So Long Farewell......

Image found via oh hello friend

I woke up this morning to huge flakes of fluffy white snow drifting and dancing past my windows.
It was yet another day of school closings and unplowed streets causing delays for everyone in Connecticut.
But then the sun came out...
Cloudless bright blue skies as far as the eye could see and fresh clean white snow blanketing the ground.

It made me realize that for every goodbye there is a hello..

So as this may be a goodbye and the last True and Wesson post..

There are 2 new hellos...

So run don't walk...become fans, bookmark them and subscribe to

Now you honestly didn't think we could leave you without a little song and dance number...

ENJOY and THANK YOU for all your kind thoughts, words and support throughout the years!!

A New Year and A New Blog and Website for True Event

In the studio

This past year was one I will always remember. We had such an incredible season with some of the most amazing clients. The pictures are a huge reminder of how lucky I am to live what I love!

With the start of 2011 comes some exciting changes for True Event! We have been working hard with (A)squared studio to redesign and launch a new website and blog and while we aren't ready to share it with you all yet (teasers coming soon), we are getting close!

Another exciting change is our small team continues to grow, I am so excited to have found Miss Abby Capalbo (a recent bride of ours, that instantly became an incredible friend, and partner) She has joined True Event full time as a senior coordinator/stylist and will be going down this incredible journey with me as we live passionately through design, pursue our dreams, and along the way always remember to make time in between the work... to laugh often, shop til we drop, taste lots of new and interesting wines and run til we cross the finish... oh and always remember to be TRUE.
2011 we are ready for you to be more memorable than 2010!

Until we get the new stylish site up and running, you can find what we are up to on our new (yet temporary) blog here. And don’t you know we are kicking this week off with some of our favorite weddings from 2010. Get ready for a good healthy daily dose of delightful details!

Friday Wine Tasting... Phantom

Wine of the Week
Phantom (Bogle Vineyards)

I have always been a fan of Bogle Vineyards, especially their Cabernet Sauvignon, but their Phantom release has quickly become a new favorite. It is a blend of three unique varietals, Petite Syrah, Zinfandel and Mourvedre... definitely a winning combination!

Surrounded by over 2 ft of snow here in Connecticut this is the perfect wine for a Friday night in front of the fire.
Happy Friday Everyone! Cheers!

Tasting Notes:
Combines lush berry and fierce spice into a wine of complex character. Vivid essence of black pepper, dark fruit and juniper haunts the nose, while brighter flavors of blackberries and blueberries glance off the palate. From the shadows, toasty cinnamon and nutmeg emerge, subtly embracing the deeply luscious and succulent fruit to create a full-bodied, ruby rich wine. Captured in 1, 2 and 3 year old American oak barrels, this wine showcases the best these distinct varietals have to offer. Though the wine is remarkable now, age in the bottle will only integrate the three varietals more.

Coffee Talk Monday..Date Night Accessory

This is such a fun idea. The perfect Valentine's gift for people that have a hard time disconnecting, like me! It actually blocks incoming calls and texts from coming in. Although I don't know how long I would be able to let my phone stay wrapped up.

Friday Wine Tasting... Arrington Vineyards

For New Years this year we hopped on a plane to Nashville! One of my absolute favorite cities! After visiting in May for Libby and Patrick's wedding I was hooked, and it was the perfect place to fly to ring in the new year. During the day on New Years Eve we visited Arrington Vineyards, the winery owned by Kix Brooks. I just love visiting wineries in different states!

Perched on a hill the vineyard is gorgeous, with a wrap around deck, and tons of picnic tables spread throughout the property to sit and enjoy their wines. Inside they invite you to a complimentary tasting of four of the wines in their impressive portfolio. I really enjoyed the Viognier and Chardonnay. But the Red Fox Red and KB308 were two favorites as well. And I can't forget to mention they have some really delicious fruit and dessert wines. I loved the Encore, a rich, sweet, port style desert wine. This is a must visit if you are in Nashville! Or if you are curious and want to have wines shipped visit their website.
Happy Friday! Cheers!

Style Me Pretty's Best of 2010

Abby & Andrew

Libby & Patrick

Yesterday Style Me Pretty launched their first ever E-glossy magazine featuring the top 20 weddings of the year from 2010. I can't even begin to express how, jump up and down, let me catch my breath, excited we were to have two of our weddings selected in the top 20. Considering there have been 4 weddings featured every day for over a year, totaling just over 1,000 weddings we are so honored and humbled. A huge thank you to all the readers for your comments, tweets, love and recognition. And an extra special Congratulations to the Style Me Pretty Team that continues to impress, inspire and amaze me and thousands of readers on a daily basis. This is such a beautiful magazine and collection of events from the year.

Coffee Talk Monday..A New Year and a New Workout Plan

Every January 1st people commit to a new list of resolutions, which somehow always at the top of is "going more frequently to the gym." And it becomes ridiculously crowded for a few months and what once was enjoyable becomes more frustrating than anything else. So I decided I am going to mix it up and commit to the Tracy Anderson Method.

I have been intrigued for a while by Tracey Anderson's method, and how she has helped to transform many celebrity bodies (Gwenyth Paltrow, Courtney Cox, Shakira, etc.) Her videos, and approach to exercise are fun! Mixing cardio dance routines and strength training, using repetitive movements and your own body weight she targets all the right muscles to achieve lean muscle. I am totally obsessed! The best part about her workouts are that you can take them with you on the road, into the gym or in the comfort of your own home (some space required, especially the dance videos)

For those of you interested in trying some of the routines before investing in the DVDs this is a great site with links to some of her routines. Happy New Year!
