Yes, it’s true I am a Wedding Geek. I know a lot about weddings; I follow the trends; I get excited when new things are afoot. Still, I never thought of myself as a true wedding geek. I didn’t drop everything to read about Tom and Katie‘s wedding or the Clinton wedding. I just am not a famous wedding geek. But today was different. Today was about history. Today I woke up at 4am to "attend" Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton. And I am so glad I did.
To be sure, I was not alone in the insanity. Thousands upon thousands of people joined the celebration to varying degrees. And here in the western suburbs of Boston, a few of us ladies met up at SD Events to be a part of this particular wedding.
Tasha Bracken invited us to a very special breakfast. We came in our wedding finery, especially the hats, chatted, gazed, dreamed, laughed, and celebrated.
Special note, the lady to the far left with the notebook is Anna Nieman, a wedding dress designer who creates custom couture gowns. This weekend, she will take this sketch and create a copy of Kate’s stunning McQueen gown. I can’t wait to see it!
Tasha’s color palette for the party was refreshing spring tones- pinks, purples, and greens.
The food was British inspired- tea, scones, and little tea sandwiches- the best of English food to be sure. Oh and there was also coffee, orange juice, and champagne. It was a wedding, after all.
For those who may have forgotten or didn’t own hats, Glam Couture provided a few special accoutrements for the gathering.
Tasha not only created the party for us, she created a table arrangement like what the royals might have at their reception. Fun, flirty yellow and white tulips with white feathers.
Set on a periwinkle blue tablecloth with silver and blue china; crystal goblets, some with silver trim to match. (Table settings provided by Be Our Guest). The whole look was stunning!
What a morning! I can only say with heartfelt sincerity that I wish Will and Kate all the best. They seem to be a truly warm couple with obvious love between them.
