A House Full of Love

Laura and Brad are married!!! It was truly a perfect weather day with a little breeze and warm air. When you put the setting of Castle Hill in Ipswich in the mix, you cannot help but have a great day.

I’ve been lucky to work with Laura and her lovely mother Beverly, throughout the entire planning. It is great to work with women that really know what they want! It brought out the creative person in me to such a level!

I was also struck with how lovely and warm everyone was. Especially the bridal party. My interaction with the men is usually not as involved as the women and this was no exception. But the men I did engage in conversation were so friendly and helpful. I have to put a special shout out to Laura’s cousin Geoffrey Silvius. He was the herder of guests, the ultimate seater of guests a reader in the ceremony and the bringer of sandwiches to the After Party. Thank you so much for your help! It truly does mean a lot when you have great friends in the bridal party that can help!

Laura had a lovely palette of graphite and pink which we coordinated with everything from the Save the Date to the flowers, to the linens, to the invitation and pretty much everything else in between! Being avid Red Sox fans, we had nice elegant touches with the table numbers also having names of players on their dream roster, Cracker Jack and the Pièce de résistance, a Fenway Park scoreboard Groom’s Cake with matching cookies for the guests to take home!

Their vendor list boasted the best of the best and it truly was my pleasure to work with ALL of them. I always believe in teamwork and this, was a dream roster!!

This past Saturday really defines WHY I do what I do. I really do believe it is an honor to be a part of a couple’s special day. Laura’s Matron of Honor Jesi, really gave a beautiful toast which was so heartfelt and had so much love. In fact, there was a lot of that in the Great House at Castle Hill that day and I think it will be a wedding many people will remember for a long time. Don’t ever forget WHY we do what we do. It’s because it’s our passion and we love it!!!

Congrats Laura and Brad! (And thanks to MOB Beverly for your careful editing!! I ALWAYS appreciate it and I will miss it with my other clients!!!!!)
