Scheduling

  • What’s your favorite personal wedding style: Classic style with a Pop of Color, whether it is in the flowers, the linens, of napkins
  • What’s your favorite current wedding trend: I love the Rose Gold and mixed metallic that brides are currently playing around with.  Even though the trend of bridesmaids wearing the same color dress but in different styles is declining, I still love it! I just love when brides think outside of the box while maintaining some classical elements.
  • Current favorite color palette: Rose Gold, Copper, Golds, Bronze, Nickel, Silver
  • Favorite time of year for a wedding: Fall
  • Favorite New England destination: The City of Boston.  People wouldn’t necessarily think of Boston as  a destination, but there are many people around the country who have never visited, and there are so many attractions, that Boston has become a great destination city.
  • Party cocktail: I love any type of craft cocktail.  An ice-cold Moscow Mule in a copper mug, or a refreshing Blueberry Mojito in the heat of the summer, is just perfect!
