When Ceci Johnson first started making wedding invitations after work in her NYC apartment, “couture design” was still an unknown concept in the industry. Still, this type of approach felt right to her. When you love and believe in what you do, great work follows. And soon, people take notice and want to be a part of whatever it is you are doing. Ceci is proof of this. In less than a year’s time, she went from creating wedding stationery for friends in the late hours of the night to being singled out as a special talent by the New York design world! Read More

Nothing sets a romantic mood like candles. As the temperature starts to dip, our weddings move to indoor venues where the atmosphere is warm and lovely, but natural light may be lacking. For this reason, incorporating candles into wedding décor becomes especially important during the fall and winter seasons!
Where to start? One feature that we especially love to see enhanced with a flickering flame or two is the wedding centerpiece. Candles come in a variety of options including pillar, taper, votive, and tea light. There are so many ways to create an illuminating display that radiates style, luxury, and romance for your tablescape. From cozy and intimate to modern chic to grand opulence, here are stunning ideas for using candles in your wedding reception décor. Read More
