Kristen & Todd | December 1, 2006

Kristen and Todd's wedding, which took place at Villa Rosa in Waterbury, CT, exuded warmth amongst a winter-inspired theme, with personal touches evident in nearly every aspect. At the ceremony, a table of personalized vases, each containing a single red rose, honored dearly departed family members. At the reception, a heritage table placed at the entrance to the dining room displayed family wedding photos throughout the generations.

Kristen was the ultimate do-it-yourself bride, creating her own pew decorations, centerpieces, and many other special touches. Among them were handcrafted votive candle holders meticulously wrapped with red silk rose petals, which cast a gorgeous crimson glow when lit.

Jessica & Jesse | October 20, 2006

Though the weather was gray and gloomy that day, Jessica and Jesse's wedding, which took place at Tappan Hill Mansion in Tarrytown, NY, was anything but. These high school sweethearts chose a vibrant palette of bright autumnal hues for their late October celebration. At the ceremony, guests were given programs printed on linen paper and embellished with salmon-colored ribbon. A pencil sketch of the church where Jessica and Jesse would soon wed, drawn by a dear family friend, graced the cover of each.

At the reception, guests were greeted by a collage of Jessica and Jesse's childhood photos as they entered the cocktail hour. And on a nearby table, the couple chose a non-traditional way of displaying guest escort cards - by hanging them from miniature tree branches.
