Ashley and Bill – December 1, 2012

Ashley and Bill were married in Saratoga on December 1, 2012.  Their ceremony took place at the Christ Episcopal Church and their reception was at the Canfield Casino in Saratoga Springs’ Congress Park.  I had the distinct honor and privilege of working with Ashley and Bill as their wedding planner which meant I got to go on this amazing planning journey with them.  They live out of state so all of the work was done long distance, but with a bride with this much style and confidence it was a piece of cake to put all of these delicious details together for them.
From the designer gown to the exotic flowers to the bright little clementines, Ashley had a super creative vision for her wedding that could easily rival the concepts of most high end event designers.  She chose a color palette of pinks, corals, and oranges, and balanced their brightness with grays and fun patterns.  There was a beautiful chevron pattern carried through the event from the flower girls’ skirts to the napkins on the head table.  Ashley chose a gunmetal sequin table cloth for some of the guest tables, and even used a section of wallpaper for the runner down the head table.  The blend of colors and patterns in the room was just gorgeous.  And the flowers for this wedding were just divine!  The girls’ bouquets were gorgeous and the centerpieces on the tables were beautifully set in white milk glass containers.  There was definitely a lot of swooning going on at this wedding!
Joining me on this event was a star studded team of vendors.  First I have to thank Tracey Buyce for her photography expertise in capturing all of these beautiful images.  And of course I have to give a big shout out to floral designer David Michael Schmidt of Renaissance Floral Design for all of his creative flower and design work.  Catering was provided by Connie and the ever amazing staff at Mazzone Catering, and guests danced their tails off to music played by the NYC band Phase One.  Hair and makeup was done beautifully, as always, by the ladies at Make Me Fabulous, and the gorgeous cake you see below was made by Villa Italia.  I also have to thank Clifton Park Rentals, Premiere Transportation for the guest shuttles, and Advantage Transportation Group for the vintage car the bride and groom rode in from the church to the Casino.
You may have seen in an earlier post that this wedding was recently featured on Style Me Pretty.  I am so happy to see that everyone loves this wedding as much as I do.

Of course I never would have had the chance to be a part of all of this if it hadn’t been for Ashley and Bill finding me way back in 2011.  Thank you so much Ashley and Bill for choosing me as your wedding planner!  You guys are amazing people and I hope to stay connect with you for years and years!!  xoxo
