Winvian

Today, the Bellafare team is taking a little drive to the gorgeous Winvian in Morris, CT for a site visit for an upcoming fall wedding. We absolutely love this venue, as we have never experienced anything else quite like it. Set against 113 acres of gorgeous woodlands and meadows, this luxury resort somehow figured out a way to marry sophistication with whimsy. There are 18 individually designed guest cottages on-site with themes ranging from woodlands, to golf, and even a secret society.

The spa is perfection, the food is delicious, and the themed cottages are super fun. We are thrilled to be planning a wedding at this unique venue and know it will be the perfect backdrop for our adorable October couple.

Spring Flowers

Spring has sprung in NYC! This is my absolute favorite time in the city because everyone has been cooped up all winter and is desperate for a little sunshine. The birds are chirping, trees are blooming, and everyone seems just a little bit happier…Happy spring to all of the New Yorkers out there!

All Greens

I love the idea of forgoing the typical wedding colors and opting for all greens, as there is something so organic yet chic about ferns, grasses, and eucalyptus. I am super excited about an upcoming Bellafare wedding where we are incorporating all greens and natural elements. It will be such a beauty!

In the meantime, here's a little inspiration for your day…

Zero George Hotel

Y'all know I love Charleston. I also love great design. Well folks…the Zero George Hotel is the perfect combination of elegance and Southern charm. Designed and owned by the oh so sophisticated, Lynn Andrews of Easton Events and her husband, Dean, this boutique property is a must see on my travel list. Dinner party in this courtyard? Yes please!

Charming Churches

In my line of work it is important to consider every little detail and the church is no exception. For my wedding (see below), I made sure that my church reflected Drew and I's personalities and style. We opted for a modern look, however, there are beautiful churches everywhere that come in all shapes and sizes…
