On Vacation from February 15-22

Happy Valentine's Day!! Just a quick announcement to anyone who may try to reach me this upcoming week. I'll be heading out of the country on vacation for a week from February 15-22, with extremely limited email access. I will respond to all inquiries when I return, and in addition, I'll hopefully be able to post some photos of my adventure like this:

Can anyone guess where I'm going?? =) I'm really excited to take a nice vacation before things get busy in the 2011 wedding season!

Affordable & Luxurious: White by Vera Wang

I absolutely love the new line, White by Vera Wang, which debuts today at David's Bridal. All of the dresses are gorgeous, and are anywhere between $600-$1400. The amount of detail is incredible for such affordable prices! The one thing that it makes me curious about though is for all of the brides who purchased gowns from the Vera Wang bridal collection (not from David's Bridal), and whether they are upset that there is this new line of MUCH cheaper gowns that also have the Vera Wang name. Would you be upset?

Either way, I still love this line, and I think it's wonderful that more brides will have access to great wedding gown designs because the price falls within their budget.

Aren't they gorgeous? I especially love the strapless organza dress with hand cut-bias flange skirt in blush, and it also comes in ivory and soft white!

Arielle and Steve's Smith Barn Wedding Photos by Emily Stern Photography

Arielle and Steve were such a sweet couple to work with, and I absolutely loved coordinating their June 2010 wedding at Smith Barn in Peabody, MA. It was filled with personal touches, and lots of stoneware bowls handmade by the bride! All of the wedding details are described in detail here in my wedding recap.

Vendors included Pyara Spa & Salon for hair and makeup, catering by Green Olive Catering, bouquets by Bow Street Flowers, and the following professional photos were taken by Emily Sterne Photography.

Fun fact about this wedding: it was the first time I've seen a group sing-a-long at a wedding! It was really unique and totally fit in with the couple's musical talents.

Chrissy and Pete's Habitat Wedding Photos by Punam Bean

I am so excited to share photos from Chrissy and Pete's June 2010 wedding at Habitat. It was photographed by Punam Bean, who is seriously talented, and super sweet in person! Punam photographs weddings all over the world, so I was so grateful to have the opportunity to work with her. Fun fact: she actually just moved to Massachusetts!

Some amazing vendors were involved in this wedding: East Meets West for catering, Dani Wagener for makeup, and Winston Flowers. To read more details about the wedding, check out my previous blog entry here. Now, onto the photo eye candy. Enjoy!
