Upstate NY Barn Wedding

When Sarah and Wade contacted me about having their wedding in Upstate NY at Sarahs family barn, I was beyond excited. Starting from scratch for a wedding can be daunting but making each detail fit the bride and groom is so rewarding.

We worked together for just over a year, the details all came together and the end results was amazing.

The day started at Sarahs parents place, right next to the barn. Special Occasion Hair Design did an amazing job making each of the woman look fabulous. The dogs even joined in on the fun.

The flower girls during the ceremony almost stole the show, but Sarah and her dad and then of course the Sarah and Wade really made the whole ceremony so special.

The barn set up was gorgeous. A grand entrance, with family style seating within and a dance floor with a covered tent just outside the barn. Perfect place for a party!

The details for this wedding were to die for… The head table had napkins that were embroadiered with their initials. Such a great idea, as they can take them home and use again for all the future family dinner parties.

Champagne makes people happy, champagne bars… even happier.

Orient Express kept everyone moving all night long, including the bride and groom who pretty much didn’t leave the dance floor all night.

Seriously there was not a detail that wasn’t addressed. Such a fun day, great weather, great company and above all an amazing couple.

Rochester NY Wedding: Westminster Chapel and Hall 

Let’s just start off with I love my job. Seriously there is nothing more satisfying than working with a couple for a year+, getting to be a part of their day, and have it go well. It is a trifecta that I will never get sick of.

We had a jammed packed day. My schedule at points was planned in 5 minutes increments, but at the end of the day it went off on time! (One person party over here).

Thank you thank you Shana and Max for letting me be a party of your special day!!!

Rochester New York Event – Hot Summer Nights Fashion Show 

When I moved back to New York, one of the first things I did was look for something to do. I was under the false impression that I would be bored compared to living in DC. This of course could not be farther from the truth, Rochester almost has too much to do, to the point where I feel like I miss put on things if I take a weekend off.

Anyhow, naturally when I found out that Rochester has its own fashion week I bought tickets to three of the shows. Each of the shows were amazing, distinctive and each could have stood on its own. The people that were involved were all from Rochester and the show is to benefit The Center For Youth. I knew that I wanted to be part of such an amazing event.

So fast forward to now, Fashion Week is slated for October 13th to the 18th, and I can NOT wait to be a part of the action. So mark your calendars people it is going to be awesome. More on that later…

This event was our summer kick off, I was involved in the social media coordination. Follow Fashion Week of Rochester on Facebook, @rochesterfasionweek on Instagram and @ROC_fashionweek on Twitter to be up to date on all the behind the scenes action, models, fashion, stylists, boutiques and fashion designers.

Midtown Athletic Club was nice enough to be our hosts, and the weather could not have been better for a pool side party! The event featured Emmy Award winning stylist David Zyla the author of “How to Win at Shopping”  as a guest speaker. I of course was live tweeting, facebooking and instagraming the entire time (it was exhausting… jk jk jk). I finished off the last designer/boutique with 4% battery left, obviously need to get one of those mobile battery chargers.

Can’t wait for the next event, and don’t forget to follow us, I will make it worth your while!
