I am looking forward to the New Year and all that is to come.  I always get giddy this time of the year.  I love all the new exciting couples and the fresh love they bring to the wedding industry.  I will be going on my annual Christmas break vacation from blogging so I can spend my Christmas with my mother and I’m so excited.  While it may be a vacation I will working on projects for New Year. 

2011 will begin with the annual blog postings of "The First Steps of Wedding Planning".  All the information you need to start your wedding planning on the right foot. From budgets to picking the right venue or even just where to start.  This will be your helping hand as you start the planning process.

Events, Events & Events!! Get ready because I am taking it to the streets in 2011!!  First event I have in store for you is the Venue Bus Tour! This tour will take you to NYC’s best venues and provide you with planning information along the way.  More information coming soon so stay tuned for details.  Also, I’m getting ready for a GNO (Girls Night Out) Event.  Bring your besties and come have some fun.  It’s all about the fabulous cocktails, fashion and fun, all while getting wedding planning tips! No boys allowed!!  I will also make appearances at bridal expos so look out for that.

Throughout the year, I hope to continue to bring you more planning advice, inspiration and help you keep your sanity while planning your wedding.  I'll be working hard behind the blog and I can't wait to see you in the New Year! Wishing you a Happy Holiday!!

The Year In Review

When the year is coming to an end, I tend to take a look back at all the wonderful things that took place.  So I decided t take a look at all the wonderful things that took place on the blog this year.  Let’s take a look shall we!

1)      The 2010 patone’s color of the year was turquoise and the inspiration board was a big hit amongst my readers.  I’m looking forward to 2011 color honeysuckle. Inspiration boards coming soon.

2)      I attended two great events and did a vlog (video blog) post on it.  Thanks YouTube for freeze framing at the wrong times.   

3)      The blog got a makeover!! See above!!

Vendor Profile - Kiss the Bride

I have a confession to make. I was not a fan of the wedding video for a long time.  The photo montage, the guest’s messages and the length of the video just turned me off completely.  Now I am in love with the wedding videos that are being created today because they are not videos they are cinematography.

Now enter Kiss the Bride! Kiss the Bride is a boutique cinematography company that creates wedding documentaries that are stylish and modern.  Their editing style captures all the special moments that you want to remember. You could feel the love and emotion just from a quick glimpse into the happy couple’s wedding day.  Leslie, one of the owners of Kiss the Bride

How long have you've been filming weddings?

4 years. We launched our company Kiss The Bride Films in November of last year!

When did you start the cinematography style of shooting?
Our background is in fine art films. We've both made films that have shown in festivals all over the world, including Sundance.

How long is the final edited video?
We offer two final produces. A documentary film and a highlight film. Our documentary is usually anywhere from 45 min- to an hour. Our Hight light is three to five minutes in length.

How do you decide what to include in the final cut?
We include everything that we feel accurately tells the story of our clients wedding day.

Best wedding day memory?
For us the best wedding memories are when we work for kind hearted people. Most of our clients are so wonderful and it is such a pleasure for us to be with them on such a special day.

Here a sample of their wonderful work.  I swear I tear up every time!

Groomsmen Attire

Bridesmaids usually have the opportunity to wear a dress that shows their personal style but the groomsmen are stuck in the same suit. I saw this picture and I thought this was such a great idea.  Each groomsman wore a different tie that matches the color scheme of the wedding.  This is a great way to let your groomsmen’s personal style shine as well.
