Real Wedding: Sparkle in the Mountains Reception

5 Nov

Here is the beautiful reception follow up to Cherrie and Jorge’s Stone Manor Country Club wedding. They wanted to infuse beautiful textures and sparkle to create a sexy and romantic reception all tied together. I loved having Michelle from Meant to Be Calligraphy work on these large Mirror Seating Chart which sat surrounded by floating candles and special La Tavola Linens. Inside the tent we mixed La Tavola textured linens on rectangle and round tables with an assortment of tall and low centerpieces. The binding tie being that everything was lit in a beautiful ambient glow of candles.

Real Wedding Ceremony and Featured! Cherrie and Jorge

3 Nov

Cherrie and Jorge wanted something so special and unique that I really took pleasure in creating their sparkle filled and romance laced wedding day. They were married in the fall of 2013 at Stone Manor Country Club in Maryland with a small intimate wedding filled with candle light and sparkly lights. Their wedding was featured earlier this year on Style Me Pretty that you can see Here .

Cherrie wanted the colors of her wedding to be hues of dusty lilac and pink and accents of sparkle and silver. They were married under a large tree next to the Manor House. The bride carried a textured purple bouquet with ranunculus and roses while the maids for lilac in a beautiful chiffon material. guests sprinkled the couple with lavender as they walked down the aisle as man and wife!

Real Wedding: A lesson Learned

11 Jul

Last year, Robert’s & Co. Events learned a valuable lesson that even planners have moments in life that can threaten to get in the way of even the most well laid plans. As I drove to the church for the rehearsal on the friday night before this wedding last year, I received a devastating call that my mother had had a massive stroke and was being rushed to the hospital in Florida. At Roberts & Co. we have protocols in place that keep a backup in case something like this happens but in the case of this wedding, I did not feel comfortable leaving our clients behind just moments before their rehearsal and VERY large wedding. We worked out a 5 am flight for Sunday morning after talking with doctors and getting the go ahead that if we stayed for the wedding my mom would be ok until Sunday.  We worked through the day of the wedding with the support and help of an amazing vendor team who understood I needed moral support, and kept a smile on my face for our clients and their parents. They were never the wiser (until now! ha!), and we had a very successful and amazing wedding.

The moral of this story is that you should build a team around you that you trust, not only your planner but the caterer, florist, photographer, ect. Your vendors should support each other, be team players, and always put the best interest of the wedding first. Without such a great team that Molly and Mike chose, that day in limbo before I could get to my mother could have been so much worse and so much harder for everyone.

Mike and Molly were such a joy to work with from the beginning. They always came to meetings with smiles and full of love which is so refreshing when planning can be stressful on so many couples. They wanted a vibrant affair at Newton White Mansion with great food, music, and a party that people would not stop talking about. I can do nothing but rave about most of our vendors (not only for the above reason, but because they all rock!) Big thank you to Vesic Photography for the beautiful photos and to Lisa at Petals and Promises for the most beautiful Peonies I have ever seen. They were so vibrantly red and lush!
