I am so thankful that I have been blessed with some of the greatest clients around.  In the list of great clients, Meghan and Matt are right at the top!

This adorable couple has a very busy life and they realized that they needed help with putting their wedding plans together and I was honored to be their Planner. Special thanks go to David Clarke of Chelsea Floral Designs for the referral!!

The bride’s style was classic, traditional and elegant.  Her color palette was Navy and Peach.  Her dress , from Winnie Couture, was a beautiful lace, fit and flare dress with cap sleeves, v-neck and sheer back.  Meghan looked stunning.  

The bridesmaids wore elegant navy dresses with a one-shoulder strap.  

The Groom and his groomsmen looked dapper in blue tuxedos with a slight difference of the groom’s being a deep navy while the guys were a brighter shade of blue. 

The ceremony was held at Redeemer Lutheran church while the reception was held at the Georgian Terrace Hotel.

Hair and Make-up for the ladies was provided by The Moore Agency.  They all looked so pretty.  

A very touching moment was when the Father of the Bride saw his daughter for the first time.  She presented him with a hand-embroidered handkerchief that I’m sure will be a keepsake forever!

Chelsea Floral Designs created the gorgeous floral arrangements.  The bouquets were swoon-worthy.  Megan’s bouquet had a special touch,  part of her mother’s wedding dress was wrapped around the stems. 

The amazing Laura Stone captured the day with her talented and artistic eye.  She has such an easy way with clients, that they feel at ease and comfortable, allowing her to capture the beauty and emotion of the day!  Her images will undoubtedly allow the couple, their family and friends to relive the the special day filled with love and joy for years to come. 

Guests enjoyed Cocktail Hour in Livingston’s Bar at the Georgian Terrace Hotel, with tasty hors d’oeuvres and refreshing beverages before entering the Grand Ballroom for the dinner and reception.

DJ Eric Anthony was on hand keeping the party going and the dance floor full!

Thank you Meghan and Matt for allowing me the honor and privilege of planning and producing your special day.  I wish you both a lifetime of happiness!!!!

Enjoy these images from Laura Stone!

I took a few photos during the day too……the ones of the cake were because of how the ceremonial cutting had a tiny issue.  If you look at the professional photos of the couple cutting the cake, you’ll see they are laughing and then look closely at the Groom holding the plate up and you will see the slice of cake was a bit of a mess.  I had to take a photo of the end result of the cutting.  I LOVE that they had a good time with the messy cutting – which just goes to show what a fun couple they were to work with!!!

Bridesmaid Dresses

Posted in Planning Tips and Information, Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 9:00 am by JBEvents


Selecting the bridesmaid dresses is very often a daunting task and it is easy to see why ~ you have to consider the body shape of your attendants, the color that will look best on them, the style that will be flattering on everyone, as well as the color and style that best suits your overall wedding taste.  In addition to all of those considerations, there is also the cost of the dress.  Most of my clients are very conscientious of the price point for their attendants, but even so, many attendants still have qualms about spending the required amount.

The good news is that so many major retailers are now carrying a line of bridesmaid dresses.  Some of our favorite stores even have options, like J. Crew, Ann Taylor, and Banana Republic.  But now, another large retailer has entered the market, Target, and I have to say, the options are wonderful and the prices are excellent.  I have seen virtually the same style dresses on several of my clients bridal parties but I would venture to say the price tag on those dresses were considerably higher.  

The options include not only a variety of styles but popular color options as well.  It might be worth checking them out, especially since the price point will be most appreciated by your attendants allowing them to afford a better shower and wedding gift for you!  

Take a look and see what you think!!
