There are two types of marriage proposal: the total shocker, and the one you can see coming from miles away, as if it’s traveling on a Goodyear blimp. Depending on how long you’ve been dating—and how much you’ve talked about marriage with your partner—you can probably guess which type of proposal awaits you.

Regardless, even if you can sense that the big question is imminent, it’s not always easy to pinpoint exactly when it’s going down.

Planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things you can do in life, which makes wedding planners – who take on all that anxiety with gusto – the embodiment of the calm before the wedding storm. When Chrissy Teigen and John Legend hired wedding planner Lisa Vorce to coordinate what would become one of the most high-profile wedding celebrations of 2013, the seasoned pro found herself dealing with the dream dilemma: The celeb couple was so easygoing that they looked to Vorce to help them build everything from the ground up.

“To design their wedding, I first got to know and understand them (amazing!), then I took a look at the venue (Lake Como – also amazing!),” Vorce says. “From there, I created a ‘mood board’ that was a reflection of the colors, architecture, and topography of Lake Como, along with the vibe of John and Chrissy.

Hello Giggles

8/24/2017

A ton has been written about how millennials have changed the wedding industry — from skipping traditions that don’t align with their values to opting for smaller but still Instagrammable receptions — but they have also revolutionized the honeymoon industry.

Part of this change may be a result of twenty and thirty-something couples forgoing traditional registries and using apps like Honeyfund to raise money to travel (rather than being saddled with a set of fine china that they’ll never use).

There’s also the fact that millennials are more well-traveled than any other generation, particularly since cheap airfare and sites like Airbnb and Couchsurfing have made it easier to travel the world. So when they get married, the typical honeymoon trope of spending a week at a “romantic” all-inclusive resort just won’t do for many millennials. Instead, they are opting for offbeat and unexpected honeymoon ideas, like the ones below. Continue reading

Margeaux Baulch Klein 8/18/2017

It’s not just the ridiculous cost of weddings these days that makes some couple opt to have a small wedding guest list. Whether you live far away from your extended family or simply can’t think of 200+ people you care enough about to invite, small weddings often make more sense.

However, just because your wedding is tiny in size doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t look and feel as glamorous as a bigger shindig. Here are some small wedding ideas that will make your intimate gathering look and feel as special as anything you might see on Pinterest or Instagram. Continue reading

We were hired by Lani Toscano Design of Portland Maine to travel with her to Woodstock Vermont for this beautiful Sept 9 wedding. This is a fully floored 32×90 Sperry Tent Sailcloth tent. Onion Lights on the center poles, and Draped Bistro Lighting. Wow! Lani Toscano always does a great job. Here is what Lani does in her own words. “It is our belief that weddings and wedding planning should be fun.  Now we know that fun is a simple word, but it truly sums up our belief.  We want you to not only enjoy your wedding day, but also enjoy the journey along the way. We love to hear how you met, how you decided to marry and your dreams for after your wedding day. It all fits in to who you are, and why you have chosen to hold your wedding in Maine. It is your story that we tell through the details, it is your day and we are just your guides. Honored to become a part of clients’ lives, we relish getting to know each couple personally. Our team is ready to add fun to the planning process!”

We want to also thank Lani for the glowing review. It is always a pleasure to work with you Lani:

I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for your energy, dedication and commitment to your craft.  This weekend was filled with much joy and love and it all came together because of each one of you and your teams.  We all know what these events take and the months and hours that go into them and I am very grateful for everyone’s insight – time and contribution.

May the rest of your wedding/ event/ fall season bring YOU joy.

Thanks for making that gorgeous little corner of Vermont even just a bit more extra special this weekend.

All the best,

Lani
