Haley + Tom get hitched at El Chorro!

This past fall Stacie Shea Events was lucky enough to be a part of another Chamberlain family wedding at Haley and Tom's special day at El Chorro in Scottsdale. We love ourselves a great destination wedding and with such an amazing team of vendors to boot! A special thanks to A Story is Told for this amazing film...

I couldn't think of a better way to start this beautiful wednesday with the sun shining in my office window than looking back over one of my favorite weddings to date with two of my favorite people - Nicole and Gabriel. A special thanks to Vantage Point Films for the beautiful work and the amazing team of vendors from this beautiful day last November at the Winvian Resort.

SSE 2014: The Recap.

2014 was quite the year for Stacie Shea Events.. and for our last blog post of the season we thought we would take a ride down memory lane and swoon over the photos one last time from this year’s weddings.  

First up! Stacy and Mike got Maui'd in Maui. Stacie made her destination wedding debut in Hawaii this past year and traveled with family to go and help Stacy and Mike have a flawless wedding week on the Kapalua Beaches with a rehearsal dinner at Merrimans in Kapalua and a wedding ceremony and reception at the Kapalua Plantation. We even managed to get in an editorial photo shoot with the fabulous Montage Kapalua Bay and a pretty awesome team of vendors while on the island!

Next up..Kevin and Lauren ...These two lovebirds tied the knot at a lovely church ceremony in Greenwich at St. Catherine of Sienna followed by an intimate gathering of their closest family and friends at The Greenwich Boat and Yacht Club. The weather in May is always a gamble, but these two had the perfect afternoon.

It was a drop dead gorgeous day on May 17, 2014. The weather was outstanding, the water front views at Coveleigh were to die for and Christina and Brian got married! Seriously, this couple of vibrant and energetic people were turning heads all over the place! The Coveleigh Club in Rye, NY hosted Brian and Christina's guests for a dance party that would have gone on all night long. Nobody wanted this one to end, folks.

Julia and Scott, the sweetest couple any planner could asked for, were married June 28, 2014. Surrounded by family and friends, they were married at St. Mary's Church on The Avenue. The reception was full of signature cocktails and dance moves at the Greenwich Country Club with Elan Artists keeping everyone on the dance floor right until the end.

July 19, 2014. Ginger was married to Charlie at the home of her parents under a big beautiful tree that made the perfect ceremony space. Charlie was so smitten by his glowing bride. This was so obvious to everyone who took part in their special day. The reception took place at The Wainwright House with views of the water that were breathtaking by sunset.

It's not too often we get the opportunity to completely transform an alpaca farm on a beautiful estate in a lovely town like Bridgewater, CT. When we started working with Tracy and Eric we were so jazzed at the idea of creating a beautiful wedding  on Eric's childhood farm. The day was picture perfect. The grounds looked amazing with the ceremony, taking place atop a hill with breathtaking views, a cocktail hour under a Sperry Tent, and a one of a kind reception in the barn!

Last up, the Ganot’s.  We couldn’t, and still can’t, get enough of these two. Wrapping up the wedding season with a drop dead, over the top, killer wedding. Nicole and Gabe were married at The Winvian, a Relais & Chateaux in the Litchfield Hills just a short couple of months ago. This wasn't a wedding day, folks. It was a wedding weekend. The details were uncountable and the experience was immeasurable.

We cannot wait to see what 2015 sends our way! Bring it on!

lets get maui'd!

There are two days in every wedding planning process that I live for and make my job so incredibly special. The first being the actual wedding day at that exact moment in the reception when everything has gone right and I just know as a planner I did my best and it shows with every single smile in the room. The second is the day when I get an email from the photographer and or videographer showing me how they perceived the wedding day thru their images and work. This morning was that second moment for me when Kyle at amoreFilms in AZ sent me his OVER THE TOP work from our April Maui Wedding. Last April I was blessed beyond words to work with a very special family near and dear to my heart in Hawaii. Stacy and Michael are such a beautiful couple thru and thru. They were handed a very special situation only a few days before their wedding when Stacy's father couldn't get on an airplane and attend the wedding. They held strong together and from an outsiders view Mike started out their wedding week proving how much of a rock he really is for Stacy. As you watch them in this video all I can say is that their first kiss is only the beginning of how you can see that they care for each other in such meaningful and deep ways. Congratulations again Stacy and Mike and let me tell you this video only made me want to go back to Maui again with your family!
