Rustic Wedding at the Washington Club in Washington, CT

Dog in Wedding

 

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.”

Whimsical Wedding at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven, CT

07_Cocktail Hour-0484

 

This blog post has been a long time coming!   With the start of 2016, I want to relive some of the wonderful weddings I had the honor of being part of in 2015.  And what better way to start it off then with featuring one of my favorite couples to work with!  These two were the sweetest, most charming guys with an incredibly fun and warm group of friends and family.  Their wedding was SUCH a blast and I’m so excited to finally share the photos of their big day at Lighthouse Point Park!

The wedding ceremony kicked off at Christ Church in New Haven and then guests were transported to the amazing Lighthouse Point Park (also in New Haven) for the wedding reception complete with cocktails, costumes and the infamous historical carousel, which guests enjoyed all night long!

From the couple in regards to working with This Modern Love Events;

“Martine is the BEST. We really cannot recommend her highly enough. I was initially skeptical of the wedding planner thing, but I have to say that every meeting we had with her she thought of something that we had not or suggested a fix to a problem that we never would have thought of. It was crucial to have her input throughout the process. Also, setting up meetings with her was a great way to keep ourselves on schedule. I almost feel like I need to have two reviews here though because, while her services were valuable during the long-term planning and in the months leading up to the wedding, her help in the last few weeks before the wedding and her day-of services were a whole other level of awesomeness.

She is like a machine! She kept track of so many details and was four steps ahead of everyone and everything. Our actual wedding day went off without any problems, and I really believe it was primarily due to Martine’s help and guidance on the day of. We were able to just sit back and experience the day. It’s like having a genie on hand that you can just ask to go deal with some problem that’s developing or some scheduling issue that has arisen. Really great stuff. I should add in all of this that Martine’s really a pleasure to work with. She’s not overbearing or crazy, even when she’s organizing and directing all this stuff. That being said, she was also willing to play bad cop with vendors when necessary, which I am thankful for because I am not super good at that. But with us, we always felt like she was on our team – or maybe a calm and wise coach for our team. We really highly recommend Martine for whatever wedding or event you need help with. She is the real deal.”
