Cheslea & Joe

by Colette Pastore

A few years ago, an eager, creative, sweet girl named Chelsea became my intern extraordinaire.  She was such a welcome addition to the Pastore Events team.  She immediately clicked with myself and Tish.  When she left last year for a full time job after graduation, she took a piece of our hearts with her. 

Now she's back...well sort of!  She and her adorable fiance Joe are getting hitched!  Chelsea is going to blog her wedding planning journey for us over the next 12 months.   

Joe planned a super sweet proposal at a local Christmas Tree Farm.  Read all about it in their Green Wedding Shoes feature.

We just love this couple so much and are so lucky to call them friends.  Look out for Chelsea's blogs starting soon!  She'll let you know all about the ring, the venue, her kickass vendor team, the dress, and lots more!

Jen & Jim on Style Me Pretty

by Colette Pastore

We're so excited that Jen & Jim's June wedding is featured on Style Me Pretty today!

Jen & Jim came to us at the beginning of the planning process. We fell in love with them upon the first phone call. All they wanted was an intimate meal with their closest family and friends. After referring With Love & Embers, it all fell into place. Thanks to Pearl S Buck Estate, Maggpie Vintage Rentals, Splints & Daisies and Joshua's Catering for helping make this day perfect!

Happy Valentine's Day

by Colette Pastore

While we think that you should show the love every single day of the year, we have to admit that February 14th is extra special.  Why not spread the love a little extra today?  Here are some lyrics from our favorite love songs!  Mwah mwah mwah!!! xo

"And in the end I know that we'll find
Love so beautiful and divine
We'll be lovers for a lifetime, yeah
And I'll stay with you
I will stay with you" - John Legend

"You're the best friend
that I ever had
I've been with you such a long time
You're my sunshine
And I want you to know
That my feelings are true
I really love you
You're my best friend" - Queen

"Some people want it all
But I don't want nothing at all
If it ain't you baby
If I ain't got you baby
Some people want diamond rings
Some just want everything
But everything means nothing
If I ain't got you, Yeah" - Alicia Keys

"I can hear her heart beat for a thousand miles
And the heavens open every time she smiles
And when I come to her that's where I belong
Yet I'm running to her like a river's song
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love" - Van Morrison

"I could make you happy, make your dreams come true.
Nothing that I wouldn't do.
Go to the ends of the Earth for you,
To make you feel my love
To make you feel my love " - Bob Dylan
