Some Venues just set the scene for what you know will be an outstanding event. Planning for this wedding began a year out with
Ashley Baberhttp://ashleybaberweddings.com as planner. We had a fab Tea Party at a vendor meeting with my favorite Tea Pots and much hilarity. Held at Crush Event Design http://crusheventdesign.comwith the lovely Tracy we all discussed what the overall design would look like. Julie Coffin from UFE discussed florals. Ashley organised us all!!! whilst we drank tea.
With so many gorgeous design choices at Crush we knew this was going to be a delight.
Layers of pink beginning with linens from http://bbjlinens.com our consult was such fun. Doug laid out the linen ideas and I layered the china. Rachel had the difficuly task of picking whihc she loved the most with her Mom on facetime!! such fun.
On the day of the wedding it was torential rain, so the ceremony had to be moved inside. But then a miracle and Rachel and her bridal party were able to go outside at this extraordinary historic venue and get some stunning images.
For me the http://annebargebridal.comgown truly made Rachel our Princess Bride.
I was also able to create magic at Swan Coach House for Rachels bridal luncheon, tea was the theme again. All her friends and family had a gorgeous Tea Party featuring tiered stands and teapots galore. Truly felt appreciated by this family who love fine china as much as I do.
