Jen & Ryan | September 22, 2007

Jen and Ryan chose a theme of classic romance for their afternoon wedding, which took place at Villa Bianca in Seymour, CT. In keeping with this vision, various shades of red ranging from bright crimson to deep burgundy lent great texture and interest to a monochromatic color palette. In their wedding chapel, the couple used simple decor elements to subtly enhance the romantic feel, with a single red rose adorning each pew.

Following the ceremony, guestss moved on to the reception in one of Villa Bianca's handsome ballrooms, where favors of personalized votive candles were set against the backdrop of an elegant centerpiece - a single red pillar candle nestled on top of glass beads in a beautiful crystal vase.

Paula & Brooke | September 22, 2007

Paula and Brooke's wedding, which took place at a private residence in Weston, CT was tastefully elegant in its simplicity. Following an intimate garden ceremony, guests moved on to a tented courtyard, aglow with candlelight, for a casual hors d' oeuvre reception. The couple selected a color palette of hydrangea blue and crisp green to reflect the fresh colors of the summer season, which concluded on their wedding day.

To encourage mingling and conversation, Paula and Brooke allowed guests to choose their own seating among a variety of different table sizes, each featuring their own unique centerpiece. Guests were given delicate boxes of chocolate tied with blue ribbon to thank them for sharing in the wedding celebrating.

Boni & Jose | September 2, 2007

Guest entertainment was of utmost importance at Boni and Jose's wedding, which took place at 707 on Main in Monroe, CT. The couple incorporated several fun and unique touches to ensure that their reception was a party guests would never forget, including a salsa band which provided dance lessons to anyone who wanted to learn.

The couple also chose a clever way to distinguish guest tables by naming them after various celebrities. Guests were given trivia questions to answer about their respective celebrities, which determined who got to take home the table centerpiece. Boni and Jose's wedding day was more than just a celebration of their marriage, however. Surrounded by family and friends, the couple happily announced that they were expecting their first child in just a few months.
