10 Things We Know About Harry And Meghan’s Wedding—From An Insider

The engagement was just announced, but royal wedding fever is already here.


No one does pomp and circumstance like the Brits, and when it comes to royal weddings, they rule. I’m one of those people who set the alarm for 5am so I could get up and watch Lady Diana arrive at St. Paul’s Cathedral in a gold, horse-drawn carriage to marry Prince Charles. Ever since, I’ve made it my personal mission to know everything there is to know about the fascinating family at the center of the world’s longest running soap opera.

After two books and countless conversations with royal insiders (including Diana’s brother, Charles), I’ve gained plenty of insight on how things work within “The Firm.” Although they only just announced their engagement yesterday, plans for Harry and Meghan’s wedding are well under way. Here’s what we know so far. And for more royal engagement coverage, here are 10 Secrets the Palace Doesn’t Want Meghan Markle to Know. Continue reading

Private Wedding In Jaffrey New Hampshire

Photographer is Kate Preftakes

This wedding set-up in the beautiful hills of Jaffrey, NH is simply stunning. Not only was this private residence the perfect location for a Tidewater Sailcloth Tent, but the timeless arrangements underneath the tent are breathtaking. In case of rain, this couple opted for window sailcloth tent sides to prepare for any inclement weather. The white wash cross back chairs add a countryside and modern feel. The white cotton linens and water goblets keep it classic and simple. Just gorgeous!

A Clear Tent Wedding At Hidden Pond Resort In Kennebunkport, Maine

There’s something really spectacular about the way our clear frame tents look on the patio of the barn at Hidden Pond Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine. This couple opted to extend their tent to a 40’x45’ in order to accommodate their full seated reception underneath. The family style rows of dark wood farm tables with our fruitwood chivari chairs made for a great conversational layout! Simple touches of greenery complemented the wedding white dishware and elegant glassware settings on the table so perfectly!

What You Don’t Need at Your Wedding



Nick Douglas8/23/2017

Legally, all you need for a wedding is a visit to the county clerk’s office, and whatever else your local government requires. (Check here.) Everything else is optional. Of course, some things are more optional than others. Most weddings these days skip the garter toss; many skip the bridesmaids and groomsmen, and some even skip the flowers. What matters is that you pick the right elements to keep making you and your guests happy. Continue reading

Exeter Events Wedding In Rollinsford Maine

There is something so classic about the blend of neutral tones with a touch of rustic. Dark farm tables accompanied by walnut crossback chairs provide a timeless look and feel and can really be used in any setting. The blush goblets along with the pink and white flower arrangement add a beautiful pop of color to tie the look together. The celery panama napkins add the perfect amount of texture and the ivory plates with Etage flatware keeps the look clean.
