Wedding Wednesday: Pauline and Michael’s “When Pigs Fly” Mystic Wedding

Venue: Private Residence, Mystic, CT
Mood/Details: This past summer I had the pleasure of working with one of the coolest couples. Their wedding was a weekend celebration of family and friends and full of FUN!!! The festivities started Friday night at the Mystic Aquarium and continued into Saturday as guests arrived to a tented affair on the couple’s property in Mystic. Definitely not a traditional wedding, but one I know guests are still talking about, especially all of the kids! For the reception we brought in 2 inflatable bounce houses, a balloon artist, an airbrush tattoo company, Rock Band Stations were set up in various locations, Movies played under the stars of the blue tent, ping pong, pinatas, games of corn hole, and a Photobooth. The energy flying around the yard was infectious and guests danced and partied well into the evening on one of the nicest nights of the summer.

Tuesday Shoesday

On this very snowy, slushy Tuesday I am dreaming of replacing my overused snow boots for some uber luxurious pumps. And well, nothing says luxury like Louboutin. So Louboutin I shall bring you. Happy Tuesday! xoxo, Abby C.

Coffee Talk Monday: Paloma’s Nest Special Offer!

I first learned of Paloma’s Nest a few years ago and immediately fell in love with the simplicity of the work, soft white ceramic detail, and the meaning behind the words chosen as part of the designs. I just love that you can personalize the pieces to be a unique gift for weddings, anniversaries or any special occasion. I have suggested to a few clients the idea of using the plates as a one of a kind guest book that can be customized with their date, a special quote, etc. and then have guests sign the plate with a pen later to be glazed and kept as a family heirloom. There are just so many fabulous options from Paloma’s Nest to personalize your event, and she is offering a not to be missed offer for our readers!

From Caroline (Paloma’s Nest): I grew up in the small town of Mystic, Connecticut, surrounded by antiques and historical architecture. I was taught to appreciate things that were made to last, and to treasure items that held their own history. Items that have special meaning, or have a past in your family or community should be cherished; it is from this idea that my passion for creating special gifts and home goods- modern heirlooms- comes. Pieces from Paloma’s Nest are made with quality materials and craftsmanship, and are intended to be passed on for generations.

When I see the the homes, boats & ships, and tiny towns along the coast of Connecticut, I see a beauty that is timeless. It inspires me to design pieces that are modern, but not trendy; pieces that will still look elegant and classic in a home or in a wedding 100 years from now.

**We are so excited that for all of our readers Caroline is offering 20% off any order if you mention coupon code MYSTIC. visit (wedding items, baby gifts, anything!) through March 15.**

Happy shopping!

Inspiration from Anywhere: Home Decor

We are firm believers that wedding design inspiration can come from just about anywhere. The perfect party dress can inspire an entire event. A fabulous couch can determine a color palette for a wedding. You understand. It’s lovely how that little thing they call inspiration works. We’ve decided to make Thursdays the day we embrace inspiration from anywhere and everywhere – and with all the snow today, it only seems right to look inside the home. So here is a little sunshiny decor for your snowy Thursday. xoxo, Abby C.
