Mazzone Hospitality Wedding Show

20 Jan

Putting the finishing touches on our next two blog posts, which just so happen to be back to back weddings at The Glen Sanders Mansion. We had the pleasure of participating in a wedding show at GSM yesterday, it was so much fun!

IMG_3702

The place was buzzing with brides-to-be, their fiance’s (who were very good sports!) and  families. It’s always exciting to meet and interact with potential couples, hear their ideas and answer questions. Yesterday was no exception – I’d even go as far to say it was the best show we’ve participated in to date :)

We were so excited to show off some new ivory Rosette linens just added to our rental collection and these romantic twinkle light bottle table numbers.

We were happy to find out from planning Bride’s that the rustic/more nature inspired trends are still going strong! Our soft florals combined with more rugged vessels (mason jars/wooden crates) were well received.

I’ll keep this short and sweet, just wanted to share
some highlights from yesterday,
because we love what we do and hope you think of us
when planning your next event!

Today’s post recap’s Emilie and Zeke’s wedding at the Riverstone Manor. Emilie had a very distinct vision for their ceremony and reception. She was a major help in creating this “collected objects” style.

A beautiful October day for an outdoor ceremony, phew! Rose petals lightly scattered down the aisle with small hydrangea cones tied to every other chair.DSC_0812

Emilie and Zeke’s wedding was our first experience with our now very popular ladder escort card display! Truly a collection of objects (watering cans  used as flower vessels, tea lights, interesting little trinkets) strung together to create the WOW factor when their guests arrived to the tent for cocktail hour.

DSC_0818DSC_0817DSC_0824DSC_0823DSC_0822DSC_0821A few extra detail shots because there were too many great moments to choose from. Textures were layered, everything from burlap to lace, aluminum to baby’s breath to create this industrial yet feminine feel, love it! Even the random pattern of escort paper color just adds to this “shabby chic” style.

Emilie’s bouquet was rich with color, exposed stems and loosely gathered with a delicate scalloped lace.

The bridesmaid’s bouqets were unique, no two the same – but all featured these incredibly rich lush looking flowers. Especially love these deep violet calla lilly’s and roses.

Flower filled teapots and sugar canisters were used as centerpieces. Every table a different container with autumn colored metallic chargers used as a base.

Our favorite little teapot was used on Emilie and Zeke’s sweetheart table.

DSC_0832 DSC_0858 DSC_0833

The gift table featured an elaborate branch centerpiece draped with this vintage crocheted fabric. We created a unique card box using old luggage. There was also a memory table with images that were special to the couple.

So many special and unique moments from this celebration, like I said before Emilie really wanted their wedding to feel personal and I’d say it was a success!

This is a perfect example of digesting wedding trends but essentially making them your own. Up next is Alicia & Bob’s wedding at the Glen Sanders Mansion. If you are a bride-to-be, be sure to come visit us this Sunday, January 19th at the Mazzone Hospitality wedding show – we’ll be set up at GSM!

Lisa & Chuck were married in October (of 2012) at The Franklin Plaza Ballroom. Lisa’s bouquet was made up primarily of crisp white roses and calla lilly’s with pops of purple! You’ll see these colors repeat in the details of the wedding.

The bridesmaid’s bouquet were so chic and simple! More of an accessory with its embellished crystal wrap than your average bouquet.

If you follow our events, you know we love a candy station! Vessels of every shape and size embellished with matching ribbon to give Lisa & Chuck’s guest an extra special treat. Gummi bear anyone?

Up next is Emilie & Zeke’s vintage wedding celebration.
We’re so excited for the 2014 wedding season to begin,
and can’t wait to share more spectacular events with you.

Nature of Love

19 Aug

Hello party people! Its been quite some time since our last post but we’ve got a lot of great events to catch you up on.

Starting with this wedding from last September. (I know we are bad, bad bloggers!)  Elizabeth and Peter were married  at the Gideon Putnam in Saratoga with a theme that perfectly tied in with their surroundings. Laura Obscura Imagery was on hand to capture this beautiful day,
some of her images are featured below.

