I know I haven't been posting regularly but right after my summer "recap" I got slapped in the face with the prep for a bunch of upcoming October weddings. It's amazing how much you can plan and prep very far in advance but there is just no getting around all the work that has to be taken care of just a few weeks before the wedding. All couples know this is true for the details that they are finalizing around this time but trust me your vendors are hard at work too!
There are lists, many lists. I happen to love them and it works for me. Good old fashioned pen and paper. I like to cross things off. Feel a sense of accomplishment. Until I realize that I just need to transfer it on to the new list I've created. And the lists just keep coming.
But the end result is truly all worth it. So please, hang in there with me while I write and cross off my lists and I promise there will be a lot of prettiness to share. There will be oohs and ahhs, it will be awesome.
Until then I will be back with some tidbits of what I've been working on.
I know summer doesn't officially end for a few more weeks but with the weather we are having today in nyc tells us that fall is right around the corner. So as we say good bye to the last days of summer I wanted to revisit just a few of the great weddings we had this summer. All of the couples were a pleasure to work with and of course each had their own unique style which we captured in the design of their decor.

Here are some more images from Sandi and Rich's wedding a few weeks ago. I love getting shots from the couple - to see the night unfold as they did. I spoke to Sandi's mom after the wedding and she mentioned that the banquet manager commented about our use of low centerpieces. He thought it was great since so often couples go for tall designs and in the end the low worked so much better for the room, making it feel intimate and warm with the additional candlelight. Score for low centerpieces!
