The fabulous Black and Fuchsia Wedding of Steph and Justin – at Aria in Prospect, CT

Over the years, we have had such an incredible array of couples walk through our doors.  Each have very special needs and wants with regard to how their wedding or event is going to take place.  The styles they love, the look they were trying to achieve. So when I get Steph’s e-mail asking a very specific type of acrylic picture frame favor item, I couldn’t wait to meet her.  She was also recommended from another couple who I just adored working with on their wedding, so I knew we would have a great time. It turned out in meeting with Steph that she was going to become sister in law to another lovely bride I had worked with a few years early. Well this young lady came in with her multi watt smile such a fun incredible personality, I couldn’t wait to get started on her project. We started on working on her customized picture frame, which was going to be imprinted in a Fuchsia color.  We then needed to find the perfect ring pillow and I think we hit it out of the park with the XOXO custom ring pillow in Black, Fuchsia and White.  We then worked on her table cards that certainly weren’t boring!  We did them with Swarovski crystals so that they would shine in the foyer near the lovely centerpiece created for the table.

Can we get any more fun than this handsome group with shades! Check out the fabulous flowers, shoes, ties and men’s kerchief.


We are finding that so many of our brides and grooms are renting the big party buses either for themselves or for their guests. I just got a kick how this bus really carried into Steph and Justin’s wedding theme perfectly! Now on to the creations of The Persnickety Bride

Before the wedding begins we have our XOXO ring pillow in white, black and fuchsia.  Yes it is in fuchsia as well, just a little hard to see in this picture angle.  The back is all XO’s in black and fuchsia with their names on the front of the pillow in fuchsia.

Next up are the lovely table cards with Swarvoski crystals that give a little sparkle to the entrance foyer table. Centered with a beautiful flower arrangement.

Below is the custom picture frame done to suite what the photo booth picture was going to be instead of just a strip photo – Steph and Justin’s photos were going to be 4 x 6 horizontal.

The bride put a lovely note in fuchsia at all the place settings of her guests to welcome them and thank them for being part of their wedding.  A lovely touch.

The floral arrangements were high to keep out of the line of conversation. The picture frame favors around the table make for a stunning focal point at the table setting. Steph’s aunt and uncle were the florists that designed and worked with the bride and groom on their floral needs.

I got the chance to swing by during the cocktail hour and see three of my favorite brides! Pictured here yours truly in the blue, the lovely bride Steph, the lovely new sister-in-law Leigh and best friend to the new sister in laws the lovely Casey. How I enjoyed working with all of these ladies on their weddings.
