We’ve been seeing this gorgeous color, Pantone’s Radiant Orchid, popping up everywhere! There are beautiful wedding color schemes all over Pinterest and Etsy and we’re excited for when a Marquee Bride makes it her own. This beautiful montage is from The Perfect Palettte. We simply love it.

It’s all about the details, and who doesn’t love calligraphy? Meet Laura Lavender, the typographic artist behind Lavender Calligraphy on Etsy. There were plenty of beautiful items in her shop, but we really loved the Escort Cards and the Envelope Address Calligraphy because we know those small details make a huge first impression. So stunning!

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so therefore a video, well, let’s just say that the one below says a whole lot. It’s been exquisitely created by Fran Gagnon Films, our Featured Preferred Vendor this week! When one of our vendors has a family member getting married and they choose our venue when we know they’ve worked with them all, it’s an honor. We loved sharing in Fran’s daughter’s special day and we are beyond words at the beautiful video they made to capture the memories. Please read about it in their own words, and then watch the video and see for yourself.

When it came time for my Daughter to plan her wedding, we knew exactly where to look to make her dream day come true. Being in the wedding business for many years, I’ve seen pretty much every wedding venue in the area. With this in mind, I have long been a fan of the unique architectural beauty and historical significance of the Gershon Fox Building. It has a charm all its own and My Daughter and her fiance fell in love with its Art Deco style and Hollywood feel.  Add to that the superlative service and outstanding cuisine from the Marquee Events staff and the choice became a no brainer.  

Thanks to Darren and his staff for helping to make everything perfect. If anyone is looking for a venue with an elegant urban vibe – look no further. 

Here is a Feature Film from my daughter’s wedding day produced by our wonderful staff at Fran Gagnon Films. Editing was accomplished with assistance from our associate and good friend, Kevin Huss from Kevin Lee Studios.

We enjoyed reading this article by the Hartford Courant on the history of downtown shopping in Hartford. They spoke so lovingly of  G. Fox & Co. and all of the nostalgia associated with it. And the slideshow pictures were fantastic! We highly recommend it!
