Elegant Connecticut Wedding

Thanks to photographer Justin Marantz for this submission to us via Two Bright Lights. Katie Saeger, a writer for our site, told me about this gorgeous wedding and we “ooh’d and aah’d” quite a bit over the lavish details!

This autumn wedding provided us tons of luxurious inspiration for not only weddings but dinner parties, cocktail gatherings, and all sorts of events. Renata Serafin & Spence Patterson were married at the Eolia Mansion in Harkness State Park in Waterford, Connecticut. A gorgeous venue fitting for a bride who wanted florals to stand out at her wedding!

The flowers truly impressed us as she pulled together traditional fall colors of gold and sage green but also pops of light blue. Soft feathers in gray, black, and white found their way into not only the bouquets but also the bride’s luxe Louboutin shoes.

I mean, really, what’s not to love about a Starbucks groom’s cake?! Adore! We hope you loved this eye candy too.

Autumn Dessert Table


Autumn Dessert Table It is starting to feel like fall with all of the kids going back to school, and nights getting just a little bit cooler.  I personally love fall, because it means the smells of apple cider, cinnamon and pumpkin, follow you almost everywhere you go.  That's why when Kathleen who is the owner of Sweet Table Chicago sent me this Autumn sweets table, I started craving a hot … { read more }
