THE KNOT NY! ....

The Knot NY Greenwich CT Wedding Planner Last September Stacie Shea Events was lucky enough to be part of an AMAZING team of vendors that pulled off this beauty of a wedding. It was simply magical starting at the rehearsal at Stanwich Congregational Church in Greenwich, CT to the rehearsal dinner at Valbella and the Reception at the Riverside Yacht Club. It is such an honor to see team Stacie Shea Events and our hard work gracing the pages of The Knot NY!

meet the mccrystles: the greenwich boat and yacht club

I don't think we could have asked for a better day for a wedding by the water here at Stacie Shea Events. The weather in May is always a gamble but on the morning of the third the sun was shining and the birds were chirping and Kevin and Lauren were getting married. They had a beautiful ceremony at St. Catherine of Sienna in Greenwich, CT with their closest friends and family. The Greenwich Boat and Yacht Club then hosted an evening full of dancing and celebration. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. McCrystle! Vendor Credits, of course:

Trouvaille Workshop - Hey Gorgeous Events

Bradley James Photography As a planner and designer I find it so incredibly important that we continue to stay on top of the current wedding trends, and always continue learning. Not just about how to put on a seamless and perfect event but also learning from other amazing individuals in the wedding community. Since I was traveling home from M + S's wedding week in Maui I thought it was so perfect that Erica attend the Trouvaille Workshop with none other than the FAB Rhiannon from Hey Gorgeous Events.

Erica came home from this 3 day workshop in Grand Rapids inspired beyond words. I can hardly contain myself with all the fun things we have coming our way at Stacie Shea Events. All I can say is that we are gearing up for a crazy rest of 2014 and an even more incredible 2015! Stay tuned for all our upcoming changes and get ready for a recap from Erica next week on the blog about this great workshop.

PS - For all those planners, designers, and possible newbies in the industry I cannot say enough great things about Rhi and her passion. This my friends is the gal to learn from! So make sure you sign up for her upcoming October workshop!

Engage13! at the Montelucia - The Luxury Wedding Summit Recap

cc6789150c7789b9e195817e_650x433 Since starting my business I have been watching the tweets, facebook posts, and instagram pics when fellow wedding industry folks head out to Engage each December and June. Shortly after having my daughter I decided it was time to call myself out, pull the trigger and register to attend. On December 9th with my great friend Jessica Ulrich from Jessica Haley Photography we headed off to the AMAZING Montelucia in Scottsdale. This year Engage13! hit a huge milestone by making this the 12th go round of this luxury wedding business summit.

To my friends, clients and industry friends it the Maserati of wedding industry events and attending it makes you feel like you just graduated from Harvard with an MBA in Wedding! Engage13! was filled with great speakers, incredible networking, so much information you feel like you are brain could explode at any given moment with all the hair brained crazy ideas floating thru your head!  The event is limited to the first 300 wedding professionals and it truly challenges its attendees to think outside the box and  provide new and exciting ways to give value to your clients.

I would be giving away some of the new things coming to Stacie Shea Events in 2014 and 2015 if I told you everything I was able to walk away from this conference with.I will tell you that what started as a small world cab ride with the Brides Magazine Real Weddings Editor paved the road for a pretty amazing event. Then lead to a pretty amazing seat right next to Sean Low during the Opening day, a small group dinner and business analysis from Sean, an amazing walk back to my hotel room after the first night with Marcy Blum, a breakfast with Silvia Weinstock, and a Gala seat next to Ed Libby's business partner.  Engage13! provided speaker panels,small group experiences, FAB parties, and a once in a lifetime opportunity to rub elbows with the wedding industry’s best of the best.

NAUTICAL NURSERY

The day I found out I was having a baby girl I knew that her nursery could never be the typical pinks, or purples. I just was never a girlie girl so I had to  make her nursery something that I loved and I knew my baby girl would wake up every day feeling loved and inspired. Being that we live in Connecticut I knew I wanted to bring in Nautical touches coupled with some Southern bits since her Mama has a deep hearted love for the South Ya'll. This bedroom is bursting with the love that I have for my daughter and you can see the full post over at my friend Aedriel's Blog. SKP-19 SKP-5 SKP-12 SKP-14 SKP-41 SKP-38 SKP-3 SKP-13 SKP-46
