Kristen & Craig: An Exquisitely Spectacular Berkshires Lake Wedding. 1


When I say everything came together to make this wedding something very special, I mean everything! From the location and vendors, to the dress, the weather, and, of course, the beautiful bride and her doting groom, this was a wedding for the ages and one this party planner will never forget. For the sake of posterity, let’s review Kristen and Craig’s Berkshires Lake Wedding starting with the preparations for the big day.

There were so many special moments, but these stuck out for their genuineness. There is nothing like a groom or bride’s best friends, both human and canine, wishing them well on their wedding day.

There was a runway for the wedding party to make spectacular entrances.

Colored sand helped symbolize the coming together of these four special people into one beautiful family unit.

No stone was left unturned, from the commemorative candles to the sign-in oar and custom card box, to the incredible florals and greenery, to the beautiful blue glassware, this was my kind of decor. Everything matching and complimentary, creating the perfect setting in which to dine and dance with the very newly-weds.

Those who left us too early were not forgotten.

    This was the best planned wedding that I have attended. The day was perfect, sunny and warm. When Kristen walked down the isle she was glowing from head to toe.. Kristen is our beautiful granddaughter, so the wedding of these two people was a special day for us. When Kristen married Craig my husband and I became great grandparents to Craig’s two children. I could not love them more if they were my flesh and blood. We came all the way from Florida for this special day. We wish Kristen and Craig many happy and healthy years together. These two people were made for each other, they are sole mates.
