Let the fun part of planning begin!

We booked our reception site. After lots of back and forth, number crunching and logistical issues with planning a destination wedding we have decided to have our reception at The 1812 Farm. I love it--go to their site and check out the gallery of photos. We should be able to have some fun with this.

Featured Testimonial: Michele!

I worked with Michele earlier this year to create custom event style posters for her wedding invitations. I modified my usual event design for her, to contain some other typefaces and scrolls for another look. I also designed a larger poster for her to print and frame for the reception for the guests to sign. What a great idea!

Here is a photo of the newlyweds---how ADORABLE is her dress and how cute is she? Michele got it from BCBG and is has.....gasp....POCKETS! I am a total sucker for a dress with pockets, I'd love to get some put into my wedding dress.

I love how they turned out and so did Michele and S.J. Here's what they had to say:

My husband and I wanted to send a big thank you for putting your amazing talents to work for our NYC wedding reception. The night was perfect and we got numerous compliments from guests that just LOVED our invites and the poster was the perfect way to greet guests. We now have the print completely signed and marked up from guests framed in our apartment. It totally captured "us" and our event.

Thank you again and I hope you are taking some time to enjoy the summer,
Michele and S.J.

Thanks Michele, you guys were so much fun to work with--and thank you so much for sharing photos with me.

Brooch Bouquets

I wish I had enough of my grandmother's brooches to make a bouquet like these from Fantasy Floral Designs. Check out her arrangements, they are so amazing! If you are lucky enough to have a big collection of heirloom brooches, you should consider making a bouquet from them:

I only have a handful of jewels from my grandmother, I think I will pick my favorite one and pin it around my bouquet to represent my "somethingi old":

Our ceremony site!

While there is still SO MUCH to figure out, we do have our ceremony location set in place. I'm so excited about it--since I was a little kid, I thought it would be pretty amazing to get married in the Harrington Meeting House. It was built in 1775, and the inside is all kinds of beautiful. The outside is pretty charming too.

I'm really not sure what we will even need to do to the inside, other than put some flowers in some of the windows. Frommer's Maine Coast says it best, "It's an architectural gem on the inside, almost painfully austere..."

Rather than typical bench pews, the meeting house is filled with box pews--which is our favorite part.

Even the ceilings are breathtaking:

Now, to determine the reception location. Hopefully that will be nailed down this week, along with a photographer (which is turning out to be the hardest decision!).
