An Amazing Gray & Yellow Autumn Wedding at Boscobel in New York

Today’s wedding comes to us from Boscobel, an amazing colonial estate and gardens venue in Garrison, New York. Seriously, there are so many beautiful things about this property I don’t even know where to begin. Except to say, if you are looking for a venue in New York and have the means, you must put this place on your short list. It’s beautiful! And photographer Kim Coccagnia of Photography by Kimberly Coccagnia did a lovely job of capturing Jessica and Andrew and their big day. I just LOVE the silly, sweet and laughing looks they share in so many images. And OH-MY, I have to mention Jessica’s amazing Ulla-Maija gown…isn’t it stunning? The gray bridesmaids dresses with yellow shoes and the men’s gray suits are fab too. Such a classy look!

Foodie Fridays: Roasted Baby Potatoes Soaked in Parmesan Yummy Goodness

If you’re watching your weight and cholesterol, (which we should all be doing to some degree), you may not want to try this recipe fully loaded…or maybe just make a batch once in a VERY blue moon. These babies are sinful! And unfortunately, though we tried to make them using olive oil, they need to be made with the fat of butter so the gooey goodness will stick together.

It’s okay though, you can lighten it up by adding less butter and cheese and like I said, don’t make it very often ;-)

Makes about 3 servings

INGREDIENTS

1 pound baby potatoes, scrubbed and cut in half
1.76 ounces butter
1.76 ounces Parmesan, grated
garlic powder
other seasonings (rosemary, thyme basil, oregano, etc), optional

DIRECTIONS

Step 1: Preheat oven to 400 F and cut baby potatoes. We used variety of colored ones, but you can use whatever you like.

Step 2: Melt butter and pour it into a baking sheet and spread evenly across the bottom.

Step 3: Sprinkle parmesan cheese and sprinkle other seasonings all over the butter.

Step 4: Place baby potato halves face down on the butter and seasonings.

Step 5: Place in preheated oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.

These are really, really good.

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

A Drool Worthy Vintage-Chic Styled Wedding Shoot at Heritage Park

Sometimes when I receive a wedding or styled shoot like the one I’m featuring today, I want to go back in time and re-do my entire wedding based on the beautiful details and design they’ve put together. I know, I say this a couple times a year, but I mean it as the highest compliment. Believe me, it’s hard not to fall in love with all the pretty when I see so many drool worthy weddings and shoots everyday. And clearly this styled shoot is no exception.

The goal with today’s styled shoot was to produce a modern, shabby-chic style with vintage elements and boy did they do it well!

Florist: Aleah with A La Carte Flowers

Location: Heritage Park in La Verne, CA

Vintage Rentals: Knot Too Shabby in Glendora, CA

Bridal hair: Briana with BL Bridal & Hair

Models: Kate Hammond & John Nemzek

Dress: David’s Bridal

Submission via Two Bright Lights

Photographer Meghan Wiesman and Firefly Events and Designs wanted to show that it is possible to have vintage elements without going too heavy on the look and at the same time keeping it bright, fresh and beautiful. The flowers were bold with a citrus color palette and unexpected varieties. Golden yarrow, pincushion protea, kangaroo paws, snap dragons, king protea, were just to a few they used. They also added in small vintage book page elements as accents. Handmade book page flowers were also used in the flower arrangements, bouquet, Boutonnière and the bride’s ring. And the alter was made of long strips of fabric and lace strung between two hoopa poles. What a beautiful shoot, don’t you think?
