Like so many other couples in 2020, Andrea and Ralph postponed their wedding multiple times due to COVID before deciding they didn't want to wait any longer. They had originally planned a nautical wedding in New Jersey where they live, but with the ever-changing rules and regulations, they decided it would be best to host it in Andrea's parents' backyard in Wolcott, CT.

With less than 2 months to go, Andrea's mom, Michelle, reached out to me to inquire about our services. After a brief discussion about what they already had planned, the changes that were made, and what they still needed, we were hired to finish making this wedding day finally happen for Andrea and Ralph. Since they were moving their wedding from a facility that included catering, tables, chairs, china, staff, etc. to a backyard location, we needed to start with 2 of the most important things for a backyard wedding: a tent and food! Luckily, I have been doing this for a very long time and I was able to call on a caterer and rental company very quickly.

They were able to keep their photographer and florist from New Jersey, but needed some Connecticut recommendations for a DJ, Pastor, hair and makeup, restroom trailers, in addition to a caterer and rental company. I was so happy to hear that they were extremely happy with all of our recommendations. So, an extra big shout out to Spice Catering Group, Durant's Party Rentals, L.A. Page Makeup, CNT Entertainment, Pastor Sam DeFrancesco and A Royal Flush.

Seeing as how I was already booked on their wedding date, Michelle worked alongside Carisa and Liz during the almost 2 months of planning, but Liz and Caitlin ran the show on the big day. See what she had to say about us!
