SAVE THE DATE:
The wedding mavens of Wedding Row in Clinton are joining forces with the interior design experts of Venetucci Home in Westbrook, to create an evening of inspiration for those interested in wedding, fashion or home décor.
On October 27th from 6-9pm, Venetucci Home will be hosting a cocktail party along with the members of Wedding Row. The event will showcase vignettes of furniture that will be staged as inspiration for your wedding, home or lifestyle.
We will be using different furniture and interior vignettes designed by Venetucci Home to set the inspiration for a wedding, your home or lifestyle. Each vignette will have a mood board designed by Sarah True of True Event and include such elements as a wedding gown, a bouquet of flowers, stationary pieces, and even a wedding cake—all that incorporate the feel of the vignette.
Our goal is to show that design inspiration can come from anywhere. Even with our wedding focus, guests will garner inspiration that they can apply to their homes and lifestyle. It will be a night for anyone interested in fashion and interior design.
To rsvp to the October 27th event, contact True Event at Becca@trueevent.com.

With the pace things have been running at over the last couple of months it was so nice to slow down this past weekend and enjoy a few days of absolutely gorgeous Fall weather, it felt like Summer on Saturday.
A really good friend of mine sent me this song last week that was so perfect for the way I had been feeling lately! I just had to share as you all get ready to begin the week. When I go out for a run it plays at least 3 times on repeat, and I am instantly re-inspired, and ready to go again. Happy Monday!

Middle Sister Red (a wine made for me)
Being the middle sister in a family of three sisters, when I saw this wine on the shelf there was no way I could walk by it without picking it up. I am not usually a sucker for wine labels but how adorable is the label?! and so perfectly named Rebel Red. (there are also 8 other adorable "sister wines")
When I got home I poured myself a glass and looked up the wines online, and not only was it a rather enjoyable red table wine (simple and straightforward, but perfect for a casual night at home) but as a company they donate a minimum of $10,000 annually to following organizations dedicated to promoting and supporting sisterhood.
A wine made for middle sisters, cause lets be honest we deserve one, and even better one that gives back to organizations supporting women. I may be biased but this is a wine you will want to try, or gift to the middle sisters in your lives. Happy Friday! Cheers to another gorgeous fall weekend in New England.
Did you know that birth order is commonly believed to have a profound and lasting effect on psychological development? And that the middle sister has a greater chance of having a special wine named just for her? A sassy blend of our three favorite red varieties perfect for sipping before, during and after our favorite family meals. Some people are just born lucky. Now give me back my blouse.
what’s in it?
38% Zinfandel, 34% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah, 2% mixed red varietals.
100% California grapes with 42% from the Lodi appellation.
how was it made?
Warm ferments (70-83ºF) mixed frequently for extraction of deep color and dark fruit characters.
...ripe red and dark berry fruits like plum, blueberry and blackberry. Sassy dash of black and white pepper with a dollop of crème de cassis.
...a huge mouthful of ripe summer berries. The fruit goes on and on, ending in a luxurious finish.
Roasts, grilled meats, pizza, pasta, salmon, burgers, burritos, soups and sandwiches.

I am so sorry I have been so mia from blogging the past few months! This season has been truly memorable, exhausting at times, but really amazing! We have been so lucky to have worked with the most fabulous couples this year and continue to finish out the season with a few that I am so excited just thinking about.
I was thrilled the other day when Justin and Mary released images from a wedding we worked on in July. The detail and design woven throughout the wedding from the paper to the linens, to the pillows, couches and vases, flowers, favors and dresses, no detail was missed. This wedding is one that still makes me smile, we had so much fun working together in the process. Congratulations Kerry and Andrew!!
