When is a wedding not a wedding? When it’s a bridal show that looks like an actual wedding with brides-to-be as the guests of honor. Such is the concept of The Not Wedding. An innovative new approach to a typical bridal show. I’m proud to announce my participation in Cape Cod’s first Not Wedding event taking place November 24, 2013, at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in Falmouth, MA. The Not Wedding is a way for future brides to not only meet potential vendors but to see them in action at a real looking (but fake) wedding, including a full ceremony and reception. Details and ticket information can be found at thenotwedding.com. Tickets are going fast so get yours today!
Some of the Not Wedding vendors recently had a chance to work with the couple getting “married” for this event, Peyton and Chris, for a Save the Date photo shoot at The Knob in Falmouth. Enjoy this video highlight of that day!
This upcoming Sunday, February 12th the Cape and Islands Wedding Group will be hosting one of Cape Cod’s most distinguished wedding events of the year! Between 12pm and 4pm you can visit the lush grounds of the New Seabury Country Club in Mashpee, MA where there will be live bands, a candy island, loads of tasty treats to sample, gorgeous tablescapes to feast your eyes on, and seminars by experts that will give you a peek into the insiders’ guide to weddings.
Cape Cod Celebrations will take you through how the professionals plan a wedding, Flowers by Anna will show you how to sculpt the perfect flower arrangement, and The Bartending Service will be there to help you show off some moves while shaking up your favorite cocktails. All of this and two fashion shows featuring stunning designer dresses at 1pm and 3pm.
And of course there are going to be fantastic raffles featuring prizes worth over $7,000 in value.
Naturally, I’ll be there as well and I’d love for you to stop by and say “hi.”
Tickets are $15 and available at the registration table on the day of the show.
All proceeds from ticket sales are being donated to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on Cape Cod.
To turn 13 is a thing of wonder. It’s that first big milestone in a young person’s life where you feel like something transcendental is happening. Something that puts you on the path to being a bigger and better you. In this ceremony that is laden with thousands of years of beautiful tradition within the Jewish faith, Maya was given the right of passage to be more responsible for her own self and to handle herself with more grace and confidence.
Maya’s big day was on a glorious summer day this past June 18th. Following a lovely service at Temple Chayai Shalom, in South Easton, MA, her mother, father, sister, and the rest of her family and close friends traveled north on I93 to the town of Quincy. Maya, accompanied by all of her friends, arrived with much fanfare via a classic styled yellow school bus. They all piled out and into the big white tent at Granite Links Country Club, which was set up with a beach theme as if to highlight “School’s over, let the fun begin!”
With DJ’s Scott and Cubey, the afternoon did not disappoint those in attendance who came with their dancing shoes on and for those lacking dancing shoes, festive flip flops were provided. Guests were treated to hours of varied entertainment, dancing and games, and the folks at Granite Links served up a wide array of tasty foods and desserts.
And so it was on this brilliant sunny summer afternoon, Maya and everyone who is close to her, made a lasting memory of a very special day.
