This is something a little different from our normal wedding fare! One of the perks of being a wedding planner is having some great props ready for your own parties too. This past weekend we celebrated my daughter’s 9th birthday with a magical Harry Potter themed party at the Golden Horseshoe Inn…
You know how there are certain days, where you appreciate your job even more than usual? Well, Sandy and Craig’s Wedding was one of those days for me. They are one of the nicest, coolest couples we have ever has the pleasure to work with – so down to earth and easygoing, and their stories of adventure still have me smiling and shaking my head in wonder. Their love for one another is so evident and we wish all the happiness in the world to this incredible duo. Enjoy these photos from Stephen at Kiss and Tell Wedding Photography
The Golden Horseshoe Inn hosted a wonderful Asian Fusion themed wedding this weekend and we have so many lovely details to share. The interfaith Buddhist – Jewish ceremony included lovely tributes to both faiths. So much care and attention to detail went into this celebration for Phuong and Marc – it was a day filled with Love!
Even a little rain couldn’t dampen this celebration. When the skies opened, I collected some of the rainwater from the downpour and presented it to the bride as a memento of the day and a sign of good fortune (did you know it’s lucky to have rain on your wedding day?!).

I love the contrast of the rough burlap and the delicate lace. This is one of my favorite wedding decor combinations. It is a simple and inexpensive look to achieve. Clear glass buffet plates (we rent these at Golden Horseshoe Inn) look charming with a paper doilie place card underneath.
Baby’s Breath is a perfect flower for this rustic theme. It is extremely inexpensive and looks lovely when displayed in a large bunch. Consider it for all of your bridesmaids and cut your floral budget way down! Garlands for your little flower girls to wear in their hair are wonderful too. For more information and inspiration on working with Baby’s Breath, check out this excellent article from Belle the Magazine
