Cathy & Kristin are Married!

Posted on July 25, 2019 at 10:00 AM Comments comments (0)

What do you get when you combine 2 cultures, 2 religions, 2 Disney fans,  2 culinary backgrounds, 2 Harry Potter aficianados, a suit of armor made of tin foil, crazy musical talent and possibly the coolest bridal party of all time?  Cathy & Kristin's big day!  

I have to tell you their weekend was really challenging.  We were dealing with an extremely disorganized and uncooperative venue who frankly failed on all counts t...

Nerds Unite!


When a couple loves Star Wars as much as I do...you know the wedding is going to be epic!  Some wonderful details from this unique and soulful celebration that I really loved are the "smudging ceremony" performed by their maid of honor, a personalized slide show and story book from the bride to the groom and the completely non-traditional, but 100% Shana dress!

Venue:  A Wedding on the Hudson/Arts Center on the Hudson-Mechan...

OOOOKKKAAAYYYY folks...let's chat about making decisions.   


I get it.  You start by Googling, which leads to Wedding Wire, which leads to The Knot, which leads to you realizing it's 3:00 a.m. and you have clearly gone off the rails.  There are about a bazillion wedding professionals out there  Then, you go to a bridal show and your brain almost explodes because you get information from another 10 million people.  You can't remember who was who,...

Tent Wedding Woes

Posted on January 31, 2019 at 1:45 PM Comments comments (0)

I see it all the time...a couple decides to do a tent wedding in an open field or a barn.  Then they hire a catering company and pick a package without bringing the caterer to the venue or property first.  After a while, a site visit happens and the reality sets in...you will now need $5,000 in rental equipment, tents and generators to accomplish the menu you have selected and accomodate all of the vendors you have hired.   Or, worse...the caterer tells you that it is simp...
