“With A Little Help From My Friends” went a long way at Claire and Mark’s summer shindig at Blithewold Mansion a few weeks ago. Claire’s mom made her dress (and it should be noted, she is not a seamstress.) The signature cocktails were crafted from hand collected rose petals. The band, the florist, and the desserts (my favorite macarons in the city) were all provided by friends of the couple. And then Tracy of Tangorra Wedding Planning, Erica of Russell Morin Catering, and I rounded out the team (and I like to think we’re all friends now too.) Cheers!
