Krissi and Andrew

Nestled in the White Mountains sits the historic Mount Washington Hotel with its iconic red roof and breathtaking backdrop. It was the most perfect setting for Krissi and Andrew’s winter wedding. The only things more beautiful then the scenery were the details of the day and of course, the new Mr. and Mrs!

Guests were welcomed to the resort on Friday evening with a cocktail reception. Welcome bags contained a personal note from Krissi and Andrew featuring a watercolor image of the hotel, weekend itinerary and a “Things To Do” for many of the guests who were extending their stay. Each bag was filled with New Hampshire themed goodies like hot cocoa mix and maple candy!

We also included brunch tickets for each guest. I often encourage creating a ticket or voucher to couples who offer a breakfast the next day. This allows the hotel staff to know who is with the wedding party and keep an accurate headcount for the tab.


To achieve the all white esthetic Krissi was dreaming of we had to do a few bandaid fixes and camouflage the gold undertones of the hotels decor. Thankfully there isn’t much some imagination and good lighting can’t do!

I used wallpaper to disguise the yellow-orange brick fireplace, an easy yet dramatic change. The place cards and table numbers were done on Carrara Marble tiles and the menus were each finished with a silver foil. A custom light design was done in the ballroom to offset the warm yellows and greens and give the room an elegant winter wonderland feel.

Cailin and Mike

These two love birds are just the coolest; with their relaxed Brooklyn style and good vibes only attitude it was easy to help them with the planning and final details of their wedding.

It was fun to collaborate and pull together our ideas to bring their vision to life.  We mixed and matched our styles to play off one another and create a truly unique space.

The venue, a beautiful blank canvas overlooking the Providence River, was transformed using slate, greenery and other natural elements. We turned a public park and empty rooms into spaces that were elegant and eclectic yet comfortable enough for guests to kick off their shoes, grab a 'Gansett and have a good time. The result was amazing.

A Bridal Luncheon in PVD

I've known Lauren and her sister Cailin for a long time, almost 20 years- yikes! I've always been in awe of their style. To say these girls are fashion forward is an understatement. While I was barely surviving the awkward middle school years, Cailin and Lauren effortlessly rocked butterfly clips and could make our school uniform kilt look cool.

When Lauren first contacted me about designing a few things for Cailin's upcoming bridal shower I was flattered and a bit nervous. The pressure was on to impress!

Thankfully the simplistic color palette gave room for an abundance creativity. I was able to pull in different textures and styles to create some unique elements perfect for a modern bride with an eye for design herself.

The attention was in the details and definitely a team effort. With help from Cailin's mom, guests took home favor boxes filled with homemade Italian cookies tied with satin ribbon, adorned with a personalized monogram and the couple's favorite song lyrics.

Steph and Lou

I always cry at weddings. I really can't help it- I just love, love, and there was no holding back the waterworks when one of my oldest friends said "I do" a few weeks ago in Philadelphia.

The tears actually started months earlier when Stephanie asked if I could put my penmanship to work for her wedding. Wasn't it just yesterday that we were taking the short bus to school and playing with beanie babies? How could we be old enough to be talking about weddings? Steph requested calligraphy for the invitations and escort cards and also to create some unique signs for her reception decor. I agreed without hesitation. 

On the big day, everything was picture perfect: from the church to the surprise Mummers dance party, not a single detail was overlooked. It was an honor to have helped with the behind the scenes of the celebration. It was an even bigger honor to have been a guest. Being in the presence of true love between two people and also a group of friends had me feeling all the feels (with and without tears). 

Cheers to you, Steph and Lou!
