Bringing dream events to reality in Upstate New York!

#MeetTheMarchands

Although we have been out of the blogging world for a little bit, there is no other wedding to bring it back with a bang! Dominique and Chris, as well as their families were absolutely amazing to work with. They were married at St. Mary’s Church in Waterford, NY with a reception following at the beautiful Glen Sanders Mansion in Scotia, NY. 

Enjoy the gorgeous pics by Rob Spring Photography, thank you for allowing us to showcase them as well! 

Congratulations to the Marchand’s! 

We kicked the decor off as soon as you got to the bride’s family home!

This priceless reaction is what we strive to give every bride when we deliver her flowers!

How dreamy is this bouquet?! 

0005

We try to help brides get creative with props as much as possible! Our chair helped Dominique to create a stunning picture with her bouquet!

St. Mary’s in Waterford is such a traditionally gorgeous church that you don’t need much to dress it up! The aisle markers with greens brightened it up as guests entered along with the larger display to create a dramatic entrance at the altar where the vows were exchanged!

Our very own, Marionna is repping the bridemaids’ bouquets! 

Off to Glen Sanders Mansion! We created a romantic setting with warm colors that shimmered with candles!

We end with a kiss (actually, kisses!)! The head table in the background popped with the gorgeous rose gold sequin overlays! Look how it sparkles in these memorable pictures!

Mazzone Hospitality Wedding Show

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 :)

IMG_3686

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.

IMG_3703

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.

DSC_0828

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

DSC_0814

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.

DSC_0805

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

DSC_0794 DSC_0800DSC_0795

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.

DSC_0852 DSC_0839

DSC_0837

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

DSC_0845

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!

Wedding Round-up

So catch up we must.

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.

DSC_0070Lisa & Chuck’s ceremony was on-site at the Franklin Plaza. This room doesn’t require much fuss, but our sheer pipe and drape background and candle lit aisle help enhance an already gorgeous room.

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.

A princess party would not be complete without an over the top candy bar. Pink chocolate drizzled popcorn, rock candy and candy necklaces sure make turning 5 SWEET!
