I am just THRILLED to share the amazing wedding of two of the most fabulous brides, Brooke & Lauren! I knew from the very first consultation via Skype with Lauren and their adorable dog Jelly that these two would be SO much fun to work with. While they both live in NYC, they decided on the beautiful Washington Club in Washington, CT as the perfect location for their September wedding, a venue just minutes from where Brooke’s father lives. In fact, their rehearsal dinner was hosted at Brooke’s dad’s amazing house, and the girls were kind enough to invite me and my husband to join them for the pre-wedding festivities, where we got the chance to meet many of their guests.
The brides had both their ceremony and reception at the Washington Club, which was decked out with beautiful lighting and gorgeous, elegant flowers which gave the venue a rustic and quintessentially New England look and feel. The florist even created a custom floral collar for Jelly, who the girls lovingly included within their ceremony. The love that these two so clearly have for each other and the fact that they were surrounded by the most loving, kind and fun friends and family made their wedding day even more special!
From the couple in regards to working with This Modern Love Events;
“We are so delighted to have found Martine as a month-of coordinator. She’s super organized, very on top of deadlines, friendly, and all of our vendors raved about her. They loved working with her as much as we did. Martine did a lot of research and found the vendor for our rentals (linens, etc.), which was a huge thing off of our plate and so so helpful. There were quite a few times where I’d overlooked something or hadn’t thought it all the way through, and Martine took my idea and made it better and more guest & vendor friendly. It was so helpful and needed.
Plus, we had a last minute crisis with the catering company (they had not hired staff) and Martine graciously negotiated the price and handled the deal with the catering manager, which was something she did not have to do. She put together an incredibly detailed timeline of both the wedding day and the days leading up to it, which was helpful to us, the vendors and the wedding party. If you are looking for someone who is super organized, extremely knowledgeable about weddings, and easy to work with, Martine is your woman! If you want someone who will be a bride or groom-zilla on your behalf, look elsewhere. She’s just too nice! Everything we didn’t know to think of, Martine thought of. We can’t say enough good things about her. We love her so much, that we invited her to our rehearsal dinner!! We highly recommend her and our day was seamless, enjoyable and effortless because she was around.”
