Spring - Summer 2018 Deadline: January 15, 2018



This past Summer and now Fall have really sailed by. So many beautiful weddings took place with the gathering of families and friends, touching vows, silly moments, breathtaking decor and so many happy couples. We’re in New England, so barn locations are still holding strong in popularity as well as tent weddings in various locations. Ballrooms in numerous sizes and locations give great options for weddings such as country clubs, hotels with city views and even mountain tops. We’ve noticed the surge in popularity of food trucks and mobile pizza kitchens with their delicious food options for full receptions as well as late-night bites. There’s been an abundance of beautiful cakes, dessert tables and the still popular Signature Drinks. We’ve also noticed the family pet becoming a popular guest at weddings. We’ve enjoyed the opportunity to view so many, in person, as well as the finished weddings from photographers and videographers. I’m always looking at the emotion, the story, the faces of the couple, as they say their vows, as they take to the dance floor for their first dance or as they take in a quiet moment together. The one thing I can say is that it’s really all about the couple…it’s what you want. A thoughtful, well planned celebration that’s all your style, that will allow you and your guests to enjoy the moments that unfold throughout the day. And who knows…maybe you’ll find your wedding featured in the pages of The Wedding Day Sourcebook! In this issue you’ll find some Real New England Weddings that will give you inspiration as well as story of a last-minute rescue that reminds us that it’s good to have some great connections and wonderful wedding professionals on your side! On a sad note, we say goodbye to the long-standing Springfield Marriott Ballroom, in downtown Springfield, who has been the location for hundreds and hundreds of weddings, parties, galas and more. They have always been amazing over the years. We look forward to the future and what the space will become. The Fall and Winter Bridal Show season is upon us. You must plan to attend a few events during your planning process. It’s great to meet wedding professionals in person, check out their style, their services and personalities….and just have fun! Having the right team with the right fit on your day can make all the difference in the world.

So…we hope to meet you at a bridal show or event! Happy Planning!
