Fun Facts:

  1. Music is my therapy
  2. I ‘m pretty obsessed with my dog and normally take 5-10 pictures of him a day.
  3. After buying two wedding dresses for my wedding, most wedding dress shops here in Connecticut cut me off.
  4. I married my husband twice.. I am trying for a third wedding in Vegas..How much fun would it be to renew our vows by Elvis in a little chapel?  It also gives me the chance to wear a Hayley Paige gown.
  5. I normally text my husband after a ceremony to tell him I love him and I am so lucky to have him in my life..yes I am a cheeseball!
  6. I’m a total germaphobe.  If you tell me your sick I will slowly move away and most likely put hand sanitizer on my hands.
  7. If I wasn’t a wedding planner I would most like be a police officer.  I want to help others but, I’m just too emotional to be a cop.
  8. I will start a dance party anywhere good music is playing.  (I try to contain myself at my client’s weddings).
  9. I can’t live without lipgloss..or gum..literally I’m a ghost if I don’t have either of these.
  10. I live on watching the ID channel. The problem is I scare myself into thinking someone’s in the house and then I can’t sleep.

Favorite Venues:

Ugh! This is a hard one!  I love vineyards, private homes and tented weddings best!

Why I Love Weddings:

I love seeing two people celebrate their love. I am a hopeless romantic and nothing is better to me than meeting your soulmate.

 

Lauren

Fun Facts:

  1. I’m addicted to sugar and will never turn down dessert. Especially if it involves chocolate. 
  2. Gilmore girls is my favorite show; I would like to think i’m a mix between Lorelei and Rory. 
  3. I have an obsession with cute office supplies. Back to school season is a dangerous time for me.
  4. Yoga is my jam. I try to take time on the mat whenever I can. 
  5. I should move into target because I basically live there.
  6. I aspire to be a plant mom. until then, i’m still a recovering plant murderer. 
  7. I’m in a book club.
  8. Cooking is not in my skillset. But I love to eat.
  9. I love anything vintage. Gimme all the flea markets + vintage stores.
  10. I’m a calligrapher and would love to bring some fabulous letters into your wedding day. 

Why I Love Weddings:

The storytelling. You can learn so much about a couple’s love story through the various details of their wedding day. 

Favorite Venue:

Well, obviously my favorite venue is the New Haven Lawn Club since that’s where I was married 🙂 but if you’re referring to a venue where we have worked, I would say the Lighthouse Point Carousel in New Haven.
