  • Fave Wedding Blog: Wedding Chicks, 100 Layer Cake, Ruffled, SMP, GWS, Rustic Wedding Chic, Grey Likes… I just can’t choose!
  • Fave Wedding Cake Combo: I’m kind of a red velvet gal at heart, but I do love me some pistachio with vanilla buttercream.
  • Fave Event Styling Genre: Rustic Art-Deco
  • Ideal Event Planning Super Hero Skill: It would be really helpful if I had the ability to completely control the mood of a room (like Jasper from Twilight).
  • Veil, Flower or Headpiece?: Birdcage baby!
  • Fave Wedding Tradition: The Send Off – Whether we’re using sparklers, napkins, lanterns or streamers, it is always such a fun moment of sheer celebration!
  • The moment in every wedding that never fails to bring you to tears: When I see the bride (someone who I’ve been planning this day with for months) completely dressed and ready to start the festivities; gets me misty eyed every time!

marisanicolevertical-5Claire Tecce: Associate Event Coordinator

  • Fave Wedding Blog: Green Wedding Shoes
  • Fave Wedding Cake Combo: Lemon Cake with Raspberry Filling and Buttercream Frosting
  • Fave Event Styling Genre: Anything vintage-inspired, I like the “something old” part of weddings.
  • Ideal Event Planning Super Hero Skill: Getting everyone fed with a drink in hand all at the same time (I’m Italian, it’s my prerogative)!
  • Veil, Flower or Headpiece?: Headpiece
  • Fave Wedding Tradition: Any and every special detail or moment of celebration that reflects the couple’s culture(s)… be it the Filipino money dance, Italian Wedding Soup, a Chinese tea ceremony, the Hora or even jumping a broom!
  • The moment in every wedding that never fails to bring you to tears: This robot don’t cry! But a heartfelt toast always does the trick to warm my heart.

  • Fave Wedding Blog: Style Me Pretty
  • Fave Wedding Cake Combo: 4 layers of goodness – pink champagne, chocolate mocha, red velvet, and Italian rum layers complete with a cream cheese frosting and dazzled with vanilla-flavored pearls
  • Fave Event Styling Genre: Whimsical, I’m a hopeless romantic who believes in fairytales, so a magical wedding complete with glass slippers and a horse-drawn carriage is perfect in my eyes!
  • Ideal Event Planning Super Hero Skill: Teleportation – Because event planners have to be in so many places at once!
  • Veil, Flower or Headpiece?: Veil
  • Fave Wedding Tradition: Cutting of the Cake – You never know what to expect from the couple, be it romantic or comical…
