Tuesday Shoesday

Hello, hello! Happy Tuesday! In case you don’t know, Sarah and I have big spots in our hearts for shoes. BIG. I love them so much, I dedicated a entire day on my little blog for them, and now I am bringing that love over here as well. Because really, does one ever tire from seeing gorgeous shoes? Correct answer: no. So for the first installment of Tuesday Shoesday on the TRUE Event blog – I bring to you, the perfect Kate Spade TRUE Event shoe.

Caroline and Alexi’s Invitations by Paper Moss

We are firm believers that invitations set the tone for any event, and the paper accessories provide the perfect opportunity to tell your story as a couple through the details, which is why we love working with the lovely ladies of Paper Moss. They definitely didn’t disappoint with Caroline & Alexi’s invitation suite, and we are so excited to share them with you!
From Emily of Paper Moss…We love a lot of color combos at Paper Moss, but navy, aqua and yellow has become one of our favorites this year! With a great color combination to start with, there is nothing we love more at Paper Moss than adding special personal touches to the invites, and this suite was full of them! One of our favorites was the airplane – a hand drawn icon that included their wedding date & initials on the side of the plane that represented the famous airport hanger reception site, Saltwater Farm Vineyard. We were thrilled to have worked with Caroline & Alexi and wish them all the best!

Caroline and Alexi’s Saltwater Farm Vineyard Wedding








Venue: Saltwater Farm Vineyard (Stonington, CT)

Mood/Details: Caroline and Alexi are a couple that reminded me on a daily basis why I am so lucky I get to do what I do. Without ever meeting Caroline after a short phone conversation she booked me on the spot, and we immediately became great friends. It makes me smile when I think how lucky I am to work with such incredible people on the biggest day of their lives, and this is a couple/family that will always hold a special place in my heart and a wedding I will always remember. Caroline described their vision as Whimsical, FUN, and a new term we coined “Hippie Preppy” a blending of details, tons of fun, bright colors, and a party that was filled with love.

The Venue an old airport hanger was a source of inspiration for the details we wove through the paper (stay tuned for a separate post on the incredible designs for the invitation, escort cards etc. that Paper Moss worked with us to create)
