I am thrilled to finally be starting my own blog after guest blogging on WeddingWindow.com for the past year and a half, and am even more thrilled for the start of my event design and coordination company, Ruffles and Tweed.

I owe it all to the extremely talented Owner and Creative Director of True Event, Sarah True, and the amazingly creative and inspiring Owner of Chocolate Creative Design, Lucinda Wesson, who also just launched a lovely blog, glitter, glue & fireflies

My journey into the fabulous world of wedding planning started about 3 years ago – I was in the process of planning my own wedding and loving every second of it, when one of my dearest and oldest friends, Elizabeth Spatafora, suggested that I contact Sarah, who we both went to college with, since she was involved in wedding planning and could be a good source of inspiration (Liz, thank you from the bottom of my heart for that little push that has blossomed into something I never expected).

The rest is history – that single act led to the most amazing 3 years of working and collaborating with both Sarah and Lucinda at a variety of breathtaking venues in Connecticut, including my all-time favorite, Island Farm on Elihu Island – the most magical place to get married. And thanks to Lucinda’s faith in me, I am now the Coordinator/Designer for Elihu – I couldn’t be more ecstatic, thankful, blessed, and optimistic for this incredible opportunity. 

So, thank you for joining me as I share my adventures in wedding planning, highlights from the Island weddings, and all things that inspire me – from photography, to fashion, to life in general.

I highly encourage feedback, so comment away! You can also reach me at adrienne@rufflesandtweed.com.
