Meet the blogging team!


This past August myself along with some of Connecticut’s finest put together a dream shoot at The Goodwin Hotel in Hartford, CT.  It’s a stunning boutique hotel complete with vibrant colors and stylish furniture. It was the perfect backdrop for a styled shoot. We spent countless hours planning every detail and the end result had the entire team beyond excited to share. We all decided this was a wonderful opportunity to have a photo/video release party where we could showcase our hard work to the public including other vendors in the industry, family, friends and press.

We could not have asked for a better turnout and so much support! Everyone was treated to small bites provided by The Goodwin Hotel, truffles by The Candy Brigade and a fantastic bourbon tasting by The Long Island Cigar and Bourbon Experience.

Guests danced the night away to the sounds of DJ Melee and Audio Media Solutions created ambiance with some amazing lighting. Epic Filmmakers offered their slow-motion experience for guests to try out which provided hours of fun! 

The show stopper to the evening was when we released the video for everyone to enjoy.  It was such an amazing moment to see everyone’s reactions and then announce that our shoot had been picked up to be featured on Aisle Perfect! Click here to see the feature and watch the video below.

Candace Jeffery Photography was on hand to capture the night and all of the amazing vendors and honored guests. Here is a glimpse into this epic evening. Click here to read more about our shoot on Candace Jeffery’s blog.
