Lauren and Patrick met for their first date in October 2017. They met the classic way you meet anyone in NYC…on Bumble. “We were both nervous, so things got off to a rocky start,” Lauren says. “But after I mentioned that I grew up listening to Billy Joel –  who Patrick also listened to with his best friends growing up in Cold Spring Harbor – we instantly clicked. The night continued with margaritas and many laughs, exchanging stories about growing up in New York, and a failed attempt to go to karaoke – it was Tuesday and they closed at 10 pm.” On their second date, Patrick told Lauren that he was likely moving to Malaysia in six months for work. “I initially shrugged it off. But that following week, Patrick got a call that he was to transfer in four weeks,” she says. After making the most of the time they had left together, the couple decided to commit to a long-distance relationship. “The next two years were filled with so much travel and adventure…so lots of time in an airport!” Lauren remembers.

As the days get shorter and colder, we take comfort in the richer, warmer hues observed in the natural world – just think of golden sunlight filtering through a canopy of foliage in mid-October!

Cast through a gilded prism, this atmospheric beauty ushers a change in wedding color schemes used for floral decor. Summer’s airy pastels and crisp whites give way to autumn’s spiced reds, golden yellows, and moody jewel tones.

If you are in the midst of planning a wedding, chances are you have put together a To-Do list laying out in detail all that needs to get done before the big event. To-Do lists help organize, prioritize, and track progress. However, when faced with a huge project, we often leave the hardest tasks to the last minute. Doing the easiest, least-time consuming things first gives a sense of accomplishment – until it doesn’t. Dread of what’s to come mounts, becoming heavier as the weeks go by.
