Rachelle and Peter got married at St. Timothy in Norwood on July 19, 2014 and had a gorgeous reception at Spring Valley Country Club in Sharon. I met Rachelle and Peter when I coordinated her brother, Roodly’s wedding.

Their wedding day started at the Four Points Sheraton with hair by Rose Agogo and makeup by Lush Makeup. The trolley from Kenny’s Coach arrived to pick up the wedding party. Michael and Trisha Films and Greg Brett Photography captured the beautiful day.

MIT Chapel & Commander’s Mansion BBQ Wedding

August 4, 2014 |  by  |  Weddings  |  No Comments  |  Share

I can’t believe this wedding was at the beginning of summer and now it’s already August – which means fall is quickly approaching! But let’s take a step back to May 17, 2014 and reminisce about Julia and Bryan’s laidback wedding day which started with a hair appointment at Davis Hair Salon in Newton, MA. The groom and groomsmen got ready at a vacation home rental in Cohasset, MA and arrived at the MIT Chapel early to greet and usher guests. My assistant, Kelsey, was coordinating the ceremony at MIT Chapel while I headed over to the Commander’s Mansion to start setup with Party Plus Taylor Rentals, New England Country Rentals, Simply Serving, Berman’s Fine Wine, Russo’s, Groove Authority and Blue Ribbon BBQ Catering.

Kelsey assisted in pinning the boutonnieres from Tangerine Creations on the groom and groomsmen at the ceremony. She also worked with the ceremony musician, Josh Nakuzawa, and transportation company, Bloom Bus, on the school bus arrangement for guests. 

Such a sweet and beautiful bride!

The DIY centerpieces were done by the bride’s mother, Ellen, who planted the flower bulbs for the wine bottles. They had Harbor Sweets wedding favors for guest along with their own napkin towel to take home at the end of the night.

Look at those gorgeous NECR farm tables! They can either seat 8 or 10 with 2 chairs on the ends.

Guests enjoyed BBQ ribs, jerk chicken, pulled pork, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, homemade pickles, and cornbread from Blue Ribbon BBQ Catering. To top off the backyard BBQ, they also had classic sweet potato pie, apple and peach cobblers with a side of whipped cream!

Harvard Museum of Natural History Wedding

May 9, 2014 |  by  |  Weddings  |  No Comments  |  Share

This was by far the most unique wedding we’ve coordinated yet! Imagine having dinosaurs, birds, and mammals at your wedding table side?! The Harvard Museum of Natural History (HMNH) was super cool and definitely an experience to work at such a great venue with the lovely couple.

The bride started off the morning with hair and makeup at the Sheraton Hotel in Copley and then the couple had their First Look at the Boston Public Library courtyard. The entire HMNH was reserved for the wedding reception so guests had an opportunity to participate in a scavenger hunt put together by the bride and groom, explore exhibits, and enjoy a sit down dinner. Different galleries in the museum were broken up into various wedding spots: i.e. Earth & Planetary Science room was utilized for cocktail hour, toasts, and dessert time for cake. Enjoy the pictures by the talented photographer, Albert Cheung!

A super sweet Christmas card from our previous couple! #makingmemories

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season! Best wishes to you and yours for the new year! <3

Happy November!

Daylight savings, pumpkins and lattes, fall foliage, hats and scarfs, apple cider = Happy November! I’m looking forward to the upcoming holidays as we host our first Thanksgiving at the new house! We’ll finally get to put the double oven to use! This is also a popular time of the year for parties and engagements! Which reminds me of a fun recipe to share with you guys from Glamour Magazine called the ‘Engagement Chicken’ that Diana posted about here.

Friends and family are a big part of the holidays and it brings me back to the Sweeney and Fink family that we worked with in June for Stephanie and Bill’s wedding. Mr. and Mrs. Sweeney were a gem to work with because they wanted nothing but the best for their daughter’s wedding. Who wouldn’t?! They spent a lot of heart on the small details of the wedding, including the hand selection of top vendors, to make it a perfect night.

1 year ago, I married the love of my life. We said “I do” under the aloha sunset on the Big Island of Hawaii.  It was an honor to have celebrated that special day with such close friends and family. Let’s take a trip down memory lane! Enjoy!

Sompao Meas Hall Wedding in Lowell, MA

July 25, 2013 |  by  |  Weddings  |  No Comments  |  Share

Happy summer everyone! Hope you guys are enjoying the sun and making lasting memories with loved ones! I just got back from a weekend in Vegas celebrating a duo-bachelorette for my two favorite brides.  Can’t wait for their upcoming weddings!

Back in May, Katie and I coordinated a big Cambodian/Laos wedding at Sompao Meas Hall in Lowell, MA with 600 guests! The day started off with lighting setup by Jim from CJC Event Lighting. I’ve seen Jim’s transformation work before so I was excited to get a chance to work with him.

Before/After

While they were setting up the drapes and lighting, Katie and I started on the DIY centerpieces for 60 tables. The bride had ordered 200 ivory tulips from Classic Flowers for the table centerpieces with LED lights submerged in water and crystal beads.

The bride and groom hired a live Laos band to perform during cocktail while DJ Manila spinned during dancing. We loved the traditional aspect of the wedding with a twist of modern. The couple wore their traditional Cambodian/Laos outfits to greet and pin guests at the door.

 Their beautifully designed wedding cake from Konditor Meister

We got a chance to witness the traditional Cambodian/Laos way of receiving cards! Someone would lift the guest in the air as high as possible and then the bride/groom would have to somehow reach it! Imagine doing that 60 times!

Sorry for the iPhone quality photos. Hopefully we’ll be able to grab some professional ones from Kojo Studios soon! Congrats to the super sweet, Sam and Nino!
