Stacy + John

 

Stacy & John were the sweetest couple.  They planned a majority of their wedding from out of state so Arlette, John's step-mom, took the lead.

 It worked out perfectly, as the festivities took place at her stunning home and perfectly manicured garden! "Garden" doesn't quite describe it...the property was modeled after a European garden and it was immaculate!

This wedding had to go off without a hitch, as John's father also happens to be my father's boss!! Thankfully, it did.

The day flowed effortlessly and the ceremony was so meaningful, especially when the couple's three kids took part.

With rain looming in the forecast, we had to execute our weather plan and bring in quite a bit of tenting. The girls from Seventh Stem did an absolutely amazing job adorning the tents and really tying it into the overall design scheme.

When all was said and done, we were all so happy that we brought in tents as the lighting and hanging greenery was drop-dead-gorgeous!

Guest cocktailed around the pool and then enjoyed a delicious dinner and heartfelt toasts under the glowing wedding tent. DJ Zimmie started the party poolside with a sparkler first dance and the festivities went into the wee hours!

Stacy + John--it was a pleasure getting to know you and your family.  Congrats to you both!!

Bridal Bliss was exceptional in helping us plan a perfect garden wedding for our son. The wedding was at our home and so organized I was completely able to enjoy the whole day, it was flawless! The attention to detail, communication with vendors and follow up after each meeting was impressive. Meghan and Nora went above and beyond to put together a rain plan and tent that ended up being magical with chandeliers , candles and hundreds of white roses. They were always so professional and lovely to work with. We are now currently working with them a second time for our daughters wedding! I would highly recommend Bridal Bliss to help you plan your perfect wedding day.

Kate + Trevor

 

Kate and Trevor envisioned an elegant garden party to celebrate their wedding, and their dream came alive with luxuriant décor and classy detail. In a sweet reflection of Kate’s parents’ wedding celebration, they were also married at TRINITY EPISCOPAL CATHEDRAL and received their guests following the ceremony at a private club nearby for cocktails, dinner and dancing.  Champagne, copper and gold with navy blue accents set the tone for a very classy affair, with art deco inspired glam touches (just look at Kate’s gorgeous dress!)  Geometric Toblerone chocolate bars were wrapped for place cards at each setting, while lush garlands of greenery ran along the center of the banquet tables.  Coral and peach florals played off the gold, copper and champagne shades.  As twilight descended thousands of flickering candles mirrored the twinkling café lights strung overhead, and the band crooned jazz and blues:  Romance was alive in the summer night air!  After dinner the garden wedding kicked up a notch with swinging dance music and bright flashes of a photo booth to capture all the fun and silliness of their guests.  Congratulations, Kate and Trevor!
