Tricia and Tyler // Naples romantic garden wedding

posted on: Tuesday, February 23, 2016

Pouring over the photos Justin DeMutiis took on Tricia and Tylers wedding day, has me giddy all over again.  I love love loved this whole day.  It's one that has me smiling about even almost two years later.  They picked the Hotel Escalantes in Naples as the venue (catering too), and I about died on our first site visit when I saw it.  It is such a beautiful, intimate space.  When you step in you don't feel like you are in Florida, but in a quaint little place in Europe.  It was a dream!  I had a lot of fun working with Tricia and her mother over the course of that previous year.  They were such lovely people to work with, and I feel that made every vendor so much more invested in their day.  Justin came a couple hours early (that rarely happens with photographers!), and truly gave everything to capturing the day just right.  I can't say enough good things about Justin - he's definitely one you'd want to have around on your wedding day.  He is so kind, fun to be with, and his photography is beautiful.  Tricia looked drop dead gorgeous in her dress Sarah Janks gown.  AND i loved Tylers white jacket.  So classic.  Tricias mom, Patty, collected all of the brass and the florentine trays.  She must have collected a hundred.  It was so pretty to see it all come together!!
live moss letters that Victoria adorned with flowers.
ribbon corsages!
amsale bridesmaid dresses!
I loved the champagne bar for the ladies
what a good looking bunch
shannon did an incredible job on the invitations.  still my favorite crest!  you can see more of this suite here!  
I loved that their sweet dog, Tenny, was there for the whole nuptials!
these nuage linens were so pretty.  we ended up putting a little uplighting underneath them for a bit of a glow.  I usually cannot stand uplighting, but this was really romantic feeling.
a bourbon bar!
what a beauty!
this image kills me!  everything.  Plus that mondo grass (my favorite!!)

It's been a while!  Yes I have retired. ha.  at the ripe age of 32, so I can focus on my family for now.  But I still love weddings and there's so much I'd still like to share about them here!
Just wanted to say hello if anyone is still out there wondering about Sarah Tucker Events (: 
I hope y'all are well, and I hope to blog more in 2016 about all that locked up wedding inspiration.  Gotta get it out somewhere!

"Rent The Runway" // perfect for bridesmaids

posted on: Monday, June 9, 2014

There's a lot of thought that goes into bridesmaid dresses.  And it can take up some serious mental real estate during the planning process.  You want to make all of your gals happy; don't want them to pay too much and of course want them to feel/look good on the day as well!  If I were getting married today (to the same guy!) I would really consider Renting the Runway which lets you rent designer gowns for a fraction of the price.   In fact, I'd go with this dress in particular - combining my love for metallics and the softest shade of turquoise.   It's genius!  Just pick the dress, they send you two sizes, and after the wedding it zips back to their warehouse in New York.  Below are my favorite picks for weddings!


Invisalign® - pin it to win it

posted on: Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Let's chat teeth, shall we?  I have had braces twice.  My parents could be summering in France for the amount they forked over for my teeth... twice.   The first time was during second grade, which was actually OK because if there is ever a cool time to have braces - it is second grade.  I wore those metal contraptions with pride!  Then because I have such awesome teeth genes (this is completely and utterly sarcastic) those braces came back on during all of middle school when awkwardness was at an all time high for me (for everyone, maybe?!).  I definitely didn't get my first kiss until long after they were off.  And now here I am, thirty, with a snaggle tooth, begging for Invisalign®.  Dropping hints at my husband like it is hot.  All because I was twenty and irresponsible and didn't wear my retainer.  JB thinks I'm being dramatic about my snaggle tooth but whatever (I'm not!), and the request for Invisalign will continue until he agrees that the snaggle tooth has gotten out of control I annoy him until he can't take it any longer.

The obsession all started with seeing what Invisalign did for my best friend.  And ever since then Invisalign Aligners have been on my Christmas list slash list of needs.   What's amazing is she didn't even take them off for her wedding!  We all insisted that it made her teeth look whiter, and one of our friends exclaimed "it makes you have a sexy pouty lip".  So while she could have had them off for her wedding, they stayed on!  And no one but us bridesmaids even knew!  Proof is in the pudding y'all, there she is - wearing her Invisalign - looking like thee most stunning bride that ever existed.  period.  did I mention, she's wearing her Invisalign (!!!).  check out the whole wedding right here.

Everything about this wedding was gorgeous and Katie Lopez captured it to perfection.  You know by now how much of an honor it was to plan with Ali & Ryan every step of the way - they have become such treasures to me!  I am so grateful they picked me and thankful to call them friends!
We are just thrilled to be featured on Style Me Pretty!  But I wanted to share with you what might be my favorite photo of the day.  That's Ali's mom, dad, and abuela.  Their cheeks probably hurt from smiling so much.  
 And that, friends, is what weddings are all about.  
You know I love pretty, but marriage and family always win for me.  every time.
