This setting is right out of a Gatsby movie. Such gorgeous grounds and the ballroom is perfect. The Merion Cricket Club, located in Haverford, PA, is a members only club, but if you are so lucky to host an event there, you will be well taken care of by Joanne Jackson, Director of Catering. She was fabulous to have on our team!
While in France, I traveled to Monet’s home in Giverny. What a sweet little French country town. This was one of the most inspirational visits of the summer. I am an art lover and creator and the feelings I had from being in his place were overwhelming. Standing in his room of art hanging on the walls just as it was when he lived there. The many different varieties of flowers all planted naturally , no formality to the plantings at all, impressionistic in style. His country home, painted in country French colors. It was all quite perfect and lovely.
While there, I was using an app from the NYC MMA that would create your image like an impressionist painting. It was so much fun. You can see some of the images below were created with the app.
I was lucky enough to spend the month of July In Italy. While there, I visited a favorite vineyard of Moore Brothers; Corzano e Paterno in San Casciano. It is the kind of experience where you are traveling down a dirt road wondering if you are in the right place, then you come upon a bucolic setting. Aljosha and Toni are the owners. The farm is not only a vineyard but they also produce olive oil and the most amazing cheese. They have guest houses. I am planning on returning for a 2 month internship during my slow season. Will be such a wonderful experience and I will learn a few new things. Why not!
I cannot believe it has already been over a month since our wedding. I don’t even know where to start. Thank you for helping us put together our dream wedding. The whole day was amazing and turned out better than I ever could have hoped for. The decor was jaw-droppingly beautiful. You truly created a magical feel in the ballroom at the Cricket Club. The details were incredible: the flowers, the candles, the linens, the mismatched chairs; everything was perfect. I knew you were good at what you do from the beginning and over the course of the year that we worked on the wedding together just re-confirmed what capable and talented hands we were in. Even knowing this, having it all come together the way that it did was beyond my wildest dreams. You truly are like a fairy godmother. I wish I could re-live the day over and over again. I keep trying to think up events I can plan so I can work with you again! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This is one of the most gorgeous cakes ever made. Zoe at Whipped is incredible and Alison Conklin used her incredible eye to create the image. What a team! The cake inside was an unexpected Funfetti – a nod to the B&G’s sense of fun!
This is such a wonderful idea. For our tree themed wedding, I had an artist hand paint the image of the tree from the invitation on deckle edge watercolor paper. The guests then provided their own thumbprint in green ink as the leaves, adding their initials with a thin brown maker. The B&G’s name and date were calligraphed as artwork. It is framed and hanging in their NYC apartment.