DSC_0605Elizabeth’s bouquet was classic white with pearl and burlap wrapped stems.

DSC_0616A detail shot of the bridesmaid’s  bouquets. Soft combination of colors,
perfect for that transition from Summer to Fall!

DSC_0622

DSC_0625It couldn’t have been a more perfect day for an outdoor ceremony. Mother nature rarely cooperates, but when she does we can create beautiful back drops such as this! Made of birch branches on our pipe and drape, Elizabeth and Peter were married on the front lawn of the Gideon.

DSC_0627Ceremony details; brass buckets filled with florals to line the aisle.

DSC_0632Individual seed packets took the place of traditional escort cards!

Birch stumps served as votive stands on our burlap and lace overlays.  Each table was named a after a different tree, combined with moss, rocks and branches. The bright roses and lillies help soften these rustic centerpieces.

Summer will be gone before you know it (sigh) what better way get you in the mood for fall than to recap Elizabeth & Peter’s perfect day. There is SO much more where this came from. Stay tuned for more posts to come!

Simple Elegance

So simple and intimate, this wedding truly exhibits how a little can go
a very long way!

This Bride & Groom were sent to us by Katie O’ of Katie O’• Weddings & Events. Katie has a fantastic way of pairing couples that are a perfect fit for Party with Mia, Vanessa and Doug were no exception.

Their wedding was held in East Berne at Vanessa and Doug’s home. This was a first for us, being that we were not on location the day of the wedding – but Katie and her team did a great job transporting the decor and setting it up beautifully!

8M8A3462We cannot thank Chelsea Ahl of Chelsea Ahl Photography for the gorgeous images she captured of this day. You have to see her blog of Vanessa and Doug’s wedding, it’s so intimate it truly feels like you’re apart of their special day.
8M8A3918A succulent boutonniere for Doug, wrapped with raffia. Vanessa’s bouquet was warm and rustic, wrapped with burlap.

8M8A3417Bridesmaid bouquet: hydranges, roses and calla lillies.

IMG_9434The reception was so effective with a clean white look with subtle
hints of color and burlap texture.

This wedding looked like a ton of fun and a celebration
that was truly about the love for these two people!
Thanks for tuning in to this short but good one,
were headed off  to RPI for their BIG RED FREAKOUT  today.

Next up on the blog is an incredibly charming wedding at the Gideon Putnam.

Do you believe in magic?

Where do I begin with today’s post?!
These beyond frigid temps have left me longing for the days of summer
and the backyard celebrations that took place in 2012.

Misha and Sergio’s wedding was unlike any other. Misha’s Aunt’s backyard was transformed into an enchanted oasis for wedding guests, every turn had a hint of charm. I must say all the personal touches by the Bride and her family really helped to complete this magical space.

DSC_0448

How awesomely bright is Misha’s bouquet?!

DSC_0452Exposed stems wrapped in burlap and lace, the epitome of rustic glamour.

bridesmaidbouquetHow’s this for a switch up? Misha’s bridesmaids carried all white bouquets against their pink dresses. We loved the contrast!

IMG_0864These hand painted signs were nailed to the trees, directing guests to different areas of the celebration!

ceremonyWe lined the pathway to the ceremony with branches and rose petals.
How adorable is this sign?!

DSC_0571_2We were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the bride walking down the aisle.

cocktailhourOozing charm, the large trees served as the perfect backdrop for cocktail hour!

DSC_0485Paper lanterns were hung along the ceiling of the tent with LED lights inside,
combined with the twinkle lights along outside… talk about romantic!

centerpiece1

Family style tables with our ivory pin tuck linens and burlap overlays
combine texture and elegance.
centerpiece2We had so much fun choosing a variety of containers for the small centerpieces. We tied mason jars with twine and wrapped buckets with burlap
to create truly unique vessels.

DSC_0550DSC_0537

The second style centerpiece’s were tall vases with branches,
orchids and hanging votives.

Clearly I had a really hard time choosing just a few great details from this wedding, but there were just too many to choose from.
Thanks for catching up with us today, stay warm!
