The highlight of our week at NYBFW was hands down, the Muse by Berta private viewing. To set the scene, right when we walked in, we were met with a glass of champagne. If anyone knows us, they know champagne is basically our sparkling water. The viewing was on a high-rise rooftop garden. It was literally straight from a dream. Picture cobblestone bricks, florals, greenery, and breathtaking gowns right in the heart of New York City. The setting went perfectly with the theme–a Sicilian love story.
Oh my goodness! Let me tell you about the absolute best bachlorete weekend ever. So, as girls will be girls and running a million different schedules, I wasn’t actually able to have my bachelorette party until 2 weeks before the wedding. There has just been so much going on! But to tell you the truth, I think I would rather have had it closer to the wedding day than further out because of how much fun I was able to have. I would have to admit, I have been super crazy stressed and busy and have been thinking about a million and one different things and the fact that I was able to just let everything go and not worry about one single thing, 2 weeks before the wedding – it was a blessing!
October 10th, 2015 was a big wedding day for BTS Event Management and one that would definitely not disappoint us. We had much to do and many dreams to make come true. One of the weddings that we had this day was at The Phoenician on the Orchid Lawn. It was one of a weeks worth of events for the bride and groom as they practiced their Polish traditions of several parties prior to and after the wedding day. Our main stage though, was on Saturday. The day that they walked down the aisle.
Being a wedding planner, you come across so many different vendors and so much talent. While planning my own wedding, I could think of several different local vendors to design and control my wedding stationary but luck would have it, one of my bridesmaids and best friends has the talent and edge that fits my style 100%. Besides being an Art Director of a Ad Agency in Philadelphia, Erin also is the owner/founder/designer/photographer of Grace and Ardor Co..
Yesterday was such a great day – I picked up my wedding dress! It has been a much anticipated day since I had received the phone call a few weeks back from Mariee Bridal, in Scottsdale, that they had received my dress. I waited a few weeks to go and check it out because my mom just arrived on Wednesday from Philadelphia and I wanted her to see it on me for the first time.
Erica and David are a couple who we had worked with for over a whole year helping to plan their wedding. They came to us with three things that were important to them: food, drinks and music. As far as wedding design and decor, they didn’t have too much in mind at all. Erica, the bride, was sweet and soft spoken. She didn’t have many requests throughout our time working together and was always as laid back as a person could possibly be. The groom, David, really took the lead on the wedding planning details. He created a pinterest board, along with spreadsheets for the guest list and meal choices, and he was always extremely organized and responsive. The two of them really compliment each other well and bring out the best in each other and it certainly was evident on their wedding day!
Our 2015 wedding season is right around the corner and we are so thrilled to have a busy, busy fall. Make sure you stay tuned for more details about each dream come true, fairy tale event. In the meantime, here is a quick flashback at the great summer that BTS Event Management has had thus far!
This past week, we were able to experience something absolutely breathtaking. A place that we only knew of by name and had no real connection to. Those that know of it, know of the beauty and serenity. They know about the peaks and the valley’s, the highs and the lows. The place that I am talking about is none other than Antelope Point Marina – the tourist location of the enormous, man made lake – Lake Powell. First built in 1963, the lake spans over 108,000 square miles in area. We saw less than a quarter of the lake on our visit. IT IS HUGE!!!
