Celebrate your own Bling!

















I had the good fortune of going to Mo√ęt & Chandon’s
100th Birthday at Lady Liberty, where they
launched the special edition bottle encrusted with
Swarovski crystals.
One of my brides was interested serving Bling water
also adorned with crystals.
But at $50 a bottle …I thought,
Why don’t you make your own?

I found a great solution for

The Crystal words can make a great addition to just about any thing!

HALLOWEEN IN NEWPORT












I took Jennifer and Christopher to the 6th Annual Ballard Park Pumpkin Tour.
What a wonderful fall experience!!!! This is a great collaboration of so many community groups. Ballard Park's quarry meadow gets transformed into a magnificent blooming garden of lights when thousands of Christmas tree lights, luminaries, and gobos and up lights enrich the park's three-acre quarry meadow, which includes a vernal pond, rock wall and groves of trees. And it’s free! But donations are graciously accepted. To find out about other events and party's go to www.gonewport.com

Shave The Date!

Molly and Gabe will be married on Jamestown Island, in garden of a private estate on..... well you now know the date!

Setting aside their magnetic smiles, wouldn’t this “Save the Date” postcard make you want to go to this wedding?

Do have fun with your “save the date” cards. They can pre set the tone of your wedding. When planning a destination wedding, I suggest sending the save the dates out one year in advance and for the invitations 4 months out as a reminder to make hotel reservations.
