Chinese New Year Inspired Wedding

January 28, 2017. Category: Chinese New Year, inspiration, real wedding, weddings

Happy Chinese New Year! Did you know that 2017 is a Fire Rooster Year. According to Chinese astrology, each year is associated with one of five elements as well as an animal, this year is a fire year, the last Fire Rooster Year was 1957.

 See how one of our favorite couple’s celebrated their wedding and the Chinese New Year all at once.

The couple knew that we would not be able to tell everyone just how special they were, so they  decided to write love notes to each of their guests. They put the notes in red envelopes embellished with a traditional Chinese symbol for “double happiness” hand-stamped in gold ink.

As a fun way to welcome their guests to the reception, the couple performed a traditional Lion Dance, which also served as a welcome to the New Year, complete with three elaborate colored lions.

Destination Wedding at Round Hill Montego Bay Jamaica

January 25, 2017. Category: destination wedding, real wedding, wedding planner, weddings

We couldn’t think of a better place to kick off our 2017 wedding season, than at the beautiful Round Hill Montego Bay Resort and Villas in Jamaica! With its private enclave of luxury villas, boutique oceanfront rooms and lush tropical hillside it really is the perfect setting for a destination wedding. From understate luxury, rich history and old world glamour it is hard not to want to get married here!

We have been fortunate to plan weddings at Round Hill throughout the years, and as we get ready for the wedding we have this weekend, it is hard not to look back at one of our favorite couple’s destination wedding.

National Popcorn Day

Did you know that January 19th is National Popcorn Day?! This time honored treat is often enjoyed in movie theaters, baseball games and almost everywhere in-between. From plain, buttered, to caramelized or even dipped in chocolate the possibilities are endless.

We loved how we were able to incorporate this delicious treat in a recent fall wedding, especially since the groom was a former baseball star – Time to get popping!
