You know those old friends that you haven’t seen in years, but once you get together, it’s like no time has passed at all? For me, Hillary was one of those people. Hillary and I were good buds in high school and through college, but as our different majors and extracurricular activities started taking up a lot of our time, it got harder and harder to keep in touch. After college, we kind of lost touch as she was getting her Masters Degree and Tom and I had moved to the left coast. But, after Tom and I moved back, Hillary and I reconnected and it was like no time had passed at all, which is the BEST! I was so honored when she decided to have me help coordinate her wedding.
When I first sat down with her and James to discuss their wedding plans back in April, I was super impressed by how much they had already accomplished, and her sweet mom was already hard at work on the design and florals, so they really only needed help in the month leading up to the wedding… putting together the timeline, making sure all the i’s were dotted, and t’s were crossed – so that’s where I came in!
Although I certainly can’t take any credit for the creative direction– that was all Hillary and her momma Doris — I did want to share the pretty pictures by Carly Romeo & Co.! Hillary and James’ wedding was in December, so they wanted it to feel wintery, but not christmas-y. They incorporated beautiful rich reds, soft greens, blushes, mixed metals, and a lot of candlelight and I think they nailed their desired look! It turned out amazing.
The escort card board was my one bit of design contribution!
Thank you so much Hillary & James for letting me play a role in your day! And I’m SO glad that we’ve been able to reconnect! Wine and charcuterie again soon?
