The Wedding Boutique has help numerous brides help find the perfect jewelry piece for their wedding. For this lovely bride we picked out these stunning pair of earrings fit for a queen. Stef sent us an image of her dress and necklace she already picked out. We went on a hunt to find the perfect pair for her. We found these tear drop earrings that were just stunning with her gorgeous strapless dress and classic floral hair clip. This and many other timeless bridal pieces will be sold on The Wedding Boutique launching in September!!
Whatever our brides wants our brides get! At ECO we have a love for DIY. If we have the time to execute it, we will do it ourselves. When our lovely bride wanted an anti-flower bouquet we rose to the occasion. We researched, got tons of inspiration, did some smaller trial bouquets and got started. We wanted a colorful, whimsical feel to compliment the beachy, carousel venue. We are still in love with how it came out. DO you prefer flowers or no flowers?

Everyone has made a paper airplane one time or another. You can't help but want to throw it up into the air and watch it glide across a room. In the picture above we used paper airplanes as the "rice" in this rustic wedding. Everyones faces just lit up not only because the bride & groom got married BUT because you can't help but smilie when you let one of these go! It was so amazing seeing them soar over the bride and groom all at once. Since this sendoff was so successful we wanted to share the love that these paper planes had given us with you!
Below you will find a FREE LINK for an ECO designed Paper Plane with step by step instructions. Feel free to pass this blog post along to your friends and family so you can put a smile on their faces too. :)

It has been a while since we have made a post. Mainly because half of East Coast Occasions is prego! My half (Amanda), in particular. Well of course I had to have an ECO baby shower and what better way to do that but with a Garden inspired shower in the middle of winter!
I have had this garden theme in my head way before I was knocked up. I envisioned tables with huge white umbrellas in an outdoor garden with tons of flowers and greens around. BUT I was stuck with the winter time frame and this became my reality.
So I did my best trying to find a venue that had an elegant outdoor feel but inside. And found The Waterview. I just fell in love with all the windows and how open and airy it felt. It was perfect and so after the date was set, I began planning all the little garden details to put together for my WINTER baby shower.
I could not have done it without all my friends and family me members that helped me put everything together. Being larger than normal sure does slow you down a bit! Thanks for all your help and flexibility. I know working along side a emotional pregnant woman couldn't have been a walk in the park!
After all the planning, designing, organizing and assistance, we have some amazing pictures (shot by the BEST Tim Mannle) of this gorgeous yet frigid day!

As some of you know, Esteban Gil is a photographer, and a great one at that! After shooting another wedding we did together, he asked us to meet with his wife Roxanne to help plan his own wedding. And off we were...
We had about six months to design, plan, organize and put together every last detail for these two lovebirds. Roxanne and Esteban's vision wasn't your typical wedding, they wanted something different, something memorable, and something creative that didn't break the bank. And that’s just what we did!
The Gil's wedding day was unforgettable. With the amazing venue, fun (and helpful) wedding party, a kick-ass band, ribbon chandeliers (hung by hand) and might I add a FLASH MOB!! It was truly was a day to remember and ECO always will!

When we got asked to do all the graphic design for a Cape Cod wedding we were so excited to get started! If anyone knows our E.C.O. gal Corrine, you know she is in love with the nautical motif. Her apartment is a seaside escape in the middle of Stamford, CT. Corinne was the perfect person to lead this project and looking at the invitations you can see her passion come through. She is still working on other print pieces for the wedding, so there will be more to come. But just click the link below to see these nautical gems!
Cape Cod Invitation
Currently ECO is working with Roxanne & Esteban on their April wedding, at the Carousel in Lighthouse Point Park. We were hired because we are wedding planners not scared to get our hands a little dirty when it comes to DIY details. Corinne and I both love doing crafts in our leisure but we also have a passion for graphic design. Since we both studied design we are able to give our couples the best of both worlds!
Now-a-days everything we know is digital, so don’t your think your wedding should be too? Obviously the traditional wedding invitation keeps it formal, elegant, and welcoming. But when you add a wedding website into the mix it helps keep all you guests connected to you and your wedding day! We design a wedding website specifically for your wedding. The look and feel of your wedding is incorporated into the site to make everything feel cohesive and personalized.
What we design for our couples makes their wedding have an identity, their identity! We want their personalities flow throughout every aspect of their wedding, including something as small as a website. Take a look at some pictures of Roxanne & Esteban's wedding website designed by yours truly!

When Alissa & Jeff agreed to have us plan their wedding day down to the last detail we were so honored! We only had 3 months to pull this together and there was no way that we would sacrifice the details because of the short timeline.
The night before Corinne and I both had a hard time sleeping because we were so excited for what we call our "Christmas morning" . We got to work and saw all of our planning, ideas and designs come to life before our eyes.
We have to say it was not only Alissa & Jeff's wedding day but was one of the best days of our life as well. We will always remember our first designed wedding as a duo. We will be forever grateful for the opportunity and trust that the Tatro's had in us.

Back in 2011, Shelley my sister in law met the love of her life Wesley Eisenhandler. Naturally she asked me to plan her gorgeous preppy wedding, at Great River Country Club in Milford, CT.
Even two years after my own wedding, I still had the planning itch. So I had to design and plan everything from wedding invites, to signature drinks. Shelley and I worked with each other flawlessly and I truly think it brought us closer together. :)
Shelley & Wesley have been happily married for 2 years now! I am so glad that they trusted me to plan their special day and would do it all over again in a heart beat! Anniversary party perhaps?!?!
I decided to feature Shelley & Wesley's wedding on ECO to showcase a lovely wedding with some different and creative details.
