Before you can dance the night away, you've got to pick the band! Rochester Brass and Electric is an eight-piece band that has been entertaining the New York party scene since 1966. They pride themselves on being extremely "danceable," with an extensive repertoire ranging from Aretha Franklin to Maroon 5, and are fun for guests of every age!


Happy Friday brides!  This week's bridal booty its all about the glitz and glamour.  Two very special brides will have the chance to win a complimentary rental of the stunning "The Middleton" Diamond Drop Earrings or the luxurious "The Marilyn" Vintage Swarovski Crystals Clutch from Adorn.  Adorn provides brides with the opportunity to rent red carpet worthy jewelry and accessories.


Jill & Brian chose Bolton Landing for its breathtaking combination of mountains and water. The organic beauty of the setting created the serene ambiance for the couple to say their “I do’s.” Jill & Brian opted for a preppy decor theme with plenty of eclectic accents: “We adopted a multi-scaled ‘stripe’ motif to juxtapose tailored, nautical elegance against a more unstructured, whimsical charm,” the couple explains.


A truly unique New York State nuptial celebration calls for an unrivaled sense of decor to set the scene and a fantastic venue to tie everything together. Our picks for keeping things lovely and local? Experience Events and Longfellows in Saratoga!


Accented by a naturally intimate backyard setting, a playful garden party celebration comes to life in this quaint jack & jill engagement party shoot, brimming with vintage-inspired design.


Ellen and Andrew's engagement was the perfect reflection of their personalities and their unique love story! The loving pair kept the scene simple and natural with crisp shades of white and verdant greens, and even set up a sweet picnic to keep the look playful.

We also love the way Ellen even brought her passion for painting into the shoot by bringing her easel along as a personal prop. Both Ellen and Andrew just let themselves be natural in the gorgeous setting as their amazing photographer snapped away!


Happy Friday brides! For today’s bridal booty we are offering something to cozy up to and share with your special someone. Love & Tea, based in Vermont, handcrafts their loose-leaf teas from some of nature's finest herbs. Your mind, body, and soul will thank you after just one sip. All herbs are locally grown from small, family-owned organic farms, rooted in Vermont’s nutrient-rich soil; or if you’re in the mood for a bit of a pick-me-up, try one their green or black teas, imported exclusively from exotic lands around the world.


Wanting a wedding palette that was anything but ordinary, Shannon & Obi opted for a tantalizing combination of regal violet, teal & burnt orange to make their collection of rustically dainty details truly pop.



The pairing of a fabulous venue and a fabulous event designer is just what every New York state couple needs to make their nuptials totally picture-perfect. Set the stage for romance by booking the the Esperanza Mansion - and then make sure you get the look of your dream with help from Deborah DePasquale Designs!


Textures & tones blossom, amidst traditional palette of creamy whites whilst stormy blues add a little something new.
