A Surprise Party, Part III

Okay, you've seen the inspiration board and the invitation sketches and I'm hoping that you love the concept as much as I did. Organic, glamorous, intimate, warm and modern. All wrapped up into one big ball of pretty. Two of the areas that we really wanted to concentrate on for our Surprise Party were the bar area - which would include a fun pink champagne +...

A Surprise Party, Part II

Once you have your vision nailed down, it's time to start conceptualizing each piece. Starting with the paper goods, as it's those invitations that have to be popped into the mail before the rest of the party comes to fruition. And the paper pieces for this wedding ended up taking center stage. When we were conceptualizing everything, we really felt inspired by watercolor and calligraphy. Handcrafted pieces that addes a sense of art to our...

A Surprise Party, Part I

We have such a treat for you today. It's a party, of course. But it's so much more than that because today, we're really breaking it apart, getting down to the nitty gritty and showing you how to design a beautiful celebration from inspiration to the last toast. Starting the way we always start on SMP...with an inspiration board. Because we whole heartedly believe that whether you are planning a wedding, or a surprise birthday party like this one, that having a refined inspiration board will...

Connecticut Wedding at the Florence Griswold Museum by Uplift Photography

We tend to get really excited when we see great vendors popping up in the credits of a wedding. And with this particular number, we knew, without even looking at the beautiful images by Uplift Photography, that it was going to be a stunner. We would expect nothing less from Sarah True + one of our very own SMP'ers, Abby Capalbo of TRUE Event. Their effortless style...

Stonington Wedding by TRUE Event

To say Sarah of TRUE Event is as sweet as they come would be the understatement of the year. To say that she is be-YOND talented would be the understatement of the century. So when she teams up with the likes of Hana Floral Design, Paper Moss, Jennie Fresa and...

Connecticut Wedding by Justin Marantz

I feel like this next wedding is a page out of some great romance film. Like Leonardo Di Caprio should be smoking a cigar and Reese Witherspoon should be rocking a sequined gown, riding an elephant in the background. Okay, maybe not an elephant but doing something fabulously glamorous. It's the kind of wedding that just sweeps you up and makes you fall in love all over again. Thanks to the insanely beautiful photography by...

DIY Ribbon Wands and Fabric Yo-Yo’s

Since I write a wedding blog for a living, the easiest way to come up with ideas for our DIY projects (which every wedding should have) was to scour our own archives! We have some of the coolest stuff tucked inside our DIY category, so finding inspiration was beyond easy. And although it looks like an incredibly lavish wedding, we found a MILLION ways to cut costs and to stay within our budget. Take for example our linens. Rather than purchasing expensive table linens, we chose to highlight ONE...

From Inspiration to Wedding: The Wedding Film

You're definitely going to need to grab a couple of tissues for this next feature. You know what? Grab the whole box. Libby's wedding photographs were truly gorgeous but to see the wedding really come to life thru the film is like being there all over again. Elysium did an absolutely beautiful job capturing the spirit of the day, the charm of Libby and Patrick's personality and the total style that went into every last detail. I've literally watched this clip 20 times and every time I do...I...

From Inspiration to WEDDING: The Photography

There is so much that I want to tell you about this wedding...about how even though not everything turned out exactly as we envisioned, it was still complete perfection. About how we had to let ideas go to the wayside, we had to comprise, we had to think really creatively...and yet it all still turned out beautiful. But you know what, there is no better way to tell the story than with the photographs that...

From Inspiration to WEDDING: The Design

Now for the REALLY good stuff. I've probably looked at these images a thousand times. And every time I do, I see something new. Something great. This is the wedding of Libby and Patrick. The wedding that Sarah True designed and styled, that we spent hours and hours on the phone dreaming about, that we built with love for two very special people. And despite the fact that we were literally faced against a...

From Inspiration to WEDDING: The Flood

So before we get to all of the wedding goodness, the story wouldn't be complete without telling you about the little (and by little, I mean HUGE) road bump that we encountered just days before the wedding. This is actually for all of you brides out there that are petrified of all of the "what ifs..." You know what I mean. What if it rains, what if it's too hot/too cold/too windy, what if I forget my vows, what if the flowers wilt, what if no one dances, what if, what if, what if. Well, I am...
