Horse and Carriage Wedding


If your looking for something unique for your wedding day, we highly recommend Allegra Farm and their Horse and Carriage…. Our recent clients Juliana & Andrew did!


We’ve had the pleasure of working with John Allegra and his staff, on numerous occasions over the last 20 years. Now in their fourth decade, Allegra Farm is the largest authentic “livery stable,” in Connecticut, catering solely to those who desire a unique experience with a bygone era.  Allegra Farm is home to the Horse Drawn Carriage and Sleigh Museum of New England, and full time carriage service is their only business. From the carriages to the horses, proper attire to proper etiquette, the meticulous eye for historical detail will carry you away to the Victorian Age.


Virtually every carriage, in addition to being a true antique, has a history of having transported famous actors or individuals in numerous movie or television productions. Movie productions are a specialty, including Steven Spielberg’s “Amistad”, “The Time Machine”, and “Kate and Leopold.” Television appearances have included, “Sex in the City”, and “Ed”.


Contact John Allegra at Allegra Farm by calling 860-537-8861

8 Questions for Your Possible Venue that Aren’t Even on Your Radar


To many couples, a venue is one of the key factors in planning your wedding, the space you rent sets the scene. You wouldn’t have a garden wedding in a castle or an elegant black tie affair with 300 people in a small barn with the capacity of 150. So what questions do you have to ask in order to have the wedding you want.


Heidi Hanson from Always and Forever Weddings as well as Kia Martinson from Estoccasions have been wedding event planners for years. They have helped more couples than we can count start their wedding day off without a hitch. And here is what questions they say you can’t forget to ask while searching for a venue.


  1. What is the capacity?? Some venues can only fit up to 150 people while other venues can fit up to 300. If you are planning on inviting 300 people don’t try to squeeze that many people into a 150 person venue, it would be rather uncomfortable and cause some awkward uninviting.

  2. Is there a Wedding Party Suite/Getting Ready Room? To some people this isn’t a big deal, but to others it is a make it or break it. In retrospect it is always nice to get ready on property.

  3. If there is a wedding the day before? Many venues get booked with multiple weddings on one weekend. So that means that your Saturday wedding might be sharing the same weekend with a Friday and Sunday Wedding. Make sure you check because that changes when and if you can do a rehearsal the day before and the amount of time you have to set up.

  4. If you can set up ahead of time? A couple venues let you set up the day before but many venues give you just that day. Make sure that you have enough time to set up for your wedding.

  5. When you have to be out of the Venue? It’s the end of your wedding, your exhausted and you just found out that everything that is yours has to be out of the venue that night…stressful right? Well you don’t have to worry because you already asked this question and you know that you can come back and pick up all of your things by noon the next day. Make sure you find out what your venue’s policy is that way you aren’t stressing the night of.

  6. What decorations are allowed or not allowed? Some venues do not allow you to have real candles, confetti, rice, sparklers, etc. So before planning your big exit filled with confetti and rice throwing make sure your venue allows you to do that.

  7. Back up spaces? If you are having a ceremony or cocktail hour outside and it rains what are your options? Should you have a tent on reserve or is there a place you could move to inside? All good questions to ask and be prepared for your wedding day.

  8. Cancellation Policy? We really hope that no one will ever have to use the answer to this question but trust us we have seen it happen. Make sure you know just in case anything comes about.

Of course there are the questions that need to be asked such as pricing, catering and what vendors they recommend. But we hope that the questions above allow you to come away from the venue search with the understanding and knowledge of everything you get when you book your venue.


Much love! Engaged New England

5 Creative Tablescapes by Terri Krisavage Wedding and Event Florals


From signature cocktails to wedding hashtags, a couple holds complete creative control over their big day. Tablescapes are a major aspect of any event and can be designed and decorated in countless ways.  We have found a handful of fabulous and unique tablescape ideas to spark some inspiration for you!


1.Beautiful Branches: How striking are these tree centerpieces? They add incredible height to the table, along with a natural appearance-perfect for a lush look!


2. Classic and Clean: This blue brushed tablescape is a classic example of the beauty in color palettes. Bouquets of white roses and blue hydrangeas line the center, varying in heights adding character to the look, while bright lemon wedges break up the scheme and add a burst of color


3. Earthy Elements: Centerpieces of hydrangeas, roses, and ranunculus line these banquet style tables, drawing attention to classic spring florals. Natural looking nests rest along the table as well, bringing a certain earthy charm to the décor. It’s clear that by combining blue bird eggs, a pink and blue color scheme and bunches of blooms, spring has definitely sprung here all throughout this private event!


4. Rustic Romance: Your eye may be drawn to the overflowing flowers along these tables, but the small sweet details really tie this look together! Hydrangea stems were sprinkled along the center, throwing off the symmetry of the two rustic candles, and blooming bouquets!


5. Exotic Appeal: These vibrant tablescapes really showcase the endless possibilities when it comes to wedding décor. The lively colors pop against dark linens, adding lovely contrast to the look. Exotic orchids and classic rich roses blend together in a beautiful way in both the tall and short centerpieces. Including giant palm leaves to the tall pieces brings wonderful textures to the table as well!


A wedding allows a couple to personalize the celebration of their love in endless ways, and a fabulous tablescape can only add to the creativity! We hope some of these décor designs have helped inspire new ideas for your next event!
