• Oheka Castle

    While researching to come up with a list of venues that I think couples would absolutely love, I came across Oheka Castle, in Long Island, NY. This estate is a dream to the say the least. From the picturesque and lush landscapes, to the alluring decor indicative of old world elegance, what’s not to love about this place. It actually reminds me of Chateau de Versailles in France and I also immediately thought Great Gatsby! (having seen trailers of the Leonado Di Caprio movie all over tv recently), only to find out that this estate along with other historic mansions and musuems were collectively the inspiration for the classic novel. Owner Gary Melius purchased this mansion over 30 years ago and after years of restoration and renovation, this iconic location stands as one of the most spectacular venues for celebrations, movie and photo shoots. Movies like Citizen Kane, The Emperor’s Club, The Great Gatsby Documentary, What happens in Vegas, all shot scenes there. Talk about having a vision and following through with it!

  • Pink Inspiration

    Happy Monday everyone! I’m doing some posts on color palettes over the next few weeks to give our 2013/2014 brides some inspiration on color combinations. As a lover of all things design, I’ve been spending some time on Pinterest, pinning some cool design boards that brides will absolutely love. Here are two that totally speaks girly :), pink and sparkly gold! gotta love it. Whether you want to go soft with blush pink or create that pop of color with fuschia, combining either shade of pink with gold creates a spectacular effect. I am hoping to do something with this color combination soon :)… check out more color palettes and design boards on our pinterest page…
