Wedding Workshop and Weddings at La Fortezza

IMG_1297 fullsizeoutput_52f5

As you might have seen on IG stories, last month we hosted a wedding workshop. It was amazing. Kim Vasil of August designs lead the group, and the images are fantastic.

We had Hanna and Megan as part of the dream team. Hannah is an amazing hair and make up artist, and our Megan, from Pictory Productions, captured everything on video and was kind enough to do some photography as well since our photography instructor pulled out last minute. I love that I have such amazing pros around me that rally for the cause. It was an all hands on deck week with Sharon Fisher, from Sharon Fisher Events, assisting us with anything that we wanted and being an over all consultant on all things bridal.

As we hone our wedding skills, I am hopeful that with the help of Lisa Redgrave of Hitched in Italy, and Eliza Honey as staff florist, we will pull off the most magical weddings.

Big news: Kim Vasil will be joining the team as our American liaison to weddings here at La Fortezza. She will team up with Lisa Redgrave, our on site consultant, to produce unique and bohemian weddings for very special brides and grooms. Our location is something very special, rustic, artistic and curated for the creative bride. I know with the addition of Kim’s expertise, we will make our weddings one of a kind. Please feel free to contact her or Lisa for more information.

In the meantime we will be working on making La Fortezza the perfect destination wedding location for small bespoke weddings.

We will host only 2 weddings per year. We already have 1 booked for 2019, so there is only 1 wedding left…will it be yours? Of course feel free to email me annette@annettejosephstyle.com

Make it Fresh for Spring from Staples :: “In the Pink” A Spa themed Bridal Shower

Staples Why not throw an “In the Pink” spa themed bridal shower? Using one color can add a lot of impact!

*Party Tip : Color…Think of using shades of one color at your next party; the power of pink at this shower makes it girly and delicious. 

Try adding a few spa elements, too.  It will surely make the bride feel pampered and loved. The selection of pink invitations on Staples Copy & Print. website was incredible, so it was no wonder I had trouble choosing the perfect one for our friend Mary’s bridal shower. Did you know that Staples Inc. has everything you need for your next party? I even found these pink tissue balls on their site! Tied with Staples blush satin ribbon it made a beautiful girly touch to my decor.

Staples I loved the hot pink chevron wrapping paper. I used it to cover the table which is one of my favorite *Party Tips:  Use wrapping paper as a runner. It’s easy, pretty and when the party is over, you can roll it up and reuse it to wrap gifts.

The custom banner over the table was the perfect frame to the festive pink table setting. I made a small bridal bouquet out of grocery store pink roses and tied the perfect bow with the blush pink ribbon from Staples.

Staples Check out this gorgeous blush invitation! Staples has an extraordinary selection of beautiful, tasteful designs; I was so impressed. I ordered this delicate satin ribbon to tie the guests goodie bags with. It was the perfect shade of rose because it matched our champagne and raspberry cupcakes.

Staples These pretty little wish tags that say Mr. and Mrs. were at the party for guests to quiz the bride about her gift wish list. With the wedding just around the corner, it was the perfect way to pamper the bride with everything I found at Staples Inc.
