Folie à Deux Events

Dear friends! I have launched an all new project in the world of weddings, Folie à Deux Events, my new wedding/party planning service and blog! I offer Day-of Coordinating, Full Wedding Planning, and I am happy to advise on styling, event design, and custom decorations! Check out the new site, and give us a follow!

Here’s to new projects!


Summer Star Gazing

I have always been a bit of an Astronomy nerd and thought that a great theme for a summer wedding would be a Star Party. Even better if you can plan your wedding during a Meteor Shower! (the Perseids Meteor Shower is usually most visible during the second week of August, just saying…)

Plan the ceremony for the late afternoon or early evening and then party on into the night! Set up a nice tent for the reception, some place rural with great open views of the sky. Decorations would be simple, charming, rustic, possibly homemade if you are feeling up to a DiY project!  Light your tent with some string lights and swags of tulle or sheer fabrics, accent with paper lanterns or mason jar lights!

I envision a vintage inspired gown, but with some modern flare (Check out BHLDN, they fit this aesthetic perfectly). Dress your bridesmaids in something simple but with a little sparkle to invoke the theme.

Leana’s Gown

Hello darlings! I hope you enjoy these beautiful photos from my client Leana. I finished her gown last summer and her wedding was in the fall. Her gown is satin with crystal beading in various shades of white and pale silver in an asymmetrical pattern on the bodice skirt.  Congrats to her and her husband!


Mary’s Gown

Congratulations to my good friend Mary and her husband Jason! They got married this weekend! This is the dress I designed and made for her! The dress is made from a gorgeous wool flannel and embellished with an embroidered and beaded floral trim, and tiny pearls along the neckline and edges of the sleeves.

I also designed her veil, which was a waterfall style with a butterfly brooch and draped beads.Mary's Gown

Melissa’s Gown

Preview  from a recent photoshoot! This is one of my newest designs, a high waisted A-line gown with draped georgette bodice details and handmade bias-cut flowers with crystal centers. I also created a matching bird-cage veil.  This was a sample gown and it is FOR SALE!  This  veil and other similar styles will be available in my Etsy Store soon.  Photo by Mark Baker.Melissa Gown
