So nice to be featured again in Carats & Cake, this time, showing Kathryn and David’s Lenox wedding at the Wheatleigh. I never tire of looking at these photos by Heather Waraksa.
For anyone hosting a wedding at home, please allow me to share some simple advice. Hope for the best, plan for the worst. The secret to a tented wedding is to have a great Plan B….with a generator, a back up generator, and a dream team of vendors who smile through it all. Below, we started building the tent Tuesday just as the weatherman announced tornado warnings in the area. Who ever heard of tornados in the Hamptons? Well, just the threat. And […]
It’s no surprise that Katie and Dave’s romantic September Wheatleigh wedding was featured today on Style Me Pretty‘s front page.

The second blog installment of this wedding, complete with reception photos, is coming soon. To be notified, you’ll need to subscribe to my blog. Don’t worry. I only post […]
Just got these beautiful images of Katie and Paul’s Shelter Island wedding from Craig Paulson. So much better than the ones I snapped with my iphone. So intimate and personal. I can’t help but smile as I look at these….Invitation design and printing by Swiss Cottage Designs

Don’t you just love the “Mr […]

Tatiana and Doug both have children from previous relationships. So when they finally decided to tie the knot, the wedding needed to reflect their families new life together. Below, examples of how their children were integrated, involved and invested. Special thanks to 4 Eyes Photography for capturing the day. Dragonflies have always been a personal totem for Tati. In almost every part of the world, Dragonflies symbolizes change or more specifically, change in the perspective of self-realization and understanding the deeper meaning of life. Working with […]
Last weekend, I was lucky enough to plan a wedding at the brides family home on 120 acres in Garrison, New York. The photographer, Andrea Fischman, kindly sent me a few preview shots, and just had to share. Hudson Valley is dreamy, and I’m still basking in the glorious afterglow. Antonia’s dress from Mark Ingram, veil from Bridal Veil Falls, bouquet by Hudson Valley floral designers Steven Bruce Designs (they work in NYC too).Something borrowed, something Choo. Jimmy Choo, that is. The earrings are borrowed from the […]
