What a Weekend

We had a fantastic time at Shelburn Farms on Saturday and had the opportunity to meet some really great couples (and moms, too)!  The Coach Barn was buzzing with brides and vendors who were taking it all in.  As usual Krista Washburn and her fabulous team put together an event to remember for this year’s Wedding Affair.  The Marie Antoinette theme was complete with dancers in period garb, a spa full of talented make-up artists, a decked-out lounge, delectable food & drinks and a day full of seminars with tips for brides and grooms-to-be.  I was invited to conduct a seminar on “Practical Planing” which is right up my alley!  The tent for the fashion show was a sight to be seen draped with fabric and pink paper peonies hung from the chandeliers.  As always it was a wonderful end to a truly inspired event!

This centerpiece features artichokes and kale for a foody element.

The fashion show tent was packed and the models looked gorgeous.

The runway was SO cool!


Is it possible that I am already looking forward to next year’s show?!  The New York and Cape Cod/Nantucket brides are in for a treat!
