony and I had a short four month engagement and a small budget, but I was determined to still create a beautiful day. To save money, we chose the low cost reception hall at our church, and I did our flowers, website and invitations myself. Friends were generous with their time and services, and in the end we managed to pull off an affordable, timeless wedding.
The day wasn't without it's challenges, and it's because of my experience planning our wedding that I decided to help other brides do the same.

These two lovebirds are some of my favorite people ever, and boy was their wedding gorgeous. Leanne is an event planner herself, so I had no doubt their wedding would be perfect. She planned and designed the beautiful day you see here, and I had the joy of making sure it was set up exactly how she envisioned.
I love the elegant color palette and details Leanne chose. There was also a lot of DIY in this wedding, believe it or not! She and her friends worked with The Flowerman to create all the bouquets themselves, which was a really fun pre-wedding activity. Leanne even grew plants for the reception from seeds!
It was an honor to serve these two on such a special day and witness their abundant love. Definitely a day for the books.

If you ever thought rain would ruin your wedding day, think again. It down poured on Daniel and Meghan's wedding day, but these nuptials were sweeter and more romantic than ever.
Something I really loved about this day was the small, intimate reception at the couple's favorite Brooklyn restaurant, Frankie's 457. It was personal and heartfelt- just the way it ought to be when surrounded by your closest loved ones. Between the amazing food and the groom's speech, every heart and stomach left full.
Meghan and Daniel are such a fun-loving and stylish couple, and all the details of their wedding day suited them perfectly- the bride's shoes, the groom's fedora, popcorn, home brewed beer, swing dancing, a photo booth, olive oil favors, and a handmade gold leaf cake made by the bride herself. The rain couldn't have stopped this day from being special even if it tried.
Thank you, Meghan and Daniel, for letting me be a part of bringing this day to life. I'll never forget it.
